BREAKING NEWS: Chris Christie innocent! The George Washing Bridge traffic jams were actually cause by public reaction to an anti-Islamic VIDEO!
What difference does it make?
I am being sarcastic.
Oh, that is good.
Christie: I was told it was a traffic study.
[lol. That’s a good one. Almost up there is the movie that caused the Benghazi attacks and you can keep your health plan.]
He is sounding like Obama right now. (I only found out about it when I heard it on the news.)
Sorry, I missed the exquisite sarcasm of YOUR post! Probably because you didn’t preface it with “At this point.... LOL! Good one!
I know that. But did you know I was being Hillary Clinton?
"He is sounding like Obama right now"
Perhaps a couple rogue agents in Ohio?
I realize more every day that he is not presidential material, contrary to what I used to think. Now, thanks to the Dems, we have a better chance to get a real conservative to run and win.
I’m not going to defend Christie but damn.
The idiots on MSNBC are already talking about whether he should be charged with murder.
This coming from the supporters of Obama who has left a trail of bodies in his wake.
“Oh, that was an accident but nobody was hurt!”
Sounds good to me. Let’s just say he is as innocent of wrongdoing as is Hillary and Obama in the Bengazi caper.
Cristie needs to lay off the Krispy Kremes. He looks like the poster child for pork barrel spending, literally.
A blimp and a wimp.
watching his “presser” on Fox . he dissed Romney ( at least that’s how I took it) when he said something to the effect of I’m no politician with blow dried hair and meticulously vetted.
He did great damage to the Romney campaign in its final days by palling around with Barak. Romney was certainly not my first choice but he would have been better than the disaster we have now. I will not vote for mr. Christie under any circumstances even if Satan ( perhaps HIllary) is the democratic nominee.
I would put my money on a Rove hatchet job myself, he has to destroy all the Republican "establishment" candidates, before the 2016 primaries to make room for Jeb Bush as THE establishment candidate. Then we will see a repeat of 2008 and 2012, where the conservative vote is split between 3 or 4 viable candidates so the "moderate" cruises to victory. (Hey it worked for them twice in a row, why not?)
"The presidents specific words: Im really good at killing people, "
Reporters don’t seem to be buying the ‘I didn’t know’ excuse.
[The traffic study excuse didn’t stick, either.]
[cue: Brenda Lee: I’m sorry. So sorry. That I was such a fool .... ]
That first report was in error! Actually, the traffic jam plan was the offspring of a Sunday School class infuriated after viewing the Da Vinci Code. It’s time these radical forces were STOPPED! Bob
A study of how many people could be inconvenienced or die.
Krispy, why didn’t you flap around WHILE the lanes were being closed?
I was having similar thoughts.
Whatever we FReepers want, the general buzz has been that the GOPe was going to run Krispy Kreme in 2016. So, of course, the left had their “SQUAD” on duty, searching emails, hard drives, memos, private communications, etc to find ANYTHING to take him out.
BTW, EVERY time I have EVER gone over the GW bridge, at least one lane is closed. How would this have been any different? It would never have been noticed if Kreme was not a GOPe favorite.
On the other hand, this helps clear the decks for a REAL Candidate!
Reporters are questioning his judgment in hiring these people and/or the culture or environment that would seemingly give them permission to instigate such a plan.
Christie responds that he only found out yesterday morning and, as a result, 2 people are now gone from his organization.
Actually, it was a spontaneous demonstration to the video that caused a couple of barricades to be put up, it then escalated to permanent barricades in the lanes. Christie was told about them and then no one knows where Christie was or what he was doing in those critical hours after the barricades went up.
If he had any hand in this whatsoever, he should resign.
Full report in tomorrow’s NYT?
And now the blame game begins:
Christie fires aide, apologizes for traffic jams
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie on Thursday apologized to his
constituents and said he was “embarrassed and humiliated” by his staff, one
day after emails and text messages revealed his administration may
have closed highway lanes to exact political retribution.
Christie also said he was firing Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Anne Kelly,
“because she lied to me.”
Say what you want about Christie, but that's two people more than were held accountable for Benghazi, IRS targeting of the Tea Party, seizing of AP reporter's phone records, NSA domestic spying, and the Obamacare disaster.
By that standard, nearly everyone in DC would have to resign.
A US ambassador is killed, sovereign US soil invaded, the NYT interviews the invaders, AND OBAMA DOES NOTHING?
Millions are going to lose HC insurance, and almost certainly someone is going to die as a result.
Fallujah is now occupied by Al Qaeda.
The IRS is used to suppress constitutionally protected speech by one party, and accelerates the ability of the other incumbent party to broadcast theirs, it turns an election, and nothing happens.
In fact, the guy who benefitted the most appoints one of his donors to lead the investigation.
All this proves is that Christie is stupid, which isn’t news. There have been brand new lows established in terms of who should and should not lose their jobs.
All you are doing is enforcing a double standard.
You would never, EVER, see the press going after Obama like this...
Gov. Crisco is doing a presser right now. He looks like a cornered hippopotamus. The stage is groaning.
Presidential material my foot, unless Big Media decides that it’s in Hillary’s interest that Christie survive this scandal.
Say what you want, but Christie is handling this pretty well. It’s refreshing to see a politician act this quickly and decisively. Unlike the current administration which would have lied, formed a committee to look into it, and then ultimately swept it under the rug. This does not mean that I agree with Christie on every issue. Just calling a spade a spade.
He is really pitbulling the traffic study.
Curious. IIRC, he never mentioned it until late into his apology or during the questioning. Now, it has become the basis of his excuse.
Awwwww. He’s sad.
He needs a hug.
Maybe Barry can stop by this afternoon and they can have a beer summit.
How long is this ‘protesting too much’ gonna go on?
Angry at the emails.
Until the media hounds can trip him up. He needs to end it.
I have noticed that the press is anxious to tie the RNC to this incident.
