Christie says bridge scandal won’t affect presidential decision

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Friday that the bridgegate scandal won’t affect his decision on whether to run for the GOP’s presidential nomination in 2016, saying that’s “simply not the way I would make a decision.”

He said his polls will go up and down and that he will make decisions about his political future later, not based on his standing at this point.

“Not the ones now — they don’t mean anything,” he said at an afternoon press conference, called a day after his office released an extensive internal report that cleared him of having knowledge of the toll lane closings that snarled traffic near the George Washington Bridge.

The report found two top aides to Mr. Christie conspired to close the lanes down as political punishment to the Democratic mayor of Fort Lee, N.J., and found other aides knew about the lane closures but didn’t know they were intended as political statements.

Mr. Christie said the report leaves him in the clear.

    He seems to be a political chameleon, he changes his ideas depending on who he wants to impress.

    If he is assuming such, he might look at a definition of ASS + U = ME, and assume some more. I don’t think his kiss up to Obama did him much good, in my simple minded Patriotic NonMuslim Chrisitan American decisions.

    He is right it will not matter because no one wants him as a candidate anyway. He is all talk and no action. He twists himself into the ground he turns to one side and then the other so often.
