to clinch the nomination, I agree.
If NJ doesn't clinch it for Secretary Clinton ... California will.
Believing anything else is #BernieMath that has no basis in reality. You'll notice that Superdelegates are abandoning BS and changing to Secretary Clinton ... don't you?
The networks will call it when NJ closes. Just like they did with Obama when he had the majority of delegates (supers included). CA will be a footnote.
but being that all the Democratic Primaries are proportional delegation ... it would be difficult to clinch it early. And NOBODY said she would clinch it by Super Tuesday ... it would have been MATHEMATICALLY IMPOSSIBLE, being that not enough delegates would have been awarded. But go ahead and live in whatever fantasy world you want to, it's easier that way for you.
in can help that.
No doubt you really need to pretend as much... nt
(All words were two syllables or less, so I figured you've got this one)
Hubris appears to work as well as petulant and irrelevant responses regarding hubris.
Wouldn't be surprised if many of those Sanders protesters are closet Trump supporters who are just stirring trouble.
Your verbiage is not acceptable as characterization of the majority of Oregonian Democrats.
Not realizing or caring that those violent protests directly resulted in Nixon, Reagan, Bush I & Bush II.
Coincidence I'm sure. That they always favor Clinton . . . Coincidence I'm sure.
They don't always favor Clinton. The bigger danger is to assume that its fellow Democrats who are doing this and let Republicans continue to depress the vote.
It could happen.
Not realizing that he's not saying anything controversial or damning (and when he has done that, like calling Clinton unqualified, he walked it back as I predicted).
Those evil nasty BernieBros will be like bikers on meth. Not worth the physical risk...stay home.
expect them to show up including the ones who have flipped from BS to HRC and will continue to do so.
we started to notice that awhile ago, but then Hillary sought out the Bush, Rubio, and Cruz donors and confirmed it for us. She can't be trusted. She told us of her unwiligness to fight for minimum wage increases, and her unwillingness to fight for single payer. We know she and you guys have little fight in you. But hey, it's her turn.
Hopefully a massive militarized police presence and strictly controlled free speech zones far from the convention will reduce any assembly of citizens to a minor distraction that the media can entirely ignore.
Yet another reason why I am a sensible centrist for Clinton.
After all, they've already thrown dozens of chairs. There's no telling what they'll do next!
As loyal Americans and Democrats, we simply can't afford to find out!
Trust us. She's for your own good!
have been arrested and are now in jail awaiting trial.
The jails must be packed.
They are seeding the idea. I have been to many demonstrations and the source of the unrest comes from outsiders and undercover folks. The majority do not want this.
Where is that video, by the way?
In case it wasn't clear, there was no violence.
posted on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr etc.
These pieces of human garbage are lying to my family members and I have to spend an inordinate amount of time straightening them out, which is easy in terms of argument, difficult in terms of undoing the brainwashing of the libertarian wingnuts pretending to be liberals. If there is violence, the wingnut libertarians are the one's promoting it. Sadly, people under 30 are susceptible to this propaganda.
Are you in favor of having wingnut libertarians infiltrating the Democratic party? I'm not. And I despise the lying too - enough propaganda!
...and Bernie or Bust - how did it come to this mixture of right-wing anarchist nihilism and Bernie or Bust? This from a feminist who is extremely liberal.
Especially when one must generate plausible sounding falsehoods to do it.
I hear he has a mean right hook, especially when punching female Bernie supporters. He'd be perfect for the job.
has some pull with him, as does Hillary's adopted BIL
He currently works for a private equity firm in Dubai. BTW, he donates equally to the Republican Party and the Green Party. Wonder why?
Bernie and his supporters will seem like Pink Fluffy Bunnies in retrospect once the General gets going.
I don't know how your delicate constitution will be able to handle that.
Should look great in the national press. I am sure also the Mr. Trump will not hesitiate to make use of it.
No, not really, you should be enjoying the rights of assembly and speech. Unless you really think we should be "brought to heel"
It is their devout hope to see such things. They are not going to get their wish.
There is little concern inside the convention.
