Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Fri Feb 21, 2020, 09:37 PM

 

Bernie is not a Democrat. He will be a Disaster if Nominated. Think of KY.

I live in a state that is reliably blue. Our electors are pretty much assured to be blue and vote for any candidate who is not Trump.

That is not the case in many places. In many "purple" states it is not the case. In KY, where we really, really need to unseat McConnell it is not true.

I will say it over and over again. Bernie is NOT a Democrat and he is a loser for Democrats.

1. It wouldn't surprise me if Bernie's support in Kentucky

 

is substantial.

Also, don't you think that Michael Moore agrees with the absolute priority of beating Trump?

Michael Moore supports Bernie Sanders.

Did he support Hillary in the general?

Credit where it's due.

9. Why is "Bernie's not a Democrat!" a thing?

 

I am a Democrat. Iíve voted Democratic my entire adult life. My first vote was against Dubya, and it was a passionate one.

I could not possibly care less that Bernie does his independent shtick. He caucuses with our party, votes for our policies, supports our candidates, and runs on our ticket so he wonít split any votes.

This whole ďNot a Democrat!Ē business is a very inside baseball thing only countenanced by hyper-partisans. The kind of people who post about politics all day on social media basically.

Rank and file voters do not actually care about this. They care about what they will do if they get sick. They care about paying for their childrenís education. They care about wringing out that last ten dollars until the next paycheck. They care about the climate and why the weatherís getting fucked up.

No one, and I do mean almost no one, cares about this. Iím not sure who itís meant to appeal to. Not only that, but this refrain has been going on for years. Does anyone not know? Why repeat it over and over and over again? Who are you trying to reach there?

Not a Democrat!

No one cares. Heís winning, if you hadnít noticed.

13. The inside baseball thing as you put it

 

Is why the LA Dodgers have sucked in the home stretch, come on people get your shit together. Real people play ball.

"The Los Angeles Dodgers have been eliminated from the postseason for the last seven years running. They haven't won the World Series since 1988. Let that sink in. In all seven seasons they won the National League West, this season with a franchise record 106 victories"

19. Sanders: I don't consider myself a Democrat

 

"No, I'm an Independent," Sanders said when asked by MSNBC's Chris Hayes whether he now identifies as a Democrat.

15. You are not going to convince the people that are convinced

 

Last edited Sat Feb 22, 2020, 05:00 PM - Edit history (1)

that Bernie is the second coming, even when his 30+ year record don't remotely point to that. They are convinced, like the young people coming out for McGovern and the Hippies who didn't get that most of America looked askance on what they saw as a leadpipe cinch. They are convinced, like the progressives who refused to fully back Carter in 80. They are convinced, like those that claimed a left Mondale was too conservative in 84. They are convinced, like those that chose Dukakis over candidates that had a chance to beat Bush I. They are convinced as they explain to me WHY 72, 80, 84, 88 would have been different only if x happened. They are convinced even as I saw the debacles happen with my eyes in real time.
