I know people do some weird things to themselves, piercing a tongue for example, but suspending yourself for three days? It seems too much even for harden souls who visit this site. On Christie, I don't see anybody else who stands even close. The man speaks English, with all due respect Bush could not talk. Secondly, he is from NJ, and you have to act and think fast, can't bear southern vacationers and thirdly, he is smart, he is a self made, no wealthy daddy, no silver spoon at the time of birth.

New Jersey is corrupt as a whole. There was so much corruption forever in the state of NJ, a few years ago the State Police was commanded to put together an elite team of 20 year plus detectives that only went after Police Officers of Sergeant and above, Politicians and other Public Officials. I have some information about this and it is sickening. An immediate family member was one of the highest ranking detectives in the state. He tried to retire when he had his 20 in about 8 years ago. They would not accept his resignation and convinced him to head up that new special unit for corruption. Last year he finally retired and it is a sad state of affairs.

Go back to the mayor of Camden, New Jersey with the ABSACM deal and the FBI back when AC was first starting. We are doing AC for the people and to put them and my constituents to work, it's good for the community. Puke on that one. Enough said. All NJ does is shift money around to whomever pays the other off the greatest amount.

Another thing many seem to forget about, when that numb nut became Colonel of the NJSP in a class of one, that mutt (which would be an insult to mixed breed dogs) from Newark and then the investigation and all that followed. LOL, he couldn't even wear the uniform or have a badge, nice move-whom paid off whom in that one? You know what I am talking about, the Bodega fiasco up and down Bloomfield Avenue. It pisses me off to even think about it. If you are the mob--darn it be the mob, if you are a politician or a police officer, be that. Everybody turns each other in trying to save their own butt, I can't imagine for the life of me why no one in New Jersey every figured this out.

(Disclosure and probably not far from the truth, and of course IMO): You really want to know where almost all the high ranking moves are configured in the state of New Jersey? On Bloomfield Avenue and the diners along Route 3 and 46. Not Trenton.

I would assume that most of the current employees of Atlantic City are ex-cons, with limited education that were given jobs (that pay three times national average) by the bafoons that ran this City for years. The attitude is "I needs to get mine". Every man for himself. Now we're being taken over by the State or as locals call it "the man". It's apartheid!

I've been waiting months for the first Republican to say a word in rebuke about Chris Christy wasting millions of taxpayer money on backing the Revel. Yet they are all quick to mention Solyndra. I'd like to see a thread about that.



Not yet seen in NJ-a single bumper sticker stating "Don't blame me I voted for Corzine".

Some of you people from the west have NO idea how corrupt, incompetent, slimy, putrid and arrogant the NJDP which brought the state the highest property taxes in the US really is.

As a card carrying Republican (not literally, both states I have been a resident of don't require party registration) I like Christie as a person and I like listening him speak. His tirades have been labeled as conservative porn by Anne Coulter for a reason. However, there are too many unanswered questions and I don't think he could effectively talk his way out of the bridge fiasco as well as AC if it came down to it. He would never make it through a primary, we have better options on the table.

I believe the liberals fear Christie as someone those in the middle could vote for over a Dem. Why else do you think MSNBC spends so much time trying to discredit him? It's like they are obsessed with him, spending entire segments on him weekly.

That's probably because Christie IS someone moderates could vote for over a Dem, unlike nearly all the other Rep choices.

I agree 100%, which is why I want him to run. Not only because he is moderate, but because most Americans are moderate in their beliefs. The far left and right just dont get average Americans. Most people want to work hard, be left alone to make choices on things that are legal and do believe there are many that cheat the system and dont want to financially support them. That goes for the rich, who get help they dont need, and the poor, who make choices that keep them that way.

It's just the left has found a way to make people feel like they are wrong or "meanspirited" if they speak out against those who dont try hard enough to make ends meet. And we have a President now who is always trying to play people against one another.

So you feel you have a pretty good handle on what "moderates" are apt to vote for? Really Barbara? Really kiddo?!?!

I think Christie will show up reasonably well in polling within a field of 15 or 20. Soon after it gets down to two or three, and among those who are most likely to vote and to know why they want to, not much at all. "So Guv, why are you running? Obviously we know something you'd like to BE, but what is it other than yourself that you particularly believe in and want to DO exactly?"
