14th, 2013, the george washington bridge connecting new york to new jersey had three lanes closed without warning, causing major delays in fort lee. democrats cried vendetta, but there was no evidence to back up that charge. and christie scoffed at the notion of traffic as political retribution. >> i actually was the guy working the cones out there. you really are not serious with that question. >> reporter: instead, new jersey officials claimed it had been a traffic study commissioned by the port authority. >> why do you think they did it? >> i'm not aware of any traffic study. i don't know why it was done. >> reporter: but that story unraveled when port authority officials were subpoenaed by the state assembly last month. >> and it directly violated our agency's primary responsibility to protect our customers and personnel. >> reporter: cnn today obtained texts and e-mails that seemed to suggest the logjam may have, indeed, been caused by political retribution. nearly a month before the bridge lane closures, christie's deputy chief of staff, bridget ann kelly, exmailed david wil

surprise to many, as you've heard, is that chief justice john roberts, a george w. bush appointee, broke with the conservatives, sided with the court's liberal justice in favor of obama care and the individual mandate. in a way it was curiously refreshing whether you agree with the court's decision or not. that's because a lot of people have come to believe that politics has played an outsized role in the supreme court's decision in recent years. probably really got going back in 2000 with bush versus gore, when the supreme court effectively handed the presidency to george w. bush. then two years ago came the citizens united ruling allowing unlimited spending by corporations and unions on elections as long as it's independent of the campaigns. whatever the reasons, there has been a marked decline in the supreme court's approval rating with the american public. a recent poll found only 44% of americans approve of how the high court does its job. that's down from 80% in 1994. the "new york times" cbs poll shows an overwhelming 76% of those surveyed say the supreme court justices som

. remember the hanging chads in 2000? the supreme court wound up deciding the election in george bush's favor because florida was mired in an antiquated system that kept the vote count there in question for weeks. and then there's ohio. remember the voting machine fiasco in 2004? you could make the argument that until they learn how to do it, florida and ohio should not be allowed to vote in anymore presidential elections. but the fact is florida, ohio and pennsylvania hold the keys to the white house. and that's a fact, jack. right now things look pretty good for president obama in those three states. here's the question, should the same three states, florida, ohio and pennsylvania, be able to determine the outcome of virtually every presidential election? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile, post a comment on my blog. or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. candy. >> thanks, jack. we will see you with the answer shortly. >>> whichever way tomorrow's expected supreme court ruling on health care reform goes, it will put mitt romney in an awkward position. not only is the

years of george bush's presidency the american people were better off than they were at the end of bill clinton's, because by any economic yardstick, the truthful answer is no, they weren't, and he sort of stumbled over it and didn't really give a firm answer, but certainly didn't deny you could paint that picture. when it came to the claim about unemployment, back to carter, what he didn't say, unemployment when george bush left the presidency was the same as it had been under carter, 7.8. not much difference there. i think the election will come down to who you believe most. do you think barack obama improved albeit in a small way the fortune of the american people or do you think paul ryan and mitt romney can successfully argue in four years they should have done better than this? >> you make a good point. you said he stumbled when you said george w. bush inherited a good economy when he took office, budget surplus as far as the eye could see, unfortunately things went down as far as national debt, doubled from 5 to 10 trillion. he had a good answer why president obama inherited
