Christie’s Waterloo
NY Daily News ^ | 1/8/13 | NY Daily News Editorial Board

Posted on 01/08/2014 5:54:15 PM PST by jimbo123

In the best possible light, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie built a top staff of lying thugs who threatened lives and safety to serve his political ends. If not, Christie is a lying thug himself.

Emails and text messages among his close aides made public Wednesday documented that in September they gleefully engineered George Washington Bridge lane closures to punish the Democratic mayor of Fort Lee for failing to endorse their boss’ reelection.

Local officials say the gridlock they caused delayed ambulances in responding to four calls, including one involving an unconscious 91-year-old woman who later died.

Christie should resign as Chairman of the Republican Governors Association immediately.

All of this is coming from Hillary’s minnions. That said, we needed to get Christie out of the way, so the Hillary goons have done us a favor.

Let Christie join the jackass party. He’s as principled as a Democrat. What he did to help President Zero to get reelected is inexcusable.

yep. Jeb was a good governor here in FL, but no way on another Bush presidency. The last two have led to Clinton and Obama. I liked much about GWB, but his second term was a complete disaster. No more.

Sure, Christie is toast but Obama can outright sick the IRS on political opponents and he still walks on water.

Not likely. I would not vote for Christie in the primaries, but if he is the Republican nominee, I will vote for him in the general. Too many people stayed home in 2012 and we are suffering terribly because of it.

This is one of the problems common with blue state Republicans. They tend to be just as petty, vindictive, and corrupt as the Dems that they supplant. That’s the only game they know.

Notice how Obama is such a stand up guy, helping his new friend.

Hey, Christie you tried to buddy up with the Democrats and the MSM.

How do you like your new friends now?

If we are suffering, it’s hard for me to argue that we don’t deserve it. America made its bed, now it gets to lie in it.

I'm sure that 99% of Americans agree with you on that. Having 41 and 43 as presidents so close together in time, was already spooky enough. Gonna be a long time before that ever happens again.

I am not a Christie supporter but I don’t see much difference in this and what Obama did during the government shutdown. Just a little hypocrisy on the medias part.

And Reince Priebus and Karl Rove cut off campaign funds to Ken Cuccinelli in the last days of his race and diverted those dollars to Christie and his band of thugs and cronies.

I am absolutely no fan of Chris Christie, but I do wonder that after Fast and Furious, Solyndra, IRS, NSA, Obamacide lies, Benghazi and God knows how many other scandals, why have we not seen an article entitled “Obama’s Waterloo?”

If the GOP passes amnesty, you will be about the only GOP voter at the polls, because the rest of us will either be sitting out or looking for another party to join.
