Asbury Park Press Gives Negative Endorsement of Christie

If you have read the NY Times of the Philadelphia Inquirer endorsement of Jon Corzine you have seen the negative, anything but the other guy endorsement.

But just when you think an newspaper endorsement can’t be any more less supportive of their candidate, today the Asbury Park Press endorsed Chris Christie with an endorsement even worse then the Times and Inquirer endorsments.

Christie has run a disappointing campaign. He has made himself vulnerable on a number of ethics-related issues. He has provided no specific plan for property tax relief. He says he will balance the budget with a projected $8 billion to $10 billion deficit next year while reducing income taxes, corporate taxes and estate taxes. We’re highly skeptical of his ability to do so.

Christie has run a poor campaign. He has failed to tap into the deep dissatisfaction with New Jersey’s sky-high property taxes by offering a coherent plan to address the problem. Voters are disenchanted with Corzine and Christie. But that shouldn’t obscure the sharp philosophical differences between the two. Daggett says Democrats and Republicans alike are responsible for the state’s troubles. There is some truth to that. But for the past eight years, the blame rests squarely with the Democrats.

Instead of telling us why we should vote for Christie, the majority of the endorsement focuses on why we shouldn’t vote for Corzine. Well if you live in NJ then you already new that, we don’t need newspaper to tell us that.

Daggett still wins the newspaper endorsement count, with NJ newspapers Daggett 16, Christie 3 and Corzine 1.

Further, the newspapers endorsing Christie and Corzine give us nothing more than our candidate sucks but the other guy is worse.

The endorsement even cites a review of Daggett’s tax plan by a republican politician, totally ignoring the Associated Press independent economists review of the candidates tax plans that says Daggett’s plan is the best and contradicts the statements in the Asbury Park Press endorsement.

Some one should also tell them that by creating a huge budget deficit, Christie will be forced to raise taxes.

In typical GOP fashion, the endorsement continues to spread the fear mongering a vote for Daggett is a vote for Corzine and the GOP lies that Daggett’s plan will raise taxes. I am surprised they didn’t come right out a call Chris Daggett a racist like 101.5 fm.

Vote Daggett!! Say no more to politics as usual. Break the Cycle.

Sleazy GOP Lies from 101.5 FM – Daggett doesn’t like black people

It is just beyond my comprehension what the GOP doesn’t get about the fact that the sleazy campaigns based on negative attacks and misinformation is not going to win elections. Its the issues stupid! Haven’t they learned that from the McCain and Palin campaign?

Someone should send them that memo, because NJ’s most listened to Radio Station NJ  101.5 FM has become a mouthpiece for the GOP lately spitting out every piece of misinformation about Chris Daggett that they can dream up. It’s particularly shocking because over the last 4 or more years the station has gained a lot of respect among voters for its constant coverage and pressure on corrupt politicians in Trenton gaining a reputation as a true advocate for the citizens of NJ.

But today, the Republican Party and 101.5 FM has sunk to an all time low making up a lie live on air that Independent Candidate for Governor Chris Daggett doesn’t like black people. This has to be one of most sleazy kind of lie and character attack to falsely claim that Chris Daggett is a racist.

Daggett Demands Investigation of BILLIONS Missing From NJ School Construction Fund

In the 3rd Gubernatorial Debate Chris Daggett Nailed Christie and Corzine for Corruption

Daggett went on to call for an investigation into over $6 Billion dollars that is missing from the NJ Schools Construction Fund. Governor Corzine responded that he has already put all the proper controls and regulations in place, but that doesn’t answer the question of where billions of dollars went.

Christie replied that if he is elected governor he would open an investigation. But my question to Christie was the US Attorney General while all of this was happening and Corzine was Governor. Why wait until becoming governor to launch an investigation into billions of dollars missing? And Governor Corzine why haven’t you launched an investigation?
