  •  What other mayors have Bookers MSM profile? (6+ / 0-)

    Bloomberg and basically that's it.  Booker got fawning MSM coverage for years for shovelling snow and pulling somebody out of a house on fire.  He's not known for anything he did as mayor really.  

    If you're not talking about what billionaire hedgefund bankster Peter G. Peterson is up to you're having the wrong conversations.

      his work as Mayor has gotten a lot of attention. You have to keep in mind what Newark's city government was like before he got into office, for a proper perspective.

      So people who've never lived in Newark, and don't know what it was like before he was Mayor, I suggest ya'll kindly be quite. A lot of this Booker bashing has gotten on my nerves quite lately.

      He's going to be a typical mainstream Dem from New Jersey. He's not going to be any different IMO. I think any one the 4 would make good Senators for the state. I think people need to turn down a notch just be a certain candidate they may like, is not to be the nominee.

      Just because I like doesn't mean, I agree with him 100%, but most of his policies I agree with, and I believe he'll will evolve on other once he's elected
