THIS is the SECOND Hillary 'Flying Monkey Minion' smear attack on Bernie Sanders, I've read today.

I am not a Bernie voter...but I haven't seen him running anything close to a negative campaign...let alone "The Most Negative Primary Campaign EVER"!

If anything, Sanders has been too soft on the old witch...and in taking the high road against her, has only encouraged her to get dirtier and dirtier; that's the Clinton way...Hillary is a political predator and to her, kindness and character are always seen as weakness.

Hillary must be very very scared.



Hillary Clinton campaign strategist Joel Benenson made an eyebrow-raising claim Friday on CNN, accusing Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) of running the most negative Democratic primary campaign in history.

Sanders has aired ads attacking Wall Street and big banks without naming Clinton, who has received huge speaking fees from Goldman Sachs, but he has also made it clear he would not engage in personal mud-slinging during the campaign.

“I think he’s going negative,” Benenson said. “I think he’s probably running the most negative campaign of any Democratic presidential candidate.”

“You think so?” anchor Kate Bolduan asked.

“I think so, in a presidential primary season, yes,” Benenson said. “I think he’s been more personal in his attacks. I think he’s been increasing it on the stump recently, and I do, I can’t think of one. Even in a very hard-fought campaign in 2008, I don’t think we had the range of negativity on either side, and I was on Obama’s side then, that we’ve had now.”

Bolduan pointed out to Benenson that Sanders helped Clinton by dismissing her private email controversy during the first Democratic debate in October, famously remarking that the American people were sick of hearing about “your damn emails!” Sanders also has said, while noting Bill Clinton’s past sexual misconduct was “deplorable,” that Hillary was his true opponent and her husband’s past malfeasance wasn’t relevant to their political debate.

Sanders also said during that exchange at the NBC debate that he had “avoided” attacking Clinton, to which Clinton herself nodded and smiled.

Benenson stood firm in his claim against Sanders.

“He’s running fundamental attacks, and he’s going out on the stump every day raising issues about her personally, her character, and other Democrats as well,” he said. “Democrats, by the way, who enacted the toughest rules on Wall Street and the banking system in seven decades.”

In the last three weeks, Benenson said, Sanders himself might be “feeling the Bern” because of the increased scrutiny he’s gotten as he’s caught up with Clinton in the Iowa polls.

“It seems once you’re not with him, you become a focal point of his attacks, and I do think it’s been extremely negative,” Benenson said. “I think it’s unfortunate.”

Clinton’s campaign was tied to spreading the false rumor that then-Sen. Barack Obama was a Muslim when the two were battling for the 2008 Democratic nomination. When pressed on the subject at the time, Clinton remarked “as far as I know” there was no basis to the Muslim rumors about Obama.

So Hillary loved it when Bernie was playing submissive, but now Bernie wants to play the Dom she is getting upset?

Best Presidential election of my life! So many people are being exposed for who they are, yet so many people begging for change are begging for the same overlords!

Bernie has not released any negative ads. He does not speak negatively. He does however, point out that she's connected to wealth and power and lobby money (which is a fact). And he refutes her misrepresentations of him, like defending himself when she accuses him of wanting to "tear up Obamacare."

Bernie hasn't gone negative at all. He has kept strictly to the issues. If Hillary thinks Bernie is being negative she's more out of touch than Trump who is so scared of Megyn Kelly he won't even let her question him. Oddly enough, by remaining on the issues he has made Hillary spiral into insanity and it really illustrates the contrast in the two.

Yeah, yeah, yeah and CNN shouldn't have treated her soooo badly during the town hall either.

How dare they let that young whipper snapper ask her about the fact that many people view her as untrustworthy.

Not to worry, that's just Hillary playing the victim card, it's her specialty.

Playing the poor powerless victim is what she and Bill do best. Hell, they've been doing it for 30+ years.

He better watch himself otherwise he could find he is suicided via gunshot wound to the back of the head whilst driving - the establishment does not like a departure from controlled opposition.

It's a vast left wing conspiracy.

Grrr I can't use the words that I really need to.

On the other hand this is what started her downfall in 2008. So keep at it!

She's right, though. Bernie's running the most negative Democratic Primary campaign ever against Wall St. The other Democrats usually try to sidestep economic nuances. But Bernie's refusing their money, promising to break up the major banks, and pointing out how much money she's received from them. That's practically blasphemy if you're a Wall Street investor, crony, puppet, or ally.

If he wanted to, he could attack her personally on a lot worse things. But attacking her ties to Wall Street is apparently going too far.

Wait, so pointing out the obvious and the truth about Hillary is "negative"?

Yeah, okay. *yawn*. I'm going back to sleep now.

Bernie should get on stage and talk about how he could murder an innocent man in the streets, or mock disabled reporters physical disabilities, like another candidate has done.

After all, negativity and being an asshole is just fighting against the personal computer epidemic, yes? (I'm aware it's political stupidness, not personal computer)


Maybe Hilary and her supporters, and Wall St. should designate a "safe zone," where there's no negativity allowed!

First time I ever gave you a star, IAMTAT.

It's incredible, the hypocrisy here. This is literally a negative smear campaign directed against someone with little to no negative smear in his campaign, about him having a negative smear campaign.

First time I gave one to you, as well.
I call them as I see them. Bernie has been playing fair with Hillary...and she is a viper.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."- Joseph Goebbels quote


Hillary's using propaganda techniques, right out of the Adolph Hitler playbook!

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story, lest Ms. Clinton be elected.
