Pass the popcorn.
The Democrat-media complex is in full damage control after Newark Mayor Cory Booker attacked the Obama campaign for their nauseating attacks on Bain Capital.
Chris Matthews went off on Booker last night.
“Booker Heard Everything Obama Said & Declared: “It’s Not True!” ”
And, Booker went on MSNBC last night to apologize again for straying from the Obama plantation on Sunday.
For the second day, Newark Mayor Cory Booker scrambled to clarify his comments criticizing the Obama campaign’s assault on Mitt Romney’s job creation record at Bain Capital after he sent the Obama administration into full blown damage-control while the GOP continued to take full advantage of the New Jersey mayor’s blunder on “Meet the Press.”
Booker called Team Obama’s Bain attack “nauseating” political discourse with which Booker has become “very uncomfortable,” on CBS’ “Meet the Press” on Sunday.
The GOP quickly responded by sending out an email today to supporters reading, “Do you know what Obama does with people who stand up for job creators? He silences them. That’s right. By Sunday evening the Obama campaign had pressured Booker into taking back his support of the free market … Don’t let the White House silence free enterprise! If you agree, then please sign our petition: I STAND WITH CORY BOOKER” And if you missed the email, the landing page for www.GOP.com currently reads: ‘I stand with Cory.'”
Booker responded to the GOP’s email on MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show” on Monday night.
“That slogan had me and my entire staff really fit to be tied,” he said. “Here they are plucking sound bites out of [the ‘Meet The Press’] interview to manipulate them in a cynical manner, to use them for their own purposes … I’m very upset that I’m being used by the GOP this way.”
Booker told Maddow that he doesn’t plan to stay quiet.
Good golly he screwed up.
If the Democrat-media complex can’t focus on Mitt they’ll have to look at Obama’s devastating record. No wonder they’re so panicked.
