Got H8? Left hurls slurs, racist epithets at Cory Booker for being honest about Bain attacks; Update: Obama edits Booker’s follow-up vid

As Twitchy reported earlier Cory Booker, Democrat Mayor of Newark, New Jersey, spoke the truth about Team Obama’s attacks on Mitt Romney and Bain. He called them “crap” and rightly so. The Left isn’t pleased; truth is even harder than math.

Remember when @CoryBooker was the adored, golden child of Democratic politics, the future. You should. He was until just about 2 hours ago.

The always wrong Joan Walsh also weighs in.

Really disappointed that @corybooker decided it was more important to court Wall Street than tell the truth about the economy on #MTP

— Joan Walsh (@joanwalsh) May 20, 2012

No, Joan. He did tell the truth. We know; honesty is hard.

.@CoryBooker puts his Wall St. donations ahead of POTUS. Way to destroy your good name. Hope Wall St. ponies up for you cause I never will.

What's 'nauseating' @CoryBooker is YOUR enabling #KOCHSTERS (aka GOP) to attack our President Obama. That's NAUSEATING.

— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) May 20, 2012

@CoryBooker Dude Obama has been disrespected more than any Prez in history, he fights back and you throw him under the bus! WTF? #Shame

— Farrell McManus (@farrellmcmanus) May 20, 2012

Someone needs to check @corybooker 's donors list. He must be getting shit load from companies like Bain to say something so stupid.

@CoryBooker @dawn9476 @Bain Only Cory Booker can fix this mess that Cory Booker made! Your name is MUD today among the Dem/Obama twitteratti

— Maggy (@Maggyw519) May 20, 2012

Oh, well. The Twitterati.

The tolerant Left falls back on slurs and name-calling.

I dont give a fuck who Booker thinks he is, he is NOT bigger than the POTUS. Stand united with Obama or get the fuck outta the way.

NEWSFLASH: Dear Mr @CoryBooker I am sorry if I implied you were a dickhead. If the focus is "nice", we'll be up shit creek with Mitt. #win

— FedUp_Mom (@Fedup_Mom) May 20, 2012

— Rita A (@ritaag) May 20, 2012

@CoryBooker you need a big cup of "shut the fuck up!" #TriangulatingLiar

— Bob Brigham (@BobBrigham) May 20, 2012

These are words you won't hear me say too often: Cory Booker, shut the fuck up.

— HumanityCritic (@HumanityCritic) May 20, 2012

@sweetbay @corybooker AMEN! David Gregory is a Republican. When will Dems learn? As for Booker, he's an idiot and a traitor.

— Dita Knights (@DitaKnights) May 20, 2012

Fucking Judas Iscariot. Fuck @corybooker He's made a deal. Get Romney in the WH and you get the NJ Gov mansion. He's their Black attack dog.

— itgurl (@itgurl_29) May 20, 2012!/NeverAgainRs/status/204265628104798208

Fuck @corybooker He's using his role as an Obama surrogate, not 2 help POTUS get reelected, but 2 get himself into the Gov mansion.

— itgurl (@itgurl_29) May 20, 2012

RT @Smartypants32: So U disagree w/ 1 thing cory booker said & now he's a "traitor" & "house n****r"? Come of folks, ths is wht wingnuts do

@PragObots @corybooker Booker did this? U mean Booker is just another house nigger? #BookerWestSmileyCainWestHouseNiggers

— N.O.T.O.R.I.O.U.S.™ (@MrMilitantNegro) May 20, 2012

@MWJ1231 @corybooker Mr. Booker is nauseating. he is just another hating jealous house nigger begging for table scraps.

— N.O.T.O.R.I.O.U.S.™ (@MrMilitantNegro) May 20, 2012


Thinking for oneself is not allowed. Cory Booker was forced to “clarify” his comments, due to the backlash. Unlike those attacking him, he shows class.

I will fight hard for Obama to win. But just as his 08 campaign did, I believe we must elevate & not denigrate. This is the Obama I know

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) May 20, 2012

But we as "the electorate" must also bear responsibility for changing the tone of politics as usual. Not just root harder for our side

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) May 20, 2012

Yes I'm sick to my stomach of the politics of destruction. We now have a fed gov that can't come together & solve our nation's problems

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) May 20, 2012

I'll always prioritize my nation over a political party. & right now crass divisive partisan politics is not serving the citizens of my city

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) May 20, 2012

So I'll clarify my comments on MTP. Yes, Obama must be re-elected. But we as a Nation owe it to him & ourselves 2 reject politics as usual

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) May 20, 2012

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." MLK

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) May 20, 2012

“Tolerance” on display yet again. New tone!

Update: Booker taped a nearly 4-minute YouTube video of his clarification.

The Obama campaign heavily edits Cory Booker's follow-up to this morning's remarks:

— jimgeraghty (@jimgeraghty) May 21, 2012


But Obama’s heavy-handed editors chopped it down to a half-minute endorsement:

Here's video of @CoryBooker saying @MittRomney is not being honest about his time in private sector

— Ben LaBolt (@BenLaBolt) May 21, 2012

Even Politico notes the shenanigans:

What gets lost in the edit is the nuance of Booker’s argument. Watching the 35-second video, you would believe that Booker was flip-flopping from his comments on Meet The Press and going on an all-out assault on Romney. In the four-minute video, Booker stands by his comments — including “nauseating” — and explains that while he does think Romney’s record is fair game, he remains “furstrated” by the Obama campaign’s negative attacks.

In other words, the 35-second video is a reverse from the original argument. The four-minute video is an extenstion of the original argument.

Asked for his response to the ad, RNC spokesman Tim Miller, who has been attacking the ad on Twitter, emailed:

It’s clear this video was orchestrated by the Obama campaign, and as long as he is President any defense of the free market/private sector by members of his party must be silenced and apologized for.


Hostage tape MT @chrisdonovannbc: Booker posts video after saw "so much feedback" to his comments on #MTP

— Tim Miller (@Timodc) May 20, 2012

If you listen closely to the Cory Booker video he's tapping "HELP ME" in morse code underneath the desk
