no, its because the discourse of politics has degraded to the point that calling someone a liar does not even bother to raise an eyebrow. i didnt think much of anything when al gore said he invented the internet.Bernie Sanders Pierces the Fox News Bubble
Third, on a night when the moderators repeatedly challenged Sanders on his statements, raising concerns, there was one big claim they did not even question. “Whether you’re a conservative, a moderate, or a progressive,” Sanders said, “I don’t think the American people are proud that we have a president who is a pathological liar. And it does not give me pleasure to say that.”
Under any previous president, moderators would have expressed shock at such a statement. But it is so obviously true that the sitting president is a pathological liar that even moderators on Fox let the characterization stand. “Trump cannot even tell the truth as to where his father was born,” Sanders said. “It’s really that crazy. His father was born in New York; he claims he was born in Germany. If you can’t even tell the truth about where your father was born, it’s hard to believe anything he says.”
I read the article, and for whatever it's worth it sounded like Bernie killed it. He was faced with skepticism but won over the audience on several issues. If he can battle the smear campaign geared at "evil socialism" and explain he's for social DEMOCRACY I think he's got a shot.no, its because the discourse of politics has degraded to the point that calling someone a liar does not even bother to raise an eyebrow. i didnt think much of anything when al gore said he invented the internet.
oh yeah, that socialist really pierced the fox news bubble <huge eyeroll>. the man couldnt even stand up at his own rally for himself by letting BLM take over the mic-- you think jellyfish sanders can stand up to serious pressure?
LOL! you call that sharing the spotlight? they took over the whole rally from him to discuss what they want. he shouldve told them, at the very minimum, to please keep quiet, stop disrupting, and wait until he was finished speaking. but hes got no backbone at all. hes truly weak and gutless.Letting other people speak, sharing the spotlight etc is not a sign of weakness. If anything it shows the lack of an overinflated ego and a “me me me” complex that has absolutely no place in politics at all.
The man has stood on the same principles and fought for them for DECADES, that is not weak nor spineless. Allowing other people room to speak, knowing when to fold and wait to fight another day are GOOD qualities. What was he supposed to do? Throw a temper tantrum and divide people even further? How exactly would that have served his end goal?
There are other effective forms of leadership that don’t involve ego driven machismo or bullying and quite frankly we are in desperate need of them.
I'm really growing fond of Colonel Wikerson! He had a great quote in the interview:Trump's Latest Iran Sanctions Show an Unraveling of US Foreign Policy
