    They called this bridgegate "impeachable" and there's more .
    There's a whole lot more to him, and if he runs for president, you can be sure the media is going to dig for it

    Gov Chunk Chunkie is a waddling time bomb for the GOP. Let's hope it goes off after he wins the nomination

    I'm also enjoying FOX trying to say that Obama said "exactly" the same thing as Hillary, with no respect intended for Gate's book.
    The right-wing media machine is lying about Gates' book, is overwhelmed with Christie,
    embarrassed by Rubio's strike-out, and fearing Paul's and McConnell's low ratings in KY.
    Christie has already affected 2014 by changing the discusasion from ACA.

    As well, the economic justice thing is working, but more pussy Democratic congresspeople need to be hitting the airwaves as the GOPees do.
    I like Hoyer defending BHO, along with Boxer.
    Popular and safe Dems need to be speaking out every day like the GOP-ists .

    I hadn't paid much attention to the brouhaha about the lane closures in New Jersey until this weekend. Now I've read the article linked in the OP... all four pages of it... and I've gotta say, wow. If Christie didn't know what his chief of staff and top aides were doing, then he's left himself open for being a figurehead not a leader, a lazy ass title who lets his underlings do everything while he goes out and makes smart cracks at press conferences. "Why does Fort Lee need three lanes devoted to its traffic?" he's reported as saying a few weeks back. Well, duh, so school buses can get get kids to class and so EMT's can get to people who are, you know, in cardiac arrest (yeah, an EMT report issued during the emergency with no political agenda pointed out that a woman had died because the EMT vehicle was stuck in traffic caused by the bridge jam).

    I've always been a fan of Christie's, and was hoping to learn a lot more about him before 2016. If I liked what I learned, there was a danged good chance he'd have my vote. I'll wait to see how the reality of this ridiculous partisan idiocy pans out, but either he was clueless because he doesn't know what's going on outside his office door or he's in it up to his substantial beltbuckle. Neither scenario pleases me.

    Those emails are devastating; Christie aides plotting to give "that Serbian" (the Fort Lee mayor) what he deserves", enjoying the fact that kids can't get to school, reveling in the chaos being caused, and worst of all, colluding with Port Authority officials to keep what was happening away from the "New York side" officials. Heads have rolled, more heads will roll, and potential criminal/civil action is fluttering in the wings. What an incredibly arrogant and stupid stunt to have pulled, by people who clearly believed their power was unassailable.

    Disappointing.

    How is this relevant? Sounds like a one trick pony needing to expand his act.

    I just don't think this will amount to anything in 2 years. Christie's biggest risk is not dropping dead of a heart attack before he can run.
    But what about now and next year? I'm afraid Christie is looking too "Bada Bing" for words right now. What's next? Horse heads in opponents beds? Laws may certainly have been broken and there could be a trial. It does not seem like something an underling would do on their own either.

    They are desperate to redirect back to ACA, aren't they?
    Jobs report for Fri. looks good.
    Rubio struck out.
    #bridgeghazi has them spooked.
    Cruz, Lee, McCain, McConnell voting against 20,000 veterans on unemployment extension, from Hoyer.
    Gates will not be kind to them either.

    Isn't the word that the "big" Democrats that Christie is "in" with are the Jersey Shore connections?
    Understandable why he would bring Obama in .

    Maybe the person who died because the ambulance couldn't get through was covered under Obamacare.
    Other than that, there is no possible connection.
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    Moderator's Warning:
    Emails link top Christie aide to GWB lane-closing controversy - [W:77,109:573]Let's add stick to the topic to this thread as well/
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    This isn't just an internal Jersey spat over a traffic jam. There are very real federal issues at play here. The GWB is an interstate bridge on an interstate highway and anything effecting interstate travel and commerce comes under federal jurisdiction.
    Governor Chunk Chunky, ( thanks sangha ), has, for sure, bitten off more than he can chew.
    When the Feds investigate why an interstate traffic jam was generated on the nation's busiest bridge, and it is found to originate at Chunky's desk for a petty Jersey style political vendetta... can charges be very far behind?
