Obama denounces violence at Nevada’s Democratic convention

Sad that this has to be said at a Democratic convention

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/280213-white-house-political-disputes-never-justify-violence

“The president on a number of occasions has spoken out against violence and has certainly said a political dispute like this can never be used to justify violence or a threat of violence,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters.

Earnest said disputes like the one in Nevada should be resolved peacefully and that the “expectation the president has is that there will be a strong commitment to that principle of nonviolence.”

14. "do violence to" is a common idiom. Search it for more explanation.

 

Or check a thesaurus if you have one around.

6. We "don't do cowering" either, Obama.

He should try and remember when he had a spine. Before he sold us out.

7. There is no evidence of violence but, if you're worried, stop cheating and invoking anger.

15. You mean the cheating that the Sanders campaign has officially challenged?

Of course he hasn't. Why is that?

a. It doesn't exist

or

b. He doesn't care enough about the "revolution" to bother with it.

16. The cheating vis a vis election fraud and voter suppression, much of it caught on video.

17. I guess Bernie doesn't care enough about the "revolution" to challenge then!

How super-sad for the revolutionaries.

9. How about a strong commitment to the principles of a democratic process?


Of course not. Anything is okay to elect the Corporatist.

13. Thank you President Obama.

Sad that this even had to be said but obviously the POTUS has WAY more integrity than SBS. I bet he didn't run away from a microphone and ask his handlers and wait for them to spoon-feed him his thoughts & statements first.
