Excuse Me, Cory? Dem Senator Who Labeled Brett Kavanaugh Supporters Evil, Now Wants A 'Revival Of Civic Grace'

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is trying hard to play the likable guy card. He’s trying to look sensible. He’s really working hard to appeal to the hard left elements of the Democratic Party, but also the more centrist slices of the country that are tired of the partisanship in Washington. He’s also totally full of it. Yesterday, we saw Booker call for a “revival of civic grace,” when he went on CBS This Morning. He was responding to President Trumps’ remarks about him; the president said he doesn’t have a chance against him in 2020. I mean, this is just unbelievable (via RCP) [emphasis mine]:

President Trump said Sunday on "Face the Nation" that Booker has "no chance" against him in 2020. Booker said he is used to being "underestimated" and his political career is something "every American knows about."

"I think every American knows about being underestimated, being demeaned or just put down, it's something I faced all my political career in Newark going up against the machine. Look, the history of our country is a history of people underestimating this nation and doing impossible things, so we don't need a president that's going to put down people or divide people. This is really one of those times in American history I think we need a revival of civic grace and bringing people together," said Booker.

Oh, and you’re the man who’s going to do that, Cory? Bring us together and start a renaissance in civic grace. You just lack self-awareness, man. You call for all of this, while blithely ignoring that you called those supporting   Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court evil. That was one of the nastiest, most vicious SCOTUS battles in recent memory. And you just went off, saying that anyone who supports this man is complicit in evil (via The Hill):

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.)...that senators who don’t oppose President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are “complicit in the evil.”

Booker, speaking at a press conference with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and religious and moral leaders, said that Kavanaugh’s nomination “has nothing to do with politics” but with “who we are as moral beings.”

“I’m here to call on folks to understand that in a moral moment, there is no neutral. In a moral moment, there is no bystanders,” he said. “You are either complicit in the evil, you are either contributing to the wrong, or you are fighting against it.”

Yeah, we remember those words, senator. And we’ll make sure Middle America remembers. Booker's swipe at GOP senators over Kavanaugh, and by extension Republicans who voted for them and supported Kavanaugh's nomination, for being complicit in evil is once again an example of Democrats demonizing half the country over differing views. Don’t be fooled by the overtures of civic grace’s return from the Left. It’s just a ploy to lull you into complacency so that they can deliver a fatal blow, while also saying you’re trash human beings. It’s wartime, folks. Act like it. Bunker down. And ignore these fake, hollow calls of unity from politicians who just called you evil for...supporting a qualified jurist a few months ago.

Oh yeah, we know you regretted these remarks, but give us a break man. You did this because you were gearing up for 2020 and needed to not look like a loony toon lefty.
