Response to DemocratSinceBirth (Reply #72)

74. LOL! I just don't see a quote

and I know how the media tends to say things that maybe weren't said--so I'll just remain skeptical of that.

Perhaps Bernie has said it. If he did say it, that is big news. I wonder why the journalist didn't use a specific quote, if that is indeed what Sanders said. Perhaps that's because Sanders didn't say it.

Yesterday, people were asserting that Bernie was "tamping down" expectations because he said that it was "mythology" that he must win Iowa to win the nomination. I went through and looked at the articles and he was not tamping down anything.

He was simply answering a question. Would be similar to a reporter asking, "Do you have to win in Nevada to get the nomination" and Sanders replying, "No, we're in for the long haul" --only to have someone scream, "He's tamping down expectations in Nevada!!"

It's ridiculous.

I'm a bit skeptical when I don't see the direct quote. Even when there is a direct quote, it's often misconstrued. We're into silly season.
