from: Ann Coulter:
New Jersey governor Chris Christie deserves to be defended. The gravamen of the media’s case against Christie on Bridgegate seems to be that he is a “bully” — which I painstakingly gleaned from the fact that the governor is called a “bully” 1 million times a night on MSNBC and in hundreds of blog postings and New York Times reports.
Christie is not a bully. If anything, he’s a pansy, a man terrified of the liberal media, of Wall Street, of Silicon Valley, of Obama, of Bruce Springsteen, of Mark Zuckerberg, of Chuck Schumer. It’s a good bet he’s afraid of his own shadow. (In fairness, his shadow is probably pretty big and scary.) About the only thing Christie doesn’t seem afraid of is the buffet at Sizzler.
Even Christie’s defenders call him a bully, but in an admiring way. Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly recently said of the governor: “One reason Mitt Romney lost to President Obama was that Governor Romney is too much of a gentleman. He apparently did not have the ‘fire in the belly’ to deliver a knockout blow. But Christie does and is therefore a threat to the Democratic Party.” read more
