MSM finally picking up the Hobokken story, U.S. Attorney involved:
From CNN: “A day after Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer rankled the administration of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie with allegations that his office withheld Superstorm Sandy relief funding over her refusal to push through a redevelopment project, she says that she met with the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
“This afternoon I met with the U.S. Attorney’s office for several hours at their request and provided them with my journal and other documents,” she said in a statement.
Zimmer earlier today told CNN’s Candy Crowley that she didn’t speak out before because she didn’t think anyone would believe her, adding that she is now “offering to testify under oath.”

President Barack Obama is cooler than cool. Cool looks at him and concedes that it has nothing on him.
Pres. Obama cements his place as the coolest POTUS ever. He taught everyone at FLOTUS's party how to do The Dougie. eonline.com/news/501401/be…— Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) January 20, 2014
At one point, POTUS, 52, taught guests how to do “The Dougie!” For some, however, the president’s remarks about his wife of 21 years were the highlight of the night. “It was really beautiful and really touching,” musician Herbie Hancock said. “He said something—his voice almost cracked like he was crying. It was just beautiful, a husband speaking about his wife.”
I just posted that down below – always late to the party! Every report is talking about that speech. The pundits be crying.

Go Broncos! I have family here in Denver who are very happy tonight.
I have been thinking back to last year. I worked so hard to get our great President elected. I was fortunate to be able to attend the inauguration. ( I liked to freeze to death,(and I am from Colorado!) Just want to shout out to Donna Dem and all the rest of the TOD’ers who were able to meet up at the Air and Space museum. I had a great time.
Now wish me luck–my husband goes in for major surgery tomorrow. Our live will be changing dramatically. Thanks everyone for all your posts and comments. You all keep me so informed. It was a huge help on the campaign. Keep it. up.
You will be in our thoughts. Hope the surgery goes the way it should. Change can be scary, but health is everything.
Our prayers are with you tomorrow.
keeping your husband, you, your family and friends in our thoughts and prayers – trusting all will be well
CCS, I pray that the surgery goes well. Please let us know.

My thoughts about Mr. David Remnick’s New Yorker Portrait of a President (Pres. Obama)
- the article is an interesting read;
I have been reading it as I braid my hair and I have now finished the 18 pages;
I must admit that there are a number of paragraphs that I have had to stop, go back to the beginning and re-read (sometimes I had to re-read entire pages);
Some things that stood out to me:-
- PBO is a person very comfortable in his skin and he seems determined not to sell his soul to the highest superficial beltway bidder;
-PBO seems to respect this author’s intelligence & his appreciation of the complexity of the challenges any POTUS (and especially this POTUS) faces;
-PBO is a person of deep moral character & exceptional intelligence and these are part of things that make PBO weigh every action he takes and its long term impact on the people while at the same time comparing them to his values;
- the author seems to trying to understand PBO as a person and what makes him decide to act in the way he does (the author is not trying to profile PBO into an already-determined stereotype);
- the author and PBO have a deep appreciation of the limitation of presidential power and that fundamental change takes time;
- the author and PBO are not overwhelmed by being in the presence of each other are using each more like a documentation of history
- reinforced to me that so many in the punditry and policy making class really do not understand the core of PBO
and some are more comfortable with the caricature they have constructed of him
It will be amusing to see the contortions Faux News puts itself into to spin #ChristieGate— Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) January 20, 2014
They’ll ignore it. BENGHAZI!
They have ignored it – I can see the headline now
“Chris Christie resigns for personal reasons – receives offer as online commentator for FoxNews”.
Naw. He’ll be a “contributor like Ed Rendell on MSNBC.
Not this time – I’ll bet the well known $10,000 that it’s Fox
Oh for sure it’ll be fox’s answer to Ed Rendell.

