We are two years away from an election. Polls mean nothing at this point.   

The woe is me attitude coming from the GOP is quite funny to me.

And now you want to complain that its not getting page 1 coverage? Lol

If you believe him that he knew nothing then I have some land in FL to sell you.

C'mon! This is ridiculous. The conservative playbook on this is so predictable.

Any time a Dem scandal doesn't dominate headlines 100% of the time, every day of the year = MEDIA BIAS!!!




(Also, if you think the giant media companies that run nearly all of the media in this country care more about political ideology than making money, I think you'd have a very hard time proving that one. Chasing after scandals make more people want to read/watch and it brings in more $.)

Im not complaining about it not getting page 1 coverage.. Im just stating a fact that its not a story anymore.... so theres nothing there... is my point.... No proof no story... sorry to bust your bubble.
 
Its just funny how this story broken right after the polls came out... yeah the Polls  meant nothingConfused.. hahahaha.
 
What woe are you talkin about??? The same woe that the Dems are having with the ACA?? not even close.
 
So you believe he knew something about.. you have no proof but thats your opinion... So let me ask you something do you believe the President knew about the IRS, NSA. JROCKS.. pet peave ..Bengazi.. and the ACA fiasco....or do yu believe him that he found out about it in the papers... LOL!!

It's not my pet peeve - I'm stating a reality.
 
I dabble in alleged conservative and liberal media sources, and simply tracking how often Benghazi is repeated and drummed on and on about in the conservative media sources is astounding.
 
It's a nontroversy. It really is. But it's something with concrete results and consequences that many conservatives are using as easy way to attack the president. Which I understand - but it's been discredited as a controversy over and over. Yet the nonsense continues so I continue to bring it up as well as a point of showing the absurdity.
 
The IRS? yes - but if you took a second to read into it - "liberal groups" were targeted just as "conservative groups" were. Also no controversy - but because a Dem is in office, any perceived attack on conservative or "patriot" groups is seen as controversial and partisan - opposite happened when Mr. Bush was in office. Its utter nonsense either way.
 
NSA? yes - and so did his predecessor(s)...if ANYONE really thinks were not being watched/monitored they're foolish. I'm confident it's been going on for quite some time. Denying NSA surveilling is flat out stupid.
 
ACA Fiasco? How so...working pretty well so far. At least when you consider facts and figures not reported by the Curvy Couch Gang Embarrassed
 
What liberal agenda do you refer to? Seriously...I'm curious.

Ummm.... I think this story has been brewing for a long time if you follow the timeline. It broke more nationally because they finally got the emails released. Besides, wouldn't it help liberals more if it came out while Christie was running for re-election?

I'm not sure you can just prove bias by counting number of people. There's probably more men in the news and probably more white people too. Is the news biased towards white males? Probably except white males are more predominantly conservative. So what does that prove? 

Can you prove bias in more substantial ways? I mean, this is a topic we go around and around on here. I'm sure that by searching through the archive I could find this topic probably close to 200 times. No one's mind will be changed though, by anything that's said here.

I won't wade into a lot of this other stuff in this post. But, yes, polls do not matter that early in the game. Besides, stop blaming the media for reporting a story. Isn't it Christie's fault that this story exists? If you're so worried about the media attacking conservatives to ensure that liberals "win" (whatever that really means) shouldn't you be upset that your GOP politicians are just like the Dems? Keep getting themselves into trouble? The only reason why we're talking about media bias etc is because Christie and his administration did something stupid, corrupt and potentially illegal. 

The media didn't make him do it.

Again what did Christie do?? His Aide was involved in this, but right now there is no proof Christie is involved.. If there is please enlighten me.  Thats all im saying you guys say Obama isnt involved in anything because theres no proof. wheres the proof on Christie..... as of now there isnt any.
 
 
 
You guys think I really care about this. I really don't. Politicians suck!!! They dont care about us at all and that cracks me up. You guys sit here and argue about the how Obama has done this and that to improve this country and the reallity is he hasnt done anything to help this country, all he has done to do is divide this country on race and money, also the politicians have put us in debt up to our eyeballs (17 trillion and counting). Dont get me wrong the Republicans have done crap either its a dual blame here... fellas.

Ok..I'm back.. Sorry that work thing gets in the way. I hate having to work harder to pay for those 49% that want this cradle to grave society...

So where do I begin???   First why do I continue this thread if I don't care ??? Well you see when people blame or accuse someone like Chris Chrisite or anyone for that matter with out any proof, (if there is you guys still haven't brought it to the able) it kind of bothers me so I would like to chime every once in a while. As for Chris Christie, I don't care if he runs for president or not .. They all(politicians that is) suck and again as I said earlier don't have the best interest of the people of this country at all.

As for Obama.. I brought him up in a question I asked CMSQUARE, not you. But since you are concerned about it and he hasnt answered please re-read the context and the question an answer if you like. If not don't worry about it.

Have a great evening

So.... For those of you who think that Christie is "in trouble" due to the bridge lane closures - do you think Clinton is in trouble due to State Department's  lack of oversight/intervention/attention to security in Libyia?  I mean in light of recent airing of Senate hearing documents that indicate there was knowledge of security issues, but no action taken to protect the Consulate in Benghazi? 
If Christie is responsible and no longer a viable presidential candidate because of his staff/aides plotting to close the bridge, is Clinton no longer a viable candidate because her staff/aides did not provide added security to Libyia leading up to the anniversary of 9/11?

Proof?

Proof that a politician was lying when he said he didn't know about what his aids were doing?

His lips were moving.  What more proof do you need?

You are way more naive than I first thought Mike.

I really could not give a rat's heiney about Christie. I doubt he would be the candidate of my choice. I do question the intellectual honesty of those who would condemn him out of hand yet have no problem in supporting Clinton AND continuing to argue that Obama had no knowledge (not to mention hands on input) into the many "issues" (if you object to scandals) of his administration.
