More than a few of us, while being thrilled to death that Paul Ryan is giving the response to the State of the Union, was hoping for it to be Chris Christie. More shocking than it not being him was the fact that it was offered to him and he turned it down. This, after turning down CPAC this year. What the hell dude?
The discussion on the blogs and the Twitters is all aboot why he wouldn’t want to do this, and yes, does this make him a “RINO.” Personally speaking, maybe he just doesn’t want the national spotlight? Anytime he gives an interview, it turns into seeing how many different ways he can be asked if he’s running for President.
Plus, you saw what happened with Sarah Palin when it was too much, too soon for her. It had started to happen to Christie. There was a national outrage because he went to Disneyworld while it snowed in New Jersey. The streets were plowed, but for two weeks all you heard was how the “rising star in the Republican party” was under fire, and how the “rising star of the Republican party” dropped the ball, and what does this mean for the “rising star of the Republican party” rising star of the Republican Party.
We love Chris Christie because he’s bringing fiscal conservatism to a deep blue state like New Jersey. We love Chris Christie because he’s blunt and cuts right to the point. We love Chris Christie because he’s showing the conservative policy can work in the Northeast.
How aboot we let him do his current job as Governor and turn some of those policies and rhetoric into results?
