I found myself wondering last week what the optics of it all would have been if Christie had run, beaten out Mitt, and was the Republican nominee: How do the do those walking tours as less-that-a-week-to-go opponents? Or, how do they NOT do them?

It would have been, to say the least, "interesting".

I call bullshit on this part: "the raw emotion that makes Christie so popular on TV and on the trail, fearing it might be a liability in the West Wing"

No way did Mitt even once think of what it would be like to actually govern. Winning whatever moment they were in the campaign is it. Thus the Etch-a-Sketch and the ever-changing lies.

If they thought Christie would help them win, he'd have been the VP choice.

Though if he'd have helped them win but upstaged Mitt during the campaign, THAT Mitt would have vetoed (remember Mitt and the RYAN chant? he got all pissy and made the crowd do Romney/Ryan). But no way did actual effectiveness in the act of governing ever ever ever come up even once.

Looking at the mud slung towards Christie, something about when you point a finger at someone you have 3 fingers pointing to yourself.

And I am by no means a Christie supporter. Wonder what the folks in NJ who are getting help in quickly recovering think about those giving anti-Christie statements.
