    That is the problem with inconsistancy. On one hand you (the right) want to hold Obama responsible for a low level IRS employee in Cincinatti, for something that probably wasnt even intentional, yet give Christie a pass on something someone who was next in line to him and probably with him the entire day of the incideint undeniably ordered. And there was even a fatility, an elderly lady died in the backed up traffic.

A signed confession via a Democrat politicians poll where they are forced to answer truthfully as evidence ... surely you're joking.

    It was a federal issue. You do know that an interstate bridge means mulitple states, and that means the feds could get involved right? It's only the busiest bridge of it's kind in the world.

    No where do have I ever said I want to give him a pass. I'm stating the left sees an opportunity to destroy Christie politically with a regional issue - they do that by blowing the issue up nationally to remove him from the 2016 election. If Christie lied, as with anyone else, he should be held accountable for his actions. Yet to this day, no evidence has shown he did lie, yet the character assassination by the left plods on. I'd like to see evidence of the IRS and the Bridgegate ... however, I'm 100% sure the IRS issue is closed and we'll never know how far into the WH that went, while our wonderful media will relish lambasting Christie (a Republican) by stomping their feet and demanding every single email, conversation, etc... for the next 2 years.

    BTW - the accusation method of posting gets rather old and is overused. Try something new.

    I never claimed it was not a federal issue, just questioned the speed in which federal subpoena's were levied.

    You said it's a regional issue and many others have said it's a local story. It's not. The speed in which federal subpoena's isn't actually that surprising. It's the worlds busiest bridge and the investigation has been going on since the incident first happened.

    When compared to federal subpoenas about the IRS issue it was like lightning.

    Uh oh, Plowgate! Time for a federal investigation and De Blasio anal exam.

    Mayor de Blasio admits 'more could have been done' on Upper East Side during snowfall - NY Daily News

    Hopefully our leftwing hack friends who piled on top of Christie will also call for De Blasio to be thoroughly investigated complete with colonoscopy.
    Huge swaths of the city’s wealthiest neighborhood had been not been plowed by early Tuesday evening
    It was still snowing Tues evening.

    God forbid the UES has to wait until the snow has actually fallen before it is plowed

    Perhaps the facts then will show I'm wrong, however, I, unlike some, can tell the difference between **** and shineola. To think or believe Democrats are not trying to remove Christie from running in 2016 is either utter and purposeful ignorance, or extreme naivete.

Of course no politician is nothing if not skilled at presenting one man to the public and actually being quite another one in private, but until its shown that he knew of it or even ordered the bridge shutdown to occur I think what he's doing has been quite admirable. By that I mean he's apologized profusely, fired the staffers known to be connected to it, and personally met the mayor of Fort Lee.
    You and I play no part - literally no part here. I'm talking about those who do - Democratic mayors in NJ and NY, the media, the federal government. Putting myself in the DNC's shoes, I know that if there's an opportunity to crucify Christie politically, I will want to go all in and then some without risking jail time for myself. No other Republican offers more hope for the WH in 2016 than Christie and if he can be hurt, he will be removed from 2016 and hopefully removed from the Republican Governors Association which will again, politically deal a blow to the RNC who has been gaining ground with all the Obama WH missteps in 2012 and 2013. Realize, I'm looking at this from a purely political perspective.
