The Christie matter in reality was a minor scandal. Yes people were inconvenienced, but in the course of the year it is one stupid experience in a series of many. Christie found out acted and terminated the employee.
I contrast this with cowardly Obama who feigns ignorance of every scandal. The IRS scandal alone exceeds anything in the Watergate scandal. The administration feigns ignorance and lies and we have not gotten to the bottom of the IRS scandal. Despite the NYT claim, Benghazi was not a spontaneous demonstration over a video. That whole story reeks of protect Hillary 2016.
Bottom line is Christie can lead and is a man of action. Obama is a spineless political clown whose every action is suspect. He irritates allies and has our enemies laughing at us. The economy is a disaster and full time jobs are becoming about as rare as Bigfoot directly tied to Obamacare.
