Christie being targeted for pure political reasons

TumwaterJanuary 28, 2014 

Concerning Gov. Chris Christie and the bridge scandal: Two lanes of the George Washington Bridge were closed causing traffic issues. Some folks are saying Christie knew about this. Christie said he didn’t know. I feel Christie has been treated unfairly, perhaps because he wants to run for the 2016 presidential election.

Everybody is focusing on the scandal as if the New Jersey governor is the biggest screw-up in America. He apologized and took responsibility for his actions. There is nothing else he can do.

This is nothing compared to Benghazi. Hillary gets let off for that, but Christie gets thrown under the bus. The Left is using this to discredit Christie. Democrats need to clean up their own house: Benghazi, and Fast and Furious for starters.

While they’re at it, that Iranian deal they just recently made doesn’t give me a feeling of confidence, either.

The people of America need to work together to hold all politicians accountable equally. We need to come together and be united for the good of America.

Thomas Sowell, professor at Stanford, stated: “It is hard to imagine a more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.”’
