In Case You Missed It . . .
Jim McGreevey: Short on Substance

(WEST ORANGE, OCTOBER 17) - Here is a sampling of recent press accounts regarding Jim McGreevey’s reluctance to discuss specific policy proposals:

“Untested in the Democratic Primary and ahead in the polls, [McGreevey] has said little and done less…”

“’If the campaign continues as it currently is, Jim McGreevey will have been elected governor without making a single specific promise,’ one of his associates said today. . .”

. . . “At one news conference early this year, he momentarily placed his sheet of talking points within view of a reporter. Next to nearly every item was the appropriate emotion to show: ‘sincere,’ ‘concerned,’ and so on.”
-- The New York Times, October 5

“McGreevey’s staff seems content not providing details that might limit their candidate should he become governor.”
-- The Philadelphia Inquirer, October 17, 2001

“On the sports field, it’s called running out the clock. And here in the latter stages of New Jersey’s gubernatorial race, it appears to be the Jim McGreevey campaign strategy. With less than a month to go until Election Day, the Democratic nominee has been virtually everywhere, met virtually everyone, and according to most political observers, said very little.”
-- Star-Ledger, October 14, 2001

“In late June, McGreevey asked a reporter to leave a hotel ballroom so he could speak privately with a group of African-Americans about racial profiling. Asked afterward to outline his position on the issue, McGreevey said he would not discuss the matter because he did not have his briefing binder and declined to take additional questions. In July, the day after new statistics suggested that racial profiling persisted in State Police ranks, McGreevey declined to discuss the issue. When pressed, however, he obtained his position paper on the issue, and then spent 45 minutes outlining a 10-point agenda. Most of the proposals were similar to various items contained in a federal consent order the State Police were already required to follow.”
-- Star-Ledger, October 14, 2001
