I'm surfing various sources right now, and all they've said so far in regards to these emails is that they 'recently surfaced' and were released by 'news sources.' Which sources? Where are the names?

We have names of whistleblowers and insiders in both them Bush and Obama admins. Why should this be any different?

This is what I call a Rising Star Controversy. We see it all the time whenever a politician or even athlete starts to gain notoriety: someone is always in the wings to accuse him or her of some atrocity.

Bush -- Katrina. Obama comes into the public eye, and racists and birthers bleed out of the woodwork. Palin's daughter gets knocked up and everyone loses their minds.

Christine's situation consists of
A. Being a rising star
B. ALLEGATIONS

So who put out the emails? What am I overlooking here? I've defended Obama. I'll defend Christie, too.

I would suspect the Tea Party of a behind-the-scenes smear campaign before the Dems, honestly. Christie is bipartisan and would work across the aisle, imo. They want someone in there who is going to push a rabidly conservative ideology.

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?

Possibly. Let's not forget it's a two-way street.

Note who wants to tar and feather the guy before the facts are known.......the regressive extremists. Christie is a moderate, therefore the extremists on both sides don't like them because he'll work with both sides for (gasp) the greater good of the country.

What the extremists are displaying is fear.

DEMS might work with Christie the way they wouldn't with the idiot Romney or rabid Rand. And the Dems would wait till closer to election to run a smear campaign. Tea partiers are too explosive for patience.

If he did it, he should resign. Two wrongs don't make a right.

No, I mean the 'concept' is the same... her and Christie!

The libturds have to 'destroy' someone if he/she is a threat. Doesn't matter if it is a lie.

So, you believe that Obama should resign as well for his actions punishing Americans to advance his political position?

And do you think the cons are any different?
It's called politics. The name of the game is to destroy your opponents.

Sarah Palin didn't need help derailing her own campaign.

I believe Obama should resign over Guantanamo Bay and the drone strikes he refuses to discuss.

But now we are talking about Gov Christie, not Obama.

My guess would be that the agency which SUBPOENAED those emails RIGHTLY shared them (not "leaked" them) with the press.

You said that Christie should resign if he were involved, but now you don't want to hold Obama to the same level of responsibility for a similar offense against the American people?
How odd.

That's not at all what she said. Take off the partisan blinders and open your ears for once.

Christie's top aides that HE hired orchestrated the lane closures to punish a politician for not endorsing Christie. That much is clear from the emails.

One school of thought is that they did so on his orders, and contributed to Granny's death.. Another is that he appointed people who acted criminally without his consent, and contributed to Granny's death. If you wish to give Christie the benefit of the doubt, that puts you category two.

How beneficial is that? I don;t see a political future for him under EITHER scenario - and I challenge you to provide another. Go ahead. Benefit Humpty Dumpty with a third explanation of events. :)
