The Republican Establishment seems to now be tossing in ‘candidates’ like they would spaghetti noodles you throw on the fridge to see if they’ll stick. So just as we are with Rick Perry, Americans can find out for themselves just exactly how unpresidential, and not quite ready, Chris Christie is. After all, arrogant blowhard bullying only goes so far. I’ve been noting for quite some time, though, that everyone who can run should run so Americans can completely own the end result.
My one question is, who do they go to when Christie falls off the fridge? Carrot Top? Tom Selleck? Rin Tin Tin? The Ghost of John Wayne? John Wayne’s Hat?
So run, Chris Christie, run! But he’ll have to break at least one promise–that one to kill himself to prove he’s not running. I guess he can get started early with proving he’s just full of…hot air.
Alternative headline for the Newsmax story? “GOP Establishment Liberals Getting Desperate, Realize They’re In Serious Trouble.” Their only other hope? That Obama’s team removes the letter “P” from all the computer keyboards in the White House.
Newsmax has learned that the effort to draft Christie culminated in a hush-hush powwow held in the past week with Christie and several notable Republican billionaires.
A source familiar with the meeting suggested that Christie seemed inclined to enter the race but said he needed more time.
Christie promised to make a final decision “within two weeks,” the source said.
Another source involved in GOP fundraising tells Newsmax that that uncommitted fundraisers and donors have been receiving phone calls from top political aides to Christie, seeking their feedback about his possible entry into the race.
Earlier this week Christie hinted at the effort to draft him when he spoke at a special forum that included Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels
There is, however, and official denial from the Christie camp, delivered via Peter Hamby of CNN on Twitter:
A couple of reminders about the sort of person Chris Christie is. He refused to join the states’ lawsuit against ObamaCare, but accepted a waiver.
