Why are any of you surprised at this?

Bernie Sander was never anything other than the quintessential tax and spend Democrat. Protestations of being other wise were disingenuous at best, lies at worst.

Of course he's going to endorse Clinton, he knows which side of the bread his butter is on.

I'm sorry so many of you are disappointed, and/or angry... Nothing new under the sun, and Bernie certainly wasn't new.

I can tell you what this Bernie supporter is going to do. After the Republicans complete failure after investing everything in a Hillary investigation and still not giving it up, I've decided that not a single member of their party is worth a vote come November on a national stage. I don't know if I'll vote for Hillary or not as I don't really like her, but every vote is either going to be 3rd party or Democrat.

Exactly. Perhaps then his entire rhetoric was in the end, just all hot air. A phony.


Of course he's endorsing her. Hillary is adopting several of his proposals.

Probably a decent number will if Trumps numbers improve. That's the trap and why people have got to learn about our political system and get involved and push candidates that actually represent themselves. The lesser of two evils is no way to run America.


It's no way to run anything.

Unless of course, the Republicans nominate Ryan and Trump runs Independent as well ... which would be my ideal scenario!


I could totally see this happening.

he has to , but this really sucks. Bernie wasn't perfect, made some basic campaign mistakes, but he is the only candidate I have ever really been impressed by on things that really count, like credibility , grasp of the issues and fighting for us

I think the nation would be better with him as senate majority leader anyway, but a bernie run for the white house would have been epic

republicans in recent administrations have actually been the big spenders and big government growers. (HW Bush being the most fiscally repsonsible.) W Bush, Reagan and Ford were the big spenders

Yes, they were. Did you think I'd disagree?

Sanders was trying to portray himself as something other than what he is. That's my issue with the man.

Here we go again, Bernie said that if he would not get the nomination he would fully endorse Hillary, he said that at the start of the race against Hillary.



Someone had to stand beside her and make it appear there
was a "process" going on. Otherwise, she would be standing
there on the stage alone lying left and right to every person
in America, and to every media outlet.

Bernie was a stooge imo.

So, arguably by the same logic and far more evidence, Trump is also a "stooge" to make the Election seem legitimate?

Okay, I'll bite, how far down that rabbit-hole do we go?

he declared himself a democratic socialist that was going to pay for his programs with higher taxes on the wealthiest households and offshore corporate holdings.

read my lips, the tax and spend label is marketing, the truth is republicans spend more then democrats as you acknowledged

As soon as you have The FBI director expose any Republican with
a press conference on the myriad of lies, untruths and falsehoods as he
did with Hillary Rodham,
then we can make a comparison.


Until then, simply put Bernie was a puppet.

It strikes me that Madame Clinton's people need this story more than Senator Sanders does.

I find it impossible to imagine Sen. Sanders endorsing her unless she has promised him some extra-ordinary plum. And even so, Sen. Sanders will not wish to squander the power of his supporters.

More? Not sure I'd agree with that particular take on spending. Too much? That I'll go along with.

That, I should think--actually I do think, goes without saying. Sen. Sanders is going to want a little somethin' somethin' in exchange for his endorsement.

Most, if not all, politicians in his position would. Hell, I would...which is why I'll never run for high political office. I know, beyond any doubt what so ever, that I'm extremely corruptible...

I doubt by now that with the deflated push of Bernie's supporters:
relieved at the Hillary exoneration [cough], that the delegate count
would experience any semblance of brokerage relief. Safe at home.
PAYback?
I can only speculate that the father of the F35 would get a fat check-
book. It's the Amerikan way. comrade. And it's how we ROFL. It's
all secondary to the big putsch in the long run... and it's almost over.

Personally:
It's kind of like an intramural game of hoop, only Bernie is McCain to
the DNC. It's all good, and nobody I know who's a Democrat will swap
horses at this late date... especially to The Don. Hillary wins bigger.

Let me rephrase that. In spite of Bernie supporting Hil in the last
minute.. I also doubt seriously that the Media- cated prediction of
gobs of Bernie supporters actually turning to Trump is viable. It's against
their (and the little lady's) DNA. Win spin, and flame if you desire...
but I remember 40 years of shakeout too. And it shakes one color.
They're going to both sling mud during the day; but those old buddies
will do their best work at night. I remember that hotel tete a' te...

Apparently I'm a little tired. I read that three times and I got nothing out of it. I'll try again in the morning, or you could translate it for me?

Sorry Sea... I do get verbose when I'm tired too. There is no
need for tomorrow when tonight's too much.

Bernie's out of the running, and with Hillary 'in the clear'
it's payback time again. I suppose Bernie will get a plaque.
Whether he was a 'McCain' watering down the constituency
or not is irrelevant. The job is finished, and whoever might
have swung to Trump got turned off by the rhetoric from
the OTHER wierdo. Big block, Hil wins.

Sleep tight, fiery one..

I don't understand why people just can't seem to get it. Every four years we're asked to decide whether we want a member of the Crypts or Bloods to pillage our homes and rape our families. We saw the run-and-bail with Ron Paul. Many of us believed he was a real alternative to the SOS. But in the end he was more Republican than American. This time around many of us believed Bernie was a legitimate alternative to the SOS. But in the end it seems he's more a Democrat than an American. The arguments against voting third party are always the same: they have no chance. Look what we have in front of us: Trump and Hillary. ANY third party would be better than what's ahead for us. We need to get our collective heads out of our asses and realize that until we sideline the established parties NOTHING will ever change for the better. Both parties are bought and paid for. They have their marching orders. And if people really believe Trump will somehow go all-rogue on the GOP if elected you are sadly delusional.

So Bernie finally did it. He is now all in for the Wall Street and War candidate. I guess people can be easily bought these days. I suppose this makes Bernie part of the 1%
