    Then again, better he realizes he needs to watch his staff a bit more now, than if/when he is elected president.

    You know I am beginning to believe Christie is telling the truth but I also am intelligent enough to know he has a vested interest in excluding himself from any involvement.

    Are the Democrats jumping on this ? Damn straight they are and if this was a Democrat you know the Republicans would be doing a happy dance. And that is done in this forum too. When the posters here read a politician was caught raping a girl scout the first thing they do is to see if he has a R or D next to his name. Then minutes later they might read the article to see if the girl scout was okay.

    But I have to believe this is not a made up scandal. Of course thousands didn't lose their lives in this shutdown so many question why the uproar. I just have to remind them of the threads about the IPad that Obama gave to the Queen of England.

    More than anything it truly shows the true nature of these political appointees where they would really give a damn about the American people as their party is the only thing that matters.

    Ok. Lets accept your increasingly unlikely premise that Christie knew nothing of this and honestly believed he needed a traffic study to tell him that closing all but one lane on a major thoroughfare would result in an increase in traffic in the remaining lane. That makes him a moron. So, which is it, is he one of the most corrupt lowlife politicians in history or almost too stupid to exist/has zero critical thinking skills? Either way, he is unfit to govern.

    That would strongly suggest that CHristie did not know the reason for the traffic jams.

    Instead of backing up your lie that Christie investigated the issue, or that he had anyone look at the emails, you're trying to pretend this is about Obama - proof that even you know your claims are BS.

    So go ahead and run away from your claim that Gov Christie launched an investigation - we all know why you won't defend your BS
    He said he knew nothing of it. When he heard about it he took action. I suspect that meant looking at the e-mails, or having someone do so. He then fired someone and answered questions.

    What is it you don't understand about that? And given a similar circumstance what did Obama do? Who'd he fire? No one.

    So, you want to talk about lies, look to the wh before you start casting stones buddy.

    What I don't understand (because you refuse to explain) is how those people you believe Christie had look at the emails could read the one that said "Time for Ft Lee to have some traffic problems" and not realize it was evidence of a conspiracy by Christie's aides, and not tell Christie about it.

    This is based on Christie's ignorance..or possibly even malevolence. Obama is not in this situation, so don't bring him up.
    Really, Christie has it both heads and tails. Either he's incompetent and doesn't know what his top aids(who have been with him for many years) are doing, or he's pretty much a criminal.
    Again, bringing up Obama is 354.93% intellectually dishonest.

But when your party has a sitting president running for a second term, especially if unchallenged, there is no tacking left needed as Obama proved in 2012.

    Flip flopping wasn't really what Romney did in the general election. He did that back in 2008. He discarded a life long political views and stances to run in 2008. He did a 180 on many of his positions. It didn't help him in 2008, it hurt him. That carried over to 2012. For something like a flip flopper to really stick, there has to be substance to it. More substance than just tacking right for the primaries and then back toward the center for the general. For Romney it was changing his whole political philosophy back in 2008 and being a flip flopper stuck like glue to him. He was never able to over come that.
    First, my party does not have a sitting president, and never has.

    Second, you do have a point that Romney didn't really change his political positions, but only the perception of those positions. Perception, however, is all important in politics, way ahead of substance anyway, when it comes to winning elections.
