Jeff Weaver- worst surrogate ever

How the hell did Bernie decide to put this guy out front. He is homely and has a constant scowl on his face. First rule of getting people on your side is appearance and the second is demeanor. Talk about bad judgement.

things through -- what people look like, whether you like the way they look, synonyms for "homely", ....

While the Hillary campaign is obsessed with our skin color and our genitals, I don't care so much what people look like. We should organize around policy goals.

looks and demeanor do matter and every study shows that too be true. Good looking people are considered smarter in every study(perception).
Why do you think people in Hollywood are beautiful. Do you think it is an accident? It is an unfortunate fact of life and when you want to get people on your side you have to consider how people are going to be perceived.

Secondly, his demeanor. This guy is bad.

a whole bunch of morons think Trump is great by his impression. perception in America is in every day life. Why do you think African Americans get passed by by cabs and why they hardly ever get an interview because of their name. Or people laugh because Trump makes fun of Rosie O'donnell or fat people are made fun of and looked down upon as lazy.

Every study says that good looking people are perceived as being smarter. Good looking kids get treated better in school. Do I agree with it? absolutely not but I know that in this society it matters.

i said he was ineffective as a spokesman. This is a game of perception. In the U.S. it always has been. Was barack more pleasant than John Mccain. of course he was.

It is smart to always put your best foot forward and to give the best impression up front. Usually people buy from whom they like.That is the perception game. Why not have Weaver in the background and get someone else upfront.

Is that such a difficult concept?

23. So i am in sales and i have a cold calling business

 

I meet with some of the most powerful attorneys and CIO's in the U.S. I have met with the attorney who did the Chevron- Ecuador matter. I was only the second meeting with a vendor he ever took. How is that for a cold call? Cold calling is an art.

When I go into a law firm I am dressed to the hilt. perfect suit starched shirt conservative tie and shined shoes. My hair is coifed and I pay $55 for a haircut. I have a full head of hair at 64 and some of is still black. I'm about 10 pounds more than my college weight. Impressions are so important in sales and looks are also important.

Pleasant demeanor,good conversation with good question asking is the key to getting people on your side.

Great litigators and sales people have a lot in common. Litigators sell their services and then in trial they are trying to sway people to their side. Most of them have electric personalities and are quite funny.

Nothing is left to chance. I always find a common point of interest with the pople I meet.

I managed a budget of $10M a year. I got cold calls all the time from "sales slime" (that's what we purchasers called people who called on us ). I usually took someone who dressed to impress as someone with not much to sell other than their looks (that was for both men and women sales types). Impress me with your product or service, not your appearance.

34. Of course you did

 

but cold calling is an art and you won't believe how many times I have gotten over the years i have been told i had 20 cold call sand you are the only one I am talking to.

Funny thing is i noticed when cold calling and meeting IT people I found that they were super impressed with themselves and they always thought they were smarter that everyone.

I also found that they were the biggest suckers for marketing around because of their egos. I sold enterprise software and some of my deals were Siemens, Kemet electronics(Union Carbide) and others.

The reason why you dress for law firms is that law firms still wear suits and they are peacocks themselves.

Most It people think they are soo smart LOL. I could have easily been an engineer as my two brothers ate engineers and neither are any better than me in math. I took 5 years of math in high school as was going to be a math major in college.

The attorneys I deal with are all Ivy's(Yale Harvard, Princeton) or Duke etc. 'll bet a million dollars they are smarter than you. One of the people I am working on right now was Obama's debate coach and most of them don't call sales people slime.

29. I am not quite certain how to address someone as special as you

obviously are! But i will make a feeble attempt.

7wo7rees and I (his SO for 18 years), have been in sales for a combined 50 years. Much of what you say is true but you come across as an arrogant POS. Not attacking you personally but .......

