You see, very few can get away with lying and of course the Governor was lying when he said he knew nothing about the bridge closing. I was actually proud of him as a republican for sticking it to that candy assed mayor for not complying when his Lt. Governor told her to support the governor’s development project.
When the shit started hitting the fan, and had Christie used some good sense, he would have called me for advice. I would have said “Look Tubby. You can’t just lie your way out of this and blame someone who will take the fall like a good soldier as Scooter Libby did. You need a good excuse. Look what happened to Nixon and the whole Watergate mess. Had Nixon told the “truth” and said “hell yeah I ordered the break in. I thought commies were involved” he would have been labled a hero for fighting liberal commies. He would have enjoyed the rest of his term in comfort knowing that real Americans loved him for sticking it to the commies.
Christie could have told the truth without a good excuse as Mayor Daly would have. When asked about the bridge closing Tubby could have simply said “If they don’t like it, they can kiss my ass”. Christie’s standing amongst everyone who hates stuff (typical republican like me, as well as most religious zealots and easily duped fools who think Obama will soon be knocking on their doors to take their guns and brainwash their womenfolk into dating black guys) would have skyrocketed. Any lie or misdeed is acceptable as long as it’s done to screw a liberal.
Sadly Chris Christie is no Ronald Reagan. Only Reagan could lie his ass off and still be beloved. Amazing how much ignorance we republicans can tolerate as long as we’re told the bullshit we want to hear. Some would say the same about Bill Clinton but if you pay attention, republicans never apologize for Iran-Contra or allowing the slimy Oliver North to have all the power and influence he did. But bring up Monica Lewinsky and democrats trip all over themselves apologizing for Clinton’s human foibles and weakness.
Unfortunately Tubby didn’t call me for advice and soon the truth will come out. He will finish his term as New Jersey governor but will fade into obscurity on the national level. He won’t even rate a guest analyst job with Fox News because he’s been exposed as the weak kneed twerp he really is. Much like former RNC Chairman Michael Steele.
Chris Christie has had his day in the sun. We republicans needed a fat guy as our face for awhile anyway to show our “tolerance” for the weight challenged. We’ll parade out Marco Rubio or Bobby Jindal, and a couple female representatives from time to time to show our diversity so Christie has served his purpose to our cause. We’ll end up with the usual rich white guy as our nominee in 2016 but in a sad way it’s too bad Christie didn’t seek my advice before his ultimate implosion. Taft was a fat republican, the kind we think about when thinking about republicans and it would have been a grand bit of nostalgia to have another one leading our ticket.
Sigh. If only Tubby would have listened.
