SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Gov. Chris Christie arrived on the impeccably manicured grounds of the Phoenician Resort Tuesday with one stated goal for his term as chairman of the Republican Governors Association: To elect governors from his party. But along…

    How Christie makes it through the primaries, especially the Southern primaries.

  2. Oh, gosh, I don't know, said at 10:12 am on November 20th, 2013:

    maybe trash every single better, more conservative person? A la Palin, Cruz, Paul, etc.? And I mean the Rino’s doing it to their fellow Republicans.. Can see it all now, here we go again.. What a mess this will be..

    What world do you live in you actually think Sarah Palin is qualified to be President or for that fact any of the so called conservative you mentioned can even win.

    That’s great keep supporting that crew and you guarantee 8 more years if not more of what we have now.

    Elect your so called conservatives to the legislative branch so that you can form a majority there. Concentrate on controlling the House and Senate. Then nominate a Presidential candidate that can actually win.

    But thats ok keep doing what you are doing and guarantee more of what we have. TheDEMS love you

    but they sure love you lefty RINOs who whack every single conservative who, God forbid, is pro- life and wants less taxes, regulation, and more freedom and property rights! Hence, the reason why we can at least agree we probably will get Hillary, although am personally hoping she’s ready for the home or at least retire to go be co- president of the world with her creep of a husband! Oh and ps: Sarah Palin would be ten times better than the socialist we have now, but then again, so would just about anybody’s lawn guy, pizza guy, or anybody’s brother in law,at this point, in this awful presidency!!

    I’m a lefty RINO? Thats the funniest thing I every heard. So “MAYBE” do you know me. I still can’t contain myself from cracking up.

    I’m a realist and pramatic and I know that Cruz and his lot will never see the White House. That is way the conservatives should concentrate on the Legislative Branch and nominate a moderate Republican that can win.

    First of all whether you want to admit it or not we need independents to win a Presidential election. They will not vote for Cruz and his lot.

    Second, the conservatives can win in smaller races that will enable them to take a majority in the Legislature since they are not national and their candidates do not have to appeal to a broader base.

    Third, just because the pizza guy is better than Obama does not make Palin qualified. She is a disaster. And if thats your thinking then why not elect a Moderate Republican and a conservative Legislature.

    Guess you are smarter than me so lets get ready for more years of this and then it will really be to late.

    P.S. I still can’t stop cracking up over the lefty comment. Thanks for the laugh!!

  6. GOP needs a bigger tent said at 9:15 pm on November 21st, 2013:

    Hopefully Chris Christie becomes the GOP nominee in 2016 and expands the GOP tent to include independents and conservative Democrats, otherwise the GOP stays a minority party dominated by Tea Party crybabies and delusional kool-aid drinking crackpots. We need real leaders in Congress like the ones who led us to victory in the 1980s, leaders like Howard Baker, Bob Dole, Trent Lott and Newt Gingrich. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are circus clowns who will lead the GOP to permanent minority status within the next three years.

  7. Because, "lefty," said at 7:35 am on November 22nd, 2013:

    IT HASN’T WORKED! – he won’t WIN..What would a Christie yield any different result than what we have been tortured with, the last 3 times that rationale was applied? and, why do you think hitching your wagon to your one star, without any ongoing, unified message as a party, will catch on and resonate enough to get the base back, and convince the few “makers”left who pay the bills, to change this entitlement mentality- I want to know, where is a loud GOP response to the rule change, the “healthcare” debacle, the ruling by executive dictate? I want fighters, who call these socialists what they are, and who are going to push past the constant accusations of racism, the moment someone criticizes the policies and the direction this country is taking- if you haven’t learned that ” reaching across the aisle,” and “working together” isn’t just us giving in, while the Dems get their agenda rammed through, we are destined to never win again, or even begin to set this ship right, and I feel sorry for your delusion..
