Will NJ follow Wisc.,Ohio,and Mich.?

Without a strong Democratic opponent ( Booker) or a Democratic opponent who would battle every day relentlessly( Sweeney),New Jersey will be in for a possible landslide victory by the Republicans in 2013.

Christie vs. anyone besides Booker or Sweeney will result in a 10 point victory and the loss of the State Senate and possibly the Assembly. Should that occur then Christie will make a bigger name for himself by following in the footsteps of the GOP Governors in Ohio,Wisc. and now Michigan.

The Unions in this state,ESPECIALLY THE GOVERNMENT WORKER BETTER BE REALISTIC OR THEY MIGHT LOSE ALL THEIR RIGHTS.

Backing Buono or some other lightweight will be a disaster.

If it happened in those states is can happen in NJ.

This is not a time for stupid grudges. Whether it is Booker or Sweeney the Democratic party must be united because the alternative is the end of the unions in New Jersey.

    If Chris Christie wants to do Right-to-Work this year, I hope Steve Sweeney will do the pro-worker thing and compromise and make it a little less awful.  That is what the true middle class hero would do.  That’s why I’m calling on Steve Sweeney to preempt the governor and show his true middle class roots and introduce a creative bill that will make New Jersey sorta right-to-work.  Public unions should support it or they are greedy.

    Christie has personal popularity, but no coattails.  If he had coattails his good friend Joe Kyrillos would not have been beaten by double digits.

    We’re not losing the legislature.

    ….if Buono is a lightweight, what does that make Sweeney?  A spectator?

    Should a reverse miracle occur and Buono runs against Christie the tsunami GOP victory could take down the State Senate and put the Assembly in jeopardy.

    Buono would be the McGovern of 2013.

    These are dangerous times .The Democrats and the unions got lazy in Wisc.,Ohio,and Mich.

    If it happened there it can happen here.

    Throughout the country poor or lazy union leaders have miscalculated their political clout. They have not adapted to the new reality of being responsive to the taxpayer demands.

    New Jersey Government worker unions are a perfect example. Their members know that times have changed but their old ,stogy leadership have been behind the times.

    The next 12 months will determine if NJ becomes another casualty in the fight to promote unionism.

    If Government worker union leaders continue to make the wrong decisions regarding politics and politicians ,then unions as we know them will cease to exist.

    Wisc. and Mich were a lot stronger union states than NJ ,…..and look what happened there.

    For you to advocate that Nj Dems should pass RTW measures to avoid Christie doing it worse…is truly sick and pathetic.

    As usual, FA7 you’re a provocateur sniping from the gutter of anonymity.

    Please go join the Republican party and see if you can find a job working for the Christie/Norcross Machine Team……oh wait, you’re already on board.
