Maybe not fair with only one article of examples, but Christie looks and sounds like a bully. Is this what is admired nowadays in the GOP?

It's what many posters here would admire if that were an article written about a Democrat. Indeed, similar articles have been written about Pelosi, to rave reviews.

It's what I've heard many posters here recommend for Obama to do, though I find few who will admit it when I bring up that parallel here.

But on other threads, on other days, there have been many advocates for Obama to act very much like Christie was described there. To advance different issues of course, but in a manner similar to that described of Christie.

I can't argue with your facts because I've read them myself. You are especially on point in your example of Pelosi, greatly admired for her grit. However, correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think even Pelosi's public communication is actively rude or that she boasts of her put-downs.

There is no comparison. How often do you see Pelosi peeling off her jacket and pointedly trying to pick a fight with a person--one of her constituents in the audience. She wouldn't do that, and neither would most public figures. He might think it's "cute", and apparently some of his supporters do too, but those teachers, and hourly workers he's putting down and bullying in the audience also vote, and nobody likes a bully for long.

In fact, he's making fun of these people, and DARING them to ask him a question. That will not win friends or influence people. And the vast majority of American people will NOT want somebody like that in the White House. He's due for a big comeuppance.

Well what exactly was it about Ensign, Sanford, Jindal, O'Donnell, and the stripper from MA that got the media regardless of political leanings so entralled?   Per the media, these were all rising stars in the GOP destined for greatness until they demonstrated to the public and to the GOP who they really were.

The fact that the Republicans fall in love so easily, and discard their choices so easily is a testament to how shallow their bench is. This bully will also fade.

Let us see how well lowering the property tax works for NJ. A lot of our budget problems start and end with Prop 13 in CA. Since NJ had the highest property taxes in the nation, what will they do without that revenue?

Oh yes. I forgot. People on the street. People starving. Schools crumbling. That's how it works.

While I wish President Obama would push a lot harder I still do not want a one man government without any checks and balances and I certainly don't want someone who bullies and insults the people he is supposed to represent.

When I was skimming the page I thought it said Chris Christie-the latest Conservative flatuation.
That sounds about right!

I live in NJ and I don't get it. This guy blew big bucks over refusing to fill out a form correctly. Is this really the best they have?

Bush isn't president anymore. Starting two wars and giving a wealthy and unpaid tax break did that all by itself.

Quit singing Bruce Springsteen songs. Bruce is a liberal, everything you hate. Remember when he endorsed Kerry.

Interesting read - He seems like a man who knows to get a job done and make tough decisions - wish Obama would be more like this.

However, he seems to relish being rude, as if that is a display of his power and position, which I don't care for. I think I'd have a hard time respecting someone who has video cameras follow him to capture his rudeness for youtube. A very sad display.
