  •  It seems Christie works on both sides of the law (1+ / 0-)

    He's a product of a corrupt political culture that has existed forever in  New Jersey.

    He reminds me of the corrupt cop in the movie 'The Departed'.
    What could be better than having one of your own working in law enforcement.

    I'm not saying he's an out and out gangster, there aren't any actual bodies, violence or HBO stuff,
    but he's sort of the political version of a Whitey Bulger, playing both sides of the game.

    He might have learned a trick or two from his "Uncle" Tio Fiumara.......
    yet another person he claims to have barely known despite the fact that prison records show Christie visited Fiumara in prison.

    Romney's investigation probably turned up some very good reasons not to have Christie as his running mate.

    •  Actually he is not well connected to it (0+ / 0-)

      His problems are a bit different. Nobody so far has suggested that Christie has profited personally from any of this, and he took public funds in both his campaigns for governor.

      The culture he appears to have created is one in which nothing matters but Chris Christie, and anyone and everyone around him is totally expendable. "Bully" doesn't do justice to this!
