Still Think Christie's a "Conservative"?

The Captain points to a new Christie pronouncement, which rivals or exceeds the Statism of Obozo (!)

...Christie proposed a new standard for involuntary commitment of patients who are not necessarily deemed dangerous “but whose mental illness, if untreated, could deteriorate to the point of harm"....and to require people forced to undergo mental health treatment to demonstrate “adequate medical evidence of suitability” if they want to get a firearms purchase identification card.

Wouldn't surprise me if this wacko actually gets a few votes at the Convention.  It'll be useful to keep track of who voted for him.

I suppose that in Christie's well-insulated east coast world the lefties would naturally define him as conservative and the MSM would reflect that narrative. To them he is an acceptable conservative, which is to say not very conservative at all. He's a big fish in a small bowl in New Jersey, but I really doubt that his particular brand of bullshit would play well beyond his home folks. If he ever has to produce his resume to voters west of New Jersey he's not likely to be well received.

The MSM will always trumpet Christie as the model conservative simply as a means of marginalizing true conservative candidates as radical right-wing nut jobs. He's their token conservative Republican, yet one possessing just enough closeted skeletons to be a thoroughly manageable token conservative. He'd be their dream Republican nominee... one they could get behind only to have the voters reject. Mission accomplished.
