Chris Christie To Launch 2016 Bid With Promise Of Straight Talk


NEW YORK, June 30 (Reuters) - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will formally launch his 2016 presidential bid on Tuesday, hoping to rejuvenate his sagging poll numbers with a dose of personality and a vow to be the blunt-talking Republican who tells it like it is.

The launch will give Christie, once seen as a top 2016 contender but now viewed as a long shot, a chance to reframe his battered image and reset the plummeting expectations for his campaign.

The 52-year-old Christie will make his announcement among family, friends and supporters at his old high school in Livingston, New Jersey, where he was class president. He will then head out on the campaign trail to New Hampshire.


Well it looks like Taft 2.0 is going to officially throw in the towel for the Presidential election. I hope they have a bathtub custom fitted for him if he ends up elected.

Here's potential President Big Mac's campaign platform:
Christie on the Issues

I mean I'M not going to ever vote for someone who would completely recriminalize marijuana and see Christie as more of a Statist than a person for small government, but hey some people may see differently. Nor do I think he has a snowball's chance on the sun of being elected.

I know all the fat jokes are unnecessary, but Christie is probably the BIGGEST hypocrite running for president right now (pun not intended... or is it?). For instance, I'm not sure what "straight talk" is supposed to be. He claims it is him saying it how it is. I think that it's really just code speak for "my way or the highway". Clearly being against marijuana isn't conducive to saying it how it is since the majority of the country thinks it should be legal now and disagrees with just about ALL of the state sponsored propaganda against it that he 100% supports (despite hypocritically being a fatass destroying his health by overeating).


It should also be noted that Christie doesn't know that the 10th Amendment can't overrule the 14th Amendment and wanted to keep the gay marriage issue in the hands of the states. So clearly he doesn't know how our Constitution works.

I've always wondered why the Republicans have to field 13+ candidates for president when they all talk the same, vote the party line and will do whatever they are told.

It's more of a clown circus than a presidential field.

Yea, I said in a previous thread that the Presidential candidates should all show up in a clown car with circus music playing and they all pop out of the back seat.

Chris Christie is as far from candidate material as is Trump. Doesn't stop them from throwing all their hats in the ring…

How many candidates this make for the Republicans? Whats that overall strategy, again? To water down any attempt at defeating Hillary?

Someone enlighten me. Shouldn't they present a unified front instead of the Tin Soldier parade?

Or is it just plain jumping on stage for self aggrandizement?

I'd never vote for anybody who want to recriminalize marijuana either. Hey is that what "straight talk" means ?!

If Round Boy does run, make sure you like whoever runs as his VP, incase Christie has the big one in office.

I'd pay to see that.


In my opinion, this shows that there isn't one person in the GOP that has the charisma, ideals and leadership to lead the party in to a presidential position. They must throw a dozen or so people in to the race and go with the guy who's left after the smoke clears.

That's not how you pick a leader.

Chris Christie To Launch 2016 Bid With Promise Of Straight Talk


The only straight talk Christie will be doing, will be when he is talking about what marriages should be allowed.

Or having Donuts going straight to his belly.

No ,all this means that most of the politicians were waiting for the 2016 election..Who do those Dem's have an old socialist stuck in the 70s and one that cannot tell the outright truth....The reason that these are the only 2 is the rest of them will sit this one out due to the mess our current President has led this country into.

"Straight Talking" out of both sides of his mouth! Is that the promise he is making???

It's more like that the Republicans have become so polarized and disjointed that they can field candidates from different parts of the political spectrum and still be able to call themselves Republicans.

The quality (read lack thereof) of GOP candidates over the last decade or so is quite astounding. I can almost guarantee it will come down to Bush v Clinton. Maybe Sanders can pull a Perot and get in there and shake things up as an independent. He'd get my vote right now.

"Straight talk and Crooked Lane Closures"
Great slogan.

I sorta think of it as a Disney Land of the Delusional and the Damned.

Regardless of your opinion, it would appear that the Democratic party is more unified that the Republicans.

It is my opinion that a majority of the Republican candidates do not want the presidency, they want the name recognition and exposure so that they can get deals with Fox News, book deals and other perks. That's what Huckabee did. That's what Palin did.

I hope they are going to publish a program soon, so we can keep up with the faces and names in this clown car. I'm starting to wonder which count will be higher.... the number of Republican candidates... or the number of women accusing Bill Cosby of rape?

That is what McCain and Romney wanted in their respective runs.Thus the appointment of their respective potential VPs

But is that necessarily a GOOD thing? How disjointed can a party become before it just becomes more conducive to make a new one?

I'm sorry Chris, but your foot dragging lead to that archetype being filled by someone else...his name is Donald.
And honestly he's better at it than you.
