And that was the reason behind Cuccinelli's statement. There are several Republican governors that would be very effective as head of the RGA that don't have a bridgegate following them around.
    seems like members of the GOP, like this fellow who was unable to even prevail in a governorship election, are circling the wagons ... after christie has been thrown under them
    republicans are eating their young
    and in this instance, it happens to be the only legitimate GOP contender for the white house in the next election
    why would they do that ... unless they have come to believe that christie is dirty and unelectable going forward

Big government Republicans offer the people no real choice. But big government Republicans like to pander to the conservatives for their vote talking all that jive conservatives love to hear about fiscal responsibility, lower taxation, balanced budgets, and then once they are elected they do the opposite just like your beloved McDonnell did. Stand for something or fall for anything.
    I think I'll stick with Ronald Reagan and consider those who agree with me 80% of the time to be friends and allies.

    Mercy, Christie isn't the only "legitimate" GOP Presidential contender! But I have wondered about the Republicans devouring their own. The question for some conservatives, though, is whether Christie is one of their own.

    It is no secret there is a divide between Republican elites and conservatives within the Republican party. It is also no secret Republican elites like big government almost as much as Democrats. The conservatives are the only ones who have been the brakes if you will of trying to stop the feckless spending. Christie has a big mouth and has made a lot of unsavory comments toward conservatives and libertarians who find themselves on the right side of the aisle. During Sandy he really showed his ass when the House refused to pass more aid money to the victims of Sandy due to all the feckless spending the Democrats attached to the bill. Christie went off because the money was being held up and blamed the conservatives for not just passing the bill as it stood with hundreds of millions of dollars of bull**** attached to it by Democrats in the Senate. He was an absolute big mouth pompous ass over the whole ordeal. I disagree with your assumption that Christie is the only viable candidate.

    I think this is an indicator that the TP revolt is alive and still a big ol' wrecking ball. Many hard right CONs in here has said better none than a RINO. The days of a unified, polite, dignified GOP are no more, perhaps they will return but not at the moment. I believe some TPs see Christie as a liberal appeaser so any excuse to get rid of him before the primaries is good to go.

    But to call Christie the only legitimate contender this far out? Dunno about that

    I too am an admirer of Reagan. And I do believe the big government lovers in the Republican party, Rockefeller Republicans (the blue blood elites) hated his guts.

    i look forward to seeing your list of every other GOP member who has a legitimate shot at the white house

    this time, if you come back with nothing, you will have been correct

    If you were an admirer of Reagan you would not be so active betraying his legacy.

    then share with us a list of every GOP member who can WIN the white house in 2016

    i bet there will be no name on that list other than christie (which will now require an asterisk)
