Chris Christie Blames Campus Unrest On Obama's 'Lawlessness'

So Chris Christie imagines that President Obama is creating an "atmosphere of lawlessness," does he? I think that's a play right out of Saint Ronnie's playbook, too. Or possibly Tricky Dick's. Or both.

The man who is currently blocking access to subpoenaed documents in a criminal case involving his top aides is accusing the President, who for seven years has not even had a whiff of scandal in his administration, of "lawlessness." Alrighty then.

Dave Weigel reports:

Asked about the protests at the University of Missouri and Yale University, where complaints of racism or racial insensitivity have pitted students against administrators, the Republican presidential contender said that President Obama had created an atmosphere of "lawlessness."

"I think part of this is a product of the president’s own unwillingness and inability to bring people together," Christie said in a short interview after a Q&A with Republicans here. "When people think justice is not applied evenly and fairly, they take matters into their own hands. The lawlessness that the president has allowed to exist in this country just absolutely strips people of hope. Our administration would stand for the idea that justice is not just a word, but it’s a way of life. Laws will be applied evenly, fairly, and without bias to everyone."

BWAHAHAHA. Evenly? Fairly? Chris Christie doesn't even know the meaning of the word.

But beyond Christie, this is what every single Republican candidate is doing in this election cycle. They take their own behavior, project it back on the President or other Democrats and expect voters to believe it.

Because of course there could be no reason for those college students to be dissatisfied about the racist treatment they've received on those campuses, or by police officers, right?

What is the term for this? Propaganda? Or indoctrination? Or just simple lying?
