Bernie Sanders is starting to get the everybody hates Ted Cruz treatment.
The ongoing battle between Sanders and the Democratic National Committee has revealed not only the extent of Sanderss contempt for Democratic officials, but that the feeling is mutual. His refusal to take a harder line against supporters who have issued violent, sexist threats against Nevada Democratic Chair Roberta Lange, along with his suggestion that they were justified in their anger, has brought condemnation from prominent Democrats and emboldened them to make harsher criticisms of Sanders and his brand of populist, anti-establishment politics. Barney Frank has gone so far as to suggest that this is why Sanders is something of an isolated figure in the party, a la Cruz....

I don’t think that’s true though.
He’s actually decently likable as a person.
And at least he’s honest.
Heck, I like the guy WAY BETTER than that screeching dingbat harpy, Clinton.
Sander’s accent makes me laugh from time to time, Clinton makes me want to put a blowtorch in my ears.
Frankly, I don’t think anyone likes Hillary.
Other than Spaghetti Head Shultz that is.
Philly gonna be most entertaining.
One can fantasize...
If Bernie wants to be like Ted Cruz he needs to start with the bible thumping—or at least pound the podium with Mao’s little red book.
If Bernie is equated to Cruz, Bernie needs to bring up venereal diseases of both Bill and Hillary, and their sexual peccadilloes. I’m sure Bill “felt the burn” more than once.
Unfortunately, the Republican convection comes first. The injured Bolshevik/anarchists will have to sit out for the ‘Rats.
Actually, Cruz got along with Republican ‘officials’ racking up numerous delegates no matter how shadily done. It was actually Trump who was despised (and may still be) by officials as can be seen by the 3rd Party stuff being pumped out by Mitt & Bill Kristol.
I got the idea from watching MSNBC in a waiting room this morning that they favor Bernie over Hillary. And really, who wouldn’t?
I used to believe this was a Judeo-Christian based website. Boy, has this election cycle disabused me of that notion.
msnbc is full on Bern. Cnn is full on killary.
So the “two minutes hate” of Ted Cruz is ongoing? But you still want his folks to vote for Don Trump?
The establishment Democrats are coming to hate him...just like the GOPe came to hate Trump.
How dare he come in here and upend Hillary’s supposed 2nd coronation?
Look, he is a uber-socialist and openly so. He would be just as bad as Hillary. but at least he is honest about who he is and he does have some fire in the belly.
They hate him for hanging on...but he knows full well what hangs over Hillary in the FBI investigation and he is going to hold on until the Democrats go all the way through with cornating her because is the FBI recommends for indictment, he knows he may get the majority or all of the super delgates and pull the thing out.
GO for it Bernie...burn Hillary down. You for your reasons...and we applaud it for our own.
it is clear that Hillary is a very weak candidate...and I am hoping for a Trump landslide in November that slaps both the GOPe and the Democratic establishment as well as the MSM, real hard about the face...four or five times such that they go away figuratively bloody about the lips and nose wondering what just happened.
Ah, I see. I haven’t had to watch CNN lately.
The only other option is a vote for Hitlery. You pushing for her these days?
Ted Cruz couldn’t put up a rally like Bernie and Trump do. Ted also didn’t win primary after primary after primary against Trump.
Bad news on Hot Air today. Joe DiGenova says the fix is in and Justice Dept. won’t indict.
It was fun last night. Hardly much about Trump or those evil republicans.
Cruz was the establishment’s choice by the time Wisconsin came around. Voters in New York and the North East and finally Indiana put Cruz’s campaign to rest. Sanders like Trump does better where the people get to vote in a primary, especially an open primary. Clinton does best where party insiders are able to manipulate the results which is where Cruz had success. There is not really much of a parallel between Cruz and Sanders.
