Elections 2012 - #2859 - Chris Christie Has An Obligation to Run - American Thinker

The recent decision by Standard and Poor's to reduce the forecast of their rating of U.S. debt has forced a reevaluation of all the candidates for President now jockeying for position in the Republican field. I am well aware that Governor Chris Christie has been encouraged to consider running for President of the United States, and he has been consistent, admirably consistent in fact, in stating that he will not run. He has said that he feels an obligation to New Jersey voters to fulfill the term of office to which he was elected, and to do what he thinks is best for the people of New Jersey. Again, these are truly admirable positions, and I really respect his views on them. Please allow me to point out one fact that, while obvious, still needs to be occasionally aired out and examined. If the United States should effectively become a third world nation (and there is every indication of that actually occurring in the not too distant future) the State of New Jersey will not be exempt from that disaster. The devaluation of our currency that has resulted from out of control spending and borrowing applies to all our money. Again, the money that people put in their savings accounts in New Jersey is not specially protected. It is not worth more than the money of our fellow citizens in New Mexico, or Illinois or Oregon.

Well, Governor Christie, now it's your turn to be involved, to make one of those painful sacrifices. The potential field of possible Republican presidential candidates currently consists of "re-treads" who have run in the past -- and lost -- or do not have the personal magnetism to offset that of Barack Obama, nor have his bully pulpit, nor his command of the main stream media nor his union backed "shock troops..........Please, sir, reconsider your decision not to run for the Presidency. The nation needs you, now. Not in 2016, or 2020. Now. When the nation needs a true leader, that leader has a moral obligation to make the sacrifice and answer that need.  Read more.......  AW: Amen, Amen, Amen, truer words were never spoken, I believe he may be the only one to take on Obama, the unions and all that the Democrats may throw at the 2012 election process.
