    Which I said could be told thru the media and by the way the left can play it off the cuff. Which I then admitted there are only a few on the Right that can pull it off.
    Awwwww okay. This is the line I barged in on (gotta stop doing that) "As the Democrats thrive off this type of **** " from your post that I interpreted as I did.
    I do think they are equally guilty but that who is worse is irrelevant anyway.
    If I were to listen only to my gut it tells me the conservatives are worse but I dismiss that as a lack of objectivity on my part because of my party preference.

    Did this scandal make you not like him or were you already not a Christie fan?

    Now that the positive focus is off Christie, Huckabee is trying to fill the void.
    I watched a couple minutes of Huck on FOX right now until he started whining about term-limits, based on Waxman retiring after 40 years.
    Nothing about McConnell though.

    Having his own show will help him--along with his libido.

    Just like 1994, if you can't win with ideas, fail backwards with term limits.
    Same deal in 2010.

    And then make it harder to vote--right on cue.

    You would think the GOP House would be happy with their GM and get something done .

    I don't want America to choose between a Clinton or a Bush. That just sounds horrible, and it would turn into voting for and against a family name and legacy.

Take it from someone born and raised in Arkansas, Huckabee would be an absolute disaster for the GOP in 2016 if he were there nominee. Aside from his extreme social conservativeness which would hurt him with a lot of the electorate, he has his own Willie Horton with Wayne DuMond. Wayne DuMond - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The problem the GOP has these days is the base has a few too many nutters in it, so they don't get quality candidates to even try for the nomination (instead its largely a clown show). Until they figure that out and quite moving so far to the right, they are going to have a hard time winning a national election again.

    Unlike Christie, Huck has never been popular with independents. Perhaps the only ones happy with Huck are the religious right wing. I use to be on the term limit sides, but over the course of time have reversed that. I am now in favor of repealing the 22nd amendment. All that does is make a president that wins a second term a lame duck beginning the day after the election he won a second term. The party out of power can now dismiss him unless he happens to be very popular like Reagan and Clinton were in their second terms. Approval ratings in the 60's. Besides, only FDR broke the two term limit if that is the right word, the example set by Washington. In 1940 we were just beginning to come out of the depression and WWII had already broken out in Europe. Most Americans wanted him for a third term and with war looming, FDR thought he was the best one to handle it. His third term worked out just fine.
    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.

    Term limits have hurt many states, losing good governors like the one just indicted in Virginia.
    I'm pretty much okay with states being stupid on this issue.
    OTOH, there will never be federal term limits, period .

    Most of the state with term limits followed after the 22nd amendment.

    That's certainly true for some, but there were a few hold outs even then that kept reminding that Sandy recovery did not a Christie make, and were trying to remind us of reality. As a matter of fact, some of the resurgent accusations regarding the Port Authority and Christie, I'd already heard very shortly after Sandy. I agree that even the those that didn't fall under his non-partisan bull****, waited a few weeks after Sandy, maybe a month, out of respect for the situation. Otherwise, we've known he was going to run, for a couple of years, ... at least anyone with a brain did. So your point only shows that you weren't paying attention, and mistook a temporary reprieve after Sandy for "love". As for giving him kudos for not embarrassing himself with Obama, it says more about the Republican partisanship that it was even noticed.

    Re: Christie Linked to Knowledge of Shut Lanes

    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!


    Looks Like Christie struck back with the Smear game as well.....although here he admits they attended High school together.
