The Bridges Of Bergen County

So now all the world is ablaze with the news that some of Christie’s top aides were apparently directly involved in closing some lanes on the GWB and creating chaos for Fort Lee, whose mayor had declined to endorse Christie’s re-election; at the very least, they certainly made it known that they were amenable to the Port Authority choosing the most inconvenient times possible to conduct whatever repairs it needed to do. Assuming this is true, they must be fired immediately. And if Christie is shown to have ordered it he should resign. Such petty governmental abuse of power can not be tolerated at all, regardless of the letter after the politician’s name. Full stop.

It will of course be extremely interesting to compare and contrast the media’s outrage at this with their cocooning of Obama with regard to the IRS, the AP, Benghazi, etc., and the different set of standards that a Republican is held to vis a vis a Democrat.

Assuming Christie knew nothing of this, his making of heads to roll will be a good lesson in how to lead and worthy of contrast with the White House.

And, again, it simply points to the fact that a government with the time and inclination to involve itself and YOUR MONEY (always remember, absolutely everything the government does is done with your money, although at this point it is actually your grand-children’s money they’re blowing through now) in something this petty and vindictive is a government that is too damned big.

Update: Someone agrees with me.

    For one thing if he were a Democrat, he would never had gotten caught and exposed.
    But, if the charges are true
    this is criminal action and borders on domestic terrorism.
