The happier most conservatives should be. Chris Christie is not anyone I would ever vote for. I'd happily vote for Donald Trump before Christie. Christie reminds me of John McCain, but without the charm. To me, he comes off as a two bit school yard bully hypocrite who will willingly throw most conservatives under the bus in order to suck up to the leftwing party machine. Sure, there's just enough of the radical in the Democrats to keep him a Republican - for now. And he's clearly betting that by kissing up to the MSM/Democrat narratives of conservatives being infested by stupid tin hat hayseeds, they might push him to the front of the pack in 2024.
Nonetheless, I would never vote for a man who tells government workers asking for raises that every penny is needed so suck on it ... excuse me, the State's helicopter is here to fly me to my son's games. That level of elitism sucks I don't care which party is doing it. And spare me the lame excuses. If this is the type of person Republicans, much less conservatives, end up voting for, they'll deserve everything they get. If voting for a pseudo-progressive 'I'm not like those evil right wing types' candidate like GW Bush taught us anything, it's don't vote for candidates who do their best to promote the worst stereotypes of you in order to curry favor with those you're desperately trying to resist.
