DNC rejects Bernie Sanders' attempt to remove Barney Frank and Gov. Dannel Malloy from convention rules panel.

Courtesy of MSNBC:

This weekend, Sen. Bernie Sanders called for the DNC to remove to prominent Clinton supporters – Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy and former Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank – from panels that help determine policy positions and procedures for the Democrats because both men have allegedly displayed “political and personal hostility” toward the Vermont lawmaker. 

Malloy, whose state was rocked by the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in 2012, has taken Sanders to task for not being a stronger advocate for gun control. Frank has been even more frank, accusing the senator’s campaign of “McCarthyite” tactics and arguing that “Bernie Sanders has been in Congress for 25 years with little to show for it.” 

The DNC has rejected Sanders’ request – which may wind up prolonging an already ugly rift between Sanders and Clinton forces, which appear to be clashing more over process at this point rather than the ultimate primary result. Sanders has long been an outspoken critic of controversial DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and has endorsed her primary opponent Tim Canova.

Gee imagine that after claiming the DNC is in the tank for your opponent, and bitching to everybody who will listen that the system is rigged against you, that they are not willing to bend over backwards to accommodate your every whim.

I wonder if after Sanders burns a bridge he then bitches and moans that he cannot go back across without getting wet?

When Sanders returns to the Senate after doing everything he can to undermine this process I imagine he will receive a chilly reception from the Democrats.

It will be reminiscent of the reception that Ted Cruz received when HE returned with his tail between his legs.

      Looking forward to that campaign against Sanders in 2018. Sanders is the epitome of someone who stay in gov't and gets nothing done. Hillary is not that type of politician. She will shake things up.

      Can a perpetually combative man who—despite his career successes (or perhaps because of them)—sees life as a series of fights to be won, scores to be evened and counterpunches to be delivered, be trusted to shape the foreign policy of the world’s most consequential power?

      Donald Trump, who last week finally clinched the Republican nomination for president, may be correct: The world is often cruel and unforgiving, filled with threats and challenges that require toughness and resolve. In his 2007 book Think Big, Trump described his worldview in utterly uncompromising terms: “The world is a vicious, brutal place. It’s a place where people are looking to kill you, if not physically, then mentally. … People are looking to put you down, especially if you are on top.”

      His lifelong response has been to put everyone else down, or at least anyone who challenges him. Call it Trump’s “counterpunch” approach; it’s one he’s articulated again and again in different forms and forums, and it’s plainly central to his worldview: When someone hits you, you hit them back 10 times harder.

      No, it has become clear that Bernie Sanders is not the least bit interested in the Democratic Party. He has been using the party since he "joined" in 2015. Democrats in good faith accepted his participation in our primary campaigns but he has lost every ounce of sympathy from the vast majority of Democrats. He's not even running for reelection in Vermont as a Democrat. So he will have been an actual member of the Democratic Party for about 12 months.

      “It was not a good report for Secretary Clinton. That is something that the American people, Democrats and delegates are going to have to take a hard look at,” he told CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “I mean, everybody in America is keeping it in mind, and certainly the superdelegates are.”

    Bernie Sanders, Graceless In Defeat, Demands Say Over The Democratic Platform

    ...We’ll have to see how Bernie plays it. If he wins California he’ll be feeling his oats. If he loses it narrowly we can probably expect another week of “the system is rigged” and resultant prickliness to follow. If she defeats him by more than four or five points, even he might finally accept reality.

    Bernie Sanders’ Fresno, California Rally: The Photos You Need to See

    Bernie Sanders hosted a huge rally in Fresno, California's Fresno Fairgrounds on Sunday, May 29. Paul Paul Theater was set up for 5,000 people, but the venue was overwhelmed by the number who actually showed up, Fresno Bee reported. There were so many people arriving for the rally that they had to close the gates and leave a huge crowd of people outside, listening on loudspeakers. Sanders' speech lasted for more than an hour. He acknowledged the longshot odds of winning, but also that the key to taking the nomination is in California.

      @6:35 - I imagine the Democrats shouldn't ignore 20,000 registered Democrats. I'm not sure how or why the Democrats should pay attention to thousands of people who aren't committed to the Democratic Party.

      Bernie keeps saying he is bringing so many people into the party - but I don't hear of any surge in registration. I hear about big rally's. I hear a lot of complaints from non-party members that they aren't allowed to vote in the party's primary. Go figure.

      Thank you, 9:08. Anyone can show up at a rally. And you are right-we have not heard about a surge in registrations, and we have not seen a surge in voters either. All we hear is whining that 'they' couldn't vote. Well, gee, follow the rules for your state. Bernie should have and didn't. And Mr. Democrat has not even changed his party affiliation in Vermont, so unless they had an open primary (meaning GOP voters could screw things up if they chose to) he didn't even vote for himself.

    It should all be over on June 7 after the New Jersey primary is done. And then the Rigged-Election-Derails-Bernie trope will hit critical mass. Hopefully, some other shiny object will distract the Bernie Bros from disrupting the Democratic Convention, but I doubt they will stop and think long enough to realize they lost because they were outnumbered and out-voted.

  26. Two points:
    One - we Democrats need to stop fighting each other. While in the Senate, Bernie and Hillary voted the same way 93% of the time, so we would be fine with either one. We need to come together, but bashing Bernie and his supporters won't help.
    Two - Yes, he draws big crowds. But I am a Hillary supporter who went to his rally out of curiosity. While standing in the mile long line waiting to get in, I chatted with seven strangers in line near me. One of them was also a Hilkary supporter there out of curiosity. I expect there were more of us among the thousands. So not everyone at the rallies will be voting for him.

    I don't see much diversity at his rallies.

    I liked Bernie at the beginning. I decided to be neutral since I didn't know much about him. Did personal research back in October. OMG. Deadbeat dad and unemployed. Read an article, as mayor, he never reached out to the black community. I saw a hypocrite. I still gave him the benefit of the doubt. Everytime I heard him speak ... I got nauseated. Something is wrong with this guy.

    Turns out - my gut instinct was right about him. He literally makes me sick. World leader- never.

    Hillary is ready to be president on Day One. She is the most qualified person... ever. I voted for President Obama in 2008. Hillary loves our country, a true public servant. Bernie is a selfish brat, with narcissism traits. He is a single issue candidate and does not have a broad perspective of anything. He's dumb.

    A new poll of California shows Hillary Clinton leading Bernie Sanders 51%-38%. If the poll proves to be right, a double-digit loss would be lights out for one of Sen. Sanders’ last arguments to be the Democratic nominee.
    According to Hoover’s Golden State poll:

    Hoover’s Golden State Poll, administered by the survey research firm YouGov and designed in conjunction with Stanford University’s Bill Lane Center for the American West, finds Clinton holding a 13-point lead over U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (51 percent to 38 percent).
