    Ok, I'll buy that, then the question remains, how to herd cats.

    This is something I didn't know until now - the incoming Attorney General was CC's Chief of Staff.

    Now, it's possibly postponed

    Bridgegate wait? Senate committee considers postponing hearing on new AG | NJ.com

    And on Tues., he has to go before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    Not a great way to kick off a term.

    Inauguration day for Christie is 9 days off.

    If it turns out he knew about this, he's done, and should be. America has had enough of liars, and corruption.

    I am not too sure that if Christie knew about this he is done. Political pundits and us one DP tend to place way too much emphasis on one event or happening and proclaim it is over. Even without this I am not sure Christie could win in the Republican primaries anyway. Christie has become the media’s darling and they are pushing him much more than anyone in the Republican Party. His support was only at 18% within the republican party prior to bridgegate.

    But remember history, Flowers was suppose to doom Clinton, then his evading the draft, then his smoking pot, but Clinton overcame all to become president in 1992. More recently with political events, remember the Republican shutdown was suppose to doom the Republicans chances in 2014 and some were predicting the demise of the Republican Party. By the end of October of last year their party affiliation numbers was at 20% vs. 30% for Dems, in the generic congressional poll which asks which party you want to control congress they trailed the Dems 49-40. Everyone was writing the Republicans obituary.

    Two months later the numbers are 24% Rep vs. the same 30% for Dems, the generic congressional poll is tied at 43% each. More important independents prefer a Republican control of both chambers of congress by a 55-45 margin.

    If nothing else follow, Christie is home free IMO as the attention span of the American electorate is very short. If something does come out that Christie knew about it or worse yet signed off on it, it will be the Republican Right Wing that uses it during the primaries to defeat him. But with almost three years to go and this happening now, if Christie wants to run, I do not think many outside of the Democratic Party will hold it against him. It will be old news and just a bump on the road.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I think you're wrong. If he knew, he's not only toast as a governor and potential Pres candidate -- he could be impeached and removed.

    There are criminal offenses here.

    This went on for 4 days. How could he not be concerned about it? Has that question been answered

    And nearly four months after -- till he finally fired someone.

    It would be better yet if the media and government agencies responded the same and as quickly if it were Democrats involved. But no sympathy for any poitician if they are guilty of corrupting the system, Christie included.
