be careful, Christie said he was willing to have a conversation.  Did not say he was willing to sponsor legislation or that he thought it was a great idea, etc, but what he was really saying is that you can't have a conversation just about guns, have to also include mental health, violent culture, etc.  The republican presidential candidates cannot let themselves be boxed in like they have in the past, IMO.  IE, Romney went too far to the right in the primary and could not come back to the middle in the general.
True, he didn't come out and say he was willing to sponsor legislation, but the context of the quoted piece indicates to me that he's not opposed to restrictions of some sort - if not an outright ban.  In addition, his track record on Second Amendment issues ain't the greatest.  Quite frankly, if he's the Republican nominee in 2016, I'll be voting for a different candidate - probably Libertarian.

I don't think Christie will make it through and I think he has is a little bit of a loud mouth.  I would be hard pressed to vote for him as president, gov or state level is different.

Do you honestly think Christie will be around in 4 years?  Let's be real for a min,  I do not want to talk badly about his physical appearance, but since he was elected Gov. he looks as if he has put on another 50#.  His ticker has to be working over time with all the stress and his weight problem.  I seriously would be concerned  about him making a 4 year term unless he gets a bit healthier.

Although He could be a good Dead Pool contestant.  :devilsmiley:

he could prolly eek out a 4 year term.  The good thing is the pension cost for the rest of his life might not be too much, no Secret Service detail, etc... Just sayin..We need to pick come guys in their 60's and up so we don't have to pay so much for them to make millions on the book and lecture tour.  How about this, no pension after president unless you are not able to earn an income... Just saying, why do those guys get a pension when they make millions. Don't seem right.

boy, lots of fat discrimination going on here.  That guy could just as easily outlive all of us.   We should be more worried about a dumba$$, than a fata$$.  Christie seems strong to me......but yeah he will be slammed wholeheartidly by the left as their hypocrisy shines again on blind eyes....

This is all you need to know about fat boy Christie.

Quote
You reap what you sow. Chris Christie sucked up to Dear Leader during Hurricane Sandy, then bashed House Speaker John Boehner, and now the Democrats are swooning over the big guy.

Republican Gov. Chris Christie is more popular with Democrats nationally than with members of his own party,according to a poll released today.

The poll, by the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling, found 51 percent of all respondents view Christie favorably while 23 percent see him unfavorably.

Among Democrats, 52 percent have a favorable impression of Christie while 23 percent have an unfavorable one. Among Republicans, 48 percent have favorable view and 27 percent have an unfavorable view. From last month, Christies standing among Democrats has improved by 12 points, while his standing among Republicans has declined by 11 points, according to pollster Tom Jensen.

Is there an acronym for Democrat in all but name only? Because if Chris Christie is supposed to be some kind of standard-bearer for the GOP, well, the GOP is doomed.

 :floor: maybe Palin or Romney will be his VP - then they can get into the WH the way Biden did - maybe further if the dude blows his ticker or coughs a plaque  ball into his brain

I'm telling you, we need a movie star or rock star. That would get some of the dumb people votes. God only knows, there are a lot of dumb people out there.  :wacko:

he will get slammed by the hard right for being far to moderate.  the left of course will demonize any republican, but christie can't survive a republican primary 'cuz he's not "conservative enough"
