Mitt Romney considering a run for US Presidential elections 2016: Mitt Romney, the Republican US presidential nominee in 2012, told a meeting of donors on Friday that he is considering another White House run in 2016, a source familiar with the comments said. The former Massachusetts governor, who has sent mixed signals about the likelihood of another campaign, told a small group of donors in New York that he was thinking about running and to "tell your friends" he was considering it, the source said. The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the comments, said Romney did not give a timetable for making a decision about whether to launch what would be his third presidential campaign. Romney failed to win the nomination in 2008 and lost the general election to President Barack Obama in 2012. Romney's statement comes as some of the party's top donors begin to line up behind Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who said in December he would actively explore a presidential run. If Romney entered the race, he ...

For years, GOP activists have insisted that their party can only return to the White House by anointing a “true conservative” as the party’s standard bearer. But a new Bloomberg Politics Poll turns that Republican precept, and a few other pieces of conventional wisdom, on its head. The poll, released Monday, tested former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s chances against five Republicans-- Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Texas senator Ted Cruz, Kentucky senator Rand Paul, and 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney-- in hypothetical 2016 presidential matchups. It found that Clinton holds solid leads over all five, which is hardly a surprise considering her overwhelming name recogntion advantage (94 percent of voters have formed an opinion of Clinton-- 52 percent view her favorably and 42 percent view her unfavorably-- while less than 80 percent have an opinion on each of the Republicans aside from the well-known Romney). - See more at:

Chris Christie has a Wall St. roadblock on his path to the White House via
Chris Christie was forced on Monday to allow a nurse being kept in a hospital quarantine tent to go home after intense White House pressure to relax a mandatory 21-day quarantine the New Jersey Governor had imposed at a state level. Nurse Kaci Hickox tested negative for Ebola, but she had remained in a forced hospital quarantine as of earlier today. New Jersey health officials announced mid morning that she would be released and allowed to travel home to Maine via private transportation. The embarrassing turnaround came after Obama chaired a White House meeting on the rules and successfully lobbied Christie's New York counterpart, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, to relax their quarantine rules – even as Americans grow more concerned about the possibility of a pandemic emergency. Cuomo gave in on behalf of New Yorkers. But as of Sunday Christie was still pushing for more aggressive measures to protect New Jerseyans, saying he had 'no second thoughts' about the policy. Christie told reporters Monday that he was just d ...
Under Pressure From the White House, Cuomo Says Ebola Quarantines Can Be Spent at Home Facing fierce resistance from the White House and medical experts to a strict new mandatory quarantine policy, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said on Sunday night that medical workers who had contact with Ebola patients in West Africa but did not show symptoms of the disease would be allowed to remain at home and would receive compensation for lost income. Mr. Cuomo’s decision capped a frenzied weekend of behind-the-scenes pleas from administration officials, who urged him and Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey to reconsider the mandatory quarantine they had announced on Friday. Aides to President Obama also asked other governors and mayors to follow a policy based on science, seeking to stem a steady movement toward more stringent measures in recent days at the state level.

This is where Chris Christie and Andrew Cuomo hold a presser and tell the White House, "No thanks, we can handle our states just fine."
Christie made a pretty good statement today that I believe. The problem is when I look at everything objectively, I see very little to support my belief. We are still the leading economy and pulling away. We have no inflation, gas prices are low so wages are not as important as they could be. The stock market is at an all time high and yet I still don't feel that Obama has done a good job. He certainly has been the most divisive leader I have ever experienced. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie launched a preemptive strike Tuesday against some potential Republican rivals for the White House, saying the "experiment" of promoting a lawmaker to president has failed—and arguing that Republicans must nominate a governor in 2016.

