Comments on: Why the Chris Christie Bridge Scandal Matters http://mugsysrapsheet.com/2014/01/13/why-the-chris-christie-bridge-scandal-matters/ Recording history for those who seek to rewrite it. Mon, 20 Jan 2014 01:41:38 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.7.2 By: Grant in Texas http://mugsysrapsheet.com/2014/01/13/why-the-chris-christie-bridge-scandal-matters/#comment-22171 Mon, 20 Jan 2014 01:41:38 +0000 http://mugsysrapsheet.com/?p=15148#comment-22171 If it looks like Christie will survive this and if he polls well, the GOP will be overlooking his faults. They don’t hold their “stars” accountable whether Mark Sanford, David Vitter, etc. This morning Mary Matalin on George Stephanopoulos’s “This Week” was complaining about the liberal media making such a big splash to bring down Christie while at the same time down-playing (in her opinion) all of Obama’s “scandals” like the IRS targeting right “charities” and the rest like Obamacare, Benghazi, etc.  Not only has Fox covered these “scandals” 24/7 but the rest of the media has not been holding back, either.  Rep. Darrell Issa spends most of his time in Congress grandstanding to keep his Obamahate in front of the media.

The media loves his bluster so they pretend he’s been a great governor. He’s actually been a lousy governor, propped up by an adoring, fawning media. What worries me is that I could have said teh same of Reagan. I still think he’ll end up the Republican nominee because the GOP actively LIKES to nominate bullying pricks, they WANT nasty bastards, it’s a plus to them.

I like the comparison to the “John-McCain-is-a-Maverick” narrative.
