But if your going to come out swinging as the different politician your record to date better match the rhetoric or you will get called out. Sanders won't get a pass in this as no politician ever does.


Or you guys could just read the actual article next time and see for yourselves that he is the different politician. It's pretty easy to know the truth if you just look for it.


Or you could post my entire reply with a simple realistic explanation included for those making the comparison instead of cherry picking my reply so you could play the defend Bernie role.

Really? What wars have the Dems saved us from? Hypocritical? Guffaw....



Guffaw? Gee gramps, does that mean laugh? giggle?

Did I say that Democrats had kept us out of wars? Nope.

Maybe focus on facts rather than voices in your head?

He opposed the bailout and the patriot act. Also, this:

Publicity stunt aimed at the masses? Possibly but I doubt that's his motive since he's always been about the little guy and not lining the pockets of the wealthy. You know who likes to do publicity stunts? All politicians, it's campaign season...

So who you rooting for? I wanna say you're a Rand Paul man since you loved his father so much.

Why do I have to quote you're entire post??? I showed in my post before yours how you're comparison is wrong already. Fully quoting your post won't make what you said any less wrong.

As usual, an articulate, well thought out rebuttal...GUFFAW.

Did he or did he not have the same vote as Clinton did 93% of the time irregardless of it being a big or little issue? That is the op contention here. If it is, then simple explanation. If the percentage is wrong irregardless of issues than say it.

The implication was that Hillary and Sanders are the same policy wise because of the alleged 93% voting being the same. However, the very same article being quoted is pointing out how apparently that last 7% that they voted different is of major importance including voting for a failed war, bank bailouts, etc.

When you look at how each of them actually voted it's clear when it comes to important issues that Hillary and Bernie are NOT the same at all.

One question yes or no answer. Did the article find that they voted 93% the same way? Yes or no?

Is the implication that the 3% difference is a bad thing? It is that difference that is pushing democrats toward Bernie.

Yah, for the 2 years they were in the Senate together, so what??? That's 2 years out of how many???

Then they go on to detail how they voted opposite each other on Foreign Policy, Immigration, Finance, Energy, Homeland Security and others.

So clearly painting them as being the same is incorrect.

So again, what's your point???

You know those with their confirmation bias aren't going to accept this.

Maybe I would vote 93% of the votes Hitler would of voted but that doesn't mean I'm the same than Hitler.

I don't see the point other than useless bashing.

Bernie is a career politician and is using the same hope and change BS that got his buddy Obama elected. He doesn't even try to hide his Socialist agenda. Sadly people are allowing themselves to be fooled again just like they were with Obama.

The first rule of politics is to never trust a politician. Some of us here see through his carp and some are still being fooled. Hopefully enough people are enlightened and see Bernie for the shyster he really is.

Now that is some comedy there. Correlation can be an excellent predictor of future failure. Especially in politics.

You're a great example.

Please stop scrolling the screen trying to badger me. I don't care what you think of me, and I'm betting no one else does.

Drop it in an IM if you must. Spare ATS.

What's a real world example of your claim? i.e. who did you have in mind?

General statements are great, but, uninformative.

And who are you supporting this time (2016)?

Who stands out from the crowd, in your mind?

Just once I'd love to see you back up any of the BS you say around here. I've even asked repeatedly for you to present something, anything that would substantiate you're claims and yet I never get a reply.

Why do you think that is??
