in case anyone might have missed it. Earlier this week Governor Christie announced that he had created a political PAC in order to explore raise funds for a potential presidential run in 2016.
I know a lot of time and energy goes into campaign messaging and choosing a name for a political PAC is no different. A campaign wants to make sure that the message sent to potential campaign donors and those that vote in the primaries reflects a clear vision of what the candidate wishes to convey. In Chris Christie's case it's his tough guy Jersey persona and perceived leaderships skills as compared to that of President Obama's.
Chris Christie named his new PAC: LEADERSHIPMATTERSFORAMERICA.Org
On the surface it's not such a bad name, it conveys a notion of strength for the candidate and the vision of an America that has been lead down the wrong path by a president who has been weak leader in both foreign and domestic policy (neither of which has been the case however).
There is a problem though, Christie hasn't been a very good governor. As stated above, his popularity is all based on his tough guy, Jersey attitude, not his governing or leadership skills. That is why pretending that Chris Christie is qualified to be president makes a lot of us want to laugh.
Sort of like the acronym for his PAC does.
