This seems a little homophobic don't you think? Can you rephrase what you mean in a different way?

Have people actually listened to what he said or are you just reading the words?

Here is my take on it.

Hey Pete. If capitalism works so well then why are so many people being left behind by it? MFA who wants it will not work and you know that. Capitalism is an evil. Period. It rewards the rich while leaving the rest behind.
Quit lying about Bernie taking away people's health insurance. You know that he is replacing it with Medicare for everyone with no more copays and no insurance toadies telling people that they can't have the medical treatments that their doctors order.
Guess you forgot that during Obama's tenure the Bush tax cuts were supposed to expire, but he made them permanent. He also cut food stamps by $5 billion. So exactly why do you expect us to believe that you would change anything when democrats haven't even been trying to since Reagan?

"We need to change the tone to one of belonging."

What the hell does that even mean? It's not the toxic tone of Donald Trump. It's the damn things that congress has been doing for so long.

Pete thinks that he is the person who will be the best person to elect more people down ticket.
Tell the dccc to stop being a roadblock to progressive candidates. Pelosi is not going to protect our privacy because she and democrats have given them away already. ByeDone wrote the patriot act and Obama signed it as well as wrote the NDAA that took away habeous corpus you dumb nitwit.

Hey, Pete -- new means new, and not recycled "new kind of politics" from 1992 (later recycled by Obama in 2008). Most of us get it now; you're selling more of that Clinton/Obama snake oil and we don't want it.

to the photo had me thinking it was saying that PB had won. I was surprised if PB won NV as that didn't seem in the cards. It wasn't clear who was referenced by "his".

the McKinsey & Company senior partner and junior MBAs that were part of a project I worked on way back in 1979. At a certain point, I told the MBA that I didn't have time to meet with him (the polite version of what I really wanted to say).

When did you stop beating your wife?

Sanders has not said anything since the briefing became public that is near forceful enough toward denouncing this activity. A foreign nation is interfering in our election. Don’t you think Sanders should be screaming his indignation at the top of his lungs?
My question remains. Why are the Russians supporting him? There is a value judgement in that decision. (It is NOT my value judgement.)

Otherwise, this just reads like confirmation bias from anti-Sandersland.”

Is this the way you will convince people to be enthusiastic for Sanders if he is nominated?

You'd think that people would be wondering just what Russia is doing to interfere with the election because it's just vague wording. Russia wants to sow discord in the country. Like this country isn't f'ck'd up already and Russia is going to start it. But now that the word is out there the anti Bernie folks are pissed that he didn't tell us about it sooner.

"Never under estimate how dumb Americans can be." Didn't someone say something like that?

Heh...

Go Vlad!

ideological revolution that leaves out most Democrats, not to mention most Americans’. His Medicare for All is not the way to go because....

"One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism has been by way of medicine....If you don't do this, one of these days you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was like in American when men were free."

Edit: Actually, babbling on in your dotage years seems a pretty cheap price to pay for medical care as a right instead of a privilege.

I do know, however, that "unity" for Buttigieg means unity between the CIA, McKinsey, the Harvard Alumni Association, and, as a very, very junior partner, the American people.

Additional note: imagine you are comparing resumes. What does "former mediocre mayor of South Bend, Indiana" qualify your applicant for?
