All Beloved Politicians Backtrack, Including Corey Booker

“It’s nauseating to the American public,” Booker said on the Meet the Press on Sunday, regarding Obama’s negative campaign strategies. “Enough is enough. Stop attacking private equity.”

Whoops, I forgot I’m a Democrat and have a base that hates Mitt Romney.  Backpedddle backpeddle!

I went back to the transcript. No one on the panel mentions Booker’s comments. But they quickly became a firestorm. It’s a reminder how different speeches and interviews and comments can look when viewed in context, as opposed to after they’ve been ripped from wherever they originated, spun into a separate narrative, and made into their own story.
