Mika: 'We Know Chris Christie And We Know He Would Have Known'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 01/14/2014 6:07:28 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

With a "personal friend" like Mika Brzezinski, Chris Christie doesn't need enemies. Yesterday and again today, the Morning Joe co-host insisted that the media's focus needed to be exclusively on Christie and the bridge matter, and that any discussion of President Obama's involvement with the IRS, Benghazi and other scandals was a "distraction."

Today, relying on her personal relationship with Christie, Mika took things a giant step further, declaring "we know Chris Christie and we know he would have known." Mika was in effect claiming that Christie lied when he said at his marathon press conference that he had only very recently learned that his aides had ordered the bridge closures.

....the list is almost endless....

“With a “personal friend” like Mika Brzezinski, Chris Christie doesn't need enemies”

Both Joe and Mika have said many times that they are close friends with Chris Christy.

Christy betrayed the conservatives who initially got him elected to be close to the Obama Administration and the MSM. He lectured conservatives against taking extreme positions.

How do you like your new friends Chris?

Now couldn't this rewritten version also be true Mika????

The Christie thing is a temporary distraction, will eventually get knocked off the air by the coming Obamacare problems.

I don’t mind the Libs going after Christie. They’re actually helping us Conservatives by carrying the water on this. When we get to the 2016 primaries the focus can be on opposing Christie because he’s a hateful, vengeful and vindictive bully, not that he’s a RINO. Doing so will help prevent the media and Dems from inciting an ideological deathmatch that results in a weakened GOP nominee.

So.... Christie had the bridge closed... and all they did was close it, and not do any work on it ?

This all seems preposterous. Contracts to do repair work like this aren't scheduled at the whim of politicians.

For communists like Mika, it’s party uber alles.

Republicans are are busy carving out their individual niche, trying to advance their personal interests.

The Democrats are at war with Republicans. To the Democrats, nothing is off limits when fighting Republicans and advancing the cause.

Somehow, I doubt Chris Christie really understands the lesson he is being given.

If I were to drive up to the Mackinaw bridge today I can pretty much count on at least a partial closure of at least 1 lane.

Only an idiot would believe that those closures all require the go ahead from the governor and we only have a few major bridges in Michigan as compared to the east coast.

Just ask any governor in this country what lanes are shut down on what bridges in his or her state and I guarantee that not 1 will be able to tell you.

We know Obama would have known about the IRS oppressing conservatives

Obama ordered the IRS to oppress and audit American citizen conservatives and Republicans: yet the media and government say that is not news. This affected the election as the IRS didn’t allow 500 conservative groups to form in time for the election. so Obama rigged the last election. and still the IRS is oppressing conservatives. We don’t live in a free country anymore

this is just one out of thousands of abuses of Power this socialist tyrant Obama has committed. If Palin or a Republican were president the media would have drummed them out of office for a number of fake scandals by now

I have a question.

If Chris Christie ‘ordered’ this bridge closure, then how would his ‘opponent’ get blamed for it? It would appear his ‘opponent’ cannot and did not order it closed, so... ?

Having finished her tirade against Christie, Mika said, “…but Joe, rather than continuing to denigrate Christie I’;d like to tell the audience more about my magnificent breasts. Thy are still very pert and lovely and I think we should devote an entire show to them since I know so many people are interested in them. They are so lovely I just can’t resist caressing them myself…………..”

In a normal state, not only would a governor not know about lane closures but his top aides would have not ordered lane closures for political reasons as was very clearly the case here. Of course, we are talking about New Jersey....

Agreed. The traffic lane closings temporarily affected thousands in the N.Y.-N.J. area. Obamacare is and will continue to negatively affect millions throughout the nation, not for a few hours, days or weeks but on a permanent basis.

I don’t mind the Libs going after Christie. They’re actually helping us Conservatives by carrying the water on this. When we get to the 2016 primaries the focus can be on opposing Christie because he’s a hateful, vengeful and vindictive bully, not that he’s a RINO. Doing so will help prevent the media and Dems from inciting an ideological deathmatch that results in a weakened GOP nominee.

