Key Democrat Leader Calls Obama Campaign Negative Attack ‘Nauseating’
Concord, NH – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Wayne MacDonald released the following statement in advance of Vice President Joe Biden’s trip to New Hampshire and in response to Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s criticisms of the Obama campaign’s negative attacks that he called “nauseating” and considers “very uncomfortable.”
“If Joe Biden is coming back to New Hampshire to continue these ‘nauseating’ political attacks on job creators and free enterprise, he should reconsider. The Obama campaign’s negative tactics are not only frustrating the American people but also angering leaders within his own Democrat Party. Instead of trying to distort the truth and distract from President Obama’s record, Vice President Biden should use this trip to explain why Obama added $5 trillion to the debt with a failed stimulus bill, a government-run health plan and more tax-and-spend policies.
“I encourage New Hampshire Democrats to stand up for job creators and not be silenced by President Obama’s campaign and its attacks on the free market.”
OBAMA SURROGATE MAYOR CORY BOOKER SAYS HE'S "VERY UNCOMFORTABLE" WITH OBAMA'S LINE OF ATTACK
Mayor Cory Booker (D-Newark, NJ): "I have to say from a very personal level I'm not about to sit here and indict private equity. To me, it's just, we're getting to a ridiculous point in America. Especially, I know, I live in a state where pension funds, unions and other people are investing in companies like Bain Capital. If you look at the totality of Bain Capital's record, they've done a lot to support businesses, to grow businesses, and this to me, I'm very uncomfortable with." (NBC's "Meet The Press," 5/20/12)
