Why the Republicans Don't Want to Run Against Bernie Sanders

Bernie might actually be able to wake up Americans to the fact that since Ronald Reagan, they'be been screwed by Republican economoc policies and they'be been voting against their own interests for 35 years. People are pissed and that message will resonate. He is the polar opposite of GOP polices that have ruined people's lives.

With NAFTA, Free trade deals, and outsourcing of jobs overseas, how many of you think Hillary can successfully pull off that message?

1. I gave up Fox in 2002 the one year of my life I had cable

So for less than a year I fell for it. BTW life without cable good.

2. Bernie represents the unknown.

 

Hillary represents the typical opponent, and they know how to run against an ordinary Democrat. They would have to come up with a whole new bag of tricks against Sanders.

3. They would be running against us, Bernie's supporters as well. We won't fall for the usual crap

that works on the half-wits and only stoke the campaign with more contributions if they try it. Another 7 months of Bernie out there getting his message out will also be a YUUUUGE wild-card. How much more of a turnout, especially among young voters could he get?
