Ft. Lee Mayor: This won't be good for Christie

In an interview with Wolf Blitzer, Mayor Mark Sokolich of Fort Lee, New Jersey – the town at the heart of Chris Christie's bridge scandal – says the George Washington bridge controversy is bad news for Gov. Christie, especially any 2016 ambitions he has.

    There have been incidents exposed in the internet. Perhaps this is merely Washington D.C. vetting him to see how he handles pressure. It's kind of weird for there to be so much noise over what is a Port Authority problem and a Federal problem. New York City is a huge place. THAT bridge is a sort of bottle-neck New England-to-all points west and south. The New Jersey Turnpike ought to request "destination" of every traveller so that the toll-booth attendant can touch a touch screen and hand-back to 'that' traveller a printout of recommended routes. The same thing ought to be done with a 'restored chain' of toll plazas on Connecticut's I-95. THAT I-95 was perfect for traffic-flow control - absolutely necessary for such a vital route that is so heavily travelled. There ought to be arrangements at State lines of Delaware, Pennsylvania and Connecticut (eastern & northern) advising recommendations, also, according to Port Authority current status criteria. Tapanzee Bridge is in need of upgrade to vent this congestion. New York City is plain getting big. George Washington Bridge is 'already double-decked'. But to blame Christie is not fair. Perhaps he's being vetted by the GOP.
