    O.K. but frame the discussion that way.

    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.
    He negated that place with his immigration position. Bachmann is far more socially conservative and she's getting no support.

    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 seriously doubt he will ever run. He doesn't look healthy and with his asthma he could literally tip over and die any moment. Most revealing was the limo waiting for him when he went to see his son play baseball.

    that's not what I said. I aid I don't think a guy that's half Italian & Roman Catholic can win the GOP nomination.

    why? too much anti-Catholic sentiment, too many stereotypes about Italians & the Mafia and Jersey.

    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?
