They're the ultimate fair-weather fans.
they do, but then I remember it's an active choice they make, not something outside of their own control. No one is forcing them to apply such a ridiculous litmus test to everything and everyone.
They can question Warren all they want, but the fact remains, she's an elected official who has run for and won office, and 99.99% of her haters are internet nobodies who have run for and won absolutely nothing.
It actually shows what little faith they have in people they champion. They are bandwagoners. Instead of thinking that Elizabeth Warren would be a good asset to keep Hillary Clinton to the left the way Bernie pulled her and not let her tack to the right, they throw her completely under the bus. Its disgusting and immature, and quite frankly kind of stupid. Its all about impulse and in the moment with so many of them. They can't stop for a moment in their raw "now now now" emotions to think that this could be a really good thing; to have someone like Elizabeth Warren be a big influence in a Clinton administration and to hold her feet to the fire regarding the things she said during the primary season.
... when you have a cult of personality, instead of a political movement. They might as well just start a religion with Bernie as the messiah and get it over with.
Someone posted in that thread that Warren could have been threatened and that's why she had to endorse Hillary!
he was getting push back on twitter about the "votes in the South don't count" and he blasted them all with something like.. "don't forget to pick up your check from David Brock"..
When you have some surrogates like that pushing BS.. what's a follower to do?
this is why I'll never feel sorry for him and the hate he left in his wake.

When you get that drilled into you 24/7.. what's a poor follower to do?
Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders will ride into the Senate like kings and queens and rule over the Democratic caucus and Hillary Clinton.
I didn't have the heart to tell them that Bernie is going to be back to his backbench within after the election. He could resign and lead a liberal think tank, but that would require him to do more than give speeches.
Bernie wants to back bench this term, then i bet he will retire and make bank giving speeches. The work to money ratio is low, and he has the speech all ready. No snark, I bet money that is what he'll do.
I would like Warren to be in the Senate where she d0es a lot of good, but if not, I"d like her to be Cabinet-level, not VP. I think she will be wasted there.
Its easy for Democrats to attack Mr. Trump, Turner said. You dont get any brownie points from me and other progressives for getting into a Twitter war with Mr. Donald Trump. Thats easy.
But when the fight was hard for Sen. Bernie Sanders, where was Sen. Warren?
Not even close, Nina.. oh and btw.. @ which point do you consider yourself Not "a truth teller"? Just sayin'
they want to build a movement. They might want to come and talk to us POC first. They might want to spend some time talking to us asking us what we want. Here's a hint, while having a secure future is great, not everything is about money. Had Bernie built into his platform, a plan to take led out of our water, a plan to deal with the police who hate us black people, a plan to make sure we're on equal footing with everyone else, a plan to help our schools, a plan to make sure we have hospitals we can go to within a twenty minute drive (I live in the country) a plan to help expand Medicaid then I would have been more excited to throw my support around him.
But instead, he made everything about Wall Street and money which doesn't fly with me.
