    The question for the tea party should not be "is he conservative enough?". The questions for the real party should only be -

    Is he fiscally prudent?

    Will he be faithful to the Constitution?

    Gay marriage, gun rights, military budget, Afghanistan and Iraq, Israel/Palestinians, immigration my be worthy questions, but not the main concern of the tea party. If the tea party makes those core tea party issues they are straying from their roots and becoming just a catch-all conservative interest group.

    Tea Party - Ignore the fanatics that are highjacking you and cluttering you with their personal issues.

    Tea Party - GO BACK TO YOUR CORE ISSUES.

    Just more "we liberals don't think Obama will win so we want Republicans to back a RINO" horsecrap. Leave it to a discredited liberal to come here and tell us what the tea party ought to be.

    Christie is not conservative enough.

    Christie is not fiscally prudent.

    Christie is not faithful to the Constitution.

    Further, Christie is anti-gun, moreso than even Obama.

    Go peddle your liberal idiocy elsewhere. You can't get the facts straight on anything you post, and have been discredited.

    "Christie is not fiscally prudent" - Explain this.

    And this - "Christie is not faithful to the Constitution."

    Gun rights are not a core tea party issue. Leave that to the NRA.

    All rights including gun rights are a tea party issue I don't know where you got that crazy idea. There is no way a republican candidate can get nominated unless he believs in guns right and Christie does not. Besides that Christy can never get nominated while he is so much overweight the democrats will exploit that issue to distract from everything else.

    I just love it when a person like mrskeet, who hates the Tea Party, tries to tell other people what it is all about. An unbiased opinion for sure..........yeah, right.

    Wow Warren. All rights eh? Right to abortions? Right to have government pay for sex change operations. Right to free medical care? Right of every resident to tote hand grenades and bona fide full auto assuald weapons?

    Hmmm? Seems like the fruitcake wing of tea party is for everything, which means it's really for nothing.

    Barker - I'm not against the original tea party, just the fruitcake wing that wants it to be a new John Birch Society. I bet you like those wacko Birchers.

    Who really cares if he is or not? Any one of the bunch now running will beat the mulatto current resident of our White House. Maybe the possible exception of Ron Paul ?

    Okay Warren, which way do you want to twist the words? So you you don't really mean all rights then. Just some rights. Which rights are they?

    Skeet, knock off the John Birch crap. You showed your true ignorant colors on that issue already. I can't see where you get off trying to criticize conservatives or the tea party. You're still learning how to form an opinion.

    Knock off the John Birch crap? No way am I prepared to allow the John Birch freaks take over the tea party and sane conservatism. You seem especially sensitive to criticism of the John Birch weirdos. Are you a John Bircher?

    The dems haven't even focused on Cristies record. They just raised the issue of his weight as in "he's too fat to be president"...ala Al Sharpton. The Rev Sharpton suggested Saturday in a press release that he go to prison for 90 days and lose some weight on the prison diet and then laughed about it.

    Al is the epitomy of the N word...period.

    This might be news to some folks but is he too fat to be govenor also?? The heaviest president on record was Taft @ 331 lbs.

    As for Cristie for president, I wouldn't vote for him anyway based on many factors least of all his weight. As for his voting record and his stance on the constitution and 2nd amendments rights.....well it speaks for itself.

    He's a large "NO".

    Dems want to create a huge media blitz around "coaxing" him into the limelight of whether or not he plans to run for POTUS. This is in order to create a diversion while they're crapping in their pants about the ramifications of the Fast and Furious gun running scam that has now been traced back to the WH and more precisely to Barrys' office. Since there is murder involved this could make Watergate look like a minor shoplifting incident.

    Just goes to show you how deviant the Left is.


    All this push they put forth for acceptance of all people, regardless of the cut of their cloth, and then they make fun of an overweight white guy, because he is a Republican.


    Where is the civility?


    Hypocrisy at its best!


    Wouldn't Christie qualify for the Americans with Disabilities Act in his current state?

    Galt - when have you ever used reason? Mostly your writing is nothing more than juvenile name calling.

    If Christie get's in, who do you think he will take support away from? I'm betting he will take support away from Romney, which could help get us a real conservative.

    Don't know enough about Christie other than Ann Coulter is mesmerized by him.
