RON HART: Christie's fat and furious braking bad

Published: Thursday, January 16, 2014 at 05:13 PM.

The media has given more attention to this peashooter traffic glitch than they did to Benghazi, for an obvious reason: Chris Christie is the only Republican polling ahead of Hillary Clinton. The left will stop at nothing to ensure that Bill and Hillary Clinton are the first two-impeachment family.

Does “Bridge-gate” doom Christie? Republican presidential primaries are tough; they decide who will be the party’s nominee and who will end up selling reverse mortgages on TV.

I was not a huge fan of Christie before. He went after Rand Paul. He does not have the personal discipline to lose weight. How can he tell the country we need to tighten our belts when he can’t tighten his? I’m afraid Christie is more interested in White Castle than the White House.

And he probably has other skeletons in his closet. They may be just chicken wing bones, but they are there. If squeaky-clean Mitt Romney proved anything, it was that the Democrat machine will savage any opponent. So maybe it is best to just lay everything out there and let it become just water under the bridge — or a bridge too far. 

We shall see.
