    Then use conventional weapons to kill the one's inside the borders and just mass exterminate all the other predominantly muslim countries, but for god's sake don't violate my constitutional rights.

    And as for someone who sees them self as a libertarian , I think he is a fat blow hard, who is funny at times, pragmatic and times and way off at others. It is almost like he is a human.

    Haven't seen him on the tube in awhile. How's the diet going?

    As to the question, he remind me of the old moderate republicans that are now dinosaurs. Would be a threat for the presidency if he got the nomination, but that will never happen after hugging Obama. Party has moved past him to the far right, just read the comments here.

    A socialist view of a moderate.

    And yours is a right wing extremist's myopic and disassociated viewpoint. This game is fun.

    It's funny that you expect people to still support someone who doesn't believe or stand for what they do. Why would conservatives continue to support someone who is apparently not very conservative? What exactly is so strange about that? Secondly, i dont exactly remember that many conservatives gushing over the guy, he has some likable qualities, but he wasn't like some show-stopper or something.

    Christie is for lower taxes, smaller government, and he is pro-life. I think those are some conservative values.

    Middle does not mean lukewarm with no opinion. It means deciding each issue on its own merits and not according to an ideology. It means deciding what is hard principle on which there is no compromise and what is preference allowing for flexibility (the vast majority of issues).

    When I took political science the prof complained of people having their own ideas that did not fall under a consistent ideology. I think he was wrong to demand ideology first and issues second.

    I don't think it is naiveté per se. As a libertarian, I want a strong national defense, but not be the world police. Keep the borders secure(this is one difference between my self and some libertarians). I think that to enjoy our liberties, we have to exercise our Rule of Law Constitutional roots. When there are dangerous people who could cross our borders and hamper/hinder our liberties, that becomes a problem for me.

    Have Christie's views changed? Nope. Hmmm.

    Secondly, you would be wrong. You think they let just anyone speak at conventions?

    He's a big wind bag, with an inflated ego, who stands no chance on the national stage unless perhaps he switches parties. Hes' NJ's answer to Charlie Crist.
