CAPITAL NEW YORK, which is now owned by POLITICO, is into the story. So you know it has legs. POLITICO intends to have CNY become a force to reckon with in the NY Metro market, just as it did Inside the Beltway. Here you can read the coverage by CNY of the supposed study which backed up the traffic from a small New Jersey town to the George Washington Bridge.
The buzz is that move was retaliation for not supporting Chris Christie. So far Christie political allies Bill Baroni and David Wildstein have resigned their jobs connected to the Port of Authority which overees the bridge, on both the NY and NJ sides. A third David Samson is no where to be found. Ambitious Chris Cuomo ain't letting this go.
Christie will be wounded by what is being suspected. The questions are - How much - and - Can he bounce back. The gimmick of backing up traffic on that critical route smacks of spiteful anger, pettiness and no imagination. In 2016, we want a president who isn't a hothead, petty and who can think creatively about the problems of the U.S. and the world.
Hillary Clinton supporters, very busy with their online fundraising, are probably putting their heads together about the message of how presidential she will be. And she is certainly a woman with full control of her emotions. The GOP might have lost their best shot for 2016.
