Christie’s ‘bizarre behavior’ could undermine presidential chances

December 2, 2013

Gov. Chris Christie’s “bizarre behavior’’ in refusing to say he’ll support a possible GOP challenger to Gov. Cuomo next year could derail his chances to become president, state and national GOP insiders have told The Post.

“Christie already has a problem with many Republicans refusing to forgive him because of his embrace of [President] Obama and his socially liberal policies,’’ said a nationally prominent GOP operative. “But this bizarre behavior in suggesting he won’t help a Republican defeat a Democratic governor, and a Cuomo no less, could finish off his chances of becoming his party’s nominee for president in 2016,’’ the operative continued.

Cuomo claimed last week that Christie, the new head of the Republican Governors Association — an organization whose purpose is to elect GOP governors — had quickly called him to say The Post was wrong in reporting the New Jersey governor was ready to back Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, should he become the Republican nominee for governor next year.

“I spoke to Gov. Christie this morning, who told me the exact opposite,’’ Cuomo contended in reference to last week’s “Inside Albany” column.

But Christie spokesman Colin Reed refused to confirm Cuomo’s claim, referring questions to Christie political consultant and longtime GOP operative Mike DuHaime, who likewise refused to comment.

    With Christi’s belief in Global Warming I don’t think he has a chance
    at all of being the GOP Frontrunner. I think Sara Palin or Ted Cruz will win out. but then again Texas Governor Rick Perry with the excellent way he has run Texas and all the Jobs he has created I think he may be the best Governor for the Ticket.

    Chrisie has been a RINO all along and does not deserve to be so much as considered for the Presidency in 2016, much less rated as having first place in polls today for that nomination. We need to get a real conservative for that candidacy…Ted Cruz for President to save America from the progressives!

    Morbid(ly obese) Chris should forget it, throw away his mirrors, and find a nice little house in the Delaware Water Gap and retire. He’s wasting resources, energy, and our time with his egoism. Please get off the neo-con band wagon, and give the GOP a chance to survive. It really needs the Tea-Party at its grass-roots base (not the neo-conned leadership part). I just wish Ron Paul was ten years younger, as he’s needed to save the GOP. Down with “progressivism.”

    I am no fan of Christie BUT, castigating him for embracing the President of the United States for providing aid to the storm victims in NJ demonstrates how mean and nasty some aspects of GOP politics has become. Especially striking is a prominent Oklahoma politician,whose name escapes me, who opposed aid to NJ while cheerfully accepting it for his own OK tornado victims.

    Oh dear; a conundrum. Support this buffoon? Or get the rest of the Marxist agenda enacted? How low has a party sunk when this opportunist is the “dream candidate.”?

    Gov. Chris Christie’s “bizarre behavior’’ is indicative of a RINO looking for a home. Wise up folks. . . . . . .dump him while we can.
