to Hillary's



That a Good one, too.. that we knew to be true..

“But, but” you stammer, as I once did, “polls show Bernie does better against Trump.” Few of us will admit it, but we’ve gotten a free ride from the press and from the Republicans as well.

Here it is right here...

Bernie’s continued candidacy has become destructive of the Party and, increasingly, of himself. Good no longer can come from it. The primary was decided weeks ago. You may not like it, I certainly did not, but that is the reality. The Sanders’ campaign needed to adjust accordingly, and it adjusted oppositely. If Bernie cannot correct course, every one of his supporters eventually will need to work through for themselves what I worked through a few weeks ago. With stakes this high, you need to be ready.

"Bernie’s continued candidacy has become destructive of the Party and, increasingly, of himself. Good no longer can come from it"

So many have to be seeing this.. he's destructive to himself.. his own worst enemy.. I've seen this for so long now. sanders has been hurting himself more than anyone.

Mahalo, HS~

burnie continues making bad decisions.. what do they expect?

I am so grateful that he's showing the world what many of us have known for so long.

He's been getting away with his crap for far too long.. maybe that's why he feels he can continue and no one can touch him?

We'll see about that.

Markos Moulitsas of the Daily Kos, who is a columnist for The Hill, was among the most emphatic critics of the statement, describing it as “an utter disgrace” and complaining that Sanders gave too much prominence to talking points and not enough to his condemnation of violence, which appeared in the third paragraph of the statement.

I applaud Kos for strongly speaking out Against BS..

Money quote from Sally Kohn..

Reflecting on the events in Nevada and the aftermath, Kohn said there was too much equivocation for her tastes in Sanders’s response.

“There is always a but — ‘But they’re passionate; but it’s rigged,’ ” she said.

“Has he done everything he can to truly distance himself from this kind of behavior in the full sense of moral leadership? I don’t think he has.

Nice and refreshing to see a big ol dose of reality coming from a former BS fan.

Thank you, working~

Let's be perfectly clear. One campaign has declared that its intention is to override the primary..

This places them outside the Democratic Party tent, and such a campaign deserves zero voice at our convention.

#SoAgree~

Sometimes my job is to kick it myself..

Wow.. thanks for that, PN. I had just read on her site where she'd

stated that she was.. so that would mean just not letting her readers in on it. Which I can see.. It says a lot about her integrity that she lost sanders over this..

According to the Nevada Democrats, after the Dems attempted to contact the missing delegates to resolve the problems with their registrations (which were either “not Democrat” or were missing addresses, etc., to make sure they were actually Nevada residents) those 58 people literally never showed up to the convention. Why would I believe the Nevada Democrats over Bernie Sanders? Because I have seen the rest of the disinformation in Bernie Sanders’s statement, and he has now lost his reputation with me of being an honest broker.

Finally!

I don't know about this, though..

I am fucking sorry to endorse Hillary Clinton, and I mean it. The Democratic primary was a good, hard, fair race in which both candidates showed the nutballs at the Trump rallies how to run a clean campaign. I was proud of all of us. While some — including the president — were calling for supporters to unite behind Hillary, and for Bernie to drop out, I thought such calls were misguided. Hell, when does the 10 percent of the country that lives in California ever get to vote! More democracy is more gooderer!

I never read that President Obama called for Bernie to drop out.. Doesn't mean it didn't happen.. I just never saw that.

Anyway.. now she's on to this..

But the Sanders campaign is now relying on Alex Jones-style conspiracies — if a Republican county clerk in Arizona shuts down a whole bunch of primary precincts because Hillary Clinton told her to, then Hillary Clinton is probably really good at getting shit done! — and flat out fucking lies to get its way. It hasn’t had any kind of intellectual consistency for months now as first it excoriated superdelegates as undemocratic even as they mirrored the popular vote, and then called for superdelegates to overthrow the will of the people by going for the candidate who has received fewer votes. (As one example, and they are legion.)

"We’ll take our check now, thanks, Mr. Brock."

"Losing them is quite a feat." I see what you mean!

Brilliant MirrorAshes! Thank you so much for writing about your personal

experience with the devolution of Bernie Sanders.

BS thinks he's all that.. but it's he who's going to be sorry.. not us. He's his own worst enemy..

We will keep the White House without him.. thanks to Hillary, President Obama and all the Democratic Leaders.

Wow, Michael Tomasky.. omg

that pic just happens to be perfect, SunSeeker.. because we've been through the whole car off the cliff with Sarandon.. but, this, as we know by now.. starts @ the top.

Hey he even used a term I have used for BS.. "egging them on.. " guess it's pretty obvious.

In such a circumstance, a normal politician would say something like: I still think the process in Nevada last weekend was unfair to my delegates. However, there is no place in my movement for this kind of invective, these kinds of threats. I renounce and denounce them completely. And I tell my supporters now, refrain from that. Hillary Clinton is my opponent in this primary; she is not our enemy.

He fixed burnie's speech for him, too.. too bad BS is not that guy.

But they’re not what’s at issue here. What’s at issue here is the people who won’t accept reality, and in particular the Pied Piper who’s blowing on the flute and waltzing them off the pier. He is becoming a sputtering joke, a man who lost 58-42 and thought—really, truly thought, deep down in his kishkes—that it was stolen from him. And his aides, according to a New York Times piece posted Wednesday night, are ready to "harm" Clinton over the course of the next month, because Sanders also believes these farkakte general-election polls taken before anyone has spent a single dollar attacking him.

This is brilliant from MT, SunSeeker~Mahalo

WTF does that have to do with the Price he's paying for ignoring the Violence and Misogyny

in Nevada?!!!

Purposely obtuse and Pure Deflection.

Bernie said: Our campaign has held giant rallies all across this country, including in high-crime areas, and there have been zero reports of violence.

Mahalo, postatomic..
