New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney at the 2012 Republican National Convention
Priceless:
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.

"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."

Yeah, sure, when Chris Christie says something, you can take it to the bank. For example:
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. [...]

"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."

So yeah, you can trust everything Chris Christie says. Except when he's lying.

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.
