if Baltimore wasn't the right time, when is Sanders' big national security speech?

ignoring the issue doesn't make it go away. just wait until the 3 am call ads start up.

12. Thanks for your intellectual honesty

 

It would be helpful if we all could do more than knee-jerk responses, and instead actually criticize posts of those who support our candidates when they deserve criticism too.

8. That's not what I'm saying

I'm say that it's unlikely that Bernie wins any new voters by doing so.

He's obviously not as comfortable talking about those issues as he is talking about his economic platform. Also, it's not as though he's going to convince people that don't already support him that he's as capable as Hillary on these issues. So what would he gain at this point by doing so? He's gotten this far by staying on message, may as well stay the course.

Don't forget that the Sabders campaign blew a gasket just before the last debate because the moderator added a question about Paris.

10. The real question is when, if ever, will

most people figure out the "keep us safe" talk is unexamined crap, and the real issue is rejecting the fear and looking at real issues.

I am glad that at least one candidate isn't buying into the hysteria of you and the Republicans.

20. When there is a terror attack in the US

 

a Presidential candidate has a DUTY to address people's fears and provide solutions. Not run away.

That is what "being Presidential" is all about. Sanders is just not ready. Perhaps he will be ready in about 10 years.

41. Fleischer didn't make speeches

 

He used terrorism as a propaganda tool to instill fear and stifle dissent. Neocon 101.

I don't smoke from the 'Be afraid, be very afraid TERROR!!' crack pipe. Never will. You see, this sort of thing works on right wingers because they tend to have enlarged amygdala which controls emotions and fear. Liberals? Not so much.

Right wing brain left wing brain

Hope that clears it up for ya.

30. This is exactly what Hillary said about Obama in 2008.

Didn't work then. Won't work today.

Tired ol talking point with a proven track record of failure.

Some new schtick is desperately needed.

How about, "Bernie eats lima beans with this hands."

No one bought that nonsense. Obama did win that election, no?

I doubt that someone would actually try to position Bernie as someone who can't handle national security issues--simply because, for one event, he wanted to stay focused on domestic issues our of respect for the pastors with whom he was meeting.

No one would really suggest something so silly, right?

Because the MSM are hell-bent (Hill-bent?) on ignoring those issues. That doesn't mean they aren't urgent.

Honestly, your OP comes across as intentionally inflammatory.

It makes no sense.

It's almost as if you don't really understand the situation or dynamics or politics and simply wanted to throw up inflammatory nonsense hoping it would pass as legit for a Clinton supporter.
