In almost every instance Sanders capitulates to some degree to the overall corporate power structure governing this country, and certainly to the Democratic Party front runner Hillary Clinton. He has doubts about both her and Republicans taking on the billionaire class? Doubts?
His criticism of the military budget is so couched in sucking up that that power ultimately it is laughable. Oh no he isn’t against the military, he only is worried about “waste”, and “budget overruns”. He makes sure that he repeats the MIC mantra of wanting a “strong military” and that “of course ISIS is a terrible organization that must be defeated”. Go Bernie!
For the record yes ISIS is a group of murderous thugs. But Bernie goes on the record here that he is in the club of not calling out US foreign policy in its role of creating ISIS, or using other terrorist organizations for the matter, and certainly he would never utter a single word about how US foreign policy is indeed “terror” as it is being carried out in the ME.
And then this gem…
Well, I think we’ll make that decision pretty soon. Not dissimilar from
what Lindsey Graham had to say. You know, when you’ve got these super
PACs and billionaires able to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on
the candidates of their choice, making sure have you the money to run a
credible campaign is very, very important. And that’s one of the factors
we’re going to have to determine.
So Bernie is essentially saying to be “credible” he has to align himself with what is demanded of a system that has no accountability to anything close to a democratic one.
Bernie won’t run. It is bloody obvious he isn’t.
I meant this not as a reply to tcarlson. Ooops I put it in ye ole wrong place.