Excellent analysis. Although the leftmedia is transparent in their attempt to (a) destroy Christie's political career and, (b) deflect public attention from Obama's screw-ups, a damaged Chris Christie will be much easier to defeat and give a true conservative a shot at the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. The GOP establishment was banking on Christie as their 'compromise' candidate, now they'll have to look at Jeb Bush, who is a non-starter.

If anyone were trying to harm anyone, I would think someone on Christie’s staff was trying to harm Christie.

Ask Thadeus McCotter how that works. His own staffers set out to destroy him and did. They committed election fraud and cost him a slot on the ballot and today they’re facing charges.

I don’t have any use for Christie but my sense of right and wrong doesn’t allow me to behave like a liberal and help the left. Call it tempting God or tempting fate but I fear this will come back to bite us hard.

_________________________________________________________

Therein lies the problem.

There was no ‘repair’ work.
There was no notice given about the lane closures.
No one on NJ side of Port Authority would say why lanes closed or when they would reopen.
It was someone on the NY side of the bridge who reopened the lanes.

I have no idea if CC knew about the bridge. But I do believe that CC has portrayed himself as ‘tough’ and it sounds like in NJ...they play rough politics.

The problems I have re CC don’t stem from this issue. But I will also add, that I’m not too excited about politicians abusing their power for political purposes...and making thousands of citizens pay the price.

I agree - I think the much bigger IRS scandal is tied as closely to Obama as the bridge thing is to Christie.

However, I am still happy to see Christie taken down a notch for the following reasons: (1) he is the preferred candidate of the Rove crowd; (2) he selfishly scheduled the special election to replace Lautenberg for the purpose of benefiting himself even though it had to have hurt the chances of the GOP candidate running against Booker; (3) he is pro-amnesty; (4) IMHO, there’s no way he would be elected president because most Americans are going to find him too obnoxious, so I would rather not be saddled with him as the GOP nominee; (5) he went out of his way to make Obama look good after Sandy in the run-up to the presidential election and pushed for a pork-laden Sandy relief bill; (6) he gave a really lame speech at the Republican convention; and (7) the fact that a man with the job flexibility and support that comes with being a governor still cannot get a grip on his weight speaks, again just in my personal opinion, to insecurities and/or an absence of discipline that I don’t want to see in the WH.

Morning Jerk.

Therefore, since we “know” you are guilty, that is adequate proof.

The depth to which we have gone under the Libs.

Don’t like Christie, don’t want him nominated, but he has been a decent governor here - the best in years.

What you are seeing now - a near total news black out of the slimely CRIMES perpetrated by Obama and his fellow thugs in Washington by the mainstream media, while focussing on what is essentially a tempest in a teapot, will be repeated with the NEXT GOP Presidential Wanna-be, and the NEXT one.

It is a repeat of what happened in the GOP Primary, only much earlier, and more effective.

Its scarey and I hope it blows up in their faces because it is SO transparent and SO overdone.

re: an ideological deathmatch that will weaken the GOP. If the RINOs and anti-US citizen globalists want to weaken the GOP by forcing candiates such as Christie (and Romney and McCain) or Jeb Bush or Paul Ryan or another backstabbing sellout, they'll get a GOP that no longer exists.

The RNC, Chamber of Commerce and their fellow travelers are the ones who've been caught....propping up the likes of Christie...and it's time for them to fold and let Ted Cruz and those who stand by him take the lead. Otherwise, there is no Republican Party.

Hillary lied before Congress and obama lied to the people about some stupid video and then jetted off to Vegas. The man has no soul. He and Hillary couldn’t care less about the people who serve our country. Their CYA went as far as arresting the maker of the video which had nothing to do with the terror attack.

This is all great for Christy in such that it gets his name out in the national news to low information voters who otherwise would not have a clue who he is. Even Tokyo Rove is promoting the turd stating how TEA party types will admire him for his honesty (tell a lie enough times...). The whole lane closure thing will soon be forgotten but the press coverage is golden for fat boy. Add Governor Martinez to the ticket to draw the Hispanic vote and the GOPe have their RINO 2016 game plan.
