Will this be fat ass Chris Christie's inauguration day in 2016?

I'm thinking if he does run he'll get surgery, and won't be so fat.

Still, the thought is a bit depressing.

"Still, the thought is a bit depressing."

Spoken like thousands of cushioned high-back chairs, fearful of being pressed into service in Chris Christie's oval office.

I was reading Hillary's lips when she was speaking to Chief Justice Roberts, and it looked like she said "See you four years from today!"

He's much too harsh and obnoxious for middle Americans. He'd never get votes beyond the East Coast. Hardball politics and snarky attitude play well in New Jersey and Rhode Island, but not in the Midwest.

I know more than a few people of all different demographics who say that can't vote for him just because he's so FAT!

He physically couldn't handle a presidential campaign.

R4 is correct. He's fine for East Coast politics, but he wouldn't go over well in the rest of the country. I do hope the Republicans run him as he'd be such an easy target for scorn and parody. Imagine the field day SNL would have with Christie!

His morbid obesity, boorish, obnoxious personality and coarse blue-collar way of speaking are major turn-offs. He would never get elected.

He'd never get votes passed NJ, nevermind the midwest.

He's the embodiment of NJ and the obnoxious people who live there.

Freepers HATE him. He said nice things about Obama, so he is toast.

If he's going to win, they better cooking for the inaugurational trough now.

President Taft's old bathtub would have to be taken out of storage.

He will bill himself as a Republican who can get Democrats to vote for him, given how he pragmatically and politically taken centrist views on some issues and said nice things about Obama. He will argue that the far right politics are outmoded and he's better than Romney was.

And he'll lose in the primary to me, because I will call Hillary a feminazi socialist fascist gay abortion loving dictator! And the base will love me and not him!

Who are you kidding?

He epitomizes the Midwest.

by Anonymousreply 1601/21/2013

Yeah, he'll get Ohio and Illinois.

I know what you're saying R15. The Republicans tried "anybody except Romney" and ultimately decided he'd be the only Republican who could compete with Obama beyond a very narrow base. Now that the demographics have clearly shifted in the electorate (and hopefully the coalitions hold), I'm hoping these extreme zealots like Santorum fail again in 2016...or get the Republican nomination and then stumble badly in a general election.

2016 could be a repeat of 2012 and 2008. Remember that both Romney and McCain were chosen because they were the "moderate," "electable" candidates in a field of mostly wingnuts. Remember that when Romney was governor of Massachusetts, he favored abortion rights and said he would be a stronger advocate for gays than Ted Kennedy. But pressure from the GOP base and the other candidates forced both McCain and Romney to veer to the right and to pick wingnut running mates.

I see the same thing happening with Christie. He may spend the next couple of years positioning himself as a "moderate," "electable" candidate, but by 2015 he'll start veering to the right. The GOP base may very well hold their noses and nominate him, but they'll force him to ditch his more moderate views and pick a wingnut running mate. Christie won't be happy about it, and the awkwardness will show. And, unless the Democrats fuck up, it will be 2008 and 2012 all over again.

The GOP base, who are the only people who will pick the candidate, will be foaming at the mouth with even more Obama hatred by 2016. They will be howling like wolves at any repub has anything "moderate" to say. The money people will have a very difficult time convincing the mouth breathers to elect someone moderate. The freepers will be screaming back that they tried that the last two elections and lost. It will be time for someone who the whole country can elect like Michelle Bachmann!
