    Christie would have a harder time getting through.

    ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936

    •  True, which is something I'd root for (2+ / 0-)

      I think if we end up facing anyone that's not Christie then it's a benefit for us.

      I actually hope that somehow Peter King is serious about it and I wouldn't mind Scott Brown getting in either. Anything that makes it harder for Christie in those first 5 states is just fine with me.

    •  I highly doubt Brown would make any impact... (2+ / 0-)

      He'd be more insignificant than Huntsman was in 2012.  

      If you're not talking about what billionaire hedgefund bankster Peter G. Peterson is up to you're having the wrong conversations.

      •  If Brown manages to draw enough support (0+ / 0-)

        in his sort-of-home-state New Hampshire and split the moderate GOP vote with Christie, he might just suck out enough Oxygen to deny Christie the momentum of winning any early states.

        •  Brown will get 1% if he's lucky (1+ / 0-)

          He's too liberal to accomplish anything.  No one will give him money.  No one will vote for him.

          Brown would make Jon Huntsman look like a juggernaut.

    •  No, Brown wouldn't hurt Christie at all (1+ / 0-)

      Brown can't do anything.  He'd get 1% in NH on a good day.  He's too liberal......waaaaaaay too liberal.  No one will give him any money.

      Brown would make Jon Huntsman look like a juggernaut, as I said in another comment.
