    As much as they would ignore it if it would be a Democratic scandal. I mean fair is fair, right? Or at least it's supposed to be.

    Update on the story

    TRENTON - Gov. Christie on Thursday fired a top aide implicated in causing a traffic jams at the George Washington Bridge in an apparent act of political retribution.

    Speaking at a new conference, Christie apologized for the jams and for not understanding the nature of the jams.

    The New York Times at the same time reported that the U.S. Attorney in New Jersey - a post Christie once held - was opening an inquiry into the traffic jams and its causes

    I don't know, the whole Clinton/Lewinsky thing got plenty of press, iirc.

    We're back to what has often been true - you're not upset about bias, you're upset about which way it goes.

    BTW, that bastion of Liberalness, Fox News, has this on the top of their website. But they don't pay any attention to Democrats on Fox. Nope, Obamacare's been such a non-story there.

    And if it's just his aide that's responsible, as it appears right now, firing him would be appropriate. I'll accept that.

    Which is what they're doing. Prove otherwise.

    Prove that they are.

    Neither are provable. So this line isn't going anywhere.

    I love how you kiss any chance of winning in 2016 goodbye so easily. It makes me realize that many Republicans don't even WANT to win the Whitehouse.

    Obamacare, on the other hand, is irrelevant to this thread.
    Why because you support one and not the other, hypocrisy much?

    Fox New's goal is to elect the next president. They don't want Christie and are more than happy to take him down. The same goes for most of the Conservative media.

    For what it's worth, not knowing about it or taking it seriously is kind of believable in this case because it's such a pointless act. Who shuts down a bridge to hurt a political appointment? It doesn't even make sense.

    If that is what you want to think, I guess you can. But most people really don't pay that much attention to politics and often have a short attention span for this stuff.

    PS the "screech" happened during the primary and his campaign was already plagued by the fact he had absolutely no charisma....
