Since there will be great media attention focused on their findings, they’ll have no choice but to be thorough.

It's kind of late to be circling the wagons around Chris Christie in an effort to portray him as a feasible presidential candidate. His recent notoriety has exposed him as a bully and nobody likes a bully — well, almost nobody — so, he could not win election if nominated. The wagon-circling is prompted by the extremely short list of GOP talent, the unattractive Ted Cruz being the only remaining "star." Not only could Mr. Christie not get elected because of his rough manner, he might be in the Big House before he could attempt to move into the White House.
Frankly, it is impossible to predict who the occupied formerly grand old party could dig up to nominate for the presidency. I'm guessing we'll be subjected to another round of embarrassing comedy shows presided over by an intoxicated swaggering Rynce Priebus.
Christie was over rated just because he hugged Obama and the media ran away that kind of news that somebody in the GOP could get along with him. There is always somebody to pick up the slack.

I think we were all a bit surprised when Gov. Christie actually behaved appropriately when President Obama visited out of concern after disaster struck, at great risk of sacrificing his own political in the occupied formerly grand old party. I don't think it was a matter of the President picking up slack, but him not being everyone's president rather than a petty partisan politician just because the Governor happens to be a Republican. Gov. Christie shocked the nation by not behaving like a petty partisan, hence defying the pattern advocated by the right wing extremist fringe. His act of human decency made him attractive to many voters, but his pattern of bullying has reversed that image to make him unattractive. He brought it on himself, so it's infeasible that anyone can pick up the slack. He's Humpty Dumpty.

What is your evidence that the Bengazi, IRS, and NSA "scandals" were not thorough? I shall assume you have something more than your biases.

I must say, the upside of the Christie bridge brouhaha is that it has been bringing out a bunch of my television favorites, from presidential hopefuls like Rubio getting face time while Christie's ducking the cameras, to professional GOP spin artists like Rove, Giuliani, Hume and Priebus jumping in to do damage control in case it would turn out that they might need Christy in the next presidential candidacy mix. Even Trump has resurfaced to poison the well with gossip about the President, as have several of them, along with a certain bloated, drug addicted radio buffoon, drudging up "Benghazi" as an attempt to divert attention from the central issue — Christie's history of bullying. It's not like they like Christie; they don't because he once treated President Obama decently, which was appropriate in context. Be that as it may, they may need Christie, so they're trying to save him.

A little more evidence and they'll jump ship.

Ducking the cameras, really? I am not a fan of the rino, but his Q&A lasted nearly two hours. How much time did cankles clinton and the inept in chief give for Benghazi? They spent more time covering up than Truthfully answering questions. How much time does it take to blame a video?

If waddles misappropriated the Sandy money, there will be plenty of guys in prison who will hug him.

I agree. They don't really like him one bit because he once hugged their anti-Christ. I note that some of the fundamental extremist fringe are already trashing him by calling him a rhino, which is not a personal insult about his girth, but a code to trigger his absolute disenfranchisement, meaning that he's not crazy enough no matter how rude and offensive his behavior may be. They couldn't care less if he were to turn out to be completely Nixon-esque; they just don't like him because of how he treated President Obama. That's the era shame of it at this juncture.

I have discovered that, among politicians, the longer the explanations, the more likely they are lying.

Christie's repetitive song of innocence hit some false notes.

If it's any consulation, I also had to give back my spelling bee crayons on another thread. I spelled domestic "domestice ". Very embarrassing.

I will wait until the investigation is completed. I still won't like him, regardless of their findings.

The extremist fringe may turn out to be our greatest ally. If they doom Christie, the only Republican with an even microscopic chance of beating a Democrat for the presidency, they will probably probably present us with one of their fruitcake candidates, anyone of whom has about as much chance of winning as a rabbi eating a ham sandwich in public.
