37. #1 - I really couldn't care less what I sound like to you. Either with us, or agin us?! Seriously?!

I couldn't care less about the Republican's tax and spend attacks. Let them. We either stand for things or we don't.

I believe in fighting for progressives values as well. The difference between you and I, it seems, is that I believe in fighting smart. Over-promising isn't smart. That being said -- I really believe that Bernie would work to improve our incarceration rate. One of many reasons I have donated $750 to his campaign. (Money that should be heading into a retirement account!!!)

Comparing Obama's broken promises to Bernie is not right.

Life isn't fair. We have to deal with the political realities on the ground right now. Obama's rhetoric vs. his achievements have given voters plenty of legitimate reason to be wary of big promises.

Bernie is not positioning himself to the left of Hillary for political gain, he is reluctantly running fro POTUS to advance the issues he has a lifetime record of working for, and he correctly assessed that if he didn't run, nobody would give voice to those issues.

Don't know that I remotely suggested otherwise.

He is not taking corporate money. He will be the same man when he assumes office.

Don't know that I remotely suggested otherwise.
