Why I Cannot Support Cory Booker For President
Corey Booker is one of two dozen Presidential candidates for the Democratic nomination. However, based on Mr. Booker,s history, I cannot support him for President and here's why.
Support for Charter Schools:
As Mayor of Newark, Mr. Booker supported charter schools and was the darling of the education reform movement. He was also anti-teacher and supported merit pay and weakened tenure laws. Remember what Barack Obama did? Teacher evaluations, support of charter schools, and a champion for Teach For America two year wonders.
Support for the Palestinians:
Cory Booker was seen holding a sign that supports the Palestinian cause. He also refused to attend the AIPAC convention. While Mr. Booker is not anti-Israel, it does bring back how Barack Obama poorly handled US Israel relations.
Do Nothing Senator:
Mr. Booker as Senator has done little of consequence except support an education reformer agenda.
While one well respected blogger may support Cory Booker as President he might want to remember that when it comes to education, Cory Booker is another Barack Obama and remember how that worked out?
