Meh... Another rather douchy politician being accused of being a dick? As if that were anything new. lol. I never cared much for Christie... He's not all bad, but his views on education have always seemed rather clueless... Dude certainly knows how to make himself look good in comparison to other parts of our government though. He's one of very few officials I see even half-doing his job. lol My friend gets on my case whenever I say that. She keeps telling me "Don't go praising someone for doing bare minimums of what they're SUPPOSED to be doing" to which I always respond "You fail to see how little faith I have in any of these people."

Anyway, it's only his aide who is really being linked to this mess, not Christie himself... though as his aide I suppose everyone takes her as representative of him... what bull... Also, wasn't this back in like September? Why are people still all butthurt over that? The resulting roadrage should have ended by now... and holding grudges will just tire you out.:)

And the sarcastic title... I dunno... Believe me.I can understand wanting to poke fun at the guys on this forum for constantly acting as if certain people can do no wrong. I find it hilariously pathetic too... but this feels a bit... beneath you doesn't it?

Well we just found out now that the "closures" were retribution.

I thought it was beneath him or even the aide to do something as petty as punishing the citizens because a mayor didn't endorse him even though he was never in danger of losing the election.

Yeah, I have no real faith in politicians... they easily fall into really petty squabbles like the rest of us. We try to put them on airs, since they're supposed to be leaders, but it's not really surprising to me when stuff like this happens. Everyone has a time when they revert back to the maturity of a 5 year-old for a while... I know I certainly do.:3... not that I condone his actions, but I'm just not so shocked or repulsed... It's not like he cut funding, or caused MASSIVE physical, or financial damage. Just caused a day full of road rage, and relatively minor losses for the companies and businesses who's staff and customers were caught up in it. One bad day shouldn't kill anyone. lol maybe I AM desensitized.

Though to be fair it was 4 days and the real question is was anyone really harmed? How late was the ambulance because of traffic problems? Etc. anyway with the Hoboken extortion for sandy funds is a bit more damaging. Not just under handed politics, if they find evidence someone is going to jail.

oh it was 4 days? I thought it was just for a day or two...Meh... On a major bridge I can see the aggravation... I was annoyed during those months that the bridge was out on JFK Way, since I use that road for a lot of things.. and that didn't even cause major traffic jams... I just had to take extra 3-5 minutes to get wherever I needed to go. Luckily Willingboro's set up so that you can take like 5 different routes to get to each place. I'd be kinda surprised if the only route an ambulance can take would involve that bridge. You never know when there's going to be an issue with a road, and when a bridge is out, that can last a while. A single bridge shouldn't be so crucial like that. I can see the traffic jam, since that's everyone's go-to route in and out of town, but it seriously can't be the ONLY route... EMT should be familiar with every possible route, or at least of a REALLY good gps...Though I can see the problem when an ambulance has to take a slightly longer side route during a situation in which minutes could be crucial.

It's the George Washington bridge. It's like one of the busiest bridges in the world.

I know... That shouldn't mean there aren't alternate routes... That's just the most convenient one. To not have any alternates just sounds like poor planning to me.
