Couldn't be more clear, Bernie is fighting a three point war.

The party, The Hillary campaign, and the media.

Don't moan to me about Hillary's problems, Hillary group!

3. I would say four points

the fourth being the best interests of the American people...Bernie could not care less about anyone but himself.

4. Whereas Hillary is all benevolence?

I'm sure that will come as a surprise to these the people she bombed in the Middle East, the mom and pop business owners she drove out of business while working with WalMart, the families that have been torn apart by targeting communities of color with school-to-prison pipelines, etc., etc., etc.

5. Phil Gramm Salutes You!

Immediately upon his exit from the US Senate, Phil Gramm found work at Swiss bank UBS as its Vice Chairman. Now semi-retired, Gramm today works in the Wealth Management department, where he brought on former President Bill Clinton, former pretzeldent George W Bush, Democratic strategist and one fun guy James Carville, plus other Buy Partisan luminaries.



SOURCE: http://financialservicesinc.ubs.com/revitalizingamerica/SenatorPhilGramm.html


Who would have thought President Clinton and Sen. Gramm -- the two key figures in repealing Glass-Steagall -- would work together in Wealth Management at a Swiss bank?

Since the New Deal, Glass-Steagall had protected the US taxpayer from the Wall Street casino by law. After its repeal, the US taxpayer got put on the hook for, among other things, the most recent $16 trillion Wall Street bailout.

In September 2008 on DU2 I described the situation: Know your BFEE: Phil Gramm, the Meyer Lansky of the War Party, Set-Up the Biggest Bank Heist Ever.

Those interested may also enjoy what Robert Scheer thinks about Phil Gramm.

For some reason, until the Panama Papers, this information wasn't much interest to the USA's "news media." Perhaps they don't like to disturb their owners and operators any more than they have to.

7. It's funny how you don't mention that he's fighting against the Republicans

I guess eve some of the more die-hard Sanders supporters have, subconsciously, come to terms with him not being the nominee.

8. 1. Reality. 2. His own ego 3. Hillary Clinton

 

and as another has pointed out, he has left Republicans out of his attacks, and so have his dwindling supporters.

10. He would be positively crushing her. She is only ahead because of what you note.
