Cory Booker - Another Democrat Fake Looking to Run for President

39 posts in this topic

 

I knew booker was a blanking phony years ago when he was the mayor of newark.

 

first thing I hear reported on the TV news after becoming newark mayor is he's going to be making severe budget cuts to police and fire services in that city.

 

police and fire services only determine if some people are gonna live or die, that's all.

 

so that told me right off that booker was a soulless blanker blanker.  

 

and he quickly graduated to a u.s. senator, ain't that nice?

 

you got this schtootz pegged right, darkblue.

I'm glad that we're progressive enough to have elected a Black President, but to have another one almost right on his heels is pushing the envelope a bit.

I don't quite understand your statement. We've had a lot of white presidents in a row. What difference does the race of a president make anyway?

It doesn't to ME, but I'm saying it's pushing the envelope with respect to many other voters.

has nothing to do with that. I just doan like schtootzes who imperil their own city's citizenry which is the last thing any mayor should to.

 

a terrific way to start a mayorship.

That's exactly what they said, or I should say Bobby Kennedy said to President Kennedy when he was running for president and he made a phone call to Martin Luther King's wife.

 

Martin Luther King was in jail for leading a non-violent protest. And Mrs. King was pregnant with their last child - - the one that she would hold during his funeral.

 

Jack Kennedy made the phone call anyway because it was the right thing to do.

I don't get the analogy.

if cory booker ever runs for potus, the newarkians of jersey may have some thoughts on inadequate police and fire services and how booker was a real pinwheel with the public safety in that city.

When you give in to placating what a racist voter would do or what a racist person would do-- so you give in to fear and do nothing-- that enables racism.

You don't necessarily have to be a racist to be uncomfortable with two Democratic Black Presidents in a row. Saying that you are completely comfortable with it is political correctness. Even I am not 100% comfortable with it.

Just think of all the people in the United States who are not white men and how they have to be comfortable with all those white male presidents-- is at 43 in a row?

 

Fairness and equality means just that --fairness and equality.

 

No race or sex is superior to any other.

 

And this has nothing to do with political correctness-- it has more to do with American democracy.

I just thought of a few other things - - President Kennedy is the only Roman Catholic President we've ever had.

 

Also we have never had a Jewish president and we've never had a female president.

 

We have all kinds of people in United States and they have all kinds of gifts to offer.

I understand that, but we can't move TOO fast. I am a realist. You are an idealist.

No-- I'm a realist, just like Martin Luther King was. You got to have an ideal before it becomes real.

 

 

I remember the last interview he had with Mike Wallace on CBS in 1968. Mike was telling him that black people were trying to move too fast-- don't they have enough --why don't they just wait-- even people in The New York Times think they're going too fast.

 

Martin Luther King told CBS' Mike Wallace that until black people had the same kind of freedom and equality as white people in the United States, then we are not moving fast enough. l have to keep on working for it.

 

And that's what made Martin Luther King a realist, so I'm not afraid to agree with him.

I think we should have a female President before we have another Black Male President.

You want a female-- a black female, a Jewish female, a Hispanic female, or an Asian American female?-- I don't want to guess but I'm just guessing you meant a white Anglo-Saxon Protestant female, an example might be Hillary Clinton.

 

Me, I think I would be voting right now, if I had a choice, for a male Jewish president. Do you think it's about time for that or do you think Jews are trying to move too fast in this country but wanting to be in the Oval Office.

Considering that Joe Lieberman almost became VP 17 years ago, no.

Over 30 years ago I interviewed Geraldine Ferraro when she was running for vice president - - and we all thought it was such a big deal. But nothing came of it either.

Mondale got slaughtered. Gore SHOULD have been declared the winner.

And now the next sentence will be Hillary Clinton ought to be the next president of the United States because she won the popular vote.

 

I'm the realist here because shoulds and oughts don't have any place in the vocabulary of a real realist.

Rather than posting right now, you should be at the supermarket stocking up on provisions to prepare for the coming ice storm.

That's very considerate of you to be concerned about me, but I went to the store yesterday afternoon and had to stand in line for about 20 minutes.

 

When I looked at my check- out, all I had was junk like popcorn, peanuts, potato chips, Coca Cola and ice cream. I guess I'm very well prepared.LOL

Once one starts playing the identity politics game then of course one would be "uncomfortable"  anytime there are two of the same 'types' in a row.     Identity politics 'requires' diversity.   

 

It is my belief related to politicians and bigotry that the goal was to view each person as an individual and that no one would be disqualified just because of their race, gender, religion (or lack of),  etc....       If one has this POV then they wouldn't be uncomfortable with 'in a row' black male Presidents or while females ones,  or Latino of any gender etc..,  they just need to be solid individuals.

 

But when the main focus is identity politics the focus becomes less on the qualities of the individual and more on 'it is this 'types' time'.
