  •  This is a tough call (5+ / 0-)

    I am from NJ/NY so you've got to take what I say with a grain of salt.  And let me be clear, I wouldn't vote for this guy under any circumstances, ever, or even spend a moment considering it.

    But I can see a significant percentage of the electorate seeing those clips and thinking that he is real, being attracted to the sense of straight talk and the lack of political polish and parsed language.  I think Christie may be a much more formidable opponent than any of the other clowns in the GOP clown car . . . If the media decide to love him, this shtick of his could make his opponents seem too studied, careful, and . . . Well, politician like.

    •  this. the media is fawning over him (1+ / 0-)

      a man with one of the shittiest records in the country and in NJ history just got 60%. If people here think he is not a threat, well I can't help them. Right now, the guy has something people like; I don't get it. He stands for nothing that will help average people. Nothing.

    •  They have decided. James Gandolfini lives on (0+ / 0-)

      apologies to James, but the media loves a story, they are lazy so hey will ride the new straight talk express with glee
