I'm guessing he won't be taking questions.  Though his ego might prevent him from not doing so.

And, who's the small-voiced patsy that's been planted in the audience for Chris Christie's totally-not-at-all-choreographed YouTube moment of the week?
 
2014-01-09 09:55:40 AM  
The real question is how many aides will heroically fall on their swords for him, and how many of their names will show up in a few years in plum appointments for staying quiet.

I heard that to further enhance his 'stick it to the libs' street cred, he's going to end the press conference by actually eating Obama.

The real question is, how many of them are being counselled by Reince Pubis as we speak about STFU?

"Governor Christie engaged in petty, vindictive tactics to punish voters of a Democratic mayor..."

How, exactly, do Tea Party members find such behaviour to be objectionable?

People may have a short memory, opposition research has a very long one. So yes, it will come up frequently, with relish, by his opponents.

get rid of that tidbit and that's their ad. They don't give a damn that the mayor was a Democrat or not, they want the excuse to get Christie out and Scary McJebus in.

From the article I read, it sounded like the EMS actually did a pretty good job minimizing the delay as much as they could (the usual 4-minute response time was increased to just 7).

Still in cases of MI (which is what the 91-year-old woman died of), literally every minute lost before treatment begins significantly increases the mortality rate. You'll be hearing about this case a lot more in the coming weeks (or months).

I don't think that's what is going to upset a whole lot of people. The  bridge lanes were shut down for 4 days,a 91 year old woman died because EMS was delayed. This happened because the governor of New Jersey was having an egotistical temper tantrum.

Disagree. I don't think he'll be eliminated until he debates others on a national stage.

They probably do, but keep in mind this was done with none of the customary notices and a PA worker was specifically told to lie to the mayor about it.

The tea party folks outside of the northeast aren't all that wild about Christie, and his opponents are going to hammer the crap out of him on this, no matter what Reince tries to get them to do.

Lane closures DO happen from time to time for legit reasons. The difference is that they're generally planned WITH Ft. Lee officials well in advance so that the town can prepare for them by demarcating detours, having cops out, etc.

THIS was done specifically with the intent of screwing Ft. Lee over, giving them no advance warning and refusing to answer their calls while it was happening.

He doubled-down on the lie so know even the most heartfelt apology in the world won't help him.

He's at his best when yelling at people on Youtube.  Otherwise he's pretty uncomfortable looking in non confrontation situations.  Which is to say, I never thought he had much of a future in national level politics to begin with, and this certainly doesn't help him.

bronyaur1: The paid trolls are on it early this morning.


Not trolling. I think this was a stupid thing to do, more so stupid that they got caught the way they did then the fact they actually did it. I live in north jersey, 2 towns away from ft lee. This is the way politics works here. And when it comes to abuses of power, or corruption, or lying, the hudson county democratic machine is probably the last group out there that should be throwing stones. Ask 4 of my town's last 5 mayors. Most of them are out of jail now (our last mayor lasted all of a week in office before he got busted taking bribes).
