Chris Christie knew.
So did Barack Obama and Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe. All have been described by insiders as top-down leaders running a tightly controlled office.
Conservatives realize the New Jersey governor had to know the alleged “traffic study” foisted upon thousands of commuters by his closest advisors was at some point known to Christie even if he didn’t plan it.
The liberals who hate Republicans are enjoying the constant media blitz designed to bring down a Republican believed to be a real threat to the 2016 Democratic candidate, presumably Hillary Clinton.
Insiders including Robert Gates and those interviewed by Bob Woodward also describe President Obama as a micromanager who demands to know the details of every national political operation. The IRS scandal, using the IRS to crush the constitutionally protected free speech of thousands of Americans whose belief in smaller more effective government is a threat to the Democratic Party, was obviously known to the President as documents have proven the scandal goes right into the oval office.
So have the Fast and Furious gunrunning operation and using the Department of Justice to spy on reporters and the parents of one reporter.
The absence of signed and engraved invitations to corruption does not preclude common sense.
There are more Obama scandals, but the real national scandal here is that of the national press which has been trumpeting the Christie story daily for over a week and has generally defended the Obama administration over the IRS scandal and has allowed themselves to be neutered by the DOJ spying scandal.
Even more blatant is the lack of consistent multiple media coverage and investigations into Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s sleazy career. When McAuliffe’s aides and lawyer said they didn’t know he was profiting from fraudulent life insurance policies purchased on the lives of people who were terminally ill, the national press rolled over and said, “okay.”