Political humor. Karl Rove thinks we shouldn’t have Hillary Clinton in the White House because she fell and hit her head a couple years ago, spent three days in the hospital, and maybe she has brain damage. You know, I don’t recall the Republicans being this concerned with mental fitness during the years when Reagan was talking to house plants in the White House. Yesterday Chris Christie said he thinks it would be fun to run against Jeb Bush for the Republican presidential nomination. While Jeb Bush said it would be fun just to watch Chris Christie run. Today President Obama took his 1,001st flight aboard Air Force One. And they still made him take his shoes off at security. President Obama was touring New York sites in need of repair. He wants to spend money on the infrastructure. For example, the port authority needs fixing. And the Tappan Zee Bridge, where the renovation is already finishing up way ahead of schedule – like Obama’s second term Aba deya bedya bedaya, That's all folks!!!
I'm tired of looking for a job there in New Jersey the governor is not helping as when Chris Christie was running for office he cared for the NJ residents but now he could care less there used to be 2 Rapid Realty locations in the Jersey City area but it got wiped out by supper storm Sandy in 2012 he used to say that New Jersey is better then it was he is wrong he should visit the many that don't have a home I'm glad I did not vote for him as he is a joke as there are no good jobs that pay more then minimum wage it's $8.25 it should be raised to $15 that would be a wage that works better but the republicans in the senate said now it would ruin the economy as they are wrong in November the house will be in the democrats control and keep the senate and keep the White House in 2016.

Comedian Joel McHale mocked everyone from President Obama to Chris Christie in a blistering roast at the 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner. Following are his 10 best jokes of the night. 1. "Mr. President—or, as Paul Ryan would call you, another inner city minority taking advantage of the federal government to feed and house your family." 2. "It's an honor to be here in Washington, D.C., the city that started the whole crack-smoking mayor craze." 3. "Jeb Bush might announce that he's running. Wow, another Bush in the White House. Is it already time for our every-10-years surprise for Iraq?" 4. "As it stands right now, the Republican nominee will either be Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, or a bag of flour with Ronald Reagan's face drawn on it." 5. "Chelsea Clinton is pregnant… so in nine months, we will officially have a sequel to 'Bad Grandpa.'… It also raises the question… when the baby is born, do you give Bill Clinton a cigar?" 6. "Between Rob Ford, Justin Bieber and Ted Cruz, you just want to tell C ...
The New York Times has a major story today on how many of Chris Christie's potential donors for a Presidential run are shifting to Jeb Bush who is becoming the Establishment favorite for the Republican nomination in 2016. My own sense is that Christie's candidacy is dead and that those who put George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush in the White House will try to do the same for Jeb Bush. I think that Jeb Bush is wrong about education, immigration, and foreign policy for starters. With a divided conservative movement, don't be surprised if yet another Bush becomes the Republican presidential nominee in 2016. Whatever happened to the once powerful Goldwater-Reagan conservative team? It is no more.

Arab American Institute PANDERING SEASON REARS ITS UGLY HEAD IN THE ‘SHELDON PRIMARY’ Sheldon Adelson, the staunchly right-wing pro-Israel billionaire Casino magnate, may actually be trying to buy the White House (again). In 2012, Adelson donated a total of $93 million dollars to Republican super PACs to influence the presidential elections. Now, in what’s being dubbed the “Sheldon Primary” a number of high-profile GOP candidates, including potential presidential candidates like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, are looking to court Adelson’s support for their political aspirations. Pandering season has begun, and as long as Sheldon Adelson, who is painfully one-side and downright bigoted when it comes to Israel and Palestine, is the man candidates are pandering to, things are likely to get ugly.

This is from Bill Bennett's straw poll of potential 2016 presidential candidates. If these guys are who the GOP have to run, then the Democrats will retain the White House.

Wall Street Republicans have begun their White House dance less than halfway into a second Barack Obama term they tried to prevent with record donations to Mitt Romney. As investigations slow Chris Christie, whose backers have included a troop of billionaires, donors are looking for a candidate who can replace the constraints they detest with appreciation they think is due. That’s led to fervor for Jeb Bush, admiration for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and even flirtation with Tea Party senators, according to more than a dozen interviews with fund managers, bankers and investors who open wallets for politics.

