    Governor Christie should use the Obama defense: 1) I didn’t know about it till I read it in the newspapers and saw on the TV news; 2) No one in my staff told me about it.

    What is amusing is that he is the Mondale to Hillary’s Reagan. It would have been a cakewalk for her. Conservatives loathe him more than a dozen Romneys.

    So Perry, are you admitting that Christy is an incompetent, idiot? Or is he just a lying a**hole, that is throwing everyone within reach under the bus?

    It’s a very weird scandal. Normally, political retribution happens very quietly. This time they stupidly decided to do a public stunt. Next time, deny planning permits or something that no-one will ever know about.

    Interestingly I see the FORMER staff members are under the wheels already, so he can legitimately say he didn’t know. However, since both are gone maybe some more Nixon tapes will appear.

    [“and Perry, unlike Obama, Christie IS lying.

    So Obama is that stupid. Get’s his news on what Administration is up to from the TV, does he.

    @Truthiness : it isn’t clear if Chistie is lying or whether his staffers, reacting to his demeanor, got the wrong idea. But regardless, those staffers were dumb enough to leave an email trail, and Christie is responsible for hiring them. One of the key factors in how well a president does involves hiring his staff and making appointments (e.g., his cabinet), and Christie has shown that he is not up to the job. He hired a bunch of bozos. Even if they did what he told them to do, they are still bozos as they didn’t even have enough sense to use a telephone
    (land-line, of course) instead of email, where incriminating evidence could sit there for ever.

    Christie won’t admit it, but he is now toast – that is, if the Republicans have half a brain.
