Buono to Obama: “Hello Mr. President, I’m Barbara Buono”

Buono Dawn Quixote2Today was another disastrous day for Barbara ‘Dawn Quixote’ Buono.

The presumptive Democratic gubernatorial nominee’s campaign announced this morning that the candidate would have a private meeting with President Obama in Asbury Park.  They later retracted the statement when news broke that Buono was one of about thirty people to meet the president in Asbury Park’s Convention Hall prior to Obama delivering his public remarks.

When Obama met Buono, he did not know who she was, according to a source who was in the room.  “Barbara had to introduce herself to the president,” the source told MMM.

“A senior admin official says that Barbara Buono, a Democrat running for NJ  governor, was part of a group of approximately 30 state and local officials who met briefly with Obama before his speech in Asbury Park today. There were both  Democrats and Republicans among the state/local electeds present. There was a  photo line but no separate meeting,” according to a pool report from Obama’s  trip.

    I wonder if she told Obama that Christie was spending too much time on Hurricane Sandy.

    I was part of a presidential advanced staff team for Bush, Sr.

    These photo ops are par for the course, and they are literally a walk-up, a greeting, and handshake, which takes all of 3-5 seconds. There is no stopping to pose for a picture. If there is, it is a mere 1 second pause. The President would know the name of just about everybody in that line.

    For The President not to even know Barbara tells you she was never on his radar, ever. Nor will she ever be. This President is said to have an extraordinary memory of faces, and for Barbara to introduce herself must have been very humbling.

    NJ and VA are the only states in the country electing a governor this year; apparently only one matters to the President.

    Not that Barbara really ever has a shot, but at least she could make an honest effort. Her staff couldn’t even have the appropriate introduction prepared?

    Shameful that any staffer would put their name to her campaign.

    PS: Lou Greenwald is bragging he was with the President today; he spent the same amount of time with him as Barbara. At least the President can address Lou by his first name.

    A source told me you own 100.000.000 in back taxes and have 10 wife and may go to jail 4 50 years.

  8. Art Gallagher said at 10:08 pm on May 28th, 2013:

    That’s silly, Bill. If I had 10 wives, I’d never live another 50 years.

    My story is true.

    Fact: a 2% property tax cap that even Dems support.

    Fact: $1.3 billion in High Ed funding that has gone to improve facilities (etc) for over 350,000 kids

    Fact: we have reached the highest levels of Ed funding ever
