1. I read the second linked article and am surprised Huffpo allowed

a post critical of Saint Bernie to be published. It was quite a good read however.

3. From the second article ...

 

Instead, his primary comment on international affairs seems to be to reiterate and reiterate and reiterate that he had voted against the Iraq War in 2002. When forced to discuss other matters, he quickly bobbles. In the most recent debate, he seemed unsure about whether North Korea has a single or multiple dictators, and then managed to take both positions in a matter of minutes about whether the U.S. should negotiate without preconditions with other countries.

Now, Bernie Sanders is not the first candidate to not be an expert on even something as significant as foreign affairs. But what's deeply troublesome here is how he seems to have no respect for knowledge on it. It's visible in the almost-disdain he expresses for Hillary Clinton's experience on the matter. She had been Secretary of State for four years, but he has been in Congress for more than two decades. Exactly when does he think he'll have sufficient experience to speak fluently on foreign policy?


So very true. Bernie Sanders needs no knowledge of anything. Whatever he says or wants will just magically happen.

4. The Kushner piece hit the nail on the head

Bernie, what should we do in Syria?

Vote against the Iraq war!

What about ISIS?

Vote against the Iraq War!

North Korea!

Iraq War!

5. "disrespect for expertise"

is Bernie's campaign in a nutshell. Especially if you don't bend the knee and support his unicorns and rainbows.

6. One girl admitted on CNN that it was all about the free college.

I guess she thinks she is really going to get that.

7. The thing is, Hillary's plan is much more likely to be enacted.

And Hillary is much for likely to get elected.

So if young people really want help with college, they are much more likely to get it if they help get Hillary elected.

8. If Obama wanted to help Hillary

He'd issue an executive order cutting college tuition. The Bernie "movement" would wither and die like the anti-vietnams War movement did after Nixon suspended the draft.

9. Number 2. Bernie is kinda the flip side of the Republican "I'm not a scientist" coin.

Let's just say, Sanders' stats are pretty unbalanced...haha.
