    Thats a darn good question...seems the teaparty supporters arent real happy with the current crop...they want someone that is able to beat Obama and after winning fulfill their murdering of social security and medicare and medicaid and brutalizing public and govt workers wishlist and of course giving huge tax cuts to the rich and corporations.....somehow they believe Christie is more able to beat Obama than any of the others...I think they are DEAD WRONG and the one with the best chance is Romney...

    Thanks for health answer and union observation.
    He has shown that he is serious about making cuts.

    Yanno Perry I was a member of a Public Union for almost 30 yrs..and I voted straight republican and so did everyone I knew that I worked with...anyone that believes all union members voted democrat or are liberal is foolishly wrong...BUT, having said that...they attacks on unions by the teaparty supported and elected govs have changed the whole complexion of that....now ageless republican supporters are no longer that....LIKE ME....the teaparty attacked me, everything I did my entire career...called me lazy and GREEDY and told me I didnt deserve the pension that I WAS FORCED to be in by law..and 9% of my gross pay before taxs came out of my net pay after taxs for near 3 decades...now keep in mind FORCED no choice...The teaparty attacked me viciously and I am eagerly awaiting my small chance to return the favor and so are other long time staunch republican supporters.
    I did not vote for Obama...I voted for rick scott last nov...Marco Rubio and my Gop congressman nugent.....thats all changed since nov...

    And in Ohio there is a group of union members suing to not be forced to pay union dues.

    I'm not sure that Christie will be able to draw the undecided or disgruntled Democrat votes. He would have to carry the entire spectrum of GOPs to even have a chance and I really can't see that happening given his hard-line approach to both tax increases and modifications of the current 'safety-net' systems.
    I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.

    He already won. I've not resorted to making up things about him in every post.
