RUSH: After the president met with Pope Francis, Il Papa, he then went over to the Villa Madama, the headquarters of the Italian prime minister, Matteo Renzi. They had a joint press conference that was interrupted. The cable nets actually cut away from this for news about Governor Christie. I kid you not. Here is what we got of Obama's joint presser (not all of it, but some of it) with the Italian prime minister, Matteo Renzi.
OBAMA: My day started with the great honor of meeting His Holiness, Pope Francis. I've been incredibly moved by his compassion, his message of inclusion. Uh, I was grateful to have, uh, the opportunity to speak with him about the responsibilities that we all share to care for "the least of these," uh, the poor, uh, the excluded. Uh, and --
RUSH: The excluded?
OBAMA: Uh, you know, I was --
RUSH: Who the hell is excluded?
OBAMA: I was, uh, extremely moved by his insights about, uh, the importance, uh, of us all having, uh, a moral perspective on world problems and not simply thinking in terms of our own narrow self-interests.
RUSH: Come on, is anybody buying? He doesn't believe that. It's all about him. Anyway, Obama was moved by "the excluded." By the way, you know, I think that one person applauding in that previous sound bite was probably the White House pool reporter. I think I figured it out. The White House pool reporter is who was applauding.
Anyway, they cut away from this to go to the office of the firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. Attorney Randy Mastro, the lawyer hired by Governor Christie to review Bridgegate, held a press conference to discuss their findings.
MASTRO: In connection with allegations related to the George Washington Bridge realignment, we found that Governor Christie had no knowledge beforehand of this George Washington Bridge realignment idea and that he played no role whatsoever in that decision or the implementation of it.
MASTRO: We further found --
MASTRO: -- no evidence --
MASTRO: -- that anyone in the governor's office besides Bridget Kelly --
RUSH: Who's gone.
MASTRO: -- knew of this idea in advance --
RUSH: That's right.
MASTRO: -- or played any role in the decision or the implementation of it.
RUSH: Okay. So the firm that Governor Christie hired to investigate himself has cleared him of any wrongdoing. Great news for the Democrats. Great news for Democrats. But they cut away from the Obama presser for it. Yes, you heard me right. You heard me right. (chuckling) Yes!
Read the title wrong. Thought Christie Bridgegate was a porn star...
From a wimp to a blimp.
Good thing O.J. wasn’t driving a white van, or Christie would be left in the dust too.
Nobody with an IQ above a rock missed anything because it was the same all over, lies, lies, lies.
The danger is that this nonsense works; nationally the Christie “scandal” (I’ve maintained since Day 1 that this was a fabricated scandal and that Christie was clean) is staying alive while little mention is made of the disasters Obama has wrought upon this country.
Come Novemeber, a segment of the population will cast ballots in the mid-term elections based solely on the (unrelated and completely fabricated) “Christie scandal”. Many Americans are very stupid, and while it sucks for many of us, that group deserves what they get.
Imagine if Harry Reid’s illegal campaign spending got the same coverage Christie got/gets for a staffer blocking traffic.
“MY money!!??!!?? YOURS???”
The elected leadership.