Chris Christie said it at the CPAC and it's the absolute truth. To govern, you have to win elections. To win, you have to be for something and not against something. I am a political pragmatist. Forget conservatism and liberalism. Forget *** marriage, abortion, partisan politics altogether. If a Republican is to win the White House in 2016, The ONLY things that really matter are jobs, the debt and restoring American prestige around the world. If we don't fix those problems first to the exclusion of everything else, Nothing matters. Leave those other problems alone and fix what needs fixing. Fix the problems that we all agree on. We can't afford to waste time on things that divide us right now. And guess what, after we clear the debt, create jobs and restore our primacy, those problems will still be there. I promise.
Chris Christie got STAND OVATIONS at CPAC yesterday!!..The Media has been trying to destroy him over the "Bridge scandal" in New Jersey and I think they WAY over played that situation!!..Christie will CRUSH Hillary Clinton in a debate and I truly think he is the best chance to win back the White House for the Republican Party in. 2016!
We have to keep Chris Christie away from the White House
A FACT : Chris Christie will never see the White House or ever get GOP nomination ...one simple reason .Andrew Cuomo .this man has all the dirt on Christie and the guy who stirred up the problems.Andrew Cuomo has more dirt on East Coast politicians than anyone on this planet ...they call him the GODFATHER.
I just received an email from the Tea Party Command Center entitled "2016 Poll: Who is your choice for the Presidential Nomination" and the choices include: Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul, Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, Allan West, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan. The truth of the matter is that any one of those people could do a better job than the person now occupying the White House, though I must admit, Jeb Bush’s name on the ballot would have me quite upset.

The man in question is not New Jersey’s Chris Christie, but Scott Walker, the Wisconsin Governor who many senior figures in the Republican Party expect could replace Christie as their leading candidate for the White House in 2016. However Walker’s prospects took a blow this week with the release of more than 27,000 emails held by his one-time deputy chief of staff, Kelly Rindfleisch. Most embarrassingly for Walker, who faces in an uphill battle to attract minority voters in any presidential campaign, are a clutch of racist emails shar ...
The more money Chris Christie raises, and the more established Republicans like Carl Rove try to build him up...the less I like him. Do we really need another "Democrat-lite" running for the White House? We need a Conservative, a real Conservative, with a Conservative vision and a Conservative agenda to go up against the Liberal policies that have been implemented through the last three presidents (yes, Bush is a Liberal).
Chris Christie's Contagious Political Culture seems to be the topic on all the Sunday news programs. NBC, CBS, and ABC. The scandal raises this important question: Are there other instances where the Christie administration may have misused its authority? *** YEAH! Let's not stop there. How about the Political Culture of the White House? To list a few: 1. IRS targets Obama’s enemies 2. Watching the AP 3. Rosengate 4. Black Mobs 5. Shut down of the World War II Memorial
Unaccountable Hillary Clinton Brent Bozell | Jan 24, 2014 Brent Bozell Recommend this article Recommend 216 65 CNN anchor Jake Tapper blandly admitted the obvious in a radio interview with conservative host Hugh Hewitt. The same reporters that insist their former Republican Party favorite Chris Christie is ruined for 2016 by traffic jams on a bridge are letting Hillary Clinton skate for embassy-security neglect that led to four dead government employees at Benghazi. Why would so-called watchdogs of government suggest Clinton is a shoo-in in 2016 as if Benghazi never happened? Tapper strangely suggested that Benghazi always seemed like more of a White House scandal than a State Department scandal, and I don't blame him, because Clinton didn't grant him an interview. "Hillary Clinton was on her way out, and you know, I can't tackle her," he said in self-defense. "I haven't had a chance to interview her since Benghazi happened. I don't even know, has she done interviews? I think she did some interviews on he ...
If New Jersey Governor Chris Christie must answer for four days of traffic jams on roads leading to the George Washington Bridge, surely Clinton has the same obligation to address a deadly assault that the bipartisan committee found “preventable.” Not only is it fair, given the mega-media attention paid to lane closures that were ordered up last September by aides and allies of the Republican Governor. It’s necessary, given the importance of Clinton’s role as secretary of state to any quest to win the White House.

