    Was Christie ever really a real candidate? Most conservatives I know of see his as too liberal.

    I'm sorry but I find it really hard to believe Christie didn't know about this little escapade seeing the one closest to him is the one that took the fall. We have had a know nothing president for 6 years. I didn't believe him when he said he didn't know the NSA was spying on Heads of State. I didn't believe him when he said he didn't know the IRS was targeting conservative groups. I didn't believe him when he said he didn't know anything about Fast and Furious. I didn't believe him when he stated he didn't know about the DOJ seizing the phone records of AP reporters. And I sure as heck didn't believe him when he stated he wasn't aware that Healthcare.gov failed its first primary testing and I don't believe Christie when he says he didn't know. Baloney. This thing isn't going away for Christie anytime soon. They have already discovered 4 EMS calls where the ambulance drivers were delayed getting people to the hospital during this charade. One ended up dying.

    I was thinking the same thing. The way he chastised her today, in a national news forum, will certainly have repercussions. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. I'm sure she has plenty of "behind the scenes," stories to tell. Unless, of course, he made prior arrangements to throw her under the bus, with her approval. If that's the case, I bet it cost him plenty.

    I think the only people who really think he's 'toast' are people who wouldn't want him to run or win in the first place. I'm not sure. He's my top candidate for 2016 but I'm really bad at predicting the winds of these sorts of things. If he's not personally involved it doesn't seem like something that should sink him. He has almost two years to let this air out I can't imagine that if it's just his aides that it would be enough to ruin his candidacy. So much will happen between now and then.

    Those Conservatives said the same thing about McCain and Romney. Just saying.

    The theory is, I think, that if the candidate is conservative enough, he/she will win.

    So, obviously, McCain and Romney weren't.

    I do not know. I hope he is toast. But this media attention could be a scam to exploit the public's short attention span so that when 2016 rolls around this will no longer be an issue.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    She was thrown under the bus on national television. If this was not only her doing, then she just may try to rat Christie or others out. There's no way she acted alone. Of course, she might have been offered hush money.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    He's close enough already...he can just switch declared party affiliation and poof....the 'scandal' will magically disappear. People will be like "what scandal, what difference does it make, its not like HE did it, can you PROVE it?"
