Try as I might not to like this guy, I have to admit, the man has class:

To that end, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell spent much of her interview with Sanders on Monday trying to get him to criticize Clinton on something — anything. But Sanders managed to maintain the high ground, refusing to hit his rival on the email controversy or even a recent poll that uncovered “liar” as the word voters associate with her most.

<SNIP>

At this point, Sanders had clearly had it with this line of questioning.

“I have known Hillary Clinton for 25 years. And I know her to be a very hardworking, intelligent person, somebody I worked with in the Senate,” he said. “So I am sorry, I am not going to get into the media game, Andrea, of attacking, making personal attacks, against Hillary Clinton. I just am not going to do that. I don’t think that’s what the American people want. I think we have got to focus on the real issues. Why is the middle class disappearing and almost all new income and wealth going to the top 1 percent? Why don’t we have a trade policy that works for the American worker and not the CEOs of large corporations? Why do we have a system where families cannot afford to send their kids to college?”

“A lot of issues to talk about,” Sanders added. “You’ll forgive me but I’m not going to get into attacking Hillary Clinton personally.”

Mitchell did not bring up her name again.

Earlier this year, Sanders faced a similar situation during an interview with...

You can respect the man while not supporting his policy. I'm old so my comparison may not be known to you. He reminds me a bit of Hubert Humphrey.

Bernie is more conservative than he realizes. The clue: He tries to be civil with people who don't care about truth or honest debate. This experience will probably turn him into a Republican after seeing what the disgusting left is really like.

Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders: Sheepdogging for Hillary and the Democrats in 2016
Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders: Sheepdogging for Hillary and the Democrats in 2016 | Black Agenda Report

The Wheels Fell Off the Bernie Sanders Bandwagon
The Wheels Fell Off the Bernie Sanders Bandwagon

See, the Bernie campaign isn’t really about spearheading a social movement that will challenge the neoliberal agenda of the Democratic Party. Bernie refuses to take on Hillary Clinton’s corporate allegiance when it matters most – in the general election. In fact, Bernie, who has pledged not to run attack ads, will not even address her neoliberalism in the primaries. Any direct challenges need to be built outside the party, but that’s not what his campaign is all about. Instead, Bernie is helping to elect a Democrat to the White House in 2016, no matter the cost it will have on working people.


This is where the wheels on the Bernie bandwagon fall off. Despite the issues I may have with his wishy-washy foreign policy record (and they are ample), those qualms are beside the point. Sanders must break from the Democrats, pure and simple. They can’t be fixed. He must run as an independent candidate and hold Hillary accountable until the bitter end. He must work to break through the Commission on Presidential Debates and force his way onto the stage, knowing full well unless he does so, neither major party candidate will even talk about real income inequality or the corporate takeover of our democratic process. He needs to embrace the spoiler moniker, fallout be damned.


Alas, Bernie isn’t going to do any of this no matter how bad you want him to. He’s promised as much on national television. He won’t be there with his legions of supporters, tackling the barriers the two corrupt parties have set up in order to deny independent candidates access to voters. He won’t call on Hillary Clinton and her Republican opponent to drop their support for the Wall Street crooks that are fleecing America. He won’t put pressure on them at all, because his platform and ideas won’t even be in the conversation.


That’s the reality of the Bernie Sanders campaign and all those who believe he’s in it to win it. He’s not going to make the rich panic. Not for a second.

Yeah, Humphrey didn't know how whacked out liberals were either.
Remember the last time a riot broke out during their convention.
Chicago 68. The brawl got so bad the police had to be called. Have NO doubt their sh8t stinks. BLM will be AT that convention. The Black Panthers were in Chicago.

Democrats can laugh all they want but they got problems. Tons of problems from ALL directions. IF they choose Sanders they will be socialist democrats BECAUSE that is what HE is. So the moniker is theirs.

The wonks don't want him but the people do. Same issue Trump faces. The wonks want Bush like their wonks want Hillary. Bush AND Hillary need to take the bus home.

It's over for both of them and the wonks just need to start dealing with.

I saw Bernie trying to give a speech, and then some BlackLivesMatters people pushed him aside to take over the microphone.

I have never seen a more disgusting display of cowardice. How can such a man be the leader of the free world?

I KNOW Sanders is a professional politician and a liar. I saw a piece in a Mediate article where he claimed he didn't know what Hillary's position on the TPP was. Well, he was a Senator while she was the Sec. of State and responsible for the negotiators that got this deal done. I can link you to a Foreign Policy article where she wrote that she was proud of her work on this deal. So he was lying to the press about this. I know he wasn't that uninformed about her work. He was playing stupid and covering for her. He's sheep-dogging for the eventual nominee. As such, I wouldn't trust him. He is just another slimy, smarmy politician.

Likewise, he's just another shill for AIPAC talking down to patriots, telling them how their taxes should be spent. Like they don't know what is going on. Dreadful.

How can you say that when you got a clown like Trump in the debate?
