It’s bye-bye, Beltway for Cory Booker.
Newark’s mayor, who was gunning for a spot in President Obama’s Cabinet, lost the chance after he shot his mouth off during a blunderingly honest TV appearance last month, sources told The Post.
“He’s dead to us,” one ranking administration official said of the prevailing feelings at the White House and Obama headquarters in Chicago. . . . . . .
Thinking highly of Booker, Obama’s campaign asked him to appear on “Meet the Press” on May 20 to act as a mouthpiece, but he proceeded to eviscerate one of the president’s key campaign themes.
Booker told a national TV audience the president’s attacks on Mitt Romney’s record at private-equity firm Bain Capital were “nauseating” and made him “very uncomfortable.”
Now, a Clinton Liberal’s response and the rest of the story:
Mayor Cory Booker, Governor's Ed Rendell Cuomo, Lanny Davis, Bill Clinton, most of the Wall Street Progressive crowd, Mort Zuckerburg, Donald Trump (trust me, he ain't no Republican conservative), the Democrat mayors of San Diego and San Jose California, Senator Evan Bayh, Diane Feinstein and a growing number of Leftist journalists -- all are waking up to the fact that their party is in big election year trouble.
