It's official now. Cory Booker has been welcomed into the ranks of Democratic concern trolls by none other than Harold "Wall Street" Ford, aka Harold "Helicopter" Ford, a name he earned when he did a listening campaign about challenging Gilibrand and would fly in and out of places in his helicopter.
Former Tennessee Rep. Harold Ford Jr. said Monday that he would not have walked back New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker’s surprising comments criticizing the Obama campaign for attacking private equity.politico: Harold Ford: Cory Booker was right
“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.”
A little criticism/advice on the dismount, but Harold approves overall! The classic knife in the back of the Democratic Party on national TV. An act that Ford had evevated ot an art form. He knows quality concern trolling when he sees it.
Well, Mr. Booker, you made it to the big leagues. That Morning Joe chair is ready and waiting for you to bash Dems, to undercut the President and to promote yourself to your Wall Street buddies.
