Ironically Christie's attitude about his weight is one of the few Republican qualities left about him-mind your own business and don't worry about my personal health.
When Christie shook his tin cup infront of the president he simply lost political loyalty. Loyalty to constituents is good but politicians need to remember they are backed, voted in and paid to fight for their constiuents a certain way.
Lots of people who weren't fans of Christie (myself included) could not but grudginly admire his determination to do what "he thinks" is right. This isn't the first time he butted heads with the teabiscuit idiots and fanatics in his party. He took the same drilling from them when he lowered the flag for Whitney Houston's funernal.

Whether you agree with the man or not you can't help but admire a person demonstrating something all to missing in politicans today and that's CHARACTER! He has the ability to win independent cross over votes and what do the dumb pubs do but kick him to the curb, lol.

It's because the Republicans biggest desire, is to win back the Whitehouse....But, they have very few truly viable future candidates....Someone who could appeal to both sides, more like a candidate for America, than someone who clung to petty, partisan theory.....Chris Christie is the very best example of the exact qualities, that have been so lacking in previous candidates.....Lose him, and they lose alot...and not just girth...lol...

Exactly and that's why their party is doomed. They're irrational and unless they allow the moore moderate and sane members of their party, like Christie, to be out front and center, we're going to see the demise of their party. These people cannot be taken seriously. Malkin (our founding fathers worked tirelessy to free the slaves?) are you kidding? Santorum in league with the Pope. Cain borrowing a financial remedy from Sims? Keyes, almost discharged for treason and mad as a hatter. These are the spokesperson and candidates they're putting forth and they can't grasp that not only are these people stupid but loons? Not that I care or have sympathy. This makes me extremely happy.

bappie, i would'nt write off the republican party, so soon....Bobby Jendal, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and Colin Powell have all stated the real need for the party to change from within....to stop the mean-spirited partisanship and move more toward the center....No one ever mentions it, but we should all wonder if, an partisan agenda-driven force like Fox, has actually had a positive or negative effect on how they have governed and their reputation with the majority of Americans.....

The republicant primary will be the presidential election just as was this past election. The professional grobbler will win after a fight. The primary attention will either kill or escalate a solid presidential run for the republicants.
The early odds favor a GOP primary that is played by the viseral rules of engagement the Democrats used to employ, recall Carter vs. Kennedy. Producing a divided party in the fall. There is a fair chance that the liberatarian wing is shut out that the liberatarian votes could defect to the third party.
If the GOP can possibly produce a united front behind a moderate ticket the Democrats will be in trouble...How about Christie\Jindal?

BOB WOODWARD: A 'Very Senior' White House Person Warned Me I'd 'Regret' What I'm Doing
Brett LoGiurato | Feb. 27, 2013, 6:53 PM |

Bob Woodward said this evening on CNN that a "very senior person" at the White House warned him in an email that he would "regret doing this," the same day he has continued to slam President Barack Obama over the looming forced cuts known as the sequester.
CNN host Wolf Blitzer said that the network invited a White House official to debate Woodward on-air, but the White House declined.
"It makes me very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters,'You're going to regret doing something that you believe in,'" Woodward said.

Unless America is in a full blown downturn with enough people affected, no middle of the road candidate will win. They just did that, twice.

you seem to have contradoicted yourself in the second paragraph. would you like to restate or retract?
New Jersey voters and national Republicans thought Christie was a hardline conservative. He obviously is not. If he were a true conservative politician he would've found a way to get the federal aid without grobbling(which is a problem in itself).

When he openly gushed over the president to appease beachfront residents as a so called "professional" politician he should've realized the implications of his behavior. He could've gotten federal aid without the theatrics.

I expect more from a so called "professional" politician. What's going to happen if he were elected president. Is that how he would deal with heads of state or negotiate treaties.

I still want to know exactly why he grobbled. Was something held over his head or did he over react to a perceived threat.

did you possibly mean 'grovel'? what is grobble?

when you say he gushed over Obama, you mean when he honestly described the job Obama did? would it have been more conservative to lie? i guess we know what you mean by conservative....

not being invited to BaggerPAC is how you know you're still rational and sane. This may well BOOST Christie's chances of the next Presidential nomination, since the Party hasn't yet shown itself willing to give the nomination to the Loon Wing....:)

Yes grovel would be the formal word to use.

Christie did openly gush to the point of exaggeration. His response was an overly joyish if not a butt kiss reaction of relief. Was he relieved because he got Obama to make an appearance or he finally caved in to certain requests.

Just came out recently that Bob Woodward was 'threatend' by administration aides. Also have always thought Judge Roberts was leveraged into the Obama care vote. Makes you wonder if Christie and/or New Jersey was leveraged in someway. You would hope Christie would call out the adminstration if they were leveraged or purposely delayed but his gushing tells me he'll suck butt before he fights. Just another want to be.

In the private workplace he would be written off as a butt sucking ladder climber if he openly gushed like that twards upper management.
