Comments on: Has Chris Christie swung the election for Obama? http://blogs.reuters.com/nicholas-wapshott/2012/10/31/has-chris-christie-swung-the-election-for-obama/ Wed, 26 Nov 2014 19:47:54 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: PhillyJimi http://blogs.reuters.com/nicholas-wapshott/2012/10/31/has-chris-christie-swung-the-election-for-obama/#comment-71 Thu, 08 Nov 2012 07:36:33 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/nicholas-wapshott/?p=48#comment-71 Christie gets it! The rest of the old Archie Bunker types in the GOP don’t get it. Christie is the answer for the New GOP. He understand how to reach out to the moderate Obama supporters that the rest of the GOP has completely turned off with their Guns and God party.

Christie in 2016!

He is smart enough to know not to give even a hint of dragging thousands of his troubled voters and their pain into the hot Presidential race. He played it smart both politically and for the welfare of his hurting citizens. Well done.

Romney is out of this discussion, he is nothing but someone running for office, and he cannot help anyone unless you think trashing President Obama is helping people who need help.

New Jersey was devastated. Christie needs all the Federal aid he can get and N.J. will still have to spend well and beyond that for the restoration. This raises Christies cred nationally to voters of both parties. Romney will probably loses and Christies expects to have to work with the Obama aadministration for the next four years.
And, Christie wants to run in 2016. He can’t run as a Republican if Romney wins so that pushes him out to 2020. An Obama win lets Christie start his campaign for 2016 as soon as this election is over.

He is a rumbustious fellow who sometimes really irritates me when he is so rude to anyone who dares to criticize him. But he is fun to watch and frankly, i would rather get insulted by Christie than get a handshake from Romney; the last is only a meaningless encounter in the middle of the night, the first is a memory that you can share over a drink with friends and have a good laugh.

That can’t be good for Mitt.

Three words: Obama’s retail politics.

It sounds like Christie never heard anything from Romney, while Obama parachuted into New Jersey with all of the Federal largesse he could offer. That left Christie with no reason to like Romney and no reason to hate Obama. It’s difficult to image Romney carrying New Jersey at this point, but it wasn’t smart for Romney to make that part of it so obvious to Christie.

People who think for a living will put this theory in the category of Romney’s surge was as factual as Romney’s tax cuts and budget plans, and statements on where Jeeps will be built. He is a fake pandering old fool and his repeated lies and position shifts are the reasons he is losing, but glad Christie gave you pundits another week of blathering about stuff you just make up.

Romney lost this all on his own when he did the fake food drive in Ohio. 60 million people hit by a hurricane and he’s doing some hoakie, staged swing-state rally the next day. That event hi-lighted the the general dismissiveness and impotence of Mitt Romney.
