Big Bain Backfire': Romney campaign uses Booker's slam of Obama in new ad (VIDEO)

By Dylan Stableford
May 21, 2012

The Mitt Romney campaign didn't waste any time to latch onto Newark Mayor Cory Booker's criticism of the Obama campaign's "nauseating" attack on Romney's Bain Capital record.

A day after Booker's controversial interview on "Meet The Press," the Romney campaign released an ad--"B ig Bain Backfire"--using the Democratic mayor's comments slamming Obama.

"Have you had enough of President Obama's attacks on free enterprise?" a voiceover in the minute-long ad says. "His own key supporters have."

"I have to just say from a very personal level, I'm not about to sit here and indict private equity," Booker said on Sunday's "Meet The Press."

The ad also uses similar comments from former Democratic Congressman Harold Ford Jr. on Monday's "Morning Joe" to rebut the Obama campaign's attack on Romney.

"Private equity is not a bad thing," Ford said. "As a matter of fact, private equity is a good thing in many, many instances."

Steven Rattner, the Obama administration's former "car czar," also gets a cameo.

"I don't think there is anything Bain Capital did that they need to be embarrassed about," Rattner said.

The ad closes with Booker's headline-making criticism of Obama's attack on Bain: "It's nauseating to the American public. Enough is enough.

"With no record to run on," the Romney ad's description concludes, "it is no surprise that the Obama campaign has resorted to misleading attacks that have been disavowed by its own supporters."

Newark Mayor Cory Booker slams Obama campaign attack on Romney’s work for Bain Capital

By Greg Miller,

Mayor Cory Booker of Newark, a close ally of President Obama in the upcoming election, slammed the president’s campaign Sunday for ads attacking Mitt Romney’s work for the private-equity firm Bain Capital.

Booker, who noted that many of his constituents are investors in or employees of New York-based financial firms, said it was wrong for the Obama campaign to portray the expected Republican nominee as someone who pursued profits by slashing jobs while serving as Bain’s chief executive. "Nauseating" in Fact.

“If you look at the totality of Bain Capital’s record, they’ve done a lot to support businesses, to grow businesses,” Booker said during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”“And this, to me, I’m very uncomfortable with.”

Booker’s remarks earlier Sunday were aimed at a television advertisement introduced by the Obama campaign last week that sharply criticized Romney’s record at Bain — a line of attack seen as central in an election whose outcome is expected to be shaped by voters’ economic concerns.

Booker’s criticism of the advertisement could help Romney’s campaign as it seeks to fend off attacks related to his record at a firm that held investments in a variety of industries.

“I have to just say, from a very personal level, I’m not about to sit here and indict private equity,” Booker said.“I live in a state where pension funds, unions and other people are investing in companies like Bain Capital.”

I can't imagine a NJ politician that can top Gov. Chrisite's junk food consumption. This guy must be bigger that Jabba The Hut.

Cory Booker: "Cory Booker is the Mayor of Newark, New Jersey. He was named after singer Cory Hart and Booker T Washington. Cory Booker rose to fame as the character Arnold Jones on the 70s television series "Different Strokes". Booker rescued a woman from a burning home earlier this year on live TV. He was chastised by the Obama campaign in August for supporting Mitt Romney and Bain Capital. Booker leaves behind a wife and 7 children."

If Obama loses Booker is the future of the Dem party.

A moderate Dem party.

If Obama wins the Dem party will set itself back 4 generations.

Obama doesn't know Economics #101 and isn't capable of learning such.