The Chris Christie story is becoming clearer and clearer. I don’t mean the George Washington Bridge story, though thanks to people like Steve Kornacki and his MSNBC associates, that’s becoming clear as well. I mean the story behind the story. Who’s sabotaging Chris Christie to force him out of office and off the national stage? And who’s supporting him in his bid for the power of the presidency? About the latter — who’s supporting Christie’s White House ambitions — we have the invaluable Chris Hedges. Your bottom line — every mean SOB billionaire, from Wall Street to the Koch Bros, wants Christie in office. And every element of the “security and surveillance apparatus” — the NSA, the Pentagon, presumably the CIA- and FBI-aligned forces as well — also want him in power, at least as Hedges sees it. ... I won’t quote too much more of the article — but you can see I think it’s a must-read. I will give you a list, however, gleaned from the article. These people are named by Hedg ...
Has bridge scandal put an end to Gov. Christie's White House dream? - Support for Chris Christie in Fort Lee,...
In 2016, the Republican Party will salivate for a win in the presidential election after what will have seemed like an eternity of not having one of their own in the White House. Despite New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie seemingly being in the same mold as the last two failed GOP nominees (a moderate,…
Who would replace Chris Christie as the GOP establishment 2016 front-runner? If the political scandal enveloping New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) ends up derailing his 2016 White House dreams, there are several Republicans who could take over his spot as the preferred candidate of the GOP establishment. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) is probably best positioned to inherit the support of the GOP establishment, which encouraged Christie to run for president in 2012 and has been taken somewhat aback by the latest scandal. Bush has the advantage of being a two-term governor of a Swing State, and he holds the potential to attract the support of Latinos by having a Mexican-born wife and children of mixed descent. However, Bush’s baggage includes a family legacy that Republicans may want to move away from, and support of immigration proposals that many conservatives in his party flatly reject. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) is a conservative governor who won election in a blue state and even beat back a r ...
CBS White House Correspondent, Major Garrett think Chris Christie needs to explain if he is responsible for creating an atmosphere within his administration that allows for behavior like Bridgate.

Didn't think it was my imagination. BIAS ya think?In the first 24 hours after the traffic scandal involving Chris Christie broke, the “major” networks gave it 17 times more coverage than they’ve given to Barack Obama’s IRS scandal over the last six months. ABC, CBS and NBC devoted 34 minutes and 28 seconds of coverage to “Bridgegate” in 24 hours – compared to two minutes and eight seconds to the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups in six months. Good Morning America‘s George Stephanopoulos pounced on the developing Christie story first thing Thursday morning, opening GMA by trumpeting: “Chris Christie in crisis. Calls at this hour for the feds to step in, investigate the explosive e-mails.” Stephie later hoped wondered: “One of the big questions right now; how much has it hampered his White House prospects?

PAGE 1 OF 2. Christie has shredded his bipartisan cred Jan. 9, 2014 7:42 PM | After being elected governor of New Jersey in 2009, presidential speculation about Chris Christie heated up very quickly. His defeat of an incumbent Democrat was big news. Christie’s victory reverberated dramatically because New Jersey is not a Swing State but genuinely “blue.” It endowed Christie with bipartisan credibility and held out the hope that this forceful and occasionally bumptious new governor would give the GOP a candidate with crossover appeal and a shot at something that seemed to be eluding their grasp — the White House. Gov. Christie bought into that narrative and its pursuit has now stalled his presidential quest as firmly as a traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge. Christie’s approach to governing has been based on a delicately calibrated strategy: enhance the bipartisan appeal without needlessly antagonizing the party’s right wing, which could make his path to the nomination very painful.

As the controversy over lane closures at the George Washington Bridge continues to swirl, Democrats in Washington are pouncing on Gov. Chris Christie in the hope that they can stop his potential quest for the White House before it begins
LOGIC LETTER 12/16 Good morning Americans! It's Monday! Here is the word from insiders. The 2016 Republican nominee will not be Chris Christie or Jeb Bush. It will be Paul Ryan. Why? Because Ryan understands that bipartisan compromises (such as the gosh-awful budget deal he just hammered out with Patty Murray) must be the new norm. So here we are for 2016: Conservatism is old and outmoded and so we need someone who understands that and is willing to essentially let the Democrats win. Now, folks, I understand that nutcases are in charge in the White House and in the Senate. But Republicans hold the House. (Er, I mean the U.S. House of Representatives -- not what used to be referred to as the End Zone.) The House is where spending bills originate. Republicans are not without power even if they are without spine. OK. Let's analyze. Here's what a refusal to compromise on this budget would have gotten us: Lots of negative media coverage. A continuation of the real spending cuts in the Sequester. ...

