Or poor memory...but we still can't forget about Miss Benghazi either...some choice.
If the majority of Americans think Obamacare is bad now, they better hope that one of two things happen:

1) Biliary doesn't get elected; or
2) Repubs take back control of both chambers

When she was First Lady, she worked on getting her own version of Oblundercare passed (Biliarycare?). Was very similar to Obamacare, but more extreme in that it called for prison sentences for those that refused the mandate.

So why does this matter at all?

Because it's an example of current day politics.

The whole situation just looks to be a case of using power vested with the government for petty revenge that you'd expect to see from high school teenagers.

And the ones most affected are the commuters trying to get to work or school. And I doubt they even gave one thought that closing down those lanes would also affect Christie voters. Nor do I think they even cared.

As far as I'm concerned, someone needs to go to jail for that little stunt.

The traffic on the George Washington bridge was tied up for 5 days and Chris never once asked WHY or even found out what the problem was.....that is the main transportation route is using that bridge!
It's a pitiful shame!
Also, he is being investigated for the hurricane Sandy fund that he used part of for an ad that his family was in!
I think Jeb Busch has a better chance for 2016 than Chris!

The G. Washington Bridge is the busiest in the world. Four staff members gone from firing or resigning. One is in formal contempt status of the N..J. state legislature. Interstate commerce seems to be involved to me, hence, this could have jurisdiction of federal law. Port Authority of N.Y./N.J. is involved here too.

Concurrent with the damning emails, that female deputy chief of staff Christie fired the other day toured Seaside Beach/Heights with him after this year's fire that destroyed what was re-built by Hurricane Sandy's damage.

It's my understanding that Gov. Christie received approval for those ads to spur tourism. That angle likely won't go anywhere.

If a cover-up is fished out of this, well ..

I only know of one person who was fired and he has been calling her a liar to taint her credibility! And yes, most certainly this is a cover up....for 5 days he has no concern as to why the bridge was the way it was or even did anything to fix it! Makes no sense to me! But think about the people who suffered from all of this nonsense! People who couldn't get to work, Police couldn't get to certain places to help with 'real' emergencies, people who had real emergencies and need medical care couldn't get to their destination!
From my understanding, he did not receive approval for any ads by using monies from a disaster; that is why they are doing an investigation!
I have noticed that he doesn't look very happy when approaching a mic....he looks scared to me! A huge change in attitude from before....

Spirit67_ you are letting your imagination run wild,[ but what's new?]
You accuse and claim without any substantiation, not very smart on your part.
2 entrance lanes were temporarily closed for no purpose the state police do that all the time when there's an accident, do they ever get called up?
Even if he knew it was just a slap in the face for someone that should have known better than to personally piss off a superior in rank be it
democrat or republican, Christie was just obliging his constituents.
It's part of the political system.
You tell me how does that compare to all the shite Obama's done?

Al Gore did the same thing to suppress the vote in a Republican area. It was known and they just said politics is a tough game. They even bragged on doing it. Rush had a great comment on how many thousands of Tanks, ships and aircraft were build during the 3 1/2 years of world war 2. In the same time Obama could get a web site to work and it still doesn't work. The Spanish verson is mistranslated through out
