What’s not to like about Bernie Sanders? Edward Lambert | July 10, 2015 1:43 pm Politics Comments (9) | Digg Facebook Twitter |
He’s unelectable because the policies he is proposing only poll in the mid-60s nationally. So that is why we don’t like him.
No wait! That is why the Very Serious People in the Beltway don’t like him. Because he puts the ‘Bull!’ in the BS! that has them believing they simply represent the Broad Center of America and by are by NO MEANS the ‘Elite’.
Actually I don’t know of much evidence that there really exists a huge pool of people who don’t like Bernie Sanders. Sure there are a lot of people who have never heard of Bernie Sanders and among them a lot of people who think that ‘socialist’ means some cross being Stalin and Adolph and are fully prepared to hate someone carrying that label. But it is far from clear that people will actually allow that label to define the Bernie Sanders and just as importantly the policies of that Bernie Sanders that they will come to know. Unless the Villagers have their say and toss Bernie into the Lost Valley of False Equivalence.
Is it really possible that Sanders will catch fire so brightly that EVERYONE feels the BERN? Well I wouldn’t bet money on it. Mainly because I am dead broke. But I am not seeing any reason to believe that exposure to the actual Bernie Sanders is going to turn people off. I mean what? Because he could use a hair stylist?
Sanders is not a forged birth certificate, illegal African, Muslim, Socialist like Obama………………………
Also unlike Obama he will get his agenda implemented.
No Sanders is just a poutine covered with maple syrup lovin’ Trotskyite who is just dying to confine every Freedom Lovin’ Freedom Fry Eatin’ Gadsden Flag Flyin’ ‘Murican to a camp in Northern Quebec where the guards force the inmates to beg for their curd covered taters in Francois.
At least that is what I heard at the counter of the Cracker Barrel in Murfreesboro Tenn last Tuesday.
But hey, what cracker or redneck WOULDN”T love poutine? So effectiveness shouldn’t be an issue here.
Well, there is that gun control thing.
He has snagged some F ratings from the NRA.
Hopefully even Gun Control Advocates understand the difference between someone owning a shotgun in Northern Vermont and someone owning a Pistol Grip AK-47 with taped 30 round clips in Chicago.
There really are parts of this country where both the Sheriff and Animal Control are an hour or two away and people don’t want to sit by while a Bear eats their cat for a snack.
I don’t think the Brady bill covered shotguns in northern Vermont.
Well maybe you should have been a little more specific in your previous comment. Few people at AB are mind-readers.
What is getting my Holstein is the national Dem party’s treatment of Bernie and those candidates like him. The latest attack by a supposed liberal journalist at MSNBC (which is why the journalist is considered liberal) of Alan Grayson.
Seems the National Dem’s would rather have a repub turned dem than a true dem.
I don’t know, but I think people are waking up some. They may not know how to put into words what is wrong, or understand how they got to where they are, but they know they have been left behind and that the whole trickle down, cut, austerity, work harder, get educated, blah, blah, blah has not made them feel happy, secure or even hopeful.
The man will be 75 on election day. If elected, he would be the oldest president to take office.
He’s too old to be president. It would be a huge mistake to put his fingers on the buttons.
