The Wall Street Journal ^ | January 9, 2014 | Associated Press

WASHINGTON — House Speaker John Boehner says he believes Chris Christie remains a serious contender for the Republican 2016 presidential nomination, despite the traffic jam scandal engulfing the New Jersey governor.

Reporters asked Boehner about Christie's problems on Thursday, even as the governor was holding a news conference in Trenton, N.J.

This isn’t an “engulfing scandal” .....no one here is really reporting on it and it’s already being supplanted by the latest rantings of Rodman and/or the polar vortex.

The election is 2+ years away and Christie fired the person responsible. Not knowing what your underlings are doing seems to be a pre-requisite for the presidency if Obama is any benchmark.

Besides, Christie will run - but he will not get the nomination.

Chris Christie remains a serious contende

Of course he does. The backroom deals between the DNC, GOP and MSM have already been worked out and set into motion. Christie is the choice for the guy who will pretend to try and defeat Hillary.

Christie: responsible for (childish) political retaliation which resulted in great public inconvenience and possible death - still a candidate

Palin: appeared awkward in a hostile interview set up by an incompetent campaign staff - not a candidate

And they wonder why they’re losing.

This is the kind of weapons-grade stupid that helps run the Republican Party these days. People talk about wanting the Tea Party to take it over. Why?

Why is bonehead even bothering about this? Now?

Where's the Select Committee on Benghazi?

This clown needs to be fired NOW.

They’ll cross that bridge when they get to it, but I have a feeling that Kristie Kreme will find all lanes to the WH CLOSED to him.

Christie is a GOP diversion for lefties to pick on. They will pick on everything and everything - let’s see if they get as far as aligning Camden, New Jersey with Detroit.

BTW....on Christie’s assertion that he didn’t know about the traffic incident....

Any cursory investigation of his staff in regards to the bridge lane closures would have revealed the e-mails and their culpability in the matter.

Christie did not investigate the allegations that his staff was involved in the bridge lane closures.

Christie did not investigate the allegations because he didn’t want to know the truth.

Christie didn’t want to know, because he already knew...Christie himself was behind the bridge lane closures. ANYONE who thinks or says otherwise is either extremely naive, or lying...either-or—pick one.

Add to everything you said about Christie's denials being illogical:

If Christie were a leader that cared about people, his response to his staff "not being responsible" would've been "then find out who IS responsible and get those lanes opened".

So even if we believe him (barf alert) he demonstrated that he doesn't give a damn about people.

At BEST, Christie is an incompetent....someone who would be ill suited for POTUS if he has people working for him who are not under his control.

Amazing, isn't it? We've got a dead Ambassador along with three other citizens in Benghazi and all the media can do is run interference for Shrillary about it. We've got Obamalamadouchebag personally responsible for millions losing their health insurance and all the media can do is shrug and say that's the breaks. But they have all the time and energy in the world to go after this poor sap because of a traffic jam? Can we really say anymore that this isn't a world gone stark, staring mad?

Didn't work in Nixon's case.

He chose a path bad for him but good for the Nation...something B. Hussein obama will never do..

Nixon’s underlings concerns about liberal thugs were legitimate.

Christie was never going to lose the Governor’s race and his team panders to illegals and shuts down a bridge. Who is he trying to win over? MS13

And Boehner proves yet again why he’s unfit to legislate.

Thanks again Ohio.

Since when does anybody except the Dems think Crispy is a serious contender for President? This is totally media driven.
