New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, after a low-key initial response to Fridays explosive allegations about his involvement in a bridge-closing scandal, mounted an aggressive defense late Saturday afternoon, attacking The New York Times and a former political ally in an email to friends and allies obtained by POLITICO. Bottom line David Wildstein will do and say anything to save David Wildstein, the email from the governors office says, referring to the former appointee who reignited the controversy.

Attack, counterattack, over and over until somebody gives up.
I hope he likes his new friends.
agree...say what you want about Christie but I wish the rest of the pu$$y’s in the GOPe showed half the fight...
Why was it that the New York Times (AND Drudge, the NY Post, etc.) all went with a headline that wasn't supported by the information contained within their stories. Are ALL news editors that lazy? (At least the NY Times changed their headline.)
The truth: He could have been elected. The left knows that and is very afraid of him. So they did what they do the best: get out all their troops to destroy him.

Trying to play the game on their terms will only get you screwed.
It’s Jersey bro. It will be a death match. This is what we do here.
I don’t like Crispy Christie.... but if he comes through this... you gotta take a look at him just for his ability to battle the press and win. That is THE MAJOR PROBLEM the repub party has. They can’t EVER out duel the press.
He lost brought his loss on himself. He lost when he pranced hand in hand down the beach with Obama... just days before a very important election.
you gotta take a look at him just for his ability to battle the press and win.
His battling the press is exactly what they want, to keep the issue before the public. Never pick a fight with a guy who owns more ink then you do used to be the axiom.

“The truth: He could have been elected.”
Can you name the last anti-gun Republican was elected POTUS?
There never has been one. G.H.W.Bush doesn’t count because he didn’t trash the NRA until he was running for reelection and was given the boot for that.
Fat ass Christie is big time anti-gun and pro queer marriage. There is no way he could win!
Just another corrupt politician.
Your link is either bad or the story was pulled.
He’s a northeast RINO; LOSER!!!!!
glad to see him out the presidential picture
Like him or not, hes a talented politician. Too bad I don’t trust him to do what is best for the country.
Well, Mr. Fat Lying Jerk, as another FReeper suggested, why don’t you release the bids and the contract for the legitimate traffic study and prove to all your sayers of nay that your are in fact telling the truth about the necessary nature of that study, and it’s results of course.
Shouldn’t be hard to produce those docs, amIright?
I don’t have to look at him at all for anything.
“you gotta take a look at him just for his ability to battle the press and win.”
Newt is another one that is pretty good at it.
To be honest, I don’t like that the press is making an all out scandal over something their side does all the time with impunity. I don’t like how all of Obama’s violations of the law and the constitution go uncomented on, by both parties. However, I think Christy is going to get through this with his power base intact, if not increased. I was and still am furious at Christy for chumming up to Obama back in 2012. When this Bridge-Gate started, I was somewhat happy to see him being publicly dissed and slapped around by his ‘new friends’ the socialists and progressives that Christy had betrayed us for. He knows he is in trouble and could lose everything. Christy sees what has happened to Bob McDonnell former Governor of Virgina, who got punished for taking gifts, just as most other Governors do. I’ve never seen Christy look so serious and introspective. Still, though, he does not hide. I think this Acid-Bath-Baptism experience has
punished Christy enough. We still need his skills on our side, until someone of similar potential breaks through.
I don’t like him either but I do notice how extreme the attacks are when it’s against somebody that the left thinks might be a real challenge to whomever they have declared as their candidate. The GOP is not much better. Look at how all of them attacked West. They couldn’t allow a Conservative black to challenge obama. Look how viciously they attacked Sara Palin. They were not nearly as vicious to Mitt Romney. They have to destroy Christie because he would be too strong against Clinton. Just my opinion. They can’t take the chance that any Conservatives will vote for him out of desperation either. They have met their match with Christie though. If there is something he’s not it’s weak and a quitter.
Maybe Wildstein just isn’t willing to take one for the team. :-)
My bad. Thanks.

Got that right. This bridge thing has been in the top headlines every day for what, three weeks now?
Electrons are cheaper than ink, and they are erasable.
