Did everyone miss Charles Koch op-ed in support of Sanders today?

1. You mean where Koch said Bernie got "one thing" right?

If he said he supported Bernie across the board, then yeah, I guess I missed it.

3. Oh, it is not so much support as in saying yes, the system is rigged, just as Bernie says,

 

but the rigging is/was to make peoples' lives better, not the 1% wallets. Right.

At this point you may be asking yourself, “Is Charles Koch feeling the Bern?”

Hardly.


But I will not be astonished to see that one of today's memes is Charles Koch agrees with Bernie! So Bernie must agree with Charles Koch!

7. I think it is awesome that whatever I say becomes today's meme!

Bow down before the powerful meme-creating might of FSogol!

12. To be honest, I had not noticed that anyone in particular started memes.

 

And I really did mean "in general" - nothing specifically to do with you at all. So I am a bit puzzled by your reaction, and don't think any bowing down is necessary!

4. Did you read it? He agrees with Bernie that the system is rigged & then goes on to trash Bernie

on every single thing Bernie wants to do as president!!

If anything - I read this as the Koch's are noticing Bernie and are feeling a little concerned.

6. I'd read it more as he wants his robot, Rubio to run against Sanders since he believes

Rubio can crush him. It's what he doesn't say that needs the notice.

5. Quotes from Charles: “Is Charles Koch feeling the Bern?” Hardly."

 

"I disagree with his desire to expand the federal government’s control over people’s lives. This is what built so many barriers to opportunity in the first place."

"Bernie Sanders (I) often sounds like he’s running as much against me as he is the other candidates. I have never met the senator, but I know from listening to him that we disagree on plenty when it comes to public policy."


Claiming verbiage like that is 'in support' strikes me as entirely dishonest.

don't have to make up my mind yet. Of course, O'Malley's name will appear on my ballot, so I can lodge a protest vote for him if I want anyway.

Pros for Sanders: 100% right about many issues, closest in policy to O'Malley
Cons for Sanders: lacks the ability to pass the issues he cares about, bad track record of getting things done, probably not electable in the GE (although this has been changing)

Pros for HRC: longtime commitment to Democratic policies, strong advocate for women, good grasp of foreign affairs, excellent on world stage
Cons for HRC: doesn't understand how the party has shifted left since her husband was president, currently running a really poor campaign, lost in 2008.

But thanks for your condescension and concern.

11. That's some convoluted logic there, Koch.

I'm too tired to rebut this nonsense, but I expect I'm out numbered with Trump apologists. It is what it is.
