“It looks like the Obama Campaign has to bring Mayor Booker back from the ‘dead'”

How desperate is Team Obama to raise money for the failed president? Why they’ve even gone so far as to resurrect Newark Mayor Cory Booker from his political purgatory. If Booker had any stones he’d tell them where to stick it.

Newark Mayor Cory Booker says the fact he’s co-hosting a fundraiser for President Barack Obama tonight should prove rumors he somehow split from the president’s re-election campaign were greatly exagerrated, but the RNC says it’s just a sign the campaign is desperate after a month where Mitt Romney raised over $16 million more than the president.

“It looks like the Obama Campaign has to bring Mayor Booker back from the ‘dead’ to raise money after a terrible month where the President’s fundraising lagged and he declared to millions of unemployed Americans that ‘the private sector is doing fine,’” RNC Regional Press Secretary Ted Kwong told The Politicker.

Last month, in an appearance on Meet The Press, Mr. Booker said he found the Obama campaign’s attacks on Mr. Romney’s career with Bain Capital “nauseating.” His comments led to a report in the New York Post, which cited unnamed sources saying Mr. Booker was “dead to” the White House and the Obama campaign. Yesterday, Mr. Booker told us the fundraiser and his other activities on behalf of the campaign prove the Post report was inaccurate.

Some people just have no self-respect.

    In a world where money is king, and men are loyal to their king, one man climbed the compost heaps of history (political oblivion and Newark, NJ) to serve the throne….

    Cory Booker stars in………….Night of the Living Dems!

    Obama needs Booker far more than Booker needs Obama. If Booker really wants to advance in NJ politics, he should switch parties.
