|Oh boy, do YOU have a rude awakening coming!|
Bernie Sanders questioned President Barack Obama’s leadership in a new interview, suggesting that he would be able to close a divide between Americans and government that the Obama administration has left open throughout his presidency.
“There’s a huge gap right now between Congress and the American people,” Sanders said in an interview with MSNBC that will air Thursday on “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.” “What presidential leadership is about [is] closing that gap.”
Sanders acknowledged that Obama has tried to bridge the divide but said he hasn’t succeeded. “But I think what we need, when I talk about a political revolution, is bringing millions and millions of people into the political process in a way that does not exist right now,” he said.
Seriously, WTF Bernie?
If Sanders thinks that the ideological divide in this country is the fault of President Obama then he must have had his head buried in the sand for the last seven years.
And if he seriously thinks that things will be ANY different if he was in the White House, well then he is too naive to take seriously as a candidate.
Here is what a Hillary Clinton spokesperson tweeted in response:
Bernie Sanders just lost the benefit of the doubt from me.The idea of Bernie Sanders, who has little to show for his 25 years in Congress, giving leadership lectures to President Obama is absurd.— Brian Fallon (@brianefallon) February 11, 2016
