With Enemies Like This, Who Needs Enemies?

Chris Christie – who has stared down mobsters and the New Jersey teachers union, pardon the redundancy, and who issued a denial of knowledge last week of his staff’s alleged shenanigans that is tailor-made to backfire if he does happen to be lying – has come under attack by…

    Who came up with the crazy idea that Christie could be the GOP presidential nominee in 2016? Democrat ‘journalists’ and op-ed writers?

    Likely the same folks who brought us John McCain: Maverick and Republican Presidential Candidate. Unless the GOP can reorganize and get their priorities in synch with non-democrats, I’d be surprised if he didn’t wind up on the ticket in one of the two positions …
