Well, you don’t fall further in somebody’s estimation than Christie just fell in this guy’s. Promoted by Rosi.
Ron Fournier, a generally conservative columnist for the National Journal, is the latest to swim away from Chris Christie after Bridgegate.
A year ago, I wrote: “The smartest move in politics today is to move against Washington and the two major parties. And the smartest man in politics may be Chris Christie.” I take it back.
Huh. Wonder why?
Rather than stay true to his post-partisan image, Christie ran a hyper-political governor’s office that focused relentlessly on a big re-election win to position him for a 2016 presidential race. In this zero-sum gain culture, Christie enabled (if not directly ordered) an infamous abuse of power: the closure of traffic lanes on the George Washington Bridge in a fit of political retribution.
If not criminal, it was pretty damn stupid.
Oh, that’s why.
