Oh, good. Another vacuous gasbag with delusions of leadership has hopped into the Democrat’s 2020 Clown Car.
Just what we need.
Yesterday Spartacus Booker declared that he is a candidate for President.
Unlike vapid lightweights Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Kirsten Gillibrand, this preening, vacuous gasbag actually has executive experience.
He served as the Mayor of the Murder Capital of New Jersey.
Okay. I didn’t say he has experience as a successful chief executive.
As Daniel Greenfield pointed out in his column “The Mayors of the Worst Cities in America Are Running for President:”
Like Tallahassee and South Bend, Newark is one of the country’s murder capitals. And it’s been listedas the most violent city in its respective state. It’s also one of the worst cities in the country to live in.
That’s why the majority of people who work in Newark actually live away from the troubled city.
Like South Bend and Tallahassee, around 1 in 4 Newark residents live in poverty. A report this year listed Newark as the 3rd neediest city in America.
A year after Booker jumped ship to become a senator, a report found that 18% of children in Newark were living in “extreme poverty”.
The adult literacy rate in Newark is 52% making it the citywith the fifth highest illiteracy rate in America.
How does the mayor of a city with the 5th highest illiteracy rate and the 3rd neediest residents actually aspire to higher office with that miserable track record of failure and human wreckage?
Mayor Booker based his claim of having turned Newark around on all the outside money he brought in. Where all that money went is an intriguing question that will gain urgency if he becomes the nominee.
In a typical viral stunt, Booker had appeared with Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg and Governor Chris Christie on Oprah where the dot com billionaire announced that he was donating $100 million to Newark’s public schools. That gift was supposed to be matched by another $200 million in donations.
Where did all that money go?
Union fat cats got fatter. The Foundation for Newark’s Future squandered the money. And Booker was one of the five trustees of the Foundation.
You’d think a politician with such a miserable track record would avoid running for higher office.
Especially a vacuous gasbag like Cory Booker.
But, remember folks. For Democrats, failure is a resume-enhancer.
I watched Cory’s first campaign ad.
It’s stuffed full of well-meaning do-goodism as an earnest-voiced Booker tries his best Barack Obama impersonation.
It is so over-sentimental and cloying, even a non-diabetic is at risk of coma.
Here’s the video. Click PLAY at your own risk.
Booker has the depth of a rain puddle and the intellectual breadth of a block of government cheese.
In other words, he’s just another lightweight Democrat Senator with delusions of grandeur.
On the plus side, with all the Democrat Senators elbowing their way into the 2020 Clown Car, American voters will have a great opportunity to see just how vapid, unserious and trivial Democrat members of the “world’s most deliberative body” really are.
