Good on him for called out the xenophobic RWNJs, but you know he'll catch hell from the TPGOP, from Rush on down.

Well, it's New Jersey, not Texas. The Republicans here and in the Northeast in general tend to be more moderate.

Props to Christie.

It is one thing he did correctly. I am still miffed at him for putting NJN out of business.

Makes me wish Christie was in the race and debating this issue with Cain. Christie would eat him alive.

It's about time a prominent national Republican call out this crap. Not a fan of Christie's but he strikes me as the kind of guy who won't back down even though he'll get all kinds of crap for calling out the bigots for what they are.

Christie's been particularly repugnant on many issues, but I'm glad in this instance he stuck to the facts and aired his disdain for those that are chasing their tails and shrieking about Muslims and Sharia laws overtaking the country.

Now, if he'd address the very real push for a Christian theocracy that is going on every.single.day.

Everyone: I agree that Christie is far from perfect, and he's done some stuff that I really dislike, but after the stress of the past couple of years of non-stop hysterical screeching about what a sinister threat Muslims are to America, it's a HUGE relief to finally see someone on the right stand up and say, "Enough already—this is a bunch of crap!" in defense of a fellow American Muslim who has gotten slimed for no reason except his religion.

That Gov. Christie did so on camera over the course of 4+ minutes means it's something he can't walk back later and say he "misspoke" about (like it would be if he'd only said a sentence or two).

Um, I wouldn't go so far as to say he can't walk it back. They seem to be able to walk back nearly anything (look at Gingrich). I just hope he doesn't.

I wonder what Mr. Limbaugh and freaks like Geller will have to say about it - that it was "taken out of context" or it doesn't address the "larger threat"?

re: #9 theheat

Yeah, Gingrich, ugh. Attempting to walk it back after defending the judge would be....it would be worse than if he's joined in the initial sliming.

He may not be high profile enough yet for Limbaugh to attack him. He already got pretty savagely smeared by the freakshow hate bloggers back in January when he made the appointment, so I'm not sure what else they can say.

I'm kinda beginning to wish I could just go hibernate until November 5. 2012. Not that it would do much good as there no longer seem to be any "in between elections" breaks in campaigning. *sigh*
