I Love This Guy...

...and I say this wiht an unblemished record of staunch heterosexuality (Seinfeld)

Chris Christie Calls Out Democrats and Republicans on Fiscal Issues

"Let me suggest to you that what game is being played down here is irresponsible and it is dangerous. We need to say these things and we need to say them out loud. ”

“When we say we’re cutting spending, when we say everything’s on the table, when we say we mean entitlement programs, we should be specific.”

“Here’s the truth that nobody’s talking about. You're gonna have to raise the retirement age for social security,” he said. “Whoa, I just said it, and I'm still standing here. I did not vaporize.”

“These problems and issues are not partisan. They are obvious. And they are long overdue to be solved. And that’s why you see Andrew Cuomo, or for god’s sake, even Jerry Brown in California, talking about reducing the salaries of state workers by 8-to-10 percent.”

“Some people say I'm too combative, some people say I'm too much of a fighter. Well, I'll tell you, I'm fighting now because now is the time that matters most in New Jersey's and America's future and we are teetering on the edge of disaster.”

In a debate, without teleprompters...this guy would wipe the floor with Obama.

We haven't seen the likes of somebody like this since Taft...

Race - you need to change CC's mind on running for president. He doesn't listen to me.

He's young, and says 'not yet.' Normally (and so far) I say let him fix Jersey...but I fear it may will take this persona to beat The Great Teleprompter Reader.

He has a great mind, wit, and appetite. He goes into the belly of the beast (congress, union meetings, etc.) and speaks truth to power.

It would be refreshing to vote for someone who wasn't obsessed with becoming president for the power and fame.
