Chris Christie attacks N.Y.
Times, David Wildstein

Politico, by Mike Allen & Maggie Haberman

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/1/2014 10:22:10 PM

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, after a low-key initial response to Friday’s 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 governor’s office says, referring to the former appointee who reignited the controversy. (Snip) The subject line of the 700-word email from the governor’s office is: “5 Things You Should Know About The Bombshell That’s

So this latest clown says he knows of evidence linking Christie to the bridge fiasco but he doesn´t have the evidence himself.Which means there´s still no smoking gun.

As the story goes,Christie was out to punish a mayor but completely overlooked by the media is Obama punishing over half the country simply because they´re white conservatives. The bridge "victims" are back to normal but millions of working people go uninsured because they have it too good in Obama´s eyes.

Wells Fargo is giving "low income" people a grant for a down payment to buy a house and I´ll bet they´re doing under a threat of a lawsuit from Obama and Holder.Never mind that not having a down payment probably means they´ll never sustain the payments.

Christie would make a horrible president. If he runs against Hillary Clinton we´ll be cursed with the evil of two lessors.

Christie may not have ordered the GWB closures, and I don´t think he did, but how could he have NOT known there was a problem at the time? Either he knew and did nothing, or he didn´t know. Neither speaks well for the guv.

I´ll repeat that I just don´t see what difference it makes if Christie engineered the whole project, start to finish. I don´t believe he did so, I think he´s too smart to be lying about this thing, but, to me, it just doesn´t matter.

Chris Christie might or might not run for president. He might or might not have a successful campaign for the nomination. But, if he should land on the GOP ticket (and he is way down on my favorite list), I believe he would be a formidable fighter against whatever name ends up heading the Dem ticket. Just imagine Christie mopping the floor with Granny Warren. Or going glare to glare with Hillary Clinton. As an earlier poster said, it would be great entertainment.

I´m no fan of the bloated bloviator Christie but what #5 said is correct.
Christie will not stand around and eat dirt thrown at him in a debate if that should happen.
Christie is no polite Romney or McCain he´ll bring it to a Democrat who attacks him. The democrats know he would bring up Benghazi that´s why they need to destroy him now to remove the threat.
I don´t think Christie engineered the bridge fiasco but he most certainly knew and did nothing.

However #6, Christie tends to think he´s the smartest guy in the room and he loves the "Self Importance" crap that comes along with Governing.
He´s TOTALLY Star Struck when he´s around Celebs or even BO. He´s a suck up and we don´t need a suck up as President, we already HAVE that. And look where that´s gotten us.

I do appreciate the fact that Christie is no pushover. However, having said that, he is as Poster #7, said "star struck", which is not a good character trait in a leader. It makes him look foolish and weak. He fits New Jersey, but I don´t think he would fit the rest of us. He hired personnel who thought a vindictive act wouldn´t come to light which is naïve to say the least and then lacked the insight to understand the juvenile nature of such a stunt. You are known by the people with whom you surround yourself. Christie has shown a serious lack of judgment in his choice. It is time ethics, maturity and integrity were the basis for employment when hiring government personnel.

"Christie seems to be good for New Jersey" is a perfect summation.

He does indeed "seem" to be good for the state - - an impression he assiduously works at promoting. But the reality is - - Jersey STINKS! Its denizens are the highest-taxed people in the country - - and its governments at every level are cesspools of corruption. Newark, Camden, Patterson, and Trenton would fit in nicely in any Third World backwater.

Yes, indeed - - Christie "seems" to be good for New Jersey.

Christie brings into question "Wildstein’s character and judgment."

So if this long time friend of Christie´s who Christie appointed to this job has issues of bad character and bad judgment, what does that say about the character and judgment of someone who would appoint him to serve the public?!

I´m with #5 and aren´t all politicians star struck? Christie is just not as reserved as some.

Here´s my take. This is not about a bridge closing. It´s the NYT and the Dems wanting to level the playing field for Hillary and her Benghazi mess. They want to damage the GOP front runner early and they also want to send a message that they are out for blood. Christie has an opportunity to show the NYT and every other media outlet that he will not be your typical Republican fraidy cat. He could come out of this a hero. Whether you like him or not, Christie is being scapegoated and he needs our support.
This is not about an election in 2016, it´s about principle vs dirty journalism.

