    We know who Christie is and where is head is at and he’s not going to be elected President as a Republican. That ship sailed away from a beach in Jersey.

    Now we find out he’s another Megan McCain or David Brooks == Democrat Pet Republican.

    Thrash around some more fat boy. (he knows he’s screwed his cover so he’s coming out of the closet all the way. Look for him to change his party if he gets elected Gov again and he’ll say something like “I didn’t leave the party, the party left me.”)

    I was just thinking the same thing: Christie will leave the GOP.

    They say Christie gave a lackluster speech at the Republican Convention. Maybe he felt ill at ease amongst so many Republicans. I knew he was a RINO, but I never thought he’d fawn over O after Sandy. I’ve never seen two politicians walking arm and arm the way he and O were. Christie was playing both sides until he was pretty sure O was going to steal the election. That’s when he came out of the closet.

    Shut up, Christie.

    New Jersey? Let them eat governor.
