  •  Christie will never win any office outside of NJ (1+ / 0-)

    It's a complete village fantasy. Christie's political viability is based on the fact that he's a huge fish in a microscopic pond. He got where he is by beating the crappiest of Democrats without facing any challenge from the right. In a national GOP primary, he'll be crushed like a grape. He won't break ten percent anywhere outside the northeast. He'll follow the same trajectory as Huntsman and Giuliani. In other words, he'll "run for president" in the sense of hanging around New Hampshire, signing books, sampling maple syrup, and boosting his national profile. He's a big crowd-pleasing loudmouth, so he'll get a lot of free publicity. He'll fire off a few crotch-grabbing zingers in the debates, serve up a few months of gabbagoo to the tire-swingers, and then drop out.
