Chris Christie gets another high-profile endorsement: MSNBC’s Chris Matthews

Going from being the darling of conservative commentator Ann Coulter to winning the affection of HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher is quite a feat. But for Chris Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey, praise from Democrats is becoming a regular thing.

On Wednesday’s broadcast of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, “Hardball” host Chris Matthews, author of “Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero,” had some kind words for the popular Christie.

“Well, the man has style,” Matthews said. “And I think most people in New Jersey would say, as Peggy Noonan said in her column right before the election, he will be popular in New Jersey. He won’t be so popular in Republican Party circles because he did seem to help the president there a bit. Although Nate Silver and others don’t think it was the reason he won or anything.”

“But I do think he has style. And I know in Philadelphia where I keep in touch, and South Jersey, they love him. Regular people in my family and they’re very regular people —they like him because that ‘at-ey-tude’ — as we say in Philly, we pronounce it that way — ‘at-ey-tude.’”

    The left started propping up McCain early on, and Romney after that only to destroy them later. They are just laying the ground work for 2016. And my guess is that the people will fall for it again unless we can gain ground in delivering our own message. As long as the left presents our message for us, we will keep losing.

    Don’t believe the hype, Chrispie. You even think about running for president, the media will be on you like hyenas on a wounded rhino. And Coulter, bless her heart, obviously has a thing for moderate GOP guvs from NE blue States.

    The media will say things like “He is the only hope for the GOP…” until he gets Nominated, then they will be on him like hyenas on a wounded rhino.

    The left will pump up Christie(if that’s possible) so they can destroy him later. I’ve got an idea kids. Next time let’s not pick a rhino.

    Chrisee on Christee, or Christee on Chrisee. What a revolting thought. Am I that sick? Greyscape, Can you imagine a umongus seal banging a French poodle?

    I know you’ve been around, but I want you to imagine a little French poodle trying to mount a huge slippery seal.

    I watched slippery Christie on the beach with Sly. It was sickening.

    I think I may have gotten a bad hit from my crutch/supplier.

    This is all so, so, well, revulsion comes to mind.
    I hate them all right now.
    There are too things that I despise.
    One’s politicians,
    The other is flys.
    One eats shit,
    The other tells lies.
    The more I see Politicians,
    The more I like flys.

    Christie is toast in the next NJ election (the people will have gotten over their temporary flirtation with conservatism and elect some lib) and if he tries to go in 2016 he’ll be torched by the conservative GOP members for his antics with Obama. Jeb Bush will never get the nomination as the Bush family has left a bad taste in too many conservatives mouths.
