BOSTON — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie laid out his ideas for saving the Republican Party at a gathering of the Republican National Committee on Thursday, in remarks that offered sharp criticism of rival Republicans and a window into his own potential 2016 platform.
The argument for Christie is the same argument one can make for Democrats: More statism, more nannying, more tyranny. But the Democrats already have those arguments cornered.
So why Christie?
Answer: There is no answer. There is no reason to pick him over a Democrat candidate. He can’t win. And if the Ruling Party GOP faction manages to get him nominated, he won’t win.
