Christie's administration Farked up and likely committed a crime, this is the sort of thing the public should know about.
 
2014-01-11 05:20:58 PM
Well, Christie's flunkies might have closed a bridge but LOOK OVER THERE!
 
2014-01-11 05:22:00 PM
Listen, if someone says that he didn't know about it, they *must* be telling the truth.  So don't bother investigating.

Also, it doesn't mean he's an incompetent executive whose subordinates can exploit the power of the office while he remains oblivious.  So don't think that, either.

The important thing to understand is that in a Christie administration, his underlings will use their power to hurt you, he'll mock you for pointing that out, and then later on feel "sad" about it.

Oh, shut the fark up, "Haley."

Is it just me or is Haley Barbour slowly morphing into Jabba the Hut?

Sorry, distracting picture is distracting. See also: Queasy-making. So what's his deal?

The Mississippi Republican - one of Christie's political mentors - said President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have gotten a free pass after their own political scandals in the last five years. Christie, on the other hand, is being walloped in the press unfairly because he is a Republican, he said.

This is what Republican shills really pretend to believe.

I'm sort of on the fence about this whole thing. Yes, it was a fark up and yes heads have rolled but was that Christie cleaning house or a white wash plausible deniability thing?

Big question is how much effect this will have on Christie's ambition for 2016.

Free pass. Obama and Clinton have gotten a 'free pass'.

The liberal media has hoisted Christie up on a cross to crucify him .... where they found the forklift big enough to do the job, no one knows.

Also, how does this relate to the upcoming tolerance induced white genocide, which the young Republicans in knoxville warned us about?

Barbour is still around?  I thought he went back to shoveling shiat in in Yazoo City, MS.
 
2014-01-11 05:41:47 PM
"He stepped up to the plate and said what a great Democratic president once said: 'The buck stops here. I take responsibility' He didn't say, like Secretary Clinton, 'what difference does it make?'"

Wow, that's some weapons-grade derp.

Yep. It's another battle in the Republican Civil War. The more moderate Republicans know that Christie is, by far, their best shot at the White House at the moment, so they want to defend him. But the purist Teabaggers only know that Christie said Obama did something right, thus he must be destroyed.

Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour defended Gov. Chris Christie in a lengthy interview

this is news? anyone interviewing him would be shocked to get anything but a white wash of christie.

And by taking responsibility he says he was blindsided and promptly blamed his staff.

Ummm, we *are* talking about traffic shenanigans, OK? And yet it's getting international coverage. Not quite in the same league as using the IRS to suppress political activity, or using the NSA to spy on every American using a phone....

Pretty much.

It's also funny that Barbour has ended up in the moderate Republican camp.

I would never had imagined it happening while watching him back in his bomb throwing days prior to his chairing the RNC or being governor.

He comes off as a southern caricature, but I kind of like the guy.

"President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have gotten a free pass after their own political scandals in the last five years. "

Wut?  I'll I've heard about since Obama got elected was what an awful man he was and that everything he ever thought, spoke or did was a "scandal!".
Given that they present themselves as the party of righteous morals and closer to God than Jesus, is there any Republican leader who isn't a lying, hypocritical, ignorant scumbag?

Oh, right.  A group that has nothing BUT political was sent a questionnaire asking if they were as non-partisan as they claimed.  Which also got sent to progressive groups, and Occupy groups.

What an outrage.

Well according to the derp republic Chris "Owebama" personally hopped up into the back of that ambulance and punched that old lady in the face till she died. So between the teabaggers and his figure and complexion I don't know if he's taking it home.

The bottom line is that Gov. Christie either directed his senior staff to teach Mayor Sokolich a lesson, dropped hints that he'd like something done, or is so incompetent in the hiring and oversight of his employees that they do what they please without consideration for good governance. None of those possibilities bode well for Gov. Christie's political future. The way to find out the truth is to arrest those involved on criminal charges, put them on trial, and see which one is willing to sell out his or her former employer in return for leniency. Given the utter lack of loyalty displayed by Gov. Christie to his employees, I'm sure the sentiment will be reciprocated when push comes to shove.

I'm trying to think of the last time a Republican executive indulged in "dirty tricks" and political payback by having his underlings act illegally on his behalf. What was that guy's name again?

Because New Jersey Democrats give a shiat what a Mississippi Republican thinks.

Wait, check that. Because New Jersey Democrats give a shiat what a person from Mississippi thinks.

I applaud your bravery stubbornness in using that same talking point even though it's been roundly debunked.

I'm note sure "pretending you didn't orchestrate it, and use your wife's phone to reply "I'm smiling here" because that means the name will be redacted if subpoenaed" is exactly is taking responsibility.

Especially as it turns out there's a long laundry list of similar petty revenge from your pen in the last 4 years.

tnpir: Oh, shut the fark up, "Haley."


why is his name in quotes? as far as i can tell it is his given name.

i am suspecting you maybe confused Haley Barbour former governor of Mississippi... with Nimrata "Nikki Haley" Randhawa the current governor of South Carolina. they really do not look similar at all.

We're talking about a governor, and the GOP's best candidate for President in 2016, either using his position to severely hamper traffic on the busiest bridge in the world, or allowing an underling to do so while knowing damn well what was going on, for petty political revenge.  So yes, that's a scandal.

People getting killed in a politically-unstable region? Tragic, but not a scandal. NSA's privacy invasions? Inappropriate, but far from anything new. Furthermore, the branch of our government that has the power to actually STOP the NSA has done nothing but whine about Obama instead of doing their jobs,

The way the GOP are spinning and deflecting on the Christie bridge scandal leads me to one conclusion:

The GOP establishment KNOWS they don't have anyone else even remotely electable they can run in 2016. And now they're scared shiatless that the nomination will go to Rubio or Cruz, which will change the election from a potentially winnable contest into a laugh-at-the-fascist-palooza.

Christie is the only candidate they could have run who wouldn't look like Darth Vader to a majority of Americans, and now they're well and truly farked. They're only hope at this point is a Democratic fark up along the lines of "dead hooker in the trunk" or "caught giving a beej at the truck stop gloryhole for meth." And a loss in 2016 means their next realistic shot at the White House is likely in 2024, at which point their target demographic of old white bigots will be seriously reduced, leaving the GOP a shattered shell of its former self.

This is the GOP freaking out over the knowledge that their best chance to remain anything other than a historical footnote was destroyed by traffic cones.

The fact that he punished completely innocent commuters shows his complete disregard for the average guy who is just trying to earn a living. Treating them like pawns not people is contemptible.
