    and both of you have sullied your reputation with your public displays of that ignorance
    so, i am disappointed in both of you
    the only difference is, unlike christie, you would never would have had my vote
    Sorry I misunderstood. Most Christie voters are smart.

    You know what they say. Gullible is as gullible does.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    if christie had shown that willingness to own the problem back when it first became public knowledge, i would agree with your post

    but he didn't
    he made a calculated error by ignoring the issue until the media presented it in such a way that it could no longer be ignored
    christie was forced to take this action
    character would have been displayed had he done it months ago when that was the right thing to do
    all he is doing now is playing victim while simultaneously pretending to take responsibility. too clever by half. but then he need not be very clever to appeal to the lemming on the right

    Believe as you wish. I doubt your vote was ever within his reach anyway.

    christie was the GOP's last great white hope. in his case, maybe BIG white hope
    A chance in hell? Sure, and I can say that rationally without being likely to vote for him. The election is so far away with so many impossible variables to predict, that it's certainly possible. That said, I will absolutely change my opinion 180 degrees if anything significant that he said during today's press conference turns out to be a lie backed up by facts.

    Excluding Christie from any involvement in this sinister act how in the hell did this go on for four days?

    He fired his top aide but this must involve more than one person. Am amazed a pissed off trooper after dealing with this traffic jam for four days didn't ram the barricades off the road with his car.


    The emails from the staff find humor in people's discomfort and there is no way in hell this is their first rodeo in the improper use of their positions. If Christie is really serious perhaps he needs to flush his whole staff out.

    Wouldn't it be great if executives actually did that?

    Unemployment would go up drastically though.
