- I'll Vote For Him But...
I can't imagine a bit of political theater that would be more fun than a Chris Christie - Barak Obama debate. The combination of Christie's straight talk and Obama's thin skin would be sure to raise many hysterical moments. There is even a "meaningful probability" that Christie will make him cry - and what could be more fun than that?
If Christie were to run, of course I'd vote for him in the general election. There is nothing in heaven or earth that would compel me to reelect anyone as wrong headed about how the world works as Barak Obama. No threat, no promise - nothing.
With all that said, I am not a Christie supporter for president. He's a blue state governor who combines the weaknesses of several other candidates. He's profoundly (and unapologetically) anti-gun, he's pro illegal immigration, and is on the liberal side of all kinds of "social" issues. He's been tough on the unions, but I think that's really because he's had no choice.
Give me anyone else in the field.
