Why wouldn't the Democrats be demoralized after a summer that gave us record setting spending, bogus property tax reform, bogus ethics reform, more of Carla Katz and her family running the government, asset monetization, illegal immigrants executing college students in Newark, Senatorial indictments and Broken Boards Busts?
Apparently Republicans are demoralized too. Their message is "the Democrats are bad" and "our bogus property tax reform will be 10% higher." They are not even trying to win.
Here is some inspiring rhetoric from Senate Minority Leader Leonard Lance to the Associated Press:
"It has become fashionable to say that there is little difference between the parties," "There is a real distinction between Republicans and Democrats regarding campaign finance and ethics reform.''
THAT'S NOT ENOUGH OF A DIFFERENCE, SENATOR!
Assembly Minority Leader Alex DeCroce noted that Orange Mayor Mims Hackett, Jr was chairman of the Assembly committe that weighs ethics reform.
Will somebody please give these guys a Red Bull?
If Alex DeCroce and Leonard Lance can not or will not seize this opportunity and lead the charge by giving New Jersey voters a real alternative to the status quo, GOP Chairman Tom Wilson should gather the caucuses and candidates and demand that they elect new leadership NOW.
Potential U.S Senate and Gubernatorial candidates past and present should hit the campaign trails, airwaves, mainstream and Internet media calling for a new state legislature to reform our government and save our state from the Corzine/Katz/Goldman Sachs cabal.
