Jon Corzine Bought and Bossed
Corzine himself was one of the cheerleaders who took to the podium and helped whip the union members into a cheering, noise-making frenzy.The last line obviously a rip-off of President Bush’s famous words at ground zero after 9/11, only in this case taxpayers and lawmakers are the enemy. Can you imagine any executive carrying on at a union rally as Corzine did yesterday? So much for being an executive that is “un-bossed and un-bought”.
"I hear you, and it's time for other people in the State House to hear you," Corzine yelled.
And so now we are treated to the spectacle of our Governor being used as union spokesman in an attempt to intimidate Democrat lawmakers into adopting a bloated budget and imposing more than $1.8 billion in new taxes.
When Corzine was running for Governor he stressed his business background as one reason he should be elected governor, saying he could pull the state out of its financial mire. Did anyone bother to check his references? Goldman Sachs fired Jon Corzine for a reason.