With Rand Paul unraveling with the Plagiarism charges and Ted Cruz still reeling from the Government Shutdown disaster that he orchestrated, the GOP's only real hope in November of 2016 won in a landslide in New Jersey tonight (a blue state). His name is Chris Christie. The Republicans will try to destroy him for embracing help from the White House in 2012 following the Hurricane Sandy disaster, but he was rewarded big tonight for that bipartisanship. If the Republicans don't move towards the middle (and become more Moderate), they will lose big in 2014 and 2016.
I've heard alot of talk about moderates won't do anything for the Republican Party to win the White House. Before you start making fat jokes, read what I have to say about Chris Christie. Republicans tend to be less likely to vote across the aisle. Democrats tend to occupy the area of the spectrum from independents to hardcore liberals. The Republicans, especially after the Tea Party came into town and made a name for itself, will retain a straight party vote. By my estimates, at least 90% percent of the Republican Party will vote for the Republican candidate, regardless of who he is or how strong. Christie has shown remarkable influence in independents and has crept into the Democratic side of the aisle, winning the admiration of minorities and liberals alike. Some liberals I've talked to have said they'd pick Christie over Clinton in 2016. He may not be the most conservative, but he's the most electable and he has a far better chance at the White House than McCain or Romney did. He practically turned Ne ...
A Topic Under The New “The Stupid Burns Please Make It Stop!” Dept — These asinine *** think they're winning! But there's no racism in the opposition to Obama ... nope ... none at all ... Tea Partiers bring Confederate Flags to the White House, where America’s first Black President lives. This was on display in front of the White House today sponsored by Palin and Cruz. The so-called nonpartisan ‘Million Vet March’ garnered support from key Republicans who strolled over from the Values Voter Summit — that’s the same summit that snubbed Chris Christie from attending and instead invited Rick Santorum and Allen West. So, let’s be clear: This is a Tea Party rally. And we’ve seen this before when old, white angry people descended on Washington D.C. just after America’s first black President was sworn in. Can you imagine being President Barack Obama and while glancing out of the window at the White House, you see a Confederate Flag? Notice the misspelling which was corrected later with ...
Interesting: Chris Christie 's wife works for Cantor Fitzgerald and Ted Cruz 's wife for Goldman Sachs . Both of them want the White House
Jonathan Alter: Obama's 'Deranged' Enemies Helped Him Win in 2012 Alter: GOP Attacks Helped Vault Obama in ’12 Veteran journalist Jonathan Alter, who has a new book focusing on the 2012 presidential race, says that Republican attacks on President Barack Obama backfired and hurt the GOP, but asserts that Obama's failure to reach across the aisle has hurt his agenda. And he predicts that both Gov. Chris Christie and Hillary Clinton will likely run for president in 2016. Alter also discloses details about a secret meeting in which leading conservatives, including Rush Limbaugh and Fox News chief Roger Ailes, tried to convince Christie to enter the 2012 race for the White House. Alter, a senior editor and columnist at Newsweek from 1983 to 2011, is now a Bloomberg View columnist and contributing correspondent at NBC News. His 2010 book, "The Promise: President Obama, Year One," was a New York Times best-seller, reaching No. 3 on the list. His new book is "The Center Holds: Obama and His Enemies." Alter’s ...
Vol.2, No. 157 The Rooney Report “All the News That Fits on One Page” Wednesday, June 5, 2013 National: In a White House shakeup UN Ambassador Susan Rice is replacing Tom Donilon as national security advisor. It’s bound to irritate Republicans who blocked Rice from becoming Secretary of State. ➢Organizers of several Tea Party and conservative groups testified before Congress yesterday that they were singled out for scrutiny by the IRS because of their political beliefs. They had applied for tax-exempt status under a law that limits political activities. Questioning from Republicans was sympathetic, but Illinois Democrat Jim McDermott said some of the groups were clearly supporting political causes and candidates. “We are talking about whether or not the American public will subsidize your work,” he said. ➢Gov. Chris Christie ordered a special election to fill the empty New Jersey senate seat rather than make an appointment that would anger one political party or the other. But Republicans ar ...
BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER. GOVERNOR CHRISTIE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A LOUD MOUTH UNION THUG WHO HAS SOLD HIS SOUL TO THE COMPANY STORE-- SO TO SPEAK. A PATHETIC RINO REPUBLICAN AT BEST. TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie is cashing in donations from top Democratic fundraisers and other traditionally liberal donors across the country, even nabbing the support of a handful of rainmakers aligned with President Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a Star-Ledger review of state and federal records shows. The checks are flying into the Republican Governor’s war chest from all sorts of unlikely places — the hedge fund run by liberal billionaire George Soros, for example, and the politically progressive halls of the University of California, Berkeley. The nascent support from Democratic donors is an early sign of Christie’s fundraising prowess in a potential run for the White House in 2016, experts and Democratic donors said, and dovetails with recent polls showing him gaining popularity nationally amo ...
BROKE-BACK BOARDWALK (I wonder who wrote this?) Love was in the air as NJ Governor Chris Christie won his new object of obsession, President Obama, a teddy bear while the lovebirds strolled along the boardwalk in NJ. With his administration mired in scandal, Obama is trying to play his greatest hits – revisiting all the places where he got a bump in the polls. But the media seems to be missing one of the biggest stories from the day, and only Glenn had it. And while many news outlets picked up on Chris Christie stepping in to win a stuffed teddy bear for President Obama, only Glenn and his special, investigative reporters picked up on what happened next. “TheBlaze is reporting this morning that afterwards, the two made a sand castle of the White House on the beach and then frolicked in the crashing waves, playfully and gently splashing wanter on one another for about an hour. Then after Chris Christie played a game of shirtless beach volleyball, just in jeans, while the President cheered him on, the t ...
Sen. James Inhofe: "I was not going to let the White House pull a Chris Christie on me"
President Barack Obama is expected to tour the Jersey Shore with Gov. Chris Christie on Tuesday, visiting families and businesses owners affected by superstorm Sandy, before his afternoon remarks, scheduled before 2 p.m. in Asbury Park, according to a White House press release.
Chris Christie slim down? Fat chance By Leonard Pitts Jr. lpittsit turns out Chris Christie is fat. If, somehow, that fact had escaped you before, surely it came slamming home last week after he appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman. There was the 50-year-old governor of New Jersey jokingly snacking on a doughnut as the talk show host — who has taken a jab or two at Christie’s weight — gently asked him about his girth. The bit was in keeping with how Christie usually deals with weight-related humor. He seems to feel the best defense is a good fat joke. The laughter curdled the following day, however, as Dr. Connie Mariano, a former White House physician, told CNN that Christie is a “time bomb” who, if elected, might die in office. Christie exploded, calling her “completely irresponsible,” and a “hack,” and told her to “shut up” about his health. After that, Christie reportedly spoke to her by phone and, presumably, told her what he really thinks about her. All of which has i ...
I love Whitney too, but lets be real. Chris Kyle was/is a hero. The whole flag lowering thing, well Rick Perry didn't for Kyle and Chris Christie did for Houston. Up to the govnas, I guess. However, the White House still needs to acknowledge Kyle's death (and his life spent sacrificing). Read his book and you'll see why.
My piece in today's Sunday Times: Hurricane heavyweight Chris Christie chews out Dr Diet Republican presidential hopeful has been branded a bully for his tirade against a White House medic, reports Toby Harnden in Washington CHRIS CHRISTIE, the governor of New Jersey and a presidential hopeful for 2016, telephoned a former White House doctor to harangue her for making public comments about his weight, “insulting” and “bullying” her, she alleged this weekend. Immediately after the call to Connie Mariano, a retired US navy rear-admiral who treated three presidents in the White House from 1992 to 2001, Christie held a press conference in which he called her a “hack” who should “shut up”. Mariano, 57, a Republican who believes Christie is at risk of dying in office if he is elected, said his “defiance and anger” were part of a “defence mechanism of denial and transference” so that he could assume the role of victim. “He was blunt and insulting and accusatory. I tried to be respectful ...
Chris Christie struggles with politics of his weight via POLITICO's Maggie Haberman After years of questions about his girth, Governor Chris Christie seemed to settle on a strategy — leave them laughing. The overweight New Jersey Governor took to Dave Letterman's couch, doughnut in hand, on Monday night, joining one of his chief late night tormenters for some jokes at his own expense. The calculation was clear — try to turn the potential negative into a positive, a strategy used by many a politician, including Al Gore during his 2000 presidential campaign. But Gore’s problematic trait was stiffness, not size. And by Wednesday, Christie had undercut his own strategy, saying a former White House doctor who expressed fears that his weight could be life-ending if he were president “should shut up” since she hasn’t examined him and doesn’t know his medical history. The Letterman appearance was the clearest sign yet that Christie is well aware that his girth presents a potential obstacle in 2016, ...

