We need good guys in 2014 with can-do records.
Check this out:
Republican Govs. Chris Christie, of New Jersey, and Bobby Jindal, of Louisiana, are top Republican presidential prospects. But with the party needing to defend 22 governorships next year, they cautioned members this week against looking too far ahead to the 2016 White House race.
They made their remarks at the annual Republican Governors Association meeting in Scottsdale, Ariz., where Christie told party members, “start thinking about 2016 at our own peril.”
No one generated more interest than Christie, the group’s new chairman who arrived in Arizona only two weeks after a sweeping re-election victory in Democratic-leaning New Jersey.
However, the highlight of the event was perhaps a surprise visit from George W. Bush, the last Republican to occupy the White House.
Bashing Washington dysfunction at every turn, the governors offered up their can-do records — and themselves — as a model for a party looking to return to power.
