So Governor Chris Christie is apparently the largest, most popular governor ever. Even a majority of Democrats like him. And you’d think he’d be unpopular with how brash he is with yelling at teachers in town halls and how there’s never any bacon in the cafeteria because he always gets there first. But I guess people respect how honest and forthright he is and how much he enjoys bacon.
So what’s next for Chris Christie? The presidency? Food critic? Eat an entire roast pig in one sitting? He probably has a lot of options, though many Republicans are wary of how leftward he can sometimes be and how he went on and on about how great Obama was after hurricane Sandy hit and Obama visited New Jersey and gave the governor a plate of fried cheese. Still, come 2016, it will be hard to argue with such popularity, and Chris Christie is a budget crusader, often expressing very conservative views on spending such as, “Every dollar cut from government is a dollar that can better be spent at Krispy Kreme.”
So, even if you don’t like him, get used to lots of talk of Christie for 2016. As he always says, “Nom nom nom.”
