TRENTON ó Senate President Stephen Sweeney went to bed furious Thursday night after reviewing the governorís line-item veto of the state budget.

He woke up Friday morning even angrier.

"This is all about him being a bully and a punk," he said in an interview Friday.

"I wanted to punch him in his head."

Sweeney had just risked his political neck to support the governorís pension and health reform, and his reward was a slap across the face. The governorís budget was a brusque rejection of every Democratic move, and Sweeney couldnít even get an audience with the governor to discuss it.

This coming from the man who authored the new health benefit law for state employees. Strong words from a guy who is going to be well cared for with a 6 figure pension and free healthcare when he chooses not to be a Jersey legislator anymore.

I just read that the prior Governor (Corzine) took 3 billion out of their pension fund to balance the budget, HOW THE HELL is he not in jail?
