Newark Mayor Cory Booker Saves Neighbor from Burning Building

Friday, April 13, 2012

In a selfless act of heroism, Newark Mayor Cory Booker saved a neighbor’s life by bolting through raging flames and falling embers to pulling her from a smoke-choked bedroom Thursday night.

Can you imagine NJ Gov. Fatso, AKA, Chris Christie doing this? Especially, without a helicopter and a baker’s dozen from Krispy Kreme?

Booker, widely seen as a rising star in the Democratic party, appeared today with second-degree burns on his right hand, confessed Friday that he thought death was imminent in the seconds before he rescued Zina Hodge from the inferno.

“At that point, I didn’t feel bravery — I felt terror,” the 42-year-old mayor said at a news conference. “It was a moment I felt very religious, put it that way.

“I had a conversation with God I never had before,” Booker continued. “I feel very blessed.”

    Cory Booker is a great guy. Very cool guy. I hope he runs for New Jersey governor one day.

    Christie would never risk his fat ass to save a resident of New Jersey from a burning building. He’s too busy auditioning for vice president. Christie is determined to be Mitt Romney’s number two. If he’s selected he will be Mitt’s number 350.🙂

    ^5^! to Mayor Booker.

    He’s a genuine hero at a time when heros are as rare as hen’s teeth. Especially in American politics.

    A study in contrasts.

    Cory Booker risked life and limb to rescue the woman from the burning building and sustained 2nd degree burns in the process. He simply reacted like a human being trying to help another human being in harms way.

    If Chris Christie found himself in similar settings, he would’ve said something pithy like, “this is what happens when you ignore warnings to have a working smoke detector in your home.”

    Booker is fit, young and healthy. Christie is, oh how do I say it? Rotund, slow and unfit. Indeed, a startling contrast. Booker is Super Mayor. Christie is a slug.

    Reminds me of 2009 and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett…. who went to aid a citizen …. and was beaten for his trouble.

    …he is currently a Democratic candidate for Governor against Svott ‘Eat Shit’ Walker. YHa gotta love a politician with personal courage.
