Christie Sworn in as 55th NJ Governor
OK, Corzine’s out and Christie is in. But what will that truly mean for the residents of Hoboken, Hudson County and New Jersey? As you’ve seen countless times, “campaign promises” (which can often just be referred to as “marketing slogans”) can often just be dust in the wind, and voters just end up disgruntled and let down (does Charlie Brown and the football ring a bell?)
Will Hoboken benefit or suffer with Christie as Gov?
One less Democrat in office – and?
OK, the hype is over – the Massachusetts Republican Senate Candidate Scott Brown beats Democrat Martha Coakley in an “epic upset.”
If you’re a devout Democrat – do you care? Are you really that upset?
And if Republican, does this really mean that much? Other than the filibuster aspect? Or is the tide turning?
