Surrogate for Obama Denounces Anti-Romney Ad

Mayor Cory A. Booker of Newark, a prominent Democrat enlisted as a surrogate for President Obama’s campaign, sharply criticized it on Sunday for attacking Mitt Romney’s work at the private equity firm Bain Capital.

Mr. Booker, speaking on the NBC program “Meet the Press,” made his comments in response to a television advertisement the president’s campaign unveiled last week. It portrays Mr. Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, as someone who eliminated jobs for the sake of profits during his years running Bain Capital.

“I have to just say, from a very personal level, I’m not about to sit here and indict private equity,” Mr. Booker said. “To me, it’s just we’re getting to a ridiculous point in America, especially that I know I live in a state where pension funds, unions and other people are investing in companies like Bain Capital. If you look at the totality of Bain Capital’s record, they’ve done a lot to support businesses, to grow businesses. And this to me, I’m very uncomfortable with.”

    Romney had the nerve to run a business for profit! He epitomizes the very essence of evil capitalism-hard work, competition, innovation, initiative. Would you want your children growing up believing in such misguided values? They should be happy with their lot in life, living on a commune, sowing love beads and growing organic food.

  2. Did you know that capitalists fire people who can’t produce enough? That should be made illegal. No-one should ever have to be fired for not producing enough. But Economic Saboteurs should be sent to the gulag. And “Economic Saboteurs” are completely different from underproducing workers.
