    One thing that we are overlooking here is how absolutely toxic the political environment is in New Jersey these days. He thinks he is innocent of real abuses, because this is how the game is played here, day in and day out.

    Democratic legislative leaders are right now holding up our mayor's plan to make changes to the Jersey City pension program -- not because they disagree with it -- but because they are punishing him for some past infraction that honestly no one else really even remembers.

    The Port Authority takes the PATH subway line out of service on and off to punish our mayor. The mayor sues the Port Authority for back taxes. Services are stopped and restarted on all levels depending on whether your local government is "in" or "out" of whatever clique is on the ascendancy in Trenton.

    So -- he thinks he's just doing the best job he can and that he's playing the game.

    This doesn't excuse what he did.

    I think it's just evidence that you don't want a bigwig politician from New Jersey to run for national office.

      Christie has taken the business-as-usual of Jersey politics and elevated to heights unknown and scary.

      Sometimes it's just a matter of degree, but this guy, with his ambitions and temperament, I think it's gone beyond the pale
