9. Bernie Sanders' Ugly Campaigning Is Bad for Democrats -- and Great for Trump

 

While Biden has been gracious to Bernie, the fact of the matter is that Bernie happily engages in scorched earth campaigning. Biden is not the first, and not the last. This is why Bernie is bad for the Democratic party. He elevates himself by tearing everyone around him as noted in the following article tracing the Bernie campaigns early attacks on potential rivals.

https://gen.medium.com/bernie-sanders-bad-attitude-is-bad-for-democrats-and-great-for-trump-bd0ac7376146

I never caught Betomania, but it’s hard to ignore the larger, more obvious pattern — that this has happened to every candidate who has gathered enough buzz to pose a challenge to Sanders, deserving or not. I can believe that O’Rourke is a sizzle in search of a steak. But I find it harder to believe that O’Rourke is the face of Big Oil, and Elizabeth Warren embraces neoliberal capitalism at its most rapacious, and Kamala Harris is the carceral state incarnate, and Cory Booker is popular only due to racial tokenism, and Kirsten Gillibrand is in deep with Big Tobacco, and Amy Klobuchar, I don’t know, never brings a hot dish. They haven’t gotten to her yet.
The problem is not the reporting on these politicians’ individual sins, some of which is correct, and some of which, like Sirota’s freakout, is wildly exaggerated. It’s not even the “boy who cried wolf” quality of hearing so many similar denunciations in a row, though it is increasingly tough to take any one hit piece seriously. It’s the implication that these errors are unilaterally disqualifying and should outweigh any good the candidates might do. There is no acknowledgment, after 2016, of just how dangerous that attitude might be or of what other forces might be arrayed against the candidates in question. The decision to tie Gillibrand to the fact that she represented tobacco companies as a young lawyer, for example, took place before she called for Al Franken’s resignation and her candidacy was nuked from orbit by powerful donors. Sanders’ core supporters went for Gillibrand as hard as possible, right out of the gate, not realizing that institutional sexism would eventually do their work for them. Again.

The lingering anger many Clinton supporters feel at Sanders isn’t because he ran against her or because he ran with the goal of pushing her to the left. Again, many of the ideas Sanders has nudged into the American mainstream are good ones. That mistrust stems from how reckless Sanders was with the anger he riled up. Long after he knew he’d lost, he continued to call Clinton “unqualified” or insist she was the head of a massive conspiracy. He knew it could do no good, and he should have seen that the dangerous toll of his negative messaging — the death threats to Democratic Party officials and reporters, the demolished coalitions and names dragged through the mud, the ever-increasing threat that if there was no Bernie, the nation itself would bust — was rising. Yet he appeared shocked that he could not undo the damage; even Bernie Sanders got booed for not supporting Bernie Sanders.

To destroy one rival this way may be regarded as a misfortune. To destroy them all looks like carelessness. It looks like a candidate who has not yet learned to push his advantage in any other way than going negative, even though any of his rivals, should they defeat Sanders, will be the only protection we have against a second Trump term. To be clear: If Sanders is the nominee, I will vote for him. The good he might do outweighs the harm. It’s just not clear that Sanders knows how to say that about anyone else. The viciousness of the 2016 campaign may just have been a mistake, even if it was a bad one. If the pattern continues into 2020, we will have to call it something much worse.

11. Bernie Will Go Scorched Earth Once It Is Down to Two People

 

You see Bernie ramping up his attacks on the "Democratic Establishment." Bernie is trying to poison the well and set it up so that he once again can claim that he was cheated if does not win the nomination or falls behind. This is why Fox News happily pushes Bernie's complaints about the "Democratic Establishment." Conversely, because he gets so much free airplay and attention from attacking Democrats, Bernie continues to do so. It is a vicious cycle.

Tulsi Gabbard is an example of someone who bought into the temptation of attacking Democrats Bernie style, but taking it even further.

than the 2016 primary. At least if it's Biden v Warren, it should be somewhat lessened, although I could see Warren being attacked viciously for "betrayal" as they'd see it.

Not a pleasant time ahead.

That number might improve over time... fortunately, however, Bernie WILL BE the Democratic nominee and sworn into office as our next President.

19. Bernie thinks Republicans will vote for him and that before him Democrats had no ideas.

 

"So if you're a conservative Republican, you want health care. If you're a conservative Republican, you want to be able to send your kid to college. And I think the issues that we have been talking about in this campaign ... those issues have resonated with the American people. And in fact ... they have become kind of mainstream now at least in the Democratic Party, when they were seen as pretty out there four yeas ago. So I think when you talk about raising the minimum wage, when I think you talk about making educational opportunities available to all regardless of income, where you're talking about cancelling student debt, when you talk about health care for all as a human right, Medicare for all, when you talk about climate change, criminal justice reform, immigration reform, sensible gun policy in this country, a woman's right to control her own body and many other issues, those issues do resonate with a whole lot of Americans and we bring those people together around those issues."

How many times do we have to say that universal health care, higher wages and worker's rights, affordable education, climate change, immigration reform, criminal justice reform, gun control, pro choice ARE ALL DEMOCRATIC IDEAS. No, Republicans did not vote for Trump because of economic hardship and Democrats ignoring them. How many times.

"I don't believe that the [way to win] this election is to just speak to Republican women in the suburbs. That's one theory. And I think many of those women will vote for me, because they are appalled ... about Trump's personal behavior and his temperament. I think we can win many of them. Not all of them. But on the other hand, the key to this election is can we get millions of young people who have never voted before into the political process, many working people who understand that Trump is a fraud, can we get them voting? ... But my God, if you're a Donald Trump and you got Biden having voted for the war in Iraq, Biden having voted for these terrible ... trade agreements, Biden having voted for the bankruptcy bill. Trump will eat his lunch."

What?

21. The reality is that sanders will not be the nominee... thank goodness!!

 

Polls, poll averages, endorsements numbers don’t add up for sanders, but.... his supporters just don’t see it.

From here on du where he polls at 8%, to 15-16% with AA voters, poll averages that show him behind by double digits.

Biden is right, he will be the one to end the madness and still be gracious enough to invite the independent senator from VT for lunch... or dessert
