|New Jersey's Chris Christie is the clown car.|
New Jersey Republican Chris Christie is about to jump into the clown car. He will make a formal announcement on Tuesday.
This makes 14.
The Republican is often colorful in his rhetoric and is probably one of the very few candidates I actually believe could beat perennial candidate Hillary Clinton.
Will he be a serious candidate?
I don't know. If he's won reelection and managed to attract Black votes, it's up in the air. Some people look at him as a moderate.
A center-right candidate is way better than an extremist like Stallmigo Ted Cruz (R-TX).
Republicans aren't keen to Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Christie. They believe they're too cozy with Obama and Clinton.
The Republicans still feel betrayed by Christie after he embraced President Barack Obama's handling of Hurricane Sandy. The Republicans believe that Christie ruined perennial loser Mitt Romney's chances at winning the White House.
|Christie's weight is often questioned by agitators as a liability.|
Anyway, the junk food media has speculated that Christie was about to get in. So in order to stop the momentum they tossed the scandals that plagued him during his term. The first thing that comes to mind is his weight. They criticized the governor for being a big man in the state house.
The junk food media has been relentless on the many scandals involving him and his family. They reported on Christie taking the private plane to seeing his son play sports and hanging out with the Dallas Cowboys at ATT Stadium. Chief Roger and Rupert Murdoch both asked him back in 2012 to run against perennial loser Mitt Romney. The George Washington Bridge being delayed during rush hour became a big story in the media. The agitators believe that Christie wanted revenge on Democratic mayor from Fort Lee. No federal charges were brought against him, but the scandal will haunt him.
He's been a bully when it comes to Democrats who refuse to support him during his budget battles.
He also against vaccinations. He questioned Obama's stances vaccination. He believes that it's a parent's choice and not the government. So say if we have an outbreak of disease it's up to the child's parent get vaccinated.
Christie has battled the teacher's unions, bust up he state unions, and wants New Jersey to become a right-to-work state.
Christie once embraced the Tea Party. But it seems now that he's abandon a plural of the insurgency's views on immigration, marriage legality and trade policy.
His stances has moderated due to his state's deeply Democratic tilt. He easily beat the Democratic nominee in 2013 after swaying Black voters. He won over 40% of the Black vote in his reelection bid.
The AP reports that Christie's political team has gone live with a presidential campaign website days before he jumps into the 2016 race.
|Conservatives will go after Christie for embracing Obama.|
Christie also is promoting the site with a short animated video posted on his Twitter feed. The site says it's paid for Chris Christie for President, Inc.
Christie has a "special announcement event" set for Tuesday in the gym of Livingston High School, from which he graduated in 1980. Donors and friends have gotten invitations, and Christie's team has invited reporters to attend.
After his announcement, Christie plans to go to New Hampshire for a town hall meeting.
So what's your thoughts on Christie jumping in?
