Precedent Trump

Recommended Posts

You've got be 35 to run - I think she's out for the next two or three at last. 

 

As I suggested the DNC is pivoting towards Bloomberg to stop Sanders.

Apparently his relationship with Johnson has soured rapidly. Reports of him slamming the phone down on us over Huawei, along with our concerns over Iran (did we say anything remotely interesting about Iran??).

 

Doesn't bode to well for the amazing trade deal.

On a separate point, everyone's favourite moderate Michael Bloomberg has equated the payment of a $10/hr minimum wage, applicable only in NYC, and only to companies who receive certain levels of government support - with communism.

 

God help America, seriously. Some of these democrats really are to the right of the Tories. Not just through pragmatism, but in principle.

The Democrats have always been far to the right of the tories man. There is no comparison of US and UK politics, at least there wasn't.

 

Having said that, I benefitted from minimum wage there back in 92, long before it was introduced here.

Tbf to him though (and I concede I missed this first time around), this appears to have been said in 2012. So it's been dredged up now by the progressive wing to throw at him from a voting perspective. It's all over their channels.

 

So it's not really super relevant unless he still holds those views.

“You’re going to absolutely see significant money behind centrists, moderates, whatever, to defeat Sanders,” said Democratic strategist Andrew Feldman.

“Bernie is absolutely going to see intensified scrutiny. He was never in this position of the frontrunner in the 2016 race, and you’re going to see things from a long career come out that people are gonna go after.”

 

They're going to Corbyn him. So long Bernie... you'll be a terrorist sympathising antisemite before the year is out.

Sanders has got about as much chance of winning as Corbyn ever did. You don’t get to be commander in chief if you call yourself a socialist. It’s a dirty word over there. 
 

He’s also basically a social democrat anyway so it’s entirely pointless and self-defeating.

Honestly though, at 78 isn't he really too old anyway? 

 

I mean, frankly, yes.

It'll be interesting to see how the centrists try to destroy him over the next few months. I do kinda feel like they will have watched how our lot did it to Corbyn and then roll out the same kinds of approaches.

 

I still believe it doesn't matter whatever happens. In fact they may as well let him have this one. No one they've got is going to unseat Trump.

Baffled at this.  You admit Sanders is too old. And apparently Trump is undefeatable? And everyone else? Despite the fact sven Hilary beat him on the popular vote last time?

Yeah I think he's undefeatable indeed.

 

Reality doesn't matter anymore, only that your side wins. And that poll a few days ago demonstrates that Americans are better off now than they ever have been or whatever it was.

 

The democrats will ruin it for themselves because Bernie will take off, the centrists will panic and try to destroy him thus pissing off all the left wingers who would vote for him to the point where they just chuck it in and don't bother - so your centrist has to beat trump with the centrist vote alone as the left concludes they're two sides of the same coin and that it has to win the war in the democrat party before it takes on the war for the nation.

 

Trump wins by being more right wing than the centrist, who desperately has to backpedal to try and win those disillusioned left wingers over, probably by talking about how horrifying trump is.

 

It won't matter though because they'll have had to demonstrate unremitting cuntery to take out Sanders, the left wont budge, and ultimately it'll all end in tears.

I think you're underestimating the will to defeat Trump. I don't think the "horseshoe" thing is happening this time, even if it did in 2016, which is still a little dubious. There's no hardcore left-winger who is going to sit this one out. Personally I would prefer someone further left of center, and I detest Bloomberg (NYC teacher, how could I not?) but I would easily vote for him if it were a choice between him and Trump. I'd vote for the Devil himself if he had a D next to his name and I think there are millions who feel the same way.

Always reminds me of this when he starts doing his hard man act. Hope he meets the same fate

He's got a narcissistic personality disorder. He hates any criticism

He literally posted a clip of Larry David taking the piss out of him a few days ago because he thought it made him look hard. He’s a narcissist, of course, but he's too thick to be insulted by calling him a bully.

If that's the case, surely Sanders can best him then?

 

I'm not trying to challenge here per se, what you're saying sounds encouraging and we really do need Trump gone no matter what.

I believe he genuinely didn't realise that clip was a pisstake
