The word is that Mayor Cory Booker is out to become Senator Cory Booker and run for Frank Lautenberg’s Senate seat. Of course, they forgot to tell Frank Lautenberg, who at 88 years old, is still planning to run for reelection, unless he dies first, but maybe not even then. I hear Frank Pallone is also interested in Lautenberg’s job, but he doesn’t seem to be pushing Lautenberg into retirement or the grave, so there’s that. By the way, Happy Birthday, Frank (he was born January 23, 1924).
President Barack Obama has been sworn in for his second term as the 44th President of the United States of America. The President has given many promises, but this time, he does not have to think about re-election, so he might start using his power to help the middle class as stated in his inaugural speech. This was a short inaugural speech by the president, but very effective. He has already mentioned he would work with the Republican Party as non-partisan government. Can the Republican Party members will agree with the president? I doubt it. It will be a tug of war between the President, the Republican Party and the Democratic Party as well.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie delivered his state of the state speech on Tuesday, January 8, 2013. The base of the speech was about Hurricane Sandy and the aftermath of Sandy. When it comes to being united, New Jersey has done an excellent job. Also, Christie’s administration has done an excellent job. However, the distribution of the money coming to New Jersey has been questionable.
If you overindulged at your New Year’s Eve party, don’t feel too bad. You may not have done yourself too much harm.
The medical world is in an uproar over a medical study that suggests that while they have been spending decades preaching to the world that “thin is in,” when it comes to mortality, it may be that “fat is where it’s at.”
I wish a happy New Year to you and your family. There was much drama at the end of 2012. President Barack Obama was reelected even though there was an economical strain on the U.S. The Fiscal Cliff problem hung over everyone at the end of the year, with relief coming on New Year’s Day. At least for 3 months, the fiscal cliff cloud is over our heads.
