    they will vote for him in droves just like they did with Romney; only Chris will have broader appeal because the media love him. They will create his appeal. They have done it in NJ.

    •  Not in the primary they won't (1+ / 0-)

      Romney won the primary in spite of Tea Party opposition, largely because the crazy vote got split between several candidates.

      This may be a sign of hope for Christie except Romney went on to lose the general election.  As far as the GOTP is concerned this proves that they must nominate a true fascist conservative in order to win.

      •  They always say that. (0+ / 0-)

        They said it in 2008, that McCain wasn't a "true conservative", but once he clinched the nomination, they fell in line as they always do.  
        But they have to gripe every time that the nominee isn't conservative enough for them, because that way, if he loses, they get to say "I told you so."
