"I Am Not A Bully!"



Oh Crikey, Governor Christie, wrong thing to say.  Ever!


 "Listen, politics ain’t beanbag, okay? Everybody in the country who engages in politics knows that. On the other hand, that’s very, very different than saying that someone’s a bully. I have very heated discussions and arguments with people in my own party and on the other side of the aisle. I feel passionately about issues and I don’t hide my emotions from people. I am not a focus group-tested, blow-dried candidate or governor. Now, that has always made some people as you know uneasy. Some people like that style; some people don’t. And i’ve always said, I think you asked me a question after the election, are you willing to change your style in order to appeal to a broader audience and i think i said no because I am who I am, but I am not a bully."

Queue up all the instances the media will dig up of Christie's bullying.


From Talking Points Memo:
David Wildstein, the former Director of Interstate Capital Projects for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, refused to answer questions Thursday at a state Assembly committee hearing concerning the George Washington Bridge lane closing scandal. 

 "I respectfully reserve my right to remain silent," Wildstein said before a hearing of the New Jersey The Assembly Transportation, Public Works and Independent Authorities Committee. Wildstein had been subpoenaed to testify about the closing of lanes on the George Washington Bridge in September, which lead to a massive, multi-day traffic jam in the town of Fort Lee, N.J. 

Wildstein has previously maintained that the lanes were closed as a result of a traffic study, but Democrats in the state have suggested the closures were retaliation against Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, a Democrat, who declined to endorse Christie's re-election bid last year.

 "Curiouser and Curiouser"


Go HERE to Infidel753 and watch Rachel Maddow report on this developing story.  She was the first to break the news on it.  GOPers won't bother, of course, because unlike the IRS story and the Benghazi tragedy, this is a real scandal, and there is actual evidence to back the allegations up.

Andrew Sullivan:

I was also struck by Christie’s insistence that Kelly was fired because she lied to him. Not because she engaged in petty vindictive politics. But because she deceived him. He claimed that she had never deceived him previously in any way. Again, his core issue is what was done to him, not what was done to the inhabitants of Fort Lee. What he cannot explain away, it seems to me, is the tone of the emails which suggest that this kind of thing was so routine it could be talked about almost in code and another official would instantly respond “got it” to a mere suggestion of “traffic problems.” That’s not a rogue moment, it seems to me. It’s part of an obvious pattern. The vindictiveness is not a leap; it’s a premise. The idea that Christie had no responsibility for creating a culture in which that premise was unremarkable is, to my mind, deeply implausible.

Infidel753 said...

That's exactly it. This has given the media a reason to go after all the documentary evidence of his nasty nature that's out there, some of which he himself has posted.

He's a bully with a staff of bullies. It's entirely possible that Christie didn't know very much about the bridge episode. It might just be the product of the culture he's created, or permitted, to arise around him.

And this is what the Republican spin on the bridge episode misses. They're emphasizing that the e-mails haven't directly implicated Christie (yet), only his subordinates. But what kind of leader creates a work environment where people expect to get away with such behavior or even consider it a norm?

Ema Nymton said...


It is a joy to watch the NJ Governor flame out. This is such a sweet spiteful story of greed, graft, and grief - worthy of Shakespeare.

Moving right along, the governor is finished at national level. The RepublicanT Party was never really willing to allow the man to become a national candidate, not after the "Sandy Hug".

(Oh I forgot. This is all a made up story to distract from Ben Gazi (snicker, snicker, snicker).)

Loven' It!

GOPee--ers are scratching their heads wondering why media are covering the Christie scandal and didn't go after Obama on the IRS?

Simple answer: THERE WAS NO SCANDAL!

The Christie scandal has actual emails that show his closest aides plotted this thuggery.

Nothing of the sort was ever found in the IRS kerfluffle. And so the GOPee-ers haz a sad.


Shaw Kenawe said...

