Assemblyman and Democratic State Chairman Joe Cryan (D-Union) gave his two cents on the Republican debate between Chris Christie and Steve Lonegan tonight, linking both to former President George W. Bush.
Below is his statement.
“Both men showed tonight that they would bring more of the same George Bush policies that got us here in the first place. In their zeal to win the votes of the extreme right wing of their party, these two Republicans are out of touch with the mainstream voters of New Jersey. They offered no new ideas and no new solutions, just the same repeat loop of political sound bites that bring no hope and no new leadership to the people of New Jersey. We don't need someone that is going to run from making the right choices to protect our kids education, our healthcare, our seniors and our most vulnerable.
All I heard tonight are bad ideas. These are two men that don't have the right answers for New Jersey. These are two men that are re-circulating the same bad policies and same destructive ideas we saw from national Republicans out of Washington the past eight years.”
