    He sounds kind of liberal to me, Toro. That's not saying too much though. I have a hard time picking out any conservatives among the Republicans.

    The last Republican president's proudest achievement was the "No Child Left Behind" act. He championed illegal aliens, spent like a drunken sailor, and stoked the economic meltdown by insisting that minorities all have mortgages they couldn't handle.

    What, exactly, is "too liberal for the GOP"? Forced sterilization for all males? Concentration camps for Christians? Mandatory gay sex?

    His position would have to be a combination of fiscal responsibility, combined with strict federalism, taking the position that if a state legislature wants to enact social or even economic change, it is free to do so as long as it does not abridge the US consitution and its own constituion. A strong position on this would at least temper the social conservatives to the view that he would at least not try to go against thier posistions.

    He is perfect for Jersey... just not POTUS.

    Seems like a great guy to me. He doesnt take himself too seriously.

    It's all about the rhetoric, not about real action.

    If anyone had merely scratched the surface, they would have found out that Bush was not so conservative, but they went along anyway as the less evil of plausible choices, a tactic that keeps kicking conservatives in the nads every time.

    Christie wont last and he will only steal votes from Romney. If conservatives can settle onone guy they would rule but the activists want someone totally ideologically pure on their special issue. So now some wont consider Perry because of the instate tuition for the children of illegals, and the gardasil bullshit which was not forced on anyone.

    Christie and Cain will have their turns at getting a political colonoscopy soon too.

    This will sink him with the GOP base.

    But it was Christie's finest moment. Changed my mind about this dude after this. :clap:

    I may not agree with him..but he isn't a complete loon.
