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.
    Good summary HB.....truthfully Christie rocked California and then the MS media was jumping on the bandwagon. Course word was Demos were siding with him Jersey. Then the Polls came out on how well he relates with Hispanics. Ever since then.....its been a full court press by the MS and Demos to catch dirt and hook-em up.

    The public rarely has all the facts and is easily swayed in this day and age with with Citizens United money.
    The ACA wasn't some civil rights legislation or something dealing with equal rights,
    Removing the worry of being uninsured seems like a Civil right to me.
    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.
    As sangha said, the GOP had plenty of input into the process, well-chronicled.
    Their blanket opposition is just as bad as the DEMs blanket support, to be fair.
    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.
    Our Nation was founded by Elites who knew what was best for their people.
    Dang it, I was in a good mood, not anymore.
    You know me well enough to know that was not my intention.

    Re: Christie Linked to Knowledge of Shut Lanes

    Right now there are two Republicans, Christie and McDonnell taking some very bad hits in the media. I just read a piece that former Governor McDonnell of Virginia and his wife are in really deep doo doo being charged with 14 felony counts and the Republican establishment are not coming to his aid. Yet not too long ago he was one of their darlings just like Christie. Just a handful of people have donated to his defense fund. If there is proof of Christie knowing about the bridge closings after emphatically denying it, then he is history. I hope the accusations are unfounded because it really ends up harming the party in general. At Buzzfeed they were reporting before this story broke that some big wigs in the party were really concerned over Christie and many were waiting for the other shoe to drop. If this story turns out to be true, it's definitely the other shoe.

    They just haven't said when.

    I only count two that have taken the 5th, presumably waiting for immunity.
    I don't imagine this was the Super weekend for which Christie was looking .
    Is there any evidence he ordered the lane closing? No, so he told a lie. Kinda like " I did NOT have sex with that woman..." , or "if you like your health plan you can keep it... period.."

    Christie is a perceived threat to the dems because he could win in 2016 by their own calculations and incantations. My feeling is that unless the dems can find a way to stimulate a stagnant economy, they're toast anyway. It won't matter whether it's Christie or another. That's assuming the repubs aren't stupid enough to nominate another weak candidate, and that remains to be seen. If Christie is left standing at the end of all of this, they're really going to have a problem.

    Oh I think so to.....Obama's falsehood with the economy is just one part. After March his repeated failure of the care package will be center stage once more.

    The Tea partiers.....aren't going to back Christie. Either way, IMO. They may say otherwise. Maybe if he is the Nominee only and its either him or the lost cause.

    I agree. The TP isn't going to field a third party candidate and I don't think anybody else on the right will try as long as a reasonable candidate is found. (I only hope the Rove's of the right keep their powder dry during the nomination process - an empty, pointless hope I'm sure. Those people do more to alienate parts of the right than anything the left can do). Obama has said the ACA isn't going away, so I guess he's going to have to live with the consequences - and drag down his party in the process. When one sows the seeds of one's own demise, the best the enemy can do is offer some water and fertilizer. I hope for a little more emphasis on the constitutionality of the delays in implementation Obama has directed. I admit I haven't kept up with that.

    Wasn't Herman Cain harassing employess, then uh, I guess the left lied about the payoffs, I am sure that never happened...I am sure it was some left infiltrating...it would just be work to be a right winger now days. I dont think I could keep up with all this victim stuff.
    Yes he knew about the shut down that he was told that they were doing a traffic study not shutting it down on purpose to get back at a mayor. there is a difference.
    he admits that he knew about the shut down. what he doesn't admit to is that he knew the correct reason.

    the difference is that Obama knew about the attack and did nothing.

    no herman cain wasn't harassing the employee's. out of all the people that claimed all the things he only knew one of them. the one lady he knew he had helped out before when she got into a financial spot. she kept coming back to him for money and the one time he said no she makes a false claim.

    all of this is proven fact.

    I think the only fact is all of that is the Company paid to shut the lady up. If he was not guilty, why would they pay?
