Former President Barack Obama’s top lieutenants are eager to poke every conceivable hole in Bernie Sanders’ resurgent bid for the Democratic nomination. But ask about a coordinated effort to stop his ascending campaign and you’ll get crickets.
Less than a month before voting begins, Obama has declined to offer a preferred pick to take on President Trump in 2020, only occasionally waxing philosophical about the perils of moving too far left and reminding voters to be “rooted in reality” when exploring nominee options. But as Sanders gained new flashes of traction in recent weeks, the former president’s lack of official guidance to halt his momentum, and the scattering of his inner circle to rival campaigns, have hampered any meaningful NeverBernie movement.
Indeed, the most striking aspect of Obamaworld’s response to Sanders on the rise—flush with cash, an uptick in the polls, and unusually frequent hat tips about the merits of his character from his rivals—is the lack of a cohesive one.
Seasoned Obama operatives who spoke to The Daily Beast concede that Sanders is likely to be a major player through the end of the primary, with several agreeing there’s little to no consolidation around one anointed candidate to blunt his momentum. In fact, while pointing to his massive cash hauls and loyal base of supporters, the thinking among Democrats close to the former president is that they are hoping the Vermont Independent flames out on his own.
“He’s never going to run out of money,” one former top Obama adviser acknowledged when asked by The Daily Beast about the chances Sanders could secure the nomination. But it’s not enough of a concern to plan a big strategy around, the source said. “He’s going to be a zombie candidate. You can go anywhere and still be dead.” WTF??? Assholes…

Twisted logic. Who is president? Who’s candidate lost to said president?

Obama’s legacy is Drumpf. Period.
When the going gets tough, the tough help each other.

“Seasoned Obama operatives.” Yeah, seasoned with corporate rewards for selling out Obama’s supporters.

If you, Mr. President Obama, and your sycophants really want to help out, figure out a way to stop Trump not Sanders. But then you would have to admit, to yourself, your role in Trump being President wouldn’t it. But you probably don’t see much wrong with Trump, you being familiar with assassinations and all, other than him harming your legacy. You would also have to admit how poor a selection your VP was.

It was the same thing in 2016 election only this time they see Bernie as more of a threat.

Obsessing over stopping Bernie? So much for Trump being the number 1 bad guy, worst human in history, biggest threat to mankind, must be defeated at all costs, if ever there was vote blue no matter who it is in 2020, blah, blah, fucking blah.
All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.

Re highlighted statement: it is incoherent. Not only do they lack a plan, they lack the ability to form a logical sentence.
