    This story, Christie was coasting to being the Republicon nominee for POTUS in 2016.  Those of us who live in or have family in NJ knew what a bully he is and how he squashes all his opponents but the rest of the country didn't know or see that.

    Rachel's reporting has brought all this to the forefront and now a story that would have been buried on the back pages is headlines.  Rachel's doing the entire country a favor.  Think of what would happen in this country with Christie as POTUS and his flunkies helping him run it.  Tell me, would you want to see Wildstein, Baroni or any of them heading specific government agencies?

    Never be afraid to voice your opinion and fight for it . Corporations aren't people, they're Republicans (Rev Al Sharpton 10/7/2011) Voting is a louder voice than a bullhorn but sometimes you need that bullhorn to retain your vote.

      advising President Obama to be more like Chris Christie (?!), gushing over Christie and describing him as “testosterone coming out of every pore of his body.” He was the media darling, the John McCain of the 2010s. They were slobbering all over him. I'm glad, more than anything else, that this whole bullying, in-your-face style of politics is getting somewhat discredited in the course of this story. To show the real-life consequences of that kind of fear-driven government may not be as entertaining as YouTubes of the big bully browbeating one of those mooching teachers, but I hope it makes some people think twice about admiring that style.

        this Jersey Jerk had for Democrats, was pretty insufferable.  He was the beltway's shiny boy and Maddow/Kornacki/Hays took him down. And the country owes the 3 of them a big thank you.

        This diary is a mile off mark…maybe 1,000 miles off mark.

        All you have to do is watch a replay of "Morning Joe."  Between Joe & Mika I don't know who makes you want to vomit more.

        Sure, many commontators were in love with Christie but personally, I alway though he was a big bully and had no respect for average people.  I'm glad he's now got problems and I hope he'll have to resign, never to be elected to even dog catcher again.
