I’m not so sure Bernie Sanders decision to run as a candidate in the Democratic Party is that benign. In 1988 he ran for congress as a splinter against a very strong Democrat and a weak Republican. The Republican won, of course. 2 years later, the prior strong Democratic Party candidate had moved on and chose not to run again. Bernie then was able to run against the weak Republican with the help of the NRA and he won.
*
There are pictures of him cheering, during a rally when someone was wondering if he’d be able to take enough votes away from the (supposed) fellow Democratic candidate to get the Republican elected – As he writes in his autobiography, Outsider in the House: “I began the race as a “spoiler.” (Oh how I love that word, with its implications of the sacrosanct nature of the two-party system.) Would I take away enough votes from the Democrat to elect the Republican? But a funny thing happened on the way to Election Day. I wasn’t the spoiler, after all. The Democrat was.”
*
The important sentence in that quote is “Would I take away enough votes from the Democrat to elect the Republican?” (his own words from his autobiography). Jeff Weaver Bernie Sanders current campaign manager here in 2016 slipped up when he said “Democrats won’t win”.
*
The backstory to 1988 is that VT has only ONE house seat and does not tend to vote out incumbents. If the strong Democrat had won, Bernie would not have been able to unseat him 2 years later, the way he could the weak Republican and would probably still be Mayor of Burlington.
*
Is he doing this again in 2016? After his statement today about justice Antonin Scalia who has not been a friend of the Democratic Party membership and who had just recently made the news when he made some very racist remarks as a judge. According to Bernie Sanders he was a brilliant member of the Supreme Court.
*
Is he trying to get a Republican in the white house as the spoiler once again? Is he trying to destroy the two party system he despises so much or at least the Democratic Party half? Again why are we letting the independent run in our Party? No Democratic Party member should be supporting him!
*
We have the most awesome candidate in Hillary Clinton, with the best credentials, following a historic successful President. 8 more progressive years on top of 8 years of record progress is what we should be united about! Democratic Party Unity behind the only Democratic Party member candidate. Hillary Clinton

Since 2009 I am a Clinton

Hillary Clinton for President 2016

11 Mar

Here is the deciding factor for me. I have watched Bill Clinton and President Obama and even Hillary Clinton over the years as they have developed and used a style or ability, whatever you want to call it, that has let them beat the Republicans, always leaving them guessing, dazed and confused.

They know how to go for the nut and leave the icing for when the time is right but that nut always makes it a countable step forward that can be built on. They know when to use executive orders where it is the most effective. They know how to bring public consensus along with them. It does not matter what type of Republican is in office they win against them.

That is why the smear money and political capital is still being spent by Republicans on trying to take down an old past President, A lame duck President and another one of those Presidents. They fear Clinton/Obama politics. They lose to Clinton/Obama politics.

President Obama was Bernie Sanders upon arrival in office (remember the campaign of hope and change) however President Obama is very smart though and young enough that he quickly saw the reality of choice of either governing successfully or governing unsuccessfully so not even a year into office he went straight to Bill Clinton and Clinton Democrat politics and has won ever since. President Obama will go down in history as one of the best.

He took the Clinton Democrat brand and has made it his own by adding his own skillful style and ability to it, making it even more effective forever more and now Hillary will have that huge benefit of getting to use the Clinton/Obama Democratic politics brand, to frankly put it, to whoop Republican butt with.

This why I’m with her! Hillary Clinton! We must not see this opportunity of 8 successful years on top of 8 more successful years of winning Democratic leadership thrown away on just a bunch of wooing words of non-reality.
