Chris Christie 'readier' than ever for 2016 presidential run
« on: January 20, 2014, 01:14:46 PM »

Chris Christie has declared himself “readier” to run for US president in 2016, even while facing new claims of political bullying from a town mayor over hurricane relief funds.

In his first interview since a revenge scandal engulfed his office, the New Jersey governor declared himself a “fairly good politician” and made clear he was considering a presidential bid.

After saying he expected the Republican nominee to be a state governor like him, Mr Christie was reminded that in 2011 he said he was not ready to run.

“Yeah. I’m readier,” he said.

His remarks came as Dawn Zimmer, the mayor of Hoboken, alleged that Mr Christie’s office had threatened to withhold millions of dollars in Hurricane Sandy recovery funds from her stricken town unless she approved a property development scheme that the governor wanted.

If you didn't see SNL's skewering of Christie (and also: Piers Morgan, Alex Rodriguez and Justin Bieber) this past weekend, it's worth watching...

Why has Trump done scores of interviews on Fox and virtually nowhere else the last two months? Because he’s not interested in winning over undecideds, independents, or swing voters — you know the sort of thing serious presidential candidates do. No, he’s reselling the same product to people who’ve already bought it so he can take the customers with him after the election.

Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Four years and his state is number 50 in fiscal soundness.. sounds like a perfect replacement for O /s
