The Mayor of Fort Lee Mark Sokolich has asked Chris Christie not to come there today to apologize, but you know Christie... he is not bully and he will respect the request by the Mayor and is not going. Laugh the f*ck out loud of course he's going.

"I don't know him, so I can't be offended and I'm not offended," Christie said in a press conference. "If he wants to meet with me today, I'm happy to meet with him. If he doesn't, I'm still going to go up to Fort Lee today because I think it's important for me to be on the ground there today and to apologize to folks. I'm going to do that."

Christie is in Fort Lee to apologize to Mayor Mark Sokolich (D) and the town's residents, one day after disclosures that top aides were involved in a decision to close a pair of access lanes onto the George Washington Bridge from Fort Lee.

Thanks really Thanks, no I mean it Thanks!

“You know me for 30 seconds, I’m a forgiving guy, and you know, thank you for the apology. We are all grateful for it, and I think we all collectively say that,” Sokolich said. “We just thought it was premature to come up and do it today. If he comes up today, no one will be shunning – at least I won’t be shunning Governor Christie.”  CBS

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
