Beware of Obama II - Another Incompetent and Race-Bater

A pretty-boy Al Sharpton, spewing "No Justice! No Peace!" before the Senate Committee. All show, no substance. m/r:

The mayor got wind of a damsel in distress, a mother of five named Barbara Byers, who amid a heavy snow was running out of diapers. Byers’ brother tweeted news of the crisis to Booker, who famously responded “I’m on it” and showed up at her door to replenish her supply.

For this, they can thank Barack Obama and his eight years of hollowing out that party by relying on vicious identity politics and Hard Left cultural aggression to pile up near-unanimous votes in urban areas dominated by racial and ethnic minorities and “lifestyle liberals” at the expense of “normal” Americans in suburbs and small towns. Consequently, state legislatures are becoming more and more uniformly Republican and governor’s mansions are already there. The only path to national relevance for Democrat politicians is becoming the mayor’s office in larger cities Dems dominate.
Which is where Cory Booker, who appears to be the preener-in-chief among the rag-tag roster of 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls, came from.
What Booker proves is it’s not important whether a Democrat is actually successful as a mayor on his or her ascent up the political totem pole — Booker, as mayor of Newark, couldn’t be considered a success by any rational measure. ...
