So Booker intentionally, AND VERY PUBLICLY attacks "the evil rich guy".

Those of the people in this thread that are "shocked" and think it's "dumb" to do this "in public" have missed that point entirely.

This is EXACTLY what Booker intentioned to do - he wants to come off as defending the helpless poor of Newark against the big, bad, powerful "Wall Street" guy, and these extremely public comments were not a passionate and frustrated slip of the tongue, but a quite intentional politically calculated attempt to tap into the Democrat's 2012 political narrative against the rich.
Damn you, was just going to post a similar view.

Booker is taking a ride on the "Lets blame the 1% maaan", train.
