Lonegan's press conference

Steve Lonegan has a problem with Chris Christie, and as it turns out, Chris s Christie’s media consultant, Jamestown Associates.

Lonegan and about two dozen supporters held a press conference today outside Christie’s campaign headquarters in Parsippany.

Lonegan was hotter than the muggy weather in condemning a mailer from state Sen. Marcia Karrow of Hunterdon County that attacked opponent Mike Doherty, an assemblyman and Lonegan supporter.

The flyer noted Doherty’s support last year for presidential candidate Ron Paul and said Doherty backed “surendering” in Iraq. Paul was an anti-war candidate.

The war is not exactly a state issue, but Lonegan said the suggestion that Doherty believes in surrendering is insulting, given the fact he has three children serving in the military.

OK … but what does Christie have to do with that?

“Guilt by association,” Lonegan said, noting that they share the same media consultant.

And attacks like thisĀ one, Lonegan said show that the established Republican party in New Jersey has “deteriorated to a miserable existence.”

    So if Christie’s Barber cuts the hair of a kleptomaniac than by Lonegan’s reason Christie is a kleptomaniac. The sorry state of the Republican party is the fact that this Loonigan is still in the race and he is getting more desperate by the minute.

    When will you people GET it?

    Have you not been taxed enough, has NJ not lost enough jobs to the invasion, both legal and illegal? Christie is the GOP “establishment” guy, said establishment the same globalists who sold off America and her assets, imported poverty and cheap labor that left Americans unable to compete for jobs in their own state and country.

    And taxed us to death to pay for it all.

    Remember Newt’s “Contract with America?” Resounding majority of moderate and conservative voters gave the GOP the majority. Instead of conservative and consitutional values they promised, they facillitated the export of our manufacturing, wealth and jobs and the import of a permanent poor class.

    And Christie is their man, bought and paid for.

    IF you understand the importance of the Consitution, the 1st, 2nd and 10th amendments, state and national sovereignty, you will take A GOOD HARD LOOK to see just who backs your candidate.

    A good place to start? Go here.

    NOW check out their site to see who are card carrying members of the CFR. Newt, HW Bush, Hillery and Wm. Clinton, Cheny and FORBES who endorces Christie. That alone should tell you what Christie is and isn’t.

    Just because they SAY they are conservative doesn’t mean they are. We were fooled by their bait and switch during the 90’s w/the Contract with America.

    Are you so willing to be fooled again? DO YOUR HOMEWORK!!

    The dichotomy is no longer liberal, moderate, conservative, not in Trenton, not in DC.

    It is the socialists who are now in power vs. the globalists. The socialists were put there in reaction to the treacherous GOP promising fiscal conservativism and instead, selling off and selling out this country.

    Lonegan is the only REAL bona fide conservative choice.

    WAKE UP!

    Too bad that so much of politics comes down to some of this stuff.
    Our property taxes keep going up, and it is also harder, and harder, to get business done in NJ.
    When will the people who pay for all of this get a break?
    All of the candidates should be talking about a plan, and a solution to help the residents get a fair deal. They should be but……………

    How many “real conservatives” does it take to change a light bulb? None–why change anything?
