BLOOMBERG ACUSES SANDERS OF TRYING TO BUY ELECTION

Des Moines, Iowa February 7, 2020
“Bernie says I’m trying to buy the election, but in reality, he is the one schmearing the dough and buttering palms in his attempt to get elected. Bernie Sanders is offering money to people in the form of canceling their debt on college loans. That is like handing out cash to pay bills. He also wants to hand out money to people in the form of healthcare. Free healthcare for all! Wonderfull! Uh, exactly what will be the motivation beyond goodwill that will get the best and brightest out of bed to study and practice for years the art and science of medicine? Oh, I know, because Bernie said to. Sorry Bernie, I am using my resources to advertise my candidacy. You are using your resources to promise reimbursement to many of your supporters. Although we’re both millionaires or billionaires, only one of us owes anyone anything post-election.” ~~slater.com©

HILLARY FUMES AS POLLS SHOW SHE IS IN A VIRTUAL TIE WITH DONALD TRUMP

Washington, DC May 22, 2016
“I’m not sure I want to win now. I mean even if I’m victorious and become the first female Commander in Chief, I’d be presiding over a population many of whom would elect a known con-man game-show host to lead them. Look, what am I supposed to do with these rubes? They can be manipulated, connived and convinced to turn over the keys to our arsenal to someone with zero experience and a track record of deception that goes back decades. He even wrote proudly about it in his series of how-to books. Bragging about it really. Saying he had men move around equipment at a future casino site to give the appearance to bankers that his project was underway so that he could borrow money from them. That’s what a con is. Building up confidence in something or someone based on untrue statements or illusions. I mean ask him. He’s not shy about it. So, I’m in a quandary. Even if I win, I’d be leading millions of people who bought the line Trump was selling and wanted him as their leader. I mean they know he makes many of his products overseas and then rails at companies that do the same. He vets his VP candidates by requiring their tax returns but he won’t reveal his own. It’s a do what I say not what I do mentality and his followers just don’t seem to care. I’ll keep running but exactly what kind of a population do I get if I win?” —slater.com©

TRUMP SAYS HIS VICTORY WAS INEVITABLE

New York, NY May 5, 2016
“I am and always will be a winner. I win. And I keep on winning. When you understand the winning mentality completely you begin to grasp what I will do for this country. I will return us to winning status. Like me we will be winners again. Winners who win. And keep on winning. Not winning occasionally or sporadically but winning often and always. Winners win and leaders return their organization, teams and countries,if you will, back to a winning mentality. The US has lost so often for so long we can’t even conceive of what it is like to prevail continually. But I can and I’ll bring that victorious spirit back to America and quickly I might add. Very quickly. I’m not superhuman, I just know how to win. I know the angles. I know the weak points of my opponents. And I know what buttons to press and when. Whether you voted for me or not, know this – You’re about to go for a ride like you’ve never been on before. A ride that leads to triumph after triumph. Victory after victory. Nobody will tread on us and take advantage of our generosity again. We will help people, but we need to rebuild our country first. When your boat is taking on water you don’t throw lifelines to everybody. After all do you want to pull people who are in trouble onto a ship that’s also in distress? No, you repair your ship and then you can reach out to help everyone else. I will repair the SS United States even if it takes more than the currently authorized 2 terms”. —slater.com©

BERNIE SAYS HE’S TAKING THE GLOVES OFF

New York, NY April 14, 2016
“I’m not gonna let them steal this election from the people without a fight! This country belongs to the people of the United States. All the people of the United States. Not just the millionaires and billionaires. Hillary wants a war. She got it! So one of the speakers at my rally in Washington Square Park last night made a comment that she took personally. It was about what you call someone who sells themselves for money. Hey guess what Hillary? What do you think would be appropriate to call someone who does just that? Yeah, maybe a slightly nicer word but the meaning is the same. You give speeches to Verizon, Goldman Sachs you name it. These speeches are really bribes for future favors. What? How dare you call speeches bribes, right? Look, what kind of an ego do you need to really believe that companies and countries really want to hear what you have to say to the tune of millions of dollars. They, as you know, are just trying to curry favor with you now and in the future. You’re looking for their backing and they’re looking for you to promote their agenda or at least not stop their progress. Oh don’t worry Hill dear, I wasn’t intimating that it’s just you. Do you really believe that Japan needed to give Ronald Reagan millions of dollars after he left office to hear him restate what he freely spoke of when in office. Hillary this is your establishments way of accepting dignified bribes. You and the Republicans aren’t fooling anyone. This is boldfaced lobbying and outright influence peddling. In the third world bribes are handed off in satchels full of cash. In your straight-laced above-board inner circle these payments are thoroughly washed by fronting them with business and speaking opportunities. It’s nothing more than a storefront for the political elite of both parties. Hey guess what Hill? The cat’s out of the bag. You are exposed. OK, you may wind up being President but the curtain is gonna be pulled back by me now and after the election as well. And please don’t let one of the unfortunate situations happen to me that seem to follow people on your enemies list. My thunderous youthful minions will run towards your White House with torches ablaze if you try it. Hey, here’s an idea. Why not work with us instead of falling back into your old ways? End on a high note for a change. Be authentic. Be real. Don’t be the eternal chameleon. Try reaching down into your own soul and finding your true self. You may just like what’s there. You probably haven’t seen it in a while. Get re-introduced. Either way though, I’m not going away. You’re gonna need to deal with me now and in the future. You will invite me to the White House for progressive talks. I’ll make it easy for you to recognize me when I get there. I’ll be the same person I’ve been for the last 50 years. Saying the same things. Authentically me. And I’ll be wearing the same suit and tie as well”. —slater.com©

