I really don't care if Chris Christie is a "bully."
All successful politicians hold some Machiavellian spirit when dealing with adversaries. What I find alarming about the New jersey Governor, is just how blatantly stupid the guy is. Think about, Christie was this hard nosed Federal Investigator and Prosecutor, and yet he can so easily have the wool pulled over his eyes by people like Bridget Ann Kelly and David Wildsetein?
In my latest video, (below) which I edited late last night, I predicted the weaselly little Wildstein would likely be the one to flip and ask for immunity. Already today the story is out that he is indeed hinting at an immunity deal through his lawyer. This has to be causing some level of panic for someone to looking for immunity so quickly into an investigation.
But Christie is truly stupid in the way he has handled this whole ordeal. It's fair to say he is the embodiment of the "Peter Principle," which states that a person will be promoted to their level of incompetence. Well, Christie is there. Once the national spotlight hit him, and he was considered the frontrunner for the 2016 GOP nomination, he proved to be a rank amateur.
It's actually an insult to Machiavelli to use his name in a story about the buffoon Christie.
Christie has thus far played the scandal game like a complete clown and amateur: Deny and Dismiss, Distance Yourself, then Lawyer Up.
Here's the video, I hope I hope you enjoy:
