Christie is a traitor. It’s all about him. Bet he switches party before 2016.

“Chiesa” = a name that even a life-long, dedicated, fully-informed NJ Republican wouldn’t recognize.

“Heck of a job,” uber uber rhino RINO christie !

Love that still shot of Gov. Butterball®, it kinda’, sorta’ shows he’s a Blubbering Jerk.

When someone tries to gull me with Christie apologetics about how a conservative governor ‘must’ operate in a deep blue state like NJ I just hold up one hand and say, “Scott Walker”.

Teach me here.

Protocol for replacing an elected official who conks out / leaves office is to replace with a person from the same party.

Given The dead guy was an Independant. – there is no party & one must go as completely impartial as one can . An Attorney General in this case seems a fair choice.

Why do posters here believe the replacement should be Repub & furthermore , a Repub of their liking?

Christie is a self-serving blowhard.

The replacement should be a GOP Conservative because the governor is a GOPer who tried to advertise himself as Conservative. Besides, and more importantly, we need someone in the Senate who will vote against the Obama agenda and, like Ted Cruz, give the old fart GOPers and Democrats hell. We need a man of principle, not a rubber stamp.So, balance, shmalance. The party controlling the governor’s mansion gets to decide on the replacement. No Democrat would choose a GOPer, much less a Conservative.

Christie that self-serving sod chose someone nobody knows as an alternative to choosing someone who may be diskliked by Obama and the Democrat donors who are rushing to fill his pockets.

It’s all about the fat boy.
