So the Governor of New Jersey says mea culpa, but not really. After all, he didn’t know the first thing about it. Some underling ordered the Code Red against Fort Lee, to teach that mayor a lesson about what happens when you don’t do what the governor says. Case closed, end of story, right?
Not so fast. In the first place, his underlings wouldn’t order the Code Red, or traffic study, or whatever else it was supposed to be. That order came from the top. Anyone who believes otherwise is invited to buy out my share in that very same bridge. Even though I could get a lotta dough for it now, seeing that it’s famous and all, I’ll let it go for a reasonable price. Serious inquiries only, though. Leave me a message below and we’ll talk terms.
And secondly, I know that the Republicans are foaming at the mouth to see Christie rough up Hillary Clinton in 2016. That’s what this is all about, isn’t it? Governor Soprano’s gonna tell the ex-Senator and ex-Secretary of State how it is, and we’re all supposed to fall in line with his brutishness, or something like that.
But it’s really gonna be the other way around. Governor Christie isn’t going to get to create positions in the federal government for all of his stooges to carry out their boss’ bidding. That bridge nonsense is just a taste of what Chris Christie would do to this whole country, if given the chance. But the people aren’t going to let him play that game.
Everyone hoping to move on to this, or shift the focus back onto Benghazi, is hoping that the rest of us will miss this point. If Christie will use a bridge to settle a score against his enemies, what’s he gonna do with interstates and national parks and education funding? And the Pentagon? In that guy’s hands?
