This article in the National Review makes it clear that the Republican Establishment and big money folks are lining up behind Chris Christie in 2016.
Yes, yes, it is absolutely disgusting that we are discussing 2016 in 2013.
Still, I am very interested in readers’ opinions: how different do you think a Chris Christie presidency would be from a Hillary Clinton presidency?
I see very little difference but am willing to be convinced otherwise. Christie might support a slightly smaller budget, but he will not make any significant cuts. He will support a money-printing Federal Reserve (just like Hillary). He doesn’t care about NSA spying (just like Hillary). He seems to be a Rudy Giuliani-type foreign policy hawk (just like Hillary). Is there any evidence he would support more conservative federal judges? (Perhaps). Is there any doubt he would mostly cave on social issues? (No doubt in my mind).
Personally, I see about a 3 percent difference between Christie and Hillary Clinton. Convince me I am wrong.
And if I am not wrong, why should any conservative/libertarian types support Christie?
