Obama Admin. Says Corey Booker “Dead To Us”

On a day dedicated to preserving free speech rights, Corey Booker learned an important message: don’t you dare speak out against the Obama administration

(NY Post) It’s bye-bye, Beltway for Cory Booker.

Newark’s mayor, who was gunning for a spot in President Obama’s Cabinet, lost the chance after he shot his mouth off during a blunderingly honest TV appearance last month, sources told The Post.

“He’s dead to us,” one ranking administration official said of the prevailing feelings at the White House and Obama headquarters in Chicago. (snip)

“Cory and Barack Obama have never been besties, but that was the final nail. It’s like, ‘You’re dead and done.’ The firing squad is out,” said a Democratic source in contact with both sides. “It’s not just that he messed up, it was that he compounded it and didn’t have their back when they gave him a national stage to talk.”

But….

“Mayor Booker’s comments are behind us and we are working together to re-elect the president in November,” said Patrick Gaspard, head of the Democratic National Committee.

Other campaign insiders insist that Booker is not persona non grata, although he is in the doghouse and knows it.

“What he did was undermine a leading argument for the campaign. It was a serious distraction. Not a minor screw-up; a major screw-up,” a Democratic source said. “He is trying to figure out how to work his way back in the fold.”

Bill Clinton saw the same thing happen to him when he opened his mouth and spoke the truth. How dare he do that! There were ginned up talking points to defend!

What’s the reality? Good question. Is it simply doghouse or “dead to us”?

Speaking of free speech, Team Obama isn’t really all that fond of it. They’ve seen fit to block Jammie Wearing Fool from viewing tweets from the official Obama 2012 Twitter account.

    Biden says something that undermines Obama every time he opens his mouth – is he “dead to them” too? Or maybe they realize that he’s just not that bright and let it slide with a bemused look. Booker’s problem is that he’s just not as stupid as Biden.

    Or else the Obama folks are just racists. Just sayin’ . . .

    Booker is popular with normal people from both parties, he has done a reasonable job as mayor and has actually committed true acts of heroism (like chasing down a purse snatcher and running into a burning building to rescue people). He doesn’t NEED 0bama, and considering how Obama’s support has been a kiss of death for most democrat candidates thus far, Corey Booker is actually electorally better off without team Obama. I hope Booker realizes that. Opposing the regime will give him more ‘street cred’ with voters at this point than shilling for it will – and that’s something a lot of democrats (and some idiot Republicans) really need to become aware of.

    Screw Booker and Obama. I am happy Obama rewards loyalty just like Stalin did. Soon, his dead supporters will outnumber the living ones, and they will be mindless zombies.

    ‘You’re dead and done.’ The firing squad is out,”….Isn’t that the kind of rhetoric that led to Sarah Palin shooting Gabby Giffords??

    Michelle is crying to Barry to win the white house and you can see the fear in her eyes. Ever since she started loving America she’s been living high on the hog. She’s gone miss her own personalized Air Force One and all the maids and servants shes had in the past few years. I cannot stand that woman or her husband the fake American president.

    The big O said that the economy is fine. So we have nothing to worry about.

    that’s the best laugh I’ve had in a while, coffee snorkling up my nose.

  8. Guess the Obama Administration has given up on toning down violent symbolism in their rhetoric. http://www.politisite.com/2012/06/07/new-proof-obama-member-of-the-radial-leftist-new-party/
