    Clearly Hume means to distinguish Christie from that girly-man Barack Obama, who never puts his finger or face into another person's, even when, like meeting Jan Brewer, he has every reason to. Conservatives hate the fact they cannot get Obama riled up, and rather than see his calm, cool demeanor (not to mention his obvious respect and love for the women in his life) as an asset, they choose to trash it.

    However, as the comparison between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jerry Brown - manly man couldn't deal with CA's budget issues. 70s liberal/Alan Alda-mode Brown managed quite nicely - demonstrates, bullying is rarely a long-term effective leadership strategy. In fact, there was just a study that came out last week demonstrating that gay men make the best bosses, not that I'm bragging or anything.

      that dog whistle includes Hillary Clinton and the feminazi Democratic party.

        but the problem with such tactics is that they tend to backfire.

        I'll go with Hillary any day over Christie, and Christie is the "best" they have.  He's a petty self-serving thug and the rest are self-serving nut jobs, or to be more polite, unskillful sociopaths.

        What goes around, comes around.  Christie (misspelled it earlier for some reason - I know better) is unlikely to be able violate the law of karma. Especially as he seems to be too ham-handed!

          I hope Christie can't be rehabilitated enough for a 2016 win of his primaries.  He has a lot of bad karma coming his way. I have to admit I find Christie's manner (not to mention lack of ethics) repulsive.
