Christie Endorses Romney
Well, what did you expect? A northeastern “moderate” (read: left-leaning) Republican endorsing another.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, just one week after definitively announcing he will not run for president in 2012, endorsed Mitt Romneyfor the job Tuesday afternoon.
Like I said, one RINO endorsing another. For the record, Christie is hardly a stalwart of conservatism:
- He supports a multi-state Cap & Trade scheme known as the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative and is so committed to Cap & Trade that he used funds raised from RGGI’s carbon auctions to help balance the budget; he has directed that state funds be appropriated to subsidize “green” technology ventures such as off-shore windmills;
- He has refused to join other state attorneys-general in a joint lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare while accepting federal funds for the implementation of a similar program on a statewide level;
- He is on record saying that he does not believe illegal aliens are here illegally; he has indicated that he supports amnesty for illegals; he generally favors strict gun control and he supports construction of the Ground Zero Mosque even as he condemns those who oppose it.
There’s very little surprise in Christie endorsing Romney, at least very little around CWHQ.
