    A Romney repeat. No conservative votes, no victory...
    I want to make it clear to the GOP leadership and others who may want to make Christie our nominee in 2016.

    I will vote for a conservative even if you make me write in one of my own.

    I think its refreshing to see Christie out there in politics. However that being said, I feel he is too loud mouthed and needs to tone it down and listen more and not be so much on the defensive when his policies are challenged. Being a governor and being in DC as he will find out are two different things. I love how the liberal and conservative press are making the election of 2016 and 2014 like sports, and its why I think so many people in recent years have begun to get really turned off with this nonsense. If Hillary runs, I won't be voting for her. Jeb Bush runs, he won't get my vote. We need new unknown faces that have good credentials. If Christie can tone down his criticism and stop being so defensive, I may just give the guy a chance. I am an independent moderate and do not side with any one party. I gave GOP 18 years and the democrats 7 years. I think the whole entire two party system is broken. Lets say Christie was to get elected in 2016 and then decided he had enough of the Republican party, and became an independent, it would send a loud message to the establishments on both parties. It will be interesting to see if he can pull it off, but like I said 2016 election is 3 years away and the press needs to be focused on 2013, not 2014, 15, or 16. Time will take care of itself whether we like it or not.

      It doesn't matter who is elected in 2016, the politics will still be the same and the American people will suffer for it.
