Chris Christie for 2012....Really?
True, he says all the right things at town halls, to make Tea Partiers and arm chair Talk Radio hosts heads swoon. But the last time I looked, I couldn't find anything substantial the Governor of NJ has so far achieved. See for yourself, just Google it. Let's face facts, he still has a lot of work in own backyard to complete.
Thankfully, Chrisite seems grounded enough to understand his position and has repeatedly stated he is not interested in running. Marco Rubio, the newly minted Senator from Florida is another rising GOP star, who people seem insistent upon pushing higher, well before their time. Again, thanks to Sen. Rubio for displaying a maturity beyond his years, by downplaying such talk.
Actually I believe this is all due to the final stages of the very earliest and unseen primaries, which have been taking place. The "Pundit Primary" occurs in the 12 -18 months prior to the real campaign's beginning. It's during this time, editorial writers, talk show hosts, TV commentators and an abundant assortment of bloggers, try to figure out the field and be the first to call the eventual front runner. They also seem to suffer from an insatiable, instant gratification syndrome. They hunger endlessly to have the latest, newest and most beguiling personality be considered for the highest office, even if the resume has lowest experience.
Evidently there are far too many people, far too impatient to get this 2012 race started.
Leads to the craziest talk.
