We remember Gov. Chris Christie giving the key note address at the Republican Convention as presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s key note speaker. I went away after listening to that speech thinking what kind of a keynote address was this considering that a lot of the speech was about himself. I was actually very annoyed by it. I came away comparing Christie to the comical loud mouth character of Ralph Kramden that Jackie Gleason portrayed in the old Honeymoon series.
The next episode of disappointment from Christie came from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy that hit New Jersey hard in 2012 that put a stop to any momentum Mitt Romney might have had just before the presidential election that kept Romney out of the news for five days. Not only was Romney out of the news but this was the time that Chris Christie started kissing up to President Obama in front of a national audience, sucking up to him in an obvious fashion. Not only did Christie invite Obama to visit the destructive site of New Jersey but he obviously went out of his way not to invite Romney to do the same, I felt there was definitely something wrong with this picture. I saw some kind of vendetta here such as maybe Christie wanted to be Vice -President but he was not picked.
Everybody’s day such as a character of Christies eventually comes. Now you have Christie actually sounding like Obama. What happen in a city of New Jersey sounds like another vendetta type situation. “The governor released a brief written statement late Wednesday, following a report in The New York Times detailing emails involving his deputy chief of staff, Bridget Anne Kelly. They pertained to a bizarre incident in September, when lanes at the George Washington Bridge from Fort Lee, N.J., were closed for four days. Christie faced accusations that the lanes were blocked in retaliation over Mayor Mark Sokolich’s refusal to endorse him for re-election last November.
The New York Times reported Wednesday that emails show his deputy chief of staff suggested closures to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey two weeks before the incident.
“Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee,” she wrote to Christie confidant David Wildstein, according to the Times. At the time, Wildstein was on the Port Authority; he has since resigned.
So now we have a situation where Christie has picked up pointers from his new found friend Obama by saying this: “But Christie maintained Wednesday that he was “misled” and had no knowledge of his staff’s apparent involvement. Isn’t this something, Christie is saying he had no knowledge of this happening . Where have we heard this countless times before? I guess Christie is starting to find out something about life, “What goes around comes around.” I wonder who Chris Christie is going to kiss up to now. He sure can’t get rid of those e-mails.
