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.
    And if he did that you would call him a quitter just like Sarah Palin, who quit for the same reason.

    There is only so much a President can accomplish with a Congress ruled by the opposite party. There is only so much compromising one can do till he loses himself.

    Morning Mason, if Christie is asked to resign from the position of head of the RGA it will be because the majority of Republican governors want him to. I don't believe Palin was ever the head of the RGA.

When you have a governor being covered in a bad light nationally, it hampers their ability to raise the needed funding for the RGA. Do you remember the coverage that the MSM dedicated to the Mark Sanford scandal? Every night it was on the nightly news. More time was dedicated to that story about his infidelity than all the broken promises/abuse of powers in the first year of the Obama administration. While all this was going on Mark Sanford, governor of South Carolina was also the head of the RGA and was asked to step down and Haley Barbour of Mississippi took his place. Why? because of the scandal plaguing Sanford making him ineffective. By the way Sanford was also seen as a real contender for the next presidential election before the scandal broke. You can always count on the MSM to cover a story ad nauseam if it will make Republicans look corrupt. It's a crying shame they didn't do such in depth reporting on Obama in vetting him prior to the election and during his first term. For if they had done their job, good chance he never would have been elected in the first place.

    what IS noticed is that you have been unable to identify any other republican candidate who has a genuine shot a winning the presidential race in two years
    the reich wing seems intent on eliminating from contention the only GOP candidate who can snatch the white house from the democrats' grasp
    it makes no sense
    to undercut the only republican prospect who has an opportunity to win the white house
    yet, that is what is happening
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    With republicans like Christie, who needs democrats?

    He is a dem. Run him or a dem, produces the same result, a democrat. One just uses republican funds to get in office, and the other uses bought votes from the uneducated.

    so, what you are saying that you would prefer hillary to run and win against a GOP candidate who has no chance, but has been ideologically vetted as "pure" conservative, tea party adherent, whatever
    like last time around, this is the reich wing GOP's opportunity to again snatch defeat from the jaws of white house victory

    If the GOP runs another RINO that can't energize the base, it's a guaranteed loss. Romney couldn't get the base to get off the couch. His campaign was square and textbook. He ran against a campaign rockstar, the GOP couldn't produce a viable contender (although I dare say, Rubio at the time could have done some damage).

    Christie is a guaranteed win for Hillary. 100%. He doesn't have a shot in hell, she will own him in debates.
    Rand...now Rand on the other hand....he's largely a centrist on social issues. He's young, pro-drug reform, pro immigration reform, pro freedom across the boards, and well liked. He's made some waves, gained a TON of fans, certainly sharp as a tack, and has the support of the base whole heartedly. The GOP needs to go "all in" on this one. He CAN debate her. Christie simply isn't there mentally, he's not on her level. Hillary is a lot of things, but stupid is not one of them. Don't run an ogre against her.

    Excuse me but I don't believe it is the Right that caused these scandals for Christie. And it isn't the Right that is covering them ad nauseam in the media. It isn't the right forming a lynch mob in New Jersey to go after him. It is the Democrats. They are the ones hurting him.

    According to the survey, Christie, who's seriously considering a White House bid, trails former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, 38%-46%, in a hypothetical 2016 general election matchup. The Governor had a one point 42%-41% margin over Clinton in Quinnipiac polling last month. The biggest shift is among independent voters who were split between Christie and Clinton in December but now go for Clinton by a 15-percentage point margin.

    Last month, by a 49%-31% margin, voters said Christie would make a good president. Now they are divided.

    From the current polling Christie could not beat Hillary Clinton. So the campaign against Christie designed by the Democrats and promoted by the MSM seems to be working. So if they can manage to keep him embroiled in controversy as they have managed to do the past month, it won't get any better for him. So maybe you should start looking for another "savior".
