New Jersey Star-Ledger: If Christie Lied, He Should 'Resign or Be Impeached'

The fat man is not going to survive. From the Star-Ledger:
Forget about the White House in 2016. The question now is whether Gov. Chris Christie can survive as governor.

David Wildstein, the man who ordered the George Washington Bridge lane closures, is now pointing the finger directly at Gov. Chris Christie, saying the governor knew about the lane closures in September when they occurred.

That directly contradicts Christie account at his Jan. 13 press conference when he made this statement: "I had no knowledge of this — of the planning, the execution or anything about it... I first found out about it after it was over."

If this charge proves true, then the governor must resign or be impeached. Because
that would leave him so drained of credibility that he could not possibly govern effectively. He would owe it to the people of New Jersey to stop the bleeding and quit. And if he should refuse, then the Legislature should open impeachment hearings.


  1. 'Seems appropriate. A good standard for all in office. Of course that leaves no one in office.

  2. Of course, embracing Christie being impeached or forced to resign on an all too typical petty action can be discussed in mainstream media outlets, but saying the same of our domestic spying, IRS targeting of political enemies, and drone killing of American citizens and innocent foreign nationals president is kook talk of the fringe element.

    Some years, I really hate this country.

  3. As long as we don't have to see him in the primary debates, I don't mind see him slink off after the rest of his term. Probably a lot of jenga blocks that would be pulled along with his, might bring the whole pile down!

  4. Toast. Done. Over.

    "The statement said Christie stands by his position that he "first learned lanes were closed when it was reported by the press." "

    NOT: Christie denies any involvement in any scheme, plan, device or conspiracy (did I leave anything out?...) to block traffic for whatever reason. He merely reiterates that he heard of the LANE CLOSINGS from the press.



  5. A tale of two blimps. Both in NJ, first the Hindenburg and now Blimp Christie. Both prove the adage "the bigger they are, the harder they fall. Oh the humanity!

  6. wonder why the MSM suddenly decided to check into fat boy's murky little world? i mean it's not like them to start looking into stuff.

  7. Clearing the field for Rand in 2026

  8. Impeached? He asserted the Obama defense (he read about in the news paper)! Following the Obama standard, I'd say he's Presidential material now. We now know he can lie and isn't afraid to use the power of government against his foes.

  9. There goes the Super Bowl! Useless fat bastard, play on.

  10. "If this charge proves true".

    Hey, whatever happened to trial by newspaper headline?
    It's not good enough anymore?