This is probably the most likely explanation of what happened:

from Crooks and Liars:

"There are several moving parts to this narrative. One is, as I just mentioned, it is pretty much unheard of that a senior staffer would do such a thing without direct orders from a higher-up to do so. That's not how political operatives work -- they do nothing that will affect their candidate without permission. Did those orders come from Christie himself? Don't be silly, that's what campaign managers are for: plausible deniability!

Did Christie bemoan "Will no one rid me of this meddlesome mayor?" to his campaign manager. Very, very likely. Did the campaign manager understand what Christie was asking? Of course. This is politics, after all. Dirty tricks are a given."

skudrunner said...

Lets see,
One of Christie's staff screwed up and lied to him. Christie apologizes and fires the staff.

One of obama's staff screws up, F&F, IRS, Bengazi, NSA, and obama says he knows nothing and promotes the staff member.

It could be that obama didn't know about all the screw ups. It might just be the product of his incompetence.

I can see why the media doesn't cover that in the same way they are after Christie because as Hillary says "what difference does it make" It was only American lives.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Skud, the difference in the Christie story is that there is hard evidence (emails) of a conspiracy to inflict harm on an entire city as a revenge tactic.

Do you suppose for one nano second that if Darrell Issa had ANY hard evidence of scandal in the IRS story, or Benghazi tragedy we would have seen it by now?

Benghazi was a tragedy, not a scandal. The IRS was a screw-up by an obscure IRS office in Ohio and from all the reports that were published on it, Democratic as well as Republican organization were under scrutiny. The right always leaves that pertinent fact out. And certainly President Obama had nothing to do with the Ohio IRS zealots.

What happened in Bridgegate goes right up to Christie's closest aides.

Trying to change the subject and refocus on non-scandals when a real one is staring you in the face is not going to get past me here.

Mr. Christie has claimed he knew NOTHING ABOUT ANYTHING in this scandal. NOTHING. His closest aides did it all without his knowledge, and he had only found out about it yesterday even if he said he lost "two nights' sleep" over it.

Clearwater, Florida said...

If Christie is such a take-charge governor, and he had nothing to do with the traffic jam, then why didn't he take action to resolve the jam-up it when it became apparent that it was a major problem? The horrendous traffic jams took place on the busiest commuter traffic bridge in the country! And the traffic was paralyzed in a New Jersey city! For a week!

Explain that Mr. Take Charge Gov.

skudrunner said...

Didn't I read somewhere that the attorney general got an executive reprieve for some illegal gun running or was that just a right wing conspiracy.

Didn't the lie about keeping your own insurance and doctors result in millions being dropped from their insurance.

Didn't the blatant lie that bengazi was about a video result in someone getting promoted.

Your right only the liar and thief gets a pass for incompetent staff members.

Who is accountable in the obama administration, surly not presbo because he doesn't know anything.

Shaw Kenawe said...

skud, this post is about CHRISTIE and the scandal enveloping his administration, okay?

You do this all the time. You come here and change the subject and make it all about Obama when's the subject is NOT about Obama.

I have an idea. If you want to talk about all the non-scandals the rightwingers dream about using to impeach the president, START YOUR OWN BLOG.

mkay? If you come back with more deliberate troll behavior, you'll be deleted.

And I mean that in the nicest way.

Dave Miller said...

Interesting thoughts Skud...

Can you cite one instance where Obama's Chief of Staff ordered political retribution on a group of people for not supporting him?

If we take the IRS instance to it's worst conclusion, it was a mid level at best person ordering that Tea Party applications be given more scrutiny. Hardly the type of political stunt that gets people killed, or delays life saving first responders from doing their job.

Maybe you missed the info that the NYTimes did a pretty exhaustive story that showed the video was in fact a contributing factor in the Benghazi affair. In any event, if there was some big coverup, why has Issa not produced evidence of that yet?

As Shaw said, it was a tragedy, not a planned political scandal.

I agree that i would like to see some people in the Obama admin get the boot for some pretty stupid and incompetent work, but there has been nothing uncovered that is anywhere close to the political skulduggery of what the Christie Admin is guilty of from the Obama camp.

