That's actually pretty awesome.

I don't think there's anything I've read about this man that I haven't liked or admired.

that's where he gets you!  he's all flash and no substance!  he set that building fire just to save that woman from it.  it was all staged.  nothing he does it is real.  I wouldn't be surprised if he was an automaton build by B. HUSSAIN 0Bummer.  you see, 0Bummer is going to transfer his consciousness into Booker in 2016 and "Booker" is going to run for president, since no BODY can be president for more than 2 terms, he's going to get around it by switching bodies!

I know you're joking, but how many "hero" opportunities can one person get in a day (yes, even in Newark)?

Sometimes the personality matters more than the politics

We have a leadership problem in Washington

I really could care less at this point who goes there just as long as they are good leaders

We need balls in Washington, simply speaking

a lot of people think he's a phony and a glory hound.  He actually responds to complaints on twitter, sometimes to a fault.

He's a hell of a lot better than Sharpe James, that's for sure.

I am the average Fark Independent who votes straight GOP and believes Obama was born in Kenya.

Why do I even try?

Why don't I just fark off?

Why should I give a shiat about anything?

If you aint on a team then you are a piece of shiat who deserves nothing but hatred.

God damn I don't know what is wrong with me today.

Maybe its the fact that I am sober. I wish I wasn't broke.

when did it turn into bash cman thread?

He's been pretty constancy in his opinions that both sides are full of schmucks, sometimes he's a little right leaning, but there are far worse righty assholes on this site than him.

Meh. Gotta bash something.

Cory Booker is pretty cool when it comes to social issues - he gave a pretty awesome answer to an interview question about gay marriage a year or two ago, something about how he's a Christian as well, and for him, loving neighbors trumps hating them for who they love; and also we're in America where someone's religion doesn't make law for the rest of us.

When it comes to finance, he's about as Republican as the non-derpy Republicans. Which is to say, he's deferential to business and business' interests, but he's not a full-on "abolish the minimum wage" bootlicker.
 
2013-08-27 02:59:34 PM  
OK, OK, I'm sorry,cman. If you're having a bad day I didn't mean to pile on. I was just having some fun with you.

Great now I feel like an asshole

Good answer / good question

I look forward to having a Real Anerican tell me why it matters if he is gay...or married, for that matter.

Yeah, he's definitely on his knees for the Goldman-Sachs types. I like the guy personally and I find him refreshing, but I don't know if I can vote for him for high office. I am officially done with voting for whores for the banking lobby.

I honestly think his concern is more local.  Alot of those types are his constituents.  Not that it makes it any better.  But his deference may be more practical than philosophical, so to speak.
 
2013-08-27 03:16:20 PM  
We must elect this man president. Two black presidents in a row will freak out republicans... But if it turns out he's gay also (not that there's anything wrong with that) it will really drive them over the edge.

Since as senator or president he would be even more beholden to the banking lobby than he is as the mere mayor of Newark, that does not reassure me.

Nope.  Pandering is pandering.  And if he's beholden now, who knows what he'll be like if he advances in the future.  Obama disappoints me on this note, too.  I hope like hell he doesn't name Summers to the Fed.

I'm glad he is. That way the racism AND bigotry he will face from Republican dickheads will make the GOP look even more idiotic.

Schools? Hell no. I'd kill to do something like what Finland has done with their K-12 education system.

Social Security? I think there's a reasonable argument for investing a small portion of the trust fund (say 1-2%) into a broad-based stock fund like the S&P 500 or expanding the program through TSP-like accounts funded with additional revenues outside of the 6.2% that currently goes into the trust fund.

Someone who posts as often on Fark as you doesn't know who Cory Booker is? I do believe Shenanigans is on line 2.
