Numerous Chris Christie corruption scandals would re-emerge if he ran for president in 2016:
Underneath all these concerned and principled “conservatives,” it seems, there’s an inner crony capitalist looking to enrich himself and his friends. It’s now Chris Christie’s turn to be revealed.
There are stories in New Jersey that are starting to make the rounds nationally, and they’re not pretty — not surprising, but not pretty.
Chris Christie didn’t become governor of New Jersey the easy way. He first had to overcome a gauntlet of scandals in which he was accused of crony capitalism, big spending, and using his government title to get himself out of legal trouble.
One of the most persistent stories that dogged Christie in his 2009 campaign was his unusual financial relationship with a top aide at his federal prosecutor office, Michele Brown. Christie lent Brown some $46,000, which he says was to help a family friend through a rough patch.
But critics argued that the move was an improper conflict of interest heading into a gubernatorial campaign since Brown was in a position to help Christie in a variety of ways. Her job included handling FOIA requests, including those from Governor Corzine’s campaign, for example.
And in one instance, she argued to colleagues in favor of wrapping up a major corruption probe before July 1, when Christie’s successor took over the US Attorney position, a move that ensured credit for the case would clearly flow to Christie. Brown resigned shortly after news of the loan broke and, according to the New York Times, she paid off Christie’s loan in October 2010.
It wasn’t the only allegation of conflict of interest that Christie fought off. The then-US Attorney testified before Congress on a series of no-bid monitoring contracts worth millions that he awarded to various law firms. One contract, worth up to $52 million, went to former Attorney General John Ashcroft, Christie’s old mentor. Another former US Attorney chosen for a monitoring contract, David Kelley, had previously investigated Christie’s brother in a stock fraud case in 2005 — he was not indicted while fifteen others were.

Chris Christie: So Many Scandals, It's Hard To Keep Track
Yesterday we learned that Governor Chris Christie - the public official who canceled a much needed rail tunnel between New York and New Jersey because it would cost taxpayers too much money - overspent on trips more than any other U.S. attorney in 2007 and 2008 when he worked for the Bush Department of Justice.
When he was the state's top federal lawman, Gov. Chris Christie spent more money than allowed by regulations more often than any other U.S. attorney in the country during 2007 and 2008, according to a report issued today.
Neither Christie nor the four other U.S. attorneys criticized was named. But MainJustice.com , an independent online news site that chronicles the goings on at the U.S. Justice Department, reported that Christie is apparently "U.S. Attorney C."
The report by the department's Inspector General's office said U.S. Attorney C "was the U.S. attorney who most often exceeded the government rate without adequate justification. The U.S. Attorney provided insufficient, inaccurate, or no justification for 14 of 23 trips (61 percent) that exceeded the government rate."
So now that U.S. Attorney C is Governor C, all of a sudden he has concerns about overspending on things like rail tunnels or school budgets, but back when he was U.S. Attorney C, he spent taxpayer money like he was Reginald Van Gleason on the town.

You'd think they'd change the name from "Fox News Poll" to "What Stupid People Think" just for accuracy. Then again, accuracy was never their priority - they had Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck on their payroll at the same time their executives were being criminally prosecuted.
And by the way, the ACA is already working. Still waiting for those Bush tax cuts to though.

GO HILLARY! YEAH BABY!!
Can anyone name someone that can beat her in the 2016 Presidential race?
Anyone at all?

Are Republicans really 'incapable' of beating Hillary Clinton in 2016?
If Hillary Rodham Clinton decides to run for president in 2016, would she be unbeatable? That’s the pronouncement of former GOP Speaker and onetime presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.
On NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday, Mr. Gingrich flatly proclaimed his party “incapable” of beating Mrs. Clinton in a potential 2016 matchup.
“[I]f their competitor in ‘16 is going to be Hillary Clinton – supported by Bill Clinton and presumably a still-relatively-popular President Barack Obama – trying to win that will be truly the Superbowl,” Gingrich said.“And the Republican Party today is incapable of competing at that level.”
HILLARY 2016!!!!!!!!!! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!

How can Hillary pass up 2016?
With Quinnipiac the latest to show Hillary Clinton romping toward the White House, it's becoming increasingly clear that she would face an easier path to the White House than anyone since Eisenhower, and maybe even since Thomas Jefferson.
As I note in greater detail below the fold, there is little room for an insurgent primary candidate (and the rest of the shaping field lacks any heft), while her general election numbers are downright gaudy. The big question is less about whether she can win, and more about whether she wants to pull the trigger and make history.
If she does, Dems are virtually guaranteed the White House for another eight years, and with that, at least one Supreme Court seat (Scalia would be 88 by the end of her second term). How could she refuse that? So meet me below the fold to see how she gets there.

It's ​​Verrazan o, not ​ ​"Veranzano ​."​
And no part of the "Veranzano Bridge​" touches New Jersey, doofus. It's in New York. Completely.
Try being a smarter smarta$$.

"You'd think they'd change the name from "Fox News Poll" to "What Stupid People Think" just for accuracy."
You may be half-right. Half of those polled are self-described liberals like yourself. But you shouldn't condemn them as stupid people. Like you, they believed the Liar of the Year.
"And by the way, the ACA is already working."
Do you mean Obamacare?

Who said it was ....smartasszzzs.
#55124 Dec 21, 2013
LOL! Change your name but there's no hiding your stupidity.
Your first post referred to Christie closing traffic lanes in New Jersey leading to the George Washington Bridge.
Your second post confirms what a doofus you are in trying to obscure your embarrassing reference to the totally New York controlled Verrazano–Narrows Bridge over which Christie has no influence. You thought it was in New Jersey!
FAIL! Twice in two posts. Brighten up, smartasszzz.

You sir, are one super sleuth but unfortunately you're mistaken again. Yes, again and again and again...
Always the same...
you should give up on your error correction career based on how bad you are at it.
Maybe you should look at how bad your judgement really...because its really awful.
However, since you are proficient at being wrong so often...you may want to go for the "Moron of the
