quote of the day

quote of the day

“Clearly there’s some resemblance with Theodore Roosevelt. That direct confrontational style of leadership.” - historian Doris Hearns Goodwin, referring to Gov. Chris Christie.

- The Times of Trenton

quote of the day

"[Lyndon] Johnson understood that so far as a man was a political animal (and therefore not searching for some private truth which might be independent of politics) he was then, if deprived of his properties, close to being a dead man." - Norman Mailer

- Miami and the Siege of Chicago

quote of the day

"As long as people believe in absurdities they will continue to commit atrocities."

- Voltaire

quote of the day

"The Republican Governors Association raised $130,000 from tobacco companies during Christie’s stint as the group’s chairman, according to the most recent filings in June. The veto allows Christie to keep the peace with tobacco companies — and may very well prevent them from investing heavily in a presidential campaign for U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, whose operatives could use the cash to finance attack ads against Christie in a tight primary contest." - columnist Charles Stile

- The Bergen Record

quote of the day

“I learned a lot about New Jersey. I learned about what it’s like to be on a back road in Salem County at 1 a.m. when you have to get up for a 6 a.m. breakfast in Bergen County. I learned to sleep in the car. I learned that New Jersey is too small for airplane travel, and simultaneously a place where you might need three and half to four hours to get somewhere.” - State Senator Gerald Cardinale (R-39), of his ill-starred run for governor in the 1980s

quote of the day

"What I tell people all the time when I talk about Camden is that unlike other places in our state, this is a place that truly comes together to welcome partnership, to welcome change that we all know is necessary, because in this city the children really are placed first. I hope you all appreciate what you have, because it's not present everywhere in New Jersey, and it's certainly not present everywhere in the country." - Gov. Chris Christie

quote of the day

"I don't view this in terms of political -- this is people's livelihood, careers. And there's no easy solution." - state Sen. Jim Whelan (D-2), Atlantic City

quote of the day

I understand that it means something to the politicos who see the West New York school board election as a struggle for eventual control of Town Hall. Yes, there some Don Quixote types in Hudson County who believe they have a shot at unseating an incumbent or some Democratic Party-backed candidate. The truth is that we’re already looking forward to the next June primary. We want to know who is running for county executive, besides the present one, Tom DeGise." - columnist Agustin Torres
