New Jersey Democrats don’t mind a Chris Christie reelection: Why should they? He’s a fake GOPer

When Chris Christie won election to the New Jersey governorship in 2009, he served as a useful blunt against the election of President Barack Obama.But, after the dust settled the reality was that Christie is just another blue state Republican.

Translation-a Liberal who puts an R in the back of his name for political expediency.

The media loves Christie which usually is the first sign they think he’s one of their own.So get ready to read media claims that Christie is the “most electable” Republican in God’s creation.Sound familiar?: : : 

Politico reports New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has made little secret that he wants a resounding win in his reelection this year as a show of strength for his all-but-assumed 2016 presidential candidacy.chrisitie

I don’t see why any Democrat in New Jersey would have an problem with Chris Christie considering he’s to the left of John Kerry on the Liberal scale.Despite what the corrupt media may say about Christie being the most popular Republican in the country, he’s the least popular among conservatives.That’s a pretty large hurdle for him to overcome to get the GOP nod for prez in 2016.

I think he’s got no shot.But, the media needs to write about something.
