Re "Christie apologizes, ousts aides in gridlock scheme (Page A1, Jan. 10): Folks, the 2016 election is more than a thousand days away, and once you leave Manhattan, the brouhaha about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is a tempest in a teapot. The article says that voters dont like political bullies and that Christie has developed that reputation. Really, or is bullying just the medias whipping boy these days? The medias efforts to make a political storm out of Christies embarrassment is silly. Whether Christie gets nominated or not, the bridge fiasco will be a dim memory by the summer and fall of 2016, especially if the governor can stick to his well-advised approach of talking the media into catatonia.
