He may be funny on TV, but he is NOT presidential. And his policies suck!

Even if miraculously he gets to be the GOP nominee, he is not going to win if Clinton runs, which I'm sure she will.


He's not presidential? Two people have been removed from the PA over the traffic jam-which is TWO MORE PEOPLE than have been removed over the debacle we call Obamacare. (You know, the 650 million dollar website that doesn't work, the millions losing the insurance they were told they could keep, yadda yadda).

Please try to figure out what Presidential means to you outside partisan politics, lol. And while polls change, right now Christie is ahead of Mrs. Clinton. And the press won't give Mrs. Clinton a pass the way they did Obama. Lots of time for Benghazi information to come out.

Yup, real desperate. Did you miss the November election? The 'Christie-yites' you mention were black, white, latino, male, female, rich, poor-in fact, his appeal extended across gender, race, economic status, and most importantly political party.

The sheeple trying to make a mountain out of a small traffic jam are the same people (like State Senator Nia Gill) who are trying to shift blame from Obama for 800,000 NJ residents losing the healthcare he promised they could keep, to Christie for not setting up a NJ program (which was part of the 'settled law' featured in Obamacare).



My prediction on Christie surviving GOP primaries: ZERO

Brewster, you're spot on in your critique of the PA. I'm a Christie supporter, but if asked to note how I think he's underperformed it's in the area of reining in the PA. I wish he'd go after them the same way he's gone after smaller patronage mills such as the Passaic Valley Sewerage Authority and the Delaware River Port Authority. Cuomo and he should throw those bastids on the frying pan and sweat them out a bit.

As spot on as your are about the Port Authority, you're dead wrong about Benghazi, especially if people are trying to make a 'gate' about a traffic jam in comparison-on any level.

The attempts to create a "gate" type scandal out of the tragic events in Bengazi just illustrate how desperate the right is for something to hang on Obama that isn't something a GOP president would have doubled down on, like drones, NSA etc.

The PA scandal on the other hand is just business as usual for a thoroughly corrupt dysfunctional agency coming to light. Christie's pal was just more sloppy than most. The PA should be broken up like Ma Bell was, it has no business running railroads or building commercial office buildings. At least Robert Moses's empire disintegrated when he retired, the PA just grinds on.

Fast forward to the 2016 debates. Just imagine the questions-Governor Christie, how do you respond to allegations that you ignored a traffic jam that one of your appointees caused? 'What difference does it make?'

Secretary of State Clinton, how do you respond to allegations you did nothing to prevent the murder of a US Ambassador, could not identify where you were or what you did during and after the attack, and helped cover up the aftermath? 'What difference does it make?'

Which action carries more gravitas, and reflects worse upon the candidate?



It really takes zero imagination to figure out where you get your news from.


What did I say that wasn't factual, lol? Has the NYTimes interviewed ANY of the dozens and dozens of staff that were attacked in Benghazi, including those injured in the attack who still suffer from their injuries?

Of course, a minor traffic jam (not dissimilar to those caused when Governor Corzine had the Lincoln Tunnel closed when he drove into Manhattan for booty calls with his now wife, then girlfriend) is of more interest to the faded Grey Lady than a cover up of a murdered US Ambassador. Sadly, the NYTimes will end up like MSNBC and other looney left faux news outlets.

Too bad you don't have Martin Bashir or Alec Baldwin jumping all over this non story!

A massive traffic jam on the George
Washington Bridge is "beginning to look
suspiciously connected" to one of New
Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's (R) political
feuds, according to a column in the New
York Times.

The column Tuesday on the alleged "New
Jersey Traffic Conspiracy" noted two of
the three access lanes allowing drivers
from Fort Lee, N.J. onto the bridge to
New York were closed last summer
shortly after the town's Democratic
mayor, Mark Sokolich, declined to
endorse Christie's re-election bid.
Sokolich has indicated he believes his
lack of support for Christie led to the
traffic jam, which the column said
temporarily turned his town into a
"parking lot."

At a hearing on Monday, the column said
several witnesses indicated they share
Sokolich's suspicions, including Patrick
Foye, who is the executive director of the
agency Port Authority of New York & New
Jersey, which oversees the bridge. Foye
was appointed by New York Gov. Andrew
Cuomo (D).

The Times column said bridge workers
were told the lane closures were caused
by a non-existent "traffic study" and Foye
said it was ordered by David Wildstein, a
Port Authority official and longtime
Christie confidante. Wildstein announced
on Friday he will resign from Port
Authority effective Jan. 1. According to
the column, Christie denied he played
any role in the lane closures and called
the theory politics played a role "crazy."
