    Show me the evidence he knew. You'll find no louder voice than mine calling for his head. Until then... Christie served up a leadership 101 course yesterday.

    I think both issues should be fully and openly investigated and those involved held accountable. Abuse of political power shouldn't be tolerated by anyone.

    For now,
    it would seem that Christie himself was not personally involved, and he has fired the aide responsible
    . I can accept that, and in some ways I respect him a lot more for it.
    Yup.
    And if there's evidence Christie lied then he'll be known as a lying schmuck deserving of contempt and ridicule.
    That's on the Christie hand ... what about the Obama hand where there's already that evidence?

It's also about obvious partisanship and hypocrisy. If someone foams at the mouth about Christie they should be equally foamy about Obama but we all know that's not happening. Therefore, it's very easy to dismiss the "noise" by Democrats simply by saying "IRS" and "Lois Lerner". The other point is something people do when say a very outspoken TV Evangelist is found having say gay sex with a prostitute... everyone piles on taking jabs at the obvious hypocrisy of them, staining all with a broad brush, laughing and having a good old time and rightly so. That evangelist set himself up as something he was not, fell, and now is forever labeled as a fake, fraud and charlatan. Obama claimed transparency, claimed hundreds of wonderful things in 2007 and 2008 in that on/off minister voice he uses during speeches and reality shows he's the direct opposite. The difference is no dog pile - defenders continue to defend the most closed and non-transparent WH we've seen in recent history. Christie by contrast has been open, outspoken and transparent and has lived up to it. Every leaders has issues and crisis of some magnitude, it's the test of one's character to see how they handle it and if they survive it. A comparison between Christie and Obama is stark and obvious. If no further evidence damns Christie he will come out of this better than going in. I only hope Obama was taking notes during the press conference yesterday.

    A TV evangelist who snorts meth off of a male hooker's erection deserves what he gets.

    I wouldn't call Obama's administration less open and transparent than Bush or Clinton. Which is kind of damning with faint praise (Well, at least Kim Jong Un is no Stalin...). Obama claimed a number of things that didn't happen, which is what happens when you elect a politician.

    I'll be the first to criticize Obama about the IRS thing, and in fact I WAS the first person on DP to do so. But, this thread is not about the IRS, or Obamacare, or how "transparent" the Obama administration is. Let me ask you, when Grim drops a thread about MSNBC, and liberals jump in talking about Fox, what do you think of that? Do you see the obvious comparisons between MSNBC and Fox? While I have been guilty of that myself, I'm labelled as "deflecting" when I am. What's the difference?

    Why did you just cut off part of that post? It shows he indeed was deeply involved in early December.

    Why did you do that?

    I'll repeat it and see if maybe you might comment on what you wanted to ignore:
    ==========================

    Strange he would show such a lack of curiosity in getting to the bottom of it, innit?

    I'm trying to figure out why he would want to call off the dogs as he did...

    Governors Spoke Privately About Bridge Controversy

    Chris Christie Complained to Andrew Cuomo That His Appointee Was Pressing Too Hard for Answers

    Dec. 12, 2013 9:58 p.m. ET <----

    "Mr. Christie, a Republican, complained in a private phone call to Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, that Patrick Foye, the executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, was pressing too hard to get to the bottom of why the number of toll lanes onto the bridge from Fort Lee, N.J. was cut from three to one in early September, according to this person."

    Evidence. Look it up. I cut it off because I felt like it and my previous post addresses your specific comment.

    I have criticized Obama for being a lying schmuck when there is evidence of that. Why do you think I didn't vote for either "Obamney" in 2012?

    Morning Ockham. For me it isn't about finding some smoking gun evidence that Christie knew. Common sense tells me he did. Now if this email had been sent by some minor member of his staff, I would give Christie the benefit of the doubt that he did not know but this person was his closest senior aide that sent the email. If a leader doesn't know what his closest aide is up to then he isn't much of a leader. Either way Christie looks bad in my opinion.
