    Good!

  • Good! Now go away and stop talking about you not running.

    We have important issues to consider and you are not one of them.

      As if he decides what the media wants to make into news. Its not like Christie was begging for air time to talk about how he wasnt running, in fact, he wanted nothing to do with the presidential canditacy its just the medias way of filling air time to keep all of you entertained. Psssh

    He should have run for Democratic candidate against Obama. He would have won!

    Wonder who he endorses, he gets to break some more hearts but not mine.

    All I have heard on this story for the last few months is: “Christie says he’s not running…again.” And then: “Speculation over whether Christie will run. Announcement within 72 hours.”

    If I could get as much traffic from a non story as he has, I’d be a marketing genius.

    “Guys! For the LAST TIME, steprock will NOT be running. Now stop asking.”

  • QUICK: Some one check Ann Coulter and Bill Kristol’s pulse!!!

    Why is Fox News STILL LIVE with this? It’s been what? More than 30 minutes to say, No I’m not running. Thank you.

    Christie made the right decision. If he needed to be dragged into a run for the President kicking and screaming then he wasn’t the man for the job.

    Now, hopefully, we won’t be hearing any more of this nonsense. Got that Anne Coulter?

    Edited to add, now AoS is starting to push a Paul Ryan candidacy again.

      FL really pulled the rug out on Christie yesterday by moving up their primary. He would only have had a couple of months to campaign and 1 month of that is between Thanksgiving and Christmas. It would have been political suicide for Christie to run.

    Bye, don’t let the door hit you in the rear on the way out.

    duh.

  • Everybody but the citizens of America wanted him to run. Now if we could only get him out of NJ.

    Chris Christie is about as conservative of a governor as NJ will elect. That’s great for NJ and for conservatism. We need a much more conservative candidate for President. From the current choices, that means anyone but Romney or Huntsman. My preference is Cain. Let’s move on.

    Reading the comments on this page, I must admit they are quite comical. How far to the right must one be to be elected? Reagan wouldn’t win the GOP nomination if he were alive today.

      There is no “moderate” right. That is part of the Kabuki theater. The Statists slide two giant steps stage left. They then slide one baby step stage right meet the moderate Republicans.

      There is foundation to protect from those who seek to destroy America from within. The Republican party role should be to hold that ground, to protect the Constitutional Republic that was created to preserve liberty, to put every obstacle they can in the path of inevitable self-feeding parasitic Central Government growth.

      That is exactly what Reagan was. That is exactly why both political party establishments fought him.

        To the so called moderates even the smallest baby step to the right is too far. Reagan would not recognize where this country is nor where it is headed by the no-name moderate go-along-to get-along folks. to get this country back to fiscal, social and defense sanity we need a 180 nothing less.

        Are we saying that the great Ronald Reagan isn’t as great as he is made out to be?? That’s blasphemy my friend.

          That is not what I meant. Reagan was the defender.
