Poor, poor Chris Christie. Betrayed by his aides and cronies at every turn. His office

* closed two lanes to the GW Bridge, stranding commuters, plus little kids on the way to the first day of school;
* reportedly tried to extort development favors in exchange for federal Sandy funds;
* reportedly tried to ram an oil pipeline a natural gas pipeline through the environmentally sensitive Pine Barrens by improperly forcing one of the commission voting on it to recuse himself;
* reportedly got a local prosecutor fired when he indicted a Christie crony.

And what is the answer to this terrible problem?  Get a new staff!  Yep, the New York Times reports that Chris Christie's backers are asking him to get a new team, to replace the current people who unaccountably keep trying to bully mayors, commuters, schoolchildren, environmental commissions and prosecutors. Poor Chris Christie is the victim of all this. He needs to "recruit a more nationally savvy political team that can take him beyond Trenton to Washington."

Nothing below the squiggle except your tears in comments, as we all mourn the tragedy of Christie's betrayal by the staff that he hired.

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.
