    I love the media reaction to this story. I fully intend to wake up tomorrow and read that the Fort Lee traffic jam caused 9/11.

I read through them, I don't see anything clear cut that it was intended to punish this mayor, it was a traffic study of why the exit needed 3 toll booths. Wonder what the studies actual results look like.

    The emails linked were a big mess, could have missed something in the flow.
    There wasn't a traffic study. That was a lie by Wildstein... who later admitted that he simply ordered the lane closures. And here is Wildstein's email reply to Kelly... the lady in Christie's office who just got fired.

    It was Wildstein who responded in August to Kelly's email request that it was “time for some traffic problems” aimed to disrupt the life of the Fort Lee mayor.

    There's pretty compelling evidence that a few people abused their positions to retaliate against a political opponent. There's a good chance that these were criminal acts. They deserve a chance to defend themselves, but they should probably face a face wrongful death lawsuit at the minimum. Certainly we should investigate what they did and why they did it.

    But why is this about Christie? So far there's zero evidence that he had anything to do with anything. The way he handles this is very important, and the fact that it happens raises questions about his management style. But this is not a Christie scandal until we know that he did anything wrong.

    Ask yourself, how would this story be covered if Christie wasn't a frontrunner for the GOP in 2016? Don't you think this story is being pushed towards Christie purely for political reasons? And I'm not blaming just Democrats. There are more Republicans interested in taking down Christie before he has a chance to build any national momentum.
    solid point.

    Honest huh? I suppose you don't need any investigation or anything... if he say's it, it's true. That's that. lol

    Wildstein, Christie's appointee to head the port authority that made the order to shut down those lanes... yeah, that was Chris Christie's high school buddy. I'm sure they never talked about any of this since it happened four months ago.

    Simple

    Considering that all the GOP b****ing about Obama being involved in the so call "IRS scandal" and now many of those same GOPers are staying quiet now about Christie. I am just trying to determine if all that crying was legit or just more partisan reality TV.

    I mean why are both situations different?

    Why do Christie get a pass from you guys?

    He knows better than anyone that his political future depends on the truthfulness of what he said today. Personally, I believe him, but my confidence in his truthfulness is buttressed by the circumstances.

    Not only that, but he RESIGNED over it last month. But Christie was shocked ! shocked! When he heard about the scandal just yesterday.

    So his HS buddy and top appointee from a significant state agency abruptly leaves, but Christie isn't even curious as to why?
    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.
