Things are starting to get REAL in the Democrat presidential primary. Vermont socialist “Bernie” Bernard Sanders has won in 7 of the last 8 primary states (several of them by landslides), and it’s obviously starting to disturb the Hillary Clinton campaign because they’ve begun taking aim at the socialist underdog.
In a recent interview on MSNBC, one of the Clinton family’s closest confidantes, James Carville, had some tough words for Bernie Sanders and his fans.
We’ve had two enormously successful Democratic administrations: Clinton and Obama. We’ve had a disastrous Republican administration in the middle of all this. The Republican Party is cracking up right in front of our eyes; So about 40% of the Democratic Party’s answer to this is, ‘hey, let’s nominate someone who isn’t even a Democrat.’
It utterly makes no sense to me. Somebody has to explain it… Why would we abandon these policies now? I have no idea.
Meanwhile, it’s not as if Bernie is just taking the attacks as harmless. He’s begun using some pretty harsh terminology to describe the woman that he’s been so chummy with in the past. In fact, the Vermont socialist went so far as to say that he believed Hillary Clinton was “unqualified” to be President!
“Let me just say in response to Secretary Clinton, I don’t think she is qualified if she is through her Super PAC taking tens of millions of dollars in special interest money,” Bernie Sanders said during a speech in Philadelphia earlier this week.
“I don’t think you are qualified if you have voted for the disastrous war in Iraq. If you supported the Panama Free Trade Agreement, something I strongly opposed, and as you know has allowed corporations and wealthy people to avoid paying taxes to their countries,” Sanders argued.