And I dare say, we have had 6 years of the GOP looking... Christie is asking for the benefit of the doubt. Why? has the GOP ever, since day 1 given it to Obama?

You guys are priceless.

When the GOP passed Medicare against Dem wishes, the Dems worked to improve it. Dems did not hold up judicial nominees at anywhere near the level of the GOP. Dems have never filibustered like the GOP. No Dem president used exclusionary signing statements like GW Bush.

Yet you guys come to us and complain that Obama is a dictator?

One day, maybe, the tables will turn. I hope every member of the GOP stands and supports the Dems right to completely shut down the levers of government like they did.

Skud, you're priceless... you can't even admit it's wrong when a GOP leader who mocked the press for even intimating what happened actually happened, indeed a potential presidential candidate, gets caught red handed.

(O)CT(O)PUS said...

The deeper one looks into this story, Governor Kristie Kreme has a history of political retribution:

A former governor, Richard Cody who is a Democrat, was denied a police security detail;

A Rutgers University professor was suddenly denied funding;

A state senator was "uninvited" to an event within his own district.

Or this: “You want to come up here? Come up here,” Governor Kristie Kreme said to one teacher, a fellow Republican, who hesitated until the governor’s security state troopers gave him no choice. Wagging a finger, the donut lectured the man, then dismissed him from the hall.

All staffers take their cues from their leadership. Bridget's bridge jam is certainly consistent with the thuggish style of donut man himself; and I find it hard to believe that he knew none of this.

Shaw Kenawe said...

After reading about the governor's presser yesterday, I guess he wants everyone to believe that "ignorance is Chris."

Shaw Kenawe said...

Eugene Robinson always cuts through the b.s. and gets it right:

"You know a politician is having a bad day when he has to stand before a news conference and plead, “I am who I am, but I am not a bully.”
Frankly, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was unconvincing on that score Thursday as he attempted to contain a widening abuse-of-power scandal. Moreover, Christie displayed a degree of egocentrism that can only be described as stunning. His apologies would have sounded more sincere if he hadn’t portrayed himself as the real victim."

Shaw Kenawe said...


Is Christie now the best known pol with a bully pulpit?

A. Reader said...

Didn't the catty conservative fan boys on their blogs crow about Obama being "Nixonian" during the IRS non-scandal? yep...and all the time they had a very large Nixon wannabe in their backyard? Oh the irony is too much...and it's the reason the GOP is on its way to oblivion...they are too quick to see corruption where it isn't and blind to where it is.

Ema Nymton said...


"... I guess he wants everyone to believe that "ignorance is Chris.""

Really Shaw Kenawe? You are not taking Bridge-gazi serious enough. The poor saps in the Murdoch Media/Fox Networks, RW Hate-Blogispere bubble are absolutely apoplectic in their shock. They have not been able to smear the President and/or H Clinton and that is bad. Have you no compassion for the little cwy baby twits who are soiling themselves?

(sarcasm off)

At this rate of loss, will the RepublicanT Party be able to have any character of national stature to perform in the Fox Network/GOP clown-circus car Presidential nomination debates?

Shaw Kenawe said...


Christie appeals to certain people on the right who go all fuzzy-wobbly inside over a bullying authoritarian mean-boy. Those same folks jumped for joy when some poll showed that Putin was seen as more popular than Obama. Yes. The folks who are the quickest to call anyone slightly left of center a COMMIE! have a major man-crush on the guy who led the KGB! Some even wondering why Obama couldn't be more like him. IOW why can't Obama be MORE LIKE A JACK-BOOTED TOTALITARIAN?

It's hard to figure these folks out, when they're not screaming COMMIE! at lefties, they're meltingly swooning for an actual person who was a super COMMIE over our American president.

This, I think, explains their fascination with a bully like Christie.

skudrunner said...

