Rut roh. Looks like Former Tennessee Rep. Harold Ford Jr. may be the next Democrat to have his conscience taken hostage by the Obama administration. Agreeing with traitors like Newark Mayor Cory Booker will not be tolerated by the Left.

Here’s what Ford said on “Morning Joe” today:

“I would not have backed off the comments if I were Mayor Booker,” Ford, a Democrat, said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “The substance of his comments on ‘Meet the Press,’ I agree with the core of it. I would not have backed them out… private equity’s not a bad thing. As a matter of fact, private equity is a good thing in many, many instances.”

The Left responded quickly with shrieks of “Uncle Tom” and “Wall Street whoooooore!!!!111!!”!/sfitzgeraldva/status/204545072996417536

@KevinMaddenDC BC Ford is now working for Meryll Lynch. One corporate stooge helping another one. Are you surprised?

After leaving House, Harold Ford was employed by Merrill Lynch, Bank of America, and Morgan Stanley. No surprise he agrees with Booker!

You got your Cory Booker. Your Harold Ford Jr. and what's that black Congressman's name from Alabama who thought he could be Governor?

What, no demands that he gets back on the plantation? We’re sure those are coming. Dissent is patriotic until you dissent from the Democratic Party line.

We hope Harold Ford isn’t waiting on the heroic Cory Booker to save him. Booker’s conscience remains a hostage of the Obama campaign and rescue attempts have not been successful.

Meanwhile, Team Obama doubles down on the Bain attacks:
