Interesting editorial in the Wall Street Journal about the primary

As more polls show that Hillary Clinton could lose to Donald Trump, Democratic media and political elites have decided that the problem is—Bernie Sanders. The socialist warhorse has had his campaign fun, but now he and his supporters refuse to slink away quietly into Howard Dean obscurity. Doesn’t he know that his persistence is helping Republicans?

We’d humbly suggest that these Democrats are looking through the wrong end of the campaign telescope. Bernie’s continuing string of victories is the symptom of the political...

2. The problem is Hillary Clinton and her party boss buddies.

She needs to step off.

7. The time for her to have done that with grace and dignity was when the wheels fell off the bus

 

at the first of the year.

3. Most Clinton supporters will never entertain such a thought.

I agree. Bernie has a great shot at getting Republicans to vote for him. In the end, they are as disgusted with the establishment as he and we are. Craig Melvin on MSNBC asked a Republican woman working in a greenhouse who she would vote for. She answered Trump in the primary and Bernie in the GE. I know, only one person. But representative of many I believe. Melvin was rather surprised.

4. more importantly, he gets Republicans to vote for him by *being a Democrat*

Clinton gets them to vote for her by being a Republican

we can see which path succeeds

11. This is a very important point. Obama did that too. Ignore his base and court the Republicans

 

Disaster!

18. his rightie instincts (Rahm used him to destroy any IL Congresspeople who got too liberal) and his

constant wavering gave the Republicans all their power 2009-11

he let DeMint hold up State Department nominations over Honduras, and then caved on Honduras anyway--lose-lose

5. At some point, there might have been *something* that the WSJ editorial page said

That wasn't complete right-wing serving horseshit. I didn't read this one, so maybe this is it. Probably not though.

9. Surprise, surprise. The RW extremist WSJ editorial page supports Bernie Sanders.

 

For most people, that would be a big ol' dope slap to the back of the head.

For Bernistas, it's just more proof that Bernie is The Chosen One.

just gobble it up so long as it's unfavorable to Hillary.

13. A "Trudge Up The Hill" candidate in an insurgent year.

Add on top of that a huge mountain of corruption, a lousy neocon neoliberal track record, and a shapeshifting message.

Only someone who wants to lose would run HRC over Bernie this year.

16. Christopher Ruddy of Newsmax and James Murdoch of Fox News are Clinton allies

They both contributed from $1 million to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation.

Does that mean Fox and Newsmax are no longer flawed, right-wing sources? Or are they now OK, like Henry Kissinger?

20. The leading paragraphs and the conclusion paragraphs are accurate. The middle is propaganda.

 

But, it's the Wall Street Journal opinion page, so twisted pro-billionaire propaganda is to be expected. And there are some tidbits of information in the editorial, if you ignore the middle:

The latest Fox News poll shows that Mrs. Clinton is viewed as more corrupt than Mr. Trump, 49% to 37%. She is also now viewed negatively by more of the electorate than is Mr. Trump—61% to 56%. This takes some doing given Mr. Trump’s incendiary primary campaign and the continuing doubts about him among millions of Republicans.
