CNN video. Bernie Sanders wonders if media will ignore him until he attacks Hillary Clinton.
His statement about the TPP is strong...says there must be a stand for or against, no fence sitting.
This appears to be his interview from today. He makes a good point when he wonders if the media will allow civil debate or if they are waiting for him to attack Hillary Clinton.
but it's before his 'formal' announcement. Which he still hasn't made. I think this is from yesterday, isn't it?
His formal campaign kick off announcement is May 26th.
You can tell from what is being discussed in the interview
it was from today.
so I think the broadcast is recent, and obviously post announcement. Perhaps you neglected to watch the video before commenting?
Can't wait to see how his very sensible statement is turned around into what it is not.
He's running for president on a shoestring budget,I'm OK with him trying to get as much face time as he can.
On talks shows, etc.
I like much of his message, particularly the part about us needing to he more like Scandanavian countries. But, he can't get is there as Prez (yes, that's just my opinion).
How much air time has he received relative to the other candidates?
exasperated for him. It was Sanders trying to get his points out and her basically saying "lets watch you and her fight". It was like a script from Idiocracy.
I might have been tempted to ask, "What do you want me to do? Pull her hair?". ( In case I need it. )
You're right, much of the political discussion in this nation reads like a bad movie script.
"If it bleeds, it leads," and all that crap.
Speculation fits you very well, sir.
Hillary and Bernie will be dunking it out in due time. It's stupid for anyone to pretend like it won't happen.
The question is, who will be nasty, petty an personal. You can go negative and still be respectful. In fact, you cannot win if you don't go negative. Negative simply means distinguishing yourself from the opponent.
He also said Clinton should take a position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a massive 12-country deal that President Barack Obama is pushing to the dismay of liberals.
"You can't be on the fence of this one," he said. "You're either for it or you're against it. No fence-sitting on this one."
Sanders said he personally likes Clinton. He said he's willing to challenger her on policy issues -- but that he hopes media will cover those differences without Sanders having to launch "reckless attacks."
"Are you in the media prepared to allow us to engage in that serious debate?" he said. "Or do I have to get media attention by simply making reckless attacks on Hillary Clinton or anybody else? I don't believe in that. I believe in serious debates on serious issues."
of him. To infer he had not "real" political experience. But he can give as good as he got. And she never responded...just went to Talking Point #whatevah
It is delightful to hear him calling out their MO. The way you fight corruption and manipulation is by making them explicit for people.
What he is doing is so important. He is re-teaching this nation what we have a right to expect from a representative political process, and pointing out how perversely ours has been corrupted.
REAL hope and change. We need Bernie in the White House.
Because we sure as hell need him. These talking heads make me sick trying to lead him down the garden path, following their agenda of "We want to see a horse race and cage fighting combined. Screw the issues." Bernie is so much smarter than any of them and so far is doing a great job of sticking to this guns.
I have been stunned at times to find out how many people in this area have no clue about issues at all.
stirring shit instead of having serious debates about serious issues. Political mud wrestling is more entertaining.
Make no mistake...the media is just as happy to ensure that Sanders continues to be marginalized.
which leads to more Super-PAC bucks!
The networks are going to do whatever they have to do to get all of that anonymous money spent on THEM
I'm definitely voting for him in the primary. I haven't sent him any money yet but I'm going to.
I like Clinton too, but as he infers as a senator she did not do anything about these issues.
Please do the same and rec it up. This is a harbinger of what Bernie will have to put up with. I hope the snooze people get tired of trying to pit him against HRC, but not likely/
The great thing about Bernie is that he tries to
tell them to stick to the issues.
It is difficult now to tell the people that they are
supposed to lead the government and what
the government should be responsible for.
Unfortunately Reagan's detrimental put down
of government still is prevalent.
but that doesn't make such great news as attacking someone.
It is crystal clear, as are the reasons. It's also disgusting
leggy, short tight skirts with 5 inch high heels? That's Evolutionary, if you think about it. Who cares about seeing men's suit pants...boring, right?