Yardarm756, thank you for posting this.
We were at my cousin’s for family dinner, and I tried to quote this, and could not remember for the life of me, who said it. Now I will print it and keep it with me. Our dinners turned into politics over the holidays; no screaming, everyone loves and supports President Obama. We discussed voting against one’s own interest because no one could understand why someone would do this.
Glad to be of service.
That is exactly right. I have been saying that for years. I went to college in the south in the late 70′s. This was such a surprise to me.
Now the turtle is on it’s back and the belly is exposed, but it makes no difference, the hatred is too deeply ingrained.
My gosh – and there I was chatting away on the last thread!
The BEST thing about the birthday party for FLOTUS – the main conversation that has got to the media is about the speech the President made to and about his wife. That is the measure of the man. The President with the highest level of family values since forever – a wife who supports him without question, but who remains her own person in a role that came with the marriage.
Repeating a link from the last thread
For some, however, the president’s remarks about his wife of 21 years were the highlight of the night. “It was really beautiful and really touching,” musician Herbie Hancock said. “He said something—his voice almost cracked like he was crying. It was just beautiful, a husband speaking about his wife.
I would have loved to be a fly on the wall at that party. So jealous.
It is so nice that the President and Mrs Obama have friends who don’t “tell-all” to the media – despite we would love to know it all
And just to add – many good wishes to you and your husband for tomorrow. Major surgery is what no-one wants – but it does get better every day after that. That he has the support base of his family is a big start in the healing process.
What a wonderful thing to say. Thank you for your support.

I’m saving the Remnick article for some quiet time.
I know many of you have enjoyed Jim Stuart’s blog writings about PBO. He utilizes an integral perspective. The Spiral Dynamics perspective focuses on the development of values and the worldviews that encompass them. Said Dawlabani studies developmental economic stages using Spiral Dynamics. He has written an excellent book about this, MEMEnomics. The stages are very simply summarized on the second item on integral life.com right now, called The Next E conomy. It’s fascinating. Anyway, he has also, like Stuart, noted that PBO is ahead of his time, ahead of the developmental curve of much of society. Current economics issues are one example of this. He is not as optimistic as Stuart in this regard. I certainly disagree with him about this. I sincerely believe that what PBO represents and has accomplished will be acknowledged and greatly appreciated in time. In any event, he writes about this in his most recent blog at MEMEnomics.com. Check it out. It is useful in understanding our present challenges.
Is Jim back, Pickle? I gave up checking as he hasn’t posted in a while.
I haven’t seen an entry since his predictions for 2014.
Yea, I figured he’s off on vacation, but your reference made me wonder if he had returned.

Just a small quote
“Occasionally David Brooks, who personifies the oxymoron “conservative thinker” better than anyone I know, displays such profound ignorance that a rejoinder is necessary lest his illogic permanently pollute public debate”
Now that is a worthy sentence for anyone to quote And so very true.
And to summarize the rest – Brooks speaks baloney and hogwash.
You are just too too clever.

