The REAL Problem For Chris Christie: Republicans Are Going To Hate Him

Republicans, perpetually dissatisfied with the 2012 GOP presidential field, have set their eyes on Chris Christie and don't seem to be taking his no(s) for an answer.


Every time I turn around I see something about republicans wanting some fat guy named Chris Christie to run for prez, they say if he enters the race he will get the GOP nomination for sure, but why? Lardo isn't even a republican and he is a jerk.

If he decides to throw his hat in the ring, however, they will have to come to terms with the fact that Christie is unlikely to appeal to the party's ultra-conservative, tri-corner hat-wearing, Bible-thumping base.

Here's why:

He believes in climate change.

He likes Muslims.

He thinks illegal immigrants should get amnesty. If the GOP thought Rick Perry has an illegal immigration problem, just wait until they hear from Christie. He has said that he believes their should be an "orderly path to citizenship," which, to the Tea Party, is pretty much the same thing as an open invitation to cross the border.

He supports gun control. That's right — Chris Christie wants to encroach upon the sacred Second. In an interview with Sean Hannity in 2009, Christie said he supports "common-sense" gun control laws to deal with New Jersey's "hand gun problem." Compare that to Rick "Use Both Hands" Perry and Christie's got no shot south of the Mason-Dixon.

He called Obama an "ally on education." In a year where more than one of the Republican presidential candidates has called for abolishing the Department of Education entirely, Christie may as well be running as a Democrat.


Do the republicans here on ATS like him?

Governor Sandwiches is not as bad as people make him out to be but I still don't like him. Not sure if you could call me a Republican though.

I second that!!

I've done a lot of digging on Christie over the past week. He is definitely not a conservative. I came up with the same results as the OP. I mean…come on…how conservative can he be getting elected in Jersey?? He also has some questionable ethical issues in his past. This is another guy being thrown into the field “to save the GOP” and return us to conservative values. But he’s no savior….he represents more of the same IMO.

The only thing I do like about Christie is the way he handles himself...he's a no-BS guy and will get in your face. As I said before in another post, if Ron Paul had the command presence of Christie he'd be destroying the field right now.
