So much for the Democrat Primary civility! Bernie is calling Hillary a disaster after winning big in WV.
Hillary threw the miners and the entire coal industry under the bus and the people said “absolutely not”!
While the discussion this season has been about a contested convention for Republicans, it looks like it will happen at the Democrat primary instead.
Sanders’ campaign manager Jeff Weaver is calling for free delegates to, “reject Mrs. Clinton and embrace Mr. Sanders”:
“For months, Bernie Sanders has out-polled Hillary Clinton against Donald Trump, and often by extraordinarily large margins. Because we must do everything we can to defeat Trump in November, our mission is to win as many pledged delegates as we can between now and June 14,” when the primary season ends, Mr. Weaver said. “Then we’re going to have a contested convention where the Democratic Party must decide if they want the candidate with the momentum who is best positioned to beat Trump, or if they are willing to roll the dice and court disaster simply to protect the status quo for the political and financial establishment of this country.”
Well, as I severely disagree with Bernie on the direction of the country, I also think he would be a disaster as well! But at least you can say one thing about Bernie, “He’s honest!”
If Barak Obama would have been as honest as ol’ Bernie in 2008, we would have never had a President Obama!
The Democrats are definitely in a mess. Their front-runner is facing felonies, has incredible negatives in even the opinions of her own party, and has coughed her way through the primary.
On Tuesday, Clinton lost the West Virginia primary 51% to 36%, a stark contrast to 2008, when she trounced Barack Obama, 66.9% to 25.7%.
But perhaps what’s more shocking is the raw WV vote total.
In 2008, she received 240,890 votes but this year she netted 84,176 votes, a 65% decline.
What a season it has been!!
