What's up with this stupid act. Do politicians really get a charge by doing stupid things like this? Unbelievable!
It's amazing that people with aspirations of national leadership hires staff members that are so petty and juvenile. It would be hard to believe that Christie would know or condone any of this, but did he create an environment that led his staff to feel this was a good thing to do? If it turns out that he did know, his political future is toast.
I always knew what my direct reports would tolerate and what they stood for because they told me/us. The people closest to the governor had to know what he would tolerate or stood for. If they went rogue, we will soon know.
The good thing is we have probably heard Christie's abrasive tone with NJ taxpayers for the last time. This should be his "Damascus Road" conversion resulting in a more civil person.
his political future is toast."
Oh, I don't know. Toast is good. I like it.
On the other hand, if indeed he did know, then his future will assuredly be soggy, wet toast. Nobody likes that.
I don't see conservative trying to defend him either, like the liberals do any and every time their leader screws up.
Darby.... Fedex is to busy with his breakfast of crow after saying that Rick is just a political hack.
Eating crow and thumbing down. :-)
This story knocked off the others though....this is important but give me a break....it won't be his waterloo..imho.
The cone on the head is just the right touch.
See you've got the claws out already and I haven't even finished my breakfast yet.
Well...do you care to apologize for being wrong about Rick? I doubt it.
Fatty Fatso is guilty!!!
I'm sorry you had to copy the picture that appeared on Trenton's Newspaper yesterday.
Yes, my personal OPINION is that he knew about this and probably had something to do with it. This seems VERY personal and why would it be so personal for his staff? The Mayor didn't support Christie, it shouldn't upset the staff so much. Plus, I just don't think they would do something this bold, without his knowing of it.
I heard someone say "Christie wouldn't have fired them if he had something to do with it." Maybe, but he would if they were given HUGE severance pay that they agreed to behind closed doors!! But if this is true, it will eventually leak, but it could take years. My problem is that I don't trust any politician and I wouldn't put this past ANY of them!!
But, I will point out that the hyporcisy of the left is enough to make me want to PUKE!!! Debber Wasserman-Shultz is a lying no good..............weeell, I'll stop there!!
She said the difference in this and Obama's scandal's was Obama's was policy!!! This could only make a difference in a LIBERAL's mind!! In anyone elses, it's absurd!! Is the President NOT supposed to know the policies? Is he NOT the CEO of the United States? Because he doesn't know policy, does that excuse him and his staff from accountability? Who has the President fired? Shultz is quickly becoming a bigger joke than Pelosi and that my friends, is pretty hard to do!!
Just can't admit being wrong, can you Fedex?
@Fedex. Not the first time, nor the last, that a traffic cone has been used as a dunce cap. Get over yourself, Pearl.
I doubt this will be the deciding factor on whether Christie eventually becomes president, unless more comes out. I'm not sure what his chances were anyway, some conservatives seem wary of him, especially when he hammed it up with Obama after the storm.
you guys really think Ruper Murdoch/Roger Ailes wanted Gov. Christie to be the Republican nominee for president in 2016? Please. Keep up the good work Rick - the check is in the mail.
How many more are there in this country that just have not been caught as yet? How do we know whom to vote for? Those running for office hopefully have a good reputation and don't change after being voted into office, no matter how low or how high on the totem pole.
When we find out just how deep this rabbit hole goes, we will be SHOCKED!!!
