Christie says he can beat Clinton

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 08:47 p.m. HST, Jun 12, 2014

JERSEY CITY, N.J. » Gov. Chris Christie appears confident in his presidential prospects despite the ongoing bridge scandal that has tarnished his national reputation.

During an appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" that aired late Thursday night, Christie was asked whether, "hypothetically," he thinks he could beat Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton in a one-on-one matchup.

"Hypothetically? You bet," responded the Republican governor.

Christie was considered a top 2016 contender before news broke that members of his administration redirected traffic on the George Washington Bridge in an apparent act of political retribution.

On the show, Christie poked fun at the scandal and participated in a recurring segment called "the evolution of dad dancing" that featured him busting various moves.

Christie later joked his dancing was more humiliating to his family than the scandal.

The Republicans have no one, and nothing, to offer in the next Presidential election. Their candidates are jokes, just google their comments.

Two points. First, if Jesus or Buddha came before us in this day and age, we all-knowing commentators would still insist on crucifying them. Yup, us perfect people. Too bad we don't more time in researching both sides of the question in an unbiased manner before we expound -- but then it's all about ego and hate. Go look in the mirror and cast the first stone.

So what about research and truth? Take Abercrombie, if you go through all that he's done, you find that he has done nothing but added to the CO2 level for the earth - a major source of air pollution. Nothing but hot, stinking air. Nope, no friend at all, except to himself, developers, and contractors. The man is preparing for his retirement, so retire him. No more gullible votes for the man who is feeding himself with a $300,000 per year household allowance and built a $50,000 doggy runway for his pet at taxpayer expense.
