There’s one Dem senator who is definitely not backing Bernie and declined to commit to supporting Bernie over Trump. No surprise that he is the one from WV

The last time Bernie Sanders ran for president, he was treated like a pariah within the Senate Democratic Caucus: His colleagues thought his campaign was a liberal fantasy that served only to damage Hillary Clinton.

This time, though, the Vermont independent is getting a warmer reception from the senators who comprise much of the Democratic establishment he’s railed against.

Senate Democrats say they’re increasingly open to getting behind Sanders if he appears the strongest candidate a year from now. And there’s no whiff of an effort to try and deny him the nomination, according to interviews with more than 20 Democratic senators.

It’s not that the Democratic Caucus is rallying behind him; most of them would prefer a more mainstream nominee, even if they’re unwilling to say it at this point. But they’re giving Sanders props for what he’s accomplished, and say if he’s able to win the nomination, more power to him.

Translation: They may not stone him this time, but they will pile up rocks just in case.

Manchin might as well change parties. T and R, LD!! Bernie has found the elixir of youth. Kudos to him from a disabled wrinkle.

Thanks, birdies!

Indeed, none of the people questioning the original claim about the burning trucks, or citing this evidence to argue that the U.S. Government and its Venezuelan ally Guaidó were lying, ever made it onto national television to present their dissent. They weren’t allowed on. To the extent they were acknowledged at all, it was to defame them as Maduro apologists – for telling the truth – just as those who tried to combat the propaganda of 2002 and 2003 were smeared as being pro-Saddam. Only Rubio, Bolton, Pompeo, and various other U.S. officials were permitted to spread their lies without any challenge.

Glad the NYT ran the exposé, though.

The sad fact about this whole deal is neither Maduro nor Guaido are big prizes. They’re both RW dictators. One was elected and the other wasn’t. That’s it.

Maduro is more of a LW dictator, imo. lol

Bernie now. 😊

polarbear4

Bernie is strong today. Can’t do multiple windows on my phone so will just check in now and then.

Benny

I listened to it over my smartphone while grocery shopping today. Probably the sole person in my town multitasking in that regard! 🙂

polarbear4

The answer, “[Frack] you!” to Bernie’s question “ what are we going to say to….” might become a regular feature if Bernie keeps framing questions this way. lol.

I RL the way Bernie is modulating his voice more.

People had to drive through this to get to the rally today.

Benny

That explains why Bernie was surprised and pleased about the turnout.

What a surprise! A somewhat positive article about Bernie in Politico.

Well it was not taking as many shots at him. Guess the Hillary whisperers were busy doing something else.

polarbear4

Agree. I wouldn’t bet on there not being dirty tricks and even machine fixing in the primary and the general.
