Corey Booker quickly walked back his criticism of the Obama campaign hammering Willard Romney for his role in Bain Capital destroying jobs…
Even Democrats are getting tired…
Senior Democrat John Conyers of Michigan criticized Barack Obama Monday, hoping, Conyers said, to “make him a better president.”
Citing the troubled job market, rising energy costs, and turmoil in the Middle East, Conyers told reporters at the National Press Club: “We keep getting a longer and longer list of things he wanted to do, wished he could do more about, and is of course having a big problem.”
“The only thing that saves him, of course, is that there doesn’t seem to be anybody to run against him next year,” Conyers said.
After naming prospective challengers Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich, among others, Conyers said he still supports Obama because “the alternative is unthinkable. I just want to make him a better president.”
American foreign policy was among the areas the Michigan congressman criticized for what he consider an emphasis on military might over other ways to achieve U.S. goals.
Conyers said, “It is kind of amazing to me that there is still adopted, even in this administration, the attitude that military prowess will settle things down. And they rarely, if ever, do.”

Aaron McGruder pokes a lot more than just good humored fun at Tyler Perry’s Medea series.
Aaron McGruder of “The Boondocks” and Tyler Perry of “Meet the Browns” and TBS’ “House of Payne” are unlikely allies, but they have a common link. Both are the key creative forces behind some of Turner Broadcasting’s popular hits.
Still, executives for the broadcaster, which owns both TBS and the Cartoon Network (home to “Boondocks”), might be wise not to sit the two men together at the same table during the next company picnic.
The latest episode of “The Boondocks,” the satirical animated TV series that airs on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim slate, takes brutal aim at Perry and his brand, which blends melodrama, raucous comedy and religious themes. Coming under intense ridicule is Perry’s portrayal of Madea, the gun-toting, foul-mouthed grandmother at the center of many of his films. (more…)
