The problem is more than a one-time misguided compliment of the president. I don't think aybody could honestly watch that whole fiasco and not conclude that Christie was intentionally sinking Romney's campaign. He had to know that the press would be running pictures of him and the president smiling triumphantly. Obama originally campaigned on being bipartisan, but fell woefully short. This finally gave the press the opportunity they needed to revive "Obama the Uniter" imagery.

Add in the blistering attacks of Christie on the Republican congress for forking over enough pork, his naive belief in man-made global warming and finally his apparent readiness to jump on the gun-ban bandwagon, and you can see why a lot of conservatives take issue with him.

Sarah Palin said it best: It's easy to cut spending when you are broke.

It's a safe bet that most conservative Republicans would rush to support a political leader with the following record, especially in a traditionally Democratic state:

-- Reversed a $2.2 billion deficit and brought it into balance without raising taxes, largely by reduced spending and eliminating wasteful and unaffordable programs, allowing for a projected fiscal 2014 budget surplus of $300 million.

-- Bipartisan pension and benefits reforms, saving the state $120 billion over 30 years.

-- Streamlining government by eliminating 5,200 government jobs.

-- Vetoing tax increase bills three times while cutting taxes for job creators.

-- Reforming the nation's oldest teacher...
