Is Barack’s reelection campaign looking for Chris Christie’s girth certificate?

Christie keeps saying he’s not running for president. Sounds like Barry and friends aren’t so sure. NY Post:

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.

Whoops!

Christie spokesman Mike DuHaime said, “This is just wishful thinking . . . He is not running, and he is not cracking the door open even a little bit.”

But, DuHaime said, the efforts of the Obama camp are flattering.

And rightly so. Although Christie had better hope they don’t catch any evidence of past drug use. Or long-term association with domestic terrorists and other America-haters. Or an openly stated desire to destroy private industries. Or anything else that would be unseemly in a prospective president. After all, you can only be a hypocrite if you have standards.
