Chris Christie - good precedent

Posted on 01/12/2014 7:10:15 PM PST by crazylibertarian

What does Christie's possible impeachement mean?


TOPICS: Politics
KEYWORDS: christie; impeach
So now a Democratic New Jersey Assemblyman is saying that what has happened with the Ft. Lee/George Washington Bridge fiasco might be an impeachable offense. He pontificates that using government authority to harass political opponents is illegal. Fine but will he and his Democommie, oops, Democratic thugs say the same thing about what has happened under Barack Obama?

I have no love lost for Chris Christie, thinking he's a sellout but what's sauce for the goose...

And Christie said an interesting thing during his press conference, that he has 65,000 people in his employe, implying that it's very difficult for him to keep track of all of them, all of the time to ensure that no one does anything illegal or, even, unseemly, I guess, which is also fine and certainly plausible. Now how can any president, or even a head of an agency of the federal government, keep track of everything all those millions of employees do, including the military?

Doesn't this entire episode become an argument to take a machete to our entire government which of course will NEVER be accepted by the Democrats since their raison d'etre is government's endless expansion?

The history of the use of traffic clogging by the politicians of New Jersey and New York needs to be examined.

Hear Juan Williams’ take on it? Fox News Sunday. He made it sound like it’s a Republican problem-that it’s gonna show how ‘mean’ the zzTea Party types are. What a joje.

I strongly suspect that the Christie-Ft. Lee event was not the first.

He’s a Dem RAT RINO....let em feast on him.
As long as he doesn’t get the GOP nomination, they can turn him inside out and turn him a donut. Rats eating rats.

The difference between Democrats and Republicans. Republicans hold republicans accountable, Democrats do nothing and make excuses and blame everyone else.

There’s still an out for Christie. He could switch parties. If he survives the gop can say “this is what the rats do”. Will the rats stand up for him? Probably not. But then he can turn further left. The ‘temperament’ question could disappear more easily-memories are shott.

Sure. It happened on his watch - impeach him.
Using the IRS to attack political enemies happened on Barack's watch. Impeach him (at least fire some folks and put them in jail).

it means if causing a traffic jam is an impeachable offense, allowing Americans to die undefended and covering it up and using the IRS to persecute political opponents is definitely impeachable

Too me? One more waste of space out of the way.
The MSM maybe attacking him but in the end they really wanted him to be the candidate because they knew that consevatives would not vote for him.
This may keep him out of the picture and we may be able to get a decent American as the GOP nominee.

Oh I don’t agree with that at all. Neither side holds their own accountable. Too many scum on both sides.

Tempest in a teapot [so far] - if there’s nothing else to it, its a non-starter ...

However, the douchebags that did do it need some serious jail time ...

Anyone that thinks the media and the Democrats will hold a Democrat to the same standards that apply to Republicans, RINO or otherwise, must have slept through the last 50 years of politics.

I don’t follow the Christie fiasco. As far as i’m concerned our fed govt has gotten away with a lot more. Let the media and the D’rats rip him to shreds. As far as I know, conservatives never chose him anyway. Get rid of him...more room for Cruz to take the spotlight.

It means he gets impeached as a Republican, switches to Democrat and makes a successful primary run for President. This is the kind of thing that is a “badge of honor” for a Democrat...Jennifer Flowers didn’t hurt Clinton. Immorality and illegality are sought after traits found in all successful Democrats...Christie will fit right in.

Ya. Good point. Just that Republicans are a little less scummy. I can think of many Democrats who are still respected by the party. For example, Bill Clinton.