Feb. 6: MSNBC's Karen Finney & Richard Wolffe join Lawrence O'Donnell to discuss Fox News, facelifts, and why Gov. Chris Christie feels a former White House doctor should remain silent about his weight.
Everyone is talking about the blizzard heading toward the Northeast. Also, Gov. Chris Christie shot back at a former White House doctor who criticized his weight. All that, and all that matters, in today's "Eye Opener."
Herman Cain for president in 2016? And Vice President Marco Rubio? Dana Perino as White House press secretary. Chris Christie as secretary of defense. Bobby Jindal as secretary of state. Newt Gingrich as treasury secretary. And Charlie Crist as secretary of education. (I figure the intellectually elusive former Fla. governor could mangle the federal agency beyond repair.) And Mike Huckabee as something. I don't know yet. But we got to fit him in somewhere.
If the Republican Party wants to regain the White House in 2016, all they need to do is let the primaries become a debate between Chris Christie and Jon Huntsman. I feel certain that this would surface a candidate and a revived Republican Party that could defeat Hillary or Joe Biden or whoever else surfaces as the strongest Democratic candidate. Sadly, this is just me dreaming over morning coffee. The Republican Party prefers martyrdom over leadership.
Boehner Tells Harry Reid GO FCK YOURSELF Posted by Ed Brown on Jan 2, 2013 House Speaker John Boehner During the process of averting the Fiscal Farce, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took to the floor of the upper chamber and gave current House Speaker John Boehner a good verbal slapping around – characterizing Boehner’s leadership in the lower congressional chamber as a “dictatorship.” According to a Washington insider who witnessed the fallout of Reid’s pummeling of Boehner, Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, two of the key players in Monday mornings amended H.R. 8 Fiscal “Cliff” avoiding legislation, were later seated in the White House when IN stormed a red faced and somewhat towering – larger than life Johnny Boehner ready to put up his dukes and have it out with Reid, his elder, and a guy who by all apparent accounts, is pretty much shriveled up to nothing more than the sack a man once came in. The insider states that Boehner glanced at Reid and said the first thing t ...

