The doom and gloom predictions that were made during lasted all of a few weeks. An individual with Christie's clout should overcome this with ease, barring significant and new discoveries as to his direct involvement.
    When the election gets closer I think people are going to be more worried about how Christy would handle national and world events and not if there was a traffic jam in the arm pit of America.

    People yes, media no.

    Well you know the discussion is at low ebb when the complaints about why we name things the way we do trots out...

    Maybe we would say he did a Dick, or Nixoned himself.

    Are there more fat people in the country than blacks?

    If Christie can separate out the fat people and get them all to vote for him, he will win hands down.

    He can be the first Obese-American President.

    We are 2 years from the election year and I am sure some republican is going to do something stupid and the media will focus on that.

    I doubt this will have staying power.

    If evidence doesn't conclusively link Christie and he decides to throw his hat in the Prez race for 2016 I will beg to differ. Wanna bet a beer in the DP Tavern? I lose I buy, you lose you buy.

For each individual, for each person there is differences and those differences on points of view is as valid for one as for others. What each of think is right for them.

    Contrary to most partisan's view, neither of the our two major parties are trying to destroy America. Both are trying to make her strong and as prosperous in the future. Their paths and ideas on how to get there are very different. People will see one or the other or even both parties as wrong as all get out in their path and ideas. But that doesn't mean either is our to destroy us and our beloved country.

    Let me stop here before I write a book, I think you get where I am coming from.


    Very nicely put and yes, I do get where you are coming from...

    I don't know who wants Christie out of the race more: Democrats who see him as the only real challenge to Hilary or Republicans who are hell-bent on destroying their party.

    I've said in the past he's fine...he'll be running it's a long time until 2016.

    As some other posters have said though...it will be toxic in the Republican Primary. Do the establishment Republicans want to back a guy that has his reputation? What else may come out? Are they better off going with Scott Walker or some other similar type of Republican Gov?
