For something that has been years in the planning stages the production values were fairly amateurish with audio problems, awkward introductions, and cheat-sheets on the podium.  The speech itself was a rehash of prior talking points but three things were noteworthy:

1) No Springsteen or especially ‘Born To Run’ which Christie likely fantasized about entering on.

2) The 5 seconds devoted to his achievement on the pension and benefit front in New Jersey:

3) Remember he is running to be on the Republican ticket with the Republicans being one of the two major parties in this country at the moment.  What would possess him to kick off his campaign for that nomination by saying:

    Christie nominates Union County democroshit hack lawyer John Hudak to the Superior Court.

    He is the biggest asshole republican to come on board. Go out it guys, it’s yours to lose.

    AGAIN.

    If you republicans can’t win against Hillary a/k/s Shrillary, Killary and now Grillary, you deserve to lose.

    But we don’t deserve this.
