Yes, Chris Christie now is essentially a Democrat or aligned with Democrats
No, Chris Christie is still a Republican and aligned with Republicans
Chris Christie is foremost a maverick or independent
Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger. ― Ron Paul

Chris Christi sounds more like an independent/moderate to me. If you despise the republicans and what they stand for, then I don't believe you can call yourself republican just because you believe republicans should be something else.

Weird that telling the truth and doing the job you were elected to do could ever make anybody think you "switched" parties thats one of the most illogical nonsensical things Ive heard in a while.
Looks like the OP has forgotten, already, the post-election "raise your profile in the Party" game that started so long ago (*cough* one and a half months ago *cough*).
I would say it's probably very telling that not a single person brought up Jindal or Rubio yet. My my, how quickly you folks forget.
