Oh Snap - Atlanta Mayor Responds to BS Claim Race Relations

CNN)The Democratic mayor of Atlanta criticized Bernie Sanders on Friday for claiming at a recent Democratic debate that race relations would be better if he is president than they are under President Barack Obama.

Kasim Reed, a Hillary Clinton supporter, told CNN's Erin Burnett that the claim was "dismissive and disrespectful" of the nation's first African-American president and that Sanders' rhetoric on Thursday reminded him of a county commissioner. Reed went on to challenge Sanders' record, saying, "Show me in the Senate where he led some broad coalition to get something significant accomplished ... He is running to be the standard-bearer of the Democratic Party, although he just became a Democrat within the last year." http://www.cnn.com/2016/02/12/politics/kasim-reed-bernie-sanders-atlanta/index.html

5. The last poll I saw from WSB had Hillary ahead 63% to 21% for Sanders....

With 15% undecided. I think it's safe to say that Atlanta and Georgia is Hillary friendly territory.

9. Sanders wouldn't be a target for all the haters

Sanders wouldn't be a target for all the haters so maybe things would be better.

But then again the bernbros would be going after people like John Lewis and other civil rights leaders Who didn't feel the been, only the water hoses and police batons.

11. That was ridiculous.. and just an awful insult to those Milions who appreciate President

Obama.. including me.

Ronald Klain ‏@RonaldKlain 1d1 day ago

Sanders ranks himself better than @POTUS on race relations, than @HillaryClinton on women's issues, than Ted Kennedy on human rights. Wow

16. Being the narcissist that he is, his campaign theme song should be,

"I Love Me for Sentimental Reasons". I don't much care for Senator Sanders for may reasons. One is I think he may have entered the race to just be a pain in the ass and then his ego took over. The quote that comes to mind, "You love me, you really love me" but should not be taken seriously.

14. "Show me in the Senate where he led some broad coalition to get something significant accomplished .

He is running to be the standard-bearer of the Democratic Party, although he just became a Democrat within the last year."

"Reed also criticized Sanders for claiming he would be a better president for women than Clinton".
