Chris Christie's many Wall Street supporters is that the George Washington Bridge flareup has hurt him but barring any new revelations, it will not derail his possible presidential candidacy in 2016.

A slot previously held by a certain Home Depot founder who'd better step his shit up next time he's on CNBC. “I think people are getting to know the real Mitt Romney. I am thrilled that that is happening. He is really quite a guy. He is, in my opinion, intellectually and morally and managerially the man that is most qualified by far to be president of the United States. You're having a guy this afternoon that is a great hero of mine, but Mitt Romney is even better than Ken Langone...I think the campaign is going good. I think Governor Romney is really getting the American people to see the real Romney. That is what we have needed all along. I wish his family would expose itself more…I'd like to see Mrs. Romney, I would like to see the boys out and all of that more." Tiger's Robertson: hedge fund managers are scared [BloombergTV]
