This will be a quick post. NJ's unemployment rate inched up to 9.3% and remains at a 32 year high. Sure the rate has slowed. However, for Governor I know How To Lie With Statistics Jon Corzine to send out an email promoting 13K new private sector jobs in NJ is a low point in politics. Oh and to back up his crap he talked about how our unemployment is lower than the national average.
Look Corzine, this is a lie and you know it. You can try and spin these numbers to suit your political purposes but to the workers in NJ we see and feel the unemployment. I know every email you try and tie Christie to President Bush and Karl Rove but they wouldn't stoop to this level of lies with statistics.
Jon Corzine you suck (really you do, but I put that in there for SEO reasons). You didn't do what you promised the last time you ran. You need to be dumped. I only hope the Christie campaign is average enough to take you out. BTW - here's a link to the response from Jennifer Beck that points out your obvious flaws in your announcement. Your crappy email is copied below.
By now, you've probably seen the Gun Lobby-sponsored Republican advertising against me. You know, the ones that say, "watch what he does, not what he says."
Well, the new numbers on job creation in New Jersey came out today, so, for a change of pace, let's listen to the Republicans and take a close look at what my administration has done about creating jobs in New Jersey:
- 13,000 private sector jobs were added last month because of our business-friendly policies.
- At the same time, our continued focus on increasing efficiency in government led to a reduction in 7,000 public sector jobs.
- Our state-wide unemployment rate continues to remain below the national average.
Not even Karl Rove can spin that success away.
Since the earliest days of this national crisis, I've made New Jersey's economy my first, second, and third priority. I was determined to ensure that our state is well-positioned to take advantage when this global economic recession turns around, and we are beginning to see the effects.
We're seeing these results because we put New Jersey's share of the federal stimulus right to work into transportation and infrastructure projects, passed programs like the Invest New Jersey initiative which offers a $3000 grant to small-business for every new job created, and signed a second economic stimulus package two weeks ago to ensure that we keep New Jersey's recovery going strong.
Make no mistake, we still have a long way to go and there is much work still to be done, but my administration's recovery initiatives are fostering job creation, while President Obama's recovery program is helping to restore economic confidence.
Together, we're making real progress for New Jersey.
