Christie endorses Romney

Saying former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is “the man we need to lead America,” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie jumped into the 2012 Presidential race Tuesday not as a candidate but as an endorser.

A week after he decided — once again — not to seek the nomination himself, Christie turned power broker and gave Romney an important boost in his bid to lead the GOP charge to unseat President Barack Obama in 2012.

Romney, Chrisie told a Tuesday afternoon press conference in Hanover, New Hampshire, before that evening’s GOP debate, is “the best person to be able to articulate Republican values and defeat Barack Obama. Mitt Romney is the man we need to lead America, and we need him now.”

Christie was courted heavily by social conservatives and tea party activists to run for President but his decision to stay on the sidelines gives Romney a much-needed boost with both the GOP’s right-wing base and the fatcat political donors who have waited to see what the New Jersey governor would do.

    Should read: Porkie endorses Bugs…no?

    This nation is in a heap o’ trouble by letting this continual political charade continue.

    We’re sinking as a nation folks and in dire need of emergency triage concerning the need for massive spending cuts, NOW! along with tax increases and a mandated balanced budget regardless of how painful. Congress is fiddling while “New Rome” burns. Meanwhile we have to endure this political ‘bread and circus’ ordeal leading up to another corporate implaced shill for ‘preznit’. Whether its another term for Obama or a Republican whomever, we’re doomed. These men aren’t leaders, but simply new age, corporate puppets.

    Seemingly the prophesized “End of Days” in 2012 has more truth to it than anyone can imagine. So too, try to imagine the entire world’s financial system crashing along with their ‘blown’ fiat currencies, not including concurrent mega-planetary disasters from an asteroid incoming, direct hit solar flare, gamma ray burster star closer than 6,000 light years or magnitude 10 caldera sized earthquake in the Western U.S. or Mediterranean basin.

    Too much needs addressing to save America with so little time left. : |

      “Should read: Porkie endorses Bugsā€¦no?” …extract from post

      No folks, it should read: Porky endorses Bugs…no?

      I suffered a brain fart relative to the correct spelling of a famous cartoon character. : (