The media loves to paint Christie a bully. He turned a state around, he gets things done and he offends some people.
Forceful, aggressive people are at the top of the pecking order when it comes to getting tasks accomplished. Yes they will ruffle feathers and we have not had a leader lead from the front in many years. We have experience on the leading from behind approach and it is not good.

The difference between someone being a bully and being forceful is a matter of perception. At least he took responsibility for what his staff did, that in itself is a novel approach.

No Shaw, the point is many, although not all, still believe President Obama is weak. Please do not ask me to explain why. I may disagree with some (many actually) of his policies but I do not consider him weak.

As for Christie, stay tuned. It is quite possible he may emerge even stronger political as a result of how he has handled the situation. I know youse guys will do everything prevent this from happening, but nontheless it just might.

Like I said, stayed tuned.

Good for you.

Shaw Kenawe said...

RN: "No Shaw, the point is many, although not all, still believe President Obama is weak."

SK: Those who see Obama as "weak" are the same folks who admire Putin, the ex-head of the Communist KGB who knows how to deal with his enemies,[and it's not by just "vanquishing" them at the polls. Just look at what he did to a group of female rock singers.] IOW, as I stated above, those same folks who think Obama is weak adore the totalitarian tactics of a thug.

RN: "As for Christie, stay tuned. It is quite possible he may emerge even stronger political as a result of how he has handled the situation."

SK: No one knows. We'll just wait and see.

RN: "I know youse guys will do everything prevent this from happening, but nontheless it just might."

SK: There's nothing "wese guys" can do to prevent Christie from emerging stronger from this that Christie isn't already doing to himself.

As James Carville once said "When your opponent is drowing in the pool, throw him a f**king anvil."

That's very rough politics, but apparently it's the kind of politics Christie and his people like to play.

Karma is a bitch, isn't it.

Leo T. Lyon said...

the jokes the jokers write are hilarious:

found on a con blog:

"The Way I See It said...
Chrsitie said was, he said, heartbroken. Embarrassed. Sad. Disappointed. Humiliated. Did anyone ever hear Obama say any of those things when he was caught in HIS LYING , or his SANDALS!"

I don't think the above was meant as a joke, but it funnier than any of the parodies I've seen here.

A. Reader said...

To answer RN:

"As Dave Weigel noted a few hours before Christie's lengthy press conference Thursday, "The media's ready for a Chris Christie comeback story." And there is one reason and one reason only that Christie may even be extended a comeback opportunity at this point -- he is a political celebrity who figures heavily in a future presidential race. Because of this, the media would like to see Christie go through his own private Stations Of The Cross. Should he perform this ritual to their satisfaction, they shall lift him up, dust him off, and set him back on that 2016 path.

I'll warn you: If you resolve yourself today to taking a drink every time someone says, "This scandal has made Christie a better politician," you might not make it to 2016 yourself.

And so, all over the media landscape, and long before Christie took the stage on Thursday, the terms by which the comeback story would be permitted were already set: Christie had to apologize, he had to use the word "sorry" in so doing, he had to smoke his errant deputy chief of staff, and he had to put on a convincing demonstration of both anger at the whole sodding situation and personal contrition."

Les Carpenter said...

Shaw, "youse" guys is something I picked up in NY, no inference to organized crime. I liked the wese guys though. :-)

"As James Carville once said "When your opponent is drowing in the pool, throw him a f**king anvil."

Yeah, Carville is a pretty tough guy. Probably would make a god thug. I like Mattalin much better.

"That's very rough politics, but apparently it's the kind of politics Christie and his people like to play."

Yeah, no s*it. LBJ and RMN were pros at it.

Ben Gazzi said...

The media will see to it that Hillary gets a pass on Benghazi; Christie will get no such pass -- even if the bridge scandal is a not a scandal after all.

Because having your own people screw up traffic on the busiest commuter traffic bridge in the country for FOUR DAYS and having emergency vehicles late to emergencies, plus engaging in public endangerment is no scandal when a Republican bully does it. No.

