    Chippppssssticks!!!!!
    How are you???? I have been so busy at work, that I haven’t had time to play. And then when I do – you start new Post and I’m left hanging! So I brought it over…

    Hiya LL, this is a thought-provoking post. As I was reading it, I thought back to Pres. Kennedy & the Cuba situation. There was a storm about him not being Military and not understanding the situation. I see it’s appears to be Gates’ mentality too, though in full disclosure, I have not read the book, nor have I had much time to read the articles – especially the Woodward one.

    Once again, I’m so glad that President Obama took the high road in his Comments about Gates.

    Bobfr had me laughing with his “Christie got fried” comment. All I could vision was a Donut floating in oil. LOL!!!!!

      Just a note, JFK was a WWII war hero in the Navy yet they still looked down on him. It’s despicable for Gates to write about a sitting President. Did write about Reagan or both Bushes when they were still President?

        Doesn’t the rest of society have the ‘right’ to be safe in their homes, driving on the roads, walking down the streets? If you honk at some idiot sitting at a green light on a cell phone, does his freedom to shoot you trump your freedom to be safe in your car?

        Critical mass indeed, yardarm. And Why aren’t Dem’s making this point, over and over?

    Consider cutting and pasting body of tweet and sending to Heller, Ayotte, Coats, Collins, Murkowski, and Portman who voted to open debate but some of whom are saying they may not vote to close debate and take final vote.

    Also to Toomey, Isakson, Chambliss, Flake, McCain, Alexander, and Kirk who are GOP Senators in districts with unemployment higher than national average.

    They really are re-branding as the heartless b**tard party!

        JOB, Christie is a blatant, flat out liar. Also in the impossible event of everyone of his aides knowing about and colluding in creating the GW Bridge mess and his not knowing it, then he’s the worst manager on the planet and is unqualified for ANY position of leadership. A bully move from a bully and he wants us to believe that it’s not characteristic of him. PUH-LEEZE.

          January 8, 2014 at 5:15 pm

          I didn’t read the article or statement – don’t want to clutter up my brain with those lies, when I already know they are lies. But I agree with everything you wrote. How can this deliberate act of obstruction and payback and its fallout not be cause for impeachment or something, if they have such a thing in NJ?

          Of course, at this point, I can see him doing a presser where he says “You call me a bully and then you think I’d hide behind my staffers? Puh-leeze.” And getting away with it, since he’s the apparent darling of the media. Reminds me of John McCain’s “Straight Talk Express” – which was anything but – and his media followers.

        Whenever any hint of a scandal happens Republicans fire someone that works for them as a routine procedure. That explains why the media makes such a fuss expecting PBO to fire Kathleen Sebelious or whomever they deem responsible for whatever new rant they are on.

      Christie and his staff are very very lucky that nobody died over this. An ambulance stuck in traffic, someone having a heart attack in his car, etc…

        That’s exactly what will happen, Layla. They will let it drop because it’s not as important as a book they haven’t read. However, I doubt if the other candidates in the GOP presidential primaries are going to let him get away with this. Think Cruz will let Christie skate away with the nomination without throwing dirt?

      MSNBC finds it really, really hard to give Joy her OWN show. Why would they have Ari in two different time slots? Joy’s not good enough? They make me sick. I’m glad I ditched these stupid shows.

        Slow your roll Allison. It ain’t like she needs the headaches. She’s got family and a good job with the Grio. Besides the producers would have to keep her in check. She could cut through the b.s. real quick and that would be a no-no.

      Here is how this went/is going: Christie called the Koch twins…what to do, what to do he said! The twins sent a memo to the media orgs: get rid of this story…MSM follows with poor Christie, what awful staff he has! We don’t want to talk about this, it’s too sad..Christie is such a nice guy! sob..

      • 69 Linda

        Some time ago Chris Christie was listed as the only friend of David Koch other than family members on the website

        muckety.com………

    • January 8, 2014 at 5:22 pm

      Palin counted on the same thing. We wouldn’t let up. We’ll do the same to Christie, but in this case, Donna, were going to get a heap of help from folk like Crus, Rubio, Perry, Paul, Palin, etc – all of whom despise him. Karma on overload …. ;)

    • January 8, 2014 at 5:56 pm

      “How would we tell the difference from any other “normal” day?”

      I was thinking something similar JO’B. Even if Christie was not aware of what was going on (which I doubt), obviously something in the climate of his administration made these “rogue” staffers believe their actions were okay.

      I just said earlier that Christie and his staff were very very lucky that nobody died. Wow… This is awful. And it is food for thought.

      Is there a possibility for criminal charges ? It would be VERY interesting to see if the staff would still go with the story that Christie didn’t know anything.

    Oh dear.

    FORT LEE – Emergency responders were delayed in attending to four medical situations – including one in which a 91-year-old woman lay unconscious – due to traffic gridlock caused by unannounced closures of access lanes to the George Washington Bridge, according to the head of the borough’s EMS department.

    The woman later died, borough records show.

    In at least two of those instances, response time doubled, noted EMS coordinator Paul Favia, who documented those cases in a Sept. 10 letter to Mayor Mark Sokolich, which The Record obtained.
