Think Tank Warns Iowa Democrats: Supporting Bernie Sanders Is Good for Donald Trump

The Third Way, a center-left think tank, will send roughly 300 prominent Iowa Democrats a memo on Tuesday warning that supporting Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary is what “Trump wants you to do.”
The memo, which was obtained by TIME and first reported by Iowa Starting Line, comes less than a week before the first-in-the-nation caucuses in Iowa on Feb. 3, just as Sanders appears to be solidifying his support in early states. Multiple polls now indicate that Sanders is among the top two candidates, either narrowly leading or narrowly trailing former Vice President Joe Biden.
“Before you vote, we urge you to consider at least a few of the many things in Bernie Sanders’ long record in public life that make him the Trump team’s ‘ideal Democratic opponent,’” the memo reads. It then offers a list of attacks that the Trump campaign could use against the Vermont senator, who identifies as a democratic socialist: “They will call him a socialist…They will say that he thinks the middle class wants to pay more in taxes…They will say he’s backed anti-American radicals.”
“Committed Democrats, like us, would vote for Sanders against Trump,” the memo warns. “But no Democrat remotely as far left as Sanders has ever won the presidency, and swing voters in crucial states would reject the radicalism of Sander’s background and ideas.”

Third Way – center left? Third way is right of center. Assholes. And if my only choice was between Trump and Biden, I would not pick Biden. Or any of the other Vichy Dems.

The whole purpose of Third Way was to purge FDR from the collective memory of the Democratic Party.

The Third Way needs to hit the highway and drive straight over to the Republicans where they belong. ‘Tis a pity you can’t tell them on SV that we are coming to purge them from the Party. We’re taking it back, and they will simply no longer have a place in it. They wanted an intraparty civil war; now they’ve got one.

Oh brother. As if Trump wouldn’t attack Biden or Warren?

Hey Turd Way…. might want to look at this…….
And of course, that was his 4th election. And had he lived, there probably would have been a 5th one. Maybe even a 6th.
If Bernie Sanders were 20 years younger, I would personally push for repealing the 22nd Amendment the day after he was inaugurated, so history could repeat itself.