What the whiners on the right will never, never understand is that there is NO evidence that what happened in Benghazi was a political dirty tricks payback scheme to get back at political enemies. It was a horrible tragedy, just like the horrible tragedy in Lebanon during Reagan's administration that killed 250 marines. No. The bagger find "scandals" (or "SANDALS") only when it suits their victimization mentality.

Rachel Maddow is one smart woman, Ducky. I think she's on to the real reason Christie's people play a dirty revenge trick on Ft. Lee, New Jersey. That makes sense.

Oh. And the reason people like skudrunner keep harping on Behghazi and all the other non-scandals is because in their tiny little turnip hearts they believe Mr. Obama is a lying, scheming, "weak" dictatorial tyrant. And, DAMMIT!, none of their wished-for scandals have worked for them.

This one involving Christie, The Bully, OTOH, is the real thing.

The laughing at the schoolkids stuck on the buses part will stick in people's craws. That chilling little detail shows what kind of vicious f**ksticks Christie and his crew are. From Salon:

"In another correspondence, this time between Wildstein and an unknown interlocutor (the documents are partially redacted), Wildstein dismisses his correspondent’s concerns over how the lane closure and the ensuing traffic jams affected New Jersey residents.

“I feel bad about the kids,” the unknown person texts Wildstein. Wildstein responds, texting, “They are the children of Buono voters.” Barbara Buono was Christie’s Democratic opponent in 2013′s gubernatorial election."

This is a for real scandal.

And by the way, this vicious swaggering revenge-monster, you just know that everyone on his staff is terrified of him, they have the most reason to be afraid of him, they are within arms reach. You think anyone who works for this vicious petty vindictive fuck would EVER go out on a limb and freelance something like this?

skud says,
"The difference between someone being a bully and being forceful is a matter of perception."

A matte of perception, my ass!

Bully: a person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.

forceful: (esp. of a person or argument) strong and assertive; vigorous and powerful.

Screw your perception!

Shaw Kenawe said...


Exactly. Anytime a Teapublican gets hit with a scandal, the TPs fall back on Benghazi, and ignore the corruption in their own backyard.

George C., No thank you.

prommie, I agree. They did this for 4 days. I'm pretty sure it was a sick political payback stunt. Now that it backfired and made Christie look like a thug, the TPs want to deflect the attention and blame the Blah in the White House. BENGHAZI!

Jerry Critter, skud always comes up with some lame excuse when a GOPer screws up. I'm surprised he didn't blame Obama for what Christie did. BENGHAZI!

I referred to Christie as a troll the other day. Considering the other clear instances of bullying, and that a woman died as perhaps an indirect result of this latest "prank", I think we are well beyond troll, and well into Shakespearian Villain. Treachery, callousness, and a complete void of empathy for those outside his circle. I'm thinking of Hamlet's Claudius - and he just fired Rosencrantz and Guildenstern as cover.

According to a Mother Jones article, those who have been identified and confirmed to have been involved include...

[1] Bridget Anne Kelly: A top Christie aide who is said to have orchestrated the closure of the two access lanes on the New Jersey side of the George Washington Bridge. She has been fired.

[2] Bill Sepien: Christie's campaign manager. Christie instructed him to withdraw his name from consideration for chair of the New Jersey Republican Party.

[3] Michael Drewniak: Christie's spokesman.

[4] Bill Baroni: The deputy executive director of the port authority. Baroni has resigned & retained a criminal defense attorney. A Mother Jones article describes him as having "close ties to Christie".

[5] David Wildstein: The director of interstate capital projects for the port authority. Wildstein has resigned & retained a criminal defense attorney. He is also described as having "close ties to Christie".

The article explains that these people were implicated due to email messages that "were sent mostly from staffers' private accounts and did not loop in Christie".

Shaw Kenawe said...


