Is Chris Christie Reconsidering 2012 Presidential Run? Decision "In Days"

Just when it was thought the GOP field was set, there might be a whole new wrinkle to the race.  New Jersey governor Chris Christie is said to be re-considering his decision not to run for President in 2012.

Speaking to an audience at New Jersey’s Rider University concerning the lack of leadership in the current GOP crop, Christie said:

“I think what the country is thirsting for, more than anything else right now, is someone of stature and credibility to tell them that and say, ‘Here’s where I want us to go to deal with this crisis’.  The Fact that nobody yet who’s running for president, in my view, has done that effectively is why you continue to hear people ask Daniels if he’ll reconsider and ask me if I’ll reconsider.”

If Governor Christie gets in the race, it will be the bombshell of the 2012 season and probably more bad news for Texas Governor Rick Perry.  His decision will be announced “within two weeks,” sources said.


Stay tuned, folks.

  1. OK, think about the electoral shift if you had a Christie/Romney ticket. Granted it doesn’t look so hot geographically, BUT think about the potential picking up of Jersey’s 14 and Michigan’s 16; and even possibly Massachusetts’ 11, especially if the economy continues to limp along. Thats 41 electorals – an 82 point swing!

    Combine that with the fact that Obama won Florida, Virgina, North Carolina and Indiana in 2008 by a combine vote count of under 500k of voters (another 134 vote swing) and….

    add that to the current red states from 08, who now hold 180 electorals (and I doubt any of those states would jump over to vote for Obama at this point) and you have 396 electoral votes. how many to win? 270.

  2. To whom it may concern. I am begging as a member of ” We the People”, the ones people take oaths to serve or protect, need an individual to stand up for me and all the other unrepresented “me’s” in this “The Republic for which we Stand”, and lead this Democracy back to Freedom and Independence. Sir, I believe you, the Honorable Chris Christie, are that individual that can lead this country as our Commander and Chief and so follow the oath you take to the letter of the words our fore fathers intended us to follow. I hope this makes some shred of sense. I have ideas of my own as to how to move this country in the right direction, with truth for all.
    God Bless You Sir
    Do you actually think when you watch the republican debates, Oh! He/she will defeat President Obama. If you believe that sir then please accept my apologies for wasting your time. If you see it like millions of Americans do, then Stand Up and fight to set this country state. I would gladly stand with you and I am just an average working class struggling person.

      1. There are two glaring differences that say Obama and Clinton reelection attempts are a world apart: 1- The light speed of Internet information sharing, such as CDN right here, which has allowed the people to see these Liberal lunatics for exactly who they are, and 2 – The economy.

        Of course we also have the intangibles to consider, like the Solyndra pay to play fraud on the taxpayers, fast n furious gunrunner scandal that goes all the way to the White House, and the Light-squared debacle just to name a few . People have [finally] gotten over the half-black pass/victim card that got Obama elected. Clinton also didn’t come anything close to the [blatant] Socialism inherent in Obama-care.

        Stick a fork in the O-cat he is a one and done President and a disgrace to all true concerned Americans minus the ignorant neanderthals who voted for the undefined hope n change con job.

        1. You totally missed the point DJ and, in fact, illustrated it instead. I was trying to convey that over confidence is a very real danger in this race. The things you pointed out mean very little in terms of the fact that Obama has a solid 38% committed to voting for him.

          If someone like Donald Trump comes in as a third party candidate, all bets are off.

          We have a little over 13 months to go before this election and A LOT can change between now and then. It behooves us as Conservatives to not loose sight of goal and treat Obama like the worthy opponent that he is because this election will be tough. Mark my words. It’s anything but a foregone conclusion.

          1. I,m sorry but I do not agree with your statement Mike. On one hand you want to reference history with Clinton, then you deny historical fact in what happened in the 2010 elections. I in no way, shape, or form sit here resting on my laurels, as far as continuing to work to defeat the Marxist radical from Chicago. I didn’t miss any point, but instead made a simple observation that Barack is one and done .Period.

            I enjoy getting up every day at 4;30 am researching and exposing Liberals to better inform the voting public on just what Obama represents, not what he says he represents but what he actually does . Actions speak louder than words. I see the big picture clearly, America has finally caught on to the media manipulation, the lies and the un-American agenda of Obama and the Liberal lunatics. Add that up and there will not be nearly as many Americans sitting this vote out as in years past, especially those who sat out in 2006,2008. That translates into Barack getting beat handily, and I,ll say it again.,Barack is one and done..A Mickey Mouse/Donald Duck ticket would beat him.

          2. DJ –

            1. I was not questioning your work ethic. It’s good that you get up early and fight liberalism every day. That’s beside the point.
            2. None of the previous discussions were talking at all about the 2010 elections. I was making a simple comparison between 1996 and 2012. No mention was made of the Democrat’s victory in 2006 off-year elections or the Republican’s victory in 2010 off-year elections.
            3. Making a statement as if it were fact for an event that hasn’t happened yet is pure folly. I agree with you that it’s likely Obama won’t win re-election, but it is ridiculous for you to state with such certainty that he won’t get re-elected, either by hook or by crook. I don’t put anything past his team’s Chicago thug tactics. Dead people vote in Chicago, remember?
            4. It’s an APOSTROPHE, not a COMMA. How can we ever be taken seriously if we can’t or won’t use the language appropriately?

  3. A perfect combination to win and to fix the mess this country’s in is a Christie/Cain or Cain/Christie ticket. C’mon Governor Christie…throw your hat in the ring.

  4. Odds of Obama losing the 2012 election are about 3:1.

    Odds of a mega-disaster occurring over the next 12 months thus preventing a November 2012 election from taking place are about 1:1,000,000.

    I think I’ll bet on the mega-disaster. That is what liberals are banking on to turn this country into a communist state, never hurts to prepare for it.
