Christie Considering White House Bid? NJ Governor Says Yes

Garden State leader dismisses Bridgegate scandal, says he has eye on 2016.

Even before he was re-elected as New Jersey's governor in November of 2013, rumors began swirling about Chris Christie's potential run for the White House in 2016.

The second-term governor, addressing a conference in Washington Wednesday and speaking with CBS News' Bob Schieffer, made a statement more telling than most recently when asked about his considerations for a White House bid.

After telling Schieffer he felt the months-long Bridgegate scandal would be merely a "footnote" by the time 2016 rolled around, the news anchor asked him point blank about his political future.

"Are you still thinking about running for president, and when will you make a decision on that?" Schieffer asked.

"Yes and later," Christie quickly shot back. 

In the video above, Christie explains what impact the scandal will have on his political future.

"As far as the impact this will have on my political future, I think [Bridgegate] will have none," Christie said. "Cuz I didn't do anything."

The governor went on to say the scandal will be just a footnote two years from now. Do you agree? Disagree? Vote in our poll here

Hillary has concussion? She and all the "Progressives" have been brain dead for years! By the time the 2016 elections happen, twenty million illegals will be given the vote and another two or three million dead will vote in Detroit and Florida. Slam dunk for the Soros and Hollywood ilk. Christie didn't know about a traffic jam on some NJ to NY bridge? What else is new about a traffic jam there? Loretta Windbag and John Whishniewski are two small potato politicians that have long ago passed their 15 minutes of fame. Note to those two public union lackeys, lower my property taxes, stupid!!!

Didn't the 'Fat One', (with apologies to Jackie Gleason) tell us he was elected governor and would serve 4 years?
