Team Obama Digging Up Dirt on Chris Christie


New Jersey Governor Chris Christie swears he’s not running for president, but that hasn’t stopped Team Obama from digging up dirt on the man, no doubt to prepare for a little mud slinging should Christie have a change of heart.

President Obama’s re-election campaign is trying to dig up dirt in the Garden State.

Despite New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s repeated pronouncements that he will not seek the GOP presidential nomination, Obama operatives are compiling a dossier of what they call “opposition research” — material that could be used to damage Christie if he changes his mind, The Post has learned.

The Obama campaign is trying to keep its efforts from public view, concerned they would only elevate Christie’s already impressive standing within the Republican Party, sources said.

The operatives have chosen not to dispatch their own people to New Jersey, but instead are talking to people there and in New York who know Christie from his time in the governor’s office, as a gubernatorial candidate and as US attorney.

Stacy wonders if Obama’s smear machine has anything to do with Mitch Daniels bowing out of the race. I wouldn’t be surprised. Whatever dirt gets dug up on Republican candidates will be gleefully reported by the media, while they continue to ignore the skeletons in the Democrats’ closets.
