How about "Christie displayed really crappy judgment by employing subordinates, that would do such things."

Christie was also a negligent manager, to not know what his subordinates were up to.

My father taught me long ago, regarding business, you are not only responsible for what you know, but for what you should know.

A management professor taught me you can delegate authority, but you cannot delegate responsibility.

Of course none of these principles mean anything to political operatives, these days; not until they are caught.

He went out of his way today to lambaste his assistant who is taking the blame for this..... and to deny any knowledge on his part.  This is the same sort of blame the other guy and the buck doesn't stop with me behavior we see from Obama.

Roger Stone's Three Corollaries:
1. Admit nothing.
2. Deny everything.
3. Launch counterattack.

Christie is a shrewd politician. He didn't get to the point where he did by playing nice. As many problems as I have with the guy, the swagger he has consistently shown in dealing with the political and media types has been refreshing.

Again, I strongly recommend that everyone check out George Will's excellent explanation of the first three rules of Damage Control on Special Report today.  Very interesting and spot on.

Here is the link to Bret Baier and the Roundtable with Will's comments.
http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/special-report-bret-baier/index.html

Will said there comes a time when you say goodbye to people. He also said today gave Christie a chance to look presidential, and he did, along with how to handle a crisis. Will also said Christie got a taste of the scrutiny he would be under, should he run for president.

I agree with all that, providing Christie is telling the truth, and not throwing people under the bus for his own goals. Anyone with half a brain can look presidential, but how long will it last? (Obama doesn't have half a brain). I can't imagine his not being aware of all that went on right under his nose. Why did he think the lanes were cut off? Did he even ask?

If Christie was a Democrat, this would be hailed as an executive decision by the media.  Since this is a GOP governor, it will dog him for years.  Brian Williams was basically breathless tonight as he led the NBC newscast with this story.

Looks like he learned from Obama well.
November 6, 2012, a day in infamy...the death of a republic as we know it.
