Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda in Two Words

Well, New Jersey is stuck with Governor Chris Christie (or later, Governor Kim Guadagno) for four more years. People decided to vote for a myth perpetuated by an Orwellian taxpayer-funded propaganda machine instead of a candidate who represents their best interests. And whose fault is that? Democrats.

Buono could have won if she had the support of the party. Buono should have won in a “blue” state. Buono would have won if she had had the requisite financial support to get her message out.

Not all Democrats were Christie enablers. People like Senator Loretta Weinberg and Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson Coleman were proactive supporters of the challenger. On the national level, Governors Martin O’Malley and Deval Patrick came to New Jersey to stump for Buono. To all of them, I have two words: Thank You.

Some supporters were late to the game, like DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz and then-Mayor Cory Booker.  To these late-to-the-game players, I also have two words: “Nice try.”

Some key Democrats opted out of getting involved. Quite an un-patriotic thing to do. Bill and Hillary Clinton supported their friend Terry McAulliffe in Virginia but couldn’t they have made one appearance in the Garden State? Barack Obama had his photo op with Chris Christie but treated Buono as if she were invisible. Joe Biden swore in Jeff Chiesa and Cory Booker but acted as if Amtrak never went past the 30th Street Station. To them, I have two words: “Why not?”

But the big problem is that many Democrats proactively supported His Arrogance. “Democrats” like Brian Stack and Joe DiVincenzo are traitors to their party and should not receive one cent of support from the party coffers. Other Democratic organizations gave lip service to the Buono campaign and went through the motions, but their support was shallow and non-convincing. To all those “Democrats”, I also have two words.


  1. Funny how Republicans who failed to support Cuccinelli are moderate saviors of their party, but Democrats who failed to support Buono are "traitors to their party".

    But cheer up, at least New Yorkers finally elected a communist as mayor. Wonder how long it will take him to turn New York into Detroit.

  2. Glen is channeling his inner Joe McCarthy, an alcoholic demagogue who would say (LIE) or do anything (LIE SOME MORE) to gain some power. Typical of a right wing liar to label someone he doesn't like as a communist. They did the same thing to MLK back in the 1950s and 1960s. They tried to portray Dr. Martin Luther King as a communist. If Glen were alive then, he would be yelling commie, commie at MLK. Does Glen yell commie, commie, commie at the Waltons who are heavily invested in COMMIE CHINA?
