3. No it doesn't.. And, I think it's important to highlight

 

how BS is conducting his business.. he's busy smearing Joe Biden now with trump's name and it's only July 2019.

I like it when Dems show they are all in for beating trump not just for themselves. I'm sure if another candidate gets to be in 1st place besides Biden that they will get the same treatment.

I want a candidate who thinks about the importance of our country and our Planet.

One of those candidates would be Joe Biden..

The former vice president told the audience, “I hope you’ll vote for me,” but also highlighted that if he doesn’t win the nomination, “whoever our nominee is, I’m going to break my neck to make sure they get elected.”

Mahalo, ucr!

Oh yeah, and Biden is kind hearted and generous, too!

I really am shocked by these tweets, especially that Sanders' tweet came just 3 days before the general election, and after that God awful Comey letter all but derailed Hillary's campaign. Her campaign was hanging by a thread. Who knows how many crucial swing state votes Sanders' tweet may have cost Hillary, or given Trump. All while I tediously dialed numbers hoping to get out just one Democratic voter who might not have bothered to go out and vote for Hillary.

I'm angry, but it is also excruciatingly painful. These are supposed to be our allies.

SunSeeker, for the Important Phone Banking you did for Hillary and a heartfelt Thanks, also, to every single person who GOTV for our Democratic Candidate Against the Monster trump.. 66 Million People knew it was important to vote for Hillary.

I'd like to know why he was doing this 3 days before the General Election? What was his point?

And, the 2nd tweet.. why didn't she know how mportant it was to vote for the Democratic Candidate against trump?

165. +100, SunSeeker. We'll never know how many nonvoters would

 

voted if he wasn't making many criticisms from the left similar to the Republicans' from the right, all augmented by Russia and crooked biased media, of course. A perfect storm gusting from all directions.

He already had a decades-long history of being what he is, though, and I'm sure our party leaders hoped, rather than expected, that he'd be less oppositional while running on the Democratic ticket than from outside.

Mine also insisted on thinking that everyone who voted for Trump was either racist, sexist or both--and that we should never normalize Trump & his voters by suggesting people had valid reasons for voting for him.

57. Hm. Maybe this is what the religious right takes for demonic possession.

 

Just occurred to me to wonder. Pew reports that 7 out of 10 Republicans say Trump's "comments" make them feel pretty good and chose descriptive terms including "entertained, hopeful, excited, respected, inspired, and—somehow—informed."

Demons are clearly involved somehow.

Whatever, it may be just my personal conceit and a massive delusion, but I believe thinking brains are always the biggest obstacle for bad leaders. Whenever I see attempts to smear and deceive, I know the appeal is NOT to my intellect and integrity. And that giant red flag on this one went up long ago.

67. Let us not forget.

 

I think a big proponent of 2016 was the backlash having black in the White House for 8 yrs. Awesome black, of integrity and morality and ethics and family values. Love. Many of us rejoiced, and bathed in the diversity. But, a large faction of the U.S. simmered in hate. I think that was just one of many of the obstacles Clinton adopted in 2016 or was put in front of her to hurtle.

Apparently any degree of power, even that of a candidate who lost months before, can be revealing. Of what, of course, can be interpreted as people wish.

However isn't that blue dot with the white check mark next to their names signifying that they are verified accounts? If that is true then how is this an attack? Twitter is a public forum that anyone can read, retweet or copy. If she did not wish for people to know how she voted, she should not have posted in a public forum.

I have no clue how someones statement on a public forum could be construed as an attack since they were that persons own words from a verified account. This isn't a misquote. It wasn't taken out of context by the evil media. It was a statement made by that person on their very own twitter feed.

Is running a search on Twitter an attack? It's not like they are from a secret source.

If searching and finding past quotes is somehow an attack, color me guilty.

about how proud she is to have done her part to ensure that a Democrat would not be elected in 2016.







I'm so glad I got screen shots of EVERYTHING before the courageous progressive warrior tried to disappear her own record by scrubbing her account.

41. The less damaging of two bad options.

 

Our pros aren't stupid, and they've always known what he is and very likely to do, far better than people who don't have their information about and personal experiences with him.

Sander hasn't changed his mind about what the liberal-dominated Democratic Party is in 50 years, literally the same attitudes now as when he first ran for local office on a very hostile anti-Democratic platform. His current campaign is full of almost daily claims that there's little difference between Republicans and Democrats. After over 40 years of documented statements, I think it's reasonable to accept that he truly believes it, strange as that is.

POLITICO: “I am not now, nor have I ever been, a liberal Democrat,” he said in a profile in New England Monthly." ...

He started as a politician in the 1970s as a perennial protest candidate with the anti-Vietnam War Liberty Union Party, offering voters an alternative to the two major parties, which he considered ineffective and equally beholden to corporate lords... (ME: Sanders couldn't possibly win, but he was able to siphon off a few thousand Democratic votes, helping throw the election to the Republican challenger.)

