    I'm shocked.

    That's what I am waiting for, actual evidence. That, and his response to Wildstein.

    Maybe he could hug Obama again and walk around holding hands. That would be pleasant for him.

    I really doubt there will be any real evidence. It is highly unlikely he would have signed an order to close the bridges or even send memos out. If anything this would have been a conversation.

    Basically it will come down to which liar do you believe.

    I was actually hoping Christie would run in 2016; if he did, I would have considered voting for him. No matter what happens from now on, his potential nomination is toast.

    Either he knew about the plan to close lanes on the bridge and approved them, or he doesn't have a clue what's going on outside his office door. Either way, not presidential material. Pity.

    Christie has a problem. Whether it's insurmountable or not remains to be seen. If he knowingly lied it starts to rise to the level of a Benghazi-like thing. Perhaps not in substance, but it certainly casts his overall veracity in question, and is a disqualifier for higher office in my view. I'm anxious to see if Christie borrows the administration's fog machine. We'll see. The long knives are out now, and he could be politically gutted.

    I wouldn't count him out. Hell, Hillary still sits atop the polls for the democrat nomination and she has Benghazi hanging over her head.

    It only hangs over her head to Republicans. Other people dont subscribe to the wild conspiracy.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Now it's getting reaaal meaty. And nasty.

    Update
    : Christie going on offensive over accusation......
    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is going on the offensive after a former loyalist said he has evidence the Republican governor knew more than he has admitted about an apparently politically motivated traffic jam ordered by one of his staffers last year.

    The governor's political team sent an email Saturday to donors, along with columnists and pundits who might be in a position to defend Christie, bashing the man Christie put in a top post at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the accusations the man's lawyer made in a letter Friday.

    The email says the former Port Authority official, David Wildstein, "will do and say anything to save David Wildstein."

    Christie's team noted that Wildstein did not present any proof to back up the claims his lawyer, Alan Zegas, made in the letter. The email also denies that Christie knew about the traffic jam or its political motive until after it was over and bashes Wildstein on a variety of fronts, characterizing him as a litigious teenager, a controversial mayor of Livingston, where Christie and Wildstein attended high school together, and for his past career as an anonymous political blogger.....snip~


    Yahoo!

    Here is the email Christie released:

    http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/i/MSNBC/Se...stie-email.pdf

    When he throws a guy he created a special position for and hired to be his "eyes and ears" under the bus, he backs up and runs him over again. And does wheelies.

    I'm wondering if Christie was drunk when he approved that email.

    It's a fascinating and truly bizarre offensive.

    He goes on to smear upside and back Wildstein, going back to (really Governor?) high school social studies class (yes, really) - and basically says Everyone knows what a scumbucket and deceptive man David is -- been that way for a long time

    --that's why I hired him and placed him in a top position at the Port Authority.

    And to prove my claim that Wildstein is lying about me and is a nogoodfornothing skunk, please refer to the article I have herein linked which describes David as "my eyes and ears inside the Port Authority."
