Crucifying Christie

Shamefully this is how far our priorities have fallen in America today. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is getting crucified in the media about the traffic jams on the George Washington Bridge last September. He stated that he had no part in lane closures that caused these major jams. But the media, especially The New York Times, are still blaming him.

Why would Gov. Christie, who has aspirations to run for the presidency knowingly be involved in this scandal, knowing full well that the liberal media would crush his dreams?

He has apologized to the people of Fort Lee and Democratic Mayor Mark Sokolich. He also fired his deputy chief of staff, Bridget Anne Kelly, who lied to him but played a part in these lane closures. That’s way more than President Barack Obama has done, especially with Fast and Furious and Benghazi, where a total of five American heroes were slain. This doesn’t include his other scandals that the media have forgotten about.

If the media continue to put the blame on Gov. Christie then maybe they should also put the blame on President Barack Obama for his scandals, including the Internal Revenue Service, the National Security Agency, Obamacare, the Affordable Care Act website, the economy and 47 million Americans on food stamps. Today’s media should be fair and balanced, but unfortunately it’s not.
