Christie: “I won’t be governor in 2014”

By Art Gallagher

While criticising President Obama’s comments to the nation’s governors about public employee unions and health care, Governor Chris Christie told reporters that he will not be governor in 2014, according to Herb Jackson of The Record.

“I’m not going to even be governor in 2014, so the fact that he’s offering flexibility in 2014 is really of no moment to most governors who need to balance their budgets this year,” Christie said.

If reelected in 2013, Christie would be sworn in to his secord term in January 2014.

At his Town Hall meeting in Middletown on January 26th, Christie said he was going to seek a second term as governor.

The governor has repeatedly declared that he is not running for president in 2012.

Maybe his plans are changing.

    No, his plans are not changing.
    I give the Governor credit. He is doing what needs to be done realizing that in doing it he is going to piss off so many people that he will not be re-elected.

    That’s because with a cabinet full of left-wing liberal Democrats making policy, an anti-suburban state aid formula worse than Corzine’s and no real reductions in state government programs, New Jersey will be in even worse shape in 2013 than 2009, despite the bluster, the BS and YouTube moments.

    This guy is going to throw his hat into the ring for President or he knows Lonegan will primary him and win

    Christies claim that he is not ready is accurate.

    That is because his talk is bigger than his stature.

    Unless it begins to solidify into quantifiable results, he will never get the support of the 20% of the fiscally sane Republicans needed to win the nomination.
