Bernie’s Campaign Manager Throws a Bomb About Hillary and Young Voters

http://bluenationreview.com/bernies-campaign-manager-throws-a-bomb-about-hillary-and-young-voters/


As we explained, the NYT article is peppered with concessions that Bernie has, indeed, gone negative—but it is this paragraph that contains a stunning admission about his own view of his 2016 strategy:

Mr. Sanders’s advisers urged him to challenge Mrs. Clinton over accepting $675,000 from Goldman Sachs for delivering three speeches, according to two Sanders advisers. Mr. Sanders, hunched over a U-shaped conference table, rejected it as a personal attack on Mrs. Clinton’s income — the sort of character assault he has long opposed. She has the right to make money, he offered.
Let that sink in.

Bernie Sanders, according to the New York Times, agrees with what we’ve been saying for months: His Wall Street dog whistle is a direct assault on Hillary’s integrity.

So when he insinuates that she is not trustworthy to the Daily News and then pretends it isn’t a character attack, he is being disingenuous — to be charitable.

Bernie is not alone of course. His campaign and surrogates are out there blasting away at Hillary and her endorsers, even when those endorsers are civil rights heroes.


And now we have this cheap shot from Jeff Weaver:

"I'm not so confident about that." Jeff Weaver on whether Bernie's young supporters would come out for Hillary.

1. We don't need them. Tad wants you to worry so

10. "We don't need them"...

...sounds so cold, though; it makes it sound as though we don't care about them and, at least in my opinion, we should.

We should be wondering why they believe all of these lies and how to fix it (not that I'm sure that's possible).

12. Have you been on twitter today?

 

New Yorkers are in shock over the interview Bernie gave. They seem very concerned and worried. I say, lets do that NY debate so people can see the contrast in regards to policy and plans

17. Hillary will do her best for everyone.

That's what Democrats do.

We don't need everyone to vote for Hillary. Just a majority. Obviously, Bernie or Bust supporters are not any kind of majority.

We don't need them to win the general election.

We have Republicans quite prepared to annoy the shit out of us - don't need any 'others' to join in (like they are allowed to do now).

We could talk about Hillary's **** but we don't want to go negative bullshit is so transparent.

6. Tad certainly won't get a job working for a Democrat.

How many losses will that have been?

4. After this campaign...

Jeff Weaver will go back to selling comic books. I wonder if comic books affected his reality/fantasy meter. Maybe he thinks that Sanders is a superhero.

5. Reason #8679 why I'm not voting for Bernie in the primary.

I don't want Jeff Weaver, Tad Devine, Nina Turner or Tulsi Gabbard anywhere near the White House or the Cabinet.

7. I don't want them near the House or Senate either.

They are like house guests who break things and then complain about the accommodations.

why would anyone trust him to make good cabinet picks?

8. Guess He Wants Millennials To Be

 

known as the generation who ushered in Donald Trump as POTUS.

If I were a Millennial I wouldn't want that dubious title.

11. Threats and blackmail and condescension and smugness and smears and hate!

 

and insults and name calling and hit-lists and stalking and man-splaining and white-splaining and insinuating and ordering and blocking and complaining and whining and finger-waving and censoring (here) ...

Those are the special tools being used by all these surrogates/endorsers and supporters. They really want us to HATE the best candidate!

FUN!!!

I PASS!!
