Chris Christie’s… NAZI JERSEY!
Today’s let’s-urinate-on-the-memory-of-Nazi-victims comes to us courtesy of Communications Workers of America International Vice President Christopher Shelton, who seems to be having difficulty telling the difference between murdering millions of people in literal carload lots, and ending public sector employees’ ability to collectively bargain over how much of said people’s work-offered health insurance policies has to come out of their pocket. And by ‘be having difficulty | Read More »
Chris Christie kills ARC Train project. Again.
Hey, remember the ARC Train project? For those who don’t keep track of arcane New Jersey political footballs, the project was a long-proposed, long-delayed plan to build an underground light rail tunnel between Newark and NYC. This project got rushed ahead by former Governor Jon Corzine – Excuse me for a moment: former Governor Jon Corzine. That’s still a pleasure to type out. ..who needed | Read More »
You know what’s a great antidote for a rotten mood?
Because I was having one: long story, but it involved wondering what I’ve been doing lately. Then I see this: Gov Christie calls S-L columnist thin-skinned for inquiring about his ‘confrontational tone’ (See also: Hot Air, AoSHQ) …and I realize that one thing I’ve been doing lately is helping people like Chris Christie get elected. You’re welcome. Moe Lane PS: No. Get your own. Crossposted | Read More »
The WSJ Christie interview.
More of this, please: NJEA President Barbara Keshishian visited his office this week to apologize for a recent email sent to thousands of teachers by a union official that included a mock prayer for the governor’s death. According to [NJ Governor Chris] Christie, the conversation went something like this: He accepted her apology immediately but asked if the email sender would be fired for “doing | Read More »
Chris Christie (R, NJ) zeros out faith-based program!
Sixty-five million dollars’ worth. The entire budget, in fact: Gov. Chris Christie is taking $65 million, the entire allocation, from the state’s global warming fund, and $5.9 million, from the toxic waste site cleanup program, to help close the over $10 billion deficit in his $29.3 billion 2010-11 state budget, the state environmental protection commissioner said Monday. In discussing the Department of Environmental Protection’s proposed | Read More »
Texas and New Jersey: perfect together.
The New Ledger sat down with Governor Rick Perry a few weeks ago, and in the course of talking about Perry’s success (and his working principles of governing) came this exchange: TNL: …do you think Republicans will win if they embrace that sort of approach in other states with all their challenges? And what does that look like? Perry: Well, look at a state like | Read More »
Gov. Chris Christie (R, NJ) plants one right between the eyes.
I grew up in New Jersey, and I can assure you this: all over the state, suddenly-embattled Democratic legislators and apparatchiks are now routinely referring to Gov. Christie as “that fat [insert expletive here]” – with a wide range of choices for the expletive. Why? Because that fat [insert expletive here] just told the unions that elections have consequences, and he’s one of them. Governor | Read More »
Governor-elects Christie, McDonnell fib at the RGA shindig.
They were asked why they didn’t bring in former Governor Sarah Palin to campaign for them in Virginia & New Jersey, and both of them made what are entirely excusable fibs about scheduling conflicts and the need to stay focused on state-specific problems. Come, I will hide nothing from you: they didn’t bring her in because both of them concluded that her reputation had taken | Read More »
And now, a special message to the President of the United States.
The man who thought that he could take over the Corzine campaign and drive it to victory. Have a nice night. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Stopping the stealing of New Jersey.
Big Government’s open about the fact that this is an issue: Will Corzine Allies Steal the Election in New Jersey? ACORN, Dirty Tricks and Absentee Ballot Fraud New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine is locked in the political fight of his life. With just hours left before voting, polls show a neck-and-neck race between Corzine and GOP candidate Chris Christie, with Independent candidate Chris Daggett pulling | Read More »
Corzine: for leasing the Turnpike before he was against it…
Thursday, New York Times: The Democratic governor, Jon S. Corzine, says he may revisit his plan to lease the New Jersey Turnpike to raise cash — a proposal that he abandoned last year in the face of intense opposition from lawmakers and voters. Friday, Philly.com: New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine says he has no plans to increase tolls or lease toll roads. (The New York | Read More »
Christie to Corzine: ‘Man up, and *say* I’m fat.’