HILLARY TRIES TO STEAL BERNIES FORMULA FOR COOL

New York, NY April 10, 2016
“We didn’t do it. Of all the things I’ve been accused of over all these years in politics, this takes the cake. We’re not trying to steal or emulate Bernies cool factor. Whatever he’s doing or saying that gives him the youth mojo is beyond me but I’ve just got to be whatever I am and I’m certainly not trying to act like anyone else. Look I know that Bernie is the it girl right now but I’ve got gravitas. Gravitas is what a President needs and experience of course and I have a boat load of both of these key ingredients. You want the kids waving signs and demanding free college, call him. You want a President with decades of real on-the-ground experience with leaders of all stripes from around the world, I’m your man – so to speak. OK I get it, kids are altruistic, hopeful, energetic and moral. I remember the feeling. But once you see how the sausage gets made, you become a little more of a realist, trust me. Watching what goes into the political meat grinder isn’t pretty but a good recipe can yield a great tasting meal no matter what it looks like going in. You want someone from the green hills of Vermont belting out a tune from the Sound of Music or a time-tested hardcore DC political dynamo like me? You want hopes and dreams and free stuff from your beloved Bern or a well-seasoned slightly jaded realist who can operate the levers of power in the nations capital? You know I could become a little more unkempt. Let my hair blow in the wind. Wear the same clothes day after day. Be defiant. Act all holier than thou and self righteous. But I need to project potential Presidentiality. I won’t go out and speak to an audience looking like I just woke up. I won’t do it. There’s a difference between a little casual Friday and a disrespectful demeanor. I’d like to think that I can be informal at the appropriate times but by and large this election is about who will lead the free world for four or possibly eight years. I will not forgo the dignity of my hotel room just to pitch a tent and unroll my sleeping bag in Central Park like Bernie is. I won’t sleep in the dirt just to super-pander to the Birkenstock beach club. Of course I do recognize that I am walking a fine line here as I will ultimately need Bernies kids to vote for me. So I need to somehow keep my chin up while he defeats me in state after state. The party presciently put super-delegates in place decades ago to avoid a brief but powerful swell of unwanted populism. This means I have already all but won the nomination. But I need to keep up the image of a struggle to give a kind of psudo-credit to Bernie and his groupies. It’s like walking on a silk tightrope. I kinda already won but my opponent semi-controls a big part of the audience I’ll need for my ultimate Presidential victory. So I can scold him and send him to his room but not too harshly. I can ground him but not the night of a good concert. But I can’t afford to push him too far away from me. That’s because after I’m declared the Democratic nominee, we’ll kill the fatted calf and welcome our wayward son home to the party with open arms”. —slater.com©

Bernie Sanders says underestimate me at your own risk

Burlington Vermont April 30, 2015
Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont says he can beat Hillary and the Democratic machine. Says Sanders, “I have won elections and defeated both Republicans and Democrats before and I will do it again! There is no doubt in my mind that the American people are fed up with the 2 party system and are looking for new thoughts and ideas. I have shown over my career that I can bridge the gap between both parties and contribute to a bringing together of disparate thoughts into a cohesive brand of multi-party compromise. No one need diminish their values and standards, just move a bit closer to their neighbor in a friendly forthright manner.” Sanders was asked about his Socialist ties and the fact that Socialism has never been successful in any country on earth in the past. He replied, “Yes, I know that it has never worked before. And I am aware that the American people by and large do not want such a structure for their country with the American dream and such. But I remain convinced that even if my neighbor just sits on a chair in his front yard whistling at the wind while I work day and night to feed both his family and mine the good will that is generated can power a new way of thinking and acting.” Sanders was asked if he has read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and replied, “I did read the book and found it to be a lengthy account of some rennegade business men and women who are hiding somewhere in Colorado for unknown reasons. Well, I for one won’t stop until we catch up with these AWOL individuals and bring them back into the fold as productive citizens. As President I guarantee that all necessary resources will be used to seek out and capture Ms.Rand and her band of merry men.” –slater.com©
