Chris Christie in 2016?
Original post made by voter on Oct 31, 2012
Is Christie intentionally trying to scuttle Romney, to give Christie a shot at the Republican presidential nomination in 2016? Christie vs. Hillary anyone?
Meanwhile, Romney's response to the hurricane is collecting canned goods?

Chris Chrisite can read polls, and knows it's an open seat in 2016 after Obama's second term.
If Christie loses 75 lbs by the midterms, he's running.
Romney's still flailing around trying to come up with a closing message Americans won't laugh at -- like the lie that China will take all Jeep production!

Romney's been getting away with lying all campaign, the press is finally calling him on it. That's why Obama is pulling away in the final week.
Obama wins 299 - 239; Dems retain the Senate (add 1) and pick up 20 House seats.

The resources from the federal government for New Jersey, if any, should be directed by Christie, not FEMA. Romney is right.
Christie is an emotional guy, and wears his feelings on his sleeve. He is a Huey Long type of politician, attracting the naive to his cause...a cult of peronality.

Why does Sean want my tax dollars sent to a governor we never voted for?
I want the guarantee of FISCAL ACCOUNTABILITY that FEMA brings, not going to some governor in a state with the highest reputation for organized crime.
No accountability from Christie is wrong. Transparency and accountability to our elected government is good, sound, conservative principles.
A true fiscal conservative supports FEMA and accountability, not handing our tax dollars to governor with no accountability to American taxpayers.
