Christie Says N.J. Traffic Scandal Won’t Deter White House Bid

Bloomberg
Published: March 29, 2014
Gulf News



Washington: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said the furor over calculated traffic jams at the George Washington Bridge won’t deter him from a possible White House bid, even as another prominent ally resigned yesterday.

The 51-year-old Republican faced reporters a day after a review Christie commissioned cleared him of responsibility for four days of punishing traffic on bridge approaches in Fort Lee, where the mayor didn’t endorse his re-election. The governor’s approval ratings have fallen 20 percentage points, and Christie acknowledged his popularity took a hit.

“Yeah, sure, but there’s nothing permanent about that - like the same where there was nothing permanent about my standing being extraordinarily high,” Christie said. He planned to be in Las Vegas today for the Republican Jewish Coalition’s meeting, where he could court potential backers for the presidency.


Revelations that aides deliberately snarled traffic at the world’s busiest bridge - turning 30-minute commutes into three- hour ordeals - have become the biggest political crisis in Christie’s career. His national popularity fell to 32 per cent in March from 50 per cent in June, according to a Bloomberg National poll. The governor placed fifth among major candidates for president in a George Washington University Battleground Poll released March 25.

Christie had avoided reporters’ questions since the scandal erupted in January. He said yesterday he wanted to gather facts before holding another news conference. The governor sparred with reporters during the session, calling the premise of one question “infirm” and another that displeased him ridiculous.

He is scheduled to speak to the Republican group today at the Palazzo in Las Vegas, in a weekend that will feature such high-profile Republicans as Ohio Governor John Kasich, Wisconsin’s Scott Walker and keynote speaker **** Cheney.

The group includes casino mogul and big Republican donor Sheldon Adelson, who in the past has sparred with Christie over New Jersey’s legalization of Internet gambling.

    Christy is the consummate democrat. Fat, stupid, power hungry and lazy. He is Animal House's Flounder. He has as much chance of winning the pub nomination as Psycho Joe does for the dems. :grin

    A good point. A skinny, black, and "happy" Democrat would be much more marketable.

    This election cycle I think the Democrats should use Dora the Explorer as their logo.

    It will appeal to the Latinos kind of like Obamas Pepsi logo did to the college kids.

    Then put her in a rainbow shirt having an abortion.

    I think that will cover your entire campaign without saying one word.

    Second Kent Dorfman was not "stupid, power hungry and lazy". The character Flounder went on to become a "sensitivity trainer" - a career Chris Christie is entirely unsuited for. Christie could play Mr. INSENSITIVITY.

    Karl Rove loses it after Fox guest calls Chris Christie report a ‘whitewash’

    Sunday, March 30, 2014

    Republican strategist Karl Rove on Sunday accused a Fox News co-panelist of a personal “attack” after he called an internal investigation that cleared New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) for closing the busiest bridge in the world for political retribution a “whitewash.”

    During a panel discussion on Fox News Sunday, Rove insisted that Christie was still a viable presidential candidate, and that the governor’s own internal investigation put him “back in the arena.”

    The National Journal‘s Ron Fournier, however, was not convinced by the internal review, calling it a “whitewash report.”

    “We saw what happened with the IRS scandal with you have your own person investigate yourself, nobody believes it, it’s not credible,” he explained. “This was basically his attorney declaring his innocence, and the public trial is about to begin. And the public trial is going to be ugly.”

    As host Chris Wallace tried to call on another panelist, Rove interrupted: “It’s a direct attack! I have a right to response!”

    “How can it be a whitewash,” The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberly Strassel agreed.

    “Because it’s done on his behalf,” Fournier said. “And it didn’t talk to half the people you have to talk to.”

    Strassel argued that the law firm hired by Christie would not have whitewashed the report because “so many reputations” were at stake.

    “That’s what attorneys do all the time,” Fournier insisted. “That is exactly what defense attorneys do when they defend clients.”

    “I grant you that this does not exonerate him,” Rove remarked. “But I think you’re missing — this is part of a process. And now we have a third party that has looked at all this information and gushed it out!”

    “It’s not a third party!” Fournier observed.

    “Yes, it is a third party,” Rove shot back.

    In conclusion, Wallace noted that Rove, Strassel and Fournier were the “least collegial panel I’ve ever seen.”
