Roy Cho and the DCBC according to PolitikerNJ

The article in Tuesday’s politickerNJ** regarding Roy Cho based on insider opinions was nauseating, disgusting, and reeked of jealousy Or perhaps a hint of anti -Korean feelings amongst some of the insiders (who are also political influences on what the DCBC does).  Many of us who are considered the “grassroots thorn in the sides” already know that such feelings exist within our party, and it is time for our Chairman to stop being such a nice guy and expose the person(s) who leaked this nonsense and fire him/her.  Because some of us can pretty easily figure out who it was.

I know that I am sick and tired of the nonsense that exists within the party of small minded people, who covet supposedly important positions or think they do, that wouldn’t get past the pearly gates no matter what they promised the guardian at the entrance.

Reading the article showed how petty these democratic insiders appear to be.  The fact that some of the democratic leaders or former candidates  appear to be considering running in two years because of the great inroads Roy made should he lose- is the best example of a person being chicken livered that I have seen in recent times.

If they didn’t have the guts to run this time, I sure as heck–read real carefully what I am saying- -I and a lot of other people sure as heck wouldn’t support him/her in 2016 especially knowing that the DCBC has insiders working against their own candidate.

I am so tired of the DCBC undermining the best people to run for elections and backing party favorites who don’t have a chance in winning.  It’s time that real Democrats find a different line to run on in 2016 because if you are really a good candidate who can’t be bought in one form or another, you don’t stand a chance of getting real support from Bergen County, unless Roy pulls it out of the box in November and helps to change things-

It’s vitally important that we support Roy Cho in November because he is one of the few candidates out there who has a real chance of defeating Garrett- He is knowledgeable about how Congress functions, understands the importance of reaching out to those who have an opposite view on an issue, and he understands fiscal responsibility.

We all need to get behind Roy Cho now, this year!

So Let’s go, Mr. Chairman and fire the person(s) behind this undermining of our own candidate, and by doing that, hopefully you can stop the Bergen County Dems from being the laughing stock of NJ and the Nation once again.

What an Ass!

Congressional wannabe John Runyan made millions of dollars playing a game (protected by a government-sanctioned monopoly) in hundred million dollar taxpayer-financed stadiums.  Upon retirement, he promptly took a government subsidy to turn his luxury McMansion into a  hobby farm.

Thankfully, Congressman John Adler is taking him to task for it.

LoBiondo’s Credible Challenger

One notable news story that happened during the Andrews announcement and subsequent Lautenberg-Andrews fallout was that a somewhat unknown, but possibly formidable, opponent emerged at the last moment for Frank LoBiondo in NJ-02. David Kurkowski, a Cape May councilman, has made a late bid for LoBiondo’s congressional seat, and Democrats are clearing the slate for him to go mano-a-mano with the person who once pledged a six-term limit, then reneged. Kurkowsi has deep roots in Cape May, judging from his resume, his company, and his personal webpage, and he credits his environmental and preservation efforts as councilman as some of his best accomplishments:

In Cape May, Kurkowski has been a strong supporter of saving the historic Beach Theatre, refurbishing the Washington Street Mall, building a new convention center and getting wireless Internet.

In his first comments to the Press of Atlantic City, Kurkowski lays out a general strategy for the November election:


“I’m committed to peace and prosperity. I believe the wartime economy has had a tragic effect on our country. I lay a lot of blame on LoBiondo and his support of Bush and the war. I will be attacking him on many issues,”

This will work if voters pay close attention to LoBiondo’s actual stand and record on Iraq, stem cell research, and immigration – and if independent publications like Blue Jersey pick up the slack and force the press and papers to cover LoBiondo’s problematic record, as with what happened, for example when Blue Jersey began covering LoBiondo’s role in the Deepwater scandal in 2006.

Cumberland County, and other NJ-02 counties such as Atlantic Co., have cleared their party lines for Kurkowski, and CC Chair Lou Magazzu, who once ran unsuccessfully against LoBiondo, seems to be an unofficial advisor to Kurkowski. The two other candidates, Viola Thomas-Hughes, who ran a spirited, but resource-deficient, campaign in 2006, and another candidate, Bridgeton schoolteacher Celeste Riley, have both apparently cleared the way for Kurkowski.
