    Since Today is Elvis Presley’s Birthday…..Then the NJ Bridge-Gate has finally hit the Media…..though begrudgingly……the ONLY song in my head is SUSPICIOUS MIND.

    I wonder if LL would later have a Montage to EPresley…..for the Music only.

    8:28 and TRMS is still talking about Christie ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Local Reporters are the ones doing their Job…per TRMS.

    Hmm……You can’t fool all the people, all of the TIME, Christie. I wonder what Shaq would say today? He had done a political ad for Christie calling him a GREAT man. Sheesh. Hmm? Barbara Bouno tried her level best to expose Christie and her fellow Dems disappointed her. Without Dems voting for Christie just 2 months ago……Christie will now be looking for more serious charges. Now the investigations will go slowly and charges if any would come much later and it will cost tax payers much more.

    OK night owls – I was busy listening to Jay Carney on the last thread – and someone starts a new thread. Carney is a saint – I’m only through a part of the presser and he is amusing, reliable, on topic etc etc

    Tonight’s menu:

    Beef roast, with potatoes, carrots, and onions, in the slow cooker.

    And that’s pretty much it. Oh, with a good Italian red.

    If MSM has any doubt why Pete Souza is the photographer of record, and none of them are, all they have to do is compare the picture at the top of this post with the amateurish ones from today’s lunch!!! If they have eyes to see…….
    Those lunch pictures would be excellent examples to use in photography class of what NOT to do……If they even had cropped those, and taken out some of the distractions….or……nah. Glad they let their subpar work be shown!!!

      The press have the same equipment that Pete Souza has. The Press accuses the Obama ADM using the word, propaganda. Just comparing the pics on the last thread by the WHPC to Pete’s and the propaganda is much suited to describe the NY/DC Photo-Journos.

    No Body’s Fool is another song that will sure Go well with this NJ Bridge-Gate.

    Fun, Fun, Fun……the Beach Boys song is okay here too.

    Christie has been getting away with a heck of a lot for over 4 yrs.

    Barbara B was Right on the Money here.

    Christie has 42% approval on Econ Job in NJ yet he won in a landslide.

    Performing of TV, screaming, shouting are “reality” performance style…..People got fooled. But Barbara B knew and tried to warn NJ. They didn’t listen.

    • January 8, 2014 at 10:18 pm

      There was more going on than just the voters of NJ in last year’s Gov election.

      See Barbara Buono’s (excellent) concession speech.

      It was infuriating that Dems let the NJ GOP machine and MSM wrestle control of that election from the voters.

      I wanted to smack every smirking person on TV who touted Christie 2016.

      Not surprised about Rachel. She’s been on this story for weeks now.

      Good that NJ reporters are doing their job. Said my piece about traffic on previous threads.

      I just wrote about her below Nena – what a travesty that the democrats did not get behind her campaign.

    • January 8, 2014 at 10:22 pm

      Are you referring to Barbara Boxer? All I’m seeing is a white screen. . . ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Christie Love? Hmm? The Truth and nothing, but the Truth. Yes, indeed.

    S.E. Cupp is now saying that if Christie is involved, he should resign…..per Mediaite.


    They will force him out for he is their man. Hmm? Popcorn. Yes.

    I see what you did there, Chips. Gave us a perfectly candid Pete Souza photo, to take our minds off the staged ones the President and Vice President gave the media jackals earlier. Ha! But at first glance, it looked to my tired eyes as though Eric Holder had his leg on the President’s leg … first I thought Whoa! and then I thought Nice socks. Been around a toddler all day is my excuse. The toddler just told me when he goes to school, I have to go with him and Mommy has to go with him, and I said Why not bring the whole family, and he said Yes.

      can you imagine all the amazing conversation pete has heard throughout the years. i was just looking through some of his ronald reagan work, and pete is right in the room during so many big moments of the 1980s too. so odd to see again the creepy sociopaths such as don regen and friends, in the same rooms the obamas occupy now, with reagan and to think pete had to put up with those murderous thugs. pete’s work though is equally good even with the old film cameras!

      even though he probably has signed the most ironclad non-disclosure agreement in history and with the biggest penalties, what i wouldn’t give to have a few beers with pete and listen to his honest assesment of both presidents and their administrations. he seems to really respect president obama and family…just sayin…

      Many thanks to Christie for taking the media’s attention off Gates and Woodward. After all, they all have the attention span of a gnat.

