I speak for my wife and I and...

Last edited Wed May 18, 2016, 05:05 PM - Edit history (1)

...nobody e!se when I say what I'm about to say. I am also saying this in a protected group in case any Sanders supporters want to alert me for not confirming to the "BernieUnderground" litmus test of blind and unquestioning devotion and loyalty to the non Democrat seeking the DEMOCRATIC nomination.

My wife and I are DONE with Back Bench Bernie. To steal the title of the last episode of MASH, Goodbye, Farewell, Amen. If, by some political nightmare, he does become our nominee, I will pinch my nose and vote for the mean old tax hider, but I will not contribute one red cent nor advocate for him at all. I will watch in horror as he takes a beating from, of all people, Donald Rump, who would hand Sanders a coast to coast thumping that would make Nixon/McGovern '72 look like Kennedy/Nixon '60! The horror will be because we had passed on the most qualified presidential candidate of my (by then) 61 years in favor of HIM...YUCK!!!

The lied about endorsements, stolen data, crybaby tantrums, wholesale embrace of many times debunked rightist talking points, phoney Vatican trip among many other things made me lose all respect I ever had for him. Up until a week or so ago, I was willing to possibly choose to regain some of that respect back.

No more!

The conduct of his supporters in the Nevada fiasco and his condoning it as he asserts his victim hood, as well as their intent to turn Philadelphia into a replay of 1968 Chicago has been the final straw. I hope that Howard Dean, Maggie Kunin or some other real Democrat challenges him for his Senate seat in 2018. My wife and I would certainly actively contribute to his well earned defeat.

At the beginning of this campaign I considered him to be a great man and wouldn't say a negative thing about him, only positives about Hillary. Unfortunately, Back Bench Bernie has proven himself to be the bitter, petty little person he is, and I am sick of him, and I will deal no more with him or his fanatical backers who think that name calling and threatening women and children is an appropriate way to politically debate.

Once again, I am DONE with Bernard Sanders!

PEACE!

3. You know, the funny thing is that we're the ones that "don't care about the country", blah, blah...

and yet, with very few exceptions, the vast majority of Democrats and liberals I've seen that have become completely disillusioned with Sanders would *still* vote for him in November, because it's what's best for the country. Stopping Donald Trump is more important than throwing tantrums and holding our breath until we turn blue.

Is the reverse true? Hardly, and yet we're the ones who don't care. Projection is a wonderful thing.

5. Unfortunately Bernie was never vetted during the primaries. There is so much Trump and his superpacs

will do to destroy him. I'm not even going to mention them here. Some of the issues have been brought up here, but HRC has never incorporated them into her campaign against Bernie. Too much class.

The Trump machine and RW media will absolutely annihilate him. Look what they did to John Kerry one of the most upright politicians to campaign for the presidency; they tore apart his Vietnam service.They try to destory Pres Obama, from not being a US citizen, to his relationship with Rev Wright, his being a community organizer (socialist leanings) etc. It will be a bloodbath.

Some imbecile who now resides on my ignore list had, very shrilly, insisted that NO amount if vetting could possibly stop the Sanders sweep into the White House. Yeah, right!

16. There's a reason the Republicans want Bernie as the Dem nominee

And it's not because they love him. Having Sanders as the nominee is their wet dream; his vulnerabilities are legion: Socialism (which Republicans equate with Communism), his lack of leadership in the Senate, the tax returns, etc.

But Republicans also know by now their opponent will be Hillary. Is now, in fact.

the hit ads write themselves, with him narrating. "Yes. I will raise taxes" (Newsflash: a majority of folks, on both sides of the aisle, don't want to see their taxes raised). "Yes. I will grow the federal government." (Newsflash: a bunch of folks, on both sides of the aisle, don't want to see the federal government grow). "Yes. I am a socialist." (Newsflash: A bunch of folks don't "like" socialists/socialism, even as they enjoy its benefits).

And that's just the stuff I have heard him say.

They can then sit back on their asses in smug superiority, posting online screeds for the next 4 to 8 years while the seas rise.

After all, most Sanders supporters are sane and will vote for Hillary. As a Philly native (and proud Villanova grad) I knew Ed Rendell to be a great DA, mayor and governor. He knows how to be tough without going all Richard Daley.

Back Bench Bernie MAY come to some sense and sanity after the primary is over, but I doubt it. Not as long as he keeps getting those $27 donations!

With a Back Bench Bernie nomination, e!section night this year would be awful because, as he was getting his wrinkled ass handed to him coast to coast by Donald Rump, I'd be thinking of the president we might have had in Hillary.