Christie did this to himself. But if you read the hysterics on the conservative blogs, they're blaming liberals for it. They blamed liberals for Sarah Palins epic FAILURES, when it so clearly was her own ignorant self who was responsible. ANd it is Chris Christie who surrounded himself with the kind of sordid people who would endanger hundreds of people to take political revenge.

They're howling about Benghazi and the IRS, which has nothing to do with this, and is nowhere near as repugnant as what Christie's people did. Benghazie was a terrible tragedy, and the IRS story was a fubar by local IRS zealots.

They can't tell the difference.

I'm not surprised.

Shaw Kenawe said...


This is going to get worse. The GOP tried to pin some sort of scandal on Obama for Benghazi and the IRS story, but nothing underhanded came up. If there were a scintilla of any sort of evidence of wrong-doing, it would have come out by now because of the right's rancid hatred of Obama.

The fact that both Benghazi and the IRS situation were not conspiracies like this Christie scandal has sent the right into orbits of outrage.

It's rather pathetic.

Even Jeffrey Toobin, CNN's senior legal analyst thinks that any further investigation into Benghazi is looking at a "non-story" since "there is nothing there, in terms of a scandal."
It's rather pathetic how far a party would go to make the President of the United States of America look bad. To implicate the president and Hillary Clinton.
This is a non-story. Yes of course Benghazi was a tragedy. It's not a scandal. But the Republicans are going to investigate this until the end of the Obama administration, and most likely until the Cows Come Home! But they will find nothing, because there's nothing to be found there. There's no scandal, there never was, this was all BS to make the president look bad and to make Hillary look like a inept women who shouldn’t be allowed to be President. . These are brave, honorable people who were killed in the line of duty, a tragedy? Yes of course, but nothing more.
At some point Congress needs to realize that we have a country to run. We keep re-hashing Obamacare, and calling for more "scandal" investigations.

Obamacare cost/benefit is debatable, depends on your political sway. But the constant re-hashing of Benghazi and Benghazi and more Benghazi is not beneficial. It is wasting our government time. I believe that other issues I've mentioned Obamacare will have much more impact on our future than Benghazi so why are we not talking about t\it? We are being distracted on purpose.

I posted the above-comment found at a conservative's blog.

Check out the comment above it and the time stamp, then read the faker "Ellie Rosenfield" copying word for word what I wrote and the time stamp, then read how E.R. pretends to be a liberal posting on a conservative's blog.

It's some sort of stupid game the person pretending to be "Ellie Rosenfield" is playing. The same E.R. posted a comment on the blog post comment section with the New Yorker cover on it, telling me that I shouldn't post so much on the subject of Chris Christie's scandal.

Is it because it's Saturday and they've given the inmates a weekend pass?

What idiocy.

Les Carpenter said...

Indeed, child's play.

The Prophet Dervish Z Sanders said...

If Christie lied and he actually did have knowledge (or approve) of the lane closures, then YES, I hope that comes out. As a prior commenter said, however, those responsible probably acted on their own and didn't involve Christie so he'd have plausible deniability. IMO he'll weather this controversy and (if he wants to run for the presidency in 2016), he'll be able to do so without this causing him much (if any) problems. He'll probably even get some "moderate" Democrat votes.

Who knows though... perhaps there is a reason why the Cons don't want us talking about this? Over on another blog our mutual friend Rusty is throwing a conniption fit over the coverage this story is getting on MSNBC.

The Prophet Dervish Z Sanders said...

From the post above this one...

Shaw: If Christie knew nothing about this whole thing as he claimed in his presser on Wednesday, why would he have done that? [talked with Andrew Cuomo and asked him to get Patrick Foye, the executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, to back off investigating the Fort Lee bridge closure... according to the WSJ] Christie obviously has been lying.

Read the comment above after I left my comment. Looks like my assumption was wrong and that there is proof of lying by Christie. Interesting. This may still go nowhere, but I hope not. That the bully Christie was aware of this beforehand sounds quite plausible, and his presidential hopes should be dashed if that was the case.
