Not everyone has caught the Sanders syphilis so no.

...I agree. I don't like either.

Don't embarrass yourself.

Please.

Agreed. The Democrats are always weak when confronted with a sure thing.

On the flipside, if Sanders is nominated and wins, Republicans can thank themselves for putting him there.

We have one third of the nation solidly supporting Trump, and whatever chunk Sanders has carved out solidly supporting him, leaving the rest of us normal people shaking our heads.

Bernie buy votes.jpg


If Bloomberg were smart he'd just give Bernie a billion dollars. It would steal Bernie's main election slogan; "it's all the billionaire's fault".

Are you feeling the Bern, yet?
I find it interesting on how far Biden has fallen. On 1 Feb, Biden held the lead in Nevada, 3 weeks later Sander is trouncing him. On 1 Feb in South Carolina, Biden led Sanders by 20 points, today that lead is down to 2. Amazing.

If it were only that simple. Sanders supporters are mirror images of Trump supporters. Their only concern is disruption. What it is they are disrupting isn't even an afterthought.

"Destroy your opponent" is the new MO. And by "opponent" we mean enemy. Putin may be right that democracy is ultimately self destructive.

He scares you guys because he can win
To be honest, I don't know what to wish for. I kind of hope the DNC gives Bernie another ratf****ng, but I also think Bernie would be the easiest for Trump to beat. But if Bloomberg gets the nomination, Bernie bros will stay home and that helps Trump as well. I don't know which is best.

He will make a great president
If you consider continued extreme polarization to be great, then yeah, I agree.

I'd prefer our elected officials actually govern, but that would take a president who can unify us. Ain't gonna happen with Sanders.

I mean, the Trumpeteers like to say this, but I'm not sure y'all be happy if the 50/50 comes out Sanders

If you are sincere with your comparison, then you should also have faith that Bernie's base will help catapult the Democrats back into the White House and Congress.

I think you might be surprised. Not my cuppa, but if he's the nominee, he'll beat Trump, IMHO. Democrats may appear disunited now, but they all recognize the danger Trump continues to be. Even Bernie bros.
