Joe Biden’s Super Tuesday route left Bernie Sanders reeling.
Now Sanders hit a huge bump in the road that’s about to destroy him.
And this mistake was the final nail in the coffin for Bernie Sanders’ campaign.
Bernie Sanders has finally figured out that Americans aren’t ready to embrace a socialist president.
After more than 50 years of being a radical who admired every communist dictator who passed, Bernie Sanders is now trying to soften his image and make himself look like more of a moderate.
The Democrat establishment decided to make sure that he didn’t run away with the race on Super Tuesday by convincing Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar to drop out of the race, leaving the moderate field wide open for Joe Biden.
Elizabeth Warren also has dropped out of the race leaving only Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden in the primary.
Things aren’t looking good for Sanders; in just 10 days he went from potential nominee to having limited options going forward.
He’s got to scrape off some of Biden’s minority and moderate voters or the odds for him aren’t good.
He’s attempting to appeal to them in the worst possible way.
He’s trying to play up his connections to Obama.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders released a new ad featuring old, positive quotes from former President Barack Obama.
After a strong performance from former Vice President Joe Biden on Super Tuesday, the independent socialist attempted to draw himself closer to Obama, playing clips where he praises Sanders for being a “fearless” standard-bearer of liberal values.
“Bernie is somebody who has the virtue of saying exactly what he believes, great authenticity, great passion, and is fearless,” Obama says. The quote comes from a January 2016 podcast in which the president praised both Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, noting that he also knows Clinton better than he does Sanders.
“They want honest leadership who cares about them. They want somebody who is going to fight for them, and they will find it in Bernie,” Obama also says. But those comments come from Obama in 2006 while he campaigned for Sanders’s Senate run.
At the end of the ad, Obama says, “That’s right. Feel the Bern.” The clip comes from the 2016 Democratic Convention, just before Obama endorsed and introduced Clinton as the Democratic nominee for president.
This isn’t a winning tactic for Bernie Sanders to use when he’s clearly at odds with the Democratic establishment and running against Obama’s Vice President.
Bernie Sanders was so critical of Barrack Obama’s presidency that he almost tried to primary him in 2011.
Bernie Sanders isn’t going to win over the moderates with this new strategy and he risks angering his own base.
Everyone knows that Bernie Sanders is a radical who would overturn the way of the American government, that’s why his supporters love him and the establishment hates him.
Love or hate, it’s too late for Bernie Sander to try and fool the American people that he’s anything other than what he is.
If this is the best comeback that Bernie Sanders can come up with, it’s game over and Joe Biden will be the nominee.
