    No, so he told a lie.

    Today a drib, tomorrow a drab, forever in the history books.
    Kinda like " I did NOT have sex with that woman
    And then derail to Clinton/Lewinsky.
    "if you like your health plan you can keep it... period.."
    Oh look, a second derail, to Obama ............

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.
    People generally like America, which is why so many emigrate here. However, America and the government are not the same thing. In 1958, 73 percent of the American people said they trusted government. Today the number is 19 percent, and dropping. Political gamesmanship, putting party over country, is taking its toll. I don't know if it's just me, but little makes sense these days. People not following our laws because they don't feel like it; extreme divisiveness is being encouraged so we dislike each other because some have more than others do; scandal after scandal is occurring, but few are ever held responsible; the will of the people is being ignored in many cases; and government keeps over-reaching and getting bigger and more intrusive all the time.

    I read an interesting example recently: A million 1-dollar bills tightly stacked is 333 feet high; a billion is more than 63 miles high; and a trillion is 63,000 miles high. Our debt is currently 17 trillion dollars! The closest distance between Mars and Earth is approximately 128 million miles according to Space.com. I'm not good at math, but I wonder what the Martians would think if green pieces of paper suddenly started floating down from their sky.... How are the plans for the time machine coming along....

    Feel free to use it in one of your columns.

    The Tea partiers.....aren't going to back Christie.
    TEAs were never with Christie.
    They were going to split and give Christie the nomination, like with Romney.
    They didn't really back Romney either, did they, since so many stayed home--3rd party--or just left it blank.
    Either way, IMO. They may say otherwise. Maybe if he is the Nominee only and its either him or the lost cause.
    Christie will do well not to have health problems and finish his term.
    A far greater problem is the Hurricane money and a pattern of extortion .

    The public rarely has all the facts and is easily swayed in this day and age with with Citizens United money.

    Removing the worry of being uninsured seems like a Civil right to me.

    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.

    Our Nation was founded by Elites who knew what was best for their people.
    You know me well enough to know that was not my intention.
    Your knowledge of Asian techniques of mediation should take you forth grasshopper .
    I know, but one can become irritated. I just wish they would have taken what the American people thought and wished into their thoughts instead of only thinking party agenda. Yeah, both parties are like that and that is why I can't ever belong to either one.
    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.

    Yeah, as a child of the 50’s I can remember when pretty much every American trusted their government to do what was right. Having Eisenhower as president probably helped that in a big way. 19% huh. That may be high in today’s day and age. I do not trust either party or candidates or presidents to do what is right for America, only what is right for their political party. 1958, according to Pew Research 82% of all Americans identified/associated themselves with the two major parties while only 18% said they were independents. Today 53% identify with the two major parties and 47% of us say we are independents. The reasons are most likely what you just stated. Total lack of trust in government and the political parties.

    I’m working on the time machine, not ready yet. Shall I save you a seat?

    Re: Christie Linked to Knowledge of Shut Lanes

    As for the thread, I just switched to FOX to see what else is going on besides christie.
    Now that he admits to knowing of it during the time it was happening, how did Christie respond?

    FOX is on the equipment scandal, a real scandal not political, which may or may not involve Eli.

    Btw, Mr. Clinton has now directly entered the "save-the-Senate" campaign as of the last few hours .

    Greetings, Nimby.

    I thought I read that he said he was advised by the Port Authority as it was happening. I thought his claim has been that he didn't order the closures. Am I mistaken?

    What equipment scandal...Information overload here...I can't keep up!

    As a numbers guy, up and until bridgegate Christie had an excellent chance in the electoral college of becoming the next president. His chances were far better than any other candidate mentioned by the media and whom we keep track of. In fact using simulations of the information I have he was the only one capable of winning. Jeb Bush although he loses, comes the closest to winning besides Christie.

    I have a feeling sitting senators like Hagan, Landrieu, Pryor will welcome the campaigning of Bill Clinton anytime while running away, having some other engagement if the president goes into their state like Hagan and Landrieu have done already. It isn't that I fault them in doing so, after all survival is the number one law of politics and a lot of Republicans ran away from Bush in 2008. In the south, CLinton is a good ally to have. I don't know about the north, but the north is pretty much all blue country anyway.

    I buy into it, which is also why I am admitting to have not abandoned hope that the allegations won't pan out. Christie was closest politically to me, but I can certainly consider aligning myself with a Jeb Bush or perhaps a Rubio.
