A tale of two scandals

Political pundits have put Chris Christie and Hillary Clinton as the front runners for the next president. Let’s compare how the two have handled themselves in the face of recent scandals.

Gov. Christie’s scandal caused a traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge.

Secretary Clinton’s scandal was a terrorist attack that murdered four Americans on foreign soil.

Gov. Christie held a two-hour press conference the next day to answer reporters’ questions.

Secretary Clinton did not answer any questions about Benghazi for more than ten weeks.

Gov. Christie went to Fort Lee the next day to personally apologize to the Democratic mayor.

Secretary Clinton sent a message to the Muslim world to apologize for an offensive video.

Gov. Christie accepted personal responsibility and took swift action to resolve it.

Secretary Clinton sent out Susan Rice to tell reporters the story about the video.

Gov. Christie immediately fired those responsible for the traffic jam.

Secretary Clinton fired no one over Benghazi. In fact, Susan Rice was actually promoted.

Gov. Christie’s most memorable line from the traffic jam:

“One thing is clear: This type of behavior is unacceptable and I will not tolerate it because the people of New Jersey deserve better.

“This behavior is not representative of me or my administration in any way, and people will be held responsible for their actions.”

Secretary Clinton’s most memorable line from the terrorist attack on Benghazi:

“Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk last night who decided to kill some Americans?

What difference at this point does it make?”

Based on these early tests, which one do you think would make a better president?
