    Re: If Christie runs, will he win the Republican nomination for president?

    Hmm I read a very interesting take on Christie and his supporters. The gop right does not want Romney but they know hes looking more like the nomimee...they dont believe they can control him in office and bend him to their will. Christie while knowing his liberal in some areas can beat romney and they can promote christie via the right media outlets...the big guys will shower christie with Gifts and donations and sing songs of praise to make him beholding...then if he wins mold him into what they want him to be.....and that makes sense to me to a degree....

    The ONLY way that Christie gets the nomination is IF Romney starts winning. Christie is only palatable to the wacko right-wing as an alternative to Romney....otherwise the radical right-wing base of the party will push for one of the more fringe candidates like Bachman or Perry....and Palin (when she decides to run).

    How is Christie more Palatable than Romney to those who are opposed to liberal idiocy? He is anti-2nd amendment, he comments on illegal immigration suggest he is for illegal immigration, he is for civil unions which is a paper coated term for marriage,and he believes in the man made global warming fairy tale religion.These are views a liberal idiot supports not a conservative.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That you JR....you just proved my point. The radical right-wing will oppose Christie in the same way that the oppose Romney. The difference is that evangelicals hate mormons more than muslims and will support Christie if the alternative is Romney.

    Guy, you may have missed it, but in an earlier post you told me that Romney was the only man capable of saving the nation from greater economic peril. You said:
    Romney is stronger on the economy than Obama, and the economy is the central issue of this election. Obama cannot win on those terms.
    I don't know that that is true. You obviously know more about it than I do. Clue me up. Tell me how you know that Romney is stronger on the economy than Obama. How are they different, and what will the results be under Romney. I'll read every word you post on the matter.

    So you are saying you would support a democrat candidate who is actually pro-2nd amendment, believes that global warming is something that occurs naturally regardless of how minute or severe those changes are, against gay marriages, and against illegal immigration and that anyone who wouldn't support him is a left wing loony?

    You are missing the point. I'm not saying the the radical right will LOVE Christie....but if it comes down to Christie or Romney, they will throw their support to Christie in a heartbeat. The evangelical hatred of mormons is waaaaay too strong....that they would ever allow Romney the nomination. Its just that simple.

    Romney is just as liberal as Christie.
    Romney favors pact by states on emissions - The Boston Globe
    Massachusetts health care reform - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The Mitt Romney Deception


    People oppose Romney because he is a lib not because he claims to be a Mormon. So I ask you this question again- So you are saying you would support a democrat candidate who is actually pro-2nd amendment, against abortion, believes that global warming is something that occurs naturally regardless of how minute or severe those changes are, against gay marriages, and against illegal immigration and that anyone who wouldn't support him is a left wing loony? No democrat and no lib in their right mind would vote for a democrat who had those views unless they were die hard party idiots who could care less how conservative that democrat is.

    I voted "No." I believe that when his beliefs become better known, many conservatives will not vote for him.
