Chris Christie doesn’t rule out running as Romney’s veep, but I don’t think he’ll get the offer
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie SAYS he would at least listen if Mitt Romney asked him to run on the Republican presidential ticket.
But the way I figure it, Romney won’t make any firm offer in that regard.
1) Christie is something of a loose cannon. He easily loses his temper and would likely be goaded into saying something he would regret.
2) Romney seems unlikely to choose a running mate who might gain more media attention than he does. That’s the same reason why he won’t pick Paul Ryan.
3) Christie’s statements on certain issues — immigration, global warming, gun control, education, Islamophobia — are sometimes at odds with right-wing orthodoxy.
