Is It Wrong to Say that Zombie Reagan Lives?

First off, let me say that I'm a huge Reagan fan, and a growing Christie fan. Hah! I've made a joke about size. How droll!

It's just that I keep saying that it's like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie dug up and ate Ronald Reagan in some bizarre extremist right-wing ritual that let him steal the powers of the 40th President of the United States. And not that I want to sound like a diarist at Daily Kos, but I really mean it's like he stole Reagan's soul when I hear how he treats these liberalist union bosses:

Yes please. Where has that been since 1989 or so?

I love this guy! He doesn't back down from the lies that the libs and the MSM perpetuate. He calls them out and shows them where they are wrong. The best part is that he does so without getting vulgar or belligerant.

He has been up front with the complexities that he has to deal with and hasn't shied away from detailing exactly what the dems have done to screw over the state of New Jersey.

He believes that voters are smart enough to understand what's going on if someone bothers to tell them. Above all else that sets him apart from the vast majority of politicians from both sides of the aisle.

So far he is still saying he won't run for the White House. He would crush obama in 2012 if he did (and no, that wasn't a fat joke).

Experience matters. Christie is a former prosecutor from a very tough federal district with a high population density. There's a big difference between putting away Mafia bosses and drug kingpins and, oh, say, being a talk show host.

I don't see Christie as a Reagan. He doesn't have Reagan's relaxed charm and sense of humor.

Christie has a different style. I still think he's awesome, but he's awesome in an un-Reagan way.

I still see Sarah Palin as the most Reaganesque out there -- the easy charm, the perpetual optimism, the common touch, the steel underneath.

Christie... he's a different kind of guy entirely. He's a Joe Pesci.

The similarities? The ease and comfort in his skin. The ability to reduce complex issues to things the average voters can grasp. The talent to reduce his opponents to objects of ridicule (although Reagan did it with a smile; Christie wields a deadly stiletto).

In the end, Chris Christie is not Reagan II, but Christie I. And Sarah Palin is Palin I.

Christie for Secretary of Education. Secretary of Labor. Attorney General. Or, for some real, real fun, to blow the hell out of some minds that need blowing, Secretary of State or UN Ambassador.

President? I don't think so. Not just yet. But then again, it depends who else runs. He's not ideal, but he very well could be the best in the race.

I'd love to see Christie as president. Can you imagine him calling out the UN and demanding to see what the return was for our support?

Right now I can't see anyone on the horizon who cam galvanize the support without also provoking the opposition. Palin would arouse the left too much. The usual suspects are all too much in it to maintain he status quo. Not a single one of the Romney, Huckabee crowd has any credibility for reform.

Me too, till I realize he is anti 2nd Amendment and is soft on illegal immigration. His views on Cap & Tax and Obamacare are weak too.

gary gulrud:

This is about the third version I've seen and it is getting better everytime, not different just better screen play, inclusion of deleted scenes, better editing.

Yeah, it's hard to see Christie in an office beneath the top, his standup routines are as awesome as Obie's aint.

But he's proabortion, procrapntax, procareerist and NJ is going into the crapper despite his heroic efforts.

He's giving no indication that he's interested in the death by 10K cuts, and says fugeddaboutit.

Now if he actually tries to be Reagan, the Solomon of Conservative Amerikkka, taking an interest beyond NJ then maybe I'd look again.
