Sen. Buono Criticizes Ryan Pick

Senator says New Jersey will support President Obama in November election

Sen. Barbara Buono, D-Middlesex, made the following statement following the introduction of U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan as the Republican Vice Presidential nominee.

In picking Paul Ryan, the Romney campaign is doubling down on the failed Republican fiscal policies of the past that lead to our current economic woes.

Failed policies that would provide massive tax cuts to the rich while raising taxes on the middle class and gutting Medicare, Pell grants and clean energy investments. If Governor Christie had delusions of delivering New Jersey for his buddy Mitt Romney, those hopes have been completely decimated by the addition of Paul Ryan to the Republican ticket. New Jerseyans know that President Obama is their best choice come Election Day.

....."New Jerseyans know that President Obama is their best choice come Election Day." ....really? Well that's IT then!! I guess she knows best ...being that ...well, she's part of the government. And as we all know, it's pretty much impossible for us "common folk" to make decisions for ourselves without the government there to coach us along. Heck...we can't even be successful business owners without the all knowing government standing there and making it happen.

Is Ms. Buono a US Senator all of a sudden? There's a mistake in her signature line. In any event, thanks for the advice, Ms. Buono. Those of us New Jerseyans who can think for ourselves understand that the current President has failed us in every regard, both domestically and in the foreign theater. In addition, he has taxed us and our children into having our credit downgraded for the first time in history, without his Democrat Senate (Ms. Buono's supposed colleagues) even being able to pass a budget. What a laughable remark by Ms. Buono. Middlesex must be so proud of her being able to read Democrat talking points off of a memo. Vote Romney/Ryan in 2012 and against Puliti and Kownacki in 2013.

Buono is a hypocrite and a condescending politician who's been on the public teat for entirely too many years. Lost touch with reality, Ms. Buono? I think so.

Buono is lost. Romney/Ryan has a much better chance of succeeding than the failure that is ongoing from Obama. Ryan solidfies the choice. Here's a man who's fiscally sound, this proves to the entire country that Romney will focus on getting us back on track. Obama will go down as one of the worst presidents in history. I pray NJ gets it, and Romney wins this state... I have faith in my neighbors

Wow..Senator Buono, a NJ Democrat not in favor of Romneys VP pick. Is this news ? Show me a Democrat, both inside or outside NJ that is supporting Romney or Ryan publicly. Also, show me a Republican who is supporting OBama publicly.

Hey Patch! Why not provide equal time w/comments from a Middlesex County Republican?
