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.

Chris Christie Reconsidering 2012 Run, Will Decide in Days

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.

And from Gary Jackson, coverage from January about New Jersey Governor Christie’s Dirty Ties To Hamas-linked Islamic Supremacists

    Jerk and the Fat Man. “Say, is that a Mexican restaurant over there?”

  2. Artgal says:

    Finally – there may be a candidate who is presidential enough for Ann Coulter to support…

  3. jeaneeinabottle says:

    The picture of Christie on Drudge didn’t even look like him, is he trying to disguise himself with fat? Good Lord he is killing himself slowly right in front of us.

  4. rjc115 says:

    Chris Christie is nothing but a big TEASE!!!!!!

  5. dennisl59 says:

    Christie’s phony schtick won’t work beyond the borders of ‘Jersey…

  6. Chuck says:

    Runs faster than the speed of light! … oh, wait, wrong topic.

    The flavor of the month: Perry in trouble, now we need the establishment candidate. If he gets in, he will take Mittenzzzzz voters with him.

    Caption for the picture above: Laurel & Hardy.

    Notice the GOP establishment begs every middle-aged-white-guy-governor to be in the race: Romney, Perry, Christie, Daniels, Jebbie…but leaves out the only one who happens to have actually ACCOMPLISHED something significant for the conservative movement – Scott Walker of Wisconsin. Strange, eh? Or not.

    • sandyl says:

      Good Point! Though Scott Walker did disappoint me with his endorsement of Perry.

      • mytorpor says:

        He had to endorse Perry…he still thinks he is going to need the financial support of the establishment GOP for his recall election the first of 2012. If he doesn’t switch to Palin when Perry falls to the wayside and she is actually on the ballot…THEN I will be more than disappointed in him, I will not send him a donation!

  8. flaggman says:

    p.s. Tammy, I love the categories you used for this posting – “Just Plain Stupid” and “liberal idiocy”. Have you no respect for the Grand Old Party?

  9. sandyl says:

    Well I know Christie won’t stick to the frig (cuz can’t be pulled out of the frig), so I’m just sitting on pins and needles waiting for Jindahl to get into the race. Now that will be excitzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  10. jimmer says:

    Tammy, do you think it is wise to tell such a ‘big boned’ individual to run? I’m thinking he should start out with brisk walks. No? (Yes I went there.)Sorry if I offended anyone but he is just a bully. Giving him a little ‘bully love’. 😉

  11. greenlantern2011 says:

    Seriously, as a healthcare professional, all I see when I look at this guy is MAJOR MEDICAL EVENT. Take care of yourself, Chris! Stay out of high stress presidential politics!

  12. aardvark says:

    Gee…and we just DID a caption contest…

  13. srrchl says:

    The old fart GOP machine continues to be exposed with its pants way down. Not only are the machine boys corrupt, but man are they dumb! How stupid do they think we are? After their 19th nervous breakdown due to growing rejection of Perry — did they really think no one would notice Perry’s no border, subsidized tuition for illegals, cronyism up the wazoo record? — they, again, plead with machine shill Chris Christie to run. Pahleez, Chris, we are running out of Depends — what will become of us if the tea party prevails? We can’t control them; our ass will be grass. Pahleeeeezzz-we really think your yelling at teachers schtick will be more appealing than what principled conservative, not 4 sale, consistent in word and action Palin has to offer. Just keep yelling at teachers and tell NY residents to get the hell off the beach and no one will notice that you favor gun control, amnesty, the green agenda, appointed an Islamist to the NJ bench, campaigned for Mike Castle, and were MIA on health care litigation. Just keep yelling…. (Dumb asses)

  14. Ginger says:

    Wow, I’m really beginning to see the wisdom of Palin’s waiting.

    Christie looks like a heart attack about to happen. If he can’t control his weight, how is he supposed to control the White House? It wouldn’t hurt me to lose a few pounds either, but this guy is over the top. His weight problem seems to be more emotional or ARROGANT. All that fat makes him look selfish and weak.

  15. GiMiller says:

    What does Ann Coulter see in him?? A mystery to me.

  16. BostonBruin says:

    This appears to be a last ditch effort by the GOP to throw a monkey wrench into Gov. Palin’s announcement plans. Anything they can do to delay her announcement a week or two would give them more time to hammer us with “she’s not running”, keep the big donors on the sidelines and minimize the time her staff has to get her campaign going.

    I expect Christie to endorse Romney.

  17. 1ntbtn says:

    Geee I’m afraid this is one strand of spaghetti you would have a very difficult time lifting, let alone tossing.

