What are the thoughts across the board on Chris Christie? In my adult life I've never been so excited about a candidate (that may not even be a candidate).
Quit screwing around with morons like Romney and just win the damn thing so we can fix the abortion that will have been the previous decade
Love Rubio as well, but I just think Christie's unpolished approach will be the departure that the party needs to stay relevant.
God help us. Our president was JUST inaugurated and message boards are already talking about the 2016 elections. Shit.
I just want a candidate that doesn't give a shit about social issues. Those will never be fixed and each generation brings new social issues. I want a guy that is all about finances, economy, fair taxes for all, less federal government in our lives and pro states rights.
Christie's fat arse helped give Obama the election. He's a Rhino.
Get his fat arse out

exactly what I think will get him the non-affiliated/undecided vote. the base just has to be smart enough to get him through the primaries.
Republicans need a strong candidate out of California. Seriously. Flip the script.
the last two major California players for the GOP were arguably the best Republican minds the party has had since WWII. Nixon and Reagan.
I want to learn more about him but what I've seen so far I like. I want a President who doesn't always follow the party lines.
Don't suppose you're thinking about the next college football national champ? i mean, 'Bama did JUST win.
Damn, not here too!
One of the main reasons I signed up for 247 was to completely disengage from politics. The last election cycle was just too depressing and I'm much happier now that I have no idea how the idiots in Washington are screwing us over.
I was addicted to politics for years and I almost posted a political comment on this thread. I feel good that I was able to show some restraint, my sponser for my 12-step program would be proud.
Agree 100% with everything you just said
Well just think, the first lie of his 2nd term has already been committed. He swore to defend the constitution
We need a candidate that will stand up for the issues he says he stands for. Someone who will not back down and who will accept that the liberal media and almost half of America will disagree with him.. It's time for the republican party to circle the wagons around a candidate and not back down or shy away from someone when their latest hiccup gets spread across social media.
At least those are my thoughts.
"Obstacles do not exist to be surrendered to, but only to be broken"
This thread is funny. The GOP lost because of their lack of ground game and lack of using social media. They also took a hit on the far right view of social issues. The GOP is going to die unless they adopt a more libertarian view of gay marriage, abortion etc. Keep fiscally conservative and social moderate to left leaning and you'll have a winner.
Romney would have won if the GOP would have let him run his campaign instead of toting the fucking party line.
Hell no. The problem is the GOP is trying to look attractive to both sides. It needs to move further right and stop being wishy washy with the left. Own up to itself. Take names and do Bitches.
WASP Longhorn here.
Uh no, the GOP would have won if we can just fix our stance on immigration. Change it enough to be lenient enough and the values that the Hispanic population align with will destroy any chance that the Dems have for the next however long. It'll be a slaughter in favor of the GOP if we can change it just enough because I guarantee that Hispanics don't like abortion and other left social values due to the strong Catholic heritage.
Yep, Dems went far left and GOP chose moderate EXCEPT for the one issue that would have won the election:immigration policy.
Where are you people getting this moderate policy? The GOP didn't support gay marriage or abortion. That's not a moderate stance. As far as moving more right that's going to get us absolutely nowhere! Look at us right now! It's two bickering children that won't compromise like adults! The whole of politics is moving further away from each other when we need to be meeting in the middle!
Romneys stance on immigration favored tuition for immigrants and grant of citizenship. He also favored strenghtening the borders against further illegal crossings (much like Obama).

The GoP needs balls. Plain and simple. They didn't have them when Romney stated a true fact about the 47% of leeching Americans and they didn't have them when they agreed to a bs deal to keep us from going over the fiscal cliff. Yes it's more moderate than they should be. All the party does is try and play nice and not piss off king Obama.
While I agree with you, when the GOP had accepted a compromise for the fiscal cliff this past summer, Obama then revoked said offer when he had been reelected. I'm willing to make compromises if my president is willing to not hold my country hostage with his decisions. The GOP is being a bit more of a push over so things will get done because there's no way that the Dems are making any compromises that may favor the right, right now.
