True! But, some "I don't knows" are more believable than others.

A question I've asked that cons don't seem to want to touch is: If Christie were actually elected, what other event could do more to decisively split the GOP?


Christie wouldn't get elected as with a split GOP. His election would not split the GOP. HIs actions AFTER the election could. Look at Boehner and Mconnell. Their actions are splitting the GOP.

AFTER the election is what I was referring to.

Perhaps, but it's more likely a Dim. I doubt there are many TEA Party people working in/for Christie.
But in Jersey? Dimocrats infect every corner of that State.

Personally, I think Christie is an ass, and he probably was behind this 100%.
But I see no difference between them closing a traffic lane, and how Obama closed all the National Parks and Monuments during the government shutdown.
Politicians use the citizens as pawns in their game of power. Why is anyone surprised?


Congratulations. You wrote half a good post. You wouldn't know the difference between you ass and a hole in the ground. One was done for purely partisan reasons, the other was a government shutdown you moron!

Yea the point was as I had originally said, "Pretty sure you can't use FOIA to get personal emails and text msgs."

Perhaps they were skirting usual channels. I use both my .gov email and a gmail account.

At this point, no one is denying these emails emanated from Christie's office. So, what is the contention?

All these staffers resigned. There goes some FAT salaries....

"The Associated Press reported Monday that the $8.9 million payroll in the Governor’s Office under Gov. Chris Christie is nearly $2 million more than the payroll under former Gov. Jon S. Corzine and includes 34 people making more than $100,000 while Corzine had 18 people making six figures."


Awesome siggy!

What is your contention - that these emails that even Christie acknowledges as real somehow are not?

Seems the conservative brain is wired to deny reality by cooking up new conspiracy theories, without limit!

LOL OK!

But, I meant something plausible.


On the flip side of your question, anyone getting elected from the Republican side will split the Republican party. Either a moderate would get elected, or a fire breathing batshit crazy freak like a Bachmann would get elected. Either way, the GOP will be in an uproar.

ps, I don't think ANY Republican getting elected is "plausible" (the party is already split).

Let's hope not! REAL scandal in the GOP may trim the con compulsion to create new wishful thinking type scandals.

That's their claim. They'd have had to file for one. Go debunk it, fool!

Does lack of denial mean immediate guilt?

That's simply not true. I can think of 3 off the top of my head that wouldn't split the party... Scott Walker, Rubio or Lee.
