An emerging hallmark of the Sanders campaign is his insistence on staying positive. He says he won’t go negative. Like any good and bright, shiny object, he’s stuck to his guns on this point. Except he hates guns. So he’s stuck to being Mr. Happy on the campaign trail. Sort of.
Take the recent release of his medical record. Bernie put them out there for the world to examine. Conveniently, Hillary hasn’t released hers despite lingering concerns over Madame Secretary’s health. After all, she did take a nasty fall a few years ago. She was hospitalized. And as her State Department emails have shown, for nearly half a year afterwards her mental state was often foggy.
Is Hillary’s health medically sound enough for the rigors of the Presidency?
Or the Sanders ad that ran in Iowa that hints at Wall Street monies fueling campaign contributions. (In the interest of fairness, Sanders receives a lot of money from SuperPACs too – The Atlantic reported in Dec 2015 that SuperPAC National Nurses United for Patient Protection had given more than $500,000 to the Sanders campaign). Sanders anti-Wall Street and anti-SuperPac rhetoric is well known.
Which Sanders opponent has deep and established ties with Wall Street?
Worth mentioning too is the recent Sanders line at an Iowa campaign. He stated that Hillary was in Philadelphia for a fundraiser. Then Sanders said he would “rather be here (in Iowa) with you” to raucous applause.
In other words, who’s the down home candidate and who’s the distant and out of touch candidate that can’t even bring herself to campaign in the state hosting a caucus event right around the corner?
Is it any wonder some millennials are drinking what Sanders is peddling faster than a town drunk can kill a bottle of Listerine on a Tuesday morning en route to the nearest underpass; faster than the subject of an FBI investigation can delete compromising emails from a server she isn’t supposed to have in the first place.
He’s as good as a walking, talking meme. Snark personified. The poster boy – err senior citizen– for passive aggressive attitude.