In ’86, he decided to run for governor, against Madeleine Kunin, which bothered her—Sanders’ “daily diet consisted of vitriol,” she would write in her memoir—and worried many Vermont Democrats, who thought he might peel away enough votes to foil the reelection bid of the state’s first female governor. Democrats, Welch recalled, were “extremely upset.”

Sanders responded by intensifying his invective. ...

If Bernie has proof that any member of Congress has or is receiving bribes, a crime, he should tell us! He should expose such corruption. Why doesn't he?

Insurance companies and drug companies give members of congress a lot of money.

These members of congress tend to support legislation that is favorable to the insurance and drug companies.

Most of us in the world recognize this as a kind of bribe, even though the quid pro quo can not be legally proven.

That's our system, and Bernie's not wrong.

Yes, our politicians represent the people of their state, and also those that donate. We all recognize this. Sanders is not a genius speaking about this. He knows. He experiences it himself, being in the role of a politician. It is there for us to see. The issue with Sanders' is he points the finger at others, and excuses his own.

2018 top 20 recipients of money from the pharmaceutical industry, 7 are Dems:

Insurance industry (also 7 of the 20 are Dems):

https://www.opensecrets.org/industries/recips.php?ind=F09++

and you can look up whatever other sector you want.

Of course proving that someone voted the way they did because they got a big contribution from someone who would benefit from it is pretty much impossible. But common sense says that these industries would not be frittering away millions of dollars on campaign contributions if they didn't think there was some benefit to be had. Even if it's only "so they'll pick up the phone and listen if we call," getting their ears is half the battle, and more than half if the call is from someone in a position to control big chunks of money that can contine to flow into their campaigns, or not.

Anyone who cast any vote for any presidential candidate other than the Democrat on November 6, 2016 shares responsibility for anything and everything that flows from the Trump presidency.

History will not exonerate them. They need to take responsibility and apologize.

Exactly. If someone's vote (or non vote) doesn't DIRECTLY benefit the Democrat, then it benefited Trump.

Fact of the matter is, it DOES matter who you vote for. The winner of the presidential election will come from only ONE of TWO parties. The winner will be either the Democrat or the Republican.

The "Independent" will not win. The "Libertarian" will not win. The "Socialist" will not win. The "Green" will not win.

In our defacto two-party system, ONLY the Democrat or the Republican will win.

There is no doubt that tRump IS both racist and sexist--as are most supporters. It is wide open for all to witness on a daily basis. To give cover to those considering voting for him is shocking. We need to ask why.

87. All We Have To Do Is Look At The Trump Voters Sanders Currently Pursues In The Primary

 

He just finished a swing through multiple tiny burgs in Iowa. There were voters wearing MAGA hats still request Sanders' autographs. Further, he has reported them as decent, hardworking people. Would bigots truly turn out to hear a speech by, and request selfies with, a Jewish candidate for the White House? What would other Nazis think of that.

The bottom line is that, for sure, SOME Trump voters in 2016 cast their ballot for him because they hate Mexicans, et al. However, exit polling and downstream research has concluded that many others voted for Trump because they couldn't vote for Bernie in the general. That proves beyond any doubt that, in 2016, many Trump voters weren't racists.

109. Sen. And Mrs. Sanders Sent That Tweet In Response To Critics

 

They tried to repel guilt by association. Even though Bernie had campaigned hard for Hillary in the general, it was known that many Sanders voters would cast their ballot for Trump because the early voting returns indicated such. The accusation that all Trump voters were racist meant, by extension, that, had Sanders secured the nomination, some people who would have voted for him in the general were racist. Given that he would have become the first Jewish-American president with that victory, it was counterintuitive to accept that a majority of 2016 Trump voters were racist. Many were, but far from all.

152. Brothers and sisters ...you are being played!

 

First off this post is completely inflammatory and has one Purpose to manipulate people who feel Sanders is somehow not loyal enough to the Democratic Party. The post implies a connection to Jane Sanders comment on her vote (a private choice btw) and sanders saying the majority of Trumps voters were not racist.
We need to address both implications and why the juxtaposition is unnecessary.
Many studies have concluded that there was a connection between American racial concerns and the motivations of Trumps 2016 voter base however this correlation does not mean the majority of his base were racist at the time of the last election. Honestly if you have been misinformed about black lives matter and you believe it might be a radical group (Fox news viewers) you might support a president who does not support them. Your ignorance there doesn’t make you a racist however it creates a composite of the racial motivation when you voted. The examples of this could get really long but the reality is that having racial concerns and being a racist aren’t the same thing, with many headline grabbing studies reflecting this once you read them Beyond the headlines.
Secondly it wasn’t too long ago who you voted for was a private choice. Exercising your franchise was between you and the voting booth and while you may support a party who are you voted for was more or less a private affair. Honestly for all we know Jane voted for her husband as a write in. At the end of the day Vermont went for Hillary so who cares.
These two issues alone are non-starters However when you mash them together And look at them out of context they look way more nefarious than they are. It was that grey area this post created and that was the point wasn’t it? To make people make a connection that was never there. Shame on you!

