88. We've had enormous CHANGE.. Don't try to say
Mon Dec 23, 2019, 10:12 AM
Dec 2019

we haven't.

President Obama actually accomplished CHANGE.. BS just talks about it.

BS also endorse the lewd misogynist, cenk uygur, President Obama would never do anything like that.


Sanders’ abrupt reversal represented a misstep for Vermont senator and presidential candidate. The California arm of his campaign was warned about Uygur's past comments and urged the national campaign to stay out of the race, sources told POLITICO.

But Sanders endorsed Uygur regardless.
His intervention created turmoil on the ground in California’s 25th Congressional district, a seat that Democrats flipped in 2018 but is now vacant after Democrat Katie Hill resigned amid allegations of sexual impropriety.''


Similar denunciations poured forth again following Sanders’ endorsement on Thursday. Even supporters of the Vermont senator expressed dismay that the progressive standard-bearer would back a candidate, in Uygur, with a problematic history. Local activists also groused that, unlike Smith, Uygur does not live in the district.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
