    Speaking of Emails, you would think these guys would have known there would be a trail.
    I know I made some real bonehead Emails at the end of my career.

    Phone calls would not have given away details.
    As soon as 2014 elections are over, these Emails will be in hit ads in Iowa, etc .

    Sen. Rockefeller weighed in once last year on this issue.
    He would head the Senate Committee .

    Its not necessarily the incident that is troublesome. It is the fact that this guy won by 24 points and because someone didn't bow down to him, he decided to seek revenge. Sure a bridge closing is minor, but this is uncovering what type of president this guy would be.

    You guys always complain about Obama being arrogant and "abusing his executive powers". I would think that you would be equally disgusted with Christie right?

    He decided to seek revenge? Are you sure? The bridge wasn't closed either. I'm all for ripping into the guy hardcore if it's shown he had knowledge, ordered action, or even if he fostered an environment where people working for him assumed this was the type of action that he would want, but stick to the facts at least. It's possible that this is bad enough not to need hyperbolic exaggerations and assumptions.

    There is no proof that he ordered this or that he even knew of it - only conjecture. What will be truly telling of him in the coming days is how he responds to and handles it. And for the record, he is not my choice for President - not even close.
    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.

    These positions are not supported by facts.

    I'm no fan of Christie - if he was directly involved, I hope he gets all the grief he deserves. That's not the point I was making, however.

    Not sure where you lean, but I'm am calling bulls*** on many on the right. Any conservative who defends Christie on this and hammered Obama on the so called IRS scandal is full of it plan and simple.
