    Whether he's saying and doing the right things for attention or not, I don't really care. I like him because he speaks his mind, and I generally agree with his politics.

    So I am amazed to see this post...

    Christie is a politician, he does what he does to get/stay in office. Be it attacking public unions, or his own party when it attempting to short sheet national disaster funding with 'offsets'...
    Nonetheless, the part about him being fat and an egomaniac are true.

    The part about him being slobbery is hyperbole.

    So, accusations of hypocrisy notwithstanding, truth is an absolute defense, and my assessment was true.

    I like any politician that can cross the isle and make a decision based on what works rather than ideology.

    So in the partisan world the old 'Meatloaf' song is true too... 'Two Out of three Ain't Bad'

    Course I don't see how any of your post does anything more than vent a spleen.

    Do fat people make poor political leaders?

    Egomaniac is soooo subjective I'd suggest your heavy dogmatic approach to everything colors your concept of 'the truth'.

    But just between us, doesn't someone who runs for political office have a weeeeee bit more ego than most of us????

    Anywho Governor Christie did take a stand for the people of his state. I do believe that is what they pay him to do...

    He's a pragmatist and does what makes the most sense.

    Re: Thoughts on Christie

    He didn't JUST torpedo Romney - after being his keynote speaker - and praised Obama before Obama had done anything - for which then Obama got on a plane and left for good, having gotten more then he could possibly have hoped for.

    Since then, Christie has openly condemned specifically Republicans in Congress after they would not vote for federal recovery money due to Democrats piling on all sorts of other legislation on related to the hurricane or recovery efforts.

    The end of Christie. I expect him to likely switch parties for the next election.

    All the loons on this thread are saying, essentially, they like Christie because he "crosses the aisle." Yet, the Liberals in Congress NEVER cross the aisle and receive no criticism at all from their cattle.

    Christie's actions, while earning him a pat on the head and maybe even a special treat from the loons, effectively ended any chance he had of going further with the Republican party.

    He will soon find out what others such as Arlen Spector and Charlie Christ have found, the Democrats have no Chieu Hoi program.

    Christie will never survive the Republican Primaries in 2016, where as we all know, only the crazy propsper.
