    With both gun control and TSA in political news on a regular basis, I find it a little mystifying that the Ticker won't cover the tragic deaths at LAX today.

    But, fine, Christie–at least it's not more anti-ACA spam, like all the other pieces today ...

    High travel expenses. Reminds me of that new helicopter Christie bought for himself as the new governer of NJ. It looks to the same type of helicopter used by the POTUS, Marine One. Christie was accused of using it for personal trips, like to his kid's soccer games.

    "The highly anticipated book about the presidential election by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, is expected to be a juicy tell-all about the inner-workings of the presidential campaign."

    Not my cup of tea. Sorry, Mr. Halperin and Mr. Heilemann. There is way too much gossip in journalism as it is. I am not interested in adding further to the gossip rags.

  5. just asking

    who believes anything reported in the this rag anymore? it is nothing more than a leftist run newspaper than attacks everybody that isn't a leftist. hopefully they will go out of business soon.

    Ethics questions certainly didn't stop Mittens from putting Ayn Ryan on the ticket. After completing the vetting process, the American people elected President Obama.

    Christie may very well be the next president of the US of A. He`s the only logical choice the GOP has. IMO he is the only one with a shot of beating Hil-dogg Clinton.

  9. ThinkAgain: The GOP owes our nation $24 billion

    Unrelated, but I've found that when you post on the CNN blogs, the nuts really come out of the woodwork ...

    In regard to the attack today at LAX, I have a quick question for all you Benghazi teatrolls: Will you accuse the authorities of a cover up when the information they are providing inevitably changes as more facts are learner? Or will you make the reasonable accommodation that when an unexpected, violent attack occurs, there is initial confusion and inaccurate information being reported?

    Just wondering ...

  10. ThinkAgain: The GOP owes our nation $24 billion

    I honestly don't think Christie would survive the stress and grind of a lengthy, national campaign. He's just too unfit. Had the bariatric bypass surgery and doesn't seem to have lost much weight ...

    @just asking: "who believes anything reported in the this rag anymore? it is nothing more than a leftist run newspaper than attacks everybody that isn't a leftist. hopefully they will go out of business soon."

    Then how do you explain all the recent articles about the problematic Obamacare website rollout?

    You really don't know how to think, do you?

    I bet Gov. Christie is glad he was not picked because he would be a loser too. Romney talking about ethics give me a break.

    Seems to me. Republican has become synonymous with Bully. At least the ones in congress. How can we teach our children not to bully when this is the example of how to get what you want?!

    The potential ethics problems are one concern. I think IF Governor Christie decides to run for President he will lose SOUNDLY! Why? His disposition toward persons bold enough to ask him tough questions is a combination of rude and condescending. America doesn't have a problem with that when it is a 10 second sound bite every two or three months. But once you run for President...WELCOME to the BIG LEAGUES. Most Americans will find it annoying and bratty.
