Where's that thread(s)?

Okay, somewhere between midnight and three a.m. I read a couple of posts that listed the times when Sanders expressed dislike/disdain for Democrats. Now I can't find either one.

Help, please?

Is Bernie Sanders committed to the success of the Democratic Party?

The Sanders campaign's lawsuit against the DNC and unwillingness to fund-raise for the party have me questioning his commitment to the success of the Democratic Party.
Here are some of his past quotes and behavior. You decide.


"It would be hypocritical of me to run as a Democrat because of the things I have said about the party."

“Why should we work within the Democratic Party if we don’t agree with anything the Democratic Party says?”

“You don’t change the system from within the Democratic Party.”

“My own feeling is that the Democratic Party is ideologically bankrupt.”

“I am not now, nor have I ever been, a liberal Democrat,”

“I am not a Democrat, period.”

"The Democratic and Republican parties are tweedle-dee and tweedle-dum, they both adhere to an ideology of greed and vulgarity."

“I am extremely proud to be an independent.”

“The fact that I am not a Democrat gives me the freedom to speak out on the floor of the House, to vote against both the Democratic and Republican proposals.”

"The Democratic Party is ideologically bankrupt, they have no ideology. Their ideology is opportunism.”

5. I don't know about last night

but here's a thread on the subject
http://www.democraticunderground.com/12511248302

Vermont senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders once said that he was "physically nauseated" by a speech made by President John F. Kennedy when Sanders was a young man, because Kennedy's "hatred for the Cuban Revolution was so strong."

"Kennedy was young and appealing and ostensibly liberal," Sanders reminisced in a 1987 interview with The Gadfly, a student newspaper at the University of Vermont. "But I think at that point, seeing through Kennedy, and what liberalism was, was probably a significant step for me to understand that conventional politics or liberalism was not what was relevant."

In the same interview, he also criticized Jesse Jackson's decision to try and affect change by "working within the Democratic party" and offered some pointed remarks about Walter Mondale.

Sanders told The Gadfly that endorsing the Democratic ticket in 1984 and "campaigning for Mondale was a very difficult thing to do."
