Grrr... Has Anybody Found A FULL Transcript Of Barbara Buono's Concession Speech ???

Buono delivers blistering concession speech, attacking Garden State Democrats

In a concession speech delivered less than an hour after polls closed, State Sen. Barbara Buono went after a state Democratic party that offered her little help in her campaign.

She thanked supporters who “withstood the onslaught of betrayal from our own political party,” and she chafed at New Jersey’s “good old boy machine politics.”


<And...>

Buono endured repeated slights during her campaign from Democrats around the state. More than 50 elected Democrats publicly endorsed Christie and few others offered much support to Buono, a longtime legislator from Middlesex County.

She also received little help from the state’s Democratic political bosses, whom she railed against in her speech.

“The Democratic political bosses, some elected and some not, made a deal with this governor,” she said. “They didn’t do it for the state. They did it out of a desire to help themselves.”

In one public squabble between Buono and Democratic leaders, she eventually had to give up her pick for chairman of the state Democrats. Citing that fight, she said she “took one for the team. … I realized too late there was no team.”

1. I saw a video of the entire thing this morning.

Can't remember where. I'll try to find it. But don't hold your breath. It could be a while.

3. WOW, she sounds pissed. As an outsider I have to wonder.....


Whe DIDN'T the state Democratic party go after Christie? I've just been a casual observer but it seems that it would have done us all a lot of good had the state party done more to start slinging some mud Christie's way in preparation for his inevitable White House bid in 2016.

7. Further proof it is all just One Big Money Party.

The principles that guided the Democratic Party for so many years, those principles are, I guess, considered antiquated by the top people in the party.

8. Oh... Please... I Beseech You... Don't NOT Look At The Past... Only Look Forward...

 

That's what I'm doing... looking at what I have to look forward to.

Ironic, no?





And you are EXACTLY correct, BTW!
