    Maybe he's making entries in his diary. I sincerely hope, since he's made the charge, it's a little better than that.

    No surprise there. Different audiences and both channels are trying to please their audience. Sometimes it seems like the DNC is running one and the RNC is running the other. I think the independent voter wanted Christie a whole lot more than the Republicans did. Anyway, independent favorable/unfavorable ratings for Christie as of a couple of days ago were 29/44, before bridgegate last December they were 46/28. That is a huge toll and a gigantic shift over bridgegate. But Hillary's favorable/unfavorable are 36/52 among independents only today and they were 34/55 last December. A slight up tick but she isn't seen too favorable either. Perhaps another election of nose holding for independents is in the make.
    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.

    If Wildstein and CC's campaign manager corroborate, DEMs and ACA will fly under the radar and keep the Senate,
    since this will be ongoing through the election.

    Since both these guys took the 5th, there must be something there.
    His campaign manager Stepian ran McCain's campaign, so I consider that a BFD .

    Hillary can take a big figurative jump off of Christie's bridge.
    I'm way more interested in Gov. Beshear's huge positive ratings in KY, compared to Rand Paul and McConnell.

    Don't you love that Southern drawl of Gov. Beshear?
    Yeah, I have noticed since Bridgegate has taken front page in the news that the president's approval rating has rose from 39 to 43%. With Bridgegate occupying most of the news those for/against the ACA has changed from 38/55 before bridgegate to 38/52 today. It is interesting to note when the ACA passed congress back in November of 2009 those for and against were almost identical to what we have today, 38/53. 4 years and so little change in the public's perception and their feelings towards the law.

    Yet the voters love the Medicaid Extension, even the GOPees.
    Christie has tried to dance the two-step on ACA also.

    Ask folks overall, and the numbers are still negative.
    Ask the folks about each specific part of ACA, the numbers are almost all positive.
    Kind of like their own congressman.
    Something this big will take years to work out.

    Here is the latest independent favorable/unfavorable ratings among the Republicans since I gave you Christie's and Hillary's. Jeb Bush 27/36, Cruz 23/37, Huckabee 30/40, Paul 32/37, Ryan 24/42. Now on the Democratic side besides Hillary the independent favorable/unfavorable ratings for Biden are 26/53 and Warren at 17/28. Like I said, 2016 looks like another nose holder for the independent voter. There isn't a candidate around, at least being touted by the media as possible running in 2016 that independents like or view them more favorable than unfavorable.

    I doubt this will last that long. This is fodder only as long as nothing more important is on the table. It may be important for Christie, but beyond that it has no legs. I don't think the kerfuffle over some lane closures translates into anything meaningful for national politics other than the fact that Christie may or may not be involved. If he is involved, he's done nationally. If not, then he may have a national future, but that was not a certainty to start with in spite of all the hoopla to the contrary.

    I'm with you on Hillary, the anointed one. I really haven't seen much on KY outside of a couple of senate polls.

    Perhaps, I know there is no going back. But I will not back or vote for any candidate who supports it. Forcing something on the American people who did not want is completely wrong and as far as I am concerned, more unethical than Christie's bridgegate. This was pure party wants over American wants. party first politics, loyalty to party which included giving bribes to certain senators to get them to vote for it when arm twisting didn't work. The cornhusker kickback and the LA purchase.

    For the life of me, I can't understand how you and Sangha can be so proud as to force a minority's will onto the majority. The ACA wasn't some civil rights legislation or something dealing with equal rights, it was nothing but a pure party agenda that jumped in and passed something that the majority of Americans view as against their will and well being. The party elites, the elites of Washington who are saying they know better what is good for Americans than Americans themselves. Those dumb American people, they know nothing. Us elites will have to save them from themselves.

    Dang it, I was in a good mood, not anymore.
