    Obama Official On Cory Booker: ‘He’s Dead To Us’

    Obama Official On Cory Booker: ‘He’s Dead To Us’


    “I have to just say from a very personal level, I’m not about to sit here and indict private equity,” said Booker. “If you look at the totality of Bain Capital’s record, they’ve done a lot to support businesses.”


    Obviously, Obama’s camp wasn’t please. Here is what happened next:


    Almost immediately, top Obama aides were speed-dialing Booker, insisting he backpedal from his comments before returning to the Garden State. But the mayor wouldn’t do that.


    Booker further enraged them by waiting until that night to post an online video that was neither cleared by the campaign nor acceptable to Obama strategists.
    And then Booker did it again. The next night, he went on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show to talk about his earlier comments without discussing it with the campaign or working out a cohesive message with Obama’s team. During that appearance, Booker threw even more fuel on the fire when he made it look as if he had been ordered to retract his comments because he decided to “clarify” them after “he did talk with campaign officials.”

    this is one of the reasons I have great respect for Mayor Booker, He is not afraid to speak his mind, intelligently, and stand his ground. I thought he put his foot in his mouth a bit over the prudential center/devils issue, and lost. but in general he's a highly respectable man. Kudos to him.


    also shame on the Obama campaign...

    Frankly, I lost a lot of respect for him after the mop up. He clearly meant what he said and instead sticking by that, he back pedaled due to WH pressure. I would have had much more respect for him he just said "well, on this area, I disagree with the WH and the Campaign."