So basically what you are saying is to hell with substance.
Weaver has been with Bernie for years. That should count for more than what you perceive to be good marketing

When it comes to this country being the best it "could" be, we don't want to be marketed to. Work with that if you can, dear Mr. Super Sales Guy. I bet Trump has a place for you on his team!

it has to do with perception. I don't understand what is wrong with taking advantage of every thing god gave you. Weaver has to try to get people on his side. He needs to convince people to go with him.

It would have been the smart move to get someone who would make people want to listen to him. watch him he is pathetic. He is hostile and condescending.

The major goal is too win people. The simple question is to you think he does when he is the spokesman for Bernie?

The stupid movie "idiocracy", SouthPark, everything George Carlin or Bill Hicks ever had to say.
You are laying claim to all!

Perception, looks, I am in my beautiful suit, starched crisp shirt, perfectly "coiffed hair" ($55 I might add).
You are a special representation of what is so terribly wrong. I apologize first and hope you are not offended.

I think I remember hearing this at some point in my lifetime. I'm pretty sure it was done by bullies in middle school who used to make fun of the handicapped kids. In fact, it was!

63. physical appearance has always been important in America

 

the idea is to win people over. That is the end game. Do you think his appearance on talk shows benefits Bernie? what is the end game?

The end game is to win. Ask yourself honestly does Weaver benefit Bernie on any show?

I say he doesn't. same with Nina . She drones on and on and on. It just becomes ineffective.

The bottom line Are you being effective?

Is Cornel West effective? I say no. His method of communicating is terrible and the African American community can't stand him.

So let's take a look at the last 6 weeks. Do you think Bernie's surrogates have been effective? Tad Devine has been the most effective. His is fine pleasant states his point and moves on. He is a pro.

Nina Turner shakes her head no when someone disagrees with her and drones on and on and on. Is that effective?

Jeff Weaver is down right obnoxious.

We don't even see Cornel anymore as they figured out he was poison.

don't take things personally just evaluate their effectiveness as speakers for Bernie.

80. So you condone Trumps remarks then when he talks of Hillary's appearance and other women?

 

That's pretty rich and rather shallow.

Fascinating really, that you would consider an attack on someone's physical characteristics as being legit.

Par for the course though. It is after all what I've come to expect from Hillary supporters.

When you can defend your candidate and things like FBI investigations, attack the looks of her opponents.

Yup yup. 'Murica!

65. I work with two sales guys

 

both could be in Hollywood. They are taht good looking and both are effective. Good communicators. One is relentless and something I admire and something we have in common. He just walked away from a 400k year to take a better gig.

In our biz base salaries are well over 6 figures.

79. So let me tell you a quick story on one of them

 

One of them walked into our sales kickoff and my good friend from Chicago turned to me and said "If I looked like him sales would be easier". We just deal with it in sales. The good thing about this guy who is good looking is his knowledge is great and he is quite charismatic. We just closed the first deal at a major firm I have been after for 5 years. This could lead to millions of dollars in sales.

61. Jeff Weaver is making a lot of money.

So Sanders must think he is worth something to be putting him into the 1% for his work.

His campaign was never about optics.

Buh Bye!

legance?

REASON FOR ALERT

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

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Ageist, sexist, you name it. A horrible post that is beneath DU

JURY RESULTS

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri May 20, 2016, 02:57 PM, and the Jury voted 4-3 to HIDE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: I'me not a fan of Clinton's and find this inappropriate. Hide it.
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Disgusting. Not sure what this poster is even doing at DU.
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Suggesting Hillary is not elegant, as she has been touted to be, is neither sexist or ageist. Elegance is not about sex or age. A young man can lack elegance. However, alerter, if YOU find every pic of a 67 year old woman that has not been airbrushed and photoshopped to make her look 37 sexist and ageist, you might examine your own biases.
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Eff this crap. I'm sick of it.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Close, but does not cross the line.
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

82. Don't complain...it's part of the global reason for the Sanders loss.

 

Remember, he has actually already lost. Any reasonable candidate would have dropped weeks ago. Now it is just a show for some reason we have yet to clearly understand.
