    But what a pork pie he’s leaving behind in the massive Lautenberg Secaucus Rail Palace.

    Egotist Obama has already sung L’s praises.

    President Obama on Thursday praised Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg as a “steadfast champion of the people of New Jersey.”

    “Throughout his time in the Senate, Frank has fought tirelessly for workers, veterans, members of our military and their families, and immigrants, and he continues to make extraordinary contributions to our nation’s safety, and the health and welfare of our citizens,” the president said in a statement following Lautenberg’s announcement that he will not seek reelection.

    “His service in World War II is a testament to his character and deep commitment to public service,” Obama said. “I look forward to working with Frank on critical issues before us these next two years, and Michelle and I wish him and Bonnie all the best.”

    Two days ago he “wasn’t sure.” I was hoping he’d run again. These antiques are mucho entertaining.

    It is a prerequisite for an elected official to be corrupt. No need to single out an drooling old corrupt fool.

    Remember how the corrupt NJ Supreme CT resurrected him? Torrecelli (corrupt) dropped out after the deadline and Dems has no legal candidate.

    Not to worry, NJ Supreme CT rewrote the law on the fly and the cadaver won.

    • Indeed I do – the New Jersey judiciary proved as corrupt as everyone else down there. Here in Connecticut we seem to make do with mere incompetents and petty crooks but the Garden State grows ‘em large.

    And don’t forget McGreavey, another corrupt NJ Dem who resigned.
