5. Wow - been watching Chris Hayes. They quote this article (as I think Chris Matthews did, too)
and it goes WAAAAAAY beyond just what's in this article. A quote from one of the NJ Dems from whom Barbara Buono sought fundraising help - who told her he was literally afraid of getting on christie's bad side because "this guy likes to hurt people." BAM! And Steven Fulop, the mayor of Jersey City (the one whose name was said, in the infamous emails, to be on the list next to Fort Lee's unfortunate target, Mayor Mark Sokolich), described all kinds of petty little slaps-in-the-face dealt to him after he said he voted for Barbara Buono. What a schmuck!!!! Looks like he's finally getting his. And I couldn't be happier! LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing an asshole bully brought down!

19. They're the ones who really make me steamed. But it was very revealing listening to Barbara Buono
on Chris Hayes' show this evening. She recalled calling some of them attempting to generate donations for her campaign and was told repeatedly that they didn't dare risk the wrath of christie - wouldn't dare give her more than the under-the-radar $300 - because "this guy likes to hurt people." WTF kind of way is THAT to run a state? I remember reading a quote referring to bush/cheney and the iron-fisted way they ran things - and how much they appreciated intimidating their opposition. And I think it was dick cheney who appreciated a policy dating back to Roman times or some such (maybe it was Caligula or somebody like that?) and the key quote was - "let them hate, as long as they fear." Fear is a formidable weapon, and too many bad guys know and appreciate - AND use it.

I guess this was christie's thing, too. And yeah, it can gain you "allies," but they're paper thin, and they resent how ham-handed you've been to them, and they don't forget easily.

3. Just imagine the Sunday talk shows.

I would be shocked if they all didn't have a we must excuse poor victimized Christie theme.

5. OMG. Christy has been leaning on people. He is a gangster, who can and will literally squash you.

This time his vindictiveness did damage to his own people and all those others who depended on that bridge. He is corrupt and seems to have committed a criminal act.

6. National Democrat party officials and local NJ democrats

supporting Christie openly and by being silent about his many transgressions is the height of hypocrisy and cowardice. Shame, I heap it upon your corruption. Just proves money buys anyone, everywhere. Period.

7. I am 5'3" tall. I was the smallest kid in my class

You could have held me back two years and I still would have been the smallest kid in my class.

I am something of an authority on bullies. Let me say that Governor Christie is a bully.
