The rehabilitation begins.

But, of course, let us remember this scene RIGHT BEFORE THE ELECTION:

No doubt that he's shot himself in the foot.  Before that absurd display, he was almost as much of a likely nominee as Hillary is.  Things change and while he's certainly a viable candidate, he has an uphill climb in the early primaries.
It's the Supreme Court nominations!

Christie will not play well, other than to liberals who, in the end, won't vote for him any ways because he's a republican, not a democrat.  And then there's the stain of that bridge corruption investigation, which has gone criminal now.

Yep.  Christie's behaviour before the election and his speech at the convention were certainly self-serving.  I don't trust him.

Yeah, the only chance I see for him is if the Republicans go back into a circular firing squad as they did during the 2012 campaign and he ducks.

Christie may be a good choice for governor for a state like NJ but as POTUS, nope. We could start with his gunphobic ways and go from there. Personally, I will never support anyone that doesn't believe in the most basic concept that people have a right to defend themselves.

The media is going to try and pick our candidate for us AGAIN!

And why shouldn't they? After all we have let them do it so often in the past!

I've never done this before, but if Christie is the nominee, I'm staying home. That's a promise.

Media plays a big role.  But they don't vote; we do.  What we get is what we vote for.

I'd much rather have a Democrat grab my gun than a pseudo Republican.

A lot of folks said the same thing about McCain and Romney.  Looking back over the past 5 years, I can't envision a scenario where either would have been worse than what we have today.

I held my nose and voted McCain. I honestly don't know if he would have been better than Obama I. It's close.

I was enthusiastic about Romney. I thought he was a capable administrator, who would govern to the middle, and bring us together, so we could all dislike him. I'm half kidding, but governing in the middle will irritate everyone at some point. And I'm ok with that.

Christie is a loud mouth bully who seems like Obama in a different form. No thanks. Not now, not ever, never.

I don't find anything appealing or exciting about him.   :shrug:

Which is part of his problem with Republicans in general right now.  Add to that his issues in New Jersey that are dogging him, and he's got to be a long shot at this point.
