Is Chris Christie the only Republican not Afraid of Rush, Fox, the NRA, etc?


It seems Chris Christie is the only politician who is speaking his mind from either political party right now. But the Republicans seem to be the only party afraid of so many outspoken groups. The GOP also has to deal with Grover Norquist and his pledge against new taxes as well. The NRA is threatening all Republicans and Democrats with defeat if they vote against them. Christie seems to be the only politician who says what he feels without any regard to what any political party or outside group thinks or cares.

I'm starting to believe Chris Christie is our only way out of the mess we are in. Are we being fooled by Christie as well?

Why do you interpret this as a negative?

I think most Democratic senators who come from rural states will tell you the NRA will have nothing to do with their defeat if they vote 'yes' for an assault weapons ban.

John McCain was "independent" and a "maverick willing to 'cross the aisle'" until he got the nomination. Then he became Bush, Part II, and had to be destroyed. Of couse his crappy campaign didn't help his cause, either.

Not sure how you can say that with a straight face after the way Christie slobbered all over Obama's knob, re: Sandy relief. But then, you aren't the sharpest knife in the drawer, either, so...

Mitt Romney was left of center and he got painted as a heartless bastard who wanted to make a quick buck by selling your children and giving your wife cancer.

This. Sadly, Romney may have been left of Clinton, but once the Machine got a hold of him, right wing but job.
