Stephanopoulos Presses Sanders for Suggesting Obama Primary Challenge in 2012


George Stephanopoulos confronted Bernie Sanders on ABC’s This Week this morning over Martin O’Malley‘s attack that he was disloyal to President Obama.

During the South Carolina Democratic forum this past Friday, O’Malley touted his credentials as a lifelong Democrat who fully supported the president in 2012 before saying Sanders was trying to get someone to run against Obama.

In March 2011, Sanders said that a primary challenge to the president would “enliven” the debate on the Democratic side, and four months later he even said, “One of the reasons the president has been able to move so far to the right is that there is no primary opposition to him… I think it would be a good idea if President Obama faced some primary opposition.”

When Stephanopoulos pressed him earlier on “trying to gin up opposition,” but Sanders dismissed this as “media stuff.” He insisted that the implication he opposed Obama’s reelection is “categorically false.”

Bernie Sanders: Media Scrutiny of Ben Carson Is Why People Hate Politics


"Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders does not believe the media scrutiny Republican Ben Carson is receiving is fair game for a presidential campaign.

Appearing Sunday morning on Meet the Press, the Vermont senator said the real problems with Carson’s candidacy are his positions on the issues, not anecdotes he recounted decades ago. Sanders slammed Carson for his views on climate change, Medicare, and taxes."


Did I read this wrong. Please tell me Bernie did not give Pathological Liar Ben Carson a pass on everything he lied about.

I guess Ben is not that bent out of shape about as he originally seemed

Ben Carson Thanks ‘Biased Media’ for His Good Fundraising Week


Bernie Sanders Dances to Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’

"Leave it to daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres to get the presidential candidates to dance. She has yet to incite any of the Republican contenders into attending a televised dance-off, but Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton joined her for a bout. Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders followed suit soon after. Despite her success, however, DeGeneres decided to subject the dancing mania to her audience further — specifically with stock footage of Sanders busting moves back stage."

This should help his poll numbers!

Seriously though, cool cut and paste job by Ellen. Very cute.
