It isn't that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is a brawler' that makes him popular, but rather his willingness to not be cowed into abandoning his campaign promises. We know that fighting for the sake of fighting is silly, but even worse is backing away from doing what needs to be done because of some desire for 'civility'.
That is why Huntsman has no chance. We could care less that he speaks softly. But we care - and strongly object - that 'getting along' is a cornerstone of his agenda.
We're not looking to fight with the Democrats. Were they to support cutting the size of government and stop scaring people, we'd be happy with them. But they don't, and that is why we're determined to find someone to stand up to them.
