WATCH: Bernie Sanders says he’s very proud of shifting Democrats to the radical left!

Bernie Sanders has now entered the fray of 2020 Democratic candidates vying for the presidency.

When asked by host John Dickerson on CBS This Morning what his distinguishing characteristic would be, Sanders said it would be the fact that he’s shifted the party to the radical left:



Bernie suggests that three years ago the ideas he talked about when campaigning against Hillary, ideas like ‘Medicare for All’, raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour and making colleges tuition free, were said by people in his party to be too radical.

But three years later he says these ideas are now mainstream in his party, and he’s very proud to have shifted the party to the radical socialist left.

The next thing you know Bernie’s gonna make bread lines cool! Listen to how he spun the idea of ‘bread lines’ in his youth!

LOL! Bread lines are cool because at least the rich are feeding the poor! How generous of them!

The 2020 Democratic primary is gonna be lit!

This crazy old coot has contributed nothing to society his whole life. Until he gained public office he was almost a pauper. Now he has an audience for his crazy agenda. Keep it coming . . .nutbag.

One good thing for trump supporters, according to trump he and Bernie are similar on trade. So if Bernie wins the trade policy will be the same.

This man should be arrested and charged as a subversive. By his on words he is a communist who stands and fights against the founding documents of America, so he is in noway eligible to run for the presidency of the United States Of America.
Freedom of speech in politics does not mean because of politics one has the freedom of subversion of the Untied States of America.

D Party POTUS Debates start in 7 months …
.
Start identifying and getting active in ways to force ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, NPR, & PBS to allow a real Conservative to be a Debate Moderator for each one …
.. and watch these idiots destroy themselves.

I recommend Mark Levin.

Yea, things were different when the doctors and orderlies were running things. But now that’s changed! Now the inmates are running the asylum, and I’m glad to be the inmate that led them there. Now get me out of this straightjacket, I have to go have a conversation with my 6′ invisible rabbit friend.

Why is it the democrats think everyone on the right is a radical and we should all be afraid of the radicals but when it’s radical left that’s all cool? It’s called radical for a reason and I’m not talking ’bout cool 80’s freestyle bike tricks.

And the left needs to shut up about how we push old white people as candidates. Have they seen their last presidential election candidates? How many knew Lincoln personally? And they carry over to next election.

Hate to tell dingbat Bernie (and his minion Ocasio-Cortez) that in order to do what he envisions we’d literally have to enslave (forced labor) a huge segment of the population in order to serve those who won’t work. Eventually even the slaves/serfs won’t want to work so there will be nothing for anyone. Bernie’s “ideal” is a slow train to oblivion.

The only reason he got any traction last time is because he was the alternative to Hillary in the primaries. This time around there are going to be younger, more diverse versions of Bernie and what he represents that run. I don’t give him much of a chance.

Uncle Bernie, in the end, will run as a third party candidate. The Dem party will never nominate him.

Sanders raised over $1 Million from all states in small donations within 2 hours.
He will have the money to last until the end of the primary. Lot’s of fun ahead.

This leech has been attached to the government’s backside for years! Of course, he believes government has the answers to every problem. Look how it has benefited him!

Meanwhile, children and their children will be stuck footing the bill for his chicken-in-every-pot Bernie Sanders (nice how his initials are the same as … well, you know)!

Trump really got under crazy Bernie’s skin when he said a the SOTU speech that America would never become a socialist nation. The camera panned to Bernie and he was on a slow boil. Sorry Bernie, you and Donkey Chompers are going to have to step up your game, Spartacus and Hairyass are promising more free $hi][.

Apart from him being 79 before the election even takes place, all we have to do is just point at him and say, “Trump does have issues, but holy crap have you heard this guy?”

I don’t see how he thinks anyone would vote for him after being railroaded by Hillary and the DNC and selling out after the convention.

It’s playing with fire but I’m happy he’s running.
They will screw him again and his voters will hate the establishment D’s.
And Trump can proceed showcasing the “Socialism vs. Capitalism” and “Freedom vs. Oppression”.

Runner-ups win the next primary when they have strong establishment support and have weak opposition the next go around (Hillary 2016, Romney 2012, McCain 2008). They do poorly if they were only runner-up bc they became the defacto opposition to the frontrunner and there is strong competition the next primary (Edwards 2008, Huckabee/Santorum 2016).
Bernie seems to belong in the latter group

Only a Communist would try to make bread lines sound reasonable. Anyone who lived through the Great Depression would not agree but alas most from that generation are gone and unable to speak up.
