It's pretty bad when every Republican seems to be on edge, hoping that Chris Christie is going to run. The Governor of New Jersey now for just 2 years, supporters of the Governor expect him to step away as Governor and run for the President of the United States. What does that say for the 'already contenders' for the nomination for the Republican candidate for President? What it means is that the Republican party, or the voters of the party are not satisfied with their present candidates. Mitt Romney must be getting sick of the late comers as candidates that run against him. He and Michelle Bachmann easily had the lead amongst the party, but as soon as Rick Perry came on board to run, Rick Perry numbers dropped significantly. For the last 3 weeks or so, Mitt Romney ran in front, and was favored. But with his performance in Florida during the last debate, it appears as if the main Republican support for Rick Perry has dwindled. Obviously not a great debater, he may be following the footsteps of George W. Bush. Bush constantly stumbled in his speeches, and portrayed the prior president as stupid and ignorant.
Everyone except Chris Christie believes that he will run. He has previously stated that he would not run for president as he is not ready, but the Republican clan seems to think that they know better than him. Still at the end of the day, I'm feeling pretty confident that Christie will not run.
