    No kidding. I think the same thing happened to Rick Perry. He was pressured by so many to jump into this race--he did it. As we see he looks like a deer in the headlights on many issues--and is just not PRIME TIME ready to run for POTUS.

    Christie recognizes that and is smart enough to stay out of the fray.

    Anyone on the Republican side with serious aspirations is thinking 2016 at this point... As if the joke of a lineup they've got isn't proof... :rolleyes:

    So happy to hear that Christie is not running, he reminds of George Wallace back in the day. We definitely don't need another one like him. At least Christie is honest in stating that he don't feel he well versed enough on the issues that will confront the duties and responsibilities of a President. It is a HUGE responsibility, and I comment President Obama for keeping his head (and his guard) up and persevering amidst all the opposition he is receiving as he attempts to get matters done. He must be growing weary of all the in-fighting that is going on between the Senate and the House. :talktothehand:

    And you have to wonder how that's making Perry feel reading that. :redface:

    I can see now that there may be some bad blood between them in the 2016 GOP primaary once Obama finishes up his 2nd term.

    Because it's extremely unlikely that America is going to vote Obama back into office with his Abysmal performance thus far.

    The man can't lead a group of hobos out of a paper bag let alone this nation.

    According to who? You? :lol: He had the most successful legislative accomplishments of any President in over a generation in his first two years. He inherited a lousy economy, only surpassed in magnitude by the Great Depression. Your blaming the firefighter for not putting out the fire in the manner and speed that you want :rolleyes:

    Question: How long did it take to get out of the Great Depression? After you answer that you'll get an idea of how long it will take to get out of the current, WORLDWIDE recession given that it is only surpassed in magnitude by the aforementioned.
