Christie to True Believers

Gov. Christie said "You will never get the perfect candidate."  "If you want someone who thinks exactly like you.  Buy a mirror."

This is true, but it is no reason to compromise your beliefs past the point you are comfortable. It is also why Cristie will never be a serious contender.

Yes, buy a mirror or run for Office.

"Christie will never be. .." Why Guy, because he is such a straight shooter?

Mike D. said...

When Christie runs, I will donate to his campaign and offer to work for him locally.

No, because he is a liberal northern Republican as per his record that is called a straight shooter due to his rudeness. It must be the Yankee coming out.

Sark, I will run if you will. Christie is not viable.

Guy Faulkes- Too many bimbos in my past.

I will further Christie's assertion to say that you actually can get a candidate who thinks exactly like you. All you have to do is conform your thoughts to a strict political party line, follow like a good little sheep, then make sure you support a candidate whose message does not waiver from that party line. Presto! You can have a 'perfect' candidate!

That's exactly Christie's point. Start thinking for yourself.

And Guy, look at what you do. You talk about Christie, and you instantly begin categorizing him, labeling him, boxing him up and tucking him carefully away in a place where his individualism and forthrightness cannot affect you.

"will never be a serious contender"

"he is a liberal northern Republican"

"his rudeness... must be the Yankee coming out"

Label, label, label. Years ago, Bill Cosby did a routine on discrimination, pretending to label and stereotype others, and he suggested that "they should just put them somewhere... don't hurt them, just put them somewhere." To just be able to dismiss someone with so little difficulty, little more than a shrug of the shoulder... I could never do that.

Which candidate follows the "strict party line"? Is it not the differences in the candidates from the Party line making the discussion? Your interpretation of Christie's assertion is probably different than his. You are trying to bend and shape his assertion into your own.

MikeD. my opinion of Christie is just that, my opinion. Your opinion of Christie is just that, your opinion. You have labeled and put him in a box just as much as I have. To not do as you decry means you cannot have an opinion.

As for his being rude due to his being a Yankee, how is this comment any different now than when you made it while trying to defend the abominable behavior of BikerBard. If I remember correctly, you said he acted the way he did because of the culture in which he was raised.

I will say that my opinion is based on Chrisite's actions while yours is based on your hopes.
