Where Conservatives Have A Voice!
Coming from way behind, Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was clearly ripped off by Hillary Clinton’s corrupt political machine. Would he have been Democratic candidate if Hillary had played by the rules? Nobody knows for sure, but it would have been a lot closer, and many are convinced that he would have indeed prevailed.
Now, Bernie is finally speaking out about his own party after what was surely a deviating loss, especially when he knew what was going on behind the scene.
A year after the Democrats lost control of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Barack Obama’s legacy is being chipped away, day after day. And it’s not just his legacy, it’s also the legacy that Democrats tried to build during their opposition to the Bush administration.
According to eheadlines:
It’s almost like the last 15 years or so have been a failure for the Democrats. But don’t take my word for it — take Bernie Sanders’. At an event Wednesday, the socialist independent senator and rumpled Clarence Darrow impersonator from Vermont told an audience that “the last 15 years or so has been a failure” for the Democrats.
The remarks came during an appearance in Jackson, Mississippi at a “forum for economic justice” honoring the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s death, during which The New York Times speculated he was trying to court black voters.
“The business model for the Democratic Party for the last 15 years or so has been a failure,” Sanders told the crowd during a question-and-answer session.
“Now what happened, people sometimes don’t see that because of the charismatic individual named Barack Obama who won the presidency in 2008 and 2012.
“He was obviously an extraordinary candidate, brilliant man, but behind that reality over the last ten years Democrats have lost about 1,000 seats in state legislatures all across this country. And you’ve got significant numbers of states like Mississippi where the government, the legislature, the senators, are all Republicans.”
The rest of Sanders’ answer, fortunately for conservatives, proved that Sanders still doesn’t get why the last 15 years have been a failure for the Dems.
“Now how does this happen at a time when the Republican agenda is the agenda of the billionaire class and is at war with working people?” Sanders told the audience.
“How does it happen that a party that wants to give tax breaks to billionaires and throw millions of people off their health insurance actually win elections?”
