POLL: Does GWB Traffic Scandal Change Your Image of Christie?

Please vote in our poll: Popular governor and potential presidential hopeful at center of brewing controversy.

Emails revealed Wednesday show one of Gov. Chris Christie's staff members allegedly conspired to purposely close traffic lanes in Fort Lee in September, causing major delays and safety issues in the town closest to the George Washington Bridge. 

The scandal has been snowballing since before the November election, and the attention coming from Wednesday's news has put a spotlight on the nationally-known governor. 

Some have said this could mar his walk to the White House in 2016—if he chooses to run, that is.

But what do you think of the "Bridgegate" scandal? Christie's direct involvement has not been concluded, and the governor has previously denied any participation. 

Tell us: Please vote in our poll or write in the comments below. Does the growing fracas change your thoughts on the governor? Do you think this will hamper a bid for the presidency in 2016 if he chooses to run?

No, I always thought he was scum

You were right, after all. Too bad the Sept. "Bridge-gate" fiasco wasn't revealed until after the November election. The clown wanted to be leader of the free world, and he pulls a grammar-school trick like that!

" you can keep your doctor and your ins if you like it" Obama lies like a whore in a cat house...you dems bend over and Say harder.! Lies are aces in the Dem play book

If Moonpool uses Obama's "lie" to justify Christi's actions, then by an extension of that logic, Obama was justified in lying because Bush lied about WMD. And so on and so forth back to Washington. However, Obama's "lie" was part of an effort to save lives. Christie's little stunt put lives at risk and Bush got many Americans unnecessarily killed. More than 9/11.

Andy take the rose colored glasses off. Back then the Clintons, Kerry, everyone thought there were WMD's. OMG, Obama was justified in lying in an effort to save lies ? Christi named names and took action against those that took part in this. We're still waiting for Obama to take action on numerous scandals, that he didn't know about until he read about them in the paper...and you probably will try and defend that. If Christi was lying, it'll come out, if not he told the truth.
