Chris Christie may be interested in running with Romney, but that apparently isn't going happen. He's not bigoted enough against Muslims to make the cut.

The Republican Politburo (i.e., Karl Rove, David Koch, and the rest of the boyz who make the decisions) have decided that Christie has an "Islam problem," and on Monday used their main sewer pipe, the National Review Online, to announce it.

Christie, according to the NRO hit piece, "has sided with Islamist forces against those who worry about safeguarding American security and civilization." That's another way of saying he doesn't exhibit the necessary irrational fear and hatred of Muslims to qualify as a "real conservative."

Too bad for Romney, since the big guy is a talented and creative speaker who avoids bureaucratese, uses direct, plain English with good effect (when he manages not to lapse into misogyny), and would have brought a little life and spark into the foundering Republican campaign.

I don't actually know what motivated this take-down. Possibly, there was nervousness in the Romney camp over having a VP candidate who speaks with force and verve, which might underscore Willard's awkwardness and deficiencies as a public speaker.

One moderate, Northeastern republican on a ticket is sufficient.


If Romney were to pick Christie, it would hand the election to obama.

C C is not moderate in any way shape or form. He is also not going to run for V.P.  Frankly, he can not stand up to close scrutiny.

The first two statements may be true.



I think the third one is a horse puck.

That which does not kill me, will try again and get nastier.

I take it you are not from New Jersey then and are unaware of his close association with a number of somewhat less than totally honest and upright party bosses (from both parties) and of his performance in his current job and in previous positions.
