The scandal—especially damaging details such as the nonchalant way his aides mocked a local mayor's pleas for help—threaten to transform Christie's image into something else entirely: a dissembling bully. It's not a new concept; The New York Times suggested as much just last month. But those perceptions were largely confined to critics during his first term and after 22-point reelection romp in November.
Not anymore.
"His political reputation risks falling on the other side of the knife point," one senior GOP strategist said. "A reputation for being a tough-talking, no-nonsense governor is now at risk of turning into a thin-skinned politician who exacts retribution on people for even the smallest slights."

so i would think the tea party would start to like the guy.
If you remember correctly: Christie was at CPAC one year, and never asked back. Why you ask??? because he is not a conservative. Now what about Hillary Rodman Clinton?

I think its funny how the abuse of power by his administration is something we should all agree upon. I haven't seen anyone defend Christie, but you'd never know that listening to the left.
what abuse of power are you referring to?

I wonder if Christie has gotten that "thank you" card from Obama yet. Finally, a government scandal that Obama is not involved in.

The Republican tent keeps getting smaller, literally and figuratively. Now its just old skinny white men.
She used to go around describing herself as a "petite, white, female hymie". I would say she has a self-image problem which causes her to obsess about other people weight.

"As for Christie’s claim that he knew nothing about what his aides and appointees had done until this week, it strains credulity. He must have known what his people were doing, or he must have learned about it at some point in the last few months."
Why hasn't Obama been held to this standard?
maybe he read it in a newspaper.

Well, the facts of history prove this.
How about you prove it to yourself. Create a time line, and use your patriotic war map you used to follow the action of US forces in Afghanistan and put pins in all the locations where the US Armed Forces were in combat against the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
If you noticed, all the pins were in the mountains until Obama was named president.
Identify the time when the request for the surge was made.
Then, identify the tiime when Obama began his dither period.
Then identify the time when all US forces ceased combat operations in the mountains and retreated to the population centers.
Then identify the time when Obama ended his dither period and sent just a little over half of the requested surge force to Afghanistan.
Then remove all the pins from your map (that are only in the mountains up to when Obama ordered all combat cease and all US forces to retreat to the population centers).
Then add the pins to the map of all combat after Obama ordered US forces to retreat.
Then add pins to the map to identify the bombings of villages and cities that began to occur after Obama was named president.
Now, you tell all of us here the difference in locations of places of combat.
.... got you. You just got caught denying actual history.
For bonus points, give us the date Obama promised the Taliban would be part of the future government of Afghanistan.
For additional bonus points, give us the date Obama gave the Taliban "safe passage" throughout Afghanistan.
You're an ignorant dupe.
Yes, I believe the facts of history. Here it is again for your convenient reference:
Recalling the events of that time, there was a request for surge troops which Obama dithered, then sent a little more than half of what was requested. At that same time, Obama ordered all combat in the mountains where Al Qaeda and the Taliban were holed up in caves cease, and all US forces to retreat to the population centers. Al Qaeda and the Taliban merely came out of the caves and followed Obama's retreat to re-insert themselves into the populations Bush had separated them from. Then, Obama gives the Taliban "safe passage" throughout Afghanistan. As a result, today, Al Qaeda and the Taliban are bombing every village and city throughout Afghanistan.
The intent was to sabotage the war against the Islamist terrorists in Afghanistan.
Today, as we speak, the Armed Forces of the United States are training Al Qaeda terrorists on a US military base in Jordan, and Al Qaeda has grown to be bigger and stronger than it had ever been in its history, so much they can invade Syria and fight a full-scale war with the Syrian army.
Obama surrendered to the Islamist terrorists, and is now using the Armed Forces of the United States to fight to force the Islamist agenda on the objecting world.
Only an idiot would think Obama being named president and Al Qaeda's resurgence aren't connected.
no the facts do not support your silly rewriting of history. you have proven your self to post outlandish bullshit adn then run from it time and time again...this is another one of those times...

to prove it even once more let's try this. show me proof of this supposed training of AQ troops in Jordan or anywhere....
i predict you will run like the little girl you are...again....

Their dilemma is that Christie is the only Republican that had a chance in 2016. Problem now is that his claim to reach across the aisle was really just to punch the Democrat over there. He really hurt his credibility with non-partisan voters looking for compromise.
He's dead in the water and the republicans are left flopping on the deck...again.

I used to watch that show quite a bit. They did an MRI on rodman's brain and showed him that the alcohol was physically altering his brain. Even that wasn't enough to get him to quit drinking.
