" Bernie alienates his natural allies,” Frank said. “His holier-than-thou attitude—saying in a very loud voice he is smarter than everyone else and purer than everyone else—really undercuts his effectiveness.”

People who propose risking the lives of others should be willing to take the risk themselves, right?

So those who think AQ and Taliban operating overseas are entitled to American due process should be willing to go arrest them, right?

Just asking. I mean if those who support military operations against them should be on the way to the recruiter shouldn't thone who want them arrested be on their way to wherever one prepares for suicide missions?

Bernie insults voters:

He must drop notion that everyone who disagrees with him is corrupt or a dupe.

Unfortunately, Sanders is also injecting one of the most wrong-headed and frankly embarrassing aspects of lefty thought into our discourse: The tendency to dismiss people who disagree with you as dupes who have been misled by a shadowy cabal of evil masterminds who brainwash the masses in order to perpetuate economic .

Regarding Obama's drone hit on a man never convicted of anything. Or given any due process.

Nice shot!

Fuck that dude.

FWIW - he wasn't entitled to any kind of due process unless he surrendered.

Those who do not learn from History.....Trump is not Hitler. Hitler wasn't even Hitler, until he was

He’s not Hitler, as his wife recently said? Well, of course he isn’t. But then Hitler wasn’t Hitler—until he was. At each step of the way, the shock was tempered by acceptance. It depended on conservatives pretending he wasn’t so bad, compared with the Communists, while at the same time the militant left decided that their real enemies were the moderate leftists, who were really indistinguishable from the Nazis. The radical progressives decided that there was no difference between the democratic left and the totalitarian right and that an explosion of institutions was


Anyof the above sound familiar?

Conservatives pretending he isn't so bad? Check.

Far Left that thinks the moderate Left is the real enemy? Check

Here we go folks.

Remember how it turned out the GOP was financing Nader?

Wonder how much of that is going on now.

Will Bernie be as hated by progressives as Nader

now that he is putting his ego ahead of his country?

And what makes people blow a lifetime of good work like this.

What a sad little man

Why Bernie should stay in the race.

At this point he is just making Clinton look better and better to the swing voters she will need in November.

Crazy guy on the Right - Trump

Crazy guy in the Left - Sanders.

Elder Statesman/presidential leader - Clinton.

Bernie is triangulating himself.

Confirmed: Sanders is selling a fantasy agenda.


Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has attracted a passionate following because he is selling his followers a fantasy. And not just any fantasy — but one of epic proportions. A group of respected, nonpartisan experts offered the public a sense of the scale on Monday, releasing the most thorough analysis yet on Sanders’s plan and finding that it is profoundly flawed. Before the Democrats agree to adopt his agenda, a price they might pay to get him to end his doomed campaign, they should be clear about what they are signing onto.

Sanders articulates broad principles — free health care for all; free college for everyone. When pressed on the details, he falls back on broad explanations — other countries to seem to do these sorts of things, so we can, too. But in the real world of policymaking, where specific numbers must add up and tradeoffs must be considered, his program is a flop.
