Raising Deflector Shields

You had to know that this would be the GOP response to the New Jersey bridge story:

In an interview on Meet the Press, [RNC Chair Reince] Priebus argued that Americans would forgive Christie after his administration closed part of the busiest bridge to hurt his opponents because “we all make mistakes.”

“They’re forgiving when you take ownership, you take corrective action. And that’s what Chris Christie showed,” the chairman explained. “He stood there for 111 minutes in an open dialog with the press. Now, only if Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton would give us 111 seconds of that, would we find out some of what we want to find out about Obamacare, Benghazi, the IRS. I mean, Chris Christie has been totally open here.”

Translation: “Oh, look!  Benghazi!  IRS!  A kitty!”

That was a little too much even for David Gregory.

“There’s some deflection going on here, and I respect your position,” Gregory observed.

Very observant, David.  Now get up off your knees and do the job of a journalist.

Tom Tomorrow nails it.

  1. We can always say “The GW Bridge! Remember the GW Bridge!” and now it seems we’ll be reading about another FBI investigation: what did Mr. Christie do with all the Sandy money? The question becomes did he use it to make an ad featuring him and his family for political self promotion? I do think Mr. Christie had better find another avenue for his ego than national politics.
