President Barack Obama senior adviser David Axelrod criticized Cory Booker’s comments that attacks on Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital were nauseating.
“In this particular instance, he was just wrong. There were specific instances here that speak to an economic theory that isn’t the right theory for the country,” Axelrod told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell.
“I love Cory Booker,” Axelrod added. “He’s a great mayor. If my house was on fire, I’d hope he was my next door neighbor.”
