If Chris Christie were an IPO, I would buy. He is the leading Presidential contender at this moment and probably will be for awhile. All the Tea Party candidates (Cruz, Rubio, Paul) are going: how does he do that? LOL
Is Christie very capable of political self-destruction? No doubt, given his tendency to real New Jersey bullying. But he is also charming and authentic, and he's not faking anything that I can tell. This is who he is. And America may just be ready for someone who is a pragmatic, no-nonsense head-cracker, who can also defy the conventional wisdom (like hugging the hated President Obama just before the 2012 election...LOL).
According to the NYT: "In a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans by over 700,000, Mr. Christie won a majority of the votes of women and Hispanics and made impressive inroads among younger voters and blacks — groups that Republicans nationally have struggled to attract."
Governor Christie--like him or not, agree with him or not on policy--has the look of a winner. (This is not an endorsement, just an observation!) And all the RINO talk being thrown around by the Tea Partiers is just spitting in the wind. Christie is the REAL THING, a Republican who can win.
