    In the day we sweat it out on the streets, stuck in traffic on the GWB

    They shut down the tollbooths of glory 'cause we didn't endorse Christie.

    Sprung from cages on Highway 9, we got three lanes closed, so Jersey get your ass in line

    Whoa, maybe this Bridgegate was just payback, it's a bitchslap to the state democrats,

    We gotta get out but we can't. We're stuck in Gov. Chris Christie's Fort Lee, N.J. traffic jam.

    Governor, let me in, I wanna be your friend, there'll be no partisan divisions

    Let me wrap my legs 'round your mighty rims and relieve your stressful condition

    You've got Wall Street masters stuck cheek-to-cheek with blue collar truckers, and man, I really gotta take a leak

    But I can't. I'm stuck in Gov. Chris Christie's Fort Lee, N.J. traffic jam

    Highways jammed with pissed off drivers with no place left to go

    And the press conference went on and on, it was longer than one of my own damn shows

    Someday, governor, I don't know when, this will all end, but till then you're killing the working man

    who's stuck in the Gov. Chris Christie Fort Lee, N.J. traffic jam

    Whoa, oh oh oh

    I gotta take a leak

    Whoa, oh oh oh

    I really gotta take a leak

    Whoa, oh oh oh

    Down in Jerseyland

    As I wrote in another thread about this, if one of New Jersey's favorite sons is singing lyrics like this about Christie, his corrupt political days are numbered.

    Thanks but that was copy&paste at its finest. I'll look for the NJ paper where I found it to give them credit.

    Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Fallon lyrics to 'Gov. Christie Traffic Jam' parody

    "Gov. Chris Christie's favorite rock star is singing about him. But not for reasons the governor would like."

    When the Boss makes a joke out of you, you're probably really headed towards the crapper. The Boss is definitely New Jersey's favorite son.

    dunno about that. bruce springsteen isn't really big in new jersey as people would like to believe. nobody gives a fuck about him to be honest. him and the bon jovi guy. folks may know of them but they aren't playing his music or saying his name as if they care. jersey is basically a state with no identity so any so called jersey pride is nonexistent. north jersey is an extension of nyc/new york and south jersey is an extension of philadelphia/pennsylvania. there's really nobody screaming how proud they are being from jersey and can't blame them either. folks are rather embarrassed to tell you the truth.

    And where are you proud being from, TODAY? icon_wink.gif

    this is mildly funny, and i'm always impressed with the stupid things Jimmy Fallon gets celebrities to do on his show.

    but i don't understand why people are so upset with Christie?

    it's Jersey, that's standard operating procedure isn't it? closing the bridge was a nice piece of old school retribution. kinda reassuring.

    he could have put the mayor's brother in the trunk of a car at the airport. big deal, whad ya gonna do about it? this is JERSEY u punk-ass.

    He could very easily be poison to the GOP hopes of the White House now.


    Yeah I never bought that he was in serious contention for the presidental race anyway. US voters don't want a fat president.

    Only Gay men won't vote for a fat president. lol

    People thought this country wasn't ready for a black president before 08. Christie is indeed a GOP forerunner.

    1. He's the most sane, visible GOP politician right now. And in order to be a viable candidate they'll need at least 2 years in the lime light before elections. And he has that.

    2. He positioned himself as a moderate republican early by working with Obama on the Hurricane Sandy relief, showing that when it truly matters he's open and willing to be bipartisan (unlike the more radical GOP Tea Party members)

    3. He's setting himself apart from other possible GOP candidates by being critical of his party.

    Even though I don't support him, I'm pretty sure it'll be him and Hilary in 2016. And if Obamacare doesn't improve the GOP will use that as leverage against the democrats and Christie WILL WIN the White House.

    oh don't lump me in with that crowd, I luv Christie I like his bully style, I havne't looked super deep into his political voting record but at least he doesn't seem to be as full of shit as most politicians. I think you're right about all of his positives for the Republicans, they need somebody who won't be hog-tied by the crazy hyper right.

    But I also think the RNC will chicken out and get Rand Paul or Marco Rubio thinking that hispanics are the magic key to the castle. OR maybe even Jeb jumps in at the last minuite if polls aren't looking good for the party.

    I'm not 100% convinced that Hillary is in it to win it yet. the Clinton's are still calculating and will be for at least another year. I think Obama is going to finish up the second term pretty lukewarm, but he does seem to bring alot of game in the final minutes.

    i dunno but it certainly ain't here. you'll never catch me saying that i'm a native new jerseyan or proud of being from jersey. NEVER. i'll stick with what was written on the birth certificate and where i was living at BEFORE i came to this place. just like you, the moment i get a chance to move out of here, i'm taking it. no questions ask. jersey has NOTHING. i've been wanting to move out of here for the longest but the opportunity hasn't came yet. this place fucking sucks.

    i've heard some people that were in the same position that decided to move to colorado, florida, new york or other places AND they missed new jersey so much that they moved back. i can tell you that i'm NOT one of those folks. i actually get annoyed when i'm out of state and have to come back. icon_neutral.gif i have friends over here that i would come and visit but as far as staying, NOPE. 24 years is enough.



    You are right about that!!! Moved outta Jersey a year and a half ago and there's no way in HELL I am moving bac. In fact, I haven't even been back to visit yet and no plans to do so at all this year!

    there's been many corrupt politicians in new jersey and the united states. he'll do his full term, run for president AND win. only way he'll lose is if someone else in the repubs has more charisma and star power than him or if hilary banks is running.


    Christie won't be elected President. Hillary will be elected in '16.

    His real problem is that the Teabaggers & Christian fundamentalists who now control the primary election process for Republican candidates don't want someone who's not a radical conservative and a Christian fundamentalist.

    Fundamentalists compelled Romney and the other Republican Presidential contenders in the last election to sign anti-gay pledges. And Conservatives & Teabaggers exacted pledges for their own extremist causes.

    Unless Christie does likewise he hasn't got a chance in the Republican primaries. But if Bridgegate continues to blowup in his face, I doubt he'll ever get to the primaries. Lard butt is now lost butt.

    i doubt it. this country probably won't vote for a democratic president again for another 8 years.

    and if hillary becomes president, SHE BETTER BRING UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE. that and legalize marijuana.


    ^this sounds right.

    still profoundly disappointed with Barack for not pushing harder for single-payer

    Maybe Bruce could pay some property taxes instead of organically farming a few vegetables on his huge estate. Especially when he lives in a county still so devastated by Superstorm Sandy.

    A benefit concert that Bruce receives an additional tax benefit from doesn't make up for 30 years of paying miniscule property taxes on a huge estate.

    can u expand on springsteen's property taxes? Does he have some kind of exemption? or what are you referring to? From what i've read he's just using the existing system legally to pay the lowest he can.

    he pays $138,000 in taxes on his house, and the other 200ac of land that he uses for farming is zoned for that , thats' why it has a much lower tax bill. real estate taxes are based on land use, not it's potential development value. if he rezoned it for development the tax bill would increase accordingly.
