    I've said I've been pleased with Christie's handling of the situation. He fired people that needed to be fired.

    That said, MSNBC did not cause the scandal. A Republican did something wrong (assuming that people in Christie's office are Republicans, which is probably a safe assumption), just deal with it instead of trying to deflect blame.

    Yes, we know. You think Ayn Rand is God. If they all went out of business, how would they make money? Most small businesses run on a razor thin margin and the owners can't afford to just stop. Even if they've been smart about saving. In fact most entrepreneurs don't know HOW to stop working, that's what makes a successful business.

    So put down Atlas Shrugged, and live in the real world.

    Who's Ayn Rand? I've heard/seen the name before and am kind of aware that he/she was some kind of author.

    If they are living in those kind of neighborhoods, they are not operating on a razor thin margin.

    Google is your friend.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    If I actually had an interest, sure. But frankly, I don't give a **** about Ayn Rand. If that author wrote stuff I was interested in, I would probably already be aware of him/her.

    You don't see me for example jumping all over Christie, as far as the facts have shown he did not not know anything about this and he doesn't seem to be that petty of a guy. 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.
    That says it ALL!...LOL!!

    Wait for the snow to stop falling? Since when has that been a common sense strategy for snow control?

    Forget the other bullying evidence coming out. Like using federal aid money for Sandy relief for friends and against political foes despite their town drowning under water. It's aaaallllll just a traffic jam. Nothing more.
    Has any evidence come forth that proves that, or is it still based on the word of one of Christie's political opponents?

    They being my two eyes and two ears, I can't believe anyone, although not you specifically because calling you out directly would be breaking the rules but if I keep it passive aggressive enough its OK even though its obvious to anyone reading this that I mean specifically you, would be stupid enough to think I was talking about some MSNBC talk show hosts. That non-specific person would have to be as dumb as a bag of rocks to think I meant that and I say that with all due respect to the rocks.

    You seem to be awfully convinced of a conspiracy when it's involving a non-Libbo. Your personal attack is proof-positive of that.