Via Hot Air comes this Neil Cavuto piece on Don Imus’ interview with Chris Christie, where Chris addresses the two central issues of the Corzine campaign: Christie’s weight, and Corzine’s inability to even face that forthrightly. “Hey listen: if you’re gonna do it, at least man up and say I’m fat.” The phrase ‘wusses out’ was then used – accurately – followed by a couple | Read More »
PPP: maybe DON’T GOTV for Corzine?
At least, that’s the impression that I’m getting from this PPP blog entry: The voters under 30 in New Jersey in our latest poll reported voting for Obama 56-36 last year. But they support Corzine just 42-40 over Chris Christie this fall with 13% going to Chris Daggett. In fact, in general I’m getting the impression that PPP is quietly operating from the expectation that | Read More »
NJ-GOV: New PPP, Rasmussen polls out.
And if you thought that yesterday’s semi-cryptic blog post from the former was just some prepare-the-Democrats-for-some-bad-news, and not an attempt to raise Republican hopes… well, you were right. Chris Christie now leads Jon Corzine 42-38 in the race to be New Jersey’s next Governor, a slight increase from our poll two weeks that showed his advantage at 40-39. In other words, the partisan Democratic polling | Read More »
I know that ‘Candidates swing away in final debate’ (NJ)…
…may make for an interesting headline; but I have a possibly more accurate one. Supporters face off An hour before the debate, crowds of Christie and Daggett supporters faced off in front of the studios, yelling taunts from opposite sides of the street and separated by cars. “Sinking ship! Sinking ship!” chanted the Daggett fans, a reference to Christie’s slippage in the polls. “We can’t | Read More »
Why *did* Gov. Corzine fund Ferriero’s corruption for so long?
I mean, I know that the Governor’s rich, thanks to Goldman-Sachs – so donating a mere $440,000 or so to former Bergen County chair Joe Ferriero (and yet another convicted Democratic politician) over the years may have been a mere lark. A minor duty. He just did what they told him to. Still, you’d have thought that Corzine might have noticed all the dirty dealing | Read More »
(Via Hot Air) The Democrats in this Politico piece about former Gov. Palin and the VA/NJ races are spouting nonsense about her long term appeal*, of course – they’re aware as I am that she’s going to be very much in demand in Congressional races where the Democratic incumbent is holding down a seat in a district that McCain or Bush won. Of which there | Read More »
[Insert Torricelli-themed pun involving Corzine rumor here.]
RedState colleague Mark Impomeni reports that New Jersey Democrats may be contemplating putting the Torch to Corzine’s campaign: It could be déjà vu all over again in New Jersey, as rumors percolate that Democrats may force incumbent Gov. Jon Corzine off the November ballot if his poll numbers do not improve quickly. Corzine, a former United States Senator and first-term governor, trails Republican challenger Christopher | Read More »
Update on Hudson County Democratic Party Organlegging Arrests.
Some details from the story (covered here and here): Yes, in fact: there was trafficking in human organs involved. At least one individual has been brought up on charges of attempting to sell a liver. The list of individuals and charges can be found here: we’re looking at conspiracy to commit extortion, money laundering, and again, at least one charge in trafficking in human organs. | Read More »
NJ Gubernatorial polls.
The two new ones: Strategic Vision: Jim Geraghty reports that it’s 53-38 Christie over Corzine. Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey: 37/49 approval rating for Corzine: only 13% think that he’s accomplished anything. It looks like the President’s emergency visit to New Jersey accomplished little, if anything, to rescue Corzine from his slump. So is it over? No, or at least not yet: but… If you begin | Read More »
