Christie was never the chosen one by the Republican voters. He was a media darling. Anyone who believes he was unaware of what was going on with the traffic jam is short on smarts.

Finally something we can agree on… although your reasons are based on the fact that Christie expressed admiration and thanks for and to the President just before the 2012 campaign. But, whatever; let’s just celebrate this moment of unity; this temporary moment of sanity for you.

The 1st of the un-electables is getting some fresh air & exercise before the public. Rubio & Cruz will get trotted out a bunch for more public viewing, but it's really too early for any of these 1/2 wits to get any real play.
Can the GOP find a candidate that they themselves won't destroy by Nov.'16?
Doubtful...

Christie favors illegal aliens over Americans. That's his main problem.

Christie knew what was happening for sure. That is what is scary. Imagine what kind of crap his administration would pull if he were President. It would not be a city with a traffic jam but a state without federal emergency help. It is a shame that these politicians think they can play games at the expense of the people in this country. There is no way that guy should be president. True colors were shown!

Christie will not be the Republican nominee for President in 2016, or any other time. Not because of Bridgegate. We have come to expect dirty politics from both political parties, but because he cannot decide whether he is liberal or not. He wants to be liberal to win elections, but he is too much like Obama liberals, The Robinhoood Approach, rob the rich to let the poor lay around doing nothing. Been there done that, and we ran out of rich.

The best thing that happened out of this scandal is that Hillary finally spoke. She had nothing to say about Obamacare, NSA spying, IRS bias, immigration, Syria, Benghazi or the debt ceiling. I guess she's more knowledgeable at gossip items than she is at matters of national importance.

I guess that's why there is an ever-widening gulf between the rich and poor in this country.

There is a widening gulf between the rich, and the poor, because the poor have no intentions of taking responsibility for themselves. The rich, go to school, go to college, get jobs, work hard, and more, and more the poor rely on Government handouts. The Government doesn't give them enough for a good life just enough for their beer, and cigarettes. It keeps them happy enough, but the money runs out the last week of each month so they spend that week complaining about how hard their lives are without what the rich has, it never occurs to them that the rich (Gasp) works for a living. The American workers are becoming more, and more disgusted with the rob the rich scenario.

Catboy, you spew the same spam day in and day out but perhaps you might want to consider those folks who WORK (read the word WORK again) at one/two minimum jobs and are still considered POOR (read the word POOR again.

I would bet those folks, catboy, are insulted by your ignorant comments as they try to meet their bills, feed their family and give their children every opportunity to do better.

It is not the poor that you are talking about it is the middle class. The "poor" that Cat refers to are those that do not want to work, could care less about their children and they are demanding more and more from the system. The wealthy are more than willing to give in to the demands of the "poor" to live like the middle class as long as the middle class pay for it. That is why the middle class families are finding that both mom and dad have to work and sometimes more than one job each just to support the “poor”. Closing the gap between middle class and poor by redistributing wealth from middle class to “poor” makes the poor happy and the rich richer. By taking care of the 47% who pay no taxes and the 1% who pay the most taxes the Democrats have no need to worry about the middle class as long as they can keep the idiots from seeing the truth.
