Posted on 01/10/2014 7:39:25 PM PST by Kaslin
ABC's Nightline let New Jersey Democrats pile on the Chris Christie controversy and take shots at the Republican governor, on Friday's show. Anchor Dan Harris hyped the nasty gossip and asked if Christie's political future was over.
"Democrats in Trenton, the state capitol, clearly see an opening," Harris touted. He added that "Democrats, including Christie's former opponent, Senator Barbara Buono regaled us with stories about the governor's alleged abusive behavior." [Video coming soon. Audio here.]
Harris also spoke with Democratic state senator Richard Codey and quoted Fort Lee's Democratic mayor Mark Sokolich, both of whom blasted Christie. Harris teed up Codey by asking if Gov. Christie was right in saying he wasn't a bully. Codey responded, "He is a bully. Simple as that. If you disagree with him, he's going to get you and he's going to stamp you out and he's going to seek revenge."
Buono was Christie's Democratic opponent in November's election, and Harris gave her the opportunity to cut down Christie. "She says one time after she publicly criticized him several years ago, she was never allowed into a meeting with him again, even though she was the senate majority leader."
Harris even borrowed a juicy Christie story from the 2012 election memoir "Double Down":

I’m surprised this came out as early as it did. I would have expected they would have held on to this when and if he had the nomination. Unless the dems thought he was shoo in and figure there’s nobody else out there...
Did Christie shut down that bridge by trying to walk across it without his ‘wide load’ Tee-shirt on?
What’s the maximum weight capacity for that bridge anyway?
Certainly no one in the Tea Party could have seen this coming.
Watch this blow up more and more everyday like Christies waist until he either is forced to resign or they bring charges against him. Meanwhile Obama and Hitlery are asked if they are still friends after Benghazi.
LOL! Sounds like they are describing Zero.
Good riddance to Fat Bastard Christie!
I hope he abuses dims every chance he gets.
Or maybe he fell on his sword for a greater cause. A supposed Republican Presidential Candidate suddenly caught in a huge scandal. Notice they always refer to him as a Republican while covering this story. It’s the same message over and over associating Republican with scandal. How many more times has this incident been covered versus the IRS scandal??
Maybe I’m looking into it too much but it looks like its being used to pull attention away from all the other crap hitting the fan from this administration and putting it on the Republicans. Trying to increase that dismal approval rating.
>> Good riddance to Fat Bastard Christie!
That’s how I feel. Maybe the enemedia is doing us an unintentional favor.
I DO NOT WANT that fat new jersey amnesty-loving faggot-loving abortion-loving gun-hating sack of crap running for POTUS.
May he spontaneously combust, for all I care.
While I am enjoying the spectacle of the hypocritical media and their skewering of Christie, every single Conservative candidate should study this episode very close and learn. You will have to do interviews but never forget that the media is your enemy. Let down you guard for one second and they will pounce. Give them anything, even a misspoken word and they will destroy you. Their goal is to elect liberals, Democrat or Republican but mainly Democrats and they will do anything short of murder to achieve that goal.
It’s ironic that all the RINOs and moderates are running for tall grass
instead of running to defend Christie. And what about all his democrat
friends that he says he works so well with? Where are they?
He isn’t Ronald Reagan. He is more of a fat-ass, vindictive Ronald McDonald.
The fat slob has no one to blame but himself. He’s the one that helped Obama to a second term by embracing him after hurricane Sandy, all for his own political gain. Now, he gets to reap what sowed.
>> He isnt Ronald Reagan... more of a...Ronald McDonald.
You watch, though. Defenders of Krispy will soon appear, en masse, right here on FR.
Where’s that “My give a damn is busted” graphic when you really need it?
Well good. I don’t care who makes 100% sure he doesn’t run in 2016. Let ‘em pile on.
Times are interesting right now, that’s for sure.
Ordinarily, the Democrats and their lapdog media would be pumping Christie up for the GOP nomination and only start to trash him once he gets it.
However, with the situation on ObamaCare being so damning, and the real indicators with the economy (the ones that really matter) being so bad, the HAVE to do something that will have legs and get everyone’s minds off how screwed we all are.
Christie is it. It’s his turn in the barrel.
Well, I’m not one of them. I am actually glad that the Democrats and Media are taking this fata$$ out of the picture. The Tea Party and conservatives won’t have to spend money to keep him off the slate.
You got it. It is a political attack on all Republicans.
From the emails I have read so far, no Bridge lanes were shutdown.
It appears that three bridge lanes re reallocated from local access traffic to thru traffic.
Keep in mind that the RNC gave money to Christie's campaign to boost his numbers in an assured win, and starved Cuccinelli's which might've won with that financial support.
I'm all for anything that opens the road to the nomination for TedCruz and those who stand by him.
