The Progressive Leftist will fall over each other as if fighting for carrion to distract people's attention from the failure and tyranny of Obamacare, the complete idiocy of the Vice President and the dedicated Marxism and marriage failure of the President.

Topix can always rely on your twisted version of the facts. You are too full of yourself to recognize how shallow and obvious you are.

You can usually spot a liar by the length of his explanations. Christie's explanations were virtually endless.

He's toast. Did it to himself.

Not surprising, being a representative of the party of Depression and Dirty Tricks.

Republicans just get more irrelevant.

Christie may have known what was going on, in which case he is co-guilty as sin. Or it might have occurred behind his back, in which case it would be very unfair to make him a scapegoat just because you don't agree with his politics.

I choose to give him the benefit of the doubt. He is a moderate Republican and I am a no-nonsense Democrat. I have always thought highly of him both as a man and as a politician.

What really angers me, however, is how some cases of journalism have been picking on his physical size to attack him. "Fat and Furious" reads one headline. "Fat Chance," reads another. This is gutter ethics. Suppose Christie were black or Jewish. Would the public tolerate headlines like "Wooly-Haired Error" or "Hook-Nosed Politics?"

"I had 2 sleepless nights about this"

"I just found out about this 24 hours ago"

The more he talked, the more he lied. If you believed this bag of hot air you are very naive.

Meanwhile, is Darryl Issa still hunting for a scandal? No announcement yet that the IRS manager also targeted progressive groups? I guess he hasn't heard that news clip yet as he "investigates".

Longest investigations ever......we'll wait on your updates Issa. lol

I think repubs will gladly ignore this episode of they have no better option for President. We are talking about the same group that was willing to put up with Palin as VP, and later Romney as Pres.

If this story was about PBO deciding to tie his left shoelace before his right, it would be full of right wing comments.

But since it's about something serious, and I'm sure even they have trouble swallowing Christie excuses, no repubs here.

lol typical.

rightwing nutjubs believe Christie was completely clueless to his closest aides doing things that needed his authority to do......but President Obama was all up in the Cinn. IRS Office.