I agree 100% with #15! This is dirty journalism and they are out to destroy the GOP candidate they currently most fear. If they get rid of Christie (ala Alinsky), they will go after the next front runner. What makes Republicans so stupid they can´t see this? We are going down the same path as last election where the NYT said McCain had affairs and Romney put dogs on the roof. Look what they did to Palin. Obama got dirty journalism to destroy his opponent in Illinois. What does it take to get Republicans to fight back? Christie is not my favorite by a long shot, but he will fight! Whomever is the Republican candidate with Fight or Lose!

First, I think Christie is probably innocent. But even if he were guilty . . . what´s worse--being inconvenienced on a bridge or having tens of millions of people losing their health insurance and their doctors? How about millions losing their jobs and leaving the labor market? Having their souls stolen by welfare and food stamps? The damage done by Fauxbama is routinely overlooked by the Slimes; I´m glad Christie is kicking them in the pills.

Christie is by no means ´innocent´. He´s a ´politician´ so that´s a contradiction in terms. And while we may lament, but still recognize, that ultimately all politicians sell themselves, it is Christie´s choice of buyers that bothers me.

Long before this bridge situation, Christie turned me off with his overt pro-Islam stance and of course his embrace of Obama.

How, or if, he comes through this with his flag tattered but still in the air, will determine his remaining credibility as a candidate. As much as I distrust him, nothing would please me more than to see him flip his switch to pit bull setting and rip Hillary in debates.

The " scandal " happened over 4 days.
Everyone knew there was a traffic slow down on the GW- as there is almost every day.
Christie has said from the beginning-he was told there was some kind of traffic study going on.
A traffic slow down is not something out of the ordinary and would probably not have registered highly on his radar.
The NYT had a story a couple of weeks back
( linked here )and buried way down was a line that there may have actually
been some kind of legitimate traffic study occurring.
Still trying to figure out how slowing down commuters-
many of whom probably voted
for Christie-punishes a mayor.
The motive as described by the media makes no sense.
Apparently there are a lot of lucky posters here who have never had a spouse or relative or employee behave in a manner that disappointed.
Christie was disappointed in the behavior of people he thought he were trustworthy-it doesn´t reflect on his judgement, but, theirs.

Now..if an Embassy was attacked in Trenton and four Americans
were murdered while
Christie refused to send help and
went to bed-that would be a scandal.

The other night, Sean Hannity brilliantly interviewed Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, sitting together, demonstrating, FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, that these two young guys are on the same team.
All the very likable Christie has to do NOW, is join hands, be buddies, with Ted and Rand! Make it clear, by association, that he is not on the side of Obama, Cuomo, etc.
Otherwise, without his ever speaking up about freedom, the Constitution, he´s only another RINO Rubio, McCain,
Ryan FAKE !
Great personality, or not, Chris must speak some truths.

For all you folks out there dumping on Christie, please just tell me who you call a "Conservative" and can actually beat the Dem Slime Machine. Palin was the big Conservative hope, but got completely buried. Nary a peep. And don´t blame that on McCain.

At least Christie won his last election by 20 points in strong Dem territory. Who else can do that?

#26, for too many of us, the objective isn´t to actually win an election, but to make some kind of obscure point.

Also, remember that today´s favorite "principled conservative" may frown at the unapproved wrong person tonight and by tomorrow the former PC will be a "RINO". You and I have seen it happen over and over.

I am still hopeful that we can unite sufficiently to win the Senate in November. It´ll be disastrous if too many will be wasting ammo on our own instead of the Democrats. You know, the GOPers who were yesterday´s heroes, but are today´s "traitors and backstabbers".

Btw, the image of Christie´s engaging in his eye-gouging, groin-kicking,
shove in the piehole behavior, in which he has now jammed his own finger
up his high school friend´s nose and said, Na Na Na Na Na Na...

Calls to mind the old saying...

"You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose...
but you can´t pick your friend´s nose."

Well, my friends, in the pages of the Newd Dork Slimez,
now that Wiener is no longer available on a daily basis
to entertain us...

We have the prospect of the bloated Christie, rampaging through
the mud in the gutter, vigorously jamming his finger up his friend´s nose.

That´ll really spite that David Wildstein, won´t it... ?

And we´re off and running for 2016.

At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science.

California Unemployment Holds

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
