    I like pols who can actually drive the bus instead of bullshitting about being able to drive the bus. The last guy who drove well was Clinton ( balanced budget. no wars, general prosperity) <personal issues aside>.

    Does Christie, who looks like he is actually fixing the NJ fiscal mess by taking a baseball bat to the troublemakers, have a shot at fixing the Federal mess in 2012?

    I don't see any problem with Christie, we'll see how he looks after 2011.

    No. He can't win if he doesn't run and he won't.

    I voted Yes on the poll question but he can't win in 2012. One big reason...He's too BIG. He's simply too fat. Americans are very shallow & dumbed-down people for the most part. His physical appearance alone eliminates any chances of him winning. If he sheds some pounds by 2012,he may have a slight chance. I really do respect the man and what he's trying to do in New Jersey though. The Democrats thoroughly destroyed New Jersey. He's doing his best to bring New Jersey back. He would get my vote if he decided to run. But Americans really are very shallow people for the most part and physical appearance matters very much to the Dimwits. It is sad but it is what it is.

    New Jersey's mess has more to do with the people that have been running New Jersey all these years than it does with the Federal government.

    I suspect it was a mistake not to build that tunnel, actually.

    that's precisely the kind of infrastructure projects that we ought to be funding.

    Plus it would make the commute so many garden staters make into Manhattan easier, too.
