2. Two problems with that (of course):

 

1. She never said he was unqualified
2. Sanders will not be running for President in the GE

Sorry.

3. Her campaign did which speaks for her.

 

Nothing worse than a bunch of low-life weasels who hide behind weasel words.

15. The headline writer got carried away because Hillary never said he was unqualified.

Saying he hadn't done his homework on those specific issues -- which was clearly true, since he had difficulty answering a number of the questions -- was NOT the same as saying he wasn't qualified to be President.

Of course someone has has been in Congress for more than 30 years is qualified and she has never even hinted that he wasn't.

19. It's exactly the same. The Clinton campaign made it clear what their intentions were

 

and the WP picked up on it. They knew exactly what the Clinton camp was doing and meant to say.

21. There's no quote of anyone in her campaign saying that.

 

Wanna try again?

6. Not unlike the Sanders campaign, which comes to a close no later than July 25.

7. Good thing Sanders already admitted he does not believe that- and said it as "tit for tat"

 

because HRC's surrogates hurt his feelings.

8. Another stupid OP. We've seen this before when McCain used Hillary's words against Obama!

It happens with every party in every campaign. This is nothing new.

14. That was a misleading WA Post headline because Hillary never questioned whether Bernie was qualified

And he was duped by that headline, which wasn't supported by the text of the article, and then he called her unqualified.

17. Did Hillary Clinton write a correction for publication in the Washington Post?

 

Did Hillary also correct that in her campaign speeches to grouplets?

18. Why should she? She wasn't the reporter and she didn't represent the WA Post.

And Bernie instantly responded by calling HER unqualified, and she was busy responding to that.

Bernie should have apologized to her -- she did nothing wrong. He, OTOH, over-reacted to a headline without bothering to read the actual article.

20. Her campaign released a statement the night of his big WI win that you are overlooking - preceding

the Post article. The statement, read live on CNN, was that she was going to change course to disqualify him and put the party back together afterward. Why do we have to keep reminding her supporters of this official declaration?

16. For crying out loud,people,

When Trump calls her "Crooked Hillary",then
he makes a stronger point than disqualifying her.

At this point though he seems more interested
in using her gender,imo.

If she becomes the nominee, she will have the
whole repug machine against her, not just Trump.
