Chris Christie is no Fred Thompson

He claims he has no interest in a presidential run in 2012 but NJ Gov. Chris Christie toured the country this fall and raised nearly $9 million for Republican candidates. He's been doing the Sunday bobblehead circuit. He's a favorite of the far right conservatives for his "in yer face" style of political confrontation and he's attacking all their favorite targets like teacher's unions and "big government" spending. Sure smells like testing the waters to me.

He also vehemently claims his personality is too strong to take second chair, but NJ poli-watchers are speculating he has his eye on the VP slot.
“He’s Cheney with a personality,” Codey said. “He’s a hardass.”
I don't know about that. He has more of a media persona than a personality, kind of like Snooki on Jersey Shore and I think of him as more of a big ass than a hardass, and no I'm not talking about his obesity.

On the other hand, what he does share with Cheney is -- it's really not that difficult to envision him shooting someone in the face. So there's that...

Really? Keep seeing polls that say he's so popular. Surely it's not the liberals and teachers saying it.
