So it's 4 years later and time for another election. This time we have Chris Christie as the likely Republican candidate. Nobody in the media has really called him to task for his actions as US Attorney which include questionable no-bid contracts to his political buddies, campaign contributions coinciding with his appointment and the dropping of charges against his brother by a fellow Bush appointed US Attorney. Now that he's running for Governor, hopefully someone will start asking the hard questions about his record. We all remember how quickly public opinion of John McCain turned around once the fawning media coverage was tempered by the Democrats getting the truth out about his real record.

I'm going to start a new LJ Community for this election. Feel free to join if you'd like. corzine2009

Well, I guess it's time to close up this community. We won the election with Corzine and, even better, we just kicked the Republicans out of the House and Senate (including once again sending a Democrat to the Senate from New Jersey). So I guess that's the end of this community.

Corzine wins...
This community was pretty quiet, much busier than the Forrester community (oh wait...there was no Forrester community). I just thought I'd post this.

Good job everyone.

I really wish South Jersey had a real newspaper instead of the Republican propaganda machines it has in the Burlington County Times and the Courier Post. It's nice that they take Forrester for his word but I hate to break it to them, his word is worth nothing. He's the corrupt, pay-to-play veteran who talks about cleaning up the government. He's a man who's made his fortune on the backs of civil servants and he claims he's going to help working people?

Current Mood: angry

ALong article on Corzine
This is a very long article, but worth the read. Sometimes I'm not sure if the author likes Corzine or not, by the way he words things. Anyway, here are a few of the passages that most intrigued me.

"Though Forrester is not thought to be a particularly formidable opponent, the Republican National Committee has the resources—and, many believe, the will—to make the race a difficult one for Corzine. “They haven’t done much at all yet,” says one Democratic Party leader. “The big question is what their strategy will be. Do they come here and go district by district registering voters and getting them out on Election Day like they did in Ohio? Do they pump money into the campaign through the 527s like they did with the Swift Boat stuff? In other words, do they really decide to play hardball? If they do, the election could end up too close to call. If they don’t, Corzine wins by five points.”

Wow - only 5 points?

"I’m 58 now,” he says, “and I’m the last person on every committee I sit on. I’d have to stay in Washington until I’m 80 to be a committee chairman.”

"To fight the corruption that plagues New Jersey politics, Corzine has said he will relinquish some of the governor’s power by appointing an independent state comptroller to scrutinize all state contracts. His overall plan on the policy front can be described in one broad stroke: Make New Jersey more affordable. Specifically, he talks about health insurance, education, and property taxes.

This plan is actually a reflection of his core belief, which drives his behavior in the Senate as well. As one of his aides put it to me, Corzine is committed to “universal access.” That is, universal access to the American Dream—meaning everyone is entitled to education, health care, housing, and a decent wage. It is a basic philosophy that has consistently ranked him as one of the Senate’s most liberal members.

The people closest to him say he has talked openly about wanting to run for the White House. He denies it. “I’m not trying to build toward something bigger, toward higher political office,” he says. He doesn’t, however, deny being ambitious"

Its the economy, stupid...
Or at least, proprty tax relief for NJ. I think I'll trust the former CEO of one of the largest and most profitable Wall Street firms in US history to crunch numbers for me.
