    Re: Chris Christie's New Jersey Is Least Solvent State

    Morning, Sangha. Long time no see.

    IMO, "CLAIMS" of his direct involvement in the bridge incident isn't the problem. It was how he dissed (and arrogance about) the situation just after it occurred. That alone started a media frenzy...they didn't really care whether or not the incident was a problem and/or directly related to him. It's a win-win for the tabloids, which make up virtually all news sources. But he sits in the "buck stops here seat".

    That's not the only issue being hurled at Christie. The Fed is jumping in on a couple of issues.

    He's just been in the right place at the wrong time...whether he's directly involved or not. The press doesn't discriminate. It'll **** up anyone without flinching.

    IOW, the media slaughter will hurt Christie...guilty or not.

Don't know how that will play out in the primaries though, but we'll see. I do like that he seems to have it together fiscally, and isn't afraid to take on big unions, and can articulate (Albeit rather bluntly) conservative fiscal principles in a way that lay people seem to get. Another thing I like is that this guy over any other (R) will most definitely bring it to Hillary in a presidential election.

    Three biggest things concerning Americans are, Debt, Economy, and Democare. However, the Dems will make the or try really, really hard to make the issues, Immigration, war on women, and general inequality issues. The low information voters will eat it up, but I'm hoping not enough. Christie seems to be the best to handle those issues, whereas guys like Cruz, Rubio, and Paul seem like they'd fall into the dems trap.


    Tim-
    I am under the impression that he does not appeal to the tea party. He is too moderate.

    I not only agree with everything you said, but I also do not believe that he actually ordered the bridge closing

    To be honest, I think it may have been the result of a miscommunication. I think his aides misheard him. They thought he said "Close the bridge!!", but what he really said was "Close the fridge!!"

    I believe that's just the Party's marching orders message having been received ...

    Re: Chris Christie's New Jersey Is Least Solvent State

    Let me start over Sangha...just start sipping my java, so I wasn't very clear in my previous reply to you in which I said the following:

    IMO, "CLAIMS" of his direct involvement in the bridge incident isn't the problem. It was how he dissed (and arrogance about) the situation just after it occurred. That alone started a media frenzy...they didn't really care whether or not the incident was a problem and/or directly related to him.

    My point is that Christie's arrogance following the bridge incident was the fuse that set off a chain of accusation regarding several things. The media (the tabloids) when on a killing frenzy. Consequently, it doesn't matter whether or not he's guilty...the slice and dice tabloids has effectively damaged Christie.

    Yes, I understand that

    Whether he ordered it, or knew about it (or not) this scandal goes right to his image as a take charge leader who doesn't mince words. It reveals him to be just another typical politician engaged in political corruption and when he caught, he engages in the same sort of political talk (ie "I take responsibility but I didn't know anything") that every other crooked pol uses to evade responsibility.

    In addition, because the bridge closing was such an obvious example of political overreach and abuse of power, the media is now free to dig up every instance in which he has thrown his (political) weight around and use it to reinforce the image of him as corrupt politician.

    Now, every deal he has made, every contract his state has awarded, and every endorsement he has received, will be looked into for signs of political favoritism and quid pro quo.
