The U.S. attorney in New Jersey is opening an inquiry into claims that public officials orchestrated the massive traffic snarl on the busy George Washington Bridge to settle a political score — and has asked the FBI to help.
The probe announcement came Thursday as Gov. Chris Christie, a possible Republican White House contender, spent the day addressing the brewing scandal over his staff’s role in orchestrating the traffic jam after a local mayor declined to endorse Christie’s re-election bid.
U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman, whose job Christie held before being elected governor, has opened a probe into the decision to close the bridge lanes, his spokeswoman said.
I believe Christie did the right thing. He immediately came out and took responsibility, fired the two people involved and stayed with the press conference as long as was needed answering questions. He did the same thing during hurricane Sandy too. Compare that to Obama who should have fired people like Eric Holder for sending thousands of guns to drug dealers, murderers and kidnappers in Fast and Furious and then covered it up or in Benghazi when Obama was nowhere to be found and sent Susan Rice out to five news shows to say the riots were cause by this little known film which it wasn’t and Obama had the director thrown in jail for a year. People died in Fast and Furious and Benghazi. Never forget these words ‘Obama lied and people died.” At least nobody died under the Bridgegate fiasco and being from New Jersey myself, traffic is always horrible on that bridge daily during the morning and evening rush hours and sometimes worse than was reported now. Even if Christie did know about it which I think he didn’t, so what??? Former Bush PressSecretary Dana Perino recently said on The Five TV show on FOX that when she was in office with Bush there are people underneath the leaders with massive egos who do things behind the president’s back. I believe that’s what happened here with Christie.
The media tried blaming the death of a 90 year old woman who died before paramedics could get to her on the traffic jam, but her daughter denied that was the cause. The mayor of Fort Lee accepted Christie’s apology and said nobody contacted him about supporting Christie much to the dismay of the liberal lamestream media.
Some people are taking to suing Christie now for various reasons. One woman said she suffered a panic attack from being stuck in that traffic and was late for work so she’s suing Christie. Notice she waits until now to sue. How rediculous. I have friends who work in the city and take that bridge everyday and are late often and their companies understand the traffic problem and are OK with them being late. I agree with the two comments below:
What a sorry commentary on society today. When anything happens let’s sue and see if we can hit the law suit lottery. What silliness. What’s next, suing the weatherman because it rained on our picnic?
So, I wonder how it will work out so that the taxpayer ends up paying for these “civil lawsuits”.
Several republican senators are asking Christie to step down which is typical of republicans. The late, but great talk show host Bob Grant, the father of talk radio, once said ,”Republicans can take a lesson from their dem counterparts. No matter how lowdown, sleazy, dirty and dishonest their guy is they will always stick by him. Republicans are quick to turn against their guy.” And so it is here.
YES OBAMA LIED AND PEOPLE DIED!!!!!! Not so with Christie.
