There’s a whole lot of teasing going on in GOP land. Chris Chistie and Former Half-Gov Temptrina McWon’tRun are in eternal Will They Or Won’t They Mode, and it’s getting older than a Marcus Bachmann corn dog joke:
NBC New York has confirmed that the Republican [Chris Christie] in his first term is now considering a run for president, after months of adamantly denying he would get into the 2012 race.
Sources tell NBC New York he’s reconsidering his past denials due to what he felt was a strong outpouring of support during appearances throughout the country this week, especially during his stop at the Reagan Presidential Library in California on Wednesday.
But it’s about to get worse. Hold on to your fat jokes, here comes HuckaFlip, who sworetogod he wouldn’t run, because the god he sworetogod to, and his own heart, told him not to:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Mike Huckabee has been approached by Republican and conservative activists unhappy with the current crop of presidential hopefuls and he is considering entering the fray, two sources who have spoken with Huckabee told Reuters.
I guess his original decision is no longer “clear and firm”:
“All the factors say go, but my heart says no. My answer is clear and firm. I will not seek the Republican nomination for president this year. I’m going to gladly continue doing what I do.”
If and when he stops doing what he does and leaves ClusterFox behind, we’ll have our answer.
It really boils down to this: The GOP is dying for a new flavor, one that won’t make them nauseous after a few tantalizing licks.
UPDATE via Taegan:
Update: A source close to Huckabee tells CBS News that “there are certainly people that have asked him to reconsider his decision, even more so lately, but at this point that is not something he is doing.”
