    We often tell ourselves the simple narrative when reality is more complex.

    That said, I think it's wise for Bernie to have as limited a plan as possible. The fuzzier the math the better. Nuanced...
  2. I'm good for striving to be better than Europe,...

    I'm good for striving to be better than Europe, but what you say is cracks forming I think is an understatement. And those fissures are at a tiny fraction of our racial and cultural diversity. I'm...

    It says right in his plan that it's far more comprehensive than that. What you're saying is far more reasonable, but it isn't Sanders' plan.

    He has nothing in his plan to regulate costs or...
  4. These plans fall short, however. Just a quick...

    These plans fall short, however. Just a quick breakdown:

    Free college: initial costs are 1.6 trillion, it will take the better part of 10 years to pay for that. (Not to mention nothing in his...

    Canada, like all of Europe, gets romanticized by the left. But truthfully, every nation has a ton of shitty stuff behind the curtain. And that's even with it being mostly a bunch of lily white...

    Yup, I expect tomorrow to be akin to 4-5 Warrens leveling their best shots at Bernie's Bloomberg. He's going to get the ire of that entire field on stage and they will look to puncture every...

    Ha! It's not a bad strategy, if he survives and we can call it anything better than a "bloodbath" or a "bludgeoning" it's a win for him.
  8. Tomorrow night will be one of the first real...

    Tomorrow night will be one of the first real tests for Bernie. All the eyes are on him. All the daggers pointed at him. A debate hosted by BET and before the first state with a large black voting...

    This post is...bizarre. I've never expressed any interest in Buttigieg. Also, I'm pretty sure I've said twice today that people vote on emotions far more than policy. So two thirds of this is way...
  10. I hear that argument. I get why people feel that...

    I hear that argument. I get why people feel that way emotionally, but Warren is a practical person. It's partly why she has done things for Americans in Congress that Bernie didn't in a fraction of...
  11. I don't think her plan is ludicrous at all. In...

    I don't think her plan is ludicrous at all. In fact, if M4A happens, I suspect it happens much like she laid out.
  12. I haven't found too many Bernie supporters eager...

    I haven't found too many Bernie supporters eager to discuss policy. Bernie himself only talks about it in broadstrokes...so I call BS on that.

    Warren didn't compromise, she was just a realist. ...
  13. Well, I don't agree with this. I think Bernie...

    Well, I don't agree with this. I think Bernie has a sizable segment of his support that is a cult of personality. I don't believe that many of them would just line up behind someone else...
  14. I agree with the part I didn't quote, we're going...

    I agree with the part I didn't quote, we're going to have to wait and see how things play out.

    To this point: I don't think it's just the Democrats. People vote on emotion and right now Bernie is...
  15. I don't think we know which one is "more" and we...

    I don't think we know which one is "more" and we probably won't until we have the final race starting. I know you cite more Hillary voters are willing to switch than Bernie and that statistic has...
  16. The point you bring up is a legitimate concern...

    The point you bring up is a legitimate concern going forward. A Bernie nomination over, say, Biden WILL cause a portion of the electorate to push to not vote or vote Trump. The key for Sanders is...
  17. Decisive win for Bernie tonight. There really...

    Decisive win for Bernie tonight. There really isn't any downside to it for him. Buttigieg is going to finish third, Warren's debate performance didn't save her, and Klobuchar is a complete...

    Not formalized, but they had been direct that there would be punishments.

    Their biggest mistake was giving the players immunity. Now, rather than the player's union looking like the bad guys, the...

    First, let's be clear: the superdelegate whining was happening last time from Bernie supporters while they trailed Hillary by nearly 4 million popular votes. Pounding on about how important it is to...

    You should read more closely. I agree that is an unfair expectation.

    Your superdelegate stuff, however, is straight up embarrassing. You should have no pride but disgust with that take. Follow...

    Yeah, if your counter to the Russia problem is to cry about super-delegates....chalk that up as one of the dumbest, most repulsive things you can say. Among the many things I hate about Trump,...

    Sometimes I wonder if you are literally using the Office Space "Jump to Conclusions" game.

    To his credit, Bernie addressed it directly and unequivocally. Now we wait to see if any of his supporters want to step into the potential "stupid" that abounds with this.

    And I quoted your equivocation and reminded you of the definition. Maybe you didnt intend it, but you did it. To say nothing of the whataboutism.
  25. By equivocating you made it unclear.
