This rhetoric sounds awfully familiar. Remember when Obama told his supporters he wanted them to get in people’s faces? Does Booker believe he’s the new Obama? It sure looks that way.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Booker Tells Activists to ‘Get Up in the Face of Some Congresspeople’
Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.) on Wednesday told activists at the National Conference on Ending Homelessness not to protest from the sidelines.
Booker said the way to get through to Congress is to “get up in the face of some congresspeople.” That call to action echoes his Democratic colleague Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.) and others who have said Republican officials should face regular opposition in public.
“Before I end, that’s my call to action here. Please don’t just come here today and then go home,” Booker said. “Go to the Hill today. Get up and please get up in the face of some congresspeople.”
Booker’s rhetoric somewhat contrasts his insistence earlier this month that Americans “need to stop the bulls—t partisanship.” At an event about the economy, the senator said “opportunists on both sides” are sowing needless division.
“We have more common ground then we care to admit, and we’re letting political opportunists on both sides of the aisle try to undermine the truth of this nation, that the ties that bind us are so much strong then the lines that divide us,” Booker said on July 11.

Booker is clearly going to run in 2020. This type of talk won’t help him.
