    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.

    Don't worry your purty li'l head too much, Twinkletoes.....no Republican is going to win in 2012. Matter of fact, you won't even keep the House.

    If you think that way, you will be really surprised and disappointed. In your case, I'll be nice and not gloat, but for a few of the other gems here ....

    How will we be able to make JP eat his words?

    It's like when he was complacent about Prop8 never passing, then he went silent.icon_lol.gif

    Keep telling yourself that. Do you all chant that in the conservative tree house?

    My favorite part of the "story" is when they say "what they call 'opposition research'" as if the NY Post and all of Murdoch's media properties weren't a 24/7 opposition research machine. Priceless.

    You seem pretty happy that you lost your chance at equality.

    I lost nothing. But at the same time I am a strong believer in democracy, and someone had to loose in that referendum, we can't always get our way. But after the years of hatful abuse I have received from JP, his silance was golden.

    But it did not come as a shock to me because I was one of the people trying to warn the complacent, not to count their eggs before they hatch, and got abused for being right.

    Ironies galore. If the rest of the press weren't completely in the tank against conservatives (not necessarily for Democrats - though overwhelmingly favorable of this current administration), your constant "whining" might carry some weight. What is particularly interesting in this case is that they wanted to do the research under the radar.

    Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

    The Sunday morning shows in the US alone are a perfect example that puts the lie to this idea that the corporate media is in the "tank" for Obama. Meet the Press alone has had Newt Gingrich on it more times than Nancy Pelosi during the time she was speaker.

    Studies have been done that demonstrate that conservatives appears more often on television than progressives and Republicans more than Democrats. That's not a matter for debate. It's math. So educate yourself before making spurious and unsupportable claims.

    Further, opposition research is always done "under the radar". Not only is that not a story of any kind, but as we type all the Republican candidates are engaged in opposition research against Obama and the other primary candidates in their own party. It's total SOP but as with everything Obama does, the Murdoch media choir tries very hard to paint it as "weird" and "exotic", all the while continuing the racist dog whistles that have characterized all the attacks on Obama since his election.

    Instead of reading your left wing screeds, I'd like to introduce you to the reality that journalists overwhelmingly identify themselves as left of centre rather than to the right. Fox/Murdoch have found "power" because of the underlying views that have been underrepresentated and the biases that include underreporting of whatever is deemed "unfavorable" over time.