  18. HiramHawk says:

    Americans will not buy into crony-capitalist Perry, so the GOP to trots out another crony-capitalist. Christie will be light-work for Mittens…

  19. dwbinder says:

    God help us.

    @srrchl: Thanks, I haven’t thought of that song in years! Good choice.

    “When you were a child you were treated kind,
    But you were never brought up right,
    You were always spoiled with a thousand toys,
    But still you cried all night.
    Here comes your 19th nervous breakdown!”

    Run Christie Run!!!!

    I want to Learn more about his Muslim connections and Why Citizens of his State are Discouraged from exercising their Right under the 2nd Amendment (A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.)

    Run Christie Run!!!!

    Not ALL Liberals give one wit about Unions, and yet they are Still Liberals, Gov Christie are you a Liberal?

    Run Christie Run!!!!

    I want to See what’s been swept “Under the Rug”, what’s in his “Closet”. He might Not be Reelected once the NJ Voters find out who he is.

    Run Christie Run!!!!

    So that We can See the Difference between You and Barack (Barry) Hussein Obama?

    Run Christie Run!!!!

    I want to see Ann Coulter hug him. Can that be the next picture on Ann’s Book Cover?

    Run Christie Run!!!!

    I want to see Governor Christie go Head-to-Head with Governor Palin. Christie might Bit her Ear, but Palin will Knock him Out in the 3rd Round.

    Soooooooo……Run Christie Run!!!!

  22. larrygeary says:

    I don’t think Christie could stay on his feet for the entire length of a debate, given his weight, and under the hot TV lights he’s be sweating like a pig. He would not prove to be an attractive candidate even if he didn’t have all that liberal baggage.

  23. San says:

    I saw Ann Coulter on a news program and she was asked of Christie’s policy on immigration. She answered that she didn’t know. No further questions where asked of her on the subject. How can you support someone, without knowing how the person stands on the important issues. She is blindly following this big hunka, hunka.

    • greenlantern2011 says:

      Very cute avatar, San!
      Yes, WTH, Ann! Makes me think the DC establishment is all “anyone but Palin!” and blindly pushing any warm body with a pulse in front of her. I’m used to hearing better thought-out positions from Ann. Well, now we know the name of their game.

  24. Christie appears to be projecting his own sense of self loathing every time he comes out with sarcastic statements and at times is just plane rude. I guess he got teased a lot growing up, and has learned how to deal with people by choosing to be preemptively mean, and drawing peoples attention to their own perceived stupidity so others will not see his short comings. (no wonder Ann loves him so much) Once he laughed at the what do you think of Palin question, I learned all I needed to know about what makes that man tick. Needless to say, I was not impressed. A jerk like that is well suited to dealing with the unions as he speaks their same dialect. However, it takes much more well rounded, and whole person to be a great president. (Ha! I knew if I wrote long enough a size joke would innocently roll out of me:) Palin is much more well rounded. snicker snicker…

  25. […] Run, Chris Christie, Run! « Tammy Bruce 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. […]

  26. RobbieK says:

    If I voted for Christie, I’d be voting for his wife, not him! I can’t take someone seriously that is shaped like a barrel and is obviously not trying to lose weight. Also, ask Chris Christie his views of the 2nd Amendment and he states “I think our gun laws here in New Jersey work pretty well”. Do I hear a GONG? New Jersey has the most restrictive gun laws on the books. You have to “get permission” from law enforcement to purchase a firearm in New Jersey and have to “get more permission” to even carry it for protection in your car. Christie needs to go away.

  27. dr4ensic says:

    You guys don’t see the silver lining here. If Christie runs then that eliminates the argument that Palin is a quitter and didn’t finish her term as Gov. of Alaska doesn’t it? This could be the gift that keeps on giving once her campaign is in high gear and she’s debating the ‘boys’.

    As to Coulter..she likes a ‘side of beef’ obviously…(sorry…you guys opened the door.

  28. jmucciola says:

    He better start off with a slow jog…work his way up to a run.

  29. FrankRemley says:

    As much as I would like to see a fat, ugly guy like myself in the White House nobody who supports amnesty, gun control, and the Victory Mosque will ever get my vote.

  30. ecu22331963 says:

    Frank, you are singing to the choir, “Bring It On”.

  31. brandonj says:

    Oh my. I’ve never seen a photo of the governor like that one-I had no idea he was that big. My guess is he ain’t gonna be “running” anywhere.

  32. Joel267 says:

    We don’t like guys like him sitting next to us on an airplane, why would we want one in the White House? Just sayin…
