Chris Christie was large and in charge until he wasn’t

Today we are witnessing a rare occurance. The sighting of an humble Chris Christie. He is offering an apology to the people of Fort Lee New Jersey specifically and to the entire state generally. As Sargent Schultz of the televsion show “Hogan’s heroes” used to say “I Know Nothing”. He says he did not have a clue that anything was going on with the traffic or the bridge, but now he knows better. His staff sanctioned the closing of the lanes on the GWB and that action negatively impacted thousands, but Christie who has always been strong and powerful now talks about how much authority he delegates to his staff. This story is evolving. It went from Christie scoffing at this story 3 weeks ago, to apologizing today who knows what tomorrow will bring?

    A Chief Executive who looks at the facts, finds out that his staff was involved with something wrong, and not only apologizes for it but also holds people accountable and fires people on his staff. Wow! That’s refreshing. Imagine if a certain Chief Executive took a similar tack on something like the rollout of Obamacare, on Lybia, Fast & Furious.

    NAW! Never happen. Better to apologize that people are going through a difficult time than to say you made a tragic mistake….

    Where else have I heard the “I know nothing” plea in recent times? At least he isn’t calling it a phony scandal and giving it serious enough attention to take corrective action. Thankfully Christie is a Republican or otherwise we might never have heard this story in the mainstream media.
