    Yup...like I've said before, unfortunately for some people, the only way to make themselves look good is to try to make someone else look bad.

    Heard Bernie this morning bashing Pete because of his campaign donors.

    Yeah, for me, Bernie and Warren are just too far left for me to consider.

    Fortunately, we won't have to find out.

    Presumably Trump is also too far right to consider, right?

    Which supporters are we talking about here? The noisy online ones? Do we know for a fact that those are really his supporters? Remember that it's in a lot of people's interest to stir shit up amongst Democratic campaigns so that supporters of one particular candidate start saying "I'll only vote if my guy is the candidate". I have yet to encounter an actual Bernie Bro in the real world.

    Even if you hate Bernie, it's in your interest to have him be the candidate, because otherwise Bernie Bros will always be able to say "BERNIE could've beaten Trump!!!!"

    Also, apparently Mike Bloomberg is one of them:

    When I worked in Wisconsin for nearly 20 years anyone that new I was from Oregon always made fun of the left coast and all the tree huging old hippies with that weird liberal way.
    Most of them were democrats on Harleys. If Bernie wins the midwest I'd be very surprised. They will like Amy as she's one of them and speaks their language.

    Why would anyone not a, “Bernie bro”, care if his supporters can say they would've beaten Trump. Its like Blazer fans saying they would've beaten the pacers in 2000, no one outside of Portland fans cares.

    Soon we will all be Bernie Bros. Resistance is futile: you will be assimilated.

    That’s a perfectly legitimate criticism of a presidential candidate. It’s not a smear if it’s factual.

    I care and I’m not a Bernie bro. I personally just don’t like seeing our elections run into the ground through corruption and cronyism, no matter the party involved. This whole debacle was predicted to happen by “Bernie bros” long before the caucuses and now everyone’s calling them crazy.

    Well, it only seems to work on Bernie's supporters. Supporters of other candidates (except Yang) overwhelmingly say they'll vote for the nominee no matter who it is. But only about 50% of Bernie's supporters say that.

    So I guess maybe Bernie's supporters are more susceptible to this type of shit-stirring than most people?

    Refusing to vote against your values is not “shit-stirring”. It’s called having integrity.

    “Blue no matter who” is a bullshit bully tactic and a license for the corrupt DNC to choose your candidate for you, using whatever nefarious means they see fit.

    Oh, ok, so it's ok for Bernie people to refuse to vote for other people, but if supporters of other candidates don't vote for Bernie, it's because 'shit-stirrers' are turning them against Bernie? [I realize that I am combining yours and Rasta's points in this response, and that you may or may not agree with each other's viewpoints]

    You'll have to explain how that's a 'bully tactic'. How is anyone bullied by someone saying 'I sure hope you vote for the democratic nominee, once there is one'?
