Jan 14, 2014 Full story: LA Daily News 25

Faced with a widening political scandal that threatens to undermine his second term and a possible 2016 presidential run, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie apologized again Tuesday, saying his administration “let down the people we are entrusted to serve” but that the issue doesn't define his team or the state.

Actually, this has all the ear marks of typical NJ dirty politics. The NJ Democrats are still upset that Christie prosecuted and jailed dozens of NJ politicians when he was US Attorney in the years before he was elected Governor. There is no evidence that he was aware of this dumb stunt as it was planned, when it was happening or afterwards until emails from his staffers' private accounts became public. When he did learn the truth, he took immediate and decisive action.

In truth, Obama should be taking lessons on the proper way to handle screw ups like this: publicly apologize to the citizens; personally apologize to the injured parties; take responsibility for it happening under his watch; immediately fire the perpetrators.

Obama took none of these actions for any of his public screw ups that included Benghazi, the NSA scandal, Fast & Furious, the IRS scandal or intentionally lying about Obamacare.

I got this

The ensuing George Washington Bridge imbroglio highlights several basic themes of a political sociopath like Christie:

[1] They always deny their involvement.
[2] Whatever inconvenience they may cause their constituency is never a primary consideration.
Remember in the last blog, I highlighted the fact that Bush jr, Cheney and others had no qualms whatsoever about having sent our brave military into a self-immolation.
[3] As a classical sociopath , who should be arrested for state and federal crimes, Christie knew the consequences of his action and still refuse to personally act in a professional way—to RESIGN!!! And not blame everyone around him who had been ‘loyal’ to him.
[4] Furthermore, it is characteristic of Christie to mock and deride any one who may question his veracity as he did with the ‘cone’ episodes.
[5] Like any grandiose, paranoid ‘thug’ who likes to ‘bully’ people, he will quickly send his loyalists to the gallows without hesitation.

Christie forgot one major problem as a inept sociopath. Unlike the self-styled Louisiana Kingfish, Huey Long, Christie has literally done NOTHING TO IMPROVE the state of N.J. Huey built roads, improved education and offered literacy to hundred of thousands of poor southern farmers. Christie funds municipal bonds for which he or his family members receive a hefty fee. In particular, it would behoove the Federal /State prosecutors to investigate his involvement in student loans, health insurance and other ‘so called benefits’ and examine how he and his family benefitted from these scams.

In the recent well received movie American Hustle by Peter Berg, one can see how a far more compassionate NJ politician was entrapped into a FBI sting. I predict that Christie will eventually end up under a Federal indictment for obstruction of justice and embezzlement of funds and more.

] Christie’s predictable shenanigans were an organic part of his nature and egregious political ambitions.

The most revealing and potentially explosive outcome of this Christie travesty is the fact that Fred Malek, a Republican King Maker who was as RUTHLESS and MEAN as CHRISTIE himself, sat quietly and uttered absurd reassurances that he, Malek [A MARRIOT HENCHMEN] ‘knew Christie and he is a good man in whom I have faith to be a good President’. In my opinion, Malek was never a good person either in the government nor in the Hotel Business. Malek was known by ‘reputation‘ as ‘son-of-a-bitch’ And had it not been for Watergate, he would have helped Nixon concentrate more federal power in his corrupt administration

Not so fast! Christie has already been caught lying. There are at least two recent pictures of Governor Christie having conversations with the guy who ordered the traffic jam... Christie said he had not have any conversation the that guy for a very long time....

Rejecting Christie so soon?

Fox News is actively supporting Christie; so, according to you, Fox News crooks are now supporting a Democrat?

Do you believe this newly convicted Congressman is now a Democrat, too?

The liberal media ugly lying communists of the NY Times, CNN, CBS, MSNBC, ABC who sympathize with the al Qaida terrorists and hate our US troops were part of the major cover –up scandal to save their Messiah Obama and Hillary Clinton the ugly saint from the truth. The Mozlem Brother Obsessed Obama knew about the al Qaida terrorists attack in Benghazi and could prevent it but the elections of November 2012 were close and he did not want to take any risk of not being re-elected by the American liberal parasitic fools. Obama decided to do nothing as he went to sleep in the basement to prevent any interruption by calls for help from our US heroes under the brutal attack of the al Qaida terrorists. Similarly, Hillary knew about the attack of the al Qaida terrorists and thought that it could risk her chances to run for president in 2016 so she blamed it on the false video while go back to sleep. Will the American fools keep silence when their US troops or US Ambassadors are deserted and sacrificed by the Commander in Chief Obama when his re-election could be affected?

Keep talking about 'traffic jams' and maybe people will forget about how you SPENT TAXPAYER DOLLARS on a promotional ad for New Jersey.

Instead of picking the low bidder for the project, Christie picked one that would SPOTLIGHT BOTH HIM and New Jersey, costing MILLIONS MORE in Federal Disaster Aid money.

Those millions could have helped a LOT of people, but better to keep on the 'traffic' topic and maybe people will forget about this 'self-serving' use of taxpayer money.

Being in the same picture does not indicate conversation, especially when the individuals are not looking at each other, pokey.

Are you serious?
Did you look at those pictures?

_One picture shows a one-on-one, face-to-face interaction (like these guys were about to smooch or something...)
_And the order picture showing both of them laughing at each other during a 911 event; a picture taken on the 3rd day of that traffic jam (maybe they were gloating about their mischief at the expense of those American civilians....)

Using this logic, FDR I was complicit in Stalin's murdering millions of Russians because FDR had his picture taken with Stalin. They even sat down and talked!

OJ Simpson was found liable in the civil trial because somebody there was a picture of OJ wearing a pair of shoes sharing similar features of foot prints found at the murder scene...

_If FDR picture was taken while Stalin was commit those atrocities, yes, FDR would be in trouble...

But, FDR the pictures were taken while Stalin was committing the murders. Not. Only that, there is documented evidence that Stalin and FDR talked with each other during the time Stalin was murdering millions. Still, I don't think this is evidence that FDR had anything to do with Stalin's murders. You can say FDR, America's first Progressive President, is a murderer based on the pictures, but I warn you. You better make sure that none of your vacation pictures inadvertently include images of any felons! Your freedom is in jeopardy.

Well, I'm not a member of the Benghazi /Fox News/Limbaugh/Issa club; I have patience to wait for an investigation to run its course. We'll know the truth before 2016.

Next time we see a picture of Christie, he might be wearing a pair of handcuffs...
