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
    same challenge. name every GOP member who has a legitimate chance to win the white house in two years

    Baloney, I am not betraying Reagan's legacy but those like you who compromise to the point you no longer stand for anything do.

    I was trying to come up with a response but you obviated any need. Good job.

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.
    I think it is nothing more than sour sniping from a man who was visibly snubbed by Christie. Christie stepping down from the RGA gives more fuel to whatever allegations are being made against him and weakens him as a future candidate. I don't want either of those things to come to pass but I could see why Cuccinelli might.

    I think Christie is weakened but not out. As far as candidates who I think have the best chance from my vantage point I'd say other than Christie the only one who at this juncture looks somewhat competitive with Hillary would be Paul Ryan. I still think Christie is the out and out favorite but a lot can and will happen between now and then. It's easier to list the few candidates who I think have virtually no chance of winning Cruz (and he deserves it), Huckabee, Santorum, and unfortunately Jeb Bush because I think he's sadly sunk by his last name.

    The last thing I read on possible candidates for the GOP came to a total of 38 viable possibilities.

    RWR compromised all the time. He had no need to compensate externally for internal feelings of inadequacy.

    If Cuccinelli was the only one calling for Christie to step down, you might have a point. Because Christie received big big bucks in his race from the RCA that was hardly challenged, the same organization, with Christie the head, refused to give Cucinelli the funds needed the last 6 weeks of his campaign that would have won the election. Instead Virginia is now in the hands of McAwful who will make sure whoever the Democrats choose as their candidate in 2016, Mc Awful will do everything in his power to be sure that state goes blue.

    Why would anyone be an admirer of one of the worst Presidents in American history? A "big government lover" was Reagan - during his years in office government jobs increased by more than 1.2 million. Contrast that growth with the reduction of 700,000+ from 2009 to 2012. National debt more than doubled.


    Since the early 90s, there has been a deliberate attempt to create the Reagan myth - it has been incredibly successful unfortunately.

    He had no choice but to compromise for most of the time of his presidency as he had a Democrat majority in Congress. Which by the way kept him from achieving what he truly wanted. next!
