Where Is Obama? Not With Barbara.

He’s 58 miles from the NJ border, an hour drive from Mantague, NJ.

President Barack Obama is with Vice President Joe Biden in Scranton, PA, the town Biden grew up in.  

Meanwhile last week the President endorsed Corey Booker, and last May he hung out with Chris Christie at the NJ Shore, and before that he endorsed Jeremiah Healy for Mayor of jersey City.  So he’s not afraid to get involved with NJ electoral politics.

But he is not coming to New Jersey to hang with Barbara Buono, or to endorse her for Governor.  Not with an e-mail, not with a visit, not with a telegraph, not even with a wink and a nod.

Sigh.

    One visit by Hillary takes another 5 points off the poll numbers.

    I am sick and tired about hearing all this ” sister ” crap .

    Hey Hillary,put up or shut up about female candidates.

    but it’s a different situation.  Sure, we’d love to have her but she has no position in the Democratic party.  She is a private citizen at this point.

    But President Obama is, according to tradition and reality, the leader of the Democratic Party. Leaving one of your own hanging, especially against a likely GOP Presidential candidate, is just not right for the leader of the party.

    When I last checked, Hillary had the highest approval rating of any politician in the country. As an aside, Buono is already netting 80% of Dems against Christie, getting them to come home shouldn’t be the issue.

    is making Hillary excuses?  It ain’t me.  She’s just not the head of the party.
