Trenton Democrats have accomplished little lately other than proposing new tax hikes and whining endlessly about public funding for abortion.
It’s unproductive, inappropriate, and… kind of sad.
Their latest attempt at relevancy? Senators Sweeney and Weinberg issued a joint release today calling on Governor Chris Christie to denounce one of the dozens of candidates he’s stumped for this cycle — Republican Indiana Senate Candidate Richard Mourdock — for a debate gaffe:
Richard Mourdock’s comments are an insult not only to women, but to anyone with any shred of intelligence, and compassion and empathy for victims of rape,” said Weinberg (D-Bergen). “These comments don’t belong in our public discourse, let alone anywhere in the last century. Governor Christie, the women of New Jersey are watching and waiting for your response. But given your antipathy towards women’s health and your defunding last year of a center for sexually abused children, we aren’t holding our collective breath.”
So they want Christie to apologize for something that someone else said. Talk about a reach! And by the way: have Sweeney or Weinberg or any other Trenton Democrats ever apologized to voters for backing Jim “Rest Stop” McGreevey or Jon “M’Fn Global” Corzine? Or any of the other many NJ Dems who have gotten jammed up in recent years? Those folks actually did stupid things. Mourdock simply said something stupid. Big difference.
But have you ever seen a political party leadership sooo desperate to land a punch, Save Jerseyans? They’ve been trying for three years, and thus far, the Governor’s approval rating remains sky-high. It must be depressing…
