  •  The Godfather philosophy applies here (8+ / 0-)

    If you've read Puzo's book, you know the main character, Don Vito Corleone never said anything like "Go kill that guy for me."

    He would allow his displeasure to be known and some short time later said guy would be wearing cement overshoes and under 6 feet of water or would have a discrete bullet popped into the back of his head.

    Christie didn't have to ORDER the bridge lane closure. Didn't need to. His wishes are known (like a comment about that asshole mayor who didn't support him) and voila! Something terrible happens to the mayor...or the mayor's city. People more directly responsible resign and are taken care of for the rest of their lives, their noble sacrifice known and noted by all.

      •  Yeah, but the closer you get to the minutiae (0+ / 0-)

        the less important this will become. Chris Crisco can still come out of this appearing tough, one small dent in the front fender and be just fine.

        For the rest of us, it's interesting to see how he deals with politics, aides and lying.
