This is how a majority of us feel.
Mitchell Hayward

Yeah, this is pretty much ridiculous from you.

“This is how a majority of us feel. Clinton is moving the democratic party in a direction that we desperately don’t want. It’s our right to have someone represent us. If the democratic party no longer represents the Bernie supporters, you expect us to just go along with the party? Many people want a third party, if the Democratic party keeps moving right, we will make that third party a viable party.”

Uh, this is a primary process. Clinton is moving the party in what direction? She’s not far off from Obama. Her voting record is actually very similar to his (she’s actually slightly more liberal than he was according to the bipartisan group DW-NOMINATE). This whining from you is rich, though.

“Also, you say we are holding the party hostage. I can see how Clinton supporters could think that, but it’s more of the fact that Bernie CLEARLY will do better than Clinton against Drumpf. I am scared shitless that Drumpf will become president and our damn party is sending the most unfavorable candidate in history against him. It’s just a disastrous situation.”

Are you kidding with this crap? First and foremost, Bernie has hardly been vetted on a national stage. Why do you think he polls better in meaningless national polls? The fact that you think those polls means anything shows me that you’re a relatively new voter. National polls at this time mean nothing. Bernie has hardly been vetted and has not been attacked at all by the right. Clinton has been vetted and attacked for years. Bernie can only go down. Clinton will stay about where she is or go up.

Kasich, for example, suffers from the same thing that Bernie does. He’s hardly known and polls better against both Clinton and Sanders than either of the other candidates do. I suggest you tune in to a 538 podcast where they discuss how poor of a representation national polls are this time of year and how little you should pay attention to them.

Clinton will wipe the floor with Trump. Period.

“And you can say tough luck to Bernie supporters, as long you’re ok with us saying it right back when you come canvassing at our residences in October and November. I want to see the party unite, but the Clinton camp has continuously discredited us, told us we don’t know what we’re talking about, and pushed us away from the party. Stop blaming us for the ugly climate that she has created within the party. Start demanding for her to stop with this ugly campaign and to hold at least an ounce of honestly and integrity. Until that happens, we will be with Bernie. And until we can say that we feel comfortable with Clinton, you bet your butt we’ll fight as hard as we can for Bernie to be the Democratic Nominee.”


How old are you? Legitimate question. You’re saying the same garbage that Clinton supporters said in 2008 when Obama voters (like myself) told them to shut the fuck up and stop whining. The thing that you clearly either don’t remember or didn’t pay attention to is that Clinton voters, by and large, were MUCH more anti-Obama than Sanders voters are with Clinton. The climate of 2008 was incredibly nasty and makes this election look like a cakewalk between two nice candidates.

And you’re seriously blaming Clinton for creating some ugly climate? Are you serious? I’m not sure how you can say that with a straight face. Sanders is the idiot who sued the DNC when his own staffers were accessing info that they weren’t supposed to. That’s when this all became nasty and when his supporters thought something was being “stolen” from him. Guess what? His campaign was solely and squarely in the wrong and he dropped his lawsuit the other day.

What “ugly campaign” is she running? I don’t see her surrogates calling folks they disagree with “corporate whores” and such.

“It’s time to start working together. So I ask you Clinton supporters, get with the realization that a Drumpf presidency is inevitable if you keep up with the downright disgusting attacks to our camp.”

Uh, that’s not really how this works. Clinton is going to be the nominee. It’s inevitable. At this point, she needs to work to bridge the gap between Sanders and Sanders has to tone done rhetoric against her. This is not the job of one group. It’s the job of everyone. For you to be so selfish and think only one side has to do work speaks volumes to me. You claiming one side needs to do all the work and stop all the attacks shows just how out of touch you are with how this process works.

I’m not a Clinton supporter, also. I am a Martin O’Malley supporter and went over to the Clinton camp after he left. I was an Obama supporter in 2008.
