clkeagle: I figured all this was just the opposite - that the only reason Fox News was daring to cover the story is to demolish Christie's presidential hopes.
Yakk: He thinks this is over? That's adorable.
Doktor_Zhivago: Dude is done. Sorry republicans.
Doktor_Zhivago: Dude is done. Sorry republicans. There's no way he didn't know about this and at least give tacit approval.

Piizzadude: I have to say that I believe him, I do not think he knew about it.
timswar: He threw his staff under a bus and denied any knowledge of what was happening under his nose. All the while he's been belligerent, annoying, and generally a bully to anyone who would mention this story.Yup. This guy sounds like a paragon of Republican virtues. Bring on 2016!
Skleenar: I can't believe fark has devolved into 24/7 bridgegate frenzy while important scandals like Benghazi and Arugulagate are ignored by the libs that run this site.
Piizzadude: He sucked it up and took responsibility either way
BunkoSquad: Does "passing the Scott Brown" test mean fitting into the passenger seat of his pickup?(I mean, with Christie, that's not a sure thing)
LarryDan43: Doktor_Zhivago: Dude is done. Sorry republicans. There's no way he didn't know about this and at least give tacit approval.Sorry Republicans? They are ecstatic this moderate RINO is tanking. They want someone much much worse to punish libs for Obama.
phaseolus: Me, I can't wait for the investigation to start, just to chuckle at irony-blind Conservative commentators claiming it's all just a partisan witch hunt.
otisrelaxed: I have never seen such blatant butt smooching from a MA
NeverDrunk23: The fact Fox even acknowledged it is staggering.
Zombalupagus: Wait, I thought a scandal would help his chances with Republicans. To show he's really one of them.
RowdyRough: timswar: He threw his staff under a bus and denied any knowledge of what was happening under his nose. All the while he's been belligerent, annoying, and generally a bully to anyone who would mention this story.Yup. This guy sounds like a paragon of Republican virtues. Bring on 2016!Well, we can't forget the last time a republican's aides went off the rails under his nose, but completely unnoticed by the executive. Iran Contra testimony.
Dinki: Christie was pretty good in the presser. However, there are some lingering questions - Why did Christie ask Cuomo on December 13 to get the port authority to back off an investigation of the bridge closing?And now we know that the whole thing had probably nothing to do with the Mayor of Ft. Lee, but was retribution for NJ Democratic Senators blocking Christies judicial appointments. Maddow lays out a pretty convincing argument, especially with the timing of Christies Press conference on August 12th where he was so upset with the Democrats, followed the very next day by the infamous "traffic problems in Fort Lee" email. It isn't too far a stretch to imagine Christie fuming in his office and telling his staff to make the Democrats pay.
cameroncrazy1984: Piizzadude: He sucked it up and took responsibility either wayNo he didn't. He said it was other people's fault. At no time did he ever say the buck stopped with him or take responsibility for mismanaging his office. He said he was lied to and that he fired someone. That's it.
regindyn: dookdookdook: [cloudfront.mediamatters.org image 519x481]1st and possibly last time I'll defend FOX News: No one should've dedicated 10% of the day's coverage to the bridge incident./FOX is still bad and should feel bad
