How is it that a scandal is only a scandal when it concerns a Republican? Even when the suffix added comes from a far worse scandal that the media have minimized for more than a year now?

Supposing he was involved, which is not certain, Christie’s scandal is petty and stupid. But no one died as a result of it, and he didn’t use it to attack the freedom of speech.

Updated: As noted in comments, someone evidently did die because of the GWB closure.

Localities have been "fixing" traffic signals to generate traffic fines for DECADES, and DOT/NTSB and others have shown tens of thousands of deaths since the 1970s.

On the news last night they mentioned three EMS cases that were delayed due to the traffic. One of them resulted in a death. When they get to the root of this someone ought to face at least a manslaughter charge.

Anyone who blames Obama for the IRS scandal ought to blame Christie for this. Even if he didn't give the order he set the tone of his office and his staff and administrators carry it out. And I say this as a conservative. I voted for Christie in his first election and never voted for Obama.

Recall all the ambulances that couldn't get through in NYC during the blizzard early last year. At least one death that I remember.

But that was a statist "Republican" as mayor then.

Whether Christie was aware of it, or not, most staffs take their cues from the Boss. Christie's staff obviously thought this was OK, and that the Boss would approve.

That just confirms my opinion of Christie's fitness to be the Republican nominee in 2016. If he is, my vote will go elsewhere.

That's possible, and it will all be because the Republican Establishment was stupid enough to nominate Christie.

It's the equivalent of Romney's dog.

Romney didn't force his dog to suffer a 4 hour traffic jam. If Christie is involved his actions are worse than Obama's closing of national parks and monuments during the recent "government shutdown". Christie is a fat statist Republican big Little man petty ego fascist; well only if he is guilty of deliberately creating traffic jams for the taxpayer.
