Chris Christie and Bridgegate

Looks like the instructions to close off several lanes at the George Washington Bridge came right out of Christie's office. Christie doesn't just talk like a bully, he acts like one.
Most of Fort Lee voted for him, so who was he trying to punish?
Christie may be physically large, but his politics are small and petty. And dangerous.

Have you noticed SOLUTION that LOCO and other conservatives on here who bad mouth President OBAMA for every little thing are keeping as quite about Christi as cockroaches at an exterminators convention…?

With all DUE respect:
Hey, hey, hey, my heart goes out
to poor poor Governor Christie.
That vengeful arrogant bully
will probably close the borders
of his little kingdom –again–
when he hears about the new federal probe
of his misuse of Sandy relief funds!
How DARE they question him!
I can just see the good Governor right now.
Having one of his childish temper tantrums.
Bouncing up and down, up and down, up and down.
Like a big, red-faced, bouncing rubber ball.
Bounce, bounce, bounce
…ready to burst,...ready to pounce.
And crying wee, wee, wee.
All the way home.
Yes, it IS time for you to go home sir.
Time to stop inflicting yourself
on the people of New Jersey.
When Governor Christie stood there
in his recent press conference
and said (with a straight face!)
” I am not a bully”, it reminded me of
the “I am not a crook” phrase
made famous by President Nixon.
History repeats itself.
The chickens come home to roost.

Yes, except they'll probably love that this takes Christie out of a presidential bid. After all, he hugged Obama!
Now the stage is set for any of their other nutcase candidates-- Rand Paul, or Paul Ryan, or Ted Cruz. Good for us!

I am not a bully; I am not a crook; I am not a witch.
The public doesn't hear the "not".

I checked into Fox News today to see how they were handling this Christie scandal. Ole Karl Rove stated that there's no evidence that Christie had anything to do with closing the bridge.
Really... Christie's Deputy Chief of Staff sent the email to shut it down, so that traffic to New York would be disrupted. This young gal decided this all by herself? The response to her email was "got it"-- the plan had already been hatched.
It's doubtful that Christie knew nothing about the scheme, and if he did know nothing why would his immediate political family just decide to do this on their own?
Watch for future stories about how the Christie Administration paid off allies and shut out foes. Politics is one thing, but these schemes hurt the everyday citizens-- most of whom voted for the guy.
I'll add New Jersey to other states I'd never move to, including Texas, Florida, N. Carolina, Wisconsin, Michigan, and West Virginia.

Ah lil teepee. Unlike Obama, Chris Christy actually got to the bottom of the problem and fired the responsible person.
Gov. Chris Christie on Thursday fired the top aide who brazenly plotted the crippling lane closures on the George Washington Bridge – insisting he was “blindsided” by the scandal but admitting that ultimately “I’m responsible.”
“I terminated her employment because she lied to me,” Christie said about Bridget Anne Kelly, 41, his former deputy chief of staff during a nearly two-hour news conference in Trenton, adding that he had no “inkling anyone on my staff could be so stupid and so deceitful.”
You're just jealous lil teepee. Obama still hasn't gotten to the bottom of
the "fast and Furious" scandal, the "Bhengazi scandal" nor has he had to balls to fire those who screwed up the obamacare rollout fiasco.
Is Gitmo closed yet?....as promised?
#8 Jan 15, 2014
Christi is responsible, he just threw his aides under the bus, is all.
#9 Jan 15, 2014
Now there is a novel idea. The top executive of a state, or a country actually being held accountable for lies/errors of his staff.
Gov. Christy gave answers/explanation and then fired a person immediately.If the fired person feels she was "thrown under the bus", she is free to speak her piece to the press.
It hasn't happened because she is guilty.
On the other hand, the Obama administration has had scandal after scandal.......there have been no explanations, no accountablility, no firings.....and the mainstream press has simply continued to give the first minority president a pass.......
Ah yes, the soft bigotry of low expectations.

You Liberals get as elevated as you want about the RINO aka Chris Christie. Conservatives weren't going vote him anyway; Tempest in a Teapot. You liberals are talking to yourselves because Christie had already been eliminated as a candidate for the people that count, the voters.
#11 Jan 15, 2014
We don't know why she hasn't spoken up yet. Maybe Christie promised her some favors, such as keeping her from going to trial. One guy who was also fired by Christie, pleaded the 5th at his hearing. His attorney DID tell the committee that if his client could get immunity he would spill the beans.
Dems didn't rally to Anthony Weiner-- they wanted him gone. They didn't support the dem San Diego mayor-- they wanted him gone.
But righties ALWAYS rally around their wrongdoers. They look at our country as some kind of football game; they chose a side (Tbagger or Repub), and then root for it to destroy the other team no matter what.
It's simpler that way because they don't have to think.
Loco, you're not running for office, so you don't have to take the party line every time something comes up. You should try being an observant, thinking, US citizen FIRST.
Think about the fact that this bridge closure was clearly an agreed upon plan by AT LEAST Christie's inner circle. Then wonder why these close allies would all plan this bridge shutdown. Are they all just a bunch of mavericks, acting without Christie's support?
These people clearly were instructed to shut down the bridge, or they thought that Christie would like them doing so, even if they hadn't checked with the Big Boss. Did they think that Christie was against the idea? Then why would they jeopardize their jobs, and risk possible jail time to do it?
Christie acted like he knew little about this shutdown for months. Why wouldn't this governor had questioned his staff about it when it happened, and for 3 months after it happened? He only brought it up, in his marathon news conference, when he knew that this scandal could not be ignored any longer. And yes, he threw a number of his staff under the bus in order to cover his butt.
Christie only cares about himself and his ambition.
#12 Jan 15, 2014
Anthony....is that you?
Anthony Weiner nearly got into ANOTHER democrat position. It was the VOTERS who rejected him.
Christy won by a landslide in a lefty state. Too bad you have nothing but unsubstiantated drivel against him. Got proof?
then stfu my lil wayward teepee.

