Governor Chris Christie... A Man for Our Nation's Future

Governor Christie is a man with integrity. An individual who, unlike Sara Palin, is committed to serving his full term as Governor.

He appears, at least at present, to be a man that understands his primary goal is to serve the state of New Jersey and the people who elected him Governor.

This is a man we can respect. Not only for the principals of governance he holds as proper, but for his integrity as well.

Governor Chris Christie is a bright and shining star if you will for the future of national politics. He may very well be the best the future holds in store for America.

Below his comments on a Presidential run in 2012 and his thoughts as to the future. As reported by The Hill.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) brushed off a Zogby poll from earlier this month that showed him leading a pack of hypothetical GOP 2012 contenders, adamantly stressing that's not in his plans.

"The president can rest easy because the only guy who beats him in that poll isn't running," Christie said on "Fox News Sunday."

"I have a commitment to my state," he said, adding that he'd only been governor for a year and New Jersey's problems still need fixing.

"You have to believe in your heart that you're personally ready to be president and I'm not there," Christie said. "I am not arrogant enough to believe that after one year as governor ... that I am ready to be president of the United States."

"So I'm not going to run," the governor said.

According to that poll, Christie would beat President Obama 43 percent to 40 percent, while former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would run even with Obama. In the poll, the president would beat Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee.

Christie never said never, though.

"If I were ever to do it I want to make sure in my heart I feel ready," he said.
A man with principle. A man this nation certainly could use on the national stage in 2016 or 2020.

  1. While I love watching him slap around the unions as much as the next guy, Gov. Christie’s squishy on Cap-n-Trade and weak on 2nd Amendment issues.

    He’s not at all tough on ObamaCare

    He endorsed Mike Castle... uber Rino

    No thanks

  2. He needs to clarify his position on guns. That could be a serious problem.

  3. "An individual who, unlike Sara Palin, is committed to serving his full term as Governor."

    Mr. Carpenter, I have often admired your thoughtful posts, but this one line made me think you hadn't done your homework. Do you know why Sarah Palin left the office? Your one line seems to fall into the liberal trap making it seem like it was an easy choice ... like getting a new hair style.

    Regardless of your obvious slam against Sarah Palin, I am also a fan of Christie.

  4. w/ no rest for the weary:

  5. Good post Les. We can admire a person's efforts without automatically elevating the person to Presidential status. I admire many of Palin's positions as well. But I'll be quite happy if neither one of them runs for President. I'm hopeful that a serious, small government, constitutionally coherent, fically responsible contender will arise from outside most of the group who are usually mentioned.

  6. I wonder if Chris Christie would show the same integrity as Sara Palin, if he happens to come under the same or similar circumstances. I certainly hope he doesn't. But either way, I would be supportive of the conservative efforts he has made...

  7. Christie is my hero. I just pray he doesn't keel over from a heart attack.

  8. Look, he may not be perfect, but when I look at him compared to Romney, I see someone who has beliefs and is willing to stick with them. When faced with a losing prospect, he tries to get as much as he can.

    Romney still can't admit that Robamneycare didn't work. Sarah Palin would be nice, but I still don't think she could win.

    You will not ever find a candidate that you agree with 100% of the time (unless you are running), but with Christie you have honesty that you don't see much in this world.

    Reagan ain't coming back from the grave.

  9. Why use blind praise of Christie as an excuse to defecate on Sarah Palin?

    What is gained? What is proved?