Lot’s of happy folk in Seattle
My family is happy that Seattle won. My son’s new business has been working for 3 whole days on setting up staging and sound stuff. All my WA and OR family are big time Seahawks fans.
Just a few things you may not know about Chris Christie:
Under Christie’s transformed homeowner’s rebate program, homeowners received one-fourth of an annual rebate amount in a credit on their tax bills. He cut the legal aid allocation by 50%, closed health clinics that served thousands of women, cut medical services for the elderly and put 4,000 police officers out of a job. He signed landmark legislation that increased the pension and health contributions paid by a half-million teachers, police and other public workers and crushed collective bargaining.
Christie’s cuts left as many as 15,000 children without a supervised after school environment and his education cuts were so devastating a judge ruled them unconstitutional. It didn’t help that the state carelessly lost $400 million in “Race to the top” federal education funding.
In 2011, New Jersey accepted $300 million in federal money to provide financial assistance to eligible homeowners in danger of foreclosure, an entire year later the state has doled out only $4 million, even though New Jersey suffered the second-highest foreclosure rate in the nation.
The state legislature passed a tax on millionaires that would have helped alleviate the budget woes, however, Christie vetoed the tax… twice…. he also vetoed the Earned Income Tax credit for working families.
Finally, with all of his bluster against gun control, as a candidate for the state assembly, he supported a ban on assault weapons.
The man is a piece of work. So when I consider his rep and all the crap he had already done, the latest revelations simply say to me that someone wants Christie out of the presidential picture. Are they more powerful than the people who want him in? Time will tell.
Note how Christie handled the foreclosure funds. It was the tactic used by Republican governors throughout the nation. Now they are calling “Obama’s” homeowner program a failure.
They would rather see people on the street than allow this president a success.
when I think of Christie all I see is that picture of his ugly mug pointing and being all snarly looking at a teacher who dared to ask him a question. And his wife being all smug. geeze.
On a much happier note I went backwards in the timeline and finally found out why Dudette is not around and that she’ll be getting better. That’s a relief. Thanks Donna for letting us know.
I certainly agree about Dudette. I miss that good music and her clever remarks. It’ll be good to have her back.
Dudette is okay? what’s the story?
Thank you FayPax,
I remember most of this stuff he has done, and that is why, I just don’t have any understanding as to why the people voted for him. Why did the dems support this man who does not care anything about the people of Jersey? This is just criminal malfeasance; no regards for human life, and this is the repukes “great white hope” who they want, to take back “their America.”
Who is overseeing the money? $300 million for home foreclosures, Sandy fund; a case of the proverbial fox guarding the chickens.
Who indeed, Cindy. To me, everyone should have been wondering when he completely rebuilt the boardwalk and totally ignored the devastated homeowners…many have still not received a dime.
I tell you, as this thing unravels, some dems are going down with Christie. If we can analyze this mess for what it is, no one can convince me, that those who stood with Christie, didn’t see the same thing that we are looking at.
Some repukes and dems were paid off when they placed their hands in the cookie jar. I am a proud dem but wrong is wrong; those who are responsible for bringing pain to innocent people just to align their own pockets, I pray that they go down and go down hard.
Anytime people are asking for immunity before they speak, it’s a forgone conclusion there have been illegal activities…they were involved and are trying to cover their ass.
Reading this list — HOW, HOW did he get re-elected????????? I do not understand. SMH………
It’s amazing, isn’t it?!
I do not understand the US media when this stays hidden – are the pundits also under threat from Christie? Are a couple of MSNBC pundits the only people in the US who are not afraid of the man?
It’s sad to say, but the days of “real” investigative reporting and newscasters who stick to “just the facts” are long gone. Newscasting is little more than an extension of the entertainment industry…in search of a rating.
It seems to be a product of the last 30 years that a large paycheck is worth much more than integrity.
remember MSNBC’s Scarborough’s snide tweet earlier today => about how liberal should thank Christie for bridgegate because it is in his words “funny stuff”,
well, now would be a good time to remind Joe Scarborugh about what people say “who is smiling now” aka “who is your daddy now” – as the US prosecutor gets involved and take Mayor Zimmer’s diary & “other documents”
Morning jokester will be on his show this week doing everything that he can to defend Christie cream. He did it all last week and blamed President Obama. I hope that no more Sandy funds are released to Christie. It’s time for someone, appointed by the Justice Department if need be, come in and show an account for those funds.
I am concerned about Mayor Zimmer’s safety because she is dealing with mobsters-I am convinced. I wonder if she should be speaking to the news outlets anymore because she may very well be the one to blow the lid off of Christie’s misdeeds. This is unfolding like an old mystery that I had my Language Arts students to read some years ago; The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell
I have a memory – from a long time ago – when our Feds lost trust in the State governments and started giving funds directly to the local governments – the screams from the States reverberated widely – it was a joy to behold.
Joe has himself a problem – he is praising Christie 55 ways to tomorrow – and the Christie people have attacked MSNBC for being the liberal media who are attacking Christie. Joe is being attacked by both sides – is it wrong that I smile?
Yup it up 99ts…it’s yours for the yupping : )
Joe might take another day off the air – he seems to want Mica to do all the anti Christie talk – as per last Monday.
It would also be good to remind Scarborough that a woman died and businesses lost money and the search for a missing child was dangerously delayed for that “funny stuff”.
