    Cuccinelli says Christie should quit RGA

    The circular firing squad commences firing

    Cuccinelli says Christie should quit RGA

    As if a snowed-out inaugural bash weren't bad enough, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie also took a shot Tuesday from Virginia Republican Ken Cuccinelli, who said that Christie should step down as head of the Republican Governors Association.

    "He does not serve the goals of that organization by staying as chairman,'' said Cuccinelli -- the former Virginia attorney general who ran unsuccessfully for Virginia governor last year -- on CNN's Crossfire Tuesday.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    I don't put much stock into Cooch. He evaded a true primary and lost the election for his party, so he doesn't exactly know best for the Republican Party.

    Re: Cuccinelli says Christie should quit RGA

    While I reserve judgment concerning the investigations underway with regard to Governor Christie, I don't think Mr. Cuccinelli has sufficient credibility to offer advice on this matter. Indeed, he isn't even a governor, so he is not in a capacity to discuss the goals of the RGA. Instead, his latest comments likely have much more to do with his failure to come to grips with the reality that he was not able to run a winning campaign against a flawed opponent. Very likely, continuing from his post-election comments, he is holding Governor Christie responsible for his loss.

    I think Cuccinelli has a valid point and he isn't the only one thinking Christie should step down as head of the RGA. Christie has a Democrat lynch mob after him over piling scandals. He would not be productive as someone who could go around and help raise funds for other Republican governors with all the other crap surrounding him, innocent or not. 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.

    Personally, I'm more likely to contribute if Christie is head of the RGA.

    Well there's a lot of folks out there that don't share your opinion. Just like the opinion turned on the previous governor , McDonnell, of your state who ran on "conservative ideals" and was elected by a significant margin then turned out to be anything but and lost support and respect of the voters who put him into office and now is facing a scandal of his own. Christie has been going around for some time claiming he is the true Republican. The party doesn't need someone riddled with scandals to be their poster child.

    It is Repubs like you who helped the Dems retain control of the Senate. Keep up the good work.

    Oh far from it, no requirement to even know who the hell Cuccinelli is! Just a desire to pull the trigger on a fat man. Now each member of the squad can have a whole bunch of very self- centered or promotion reasons. I can see Governor Christie having more than enough detractors in the GOP to form a company sized firing squad. I'm sure a couple of Red state governors see themselves as better fit in the Chairman's chair.

    Sort of like a drug cartel, taking out the boss is seen as a career opportunity for many underlings.

    No Jack you have that all wrong, there are many who have already figured out a big government Republican is really no different than a Democrat.For when you are no different in that respect, the one that keeps promising all the freebies (Democrat) will surely win. 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.
