Rachel Maddow: Chris Christie may have just given up on the presidency

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s (R) appearance in Manahawkin may have turned the tiny Jersey Shore “census-designated place” into his presidential Waterloo, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said Thursday night.

“I’m not prepared to say definitively tonight that Chris Christie just announced he is not running for president,” Maddow said. “But, compare what he said with the way he usually talks about this thing, and it kind of seems today like Chris Christie announced he is not going to run for president in 2016.”

Christie was in the community to meet with victims of Hurricane Sandy, Maddow explained, when he said he accepted the job of running the state “for eight years, not four years” and assured the audience that “this is where I intend to spend the rest of my life.”

“That is not at all the way that Governor Chris Christie has talked recently about his immediate next few years’ plans,” Maddow pointed out. “Not at all.”
