People need to grow up and stop falling for media manufactured "scandals".

    This is simply a matter of a left leaning media needing to change the channel from Obamacare and from Benghazi/Hillary and to attempt to bring down some big game in the Republican party slate for 2016. I don't think Christie will be the nominee for the Republicans in 2016, but if he isn't it won't be because he played favorites doling out Sandy relief funds.
    Oh so its all good then cuz this is just politics huh?

    I swear you guys, you're masters of bs. No matter what happens you can spin reality to fit your needs.

    Is there any part of my post that claims "it's all good"? I simply said it's politics as usual.

    The only ones spinning here are the whiners who are trying to claim victimhood and a scandal when in fact they do the exact same thing themselves when they have the power to do so. Anyone who doesn't think it happens from the far left to the far right of the political spectrum is just fooling themselves.

    Yes you are implying in so many words that it is all good. I mean listen to yourself...

    Multiple scandals come out showing that Christie is likely behaving in an abusive, aggressive, mobster like manner and you chalk it up to politics as usual? Everyone is like this? Have you ever worked in politics? They are not ALL like this?!?!? There's a difference between making hard nosed deals and blackmail!

    This is grade-a spin nonsense.

    Wouldn't that be funny if it was Christy against Hillary and all through the campaign he kept repeating there was a vast left wing conspiracy against him. It would be even funnier for him to say that in a debate with the camera on her face.

    Yes, I have worked in politics, and everyone who has power uses it in ways to further their political and/or ideological goals. There are very few, if any, who enter politics for altruistic reasons and certainly precious few who get anywhere near the seats of power who remain totally altruistic. What do you think goes on in Congress every day or between Congress and the President?

    Yes its dirty but they're not all this bad, far from it. If this is all true Christie crossed the line, big time and he deserves to get taken out of power for good. There are a lot of good politicians out there who do it for altruistic reasons, maybe you just haven't met many. You might be surprised how many on the left are actually really good people who just aren't in a position to do much because the larger powers are in control.

    You're right! Christie **** in his mess kit by trying to buddy-up to the Libbos and bashing Republicans.

    Re: Mayor Claims Christie Camp Held Hurricane Sandy Money Hostage

    Our lovely Wonkette sums it up nicely:

    So let’s recap, shall we? We’ve got Bridgegate, which started out small and then snowballed into “Christie lied, people died” levels of problem.

    Then there was the little problem about how he took some Hurricane Sandy money earmarked for tourism revitalization ads and, while he did totally make ads with that money, he did so by giving sweet coin to the highest bidder on the project,

    who just happened
    to guarantee that the featured ad would include maximum footage of Chris Christie and his family. Now, we’ve got the almost laughably stereotypic mob pay to play move of telling Hoboken “hey, nice city you got there. Shame if anything were to happen to it.”

    Seriously, we cannot WAIT to see what happens next. Can you?

    Actually it is part and parcel of your typical CON game. Oxcy Rush has made his money hypering his bole off for the silly CON sheeple flocking to be that one PT Barum thought was born every minute....
