Boehner-Christie Feud Flare Up: Speaker Says BridgeGate 'Not Going Away'
 
by Frances Martel 24 Jan 2014, 12:39 PM PDT

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie may have the support of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and the Republican establishment, but House Speaker John Boehner isn't hitching his wagon to Christie, telling Jay Leno last night that he doesn't see BridgeGate "going away anytime soon."

Boehner, making his debut on The Tonight Show, took some time to address the various scandals surrounding the governor. "This is not going to go away anytime soon," he told Leno, not elaborating on which of the scandals he specifically meant. Leno asked Boehner whether what Christie was being accused of could be interpreted as politics as usual, referring to examples of Lyndon Johnson browbeating some union underlings during his tenure. Speaker Boehner did not accept this as an excuse, quipping, "that might happen in New Jersey; it doesn't happen in Ohio."

Boehner must have been swigging em down in the greenroom before his appearance.  Listen to the video - slurring his words, face flushed, eyes watery.......  running his mouth

Boehner is really in full circular firing squad mode.  Just what does he think the point is of making snide, unnecessary swipes at others in the GOP?  Why wasn't he using the opportunity to push back on the other side rather than roughing up his own side?  It's Jay Leno for crying out loud; that definitely isn't a forum conducive to objective and critical political analysis.

Why are you so sure RINO Boehner made a swipe at RINO Christie?  Federal subpoenas would indicate Bridgegate ain't going away anytime soon.  That is just a fact.  The comment "that might happen in New Jersey; it doesn't happen in Ohio" - might just be a poor choice of words after his 3rd cocktail.  He definitely was under the influence of something.  Having enjoyed an adult beverage on occasion myself, I didn't get worked up about his slurred speech. Having watched the whole interview I thought Boehner did a decent job, answering tough questions.

Breitbart.com has been pushing GOP rift stories since Breitbart died.  There is nothing of substance here.

It's nice of you to come to Governor Christie's defense.
