The Bush Plague
Ah, life's simple pleasures.
Republican Doug Forrester thinks he would be preparing to become New Jersey governor, not Democrat Jon Corzine, if President Bush's popularity wasn't so low.
Forrester -- who suffered a double-digit percentage loss at the polls last Tuesday -- told the Sunday Star-Ledger of Newark that dissatisfaction with Bush made it impossible for him to overcome the Democrats' advantages in the Garden State.
"If Bush's numbers were where they were a year ago, or even six months ago, I think we would have won on Tuesday," Forrester told the newspaper during an interview at his home in Brielle.
