Christie, 51, leads the Republican Governors Association and South Carolina Gov.

So. We are seeing now with this news from Rudy, and the recent revelations that BIG BUSINESS and the rest of the GOPe are more concerned about their potential to make money, get or keep the power of second-tier governance, and to go-along-get-along appease to people and groups they KNOW are pure evil so that their lives of ease and abundance can be more tranquil.

Just ducky....see if I EVER vote for an appeasing RINO again. I really don’t care if they lose whatever power they may have. I’d rather have enemies that always act like enemies.

Exactly. Karl Rove, Reince Priebus and Jeb Bush are probably more upset about this turn of events than anyone else. Their stalking horse is toast.

It figures that Rootie Ghouliani would stick up for the anti-gun slob.

I agree that Christie is receiving far more attention for misuse of government power than Obama has received for any of his abuses. However, that said, I still think Christie must either have known or suspected that there was some truth to the charges. And even if he didn’t, instead of joking about it, he should have launched an investigation immediately. I guess he thought that as a FOO (Friend of Obama’s, replacing FOB - Friend of Bill’s) he was safe.

I think he’s unethical and self-obsessed, and I don’t think we need to present a candidate who is essentially a fat white Obama-clone.

But aside from that, I think Giuliani (who was ethical, no matter what) is doing exactly what Cardinal O’Connor did when the unfortunate stories emerged about Fr. Bruce Ritter: he is treating that person with too much respect and honor, simply because he himself is an honorable person and cannot believe that anybody who reports to him or respects him would lie to him.

I always thought that Bruce Ritter’s lies destroyed O’Connor. I hope Christie’s lies don’t destroy Giuliani. Yeah, I know Giuliani had marital problems, but that doesn’t make him evil...and in addition his wife was a liberal who set out to destroy him.

I’m not buying any of this crap....Christie is a hard hitting control freak...there’s no way IMHO he did not know about this. I refuse to believe he is not in complete control of his minions. If I had to surmise what took place I would say he said get the bastard but make damn sure if you get caught that there is no path back to me!!! This is what New Jersey thugs do....same as Chicago thugs!!!

Let’s put it this way.... The Mainstream Media is hyperventilating over a traffic jam?

If only they were as concerned about the gridlock in the halls of Congress in Washington, D.C. as they are about the gridlock on the George Washington Bridge.

To my knowledge, no one has been fired for the hundreds of deaths in Fast & Furious, the 4 deaths in the Benghazi terrorist attack, the IRS scandal, the NSA scandal or the ObamaCare debacle. No one.

But by golly, the Mainstream Media and Democrats are getting their pound of flesh over bumper-to-bumper traffic over the Hudson River.

They? Rudy is just one. Where are all the other Rino’s, moderates
and GOP Governors? Where are all those NJ Democrats that Christie
says he has worked with?

That’s because, in many ways, Rudy is Christie’s identical ideological twin.

Liberals aka RINO’s have no such trait as loyalty and honor. Bush, Rove and the other bottom dwellers are not about to take a stand on anything their democrat overlords do not support and for some unknown reason they are afraid of Christie. Only them and God knows why because if he is the GOP nominee we are in for a monumental ass kicking in 2016.

With Christie GOP nomination the GOP would be spending millions just trying to secure SOME of the bases vote. But alas yes the GOPe is that stupid.

Rudy’s political career is over, I am not sure why it would be a mistake to stand with his fellow Northeastern RINO

All political theatre. If Christie was so horrid to New Jerseyans how did he trounce Barbara Buono?

If he cares about his reputation... perhaps he doesn’t.
