    Thanks for the link – He is probably the only candidate that could tempt me to vote Republican!

    Is this a rerun? Eyebleach-worthy Twitter pics are old news. Unless Carlos Danger is on the prowl again.

    Written by Mark Mardell, a very experienced political commentator, who has been the BBC’s North America editor since 2009. I love the line:

    “It disgusted some conservatives. He looked like a man more concerned about helping people than remaining pure to a cause.”

    Not a chance, I hope. Maybe his bullying tactics play well in East Orange, but I don’t think the national stage, or the forty-seven candidate GOP field will be as forgiving.

    Can the reasonable bully overcome the raft of unreasonable bullies in ‘16? I very much doubt it. I’m eagerly awaiting the forthcoming firefight.

    You might want to read Paul Krugman’s blog on the NY Times web site. Prof Krugman, aside from being a Nobel laureate in economics, is a New Jersey resident whjich may give him a special insight.

    Note that during President Obama;s first term, the largest infrastructure program planned, which would have created thousand of new jobs then and in the future, and provided an essential economic stimulus, was a new tunnel between NY and NJ. Gov. Christie killed it because IF there were cost over-runs, he might be reduced to raising gasoline taxes which are currently 1/3rd those of the bordering states of NY and PA. Then he asked for the money in order to do road repairs, which are supposed to be a state expense. The tunnel, like so many other infrastructure projects, is still necessary, but heaven knows when there will be another opportunity to undertake major projects while the austerity advocates are blocking road and bridge repairs let alone building. http://www.infrastructurereportcard.org/

    Good points, Samskara. Our infrastructure is crumbling and people are out of work. President Obama had a plan to correct all this but has had to deal with GOP obstructionists in a way that we have never seen before.

    To be fair to Mardell, although he doesn’t go into details like that, he does make it clear that Christie is a low tax supporter. I don’t think he is arguing that Christie is the man for president (the BBC are too impartial for that), just that he is actually electable, but that the things which make him electable as a president may cause him the most problems in the primaries.
