Following the abuses of power by President Obama, Chris Christie's "Bridge-gate" demonstrates why we need limited government. It’s why we need smaller government. It’s why we need all kinds of safeguards to keep government locked in its cage and tethered to its post – and why the out-of-control government we have now in America (at all levels) is so dangerous.
The most important contribution the “Bridge-Gate” scandal makes to the 2016 Republican presidential contest is not what Chris Christie knew and when he knew it. It is that “Bridge-Gate” confirms that Chris Christie surrounds himself with people who share the same kind of thinking that led to the extra-constitutional Obama Administration abuses in the IRS targeting of conservatives and other scandals.
Gov. Chris Christie finds himself fending off a local scandal that has become an early stumbling block on his road to a run for president in 2016. He claims Dems are making a mountain out of a molehill. All indications are that the Repub. has nobody to blame but himself for his current woes.
