I like Chris. He'd be a good president--he's tough, fair, and admits
to mistakes. Let's give him a chance.
MountanmanHayden, ID@ Chilidog. Benghazi, fast and furious, NSA and
the IRS abuses not real? That's your answer? Not real to you but very real
to the victims.4:46 p.m. Jan. 13, 2014========== Benghazi - same thing happened at 12 other embassies under Bush, sad -
but nothingFast and furious - can you say, Iran Contra?NSA -

after a though investigation - the FBI has found nothing in the IRS

This Barker, it is because the "bridge gate" involves an actual real
event that broke real laws, unlike all the made up phony scandals that Darryl
Issa keeps investigating. Issa has been looking for his magic scandal for four
years now. What has he come up with? Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zip. Bupkis.
Jerry Ball. Thank you for making my point about "moral equivalency" To
liberals, all their scandals are phony but all others are real and immoral.
After all, Bill Clinton didn't really shake is finger at the TV and tell
America, "I never had sex with that woman", did he? And Hillary
didn't really get 100K from illegal cattle futures scandal did she? How
about the White Water real estate scam Hillary was involved in up to her neck
was just another phony scandal wasn't it? Moral equivalency? That's a
code word for liberals to justify their own crooks!
The abuse of power at the heart of the Port Authority scandal is nothing new for
Christie. The Governor berates and insults teachers, veterans and firefighters.
Christie is unskilled at measuring his words and appears to be mentoring a new
generation of blowhards who threaten and bully those who don't agree with
them. He shuts off debate at town hall meetings by arguing instead of
listening. This is not a problem-solving strategy... which is OK for the
Governor, who thinks he has all the answers anyway.I'm a lifelong New
Jersey resident and am embarrassed that Christie and his protégés are
representatives of our state. New Jersey has a bad enough image. The Governor
does nothing to improve it.
@Tird Barker: " "'They are unacceptable and those who are
responsible for his scandals will be held accountable.' No one has been
held accountable, and no investigation has been done by Obama." Obama took
his response straight from the Republican George Bush' Book of the
"Valery Plame Blame." After "someone" (Dick Cheney?) told the
world that Valerie was a CIA operative and illegally put her life on the line
illegally, the blame went on Scooter Libby who took the bullet, then Bush
commuted Scooter's sentence. Talk about tying up loopholes but no
accountability. Obama has done many of these Bushisms, including keeping the
longest wars in American History going and going and going. Anyway @Reasonable
Person is absolutely correct when he states: "Tell us, also why Benghazi is
a "scandal" when NONE of the other diplomatic deaths during the past
twenty years were considered scandalous. If you're going to play moral
equivalency, let's toss in right-wing Christian Timothy McVeigh (186 dead)
and 9/11 on Bush's watch....then two unnecessary wars that have killed
thousands of our own citizen soldiers."Nobody says it better.
Christie did exactly what he said he would do. He is uniting people all over the
political spectrum. When was the last time Tree Hugging Liberals and Tea Party
Conservatives joined together to push the same person into the Hudson River?
@ Unreasonable person. Its because Obama said his scandals were "phony"
even though he promised, "They are unacceptable and those who are
responsible for his scandals will be held accountable." No one has been held
accountable, and no investigation has been done by Obama. He did however, issue
and executive order shutting down any investigation of fast and furious!As
for as the tax exempt organizations. Did you notice the IRS didn't target
Unions, Planned Parenthood or other Democrat friendly tax fee organizations?
Gee, I wonder why?And about the wars, do you remember 9/11 even vaguely
when nearly every Democrat was clamoring that something be done? Obama is happy
to kill people with drones, even with collateral damage. And then there was
Syria which Obama got schooled on by Putin! Is it possible that you ideology has
blinded you to the lies, the out and out corruption and the destruction Obama is
doing to our nation?
@Thid BarkerYou're referring to the innumerable hours of TV
usurped by Darrel Issa's (R-CArthief) "oversight" hearings? The manufactured "scandal" of the IRS trying to figure out WHO is a
true nonprofit and who is not, and thus asking for more information?WHY is
that a scandal to you? I call it good governance, and liberal groups were also
targeted. Of course, the vast majority of targets were conservatives, because
they were the vast majority of requests. Please explain to the class why
a political action group (of ANY stripe) should be a tax-exempt entity. Tell us, also why Benghazi is a "scandal" when NONE of the other
diplomatic deaths during the past twenty years were considered scandalous.
If you're going to play moral equivalency, let's toss in
right-wing Christian Timothy McVeigh (186 dead) and 9/11 on Bush's
watch....then two unnecessary wars that have killed thousands of our own citizen
Notice how the liberal main stream news media is hyperventilating about
"Bridgegate" but yawn in boredom at Obama's scandals where people
actually died in some cases! Media bias? NOOOOOOOOO! Of course not!
I See NOTHING, I hear NOTHING, I know NOTHING!, I didn't know Sgt.
Christie was in Hogan Heroes!We Conservative Republicans will never
SUPPORT an undocumented Republican like Christie!
