  • Is Christie headed for a great fall?

    By Art Gallagher | MoreMonmouthMusings Prominent New Jersey Republicans seem to finally be moving out of Governor Chris Christie’s shadow. This afternoon The Star Ledger reported that Monmouth County State Senator Joe Kyrillos was among the 15 or so New Jersey Republicans who met with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, a top rival of Christie’s for the 2016 GOP […]

  • Mr. Senator: There’s nothing racial about the ‘War on Drugs’

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog I’m glad Cory Booker (D-Twitter) spent MLK Day doing something other than slinging platitudes like most of the political world, Save Jerseyans. That’s what he does most days; I guess holidays are when he breaks out of the box? He seized upon the opportunity to double-down on one […]

  • Another Lovefestivus for Rand and Cory

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog For the second year in a row, Save Jerseyans, Rand Paul (R-KY) and Cory Booker (D-Twitter) callously exploited the holy sanctity of that most revered of all American holidays – Festivus – all in order to remind us that they’re post-partisan figures. Here’s the December 23rd tweet exchange between […]

  • Menendez: Central Player in Obama’s Cash-for-Favors Foreign Policy?

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog If President Obama’s foreign policy doesn’t make any sense to you, Save Jerseyans, than maybe it’s because the only constant at work here is the enrichment of the Democrat Party. Remember back in January? When we learned that everyone’s favorite Caribbean tourist and outgoing chairman of the Senate […]

  • Notes from the YRNF Louisiana Deployment

    By Christopher A. Canarelli | The Save Jersey Blog Having recently returned from a week in the home state of newly re-elected Governor Rick Scott, among famous cartoon mice and orcas, I’m a bit behind on addressing some of the major political events that have taken place – one of which is the Louisiana runoff […]

  • Menendez: Obama just “vindicated the brutal behavior of the Cuban government”

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Everyone’s favorite Caribbean tourist Bob Menendez (D-Ecuador/Dominican Republic) is once again finding himself in opposition to the Obama Administration on the foreign affairs front, Save Jerseyans, moments after the White House performed an about-face after decades of single-track Cuban-American policy. Menendez didn’t mince words: “President Obama’s actions have vindicated […]

  • Earth to Bob: Obama has already failed!

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Everyone’s favorite Caribbean tourist Bob Menendez (D-Ecuador/Dominican Republic) sat down with Cory Booker (D-Twitter) and television’s Steve Adubato on Wednesday evening, Save Jerseyans, for an interview billed as focusing on issues facing the new Congress. Booker did his Booker thing and spoke in vague generalities. Menendez chose […]

  • It’s Official: Landrieu is a Loser

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Even a last minute visit from his Royal Twitterocity couldn’t save U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu from the political chopping block in a Saturday run-off election, Save Jerseyans. The AP called the 2014 cycle’s only outstanding Senate race for Republican challenger Bill Cassidy only minutes after polls closed; Landrieu was […]

  • Booker Tries to Bail Out Landrieu

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Harry Reid’s acquiescence to a vote on the long-languising Keystone XL Pipeline couldn’t save Mary Landrieu, Save Jerseyans. Nothing can. Cory Booker (D-Twitter) fancies himself a superhero but even he knows that. He still gave it a shot over the weekend, campaigning in areas heavily-populated by black […]

  • Election Winners and Losers: National Edition

    By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot There were many winners and losers in last week’s Big GOP Wave. And yes, for every winner there were losers — in some cases multiple losers. So, let’s get right to it: WINNER – New Jersey Governor Chris Christie who helmed the Republican Governors Association to a stunning triumph in […]

  • We’ll help you pack, Tom!

    By Scott St. Clair | The Save Jersey Blog Poor Tom Moran – an election doesn’t go his way so he wants to chuck the U.S. Constitution to avoid the inconvenience of his party never facing defeat again. The Star-Ledger’s editorial guiding light finds the compromise between large and small states arrived at during the […]

  • I Told You So: Moran wants to tear up Constitution after GOP Wave

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog We’re tired of being right about these bedwetters and mouthbreathers, Save Jerseyans, but they’re just so damn predictable. Take for instance the Star-Ledger‘s thin-skinned editorial board chief Tom Moran. I made this prediction a few weeks before last Tuesday’s Republican wave washed hundreds of Democrats at the local, […]
