1. I believe the youth movement is a short term trend brought about by unrealistic promises.

4. "We are sophisticated." {facepalm}

 

25 years in the Senate and the Sanders revolution has gone nowhere. I don't mind a revolution but isn't it about time we admitted he isn't the right one to lead it?

7. You have an interesting definition of 'revolution' if all it means is 'somewhere'.

 

Sanders has done some great things during his 25 years in Congress. What about that equates to 'revolution'?

10. Elizabeth Warren has had more effect on legislation than Sanders.

 

She knows how to assess her opponents and sway fence-sitters. Sanders does not. I don't understand why some have to see Sanders as a hero. He has flaws, just like everyone else. One of those flaws is that he does not work well with his colleagues. Which is kind of a big deal.

11. It's not about Bernie. It was never about Bernie. It's about the truths he speaks.

 

Lots of people here seem to pretend they don't get that. Don't be one of them.

8. Integrity requires someone do the right thing 100-percent of the time.

That's Bernie. That is Bernie's movement, as his supporters know that the Revolution is about restoring political power to its rightful owners:

13. Ah, of course it's something authored by a True Believer.

 

Nothing worth taking seriously, in other words.
