I am really disturbed by what I have heard that Republican supporters are blaming my governor Chris Christie for Mitt Romney losing. I do not like Chris Christie at all. He is not a friend of people who are employed by the state which most of my family is. But to say that his praise of Obama's response lost the election is ridiculous. People want politicians who put politics aside to get things done. Candidate Romney couldn't have done ANYTHING for New Jersey except volunteer if he wanted or donate his personal fortune if he wanted, just like any private citizen. That Chris Christie put politics aside to put the people of NJ first, and develop a sound working relationship with Obama on this issue IS WHAT PEOPLE CLAIM THEY WANT.
I also saw an absolutely disgusting use of the n-word on Twitter and around the Internet by Romney supporters and some of them are young people. My age. How anyone my age is using the n-word nowadays. Disappointing, disgusting.
Chris Christie was the golden boy of the Republican party before Hurricane Sandy, after Ohio was declared and pundits were dissecting the party's options in the future I heard NO ONE talk about Chris Christie as a rising star anymore.
Romney lost this election because a) wrong VP choice, b) increasing extremism in his party, c) outdated views on social issues, d) lack of ability to connect with Latino voters. There is no e) Chris Christie.
Also all I can do is
at everyone complaining about the electoral college, because it was cool with them in 2000 when Bush beat Gore but lost the popular vote, plus Obama has popular vote now too, so Donald Trump this
is for you. Short memories people.
Anyway, this is my last political post, I just had to get it off my chest and the NT threads scare me
