Chris Christie Wants White House Speculation To Stop

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. (CBS) – The political speculation surrounding New Jersey Governor Chris Christie just won’t stop. He’s now being asked about a potential Vice Presidential slot on next year’s GOP national ticket.

“How many different ways am I gonna answer this?” Christie asked reporters.

He’s made it clear he doesn’t want the job and hasn’t been asked. To be candid, no one is going to ask until they’ve got the nomination in hand. But that doesn’t stop reporters from posing the question in one form or another.

“It’s like waiting to get asked out on a date and saying “no” before the woman even asks you. It’s kind of rude and it’s never happened to me. But I live and hope, you know?”

The Governor didn’t exactly close the door on the question, though and that’s by design given his desire to confront issues like that when they have to be confronted, not just on mere press speculation.

Besides, Christie figures if he says no to VP, questions will begin to swirl about potential cabinet posts. So he’ll wait to see who the nominee is and then see if any offer is actually made.

    Mr Christine before making another decision, stop the illegals that you drive past everyday and get them out of our country, the NJ dollar is going outside the country. Every PAS and MD plate that you see an illegal driving is driving up insurance cost for heir accidents, we have to pay for their children and they send their money out of the country to get a new wife here. The bed bug situation in the US did not get here all be itself. We are being over run and we pay taxes for other that do not contribute to our economy, the state budget or even our culture for that fact. The term stupid american is true, because you are letting this happen and you drive and live with full knowledge of this everyday.
