I love Rachel Maddow. Never miss her show. Record it to watch it again all the time......but tonight's interview of Cory Booker really was not up to her standards.
Cory Booker blew it. He went on national TV and shook the very foundation of the Obama re-election campaign.
He verbally equated the rev Wright ads with the Obama Mitt Romney ads. There is no equivelence. The Rev Wright ads are pure assault on President Obamas' morals, the Bain Capital ads focus on Mitt Romneys' record as a Venture Capitalist.
Booker defended himself like a pure politician. He didn't say much of anything to walk back what he said.
Rachel could and should have asked some really tough questions: "Why do you equate the Romney attack ads against Obama to the Obama ads questioning Rmneys ability to create jobs ?'
How much money have you received from the Financial industry since you began your political career ?
What made you think the GOP wouldn't use your words against the President.
She basically gave him a forum to waffle out of his jam, that he created.
I will look at him much differently in the future. As far as Rachel goes, I still think she is the best analyst on TV.
I just wish she had taken a stronger line of questioning.
