Dr. Boyce: Why I am Confused by Cory Booker
by Dr. Boyce Watkins, KultureKritic.com
Cory Booker is an outstanding politician and an even more amazing human being. The man proclaimed to be “Baby Obama” has more friends than I’ll ever have and is one of the most respected and creative local politicians in America. In fact, if I were a light-skinned, bald guy who wanted to be just like Barack, I’d act like Cory Booker.
The world was buzzing after Booker made a really interesting snafu on “Meet the Press” (you might have heard about it). During a conversation about Bain Capital, the company that might become the bane of Mitt Romney’s existence (pun intended), Booker was asked about the ObamaAdministration’s plan to attack Romney on his connection with Bain, one of the many Wall Street firms that ripped the heart out of the American economy.
Booker’s reaction was not the one to be expected of “Baby Obama,” the man who has built quite an impressive career by being a good Democratic foot soldier. Booker said that Obama’s attacks on Bain capital were “nauseating,” which led Obama-ite Chris Matthews to refer to Booker’s words as an “act of sabotage” and a “betrayal” of President Obama. Booker forgot to read the manual that in the 2012 hierarchy of light-skinned negro political power, he is an Indian, not a chief. He might have all the power in the world in New Jersey, but when a mandate comes from King Obama, all minions are expected to comply.
