Skip to comments.Chris Christie is playing with fire

Chris Christie is immensely popular and is a huge favorite for reelection in New Jersey this year, with voters from across the political spectrum giving him the thumbs up.
When it comes to the national conservative base, though, the governor is at risk of earning a different one-finger salute.
Christie is already on probation with some conservatives for his praise of President Obamas work on Hurricane Sandy in the closing days of the 2012 election something a few critics have even suggested put the president over the top.
Now the potential 2016 presidential contender has lashed out at the National Rifle Association, calling a new ad from the group reprehensible for using Obamas daughters to make a political point.
To talk about the presidents children or any public officers children who have not by their own choice, but by requirement to have protection and to use that somehow to try to make a political point, I think, is reprehensible, Christie said. He added: I think its awful to bring public figures children into the political debate. They dont deserve to be there. And for any of us who are public figures, you see that ad and you cringe. You cringe because its just not appropriate to do that, in my opinion.

Within the Republican Party, there are certain groups you just dont mess with if you want to win primaries, and the NRA is one of them. As were seeing in the current gun debate, even many Democrats dont mess with the NRA...

The Huntsville area is very nice.
Christie isn’t playing with fire at all.
He’s done. A crispie critter grilled up by his own hand.
That it is although a bit too liberal for me with the university and the number of northerners who fail to embrace Alabama values. Actually, my North Alabama preference would be Cullman, a with a high percentage of Christians and Conservatives. I also recall that nearly everyone there was a gun owner. And, to top it off, the proportion of urban thug types is pretty low in Cullman.
I'm with ya'. Christie can kiss my butt!
Unintentional word choices, no doubt. I don't care for the demonrat governor from NJ, but I do find the somewhat subtle "journalism" interesting.
No you just had a brush with the crazies of the coastal lunatic fringe.
Would not surprise me in the least to see the Democrat presidential contenders in 2016 be Christie, Bloomberg, and Cuomo...and Hillary out of the running.
Would also expect the eventual Dem nominee to pick the first minority openly gay/lesbian running mate too...again, Hillary out of the running.
Then came the mushy effusive big hug for the fantastic visit of Obama [A President who visits a disaster area! How astonishing! Whoever HEARD of such a thing?]
I am in NC now but still own a place about 20 min south of Huntsville. Never really ran into many liberals there my self but don’t go looking for them either
The leftists in Huntsville are near UAH, of course, and along highway 20 where a lot of the Yankees flocked to for the high tech jobs. One place where they weren't back in my day was at Greenbrier Bar-B-Que. It seems that commies just hate good Southern cooking!
I don't think that you want to go farther south than Birmingham. The northern part of the state is, of course, a little cooler than the southern part. Both are subject to the South's heat and bad humidity in the summer (hell, it's hot most everywhere in North America in the summer), but you will find that the winters are mild, really mild, in comparison to, say New York, and the springs and autumns are downright beautiful.
As a bonus, spring comes early in Alabama, in March, while the rest of the non-Dixie states shiver!
P.S., I agree with you concerning Mobile. It's hot and humid there much longer than the rest of the state.
If Christie is playing with fire, he better not get burned, as he would burn like a can of Sterno for three years, minimum.
“...people seem to think only of Texas when thinking relocation...”
I’ve got 30+ years exp. in defense/aerospace industry (Logistics Anaylst/Process Engineer/Tech. Writer/Mechanic) - I could find a job in either state in an hour.
I’ve also got a wife and a special-needs daughter to go along with an under-water mortgage - “thank you to all our friends of BHO”....
John McCain, Episode III.
Christie should stick with feeding his face it is the only thing he does well. He is a slob and will never be president....never.
The only people who say “joizy” are transplants from Bensonhurst from 40 years ago. Most North Jerseyites talk like Anthony Bourdain, while South Jersyites talk like Patti Smith.
Quite right. I have friends in New Jersey—or at least I did until taxes drove them out—but I’m not from there myself. QED.
How about Long Gisland?
He showed what a Whore he is... how can we support him now?
Christie is the poster boy for the “new”, “ more inclusive”, more tolerant”, modernized Republican Party. Wait and see.
