How can you have a political revolution when you willy, nilly write off states?

SC, GA, TN, ARK..all don't matter or don't count. YET, we're going to have a "political revolution" which will force Paul Ryan to pass Single payer.

26. Did Obama win without the South against MCCAIN and Romney?

And, since it is proportional, yss, definitely we can have a political revolution without winning southern states. But Oklahoma is southern ain't it?

4. Those states wrote him off.

 

Do you think if he had spent more on ads or spent more time there it would have affected his delegate count? No. He is not a stupid man. Some people are slow to see what is right before their eyes. He is going to states where people pay more attention to what is going on in Washington and see the NEED for change IMMEDIATELY. Go Bernie! After tonight things will be much rosier!

36. No, BS wrote the states off.. it's up to the candidate to make their case in all 50 states. Hillary

doesn't write them off

She takes nothing for granted, either.

It's too bad you're insulting voters in Massachusetts, Alabama, Arkansas, Texas, TN, Georgia, Virginia, and American Samoa, Iowa, Nevada, and South Carolina.. do please proceed though.

7. This is the question voters were asking on NPR today. Here & Now was in TN today, and BS has never..

been there. He sent his wife, who had to cancel the event. They were asking why BS didn't work for their support.

13. Bernie lives in a bubble.

He's been in politics for decades, but has he built any coalitions? Has he built any alliances? The answer is no. He surrounds himself with people who agree with him 100% and never ventures out.

12. Sanders so far has failed to appeal to a broad cross section of the Democratic Party.

And his revolution has fallen short of what he has led everyone to believe. He has attracted the youth, but they are not enough to get the nomination.

20. Well, ya see, pal ...

Those "yokels" each have one vote in the GE - same as the "sophisticated folk" in Vermont and NH.

So if Bernie ever got close to being the nominee (pause for laughter), he'd need those "yokel" votes.

... when Bernie came out as the "candidate for the People", he actually didn't mean everyone.

If you read the fine print on his website, it says:

"Revolutionaries Wanted: Residents of some states need not apply."

28. Lissen, they can't even figure out how to register voters on their own behalf at those rallies...

They keep complaining that the DNC isn't doing it for them -- you know, the evil DNC they are revolting against? That same DNC is supposed to show up at their rallies with the card tables and state registration forms. Otherwise the Sanders supporters are being repressed and oppressed and it's Hillary's fault.

The ignorance and entitlement are revolting all right.

32. Oh is that what that thread was about in GDP? Another complaint that real workers...

...didn't hold them by the hand? They spend an awful lot of energy complaining that the people they are revolting against aren't helping them in their cause.

They are allegedly Democrats -- they should at least TRY to learn how the system works. Mineral Man alone has used up countless pixels trying to TEACH them how it's done, but the response is never thanks, just assertions that the Revolution has come and that magically all their dreams will come true. MM has the patience of a saint, imo, and he keeps trying.

But he did win 13 delegates in Vermont!

This nomination is not close. Giant piles on denial on the other side.
