Bernie Sanders/Elizabeth Warren 2016
I want to shoot myself for mentioning 2016 but I was only half joking when I tweeted that last night. I mean how fun would it be, after years of the fake "Obama is a socialist" spin, to have a real Socialist run? And what's not to love about the way Bernie Sanders talks?
“In a time of disfunctionality in the Senate, and all kinds of absurdity, this probably takes the cake when you filibuster your own” bill, the self-described "democratic socialist" lawmaker told MSNBC's Ed Schultz Friday evening. “The American people want action and it is undemocratic, it is unAmerican when a small minority can deny the majority from going forward.” [...]Yes I know he is never going to President, but he is a helluva spokesman for the liberal point of view. I've long thought he never gets the attention, or the affection, he deserves.
“On the other hand, the majority in this country has the right to rule, has the right to make decisions. Obama won a huge victory. We won 25 out of 33 elections in the Senate. We won seats in the House.”
