      No way he will ever face a Democrat in an election that requires him to win a primary.  The most inept GOP politician in the world would drive a truck through the openings Christie has provided.

    •  Doubtful he'll even run (4+ / 0-)

      I don't see how he would survive the primaries.  He has no easy path to run to the far right, the way Romney was able to do to an extent.  Not exactly strongly religious, at least outwardly, does not invoke God in his speeches a lot,  for his state he supports a form of "amnesty" on Immigration which is the right-wing's litmus test du jour nowadays.  Also, iffy statements and policy decisions on a host of right-wing favorites, like abortion, marriage equality, etc.   Then you have the "hug and embrace" and the more partisan makeup of early primaries going for others would likely spell the end of him moving forward.  

      Of course, the unmasking of Christie as nothing but a corrupt politicians who rewards his cronies and punishes adversaries with abandon, which is the complete opposite of what he was trying to portray himself as, would make me WANT him to survive the primaries and represent the GOP in the general election.  Nothing like having a boorish, angry, vindictive, corrupt white guy going for the presidency against the first woman president in the country's history.

      is disturbing. If he were a Democrat, he would have been hounded out of office by the local and national media by now, and his numbers would be in the toilet. Bet there are Democrats in NJ who still support him.
