Will Christie Run for Vice President on Romney Ticket?

The governor said he'd "listen" if Mitt Romney approached him to run for vice president.

Gov. Christopher J. Christie said he'd consider running for vice president on a Republican ticket with Mitt Romney if he's asked, according to the Huffington Post.

“If Governor Romney comes to me and wants to talk about it, I’ll always listen," Christie was quoted as saying. 

Last year, Christie mulled his own presidential run, but ultimately decided the timing wasn't right.

Christie's approval rating with New Jersey voters is stronger than ever, reaching its highest level since he took office in January 2010, according to Bloomberg News. Fifty-nine percent of voters approve of the job the governor is doing, according to a recent poll. 

If Christie chooses to seek a second term as New Jersey governor, he will be up for reelection in 2013.

Earlier this year, Christie was being pressured to run for the presidency. He consistently said that his allegiance was to the State of New Jersey and he had a job to do here and would not leave New Jersey etc. etc. etc. So what happened? He no longer feels any obligation to the State of New Jersey? He would consider being a running mate with Romney? Is that because Romney is not liked and is a bad choice of the Republicans and they need somebody who is liked to run with him? Anyway ---- I am most curious as to why Christie would abandon New Jersey for the vice presidency after all his talk about he owes the people of New Jersey.

Why? Because he's a politician. All politicians are spin doctors and liars.

To Neil Kaye's explanation of "entitlements" ----- I say AMEN. Social Security is an entitlement that we paid for in all our working years ---- an insurance policy that was "sold" to us by the USA government, for which we paid the premium out of every one of our paychecks. Then the same government "borrowed" (or stole) from the SS fund. I say "put it back".
