Cory Booker defends Mitt Romney against unhinged Left

First, Newark Mayor Cory Booker called Barack Obama’s attacks on Bain Capital “crap.” Then he mocked Nanny Bloomberg’s ban on large sodas.

Now he’s pushing back against unhinged Twitter attacks on Mitt Romney.

I hear u. But b careful. We can disagree with Romney & win the election without demonizing him. RT @golfndadblogger romney is an evil person

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) June 16, 2012

Never let a person twist you into something you are not. Match lies with truth, darkness with light, hate with love RT @golfndadblogger

& u want 2 defend Christian Church's past sins? Come on/Lets leave his faith out of it RT @adept2u: Till 78 his church thought u were demons

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) June 16, 2012

Sorry u think I was defending him. I thought I was defending civility & honorable conduct RT @sandeepbahl Don't defend romney. He isn't fair

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) June 16, 2012

The Left’s beacons of civility have lashed out at conservatives with language like “mashed-up bag of meat,” ”asshole,” and “brainwashed bible thumper.” Mayor Booker, by contrast, shows it is possible to disagree with conservatives without demonizing them.

Conservatives praised the mayor’s tweets and invited him to “come into the light.”

@CoryBooker Civility among the hard left is extremely rare and unwelcome. I respect you for trying to be though.

Dear Mayor @CoryBooker please join the @GOP we allow people to speak #truth without condemning them. You did nothing wrong ! @sandeepbahl

— Marc T Grove (@mtgrove) June 16, 2012

The vitriolic Left responded by defending incivility and bashing Booker and Mormonism.

@CoryBooker @TracyBuffer Hey Cory, R U going to go on MTP again and undermine PBO again?

@CoryBooker @golfndadblogger Thy set the rules demonizing Obama & pledging to see him fail. Diebold fixed yet? Voter reg restored? Wisconsin

Mayor Booker didn’t address his liberal trolls. Instead, he explained his objections to Romney’s policy positions.

Yes, scary consequences. RT @peterkohan Agreed, but his policies have horrendous consequences – must be stated plainly

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) June 16, 2012

I could give u many but here are 5 RT @forever_banned: Which policys SPECIFICALLY that #romney promotes are injurious to the good of the US

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) June 16, 2012

Giving up on auto industry/not supporting expansion of student loans/denying gay's equal rights/Tax policy that increases debt/Cutting EITC

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) June 16, 2012

Even ideas past Repubs supported from the EITC to Enterprise Zones (Jack Kemp), to infrastructure investment MR now rejects. @forever_banned

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) June 16, 2012

Tell the truth, Bush is. 2 wars on a credit card, as well as prescription drug plan RT @jason_howerton Obama is undisputed champ of debt.

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) June 16, 2012

We have such short memories. Clinton was the pres that gave us balanced budgets. Bush destroyed that in a spending spree @jason_howerton

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) June 16, 2012

Bush: The only time in the history of the US we went to war AND gave people tax cuts, asking sacrifice only from soldier's & their families

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) June 16, 2012

Sorry, Obama isn't champion of debt. He's champion of trying 2 save an economy that was driven to its knees by irresponsible economic policy

— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) June 16, 2012

Okay, so Mayor Booker isn’t quite ready to come into the light. But kudos to the mayor for speaking out against the demonization of political opponents.

Our nation is elevated by civility & when we resist the impulse 2 demean each other, such tactics may win elections but we lose so much more
