    Any chance of him entering the fray? Can he win?

    I think he will probably run, and may very well win.

    I hope the fat ass stays in New Jersey. There are already plenty of RINOS in the race. His pro-global warming beliefs are ridiculous. Maybe Christie and Gore sneak off together on midnight trips to Burger King?

    I don't think he's in the same league as Gore, but he does believe in man made global warming....i'm not a scientist, and to be honest, I'm not an expert, but I'm skeptical that while it may exist, many politicians aren't handling it properly, more so they are using it as a power grab, which is why i'm against any global warming legislation, until further evidence.

    I believe Christie feels under-qualified on the foreign front...

    On the other hand, Obama's proven way under-qualified on all fronts...(except blow-hardery)

    If voters vote America first...it's Christie in a landslide...

    I suggest he stay and finish TCB in New Jersey.

    He's not going to run, but if he did, he'd be called a RINO all day long on these boards.

    Christie has been good on some things. He has a mixed record in other things.

    And (pssst) he's fat.

    He has also said that he's not running.

    He loses a boatload of cred, therefore, if he now does run.

    And if he runs, the smear campaign they ran against him when he was running for Governor will seem like picnic in comparison to what he's going to be subjected to. He does have some warts to worry about.

    He should stick to his guns and try to help straighten out New Jersey.

    He's not my first choice, but he has done a nice job as governor.....

    I know he's fat, but he could conceivably overcome that weakness, because Obama is the worst incumbent since Carter, and it appears the base likes him more than anyone in the field now.

    I like Perry, but the conservative establishment is moving away from him...I love Cain, but he's viewed as too risky....

    Romney is the safe bet, and personally I'd rather have Christie.

    Christie has unfinished business to conduct. He isn't running. I won't vote for Romney...he has Liberal baggage, and I cannot vote for Perry...he's stepped on himself too many times.

    Romney and Perry are NOT the front runners by anyone's real choice...but by Media/Repubican elite manipulation. The choice of Cain in Florida sent a clear message to both the Repubicans and the Media...the people are in charge this time. WE refuse to have another McCain debacle.
