Chris Christie: Still Not Running for President

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey gave a speech last night at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, outlining his positions on domestic and international policy. The enthusiastic audience repeatedly implored Christie to run for president, though the governor avoided the question. Those close to Christie say he is "reconsidering" whether to run, according to The New York Times.

Anna Sale, reporter for WNYC’s politics website, It’s a Free Country, and Ron Christie, Republican political strategist, CEO of Christie Strategies, and former special assistant to President George W. Bush, analyze whether Christie is in or out of the 2012 race.

Maybe Governor Christie's speech wasn't so much about whether he is running for president or not but more that Washington is impotent and the states need to have the courage to go against Washington and solve their own problems. If Governor Christie were to go to Washington, he would be stifled and rendered totally useless.

I think the Justice is right on about the importance of civic education for youth. Does he know of anyone or organization who he thinks is doing a really terrific job of this?
