And if (God forbid), Cheeto gets back in - he'll throw Crisco right under the bus again.

I don't have a problem with that. The whole idea is to get your opponent off their game and get any kind of edge you can. That's politics. I don't like Christie for his policy positions and shitty attitude. People forget that his rudeness and hostility made him the darling of the GOP a decade ago. Then asshead came along and made Christie's actions seem downright friendly.

With all that said, I'm glad the Republicans are too stupid to nominate him because I think he could win. He's sane, smart and good with rhetoric.

All things that immediately disqualify you in that party.

"no more Oreos for you" it's all personal. IMO he's only running to get Trump as revenge for that remark. I doubt Christie is really that interested in being president.

right at the end that President Biden was suffering from dementia.

I couldn't freaking believe it. He is smart and could be a good leader if that darned sociopathy didn't rear its ugly head on him.

I personally think Democrats have better things to do than shitting on imperfect allies.

Most people in the anti-Trump Republican camp behaved like every other Republican for most of their political careers. That doesn't mean we don't need them.

Is that he's not an ally. Being a TFG critic != being a Democratic ally. Being a TFG critic != not a traitor thug.

He has yet to support any Democrat.

He will not support a Democrat in any race.

So he's not an ally, no matter how much he criticises another traitor thug.

If you look at history, the US allied with USSR against Nazi Germany. Was Stalin part of a pro-democratic coalition that shared our values? No, obviously not.

All the same, the US found it useful to cooperate with him to some degree, and not send bombers to blow up the Soviet lines east of Berlin.

You are using "ally" and "Democrat" interchangeably, and I disagree with that. Chris Christie is not a Democrat. That doesn't mean he isn't an ally against Trump. If Hell freezes and he wins the Republican nomination, its pretty obvious that Democrats should not vote for him over Biden. That doesn't mean we should spend our time undermining him, or Liz Cheney, or other people who are attacking MAGA from a right wing perspective. We'd all be better off if they managed to take their party back from the people who want to install Trump as our first Caesar.
