Save New Jersey Initiative

It is only fitting that Barack Obama campaign for New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine. They have so much in common. Especially when it comes to connections to crime and corruption  and wasting taxpayer’s money on their own agenda.

From the New York Post, October 24, 2009.
“Corzine, cash & corruption”
“New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine really has no shame.

Just hours after Bergen County’s longtime Democratic machine boss, Joseph Ferriero, was convicted Thursday on three federal felony corruption counts — which could land him in prison for 20 years — New Jersey’s governor proudly defended having written him personal checks totaling nearly a half-million dollars.

That’s right: Corzine, the Wall Street multimillionaire, and his family have funneled no less than $441,600 of their own money to keep Ferriero’s arrogant political machine rolling.

And Corzine claims to be leading the charge of ethics reform in the state.

During Thursday night’s final gubernatorial debate, Corzine claimed — with a straight face — that “when I have written checks to the Bergen County Democratic Organization, it is not to Joe Ferriero.”

Tell that to anyone who knows Jersey politics; Ferriero practically ran Bergen County single-handedly.

Corzine insisted that he “took on Joe Ferriero myself, long before the federal prosecutors.”

Yet, as one observer put it, if taking on Ferriero meant giving him nearly $500,000, feel free to take us on anytime.

In fact, even as Ferriero was being probed by the grand jury, Corzine sent out a statewide glossy flier that not only endorsed the Bergen boss, but praised his political tactics.”

Birds of a feather do flock together. We know that from Obama’s past close associations with the likes of Tony Rezko, Rod Blagojevich, Stuart Levine, et al.
Now Obama is not only revealing his true character, his popularity and support are plummeting and his first priority is saving face by trying to keep the unpopular NJ Governor Corzine from losing to a Republican. Instead of doing the job of Commander in Chief, focusing on the war in Afghanistan, he is spending time and taxpayer money to support his crony, Corzine.
From the NY Times, October 21, 2009.

“Obama Campaigns for Corzine in Close Race”
“Hoping to spare his party an embarrassing defeat in one of the year’s most closely watched elections, President Obama on Wednesday campaigned alongside Gov. Jon S. Corzine of New Jersey, saying that a Democratic victory in the state would help the president carry out the political change he was elected to bring to Washington last year.

Mr. Corzine is the first incumbent governor to seek re-election since the economic crisis hit last fall, and he is locked n a tight race with the Republican nominee, Christopher J. Christie, who has criticized Mr. Corzine over New Jersey’s spiraling taxes and rising unemployment.”
“The appearance was part of a political blitz for Mr. Obama, who appeared in New York Tuesday to raise more than $3 million for two Democrats and is scheduled to stump in Massachusetts and Virginia next week.

Mr. Christie was careful not to criticize Mr. Obama, but said that New Jersey voters were savvy enough to judge Mr. Corzine on his own record.

“Air Force One is leaving tonight,” he said. “If they vote for Jon Corzine, President Obama isn’t moving in to run the state.””

Obama will travel to NJ on Monday to spend more taxpayer money

 

 
From the Star Ledger,  October 28, 2009.
“Corzine’s money fuels his comeback”
“Gov. Jon Corzine continues to tap into his personal fortune to dramatically outspend his opponents in a comeback bid for a second term, reports released yesterday show.

Corzine, a former Wall Street executive, has spent $23.6 million on the general election, compared to Republican Chris Christie’s $8.8 million and independent Chris Daggett’s $1.2 million, according to the state Election Law Enforcement Commission.

Corzine donated or loaned his general election campaign $22.6 million of its $24.1 million, writing checks to cover TV ads, several pollsters and a $15,000 hall rental for President Obama’s visit to Fairleigh Dickinson University.

The Democrat has now dedicated more than $120 million of his own money in his campaigns. He spent a combined $100 million on successful bids for U.S. Senate in 2000 and governor in 2005.

The governor dismissed questions about his spending yesterday, saying “I have no idea” whether the financial advantage enabled him to pull even in recent polls.”
“Christie said Corzine’s wallet played a “huge role” in changing the dynamics of the campaign.

“When somebody outspends you 3 to 1 on nothing but negative ads, that has an effect, there’s no question that has an effect,” he said in Monroe Township. “That’s quite a thing to be up against.””

The Citizen Wells blog is asking for your support to save New Jersey and effectively, the country.

What we are asking for is simple and is based on a simple and proven concept.

Six degrees of separation.

“Six degrees of separation is the theory that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries. ”

This is a simple strategy that is at the heart of grassroots efforts.

Contact as many people as possible and have them do the same. If you have a blog or website, put up article(s) about what is going on in New Jersey. Quote this site, borrow info from this site or create your own article. I am not looking for credit, just results.

We cannot let Obama and Corzine steal this election to validate Obama’s agenda.

We cannot let corrupt politicians buy votes, especially with taxpayer dollars.

Let’s roll.

Wells
