MSMNC has become the (destroy) Christie channel which is ironic since they were promoting him most of last year.,

So blocking a lane on a bridge is a Federal crime now?

Where are the Federal subpoena for Benghazi ? IRS anti 501c’s ? Fast and Furious ? New Black Panther voter intimidation ? Unsecured borders ? Stealth release of terrorist enemies ? Precipitous pull out (surrender) from Iraq ? secret unauthorized negotiations with Iran and the Taliban ? & on & on & on ...

In Obama's America, just asking that question probably is.

Nice list, great questions. But remember, Odumbo said, “...Not even a smidgen of corruption.”

Because this needs to be repeated often and without ceasing.

The hypocrisy is mind-blowing and incredible.

"So blocking a lane on a bridge is a Federal crime now?"

If the bridge was at least partially built with federal funds then I'm sure there's a way Holder can make this a federal case.

Recently in LA an unsuccessful rock band blocked up a freeway with a bus (sideways) and did an impromptu concert on top of the bus. They were tried and convicted because they caused the blockage on purpose just like Christie is alleged to have done.

There were all sorts of people saying how horrible it was what the band had done. How many people were just then rushing their wives to hospitals to give birth to their children? How many ambulances were just then on their way to bring a critical patient to ER? How many doctors were just then rushing to the hospital to perform lifesaving surgery?

Of course the answer was probably a very small number. And the same question could be asked when the freeway was clogged up even worse from a careless accident or a broken down car or just one of those freak incidents where the traffic comes to a stop for no apparent reason.

So I personally do not get my knickers in a bunch when I find out that some frat boys or sucky rock band shut down the freeway on a dare or for some promotional reason, because I know that the number of such incidents pales in comparison to the daily stoppages caused by a**holes, incompetents, drivers of POS's, and the inattentive. But since there's no one to sue or charge in such cases we have to suffer without being avenged.

The woman who died on her way to hospital in NJ will be avenged. Christie is toast.

Good News: At no time in the future will we be cajoled by our fellow Freepers to please hold our noses and vote for Christie because at least he's better than Hillary.

Bad News: The same cannot yet be said regarding Jeb.

It's too early for polling, and too early to tell what the idiots who call themselves Republican will do when they vote early because it's convenient and their kids have soccer practice on election day and ...

Then maybe those idiots go out and vote for the one guy whose name they can remember.

MSNBC will be happy when Elizabeth Warren is the Republican candidate. Anyone a centimeter to the right will be destroyed.

It’s probably also that the bridge in question has one foot in NJ and the other in NY.

Christie’s noy my pick, either. But, as my grandkids say, “For real”?

The dems were clear in their intention to derail Christie to clear the field away for Hillary. Once Christie’s stature has been sufficiently diminished beyond hope, they’ll quietly drop the charges.

“Bad News: The same cannot yet be said regarding Jeb.”

Not to worry.. the dems’ smear machine has a special personalized attack package for every single potential GOP contender.

No kidding.

Even if he caused a traffic jamb, is that a FEDERAL offense?

Hardly.

The Overlord of Obama’s KGB can do anything he wants or not do anything he wants, apparently, and get away with it.

When are the Americans left going to take their country back from these leftists?

They promoted him because they knew the TEA party didn't. Once he started poling well against the beast, they had to destroy him. He's toast and needs to just go away.

Personally I could care less about fatso.....he’s a control freak and I find it hard to believe he didn’t know about this......just my opinion. If this were a democrat we would be going ballistic. As far as I’m concerned he’s on his own!!!
