For Chris Christie, lane closures at N.J. bridge attract scrutiny if not scandal

Dec 17, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Washington Post

The issue at hand is small, even for local politics: The sudden closure, over four days, of a pair of access lanes from Fort Lee, N.J., onto the George Washington Bridge into New York.

"The issue at hand is small, even for local politics" (as the article states) but for some this "small issue" feeds into the narrative that Christie is a bully, corrupt and is easily slighted.

Probably took the extra lane to get Christie's butt over the bridge, along with his ego.

Ha..... this sound similar to the BS you were spewing during the Oil Spill, then Benghazi and the Bush NSA program.

Ya keep mumbling the same delusional nonsense.

These fright wing guys are trying to figure out whether a faux scandal over the color of our presidents socks will be enough scandal for fux. I suggest the name of this scandal should be Socksgate.

Faux scandals'???
Dear, the questions have not been answered about the bridge closure - unless you suck up the "traffic study" propaganda. Deflecting onto Bush's ranch, and/or this president and/or two resignations do not answer the questions. I don't believe wannabe president Christie would be so irresponsible, petty, vindictive and stupid to instigate the closure but he seems to have quite a reputation which has continued this "scandal".

Looks like something rubbed off on Christie during the "Sandy Dry Hump" he gave Obama right before the last election. He even sounds like his hero - "I didn't know" "I was unaware" "My staff misled me". Just what the country needs - another inept and unaware self promoter who wants to be president. Got one of those already - what a marvelous disaster that has been.

Shirley, you can't be so obtuse as to believe the poster wasn't being sarcastic, pointing to the very basis of argument leading to your whole stagnant political outlook.

NPR was promising the blame Bush for the New Orleans destruction long before Katrina ever made landfall. You guys have been counting chads ever since trying to dismantle the Constitution in 2000 in Florida. It was your people claiming Bush blew up the levees and your people starting all the conspiracy theories about 9/11. Your people always claim a Rush listener to be possible shooter at mass shootings, yet it is always your people ending up being the shooters. Your people are the drug pushers. Your people are the murderers, rapists and "knockout" game perps. Your people are the ones buying votes and having false voter registrations. Your people are making fraudulent claims about global warming.

It's all very lopsided and you should start to wake up.

The joisy butterball is going to find out that only obumbles can get away with rhe 'make it hurt' strategy followed by the 'my staff did it, I knew nothing, I learned it from the news' lies. The liberals gave odumbo a pass on all his 'I dunno' lies, but christy will get roasted by them. Priceless karma for a repub obama synchopant.
