    The Republican National Committee is looking to capitalize on Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s (D) criticism of the Obama campaign’s attack on Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital, urging supporters to sign a petition saying they “stand with Cory.”

    “Yesterday New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker, a surrogate spokesman for the Obama campaign, called the president's attacks on the free market ‘ridiculous,’ ” the petition reads. “That's right Mr. President, we aren't going to let you destroy free enterprise. Stand up for America. Stand up for job creators.”

    RNC launches "I Stand With Cory"

    Just watched Booker on Rachel Maddow. He says he likes the "I Stand With Cory". He says stand with him on access to education, on equal rights, on marriage equality, on women's rights, on access to health care. All things Republicans think are "terrible ideas". "I Stand with Cory" might backfire. No one wants to stand with "Bain Capital".

    Do they mention that Booker said that bringing up the Reverend Wright was 'nauseating'?

    Well, no, they didn't in the ad I heard.

    They edited his comment to make it sound like he was only nauseated by the Bain stuff.

    Of course they had to lie. It's pathological thing with the Right.

    does this mean they're going to stop saying it's "class warfare" to talk about the fact that their policies stick it to middle class and working people?

    :cool:

    “It’s nauseating to the American public,” Booker said on NBC's "Meet the Press." “Enough is enough. Stop attacking private equity. '

    Of course you do. You love the fact that Bain sucked the money, promised to employees, from their pension fund. To you it's a good idea. After all, the taxpayers paid for that.

    I hope not. I doubt it. Some companies go belly up. I believe our government should prosecute scumbags who rape pension funds, and ask the taxpayer to cover them.

    How much of their profit did Bain pay back after raping the CTS pension fund? It's a shame that the political situation is such that you wingnuts would hershey squirt yourselves if the DOJ tried to recover that money from Bain. Clearly, Bush didn't give a shit.

    You left something out there, skippy:

    “It’s nauseating to the American public,” Booker said on NBC's "Meet the Press." “Enough is enough. Stop attacking private equity. Stop attacking Jeremiah Wright.”
