* In the News: Gov. Chris Christie's (R) trips on a plane owned by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
Then there was a measles outbreak in the United States. Christie was in London, on a trade mission. He was asked about vaccinations.
Bloomberg View reported that "He said his four kids were vaccinated, but that "that parents need to have some measure of choice in things as well. So that’s the balance that the government has to decide." That laissez-faire approach plays well with the keep your hands off my guns, my textbooks and my kids constituency he may need for the Iowa caucuses, as well as some New Age liberals he'll never get, but not necessarily with the 99 percent of us who thought the disease had been eradicated in the U.S. Christie’s office was soon out with a correction, saying there was “no question kids should be vaccinated.”"
I asked some of my friends if Iowa Republicans really do not believe in mandated vaccination and discovered that most think that's just bull.
When reporters tried to ask Christie some more questions he snarked back at them "... what part of no questions don’t you understand?!”
The 2016 caucuses are already providing the ammunition for weeding out potential contenders.
