What is far more troubling for Christie’s future political aspirations is the manner in which he has permitted the Citizens of NJ to be served up as defenseless victims to the Criminal Class on the alter of the Anti Gun ideology.

While “BridgeGate” is getting all of the medias attention these days, it is hardly the only scandal that has the potential to seriously impact Gov Chris Christies widely anticipated run for the Republican Presidential Nomination for 2016.
In fact, “BridgeGate” is a relatively minor matter in the grand scheme of things. Not to minimize the blatant abuse of power in playing the cut throat game of politics, as ALL abuses of Governmental Authority are extremely troubling and cause for alarm. But at least Christie showed significantly more leadership then the President.
He took decisive action, firing those deemed most responsible, and took responsibility for his underlings actions. In many ways its irrelevant whether he was aware of the plan to close traffic lanes leading to the Bridge in Ft Lee NJ or not. Which is more then can be said about Obama, who has steadfastly protected and defended far, far worse abuses of authority and the public trust by Attorney General Eric Holder and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