Congratulations for repeating Fox News and Limbaugh perfectly. Since repubs have little to say in support of Christie, they try to change the subject and go back to the old manufactured Obama 'scandals'. These are 'scandals' only because Darryl Issa tries to destroy Obama with any kind of BS he can get away with.
There was never any kind of evidence linking President Obama and his top staff to the IRS mess. The only way the Christie mess and the IRS thing would be directly comparable would be if we’d found that an Obama deputy chief of staff emailed a high White House appointee in the IRS to say:“Time for some tax problems for the Tea Party,” to which his IRS colleague answered,“Got it,” launching the Tea Party counterattack.
It never happened.
The facts show that the IRS agency was struggling to keep up with an increase in political groups seeking tax exemption and was wrongly flagging all kinds of labels for extra attention – not just groups with “Tea Party” in their name but also “progressive” and “Occupy,” along with pro-Palestinian organizations.
The FBI decided not to prosecute anyone. But of course, to Limbaugh and his ditto-heads, that just meant that Obama was running the FBI.
Christie's scandal was not started by the dems. It was Christie, or his office, or both, who started the scandal all by themselves.
#14 Jan 15, 2014
And Benghazi is even less of a comparison to Bridgegate. This was another repub manufactured 'scandal'.
Of course there were mistakes made. No argument about that. But, whereas the bridge shutdown was INTENTIONAL, no one, not even Issa, pretends that Benghazi was intentional. That's a huge difference.
Then the repubs shouted that Obama never said that it was a terrorist attack. But he did say so, the next morning, which Romney found out in a debate.
Then the repubs shouted yeah, but he didn't say that it was an Al Queda attack. Well, the most recent facts how that it WASN'T an Al Queda attack. The attack was from a local terrorist group, and guess what? They were also angry about that anti-Muslim film, just as the Obama Administration had suggested.
These facts are ignored by Limbaugh and Fox, who just keep repeating the same old lies.
#15 Jan 15, 2014
of course you are mistaken lil teepee.
I reasoned my post through research and logical thought process.
If Chrisy were guilty of anything, the rabidly nasty dems would be coming after him instead of just you.........the disingenuous, lying lil teepee.
#16 Jan 15, 2014
Your post shows that you are the 'rabidly nasty' one around here. And a non-thinking rabidly nasty one.
Christie's inner circle proved themselves to be the culprits-- with their own emails. If any of the so-called scandals made up by Issa and the repubs about Obama had been proven by emails from his inner circle, you guys would be all over Obama. AND SO WOULD I.
But since Christie is a repub, you let it all go. Not much reasoning or integrity involved in your stance. You just stand up for 'your team', no matter what.
#17 Jan 15, 2014
I gaurantee that the demorats praise and thank their god, satan, daily for giving them those as naive and just plain stupid as you.
How about the IRS targeting the Tea Party? And how about fast and furious? And how about you can keep your insurance and Dr. if you like them?
The list goes on & on...
Also stupid,,, obama and all involved in Beghazi lied for weeks on end, stating that it was about a stupid film that NO ONE had ever seen.
And there you are right there lying with them!
#18 Jan 15, 2014
You're sooo witty.
He left the Senate because of both parties. And dems and repubs both rejected him from becoming mayor. Your point is pointless.
Which shows that dems will vote against party lines, unlike ditto-heads such as yourself.
In my posts which you ignored, I made the point that whether Christie knew directly or not his staff was obviously acting in a way that they thought their boss would approve. What will you say if/ when evidence comes out that shows that Christie approved the shutdown? Will you change your mind about him then? Nah, because you think that he's on your team.
#19 Jan 15, 2014
Your really not worth my time. Since you never have anything intelligent to say you just spout meaningless name calling.
I already discussed the IRS. Fast and Furious is another Issa made-up scandal that has no links to the White House. Benghazi I also discussed. Here's more about the new evidence that Al Queda was not involved, from CNN:
#20 Jan 15, 2014
Speaking of Issa, are you aware that he is an ex car thief and is believed to have torched his business for the insurance money …?
