13 movie titles that NJ 101.5 listeners think best describe a Phil Murphy presidency (Opinion)
Now that Phil Murphy will soon conclude his two terms as governor of New Jersey, what's next? Could a presidential run be in order? It certainly looks that way.
"A $2 million ad blitz is underway touting Murphy's accomplishments and promoting his progressive agenda. The ads are being paid for by the group Stronger Fairer Forward. The group is chaired by Murphy's wife, Tammy, and run by former aide Dan Bryan," Eric Scott writes on NJ1015.com,
So what is "Stronger Fairer Forward," Eric?
"Stronger Fairer Forward is one of two groups launched in February with the goal of raising Murphy's profile. One is a political action committee and the other is a registered non-profit. The groups do not have to report where their funding comes from."
Suppose you have lived in New Jersey for the past eight years and seen the work this governor has done, between the way he handled COVID and all the businesses that were forced to close, not to mention the increase in taxes and endless executive orders giving him absolute power to run the state. Is this what you would want for your country?
I asked my listeners and social media followers if they could come up with movie titles that would best describe either a Phil Murphy presidential run or presidency and here's what they came up with. I'm guessing the first guess would cover a possible reelection.
