Anderson Cooper Goes Cory Booker on Obama Campaign Spokesman
Newsbusters ^ | 5-22-12 | PJ Gladnick

Posted on 05/22/2012 8:11:15 AM PDT by tcrlaf

One almost has to feel sorry for Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt. He showed up on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 yesterday probably expecting the type of softball questions that MSNBC hosts would toss at him. Instead, Anderson Cooper took a page from Cory Booker's criticism of "nauseating" attacks on private equity firms such as Bain Capital and kept asking LaBolt how the Obama campaign can criticize Bain while simultaneously raising funds from the same type of companies.

The clearly unprepared LaBolt spent the interview filibustering with a flurry of words that were designed not to answer the questions about the obvious fundraising hypocrisy by the Obama campaign. Watch LaBolt as he filibusters his way to the end of the interview without giving any answers: (Video)

LaBolt probably knew he was in extreme hot water while listening to Cooper introduce his segment with the Cory Booker reference:

ANDERSON COOPER: President Obama essentially double downed on the Bain attacks today, saying this is not a distraction from the campaign, this is going to be a centerpiece of the campaign. At the same time, critics say the attacks on Bain are hypocritical. As we pointed out a couple of nights ago, the same day last week that the previous Bain ad came out, President Obama was fund-raising at the home of this guy, Tony James.

Mr. President is president of Blackstone. Blackstone is a private equity firm that is actually a lot bigger than Bain and like Bain has bought companies and cut payrolls. Now, in that ad, a laid-off worker likens the head of Bain to a vampire, the same night Mr. Obama sits down for dinner with the head of Blackstone.

Democrats understand that the lib sheep are STOOPID, and that the Mainstream Media will cover for whatever propaganda they want to spew at the Sheeple.

Do you think a Republican could EVER get by with this kind of hypocrisy?

I'm actually very shocked that Cooper DARED to cover this, at all!

MSM has their moments ping!

They smell blood now as this campaign issue has turned back on Obama.

He had that Forrest Gump look-a-like stuttering and stammering. Cooper must be auditioning for a FNC job. I hope Fox doesn’t hire him though. They made that mistake many years ago with Paula Zahn.
