S.E. Cupp: If Christie was directly involved in Bridgegate, he should resign

posted at 7:32 pm on January 8, 2014 by Allahpundit

Via the Daily Caller, are we at this point so soon? The story about his deputy’s e-mails broke this morning; he put out the requisite shock-and-disappointment statement a few hours ago; and now here’s a righty pundit already dropping the R-bomb on him, albeit conditionally. Half the Republicans I follow on Twitter are rolling their eyes that anyone in the media could be so exercised about petty hardball played by local politicians, especially when Bob Gates is busy accusing the president of the United States of sending men to die in a war he never believed in. Christie’s not in any imminent danger.

But look — at this point, given his emphatic denials that he had anything to do with the lane closings, what’s the alternative to resigning if a smoking gun emerges proving that he did? He’s not going to stand at the podium, cop to having lied baldfaced to the world about his role in punishing the public in order to retaliate against a political enemy, and then say, “Oh well, see you tomorrow.” His whole shtick is that he’s a straight talker who tells the truths that more polished politicians are too afraid to tell. He can’t admit to having lied to protect himself and then go back to business as usual. So what’s the alternative to resignation if he gets caught red-handed? Which, I guess, is another way of saying that the odds of him getting caught red-handed are verrry low or else his denials wouldn’t be so emphatic. If he was involved, the way this was done, I assume, is Christie telling a close aide to make it happen and then the aide telling Kelly to make it happen. That gives him plausible deniability. No paper trail, no muss, no fuss. At worst, if Kelly turns on him and claims that she’s confident the order came from Christie himself, he’ll dismiss it as fingerpointing by a bad employee who’s eager to rehabilitate her rep by telling the media what it wants to hear. He wouldn’t go all-in on denials if he had reason to believe he was exposed.

As for the rest of the clip, where Cupp teases out a scenario in which Christie resigns, becomes a martyr to his supporters for doing so(?), and then rebounds by running for president anyway, I don’t know what to tell you except that Tapper’s green room must include a mini-bar. Any pol who would abuse his power for such petty, egotistical reasons, lie about it repeatedly, and then actually step down in disgrace isn’t going to be considered for the most powerful job in the world. Especially when a big chunk of his own party’s base already disdains him.

That’s not true, I’ve only read a portion of what you wrote but I generally agreed with you about Christie, he is a progressive scumbag and I’m not a bit surprised by this scandal, but when you started spewing left wing propaganda about Benghazi you exposed yourself as a partisan hack.

He points out that believers are not alone in these prayers. He spoke about the partnerships of faith groups and government to expand the ways they can do more to fight poverty and hunger and build up families.

His morning prayer “when I wait on the Lord” is to ask the Lord for strength

Obama said he frequently prays…

for my ability to help those who are struggling. we are called work on behalf of a God who shows justice and mercy and compassion to the most vulnerable…

Obama told Coburn that one day God would lead him to vote Obama’s way now and then:

Tom, It’s gonna happen. A ray of life is going to beam down”

If lane closures are enough to bring on a RICO case they should have plenty of company-start with Bloomberg and Andy Cuomo with their insane “Complete Streets” policy where travel lanes are permanently eliminated in order to build bike lanes or implement “context-sensitive solutions”.

At least whoever did this in Jersey only shut down the lanes for a couple of hours-three-quarters of the Democratic Party want to do it permanently on all kinds of facilities-because, you know, “losing the capacity to carry 20,000 vehicles per day is worth it if we can get 3 more people to ride a bike to work.”

When we have a ‘president’ who disdains our troups, sics the IRS on his political foes (who he calls ‘enemies’), instructs the NSA to snoop on all Americans, champions deadbeats and disrespects entrepreneurs, nominates candidates whose sole purpose is to destroy the USA, ignores pleas from an AMBASSADOR for more security and parties while Americans are being murdered, why on earth should we be concerned about a temporary traffic jam?

You mean resign along with H Clinton for BenGate deaths

Sorry, but I really don’t want to hear from an atheistic lesbian (S.E.Cupp) masquerading as a “conservative pundit”.

David2.0 on January 8, 2014 at 10:17 PM

Ahhhh! So – you’ve had sex with her, then?…..

Heh, Wildstein will plead the 5th this afternoon, on all questions.

Schadenfreude on January 9, 2014 at 1:19 PM

But you guys, as republicans, can’t claim to be the party of integrity, the party of self-responsibility, and then be like “Well democrats wouldn’t resign so neither should he.” That’s hypocrisy, and you know it.

So should he resign or not? And if he should I suspect you have rallied for Obama’s resignation.

Snicker.

CWchangedhisNicagain on January 9, 2014 at 1:21 PM

If Obama and Hillary hasn’t resigned yet, why should Christie. What he did is like stealing a cookie from the jar compared to the criminals in the White House.

When’s the last time a Democrat resigned for anything?

Rat, find your latrine. You stink through the net.

I think we should enact “The Code Of Hammurabi”……

“An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth….”

So that ALL occaisions of “reaching in the cookie jar”, be it to take a single cookie or to Grab The Whole Jar – results in the decapitation of THE HAND of the absconder in every circumstance…….

williamg on January 9, 2014 at 6:25 PM

Oh please,

ONLY because Christie has an (R)ino by his political affiliation.

ALL the stuff that’s come out about Obama et al and yet they haven’t resigned.

But then, Liberals are consistent in their bias.

ProfShadow on January 9, 2014 at 7:28 PM

She’s pretty.

CycloneCDB on January 10, 2014 at 12:36 PM

Is that S.E.Cupp,or a tranny imposter in that pic?

falsecast on January 10, 2014 at 1:35 PM

Allahpundit’s trying to see how far he can troll us, posting another entry about Christie…and inserting a damn autoplay.

22044 on January 8, 2014 at 8:22 PM

A-yup. It autoplayed an ad that stated only “224 seconds till you can watch your selected content!”

I paused it. And then.. An ad started to play over top of the paused ad!

ADCEPTION.

Can’t be having those pesky non-theists and gays in ‘our’ republican party, eh?

Good lawd.

Reaps on January 11, 2014 at 12:29 PM

Since when have we been required to accept the opinions as in any way meaningful or even thoughtful from young adults like S.E. Cupp, Ezra Klein, Toure and the like.

AP, thanks for a little perspective on this.

guido911 on January 8, 2014 at 11:56 PM

I don’t think anyone is making you accept anyone’s opinion. So, not sure what you’re getting at here.

Reaps on January 11, 2014 at 12:32 PM

I’m sure since I’m so late to the discussion, this has been covered, but…

I want to do *nasty* things to S.E. Cupp.

On air or Off… nasty.

Have you got any photographic and/or video evidence of that.
