Corzine has gall asking for campaign donations. he has bought his way into every office he has held. i recall how he beat jim florio in the dem senatorial primary in first race through the sheer weight of his wealth by buying county democratic parties and church groups. it was a sad day for new jersey when Corzine won that race and a sad reflection on the dems and churchmen who lapped up his money for their votes and no one should think it was anything else. corzine should be shunned for his undermining of the democratic process and he good reminder that a good businessman is not necessarily a good politician. in fact he is a lousy one. this dem is going sit out this election.
in comment 3 i meantit will be a disgrace if Corzine loses
phildon't your property taxes bills come from your local government?
Thank you Bob Hennelly for at least attempting to balance Brian’s usual attacks on Jon Corzine. These are tough times here in NJ, I too hate paying perhaps the very highest property taxes in the nation. But this governor inherited this tax structure and has offered some of the biggest rebates to home owners as well. Honestly Brian seems to have had it in for Corzine from the beginning- ever since Senator Corzine voted against the ramp up of the Iraq war. Now it’s kid gloves for George Bush Ranger Christopher J. Christie?
Highest property taxes in nation, will soon be second highest personal income taxes in nation, highest auto insurance and fees, doubled the tolls, most congested state, 9.5% unemployment, etc.
I'm pretty blue about being Blue these days...
Can't afford Corzine anymore, can't vote for a Republican, what's a Jersey girl with Blue political ideals to do?
i will be a disgrace if Corzine. Christie might be a great crusader against crime but the GOP 'just say no' way doesn't work in the modern world.
Will President Obama try pulling Governor Corzine into the religious left agenda of being against gay rights and making political decisions based on faith and the church?
From what I've seen, there needs to be a long term educational plan, one that is actually funded properly, to reverse the years of oppression that African Americans have had to deal with. Unfortunately, what we get is the opposite. The African American culture has grown far apart from mainstream (white) America. I live a mile away from a black neighborhood in Long Island and it's like they speak a different language. What's worse, when an African American comes into a place like a library, they act like they're going to kicked out any time. That kind of attitude is the result of systematic abuse.
