What Bernie Sanders said after meeting with Obama

Thank you all. Let me begin by thanking President Obama and thanking Vice President Biden for the degree of the impartiality they established during the course of this entire process. What they said at the beginning is that they would not put their thumbs on the scale, and in fact, they kept their word, and I appreciate that very, very much.

Our campaign has been about building a movement, which brings working people and young people in to the political process to create a government which represents all of us and not just a handful of wealthy campaign contributors. We will continue doing everything that we can to oppose the drift which currently exists toward an oligarchic form of society, where a handful of billionaires exercise enormous power over our political, economic and media life.

This is the wealthiest nation in the history of the world. We should not be having millions of senior citizens and disabled veterans struggling to put food on the table, because of inadequate Social Security benefits. Phone Post 3.0

We should not have the highest rate of childhood poverty of almost any major country on Earth. We should not be having Americans in inner cities, in rural communities, on Native American reservations who have life expectancies lower than many people in Third World countries.

We should not be having many of our young people leaving college deeply in debt. We should not be having in this great country an infrastructures which is crumbling when we have millions of workers prepared to rebuild that infrastructure and in the midst of all of that, we should not be having a situation where Wall Street, corporate America and billionaires are failing to pay their fair share of taxes.

These are some of the issues that many millions of Americans have supported during my campaign. These are the issues that we will take to the Democratic national convention in Philadelphia at the end of July.

Donald Trump would clearly, to my mind and I think the majority of Americans, be a disaster as president of the United States. It is unbelievable to me, and I say this with all sincerity, that the Republican Party would have a candidate for president, who in the year 2016 makes bigotry and discrimination the cornerstone of his campaign.

In my view, the American people will not vote for or tolerate a candidate who insults Mexicans and Latinos, who insults Muslims, who insults African-Americans and women. Needless to say, I am going to do everything in my power and I will work as hard as I can to make sure that Donald Trump does not become president of the United States.

I will, of course, be competing in the D.C. primary which will be held next Tuesday. This is the last primary of the Democratic nominating process. The major point that I will be making to the citizens of the District of Columbia is that I am strongly in favor of D.C. statehood.

The state of Vermont, which I represent, has about the same number of residents that Washington, D.C. has except we have two United States senator and one Congressman with full rights while D.C. does not. That does not make any sense.

Also, I look forward to the full counting of the votes in California, which I suspect will show a much closer vote than the current vote tally. I spoke briefly to Secretary Clinton on Tuesday night and I congratulated her on her very strong campaign. I look forward to meeting with her in the near future to see how we can work together to defeat Donald Trump and create a government which represents all of us and not just the one percent.

Thank you very much. Phone Post 3.0

And yet the OG braintrust is sure the Sanders voters are going to vote Trump.

LOL@ Impartiality....


President Barack Obama on Friday said presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has a "long record that needs to be examined" and insisted that the race for the White House is "not a reality show."

"I think I just want to emphasize the degree to which we are in serious times and this is a really serious job. This is not entertainment, this is not a reality show. This is a contest for the presidency of the United States," Obama told reporters in his first public comments about since Trump's GOP rivals ended their presidential campaigns.

Obama did it for 8 years.

attjack - And yet the OG braintrust is sure the Sanders voters are going to vote Trump.

 

I aways said there will be a certain percentage of crossover votes.  CNN reported this morring that a recent poll showed there would be an 11% crossover.  The crossover voters would comprise those that emphasis the trade issues, campaign finance, and outsider status  At one time I was interested in voting for the Trump for some of these issues mentioned but would also consider Sanders for the same reasons. 

 

Irrevelant now though because I'm voting Johnson.

Kind of ironic with how many volunteers and him having more in donations from more people than anybody ever.  Not really fitting with the image of his supporters looking for a handout.

Fuck sanders. I think he would be happier running in China where his political views are more suited.

No shit. I dont want free shit, I just want a level playing field.

Bernie will fall in line with Clinton, along with a good portion of his supporters.

This is the beginning of the end.

I don't follow the "free shit" comments associated with Bernie. Is this something people picked up from viewing Fox programming, or an actual understanding of what Bernie wanted to accomplish once he became the potus?

I get the socialism angle but the association of "free shit" and socialism are off base. Just people being juvenile i guess.

Jane Sanders: Bernie & I will vote for Hillary if we have to & hope his supporters follow their lead.
