WASHINGTON (CNN) – New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine's campaign released a new ad Tuesday that ties Republican opponent Chris Christie to former President George W.Bush, and to conservative culture war stands on social issues and gun control.
"What can you expect from Chris Christie? A governor who'll repeat the failed Bush economics," the announcer says.
The 30-second spot title "Expect," points to Christie's positions on abortion, stem cell research, and gun laws - a laundry list of Corzine's campaign trail attacks on his GOP challenger. "A governor who doesn't share our values. Chris Christie. Wrong when it matters most," the ad concludes.
A Farleigh Dickinson University survey released earlier this month suggests Corzine and Christie are now neck-and-neck among registered voters, 44 percent to 43 percent, with 9 percent undecided.
Voters in New Jersey head to the polls on November 3.
I'll take Bush and his 5-6% unemployment over the failed policies of the last 9 months and 9.8% unemployment any day of the week.
Obama WISHES he was Bush.
Time may tell if Obama WISHES he was Carter. After all, they have the same prize, let's hope they have the same term limit.
Why is Christie opposed to making specific recommendations to trim the fat out of the state budget?
The Progressive Democratic Party handlers have one thing in mind. Create two classes of people, no more happy middle class. It will be them who pull the strings and us who have no choice but to follow in lock step. This is why they want to make illegal immigrants legal. To overwhelm the middle class voters and give them complete control. They don’t care what we think, they just want power.
They have already proven that they cannot cure hunger or poverty. Their control just means more of the same of whatever their current cause is.
Want Independents to become a Democrats ?
Dump the progressives, they are nothing but a mix of elitists and communists.
Stop trying to solve every issue in the world – solve one, just one problem at a time.
When we see you have resolved that issue in an efficient manner without affecting millions of other people
Christie is part of the old regime and will continue the Bush policies.
Hey Corzine, rather than do nothing but attack Christie, why don't you list your achievements and accomplishments these past four years as Governor? Oh, that's right. I forgot. Most campaign ads are 30 seconds long and not 2 seconds, which is about all the time you would need to list anything worthwhile you've done.
excuse me, unemployment rates started increasing
according to the data collected by the bureau of labor statistics
All the Dems are able to do is bash Bush. It's their only play in their playbook. He's been out of office for 10 months now, and by 2010 he'll be out of office for nearly 2 years. It's getting old. Yeah Bush was a dissapointment, but seriously, what has Obama done? The Blame Bush Game is only going to last for so long.
obama is already the best president this nation has ever had...after his second term the country will vote to allow for a 3rd term, you'll see...the sad fear mongoring days are over, conservatives have been quieted by the rest of the world
Republican Christie loved George W. He rubber-stamped all the way. Enough said.
Yeah, failed policies by the Bush administration in that Bush failed to regulate the mortgage industry therefore letting it collapse...It certainly NEVER could have been his pal Barney Franks or Dodd or Maxine Waters who actually blocked any legislature efforts to regulate Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac in 2001 AND in 2003. These facts seem to be swept under the rug for some strange reason....
LEAVE PRESIDENT BUSH ALONE, IDIOT – you will wish you had him back before all of this mess is over. President Bush was and is a class act – he has more character than Obama will ever have. Obama should have been a Movie Star not a President.
Republican Christie would cozy up to George W. again if he thought he'd grap a few votes from it. Christie will say and do anything to attract a vote.
Attack the republicans but calling their slyness and deceit and you will win back your seat!!. " Just go you cant degrade women and then ask for their vote"
"A governor who doesn't share our values. Chris Christie. Wrong when it matters most,"
So, from the ad am I to assume that Corzine thinks it's OK to rip potential members of society from the womb, then hand the remains over to a researcher? The only folks that should be allowed to carry guns are members of the gov't squads that the governor dictates approval of?
From this I can infer that perhaps Christie has the evil notion that the good folks in New Jersey should keep more of their money and spend/invest on their own behalf instead of giving it to the state so they can dole it out to those they feel merit the stipend.
How could anyone align themselves with that kind of thinking?
Last time I checked, President Bush isn't running for Governor of New Jersey. When are the Democrats going to stand for something instead of just saying "Bush is Bad, it's all his fault!"? The current international and national situation is all on President Obama's watch - quit trying to blame President Bush.
The Democrats still haven't figured out what the American People already know – Bush isn't in office anymore Obama is. They are not going to win running against Bush – and they are running away from Obama.
george soris hinchman... corzine will stoop to new lows,,, how sad,,,,
The blame Bush scenario is getting pretty old by now and it's not going to work, maybe Corzine might do well to readjust his campaign and blame Obama instead.
I'm From NJ. Democrats have ran the state for 10 plus years their is KNOWONE TO BLAME but the DEMOCRATS!! If Corzine would wake up and stop blaming everyone else for his mistakes and all out LIES during the last election!!
Last I checked the economy was doing much better before the Dems took control of Congress. Just saying.
If Corzine wins, then NJ deserves what it gets and I move to a red state.
For the record...
Abortion is legal and will continue to be legal. That being said, Taxpayers should not pay for them here or abroad.
Stem cell research/treatment is unproven. I know a couple who had a doctore botch their child's delivery and the baby now has cerebral palsy. After 3 trips to the Dominican Republic to have the little girl injected with stem cells, there has been no change.
Gun Control, Second Amendment, need I say more?
How do you distract the NJ public from focusing on your failures!? Attack, attack, attack, while offering not even a hint of a solution or even a glimpse of what the Corzine plan is. I know that the people of NJ are smart enough to see through this.
What's worse is the Corzine Billboards in NJ; just a picture of Obama speaking and Corzine smiling behind him. Very appropriate and very telling: Add nothing, fix nothing and blame everything on someone else.
Goodbye, Mr. Corzine.
Corzine,Has never worked for a living,It appears he believes that a poor man can hire people to work for him. Rich people invest in their companies,by hiring people to work for them,So do corporations and large businesses. When they get a Tax break they expand their business,Only a Dumb A$$ like Corzine would Attack a Tax Cut for the People who create jobs.
People will continue to bash Bush, but fail to realize that it isn't by accident that we weren't attacked again after 9/11.
Obama still believes the Presidency is a popularity contest, and Corzine's failed attempt to hang on to Obama's coat tail shows how much influence Obama doesn't have!