Who are they going to fight outside, Trump supporters? Not a chance. They will both be protesting the same thing.
Doesn't stop zealots who want disrupt and have media coverage....sanders hardcore supporters are of the same mindset as those who bring riots to WTO meetings...they care about little else but their own twisted agenda...
Sanders has no control and exhibits no real leadership and runs away from responsibility....he is a fraud
All the endless aggressive, goading posts have one single objective, to cause division and unrest in the Party.
This week a rich, famous Hillary supporting man got arrested for assaulting a woman. So who is actually being violent, getting arrested and running about suggesting there will be more of the same in Philly? Hillary supporters, that's who.
I think what you are doing is repulsive and harmful to the Party.
You're trying to combine one man who acted stupidly on his own volition, with the behavior of Sanders official convention delegates... no dice. You're complaining because your man was out maneuvered and out played by the better candidate, deal with it.
It was always Bernie's race to win or loose on his own merits. If he's not performing as advertised, don't blame Hillary's success for his shortcomings. Stop whining that you're being picked on for betting on the wrong horse, and go pound on the guy who failed to live up to your expectations.
was like an open invitation to bring that violent behavior to the convention floor. Sanders campaign has stalled in 2nd place limbo, and he's becoming increasingly bitter and vindictive. His angry shock troops have nothing to lose by creating chaos and disrupting the nominating proceedings. They've certainly had plenty of practice interrupting Trump's speeches and intimidating Hillary's fans, like the crowds who were waiting in line to see her at that college in LA.
His mouthpiece was pumping up and enraging the drunken mob in Nevada.
Do you really think they will let the democratic convention in Philly escape their little "revolution" with all the media coverage there?
Democrats have got to realize NOW that Sanders is not running against Trump and the republicans...he is running against the democratic party!
convention. Have you watched the hours and hours of video documentation of that convention? Did you see violence occur? Do you know who made a death threat? If you do, could you provide the evidence of who that person was? This is an extreme hardball strategy I see being played out by the Hillary Clinton campaign right now. I have family members who were going to vote for Clinton in California until they saw the news reports featuring Roberta Gustav Lange. They are totally disgusted as am I.
Its huge! The convention venue is a big sports arena that seats over 20K, so security police couldn't possibly cover every nook and cranny. Sanders has already said he going there to fight, and his troops will carry out his wishes. Stay safe if you go, or at least have a fast exit plan if civil order breaks down.
I bet some of the Hillary supporters who are reading this thread are beginning to wonder just what kind of a campaign they've been supporting. Bernie supporters tried to tell them but of course they didn't believe us because we are in the opposition camp. But I bet once they view some of the Hillary posts in this thread they will start to wonder if maybe we were right.
Suddenly it's assumed that I, a 67 year old female Bernie supporter, am arming myself to the teeth and heading off to Philly to make a point. Get a grip people. The media is pimping this story and every time it's retold the facts become more overblown.
after the Nevada convention bernie supporters are really out of control.....we do not need another Chicago convention.
of the Democratic Party.
Is that too much to ask?
How about trying to include those who'd like to be part of your political party rather than changing your primary tactics and trying to attract Republicans for fuck's sake!!!!!
That would, it seems to me, be the smart move. But I haven't been able to count on the Democratic Party to be smart since at least the days of Ronald Reagan, who apparently frightened them so much they keep wetting their bed.
Oh, and firing Debbie Wasserman Schultz would be a great strategic move. I know it would keep her from finishing her plans decorating Hillary's float, but that wasn't what holding a national political convention was supposed to be about anyway.
No true Bernie guy is bringing any violence anywhere. Paid disrupters may though.
HRC supporters are trying to make it so 'airtight' that folks will be passing out due to lack of oxygen...
to restrict their participation.
The free speech zone will be in Ohio, somewhere.
Boy, I'm sure glad I'm not a Republican! Terra! Al-Qaeda! ISIS! Sanders supporters!
"Security detail to sector three! A Washington delegate just touched a chair!"
can't believe you folks are actually trying to incite violence with this kind of crap.