          Too bad they’re all peaking so early – before the next two elections. But there will be more of ’em crawling out from under the rocks by then.

        Thinking more about bridgegate, I believe it to be a distraction from Obamacare by Republican Fat Chance Chris Christie.

          January 8, 2014 at 10:27 pm

          Yes, that’s so true. No one’s complained about Obamacare all day (actually, that’s just a guess, but I like to think it!). But, as you’re probably intimating, the success that is Obamacare hasn’t been talked about, either, so it’s up to us to keep that going. #Forward

    I just watched Barbara Bueno on MSNBC – so well spoken – an absolute delight – the people of NJ preferred Christie? Some serious problems with US elections – that the democrats ignored her campaign is almost criminal – and given who they elected – the mind boggles

    • 79 jacquelineoboomer
      January 8, 2014 at 10:21 pm

      I think there were all kinds of inside politics going on, for the Democrats – I forget – but I’m guessing she wouldn’t have pulled the really stupid tricks he’s been pulling as governor.

        January 8, 2014 at 10:32 pm

        isn’t this whole bridge thing about retribution against a democrat who wouldn’t endorse
        “copter” christie (do people even remember that one anymore?!?) we can only guess how mch they were strongarming and threatening other democrats across the state, as they did to this mayor. i suspect a lot of the democratic support was from these same kind of actions.

    • January 8, 2014 at 10:33 pm

      Agree. She was compelling when she appeared on @lawrence last March.

      An inspiring life story.

      Also agree with J’OB. See my response to Nena above.

      BTW, thanks for your response to my walk down memory lane re: Phil Everly, R.I.P., even though I was hours late (as usual).

    A couple of tee-hee tweets about Christie’s #Bridgegate — and you don’t have to click on HuffPo (that site gives me headaches).

    Good question from Richard Wolfe on Lawrence, why hasn’t the annoucement made that the aide Mrs Bridges had been “put on leave” pending the outcome of investigation or just that she had been fired?

    Good evening TOD family,
    I do hope that everyone is having a great day, evening and night.

    Just saw Steve S., the republican strategist for MSNBC. Ok, here is what MSM is going to try and do, link President Obama “not true” IRS scandal to Bridge gate. Steve S. just said; well President Obama didn’t know about the IRS scandal, and there is no evidence that Christie knew anything about what the “other” individuals did.

    They are writing the script; lump the two together and the people will believe that Christie, like President Obama, didn’t know anything. This is BS.BS..BS and they are trying to lie Christie _____ out of this. His karma is back in his face BIG TIME. I will never forget; welcomed President Obama when he needed help with Sandy, and as soon as the repukes complained about him smooging with the President, he didn’t hesitate to get on the channels and speak ill of the President; he is not a leader , he doesn’t know what he is doing, Mitt is the better candidate.

    Well, well, well, Christie-you are out, whether you like it or not. I hope your head explodes as you build your mountain of lies.

    Who’s your daddy now? President Obama is alive to see some of his enemies become his “foot stool (23 Psalm).”

    Who is occupying the White House? I will tell you if you don’t know-it’s the “greatest” President that this country has ever had, and you will “NEVER” sit behind the oval desk. Wake up Democrats, you voted for the clown bully Christie and you got what you wanted. When will you hold true to the democratic cause? A mother to someone, a grandmother to others, she was a human being. 91 years of age and she is gone, and you Christie will forever carry her name on your shoulders, now go and lift that.

      and of course, they won’t ever mention that there was no “scandal” with the IRS. it was completely fabricated to create yet another anti-obama storyline, which as you point out they are still using today, and i’m assuming with no pushback from the “journalist” on the program.
