    Mr. Christie is ‘too moderate’ for the conservative base. Mr. Paul may be as well, especially in comparison to Mr. Cruz from Texas. It will be interesting to see how things develop.

    So, are you now saying I’m not a Dem, not a lib, or not a Dem Lib? I could name several republicans I would prefer over Ms. Clinton, and even more Dems. If I end up voting for her, it will be because I’m voting AGAINST whoever the Reps field. And the RNC was well described by Mr. Gingrich last Wednesday, and oft proven in forums such as these. Sadly, other forums I visit, people are even more venomous and vulgar.
    Progressively and Moderately,

    Cruz is going to renounce his Canadian citizenship he said he didn’t have.

    I voted for Mr. Obama in both elections. I’m an OWG, too.

    Christie said a nice thing about Obama once and is now the enemy to the right wing.
    March in lockstep or get a bayonet to the back!

    There are far more things right with the GOP then wrong. If we were so dysfunctional we wouldn’t have the House of Representatives, most state legislatures and most of the governors.

    At these early stages, Christie is probably the least polarizing figure in the race for the White House that hasn’t even officially begun yet. He doesn’t offend the left, and will be able to draw in a lot of moderates, more so than Hillary, if he chooses to run. He could also almost guarantee New Jersey, New York, and possibly Connecticut and Pennsylvania for the Republicans.
    Of course, if the right wing of the Republican Party finds him to be too moderate, he could always be a viable third party candidate…

    The GOP only has the lower house, most state legislatures and most of the governors because the Dems are so incompetent and greedy. But, hey! At least they APPEAR to care about x.

    A lot of people voted for Obama. He was, and remains, an inspiring leader with excellent ideas. If only he had someone to talk to on the other side who was interested in doing some good for America, rather than purely stupid pointless gamesmanship to appease his own party base.

    Yeah, sorry, but that’s not a valid statement. The GOP has those houses because they beat the DEMs, which is therefore only proof that the DEMs are more dysfunctional than the GOP. It’s not a proof that the GOP is not dysfunctional. Come back and claim that people actually like them when the US election turnout goes above 90%.

    The one thing that I like about Christie over many others is that he appears to be pragmatic over everyone else’s dogmatic.

    “That is how Barry won—first voting against Bush (who wasn’t even running) then against Romney and Bush. Hard to find anyone that actually voted ’FOR” Barry."

    Mostly true. I actually voted against McCain (and especially Ms. Palin) rather than Bush, because, as you correctly pointed out, Bush was not running. I held my nose and voted against Romney. I’m still holding my nose, but I’d do it again if Romney was the opponent.

    The idea that it’s hard to find anyone that voted FOR Obama is interesting and revelatory for two reasons: one, I have NEVER met anyone who voted for Romney; they all voted against Obama (what does that say about our country, when out of over 100 million legally-qualified Americans, these two are the best we can find?); and it shreds the argument seen on these posts time and time again that the only people who voted Obama are lazy shiftless takers. If you can’t find a pro-Obama voter amongst your acquaintances, perhaps not every Obama voter is a welfare queen, eh?

    And that’s a lot to like these days. He seems like a person who thinks for himself. I may not agree with him all the time, but there are way too few like him.

    “He will never be the Rep candidate…..”

    How quickly we forget. Don’t you remember that, in the run-up to the Republican convention, even though there were at least 8 potential candidates, many Republicans were trying to interest/draft Christie? Anyone who wasn’t as intentionally unelectable…

    But, as has been pointed out, he lost all credibility with his party when he thanked Obama for helping his state’s citizens.
