Romney Could Have Let Us Keep Christie Doing His Job

It turns out that Chris Christie’s trip to Illinois to stump for GOP Presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney was not fated.  In fact, had Mitt Romney stood his ground we could have kept the Governor in his own state doing his job instead of leaving for the umpteenth time this year.

With the Illinois presidential primary expected to be a tight race, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and his backers are expected to spend millions on TV ads and other campaign costs by Tuesday’s election.

If Romney’s Illinois campaign had followed through with challenging the petitions of former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum’s delegates, the scenario could have been much different.

Not that I really want the Governor in the state, but it’d be nice if he spent some time in Trenton doing his job.

    Christie said recently he planned to go out of state campaigning for GOP candidates only on the weekends. I guess he doesn’t consider the workday hours of a Friday a time he should actually be working at his elected job (the Romney event’s at noon in Elmhurst, Illinois). Bet you couldn’t get away with that at your job.

    Illinois used to be Romney’s to lose as NBC points out. But now, once again, the message-less, uninspiring Romney has to haul in somebody to add a little drive and personality to his campaign. Mitt Romney doesn’t light anybody’s fire, so bring on the firecracker.

    I love the GOP primary so much.

    From SNL. This never gets old:

    Brief unscrubbable ad. Practice making elephant noises.

    Instead of zipping out to the Hamptons  but I see nothing wrong gaining some political capital .Christie is one of the most popular Governors we’ve had in 15 years and according to the polls people feel he’s accomplished a lot in two years …and really when was the last time this state was talking about cutting taxes
