O.K. but frame the discussion that way.That is why social conservatives have always had more of an influence over the party than fiscal conservatives, and that obsession by the base with social and cultural issues (even with an economy as bad as it is) could hurt a social moderate like Christie.
He negated that place with his immigration position. Bachmann is far more socially conservative and she's getting no support.Think about it, Perry is not the most fiscally conservative guy in the race, but he is certainly one of the most socially conservative candidates.

Ok seems christie is not going to run...
But those close to the governor say any suggestion that he would get into the 2012 race are wrong and simply the product of wishful thinking.

Christie is Roman Catholic & half Italian. This means he has ZERO chance of getting GOP let alone Tea Party support.
I was a little bit in favor of Chris Christie before but didn't he say absolutely that he wasn't going to run this time? How can we trust him on other issues if he goes back on his word this time?
