    I'm not surprised, but I am disappointed.

    No surprise there.

    He's said from the getgo that he wasn't running. He's busy in NJ and he doesn't have the experience.

    Wonder if 2016 will be a differenct story??

    He sort of painted himself into a corner here.

    ten years from now he will have more of a record

    2020 at the earliest.

    We will likely have a republican in 2012...and seeing as that person will likely put this country back in the right direction, it is doubtful a GOPer will run against him/her in 2016.

    And by 2020?

    Christie will have the experience...and sadly...likely some extra baggage as well.

    N.J. Gov. Chris Christie has scheduled a 1 p.m. ET news conference where he's expected to discuss his plans for the 2012 presidential campaign.

    Shame on the media for once again pretending that someone was a serious candidate.

    Why would any intelligent person seek the Republican nomination and hope to win? Presidents usually govern from the middle, today's Republican Party has moved so far to the right a newly elected Republican President would battle not only liberal Democrats, but the radicals of the New Right which dominate the Republican Party today.

    The best our nation can hope for is for the American voter to rebuke radicalism and remake Congress into reflective body where reason trumps emotion, where wedge issues are replaced with fair and balanced legislation honestly debated, and pols first priority is our Republic and it citizens.
