I love it when the left wing media, aka main stream media, anoints the next messiah prematurely. The MSM is all agog over Corey Booker and his sure win Senate seat over Steve Lonegan in NJ. The MSM, on September 11 rolled out a poll showing Booker had a 35 point lead over Lonegan. Then 9 days later it was shaved down to 26 point lead. Still a landslide by any definition. One day later another poll arrives on the scene erodes Booker to just a 12 point lead.
A little reminder to readers show Bookers rise to fame (outside of New Jersey) came during the last Presidential elections and was found countering the Obama party line in an interview in which Booker informed the public that the personal attacks on Bain Capital and private equity firms in general were wrong. Chris Matthews on MSLSD went ballistic to denounce him as did the DNC and the WH gang. It didn't take long for Booker to walk back his comments but not before the damage was done. Now, he is the next Obama.
The only problem with that is Booker is on record to be in total favor of Obamacare. It makes you wonder if the slippery slide downward is because of Obamacare and Bookers love affair with it and all things Obama. An "American Spectator" article on booker show -- According to the headline in the Newark Star-Ledger:
Obamacare to end health plan used by 100,000 New Jerseyans
The Senate seat race may be another Scott Brown moment for the Democrats. Here's hoping.
