    Of course they are. Anything to discredit one of the potential GOP candidates for the 2016 election.

    It is so difficult to imagine that Christie's buddy Barack Hussein double-crossed him after the lousy keynote speech that Christie delivered at the GOP convention and after Christie posed for so many photo-ops with Barry when no one else wanted Barry around. Sotero just seems fickle by tipping off CNN, doesn't he?

    Yep, same thing they are doing with Hillary. Like I said, Drudge said the GOP was gonna try and attach Benghazi to her 2016 run. And all this stuff about her and Bill is starting to pop up again on Drudge.

    Folks haven't even said they are gonna run but the attempts to destroy have already started.

    reminds me of your endless Romney-bashing a couple years ago.

    But we all know it's OK when you do it.

    Gosh. I didn't bash Romney. All I said was that the man was 100% against Jesus Christ and that you wonderful, hypocritic folks who say you love Jesus are against any candidate who are for abortion and gay "marriage" but can seemingly find room to give your "approval" to a man who is 100% against Jesus Christ. Let's the world know what's important to Christians.

    SO? The Obama Administration approves of gay marriage too. That doesn't mean that Governors of states should push gay marriage. :laugh: The money was given to the State of New Jersey. How it was used comes back to the doorstep of the CEO of New Jersey, Gov. Christie.

    It ain't no big deal, but he should at least accept responsibility and keep it moving.

    I guess you missed my point.

    Team Zero approved the ad campaign. So it's silly for this DEMOCRAT to open up an investigation, and this could only be pure politics.

    I voted for Gary Johnson, so your admonition must be for someone else. And you constantly bashed Romney, based only on his personal choice of religion.

    You missed my point. Team Zero had no say so over the campaign. They could have disagreed and it wouldn't have mattered. After the money is allocated, the state decides what to do with it.

    So then why are the feds investigating it ? If what you say is true it makes even less sense.

    Here is why it's a big deal. (And this could have been learned if people would ACUALLY READ THE STORY)

    OK, New Jersey got $25M to promote tourism. Sounds good.

    Huh, so New Jersey decided to spend almost twice as much money on one commercial that featured Chris Christie and his family than on one commercial that didn't feature him. Now do you see the problem? He spent 19% of their federal monies on one ad that has him as the star! Is that a good expenditure of money?

    Take a look at the commercial here:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGj6ImLHyp0

    If it's fair game to criticize the ObamaCare website design for being an overpriced lemon (and it surely is) than it's fair to criticize this commercial for costing $4.7 million.
