Jon Corzine has waged a campaign for re-election that does not even attempt to cloak his four years as governor in robes of success.
Instead, only reason given to re-elect the Wall Street billionaire who presided over a New Jersey that’s gotten worse than it was under McGreevey, is that you should be afraid of his opponent, Christopher Christie.
As a Democrat it is insulting for me to see Corzine hiding behind Barack Obama, saying that unemployment is worse elsewhere or behaving as if the plethora of unsolved problems does not exist.
The guy does not overtly admit he has been a total failure but the message is implicit in his meaningless $120 million advertising campaign.
What he is telling us is that things could be worse, but that’s impossible.
Voting for Corzine is as crazy as voting for Bush would have been last year.
I do not agree with Christie’s position on abortion. As a Republican, his views are entirely different from mine on a whole range of issues.
Not only do I remain unimpressed with his performance in public office, but I don’t trust his friends.
I will be voting for Christie because Corzine is as disappointing a failure as one could get, and we need change for the sake of doing things differently.
I will be voting for Christie because he is not Jon Corzine.
I would be thrilled to see an elected Christie exceed my expectations, but I am not counting on it.
There is simply no reason to give Corzine another term and New Jerseyans should fire him just as they did when he was CEO at Goldman Sachs.
When you meet total failure, change is the only option.
