Media Speculation: President Corey Booker? Already? Seriously?

Written by William Pauwels on August 14, 2013

I couldn’t believe it! The other morning the media was talking about Corey Booker – not only for senator but for president in 2020.

The lad hadn’t even been elected yet as the New Jersey Democratic Senate nominee before liberal-leftist Bloomberg Radio was tooting Corey’s horn for president!

Of course, he’s got all of the right credentials – a black, absentee mayor of the thriving metropolis of Newark, New Jersey. The city’s a mess – and broke – and crime infested . . . so Corey has precisely the credentials we need in the White House.

I recommend this Daily Beast piece by Stuart Stevens pointing out some of Booker’s problems: How Did Cory Booker Get Himself Into Such a Dumb Money Mess?

Is there any wonder why our country is in decline – when America’s opinion leaders in the media are so lacking in judgment, perspective, and patriotism. Do these liberal-leftist journalists have any idea of what it takes to run a city government – a major organization – a state – the United States of America?  Or are they just plain stupid.

Of course, when it comes to Republicans the media are at it again – even FoxNews – talking about the divide in the Republican Party.
