Christie Not Crucified – Yet

Christie on “Bridgegate”: I knew nothing. Have I mentioned I knew nothing? « Hot Air

Obama said the same thing about the IRS targeting tea partiers, of course. To which conservatives replied: That’s no excuse. Even if he didn’t order the targeting, bad behavior coordinated by multiple subordinates typically doesn’t happen unless they have reason to believe it’ll be tolerated up the chain. Usually, when they play dirty, they’re taking some sort of cue from their boss to do so, whether in broad ideological terms or direct marching orders. Does the same reasoning apply to Team Christie?

My guess is that Christie will slide on this one.  A smoking gun probably doesn’t exist, and even if it does, it will be extremely difficult to find and expose in an effective way.

I’d like to see this guy’s Presidential aspirations permanently derailed, but I doubt this will be the mechanism that does it.

I do, however, predict that there are worse skeletons rattling around in Christie’s closets, and we” start to hear about them in about two years.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
