Chris Christie, not Rubio,
best bet in 2016

USA Today, by Dewayne Wickham

Original Article

Posted By:RUReadyY3K, 2/19/2013 7:31:38 PM

The GOP´s chances of winning the White House in 2016 are linked more closely to the political fortunes of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie than those of Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. Rubio is the Tea Party wunderkind who was tapped by Republicans to give the GOP response to President Obama's State of the Union Address. He began his retort with a dusted off reference to his parents' emigration from Cuba to the United States. During his political ascendancy in Florida, Rubio often talked of how his mom and dad fled that Caribbean island after Fidel Castro came to power in 1959.

Comments:
Christie is picked for GOP by left wing media, so we should see a lot of favorable coverage up until he is nominated. Then, of course, is a fat, loud mouthed bully compared to Hilary

If the Republicans think that many R´s stayed home because they didn´t like Romney, I will even stay home if Christie is the one.

I don´t know who this airhead thinks he is, but the folks who compose the voting element of the GOP don´t live in New York or New Jersey. They believe that Marco Rubio is much closer to them than Chris Christie.

2016 will be interesting with Christie, Jindal, Rubio, Rand Paul and who knows who else vying to lead the party. The left however will not be dictating the candidate, they better spend their time shoring up what looks like a weak batch of democrats.

Since we are naming Conservative stars - Wisconsin´s Governor Scott Walker went through hell and came out stronger.

I really admire Ted Cruz - he´s strong, smart, and steady. Anyone who has argued at the Supreme Court more than any other Texas lawyer or member of Congress has to be very level headed. I don´t think he would call Obama a "nice guy but in over his head".

The GOP bench is deep. What we are lacking is someone who is innovative in marketing our candidate. Of course it helps if the candidate is a solid conservative but his/her ideas can appeal to non-Republicans.

Christie will be the John Huntsman of 2016. If the liberal media tells us we should vote for Christie, that means we need to run away screaming in the other direction.

Christie is a fat, blustering, classless fool. He stabbed Romney in the back when Romney needed him most. I understand that NY and NJ are having all kinds of problems with the Sandy response, but no one will call out Obama and FEMA. Everyone just remembers the well-publicized hug and thinks the whole area has been put back together nicely.

The New Mexico Supreme Court is cautioning the state´s trial courts that citizens who don´t speak English have the right to serve on juries. The court issued the admonition in a ruling that upholds an Albuquerque man´s convictions for murder and other crimes in the bludgeoning death of his girlfriend and a subsequent armed robbery and stabbing. Michael Samora's appeal argued that his convictions should be reversed because the Bernalillo County court excused a Spanish-speaking prospective juror who had trouble understanding English.

President Obama is considering asking Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) to serve as his next defense secretary, part of an extensive rearrangement of his national security team that will include a permanent replacement for former CIA director David H. Petraeus. Although Kerry is thought to covet the job of secretary of state, senior administration officials familiar with the transition planning said that nomination will almost certainly go to Susan E. Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. John O. Brennan, Obama’s chief counterterrorism adviser, is a leading contender for the CIA job if he wants it,

Obama to Boehner:

President Obama´s remarks today about the so-called "fiscal cliff" set the stage for a showdown with Congress likely to last for the next few months. Obama set one line in the sand: revenue. He announced that he would compromise with Republicans, but would not give up his insistence that high-income Americans pay more taxes as part of any long-term deficit solution. Interestingly, Obama´s remarks were not predicated on the assumption that the two sides would strike a deal before January. In fact he assumed they would not, and his message was designed to be repeated through the new year.

Democrats know they'll need a new standard bearer regardless of whether Obama is re-elected, and there are plenty of possibilities -- from Hillary Rodham Clinton to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
