Bernie Sanders is said to be crabby and humorless.

"If that were true, itís hard to understand why in 1993 he introduced legislation to make the compensation rates for Congress equal to that of their Mexican counterparts if Congress passed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which would force American workers to compete with Mexican workers for jobs and pay."

This brief blog features an equally concise video... of the one 2016 candidate who has consistently fought for "everyday" Americans, for decades.

3. So Is That The New Bernie Attack Of The Week? - Crabby & Humorless?....

Come on people - that is absurd. They are getting ridiculous with these stupid attacks. They can't attack him on substance because he is truthful and a straight shooter. He doesn't play to focus groups and change positions. So they are coming up with more and more silly reasons to attack this man.

6. Well, "optics" didn't work, so I guess they're regrouping

I just hope he doesn't "scream," ride in a tank, go windsurfing, or release Willie Horton!

Let's be candid: Bernie lacks Hillary Clinton's natural warmth and ease with people.

8. Bernie has the patience of a saint & compassion, but is also strong & no fool.

On 'Brunch with Bernie' is where you can get to know him from responses to callers all over the US. He's been doing this 'town hall' radio program with Thom H. for 10 years. Bernie has integrity, a great sense of humor, is a highly intelligent, skilled person, and a fox when necessary. He's five steps ahead and very quick. Believe it.

17. The 'Brunch with Bernie' 1-hour segment is on Thom's weekday radio/tv program,

on FRIDAYS usually around the 1st hour, 12-1 PM ET, give or take a few mins. Occasionally Bernie has to switch days or misses a week b/c of his schedule, but not often.

The Thom Hartmann program is M-F, 12-3 PM ET, on some radio and cable stations or *LIVE online at freespeech.org. The program is also broadcast on The FSTV Channel carried on Dish and Direct TV, the way we usually watch it.

Btw, some segments are posted here in the BSG, on YouTube maybe and on the freespeech.org and thomhartmann.com websites; good idea to watch a show or two to get the idea and flow.

Tell your folks to have *one topic or question, which the call screener will ask for; be succinct and prepared to wait on hold, as they have listeners/viewers from all over the US and world coming in, on 8 phone lines! Try to call the phone number on the screen at 12:00 when the program starts and the phone lines open. They really do try to accommodate as many people as possible. Good luck.

18. Meaning Bernie is highly intelligent, skilled and fast, able to use these abilities

in various situations and favorably. Not meant to imply sly, cunning, underhanded or devious. Bernie is far from a grouchy or feeble old man as many would have it. I would also add patient, compassionate, perceptive, appreciative of humor and anything but a fool to his list of many positive qualities. ETA: 'a fox when necessary' - 'fox' WITH a qualifier, as I originally wrote.
