You know I’ve never been a fan of Chris Christie, and I’ll be addressing this on today’s Tammy radio, but here are a few of my tweets so you have a sense of where I stand , some video updates and other coverage. I’m curious to see where you stand!

    Shorter Krispy Kreme: Does this bridge make me look fat?

  2. Kitten says:

    I say, this could be our chance to be done with this moderate. The media and GOP would LOVE to have him be the Republican nominee. I hope he’s done.

  3. n9zf says:

    Said the Washington Bridge when Krispy Kreme walked on it: “Does this ass make my span look skinny?”

  4. careless says:

    After eating a double breakfast and a Mexican Village, Chris Chrispy Kreme read the newspaper where he “first” heard about his administration shutting down the bridge. He should just stick to hugging our Kenyan president. He’s great at that.

  5. dachiemama says:

    Please, please Mr. Krispy, don’t come to Mississippi. We have to have the Ponchartrain Bridge to get to New Orleans. If you sit on it, we will never get to go there again!

    Taranto’s comments on the incident are worth reading: “Road Rage”.

    It’s a small stretch, but there’s an analogy between using the IRS to harass and diminish political opposition versus creating traffic jams to harass political opposition — with both actions being done by underlings for which the executive has oversight. The first case is far worse, in that it undermines the democratic process. Indeed, you can make a reasonable case — as Taranto does — that Obama’s IRS may have been the factor that put him over the top in 2012, by slowing the momentum of his organized opposition. And in the aftermath, contrast Christie’s quick actions and graceful acknowledgement, as opposed to Obama’s evasive denials and obfuscations and stonewalling and lies, all with that big oily grin. So I think I’ll hold off on any cheap shots at Christie, because he’s using his moment in the spotlight to remind us of what a class act looks like. That’s what the nation desperately needs right now. And, by doing what he’s doing, Christie is implicitly making Obama look like the sack of s— that he is. And that, boys and girls, is the way it’s done.

    Chris Christie said he was “misled.”

    Wow, this “myzzled” thing must be contagious. Has he been hanging out with Debbie-What’s-her-face Schlitz?

  9. Sailing_J says:

    Whether he knew about it or not, just like the Obama, he obviously has set an administration culture of thinking this would be ok. He’s a bully and a loud mouth and his staff thought it’d be ok for them to get in on this act little as well. What’s funny is that the left is trying to pin him as the 2016 Republican nominee. He isn’t and in my opinion never would/will be.
    These politicians think they can act with impunity and that there are no consequences. Whether it’s unnecessarily closing national parks or bridges, “they” are not afraid of repercussions…. and why should they be with the likes of John Boehner and John McCain leading the Obama opposition.

    • Sailing_J says:

      Next thing you know he’ll close down all the state parks and government funded cancer treatment centers. And he did leave the abortion clinics open. That counts for something right?

  10. strider says:

    That was tough act to follow for Obama. “Uh …. Mmmm….I… Uh…look into……………Uh…”

  11. jimmer says:

    All I know is Christie’s ‘people’ seem to have as much disregard/contempt for the American people as Obama’s. Oh and both (Christie and Obama)deny knowing anything. Two peas/pod if you ask me. Next!

  12. Cathode Rays says:

    Imagine him thinking he can away with Chicago/Democrat creepiness.

  13. Alain41 says:

    Michael Walsh points out that Jeb Bush is currently in Uruguay meeting with Swiss bankers. Is there a bridge in Uruguay that he’s selling?

  14. LJZumpano says:

    Forget about Christie for a moment. Forget the political dirty trick. A handful of bureaucrats managed to close 3 lanes of the GW Bridge for four days for no apparent reason, and no one, anywhere, with any authority, was able to get those lanes re-opened. It is very troubling to me that it is so easy to sabotage one of the busiest bridges in NYC.

  15. midget says:

    The hypocrisy of the media gnawing on this “phony scandal” is a direct slap in the face of the families of Brian Terry & the Benghazi four.

  16. Dave says:

    I commend him for his actions however we do not need another damn fool in the White House.

  17. Pat_S says:

    N.J. politics is notoriously corrupt and nasty. The online news source
    has an entire section dedicated to “latest news on political corruption and arrests in N.J”. The political environment in NJ is cutthroat. Sometimes literally if certain underworld elements are involved. It has been for decades. It is that environment which creates a mindset for those of all poltical persuasions there. It isn’t Christie’s temperament that made a few people crazy with power all of a sudden.

    This kind of penny ante dirty trick is for the long game if a politician’s ambition was limited to being a power in the swamp of NJ politics. I believe Christie has set his sights higher and this kind of stuff works against those ambitions.

    If Christie was involved in this, he’s washed up. Otherwise this is a BridgeGate to nowhere. Let the hysteria-mongering media try to taint him with coming from a politically corrupt state. Hillary was engaged in politics in Arkansas and New York and has a few things to answer for during her tenure as Secretary of State as well.

  18. Kimj7157 says:

    Not a big fan of Christie, but he’s handled this well so far. He’s believable in his apology. Seemed genuinely ashamed.

  19. hbmuzik says:

    His staff needs a lap-band. He’ll do the procedure himself.

  20. ShArKy says:

    christie is a liar. one wonders where the media outrage for benghazi went. or why it never existed. WE ALL KNOW why!

  21. Cathode Rays says:

    First, assume politicians of this ilk are lying. He’s a RINO and a bully. Bullies are not strong and the federal government doesn’t need a push in that direction.

    The Bush/establishment wing of the Party is pushing for a complete voter meltdown, whether they know it or not. Well, congratulations — you got that for two full cycles. Let America melt so long as you can lust for power, power, power.

    Tea Party is our hope.

    Welcome to my world TAMs. Here in the Socialist Republic of New Jersey this is just another day. The only reason why this event rises to the level it has is it’s value for political destruction. The Demonrats HATE that a Republican, even this bloated RINO, prevents their one party rule of the state. I must remind that the our previous Gov was none other than Jon “what $2 billion” Corzine. Only the truly ignorant would assume that less people had their lives destroyed by that clown.

    ALL governments in the eastern part of this state are corrupt and government by retribution is a common occurance. Every day some government official is damaging some business or some individual by overt or covert application of the “law”.

    Here is my hunch as to what went down. The Christie staff was so blatent as to what they were doing that the “mayor” of Ft. Lee let it continue for its future political value. He made all those phone calls OVER 4 DAYS to make it look like he was doing his job. If this was such a problem an INDEPENDANT CONSERVATIVE mayor would have sent down his police department and his road department and simply re-opned the lanes and DARED fat-boy and his goons to come and shut them down. Reality: An accident on the east bound Cross Bronx Expressway makes this happen every/any damn day. The people that should truly be prosecuted for any harm to the public should be the mayor and government of Ft. Lee for a> letting it go on and b> for not having a viable emergency action plan to deal with an event on the bridge (opened in 1931 so they had time to plan) to prevent it from paralyzing the town their citizens hired them to protect.

    As for Mr. Christie, anyone who hires people that stupid is not a manager to be given the public trust. Thankful are we for his own stupidity removing him from the field….
