Christie ‘outraged’ at bridge scandal
Washington Times, by Seth McLaughlin

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/8/2014 6:29:32 PM

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday he was “outraged” after learning — he said for the first time — that his administration purposely caused a traffic jam that clogged streets in a town at the foot of the George Washington Bridge into New York City as political payback against a mayor refuse to endorse him for re-election. Emails unearthed by NorthJersey.com contradicted Mr. Christie’s prior claims that his administration had nothing to do with the unfolding bridge scandal, and sent the tough-talking Republican into damage control. “What I’ve seen today for the first time is unacceptable,” he said in a late-afternoon

Comments:
He had better get used to this. The media turned on him. The only thing that surprises me is that they did so sooner than expected.

I´m no fan of Christie and doubt he had any chance of getting the GOP nomination for numerous and sundry reasons even before he got nailed with this hit job, BUT - Notice how this is getting wall to wall coverage when 0bama did the same thing 100 times over by closing numerous targeted federal entities using the full force of the government against his political opponents during the "Shut Down" and that got barely a mention in the MSN.
Just sayin´
As for the Pandering Pachyderm from NJ..welcome to the big leagues.

The article says, "Americans will not tolerate such poltical bullying" (or words to that effect) - Hahaha, and waht to they believe Americans are tolerating right now with Øbama?

American history has never before seen such political hacking to death of opposition by the party in charge of the WH and Senate.

I don´t believe the outrage or the denials. He surrounds himself with people just like him: mean, vindictive, petty, and disloyal. What else does anyone expect from the man who betrayed his own party´s presidential candidate a week before the election and campaigned for his opponent? The personification of disloyalty, in this case disloyal to the residents of New Jersey.

Gee, a scandal in New Jersey. Meanwhile Christie has his own Dream Act with amnesty for all illegals while he sends them to college on somebody else´s dime. The coin of legal citizens of course.

I´ve always wondered how that works. Most students have to at least graduate from High School to get into a University. I´m assuming that these same students must have been educated in public schools in New Jersey at public expense already. What a country.

They caught a 12 year old illegal kid smuggling about 50 pounds of weed across the border last week. I assuming he was just trying to get by and help with family finances so he could go to school here.

I see Christie has reached the scandal level in his push for the White House. Causing traffic jams during our current ice age isn´t going to get him elected to that White House on the hill. Then again, if he ran as a Democrat, he could blame Republicans and get a free ride.

I am willing to believe christie did not know about this action. What I do think is that he has purposely surrounded himself with "self starters" who know when to target political enemies in their boss´s behalf and still give him "plausible deniability". IMHO that is the same as ordering it himself.

# 13 and # 14 are based in reality.
Unfortunately, the right is as gullible
as the left hopes they are.
The media is so desperate to promote Hillary, that 2 lanes closed on the GW Bridge,
is equal to Watergate.
Are .....you ....kidding me ??
A traffic jam is now a scandal ???
Four dead Americans , including our Ambassador is peanuts compared to 2 lanes closed on the GW Bridge .
I expect the left to make this into a big thing, it´s pathetic that the far right is in agreement.
And BTW- Christie has lost a huge amount of weight.
The Krispy Christie , fat boy slams show how out of touch the far right is.
Christie is in much better shape with his weight loss and more active than Limbaugh is.
Talk about low information voters...
1673 dead Americans in Afghanistan since Barry ( or Valerie Jarrett ) became Commander in Chief vs a 2 lane traffic jam on a bridge.
Shame on the far right.
Shame on you.
The outrage should be against Obama not Christie .

Conservatives must decide if they want the media/Dems/Rinos to choose their candidates.. Are we going to allow the press to trash all candidates until we are left with the likes of Bob Dole, John McCain who are so boring, so bereft of any beliefs?
Also, conservatives MUST start voting in the Republican primary. Don´t let the old guard Republicans choose who runs (again Bob Dole, John McCain).
The Republican party certainly isn´t going to encourage conservatives to vote in the primary. Each one of us needs to get at least 5 conservative non primary voters lined up to vote in the primary.
In Tennessee, if you are registered to vote you can vote in either primary. In other states you may have to register as a certain party.
We are down to it - one more lib president and this country is done.

I have here in my hand a list of six people who think Darrell Issa is a fellow traveler of Joseph McCarthy. I compiled these names while watching Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, lead his panel’s proceedings Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress. Among the half-dozen Democrats who made the comparison: “What we’re about today brings us right back to the McCarthy era,” Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-Va.) said. Rep.

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1.

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

Sucking carbon dioxide out of the air might be used as a last-ditch attempt to stop global warming, UN scientists say. The technology is proposed as a ‘Plan B’ if Governments fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70 per cent before 2050. Reducing greenhouse gases to manageable levels will cost up to four per cent of global GDP by 2030, according to a draft version of a report to be published in Berlin on Sunday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). That would involve Britain and other nations increasing spending ten-fold on wind farms and other green

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of
