By now everyone has heard about 'Bridgegate'. It has grown from a back story to front page to national news. It is now going to be investigated on a local, state and federal level....

Refreshing to see how a real leader handles himself amid controversy. It's interesting to note that there is more investigation here than the IRS, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and the Phones records scandals combined. And NO ONE was ever held responsible for anything under Obama's watch.

Obama ought to take some lessons from Christie and hold people responsible for their actions.

Was there really any doubt that Chuck would see a scandal HERE while dismissing Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS targeting specific organizations for additional scrutiny, and the NSA "meta data collection" as nothing more than Republican's attempting to make obstruct Pres. Obama on anything.

All accounts indicate it was an individual within Christie's staff.

Time will tell as the Democrats have now subpoenaed nearly every NJ resident to try and get to the bottom of this. Eric Holder is claiming executive privilege (that's sarcasm MrShaman).

Chuckie Baby,

Christie, his staff, and anyone else should be held responsible for illegal actions. I don't care if they have a donkey or an elephant or a tiger or a chicken or a rat printed on the voter registration card or stuck on their bumper sticker.

If your intent in life if to turn everything into a democrat vs republican or a conservative vs liberal issue well then you are succeeding, at the top of your class, an A++ with a :-) face.

Life is more about relationship to God and other people; it is about truth, love, caring, righteousness, honesty, integrity, hope, peace, joy, kindness.......

All our elected officials should be held to high standards of integrity.

So, when President Obama ordered national parks closed to WWII veterans, but open to illegal aliens, during the gov't shutdown, no investigation was launched, no outrage from liberals was seen.

Liberal hypocrisy on display, folks!

PS: I am no fan of Christie, but he is showing how a real leader deals with scandal as opposed to President "I didn't know"

Michael Whouley, founding partner of the strategy group tied to Hillary Clinton’s budding 2016 presidential effort, orchestrated a traffic jam to help his client Al Gore win the 2000 New Hampshire primary against Bill Bradley. Gore campaign manager Bob Shrum wrote in his memoirs about Whouley’s last-minute gambit to use the Gore motorcade to suppress the vote on primary day, as Slate’s David Weigel noted on Wednesday. “Michael Whouley came up with a last-ditch scheme: Send Gore into areas of southern New Hampshire where there was a lot of Bradley support among upscale voters and commuters who worked across the border in Massachusetts. Many of them cast their ballots late in the day after driving home. Gore’s motorcade — candidate, press, Secret Service, and police — could snarl traffic and keep some of the commuters from ever getting to their polling places or even trying to,” Shrum wrote. Liberal hypocrisy on display!!!

All this episode did was add more proof to the evidence of media bias against Republicans. Did this story warrant the non-stop coverage CNN and MSDNC has given it?

Bridgegate is nothing compared to what the Liberal Democrats and the President has done. You are a joke Mr Reeder. You libs jumped all over this to get everybody off of what Gates is saying about the President and you know it. Your Liberal stations gave it more air time than Benghazi. What a joke of a letter.

Christi should not be the Republicans choice for a run at the Presidency anyways, he is not a true conservative and the Republicans will lose if they try to run him so who really cares about Bridgegate anyways? The Democrats see him as a threat so they will do anything to try to take him down.

Wow Sham! What learned debating skills you have there! Hard to top that one.

Seriously Shammy - maybe we should answer all of your pointed comments by saying 'that's what some pajama-boy Liberal in his mom's basement told you on You-Tube, I'll bet.

But I instead actually know how to debate with facts, so nevermind.

I'm guessing that's (merely) part o' the sales-pitch, for the sackcloth-industry that outfits the horde o' "conservatives" who are hung-up on the whole martyrdom-trip.
