christie ends up being connected in any way to the george washington bridge scandal, "i'd be off him because he engaged in something utterly stupid, and if he's that stupid, he can't be president of the united states." other top republicans may not even be that patient with christie as the scandals wear on, whereas christie was supposedly going to be his party's establishment favorite for 2016, it's now jeb who seems to be getting an audition for that role. of course, there are other issues with jeb, too. the column titled "why jeb bush is a terrible candidate," ben smith, the editor-in-chief of buzz feed wrote this week that one of the biggest marks against him is being out of touch with the party's key constituencies on immigration. smith cited this comment, which jeb made a week ago today. >> the way i look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn't come legally, they come to our country because their family -- a dad who loved their children was worried that their children didn't have food on the table. and they wanted to make sure their family was intact. a

asimulated muslim community. if you look back to the days of george w. bush where there was a effort by republicans -- business owners integrated into their communities not radical, in france you have a class issue. these guys were not particularly relinlous to begin with but they are even second or third generation algerians. there's a lot of anger and rab id right wing reaction to muslims. it's important to know the muslim community stood up immediately. the muslim council was the first to visit the charlie hebdo offices there have been demonstrations muslim councils all over europe all denounced this. there's a notion in this country, why won't the good muslims speak up. they are speaking up and don't want to see anything like this go on. >> i don't think we have to be hypothetical about whether or not it could happen in this country, it wasn't that long ago we witnessed the boston bombings. in a similar fashion, perhaps less coordinated from the middle east but lone wolf or small fractional elements of radical muslims doing something terrible. truthfully the answer to whether or not

with liberalism, what you -- you associate george mcgovern and walter mondale, you say you wanted to move the party away from that. do you -- did you consider what you did with the dlc? do you consider yourself a liberal and where do you assess liberalism now? >> first of all, i came out of the war on poverty. i consider myself a liberal. what i think we did is really saved the liberalism. you got to remember where we were in the 1980s. democrats suffered the three worst elections in the history of any party in the history of our country. we won a lower percentage of electoral votes this three consecutive election than any party has ever won since the advent of modern parties in 1828. liberalism was about ready to go the way of the whigs. we tried to modernize it, reconnect it with the main values of the democratic party. opportunity for all. make it a party of upward mobility again. that's why we grew the economy, created 22.5 million new jobs. moved more people out of poverty than any decade but one. restoring john kennedy's civic responsibility, the idea you have to give something

panel. the editor at large. and robert george editorial writer with the "new york post." thanks for joining us. let's start with we played towards the top of the show marilyn mosby who has emerged as the star of baltimore. i'm curious what you think of her move. on the one hand i was struck overnight by the coverage, ron allen this morning talking about how much the mood changed with that announcement. not what a contrast it was when we saw in baltimore earlier in the week. what a contrast it is to how these stories play out when there's a difference. the mood changed completely. at the same time what i'm hearing was did she rush this in a way that's going to jeopardize the case. did she overreach with some of the charges here some some have raises the concern is she responding too much about what's going on in the streets in terms of her time table. i'm curious how you think about what happened yesterday. >> i think she seemed like a sober, smart person doing her job. no one has shown any evidence that feels like a rush. it feels like like a rush to us because it's not like a case

with this historic shift we have to remember it was only ten years ago that george w. bush and the national gop ran their campaign on anti-gay marriage sentiment. there are still some republicans who are willing to fight tooth and nail to stop same-sex marriage. this week, mike huckabee called for a third party. the gop gives ground on other social issues. where is the gop on same-sex marriage. where is it headed and can it keep it together as the country moves forward on gay marriage even as the muck huckabees of the world cry stop. here to discuss it with us liz and, liz, thanks for joining us this morning. really appreciate it. >> thanks for having me. >> start with, i guess, the most recent polling numbers on this. the support for same-sex marriage and you break it down by party. democrats sitting at 63%, republicans at 41%. as far as i can tell, that's a pretty, that's a higher number than we're used to seeing among republicans suggest to me that it's growing pretty quickly there. but still not at majority level. when do you think it will get to the majority level there? >> pr

authority that operates the george washington bridge. the same port authority that's littered with political appointees of christie. it's also the same port authority that came through with this in 2010. it's a letter to zimmer for the port to pay for the study. grant was up for $75,000. and for zimmer it seems like the perfect solution. she was not against developing the land. she just wanted a real professional study and now she had the money to pay for one. and there was a string attached. there was a condition. the port authority would get to pick the firm that did the study but the firm they chose in february 2011 had a solid reputation. this is the letter from the authority authority designating clark kayton hinds thoints do the study. it took a long time through 2012, hurricane sandy slowed things down, then finally in january 2013 the draft of the report came back and zimmer says it baffled hear and her team. the firm was to evaluate a 19-block area in the north end to see what was eligible for that designation of redevelopment. and all of the goodies that come with it. the

contemporaneous writings by mayor zimmer is broader in scope than the george washington bridge lane closings. the sci has the experience 0 to investigate it. the sci serves to conduct fact-finding investigations. it does not have the power to prosecute but it does make all of its work public. this latest potential investigation would with be only the latest facing the christie administration in a scandal that started with the lane closures last september on the george washington bridge. after mayor zimmer aired her allegations yesterday, john wisniewski, heading up the assembly committee charged with look i looking into the bridge scandal, issued a statement saying, quote, we need to obtain all relevant facts, confer with special counsel. new jersey state senate president steve sweeney followed up with a statement pledging to pursue zimmer's assertions. he said, quote, that's new revelations suggest a pattern of behavior by the highest ranking members of this administration that is deeply offensive to the people of new jersey. if true, they could be illegal. the republican state senator mike dohe
