Chris Christie declines (again) to run for president

Chris Christie ended a brief flirtation with a presidential bid in 2012 Tuesday, insisting, as has been done before, that the effort by the White House "does not feel right."

"Ultimately, what I always thought it was the right decision remains the right decision today: It's not my time," Christie said in a press conference on the afternoon of New Jersey.

The governor has formed the opposition in an attempt in 2012 did not change, but recently admitted that he had "ceased to really resonate" with the decision after being forced to re-race.

"I feel an obligation to consider seriously what people are asking me to do it," said Christie. "For me, the answer is anything but ... It never felt right to me. "

Christie's announcement would disappoint some of the major donors and activists who urged the Republican governor of New Jersey to again run for the nomination in 2012 a few questions about the viability of race Rick Perry and the lack of passion for the nomination of Mitt Romney.

What decisions are left Christie candidate? Romney seems to be a winner. His support for the moderates and people on Wall Street and Washington companies may have had great success is Christie's entered the race. Major donors, and stay on the bench, awaiting a decision from Christie, Romney could change, given the increasing doubts about Perry.

However, voters tea Conservative Party, was approached by blunt talk economy and the country's state governors serious fiscal, Christie is also interesting. Support units that Perry could change, especially if Perry inflame anger at Republican efforts to reform health care in Massachusetts Romney.

Christie's decision is good news for Jon Huntsman and Herman Cain.

While Hunter will be in single digits nationally, that figure has doubled in New Hampshire, a state that bet the whole campaign. Christie has jumped in the race, the governor of New Jersey became the leading opponent Romney in Granite State. Christie out, hunters can not maintain their momentum. It can appeal to moderates and independent as Christie.

Herman Cain will rise in the polls in recent days has made his candidacy more serious aspect than usual. Cain attract conservative voters who oppose Romney and Perry enthusiastically. If some voters waiting to go Christie, now able to Cain.

The next big question is that Republicans Christie agreed, if he supports it. The governor has come under intense courtship between the 2012 candidates, especially Romney.

In January, Christie's held a dinner for Governor Romney SA home in New Jersey. Christie later downplayed the incident, calling Romney But a "friend." May, Romney gave serious political coverage, praised Romney gave a speech in defense of health care law in Massachusetts.

Christie speculate about the role in 2012 is no more. While he may have questions about a presidential candidate, is a matter of time before he was beaten with a question about whether he is willing to serve as the final candidate's spouse.

Of course, I answer that question. Like the previous bill in June, Christie insisted that he wanted to be-No. 2-and anyone who asks that suggest he might be crazy.

"Can you imagine? The person I choose as vice president was sedated now, "Christie said on NBC's" Meet the Press "." Forget it. "

On Tuesday, Christie again insisted he did not want to be VP - "no one in America believe that my personality is more suited to number one. Two additional "do not think, however, admitted that not rule out any future work, including the White House run in 2016.
