Chris Christie U-Turns And Accepts Obamacare

HEATBaller 3,466 294 February 28, 2013 at 05:33 AM
Make no mistake Your Choice for President in 2016 will boil down to this guys or Hillary. Sure Rubio will make a strong run so will John Thune or Hunstman or some other Republican Governor who has Tea Party creds like never having accepted Obamacare or reducing spending in his state and balanced the budget.

But Christie will be right up there. Heck he's even growing on me

But he sure is making alot of waves to cut ties and be his own man. Keep in mind the GOP will support who ever the nominee is. Its really the dismantling of the Republican party as a whole, its signaling that candidates have to scatter and make their own road.

Did you link to the wrong video? I saw nothing about Obamacare in the video.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.

Rubio has zero, ZERO chance of making it through a national campaign. There's a reason why Romney chose Ryan instead of Rubio even though Rubio was in EVERY MEASURABLE WAY a better veep candidate.

No chance. Ever. Period.

Just sayin.

Christie is exactly what the republican party needs. Not quacks like Palin, or aloof near-billionaries like Romney.
And because of this, he will be blackballed by the republican party.

I think A Christie/Rubio ticket would be very solid for 2016. He is young and eloquent, not unlike someone currently in office.

The tea partiers are really getting in a tizzy about this issue. How is expanding Medicaid health coverage to people at 138% of the poverty line ($23,050 for a family of four) a bad thing? I don't think that's a good reason to attack a Republican governor. On the other hand, this might actually be a good way to go for the party.

Did this just turn into submit your nominations time?

Paul Ryan - Most qualified of them all. He isn't afraid to say the truth even when it's unpopular and depicted as throwing grandma off the cliff.

I don't know Christie's record, but he seems to be a no BS sort of guy. Maybe a PR + CC combo. They can fight over P vs VP.

Rubio just seems off to me for some reason. I think it's just his body language.

Too much baggage and it's exactly the wrong kind of baggage.

Christie is a turncoat who sold out to 0bama in exchange for billions in Sandy aid. If elected to the presidency, he would be another GWB - a pseudo-conservative promoting big government.


And he has a man-crush on 0bama.

He doesn't come across to me as a religious-right neocon, but that's just me

No way Christie runs in 2016. Huckabee is the most likely candidate IMO. Hillary wins easily in 2016 and 2020. 2024 we should see another party come to fruition.

I'm not exactly sure what I just ordered, but I think I'm pretty pleased about it if it's what it might be, but then again, I have no idea exactly what it is... but that's the nature of slickdeals.
Thanks OP! I think.

Disagree. There is no way the GOP will appoint a pro-gun control candidate like Christie. Period.

No way. It's possible I guess, I just don't see it happening. Wouldn't it be bad for the first black president and the first women president to be the worst two presidents we ever had? I would think we would look for some higher quality options.
