I've been busy deleting most of the hundreds of emails I'm getting today from campaigns I either contributed to or somehow got my info.  (Phoenix City Council??).  But among those I didn't delete was for Barbara Buono.  (Contribution link here.) She's an excellent candidate, but she needs funds to try to inform the people of NJ that Christie is no moderate (as anointed by the "serious people).

Some will not doubt comment that this is quixotic, she's way behind in the polls, etc.  But her campaign can nonetheless, if nothing else, educate people in NJ and elsewhere that Christie is a fraudulent moderate.

My brief against Christie always begins with his cynical and horrible veto of the Hudson River rail tunnel -- in which he single-handedly consigned his state's and NY's residents to years of greater pollution, congestion, hours lost and jobs lost.  That is a scandal of epic proportions and it is a disgrace he is hardly held accountable.

If he gets the GOP nomination (probably not, but don't write him off), people should also know:

    Chris Christie Vetoed Same-Sex Marriage

    Chris Christie Is No Friend to Workers

    Chris Christie Doesn’t Believe in Universal Pre-K

    Chris Christie Misuses State Funds

    Chris Christie Supports the Ryan Budget

    Chris Christie Vetoed a Hike in the Minimum Wage

    Chris Christie Vetoed Equal Pay Legislation

    Chris Christie Targeted Poor Families in His Budget

    Chris Christie Cut Funding to Family Planning Organizations

    Chris Christie Is Proudly Anti-Choice

Finally, don't forget his cynical manipulation of election dates at not insubstantial taxpayer costs, so he won't be running the same date as Corey Booker.

So despite his bullying and braggadocio, he's a coward

Give a contribution to Buono today..

Stop Christie in NJ before he gets a chance to make a national race.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    it is delusional to give Chris Christie a free pass because of a walk on the beach. We don't owe him a cake walk to an important office because he was smart enough to look at the suicide bombers of the Teahadi and then look at the ruins of Post-Sandy NJ and rightly calculate that it was in his own best interests and his state's to get as much federal aid as he could and not as many Fox News kudos as the crazies could give him.

    He's not your friend.

    He will put Teahadi thugs on the Supreme Court if he manages to turn a walk in the park re-election into a national GOP run for the White House and wins. He will do everything the Teahadi thugs call on him to do in any hypothetical Chrisie Administration.

    This disgusting thug will make every Democrat who enables him now look like total useful idiot fools in due time.

    The lesson that will be learned from the Barbara Buono campaign is that, if you stand up when your party calls for a candidate to run a tough race, it is better to walk away because you could get hung out to dry for being a good party member who stands up.

    That will be damaging in ways that we will be paying for for years to come.

    I am a Loco-Foco. I am from the Elizabeth Warren wing of the Democratic Party.

    Governor Cartman is a disgrace to  Asbury Park, Rochelle Park, Roselle Park, Highland Park, Overland Park, Palisades Park, Seaside Park, Elmwood Park, Cliffside Park, Lincoln Park, Island Beach State Park, Branch Brook Park, and Liberty State Park.

    Let's send him  back to South Park.

    It's not a fake orgasm; it's a real yawn.
