Giuliani Says 'Fifty-Fifty' Chance Christie Knew About Bridge Lane Closures


Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Thursday there is a "fifty-fifty" chance New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) knew about an order to close lanes on the George Washington Bridge in September.

The assessment marked a big change for Giuliani, who has been a vocal defender of the governor in the wake of the bridge scandal and hosted a fundraiser for him last year before the scandal broke.

Swivels head and looks at old post, when I say old I mean, oh, two weeks or so ancient ago...
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani says he finds it "pretty darn credible" that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie didn't know about an apparently politically motivated plan to create traffic jams near the George Washington Bridge.

Speaking on ABC's "This Week," Giuliani says candidates "miss a lot of things" in the heat of political campaigns, comparing Christie's oversight to President Barack Obama's response during the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya.

Err, is BENGHAZI!!!! the new noun, verb, 9/11?

I have to post some of the comments from TPM, they cracked me up...

In other words Chis, you're toast, and I'm outta here.

Btw- Can I count on your support in my 2016 bid for Pres.?

I think it's 50/50 that Rudy might want to run as the GOP moderate once Christie implodes.
True. Sumbodygottadoit.
Using his renowned mathematical and statistical expertise, Rudy NounVerb911 Giuliani has, through long and arduous calculation, determined that there is a 50% chance that Christie knew about the punitive measures taken in his state.

When asked about the methodology used for this analysis, Giuliani said, "I checked the orientation in the bowl this morning before I flushed."

Unskewed Polls rates the likelihood at 80/20.
I think the Vegas bookies have something closer to 99/1.
Walking his full throated defenses back a bit now, isn't he? I'd say you can take what he says to mean he now knows it's going to come out that Christie knew and he wants to get ahead of it.
When this lick-spittle doesn't back a repug to the max, that repug is in
serious trouble.
And my favourite so far....
I am impressed... I really didn't think Rudy had the strength to shove Christie anywhere, much less under a bus.

6:29 PM PT: Thanks for the Ts and Rs, glad you thought it was funny enough to read.

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.
