Via The North Jersey Advance:
U.S. Sen. Cory Booker just visited 24 — count ’em, 24 — states stumping for Democrats in the midterm elections. He contributed $686,000 to House and Senate candidates across the nation. And along the way, New Jersey’s dynamic Democrat stopped in all those early presidential primary states, plus a few that look to be big battlegrounds.
A dry run for a potential 2020 bid? Even Booker wouldn’t quarrel with that. “I will consider running for president,” Booker told NJ Advance Media. “That’s something that I will do. There’s people in New Jersey who are talking to me about it, across the country that are talking to me about it, so I will consider that.
I say go for it Cory. If people think Beto should run why not Cory? He has more experience and hes not that hard on the eyes. Like France and Canada it would be nice to have a “fuckable” President.
Bruce! Bruce! Bruce! Bruce! Bruce! Bruce! Bruce! Bruce! Bruce! Bruce!
“The republic is under siege by a moron, basically. The whole thing is tragic. Without overstating it, it’s a tragedy for our democracy. When you start talking about elections being rigged, you’re pushing people beyond democratic governance. And it’s a very, very dangerous thing to do. Once you let those genies out of the bottle, they don’t go back in so easy, if they go back in at all. The ideas he’s moving to the mainstream are all very dangerous ideas – white nationalism and the alt-right movement. The outrageous things that he’s done – not immediately disavowing David Duke? These are things that are obviously beyond the pale for any previous political candidate. It would sink your candidacy immediately.
“I believe that there’s a price being paid for not addressing the real cost of the deindustrialization and globalization that has occurred in the United States for the past 35, 40 years, and how it’s deeply affected people’s lives and deeply hurt people to where they want someone who says they have a solution. And Trump’s thing is simple answers to very complex problems. Fallacious answers to very complex problems. And that can be very appealing.” – Bruce Springsteen, speaking to Rolling Stone.
Proud of Bruce. He really nailed it.