With his state still reeling from superstorm Sandy, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie paid a visit to the White House today to ask the president for more hurricane relief. That’s right, President Obama, whom he toured his state with in the days following the storm, the two looking for all the world lik...
GHNS -- Four years ago, Republicans went into the wilderness. Having lost the White House and both houses of Congress, it was time for the Grand Old Party to think again about what it was and where it was going. Fairly quickly, they found the Tea Party movement, a new home for their anger and energy. But the Tea Party road turned out to be a dead end. It looked new at first, but was really the shrinking Republican Party – aging, white, religious conservatives – with a new set of slogans. Soon the Tea Party was hijacked by PACs and hacks like Tom Delay and Sarah Palin. Then Tea Party energy hijacked the presidential nomination process and things went downhill from there. The primaries were clown shows, producing a winner who couldn’t Etch-A-Sketch away the pandering he’d had to do to get the nomination. But as Republicans get past the stages of denial and anger, they are coming to see their problems as much deeper. Forget Mitt Romney, Hurricane Sandy and Chris Christie. Republicans lost Senate seat ...
A new Mitt Romney is emerging in the closing days of the campaign, aides say: a man who is increasingly “being Eaten Alive with jealousy” by President Obama’s budding relationship with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. While Mr. Romney has told reporters that he is “totally fine” with Gov. Christie flying around in a helicopter with President Obama, privately he has told aides, “Seeing him with Chris Christie is tearing me apart.” The trouble began earlier this week, a Romney aide said, when Mr. Romney saw Mr. Christie on CNN mention that President Obama “had given him his number at the White House.” “Mitt was like, ‘Fine, whatever, do we have to watch this?’ and then basically ran out of the room,” the aide said. “It was completely awkward.” Making matters worse, the aide said, “Chris Christie isn’t returning his calls.” “Mitt was trying to explain his position on FEMA to reporters yesterday and he got all excited because his phone started vibrating,” the aide said. ...
Wednesday night, Christie acknowledged the odd circumstances. Chris Christie talks about President Obama touring damage from Hurricane Sandy The president said the wants to make sure there is nothing we ask for as a state that we don't get Watch video "I’m aware of all the atmospherics," he said. "I’m not in a coma. But the fact is I don’t care. There will be some folks who will criticize me for complimenting him. Well you know, I speak the truth. That’s what I do. I say what I feel and what I believe. And I’m just doing the same thing with the president of the United States." Democrats and Republicans in the state welcomed the teamwork between the Statehouse and the White House, saying that providing relief to those left homeless, without power and surrounded by floodwaters as well as rebuilding the Shore would be any governor’s first priority. Tom Wilson, a former chairman of the state Republican Party, said Christie is "honest to a fault." "He’s just being honest and telling people, ‘Lo ...
In last week of campaign, Obama gets good luck and good news Ezra Klein / Washington Post 6:21 AM In campaigns, timing can be everything. And the Obama campaign has picked a good time -- the very last days of a close campaign -- for an extraordinary run of good news and good luck. In the good news bucket is the high marks President Obama received for his handling of the Sandy superstorm. According to the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, 79 percent of voters say the president has done a "good' or "excellent" job responding to the storm. Among those voters is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who made national news with his praise of the president. Further extending the White House's string of good headlines was the endorsement of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who said he was moved by Sandy to endorse the candidate with a better plan to address catastrophic climate change. That took one more day of headlines away from Mitt Romney, who had been laying low during the storm but was back on the campaign ...
This had to make republicans cringe... Chris Christie, keynote speaker at the Republican Convention, said the following about the president: Obama “has sprung into action immediately,” Christie said. “He has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. I think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend. It’s been a great working relationship.” “I cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state,” he added. “It’s been very good working with the President. He and his Administration have been coordinating with us. It’s been wonderful.” Speaking on CNN, Christie said that he had been mightily impressed by Obama’s accessibility throughout the crisis. “He gave me his number at the White House, told me to call him if I needed anything, and he absolutely means it.”
President Obama & Gov. Chris Christie talk as they fly over NJ coast today. (via White House's Pete Souza)
Warning: Political post ahead: Every once in a while I cycle through the AM radio stations to see what the talkers are spouting about. On our one Progressive station, Ed Schultz is talking about Hurricane Sandy and about how even Chris Christie, the Republican Governor of New Jersey, is praising President Obama for getting Federal aid and emergency services to the states quickly and efficiently. He has a sound bite on hand, yep, that's exactly what Chris Christie said. Then I go over to every other AM station, some five or six of them are right-wing nutjobs bleating about Benghazi, one guy was even telling people that the Muslim Brotherhood was being handed 1.2 Trillion dollars in federal aid from our government, and how dare they when they supposedly couldn't afford more security in Benghazi, this guy said that the White House refused to allow funding to increase security at the embassy (I know, right, jeez, the guy doesn't even know how our government works, it's Congress who provides funding, not the P ...
Barbra Streisand, apparently, was not amused. At least that's the way Gov. Chris Christie saw it when the singer, actress and Democratic supporter — 'one of your most famous Californians,' as Christie told the California delegation to the Republican National Convention Monday morning — was booted out of the governor’s seats during a White House event for Chinese dignitaries.
Bill Clinton is a key Obama supporter. I'm not saying thats a bad thing, actually a good thing but also, if Obama wins, Hillary has a smooth ride to the White House either against Chris Christie or Condolezza Rice! . It would be cool to see two women duke it out for the White House in four years!!!
I just heard that Romney is possibly choosing Chris Christie for his Vice President. Christie is currently the Governor of New Jersey and he's one of the Worst! He's closed down so many public schools and he could care less about the education of kids growing up in Urban Areas. I can't tell you who to vote for but, I've experienced Chris Christie first hand and I don't want him anywhere near the White House!
Romney is better than Obama, but I wish Mitch Daniels & Chris Christie would run. We need Reganomincs back in the White House.
Following up on an earlier item, President Obama spoke from the East Room of the White House this afternoon, making his case for extending a middle-class tax break. As was the case with Obama's moves on immigration and marriage equality, it's fair to say the president's proposal …

Morning after first impressions from White House Correspondents Dinner. It was surreal, often fun, and yes, sometimes creepy and uncomfortable. Hard to squeeze past Gov. Chris Christie in aisle without screaming. Or bumping into a feeble Rumsfeld on the steps without doing the same. Overhearing Spielberg and Leon Panetta discuss foreign policy. Clooney at next table, very friendly. Greta and kardashians and Lindsay Lohan -- who I just wanted to save -- at the other. Christine Baranski, what can I say? Amazing! And met a slew of others. Okay, much more for the show.
If Mitt Romney (My no.1 choice in the presidential race) is our nominee and is elected president, I'd like to see Ron Paul appointed as secretary of the treasury, with Herman Cain and Chris Christie, and Paul Ryan doing anything within a Romney administration. I don't want Santorum or Gingrich anywhere near the White House...
