We are done with Bernie

After his saying that Hillary is not qualified to be president, hubby says he will not vote at all if Bernie is the nominee and he is now getting people on board with him. Says he is going to launch his own campaign against Bernie. Looks like Bernie just destroyed what small chance he had with Democrats.

to bring his main stump speech promises to fruition & hasn't lifted a finger to bring down ticket candidates in to get his big ideas passed.
He's all talk with no clue nor care beyond the stump speech.
I will never support nor trust, a candidate who demeans the female gender with his Rape Fantasy writings as a 30 yr old adult, no more than I would have anyone else who was so secure in that thinking that he would write it down & put it in print, around my college age daughters or wife.
He gives me the fuckin creeps.
Why would I vote for someone who, by all accts, believes his big ideas are all that important or worthy of a Presidential vote.
He's not qualified to sit at my family dinner table.

Bernie Sanders is no different than a RWTeaparty.
No thanks.
Its a Dem or no one.
Bernie isn't qualified to be a Dem.

Thanks for asking anyway.

My wife and I, that is.

We are tired of his shtick and his one note message. We are tired of his constant attack on the real Dem in the race. We are tired of his followers using right wing attacks to prop up their very flawed candidate. We are tired of listening to him speak.

We are tired of this game and are ready for the inevitable....the only real outcome of this "race".

We are ready for Hillary and are tired of her having to waste money on this non -Democrat.

Most of all we are tired of what this once beautiful place has become and are ready for the eventual culling of the hateful anti Hillary voices.

None of us want him but your responsibility is to vote for what's best for the country and that is certainly not ending up with Cruz or Trump.

Sanders wouldn't get a damn thing done with congress anyway but it's a lot better than what Trump/Cruz will do.

Thats more grown up than voting for the socialist who set out from day 1 to divide the Dem Party.
What's that worth. Bernie Sanders is not worth anymore than a Republican.
Why would I reward him for doing all he could to destroying the Dem Party.
He has no intention of bringing togethet the party he has divided with slander, lies & hate.

Its a Dem or no one. And that is far more grown up than putting him in the White House.
Bernie Sanders is the Teaparty. Why would I want that?
He is no different than the Republicans.

I could never bring myself to vote for either.
I will stay a Dem.
Thanks anyway.

I could vote for him IF he is the nominee - but I would need to hear -

Black Americans are included in the Revolution going forward but have a 30 year excused absence for paying for it. Or - I would need him to put the Paycheck Fairness Act at the top of the platform. OR - I would need to hear him state: Radioactive Waste must be disposed in the state in which it was generated.

He has to make me vote for him. I'm just thinking the fix is in for some, many will be left out, and affluent, rich and wealthy blacks will be treated like Wall Street Investment bankers - when we don't have the tools those folks have to hide their "easy money" - that for us was hard earned.

So far I'm not hearing how his money message affects people of color. All I hear is his wishes for his supporters. Damn the rest of us. I was listening to Reverend Al yesterday and nearly every person who called in pretty much laid the smack down on him telling Al that he needs to stop promising things that he can't deliver. Many said that the New York Time's interview doomed his chances of winning the nomination and several said that his supporters who go all over social media bullying people is why they aren't voting for him. That brought a smile to my face

miraculous miracle won the nom, then maybe we can double down our efforts to get out the vote for our Hillary. I'm guilty of spending too much time online stressing over a repub win or worse BS so I need to seek out an organization that can help Hillary.

I still have some wonderful memories of President Kennedy and his words "My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

He also said "Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

Here's hoping with the upcoming primaries we'll have some substantial wins and Hillary can lock up pledges she needs before the convention. Then we'll be faced with the GE and ? who will be throwing everything they can against her. We need to toughen up like her and push harder than ever to win this race.

Hope everyone has a great day and watch for Hillary in her press conference this morning. Wonder what she'll say?
