    ..... Calls Marco Rubio ‘Desperate’

    "Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey endorsed Donald J. Trump on Friday, a major turn in a wild race and one that gives the New York businessman a major boost as he heads into the pivotal “Super Tuesday” contests....."

    Chris Christie's endorsement is a "major boost" in the southern states holding Super Tuesday primaries? Wow, that would be news, if it were true.

    Yea, I guess so, especially since Trump already dominates in the south...

    IMO, he dislikes Rubio just that much.

    I'm trying to think of any Christie supporters that I may have met, but I can't think of any.

    If Trump wins NC, and it looks like he will, it will be in spite of any Christie endorsement.

    All of you have it wrong. Its Krispy Kream Christie. There is no doubt in my mind he is being set up to be President Tramp's Secretary of Transportation.

    If Krispy Kream Christie jumped on the Trump bandwagon, I would think there would be musical instruments scattered over a ten mile radius.

    Frankly, if you're gonna throw dirt at someone, it doesn't mean much to turn around and endorse them after they have repeatedly kicked your butt.

    The bully got beaten by Rubio so now he attempts to take another jamb at Rubio by teaming up with a second bully. Im not sure why the talking heads think this is a BIG endorsement when Christie finished about dead last when he attempted to be President. Hey look! The candidate that could not get any further than New Hampshire is endorsing someone, so what!

    Precisely. The timing of the endorsement after Thursday night's disastrous debate performance by Trump was meant to steal the media coverage from Rubio's great debate performance. That strategy largely succeeded for Trump.

    However, if Trump thinks the endorsement of a northeastern RINO is going to help him get votes in the conservative southern states on Super Tuesday, he is badly mistaken.

    I think Christie sealed his fate of ever being a credible candidate for President in the future by endorsing Trump which is obviously a self serving move and not a move to help the American people. Christie spouted off over and over that a governor is the best qualified for POTUS so why didn't he endorse Kasich who is obviously a well qualified governor.

    Christie is angling for a job in a Trump administration, likely attorney general.

    I really like Kasich except for him being such an overt interventionist. I believe he's cool headed and experienced enough to be an excellent POTUS if he weren't such a hawk.

    Yeah, I could vote for Kasich. All of my public sector union family in Ohio hates him, so he must be good.

    I don't want Christie in the Oval Office, but he might be fine as Attorney General.

    So Trump gets whipped in Utah on Tuesday night and in order to take the focus of the news off of that he puts out attack tweets against Cruz's wife. See the pattern? Trump loses. He pouts. He creates fake news to take the focus off his loss and back onto himself.
