Mitt Romney on Wednesday said that he believes New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) when he says that he did not know and was not involved with the closure of lanes on the George Washington Bridge last year.Yeah, sure, when Chris Christie says something, you can take it to the bank. For example:
"Oh, I sure do," Romney said on CNN's "The Situation Room" when anchor Wolf Blitzer asked if he thought the governor was telling the truth. "Chris is a friend of mine. Chris is a straightforward guy. When he tells you something, you can count on it."
For the first time today, Governor Chris Christie addressed the controversy over lane closures that led to a massive traffic jam on the New Jersey side of the George Washington Bridge in September. And not only did he deny the suggestion that he had anything to do with it, he dismissed the accusation as absurd. [...]So yeah, you can trust everything Chris Christie says. Except when he's lying.
"I worked the cones, actually," Christie said, when asked about the issue at a Statehouse news conference today. "Unbeknownst to everybody I was actually the guy out there, in overalls and a hat."
He added: "You really are not serious with that question."
