We told you, Save Jerseyans: Christie angst is real.
Justified or not.
I don’t expect any of this to have a major impact on 2013; it could, however, transform the 2016 playing field assuming Chris Christie ultimately decides to play for a shot at the 2016 Republican nomination.
The latest evidence? Matt Drudge is using his considerable new media clout to slam New Jersey’s GOP Governor following this week’s Saturday Night Live cameo…
A little background: Matt Drudge is a known ally of key Romney Team insiders. Given the reported deterioration of that once-close relationship and the Governor’s recent smack down of Romney’s “gifts” comment, we shouldn’t really be surprised to discover fissures opening up in the Republican establishment between Pro-Romney and Pro-Christie forces. I’m not saying Drudge’s opinions are invalid, but this is high-level national politics, folks. You need to consider everyone’s possible motivations/alliances before rendering judgment.
