Christie's Enemies Ready to Pounce

First Read: "Christie faces a serious problem that goes well beyond whether anyone contradicts the story and timeline he laid out on Thursday: He has enemies, both Democratic and Republican ones, who are sharpening their knives. On the Democratic side, state lawmakers are holding hearings and investigations on the issue (example: Christie aide David Wildstein pleading the 5th yesterday), and that won't stop anytime soon. Just as Darrell Issa and House Republicans hounded the Obama administration last year with subpoenas, leaks, and numerous hearings, New Jersey Democrats have the ability to make life miserable for Christie in 2014. But it's not only Democrats. Some Republicans -- potential 2016 rivals, conservatives upset by his embrace of President Obama in 2012, or any other enemies he's made along the way - have the ability to score points with this scandal."