That's my OP and you don't have to agree with it however it's odd that you ignored my thought on the context of the two "tweets" and defends your relationship with the poster ( BTW I've been a member since 2004).

Brothers and sisters ...you are being played!

First off this post is completely inflammatory and has one Purpose to manipulate people who feel Sanders is somehow not loyal enough to the Democratic Party

snip==================================================================

It was that grey area this post created and that was the point wasn’t it? To make people make a connection that was never there. Shame on you!


The only thing the OP did was to quote the public statements of one of the current candidates and of his chief advisor in the crucial GOTV period of the 2016 general election.

"First off this post"... not this poster THIS POST.

please understand "the post" and "the poster" are different things. There is an argument in my post to get to the "shame on the you" for the post for making readers to make a false connection. Sorry if you don't understand that decision or rather I fear you have chosen to ignore it.

160. Shame on the OP for examining the 2016 GE public statements of one of the current candidates

 

and the public statements of the person the Burlington Free Press has confirmed is his chief advisor?


Jane Sanders, who also serves as a chief adviser to her husband's presidential campaign, is not compensated for her role at the institute. Her son, David Driscoll, is paid $100,000 a year as co-founder and executive director. Driscoll previously was an executive for Nike and the Vermont snowboarding firm Burton, but had no previous nonprofit experience, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Actually the shame belongs to those who seek to shut down discussions by making baseless accusations against other people with valid points to share.

If I put a picture of a person with a gun next to a picture of a body on the ground many people will think the two pictures are related. That's how the human mind works. We create relationships and patterns between things when they are presented together. Present each one alone and you got next to nothing.

157. Clinton apologizes for calling half of Trump's supporters 'deplorables

 


The Republican criticism prompted a quick, but partial, apology from Clinton, who said in a statement released early Saturday: “Last night I was ‘grossly generalistic,’ and that’s never a good idea. I regret saying ‘half’ -- that was wrong.”

https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-clinton-deplorables-20160910-snap-story.html

By the way I think she was wrong to apologize and that Sanders was also wrong to make that claim. But hindsight is 20/20, and at the time is seemed the politically expedient thing to do.

161. All sorts of folks (including the press) kept demanding that HRC "take responsibility and apologize"

 

both during the 2016 GE campaign and after Trump's election. Often it was for short pieces of text taken out of the context broader statements, yielding misleading soundbites that were amplified over and over to serve various agendas

I wish the press would take responsibility and apologize for missing the most important story in a generation -- systematic Russian interference in our election -- because they were too focused on revenue and ratings generating gossip and story lines to pay attention.

I also wish that anyone who touted their support of third party candidates in 2016 or excused others for abrogating their responsibility to keep Trump out of the White House would acknowledge their ownership of Trump's culture of cruelty, his administration's domestic and foreign policies, the bankrupting of our country in the service of making millionaires richer, and the current Supreme Court.

History will not absolve them.

They need to take responsibility and apologize.

164. HRC worked hard not to alienate any voters. Her slogan was "Stronger Together".

 

For some, keeping Trump out of the White House was not an important enough goal. They had scores to settle. They worked their hardest to deliver Trump the presidency, and they did it with pride and glee.

I was disappointed when he didn't get the nomination, but I put on my big girl pants and supported Hillary. There was no conspiracy against Bernie. Hillary won fair and square. Other than the convention tantrums by the Bernie Bros, I was largely in the dark (by choice) about what his more extreme supporters where up to. I'm not making that mistake again.

184. On any campaign I've ever worked with, it's a two-pronged approach.

 

Task 1: Ask people if they are registered and, if not, help unregistered voters to register to the extent that state election law allows you. (For example, in NY you can hand out forms, answer general questions about the forms, and offer to mail them. In PA, you can help people fill out the forms and offer to mail them, but you can't fill out any part of the form for them.)

Task 2: Advocate for Democratic candidates by talking about their achievements, platforms, and policy positions and by highlighting key differences between the Democratic candidate and candidates from other parties.

During the GOTV period, volunteers do everything possible to get Democrats to the polls, be it helping them to find their polling places, giving them mass transit information, arranging for transportation, or even personally driving them to the polls.

Here in NY where polls close at 9:00 pm, on the day of a presidential election, volunteers frequently work well past 10:00 pm.

The chief advisor to the BS campaign stopped far short of what every Democratic GOTV volunteer is trained to do.

This wasn't the chief advisor's first GE campaign. I wonder why she failed to do what every volunteer works so hard to accomplish?
