    Why is D. Issa investigating Christie and the Sandy AID. Issa is staying quiet as are other members of his committee. Does Issa really stand for cleaning up fraud or criminal acts. I think not, esp if your a Republican

    Danged if Governor Christie is guilty .. and danged if he is just incompetent. Either way, he's not ready to be President of the United States.

    Christie is NOT lying! IF he is.... its over for Him. He did the right thing to fire those that were involved.... unlike OBAMA!

    Oh, Yes,
    WHAT A TANGLED WEB WE WEAVE, WHEN FIRST WE PRACTICE TO DECEIVE. The Liars, Movers and Shakers are trying to head off Christi at the Pass. Well I don't blame them because if Christi get's elected President the first thing he is going to do is put all those Liberal's out to Pasture, uh introduce them to real work.

    I can't understand why anyone in the GOP would waste their capital on Christie at this point. His whole schtick was based on being a "straight shooter" who would deal fairly with both sides of the aisle. The Bridge demonstrated that he's either an incredible bully who abuses power in grotesque ways or simply an incompetent who has no control or knowledge of what his own staff and appointees are up to. His only defense against being a criminal is being incompetent. I'd think if there's any smart money in the GOP, it's going somewhere else.
