Please, media. Whatever you do, don't point out that Obama hasn't fired ONE person related to any scandals in his admin.

At his press conference this morning, Gov. Christie announced that he has fired deputy chief of staff Bridget Anne Kelly for her role in the http://twitchy.com/2014/01/08/more-trouble-than-hes-worth-chris-christie-postpones-appearance-in-the-wake-of-bridgegate-scandal/, effective immediately:
Christie calls his staffer "stupid" and "deceitful"

Dep. CoS was "terminated". Not given the chance to resign. Again, smart.

Christie has also asked consultant Bill Stepien to withdraw his name from nomination for state party chairman, and he said that Stepien will not even be considered.
Christie campaign manager Bill Stepien won't be state party chair or work with RGA http://t.co/2VITDMfrbn

Christie went on to say this: “If I cannot trust someone’s judgment, I cannot ask others to do so.” And tweeters can’t help but notice that they haven’t heard anything like that from President Obama. High-level officials who presided over corruption and scandal are still gainfully employed.
Firings after Chris Christie scandal: 1 – Firings after Barack Obama scandals: 0 – This is how an accountable leader speaks and acts

Christie's Stepien firing would be like Obama canning Plouffe.

Plouffe is still around, as are these two:
Remember that Eric Holder still has his job. So does Kathleen Sebelius.

Hope President Obama’s taking notes:
Heads have rolled for lies in the Christie Administration. Your turn, President Obama.

The MSM could learn from this as well:
To confused journalists, what https://twitter.com/GovChristie is doing right now is called "leadership." Google it, then look at the White House & feel shame.
