I'm going to correct you on this one because I don't like to condone this type of reporting from either side.

According to many reports, the woman, Florence Genova, to whom the media keeps referring to was a 91 year old who had suffered a heart attack and was found unconscious by a "home health aide". Paramedics got to her in seven minutes. SEVEN MINUTES. IMO, to try and tie that death to snarled traffic is really sensationalizing a story that stands on it's own merit without that type of reporting. Just saying.

In America, when you disagree with a Conservative your choices are:
1) eat a ham and cheese sandwich
2) enter into a lively debate
3) place a paper bag with excrement on your nemesis porch and ignite
4) threaten to cut off a man's penis

The Democratic National Committee was quick to blast New Jersey Gov. Chris Chistie's (R) exhaustive press conference responding to the George Washington Bridge scandal by arguing that it was just an ego trip for him.
The statement, by DNC communications director Mo Elleithee, came just a few minutes after Christie's hour-plus long conference.
"For nearly two hours today, Chris Christie stood up and repeatedly made himself out to be the victim. He lauded himself for swift action in firing staffers for lying to him. And he argued that this was not reflective of the culture he’s created in his office.
But Chris Christie is not the victim. The people of New Jersey who trusted him are.
He didn’t take ‘swift action’. He ignored questions and responsibility for more than 120 days, until his administration was finally caught red-handed.
The fireable offense should not be that his team lied to him — it’s that they took actions that hurt the people of New Jersey.
And it’s clear that Chris Christie absolutely created and fostered a culture in his office where this type of conduct was considered appropriate.
Today’s spectacle by the Governor has left many questions still unanswered.
But there’s one thing that was crystal clear today — Chris Christie needs to focus less on his ego, and more on the people of NJ."

hey FOXbots.....'caught red-handed'
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.

Blabbermouth Schultz was eager to spread the message that the New Jersey governor had committed wrongdoing, a news drop that conveniently steered attention away from former Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ revelations a day earlier about Hillary Clinton.

Gotta love how quick the hearings started, and how the libs are upset because people are pleading the 5th.

6.6-Magnitude Earthquake Reported in Boca Boca

Florida January 8, 2014 (AP)
By The Associated Press

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 6.6-magnitude earthquake has hit the greater Boca Boca area.

There are no immediate reports of damage or injuries; however, the Atlantic Tsunami
Warning Center says there is a tsunami warning in effect.

The USGS report says the quake hit early Wednesday local time, with the epicenter 37 kilometers (23 miles) east of Lake Okeechobee and 443 kilometers (275 miles) north of Miami.

The report says the quake was at a depth was 196 kilometers (122 miles).
Boca Raton is in the "Ring of Fire," an arc of volcanoes and fault lines that originated around an ugly, large, evil woman who resides in Boca and posts on Topix all day while swilling vodka and forcing herself on a skinny, old black dude.

It will be interesting to see if the liberal networks report Christie firing those traffic jam wrongdoers as enthusiastically as they did reporting the original story and having such a heyday with it.
Potential republican candidates better be growing another layer of skin and a much stronger spine to stand up to these bozos. Time for the gloves to come off. Romney kept them on a few times too many.
Surely you don't believe that Christie was clueless as to what was going on do you? Of course he had to fire those two....there was an e-mail trail that he couldn't possibly ignore. He had no option. IMO, retaliating in such a way would be exactly what I would expect of a bully like Christie.
