Christie Says Bridge Controversy is Overblown

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) spent an hour saying the controversy over closing lanes on the George Washington bridge last fall was "no big deal," the New York Times reports.

However, the official responsible for the action resigned on Friday.

"Even if the lane closings were not retribution, even if Mr. Christie did not know about them, the accusation of nasty politics goes to the heart of one of the governor's vulnerabilities as he prepares to run for president. In how many other states, after all, do pollsters routinely ask voters whether they agree that their governor is a bully?"
