A federal investigation of the George Washington Bridge closure has failed to uncover a link to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, despite the liberal media’s best efforts to create one:
The U.S. Justice Department investigation into Gov. Chris Christie’s role in the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal has thus far uncovered no evidence indicating that he either knew in advance or directed the closure of traffic lanes on the span, federal officials tell NBC 4 New York.
The news is blow to hopes and dreams of MSNBC hosts, who have covered the scandal obsessively for the better part of a year. In fact, many liberals were convinced that Christie was directly involved in the scandal, and had essentially destroyed his political career. A look back:
Dressed in baggie chinos, a golf shirt and penny loafers, Gov. Chris Christie (R., N.J.) struck the image of just your average dad as he jiggled his still-formidable girth next to Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night’s “Tonight Show.”
In a take-off of last year’s viral video hit “The Evolution of Mom Dancing” featuring First Lady Michelle Obama, Christie played along with Fallon as the duo honored Father’s Day with “The Evolution of Dad Dancing.”
My must read of the day is “Chris Christie and Jimmy Fallon Perform ‘The Evolution of Dad Dancing’” in New York Magazine.
Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) has less of a chance of beating a Democrat for president in 2016 than New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, the Courier Journal reports.
An intellectually stimulating and potentially historic event was held at the American Enterprise Institute on Thursday. House majority leader Eric Cantor, Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell, and Senators Mike Lee and Tim Scott appeared alongside conservative thinkers and journalists such as Arthur Brooks, Ross Douthat, Reihan Salam, Ramesh Ponnuru, Peter Wehner, Yuval Levin, and Kate O’Beirne to discuss “solutions for the middle class.” The AEI panel was noteworthy not only for its content but also for the presence of Republican elected officials. It was the debut, however modest, of “reform conservatism” as a political force.
