Time to make the DNC feel the bern

If Bernie had any guts, he would announce at tonight's debate that he's leaving the party and running as an independent. This is very embarrassing for that pathetic party.

Wishful thinking (one I might like to see but still wishful)!

They reached a deal, so the war is over.

Bernie's team went too far, so if anything they should he booted him out.

The DNC seems to be completely in the bag for Hillary. Why else would they have Saturday debates unless they wanted to limit exposure to challengers?

I agree that Saturday Night is an awful time for a political debate to be televised. People don't like to pay attention to serious news on Saturdays. That's why so many local newscasts are "mailed in" and why controversial decisions, P.R. releases containing bad news, etc. are often released on Saturday.

I also agree that the DNC overreacted and think Bernie did the right thing by suing them.

The media has really shown their colors by how they reported this whole incident. Bernie's team screwed up, but so did the DNC. By resting blame in the lap of one or the other, it becomes telling who the news organization is leaning toward.

Of course, Trump has has over 80 hours of coverage to Bernie's one hour with the national media.

Beanies been at it for 40 some years with a similar message... It stopped making news in 1975...

Trump is new and more controversial and that's why he gets the attention. Not saying its right but that's the way it is...

This from the guy that supports a party being led by Donald Trump. Hilarious. Utterly hilarious, and totally typical.

The "party" is not being led by Donald Trump. Trump's support comes mainly from people that are fed up with current party leadership. Establishment Republicans, the folks running the party as it now sits, would be overjoyed if Trump crashed and burned and are plotting, planning and wringing their hands in an attempt to make that happen.

Yeah right. That's why he's slipping the polls. Oh wait....he's not. But that's ok, you still have Ted Cruz. :barf

You will be very lucky if you don't lose the House too along with the Senate. Hillary is already picking her cabinet.

Hillary is better than Bernie, who clearly is nothing but a talker

He couldn't hold a job before public office.

Bernie is red meat to the base. Those people love him. I'll say this for him, he's honest. He'll tell you what he believes, no BS about it. But, he'll never go anywhere.

And guys like you are great Turkey. There's just not enough guys like you to win a campaign in America. Bernie just isn't for the mainstream.
