    I wasn't comparing anyone to a Nazi.

    Hyperbole (/haɪˈpɜrbəliː/ hy-PUR-bə-lee;[1] Greek: ὑπερβολή hyperbolē, "exaggeration") is the use of exaggeration as a rhetorical device or figure of speech. It may be used to evoke strong feelings or to create a strong impression, but is not meant to be taken literally.

    Verax typed "his administration" which appears to already be in the "proof" stage of wrongdoing with the document dump from a few weeks ago which should be clarified soon with the subpoenas of more docs to arrive on the 3rd of Feb. During the review of those docs we should also find out if Christie himself is involved. That said, neither Christie being involved nor Christie not being involved is a good outcome. If he's involved it shows him to be a hypocritical, devious fraud who was elected with claims of ending NJ corruption. If he's not involved, he still loses because it means he has/had no inking or control over his immediate staff and hired corrupt people to be around him.

    Either way, it's pretty much a lose/lose situation.

    no but you made a statement that implyed that liberals would take seriously a unsourced claim of christie being associated with the Nazi extermination groups. as a liberal i would not compare anyone to the nazis unless they actually did something with the same cruelty and evil intentions that the nazis are known for.

    Of course you're going to declare Christie the loser, no matter which way it goes.

    I also presented you with the definition of hyperbole. Perhaps you should study the information I provided until you understand it's purpose.

    Is there some way you see that he's not either totally stupid and incapable or conversely fully involved? Please explain how this ends up with Christie looking good in anyway.

    its harder for me to tell what is hyperbole on a computer blog because i cannot tell how much emotion or seriousness is put into the words.

    I've made my position clear, would you like to argue those points? TacticalEvilDan made the point earlier that claiming his administration is rogue, right under his nose, is just as frightening. Either way it makes him look bad, no?

    Your proof?

    The best part, is how the people that are demanding Christie be brought to justice are the same ones that defend Obama's corruption with their blood.
