New York Post Slams Christie - My9 New Jersey

New York Post Slams Christie

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

The New York Post wrote an article called “‘Bizarre Behavior’ Could Be Risk To Christie White House Run”. The bizarre behavior they are referring to is the fact that he hasn’t voiced his support of a potential Republican candidate to run against NY Governor Cuomo.

Darryl Isherwood, NJ.com Senior Political Reporter, says that anything that Christie is doing right now isn’t bizarre behavior. Everything the governor is doing won’t hurt his potential presidential run. “I can’t see this derailing any 2016 effort. He’s got 36 governors’ races in the coming year that he’s going to be responsible for. So he’s going to be all over the country, ya know, I have no doubt that he’s going to play that, however it needs to be played,” Isherwood said.

In a Star Ledger editorial, Christie’s second term was called a dud. Many people believe that his attention is not on New Jersey, but on the nation.

Isherwood doesn’t see this as a problem for Christie at all, saying that the governor will simply have to walk a fine line. “He’s going to have to try to walk that line everywhere he goes just in terms of these articles. Everything’s now going to be looked at through that prism of a presidential run,” he said.

Everything that Christie does now will be looked at as a play towards becoming president. For example if he opposes gun control, articles will say he’s trying to appease the conservatives. If he supports gay marriage, the articles may say he isn’t far right enough for some conservative states.

Isherwood says that this is going to be a tough road for Christie to walk. “He has done it so far, and he’s done it fairly effectively,” he said.
