Chris Christie has problems,
but he’s still atop the 2016
GOP presidential field. For now.

Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/13/2014 5:23:58 AM

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie just endured the worst week of his five years in elected office, battered by a scandal involving traffic jams as political payback and implicating several top — and now former — aides. Make no mistake: Bridge-gate has hurt Christie and slowed, badly, the considerable momentum he built during a sweeping reelection victory in 2013. But, assuming that no other revelations emerge linking him to the closure of several lanes of traffic in Fort Lee, Christie remains the candidate — with the possible exception of former Florida governor Jeb Bush — who is best positioned to

Comments:
With at least one exception, this is a good-looking, truly qualified and capable field. But these are just the top ten for now. There will be others.

Way too early to assess who is at the top of the heap. There is a lot more ground to cover.

A writer like this shouldn´t even be allowed to even write about republican politics.Nobody ever declared Christie the front runner except the left wing media.Around the country people have a bad taste from his tongue wagging with Obama after the storm.H ewas the keynote speaker at the RNC convention and didn´t even bother to promote Romney,supposedly because he was passed over as VP. He probably thought Romney would only last one term and hand it over to him.The GOP base is shifting to the right as a natural reaction to Obama´s far left agenda and they want a serious turnaround candidate for 2016,neither Christie or Bush fits that.Simple name ID 3 years out means nothing but this writer is a sucker for it.

#3, you´re correct that hardly anyone is "declaring" Christie a front-runner, but the few polls that have been taken do show it. You and I know it´s all just talk this early. A look back at any poll three years before previous presidential elections rarely indicate the guy who finally lands the nomination. It´s simply fun to discuss.

Christie lost when he embraced Obama.

I hate this type of reporting. It is all a media creation. There is no measurable way to conclude that Christie is "on top!" And, the polls now only record name recognition, not support. But, this is what the media does. Way to early they begin to paint a picture that a certain candidate has strong support, which builds on itself until, by the time the real contest begins, many are conditioned to vote for the candidate simply because he/she is perceived to be THE ONE and they want to say they voted for the winner, all the while they really preferred someone else, and low and behold, we´re stuck with someone the majority really didn´t want and he/she goes on to loose, but we seem to fall for it every time!

Wait, wait. Hold everything. Chris Christie is only the "front runner" right now, for one reason:

The press has decided that he´s the front-runner among the Centrist-Lite Republicans. They like his story and his persona, and (beware) they know there will be a lot of meaty stories to cover about him, including all kinds of corruption accusations. They WANT Christie (the media).

Meanwhile, among Conservative-leaning Republicans, the field is wide open still, and we are very hungry for a good candidate. As soon as we start to coalesce around the best Non-Christie choice, that candidate will be the front runner. I´d place a bet on that, if I still gambled.

If the GOP had any brains they´d do a last-minute bait and switch. The front runner will be mercilessly hammered even if they used to be the liberals´ favorite GOP (a la McCain, Romney). As far as Christie goes, the Nixon saga proved that if you can´t control your loose cannons, you´re finished, unless you´re a Democrat, in which case there is no such thing as a loose cannon. Taking a lesson from the left, Christie should have promoted the traffic snarlers while launching a five-year-long internal investigation.

From manicures to motorcycles, four Little League crooks in three states used team funds for more than baseballs, bats and celebratory ice cream cones.

Eco-extremists can often be heard expressing their frustration that more people don’t take their climate change alarm-mongering more seriously. I realize this is just one guy, but… that’s partially because of moments like this. So brilliant. Labour peer Viscount Simon, 73, raised concerns about the “smelly emissions” resulting from the UK’s unusually high consumption of baked beans. He put energy and climate change minister Baroness Verma on the spot during the government’s daily question session in the upper chamber. … Lord Simon said: “In a programme some months ago on the BBC it was stated that this country has the

From 1964 to 1968, close to 34,000 Americans died in South Vietnam. We will never know how many Vietnamese women, men, and children perished during those years, but the total, according to most estimates, was at least one million. Among the dead were tens of thousands of civilians—blown apart by explosives dropped from planes, burned to death by napalm, or gunned down by U.S. troops whose commanders told them that, in a village considered loyal to the Vietcong, they should “kill anything that we see and anything that moved.” Their commander-in-chief was Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Ukraine: Special Forces Sent to Eastern City

KIEV, Ukraine -- Ukrainian special forces were deployed Sunday to an eastern city where armed pro-Russia men seized a police headquarters and the Security Service office, the interior minister said. Arsen Avakov wrote on his Facebook page that the "separatists" who seized the buildings in Slovyansk had opened fire on the approaching troops. This claim could not immediately be confirmed. The unrest in Slovyansk and the nearby major industrial city Donetsk were the latest shows of spiraling anger in eastern Ukraine, which has a large Russian-speaking population and was also the support base for Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian president ousted in February

It was the best of hugs; it was the worst of hugs. Or so the description might have gone had Charlie Crist labored a bit longer on his new memoir, in which the erstwhile governor of Florida—who is now campaigning for the job again—relives the fateful embrace with President Obama that he claims sunk his political fortunes in 2009. Rather than try for style, Crist renders the moment with the racy, staccato gusto that one might expect from a pulpy romance. “We shook hands. The new president leaned forward and gave me a hug. Reach. Pull. Release.” A hundred or

The collision Thursday evening killed both drivers, five students and three chaperones, said Lt. Bill Carpenter with the California Highway Patrol.

Rolling Stone’s Constitution cover is in need of an amendment. The cover of the storied rock magazine’s latest issue features a naked Julia Louis-Dreyfus with a faulty U.S. Constitution inked on her back. Just above her derriere sits the signature of one of the nation’s most prominent Founding Fathers, John Hancock. There’s only one problem, however: John Hancock didn’t sign the U.S. Constitution. Hancock, president of the Second Continental Congress, actually signed the Declaration of Independence. His autograph on that document is so stylish and large, in fact, that it inspired the use of his full name as a synonym for

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation.
