Sat Jan 30, 2016, 11:36 AM

 

Why has Bernie not mentioned Hillary's bold faced lie on being under enemy fire? That is ligitimate.

That is not 'going negative'. Anyone who would do that....who was First Lady, AND voted for the damn war, is just not acceptable. It's just not. Why was this left out? It damaged Lara Logan and Brian Williams, and rightfully so! Just because it was in the news when ithappened, is not an answer. Why has this not been brought up to remind the voters?

Character matters.

2. Their lying smear machine would go into overdrive...if it's not already. Bernie truly is trying to

 

do what he said...stay out of it. He's a gentleman...except when he's airing videos of her last persona's image. I think the wondering may be doing her more harm than what the pace of the investigation has...just guessing, however. More reason not to trust her.

3. Because Bernie doesn't do stupid shit

 

And because that would clearly be correctly seen as a negative attack and he'd be rightfully hammered for it.

7. I'd think some of the vets he's fought for might bring that up.

The only objection I have to Sanders bringing it up is that it comes right out of the GOPuke playbook. No point in getting down into the gutter with them.

6. Doncha know anything said about her is negative. Especially the truth. LOL

Tweety spent 15 minutes last night trying to get 3 people to say the Goldman Sachs ad was negative and no one agreed with him.

8. Exactly. If the voters were reminded, Hillary would lose Monday for sure. And she should.

10. The FUNNEST Hardball show ever.

He seemed totally nonplussed to have three realists on the show with him. I'd bet you'll never see them again. Tweety, like so many of the talking heads, really has a difficult time dealing with reality. Same as Mrs. Greenspan.

Of course, as someone pointed out, everyone of them will have to pay higher taxes if Sanders wins. Not that something like that matters to them, of course.

(how do you use that sarcasm icon anyway?)

I find it refreshing.

22. Yes, he's made this very clear on many occassions.

You don't build a movement by tearing down an opponent

You build a movement much the way you sell the construction of a new house... you convince the customers that the images and floor plan of the new building are what the customer wants.

Sanders is working to convince people that government of the people, by the people, within a mixed economy that protects the people from the rapacious tendencies of free-capitalist markets is the thing they want to build.

Tearing down HRC contributes nothing to what will be, regardless of the primary outcome, Sanders legacy on American politics.

That was a right wing anti-Bill Clinton bumper sticker in the 90s. It was all the rage for the mouth foaming wing nuts.

15. Because it's irrelevant to his campaign.

Bernie Sanders knows that merely accusing an opponent of something that happened long ago does no good for his own campaign. Besides, he has all sorts of people who are happy to attack his opponent. Sadly, they're doing him no good either.

It's a pity that people are posting this ancient stuff. It wont help.

21. Results of your Jury Service

 

On Sat Jan 30, 2016, 11:54 AM an alert was sent on the following post:

Why has Bernie not mentioned Hillary's bold faced lie on being under enemy fire? That is ligitimate.
http://www.democraticunderground.com/12511096591

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Is this person *ligitimate*? Bernie is not stupid and he'd have to be to bring this up. This sounds like OBVIOUS shit-stirring to create a DU fight. It's not a "ligitimate" issue-Clinton retracted the story years ago. What it is, though, is an attempt to make Bernie supporters on DU look like Bernie Bros. Who benefits from that? Bernie doesn't do stupid shit and this poster is trolling to encourage stupid shit behavior from his supporters.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Sat Jan 30, 2016, 12:11 PM, and the Jury voted 1-6 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: The responses to the poster are handling this issue appropriately. It happened, but not relevant today. That seems to be the verdict. You will create a bigger problem for your candidate if it appears like you're trying to shut down discussion right before a major election.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: This won't get hidden, sadly. This garbage is typical DU, new posters and all. Not impressed.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: These attacks are all too common from some Sanders supporters but I will be the bigger man and vote to leave it alone.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: This is a bad alert for a couple of reasons. First, since when is posting a reference to an actual untruth, documented and for which Clinton herself acknowledged that she "misspoke" as "disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate"? Finally, the petty tone of snotty superiority in the alert because the poster misspelled a word speaks volumes about the person who alerted.
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Hillaryous!

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

I was Juror #6.
