Bernie sure makes it seem he thinks Hillary is as bad as Trump

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/281032-sanders-democratic-primary-not-a-monarchy

He brushed aside questions about whether he would campaign for Clinton in the fall, cutting off NBC’s Kristen Welker when she tried to ask.


This has been Bernie's way of doing things lately. He continues to rattle his sabre against Hillary, against the DNC, and threaten to sue everyone who he perceives as being against him. But when someone dares to ask him a question, he walks away like a petulant child. He can't even do the usual political spin and use it as a pivot point. He literally walks away and refuses to acknowledge the question was asked.

It should be a no-brainer for anyone running as a Democrat, or even an unaffiliated progressive, that they will campaign for Hillary in the fall. I find it extremely telling, and quite troubling, that he refuses to say anything concrete about helping her.

2. Bernie is going to be on board.

He has said all along that he would support the nominee. He has said all along that Hillary Clinton is better than anyone the Republicans have to offer.

Right now he is still focused on winning votes in the primaries. Once the primaries are over, he will do the right thing. His speech endorsing Hillary is going to be a highlight of the general election season, I think.

3. "He can't even do the usual political spin and use it as a pivot point."

That is the money quote.

That. among many other reasons, is why I support him,

4. He'll have to cut a deal to endorse her to pay off his debt

It's not what he wants to do, but he'll do it grudgingly to cover any debt he has incurred. Or he could just let the debt go and endorse Trump out of spite.

5. I've been saying this about Bernie for quite some time

 

He's angry all the time and he's got a big temper.

6. This should be in the Hillary forum

The original poster's comments are so anti-Bernie, this obviously doesn't belong in the GDP section.

7. You Brock-puppets really need someone who can do original thinking.

 

Even 8-year-olds can see through you.

8. At this point, Bernie has been reduced to a whiny old man

Hillary has already whipped him. But this guy seems to think the whole political process should change just because HE got in the race.
I used to have a lot of respect for Bernie, but it's hard to feel that for him now.
He needs to go take a seat somewhere and Shut the Hell UP!
