He is the one who cost us the House by abandoning progressives and recruiting moderate veterans (an example of their cowardly strategy because they forfeit the national security argument to the right) and former Republicans who voted against Obama’s policies. Brilliant.
Now Democrats are too cowardly to get behind Bernie except for actual voters.

Go fuck yourself Rahm. And take your corporate insurance shilling brother with you.

You and all the other lying grifting motherfuckers who took the party of FDR and LBJ and morphed it into this vile, corrupt, corporatist, Fascistic thing that bears little resemblance to the party that gave us the New Deal, led us to victory in World War II, and the only partially accomplished vision of the Great Society.
We want Bernie precisely because you and your ilk don’t want him, and we’re going to get him in spite of you. As for all your bullshit about “moderates” winning and progressives losing, it is you and your ilk who cost the Democratic Party over 1000 positions across the country during Obama’s time, you cravenly poltroonish loser.
But I’ll be nice and stop here and not tell you what I really feel.

The Democratic party will become a smoldering heap if Rahm gets his way.

In a proper Democracy we would have many choices but because Rahm and his friends have fucked Democracy over so bad they’re stuck with who ever we decide. Imagine that lol.
After decades of having NO choice it feels good to finally support the ONLY choice for once.

That said, he also suggested on This Week today that his Democratic opponents in this last debate should have hammered him on his centrist approach to gun control. My question for Rahm is, “do you know where the NRA holds their annual convention each and every year?”
Hint (if you need this): the exact same location where the last debate was held.
But, hey, maybe arguing for gun control will be a good idea in the next debate in the Deep South! How could that possibly not work for your campaign?
Like I said, Rahm is not as bad as I thought he would be, but … he is bad.

All you “Fucking Retards” voting for Sanders.
And Who’s “We, Kemosabe”?
It’s just going to be way too much to expect the least bit of introspection from these types and how they have made the present, so. They don’t understand that anyone who gets to know who they are and what they do, despises them.

Didn’t you introduce the clown theory that to hold the Democratic majority,”WE” needed centrist and “blue dog” Democrats because progressives or liberals could not win?
Aren’t you the F bombing COS in the Obama administration who cost the House in 2010 after Democrats had the House and Senate?
And then after that, didn’t you become the Chicago Mayor soon only to have more than 19,000 shootings and 4,000 murders in your first administration there? According to the Chicago Police Department, the average number of murders under you was 541. The average number of murders per year prior to you was 463.
You speak for no one anymore, much less who WE want on the ticket. I think we are making that clear with every subsequent day.
Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

The part that jumped out at me, was Christie saying that Bernie wouldn’t drop out last time when Hillary “had enough votes”… but no one ever acknowledged that it was all sleight of hand with superdelegates that gave her the lead, while his strength is in numbers, from his grassroots supporters.
Here’s hoping it’s us grassroots for the win this time.

like Bernie Sanders! So which side will win here?
As far as I’m concerned we only have one choice, nominate Bernie or lose to Trump!

He promotes that “Image” and “Advertising” without actual value, that is the road to ruin.
It may work for a little while, but it becomes a disaster to those snared by these charlatans.
