|President Barack Obama and Newark mayor Cory Booker. Booker gave the Republicans the new talking point of the week. Booker is a strong ally to the president. His words in favor of Bain Capital has became a new distraction.|
He was dubbed the "superhero" of New Jersey after he help aid a neighbor out of a burning home and shoveled snow during the winter.
A strong ally of President Barack Obama, one may think Cory Booker's presence is helpful to the reelection campaign.
Alas, its not.
On the Meet The Press, Booker laid out the grenade and it ricochet into the Obama Campaign headquarters.
Booker went onto the program with David Gregory to defend the president's record on the economy but took to the defense of Bain Capital, the business founded by the perennial candidate for president, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

The conservatives are now seething with Booker's comments. They are now looking to hammer the president's argument of Bain Capital.
Republicans lawmakers were crowing about the Solyndra failures and placing the blame solely on President Barack Obama's doorstep. The Republicans are defending failed companies that Bain Capital invested in. They believe that the president's attacks on Bain Capital are unfair and they want to use Booker's comments as defense of the investment firm.
Looking into Wikipedia, and I seen that Bain Capital has invested in companies that are familiar with the general public.
Companies such as Staples, Burger King, The Weather Channel, Dunkin Donuts and Guitar Center are sponsored by Bain Capital.
