Political fallout from Christie's bridge crisis

Before news of Gov. Chris Christie's bridge gridlock scandal broke, there were plenty of polls that showed him with the potential to be the next U.S. president. There are many Republicans who don't want that to change. Anderson discussed Christie's handling of the crisis with Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer, CNN Political Commentator Paul Begala, and U.S. Congressman Michael Grimm of New York.

    Go Democrats! The American citizen Republicans don't want Christie to be the Republican presidential nominee in 2016. This is the man who appointed a Hamas supporter as a Superior Court judge. This is the man who helped Resident Obama get reelected by hugging him after Hurricane Sandy which occurred shortly before the election.

    The clear abuse of the authority of public office, to the detriment of public safety, security and quality of life demonstrated by the Fort Lee lane closure incident should be answered by immediate dismissal of all those with material authority to have effected the direction that resulted in the lane closure. No discussion. This is fundamentally different issue than that of a public figure dealing with the repercussions of a lapse in moral judgment. Rather, this incident, if traceable to politically motivated bullying by Gov Christie's office as reported, reflects a clear abuse of public office under color of authority, for which there should be ZERO tolerance. The media has a responsibility when reporting on this issue to make this distinction when discussing whether this is "scandal" is survivable" by Gov Christie. It is not a moral scandal; it is a criminal behavior.
