While it’s unlikely to affect the hard core utopians who have been fighting hard for Bernie Sanders’ grand American socialist revolution, it’s pretty much time to call in the dogs and piss on the fire for the demagogic old coot. With Queen Hillary having just dumped an industrial sized can of whup-ass all over Sanders on Super Tuesday III and with a lock on Dem superdelegates, it’s time to crush the geezer like a pesky bug and pivot towards the general election battle. The Democrats are getting increasingly restive over the possibility that Mrs. Clinton will have to face Donald Trump in a mano a mano battle to the death and need to move on with that phase of the drive to reoccupy the White House. Emperor Barry is pretty much finished with the dew-eyed dreamers, freeloaders and aspiring Marxists as well and is moving to get the donor class to close ranks behind Hillary.
The damned liberal New York Times is reporting that “Obama Privately Tells Donors That Time Is Coming to Unite Behind Hillary Clinton”:
In unusually candid remarks, President Obama privately told a group of Democratic donors last Friday that Senator Bernie Sanders is nearing the point where his campaign against Hillary Clinton will come to an end, and that the party must soon come together to back her.
Mr. Obama acknowledged that Mrs. Clinton is perceived to have weaknesses as a candidate, and that some Democrats did not view her as authentic.
But he played down the importance of authenticity, noting that President George W. Bush — whose record he ran aggressively against in 2008 — was once praised for his authenticity.
Mr. Obama made the remarks after reporters had left a fund-raising event in Austin, Tex., for the Democratic National Committee. The comments were described by three people in the room for the event, all of whom were granted anonymity to describe a candid moment with the president. The comments were later confirmed by a White House official.
Mr. Obama chose his words carefully, and did not explicitly call on Mr. Sanders to depart the race, according to those in the room. Still, those in attendance said in interviews that they took his comments as a signal to Mr. Sanders that perpetuating his campaign, which is now an uphill climb, could only help the Republicans recapture the White House.
Mr. Obama’s message came at a critical juncture for Mr. Sanders, who had just upset Mrs. Clinton in the Michigan primary and has been trying to convince Democrats that his campaign is not over, despite Mrs. Clinton’s formidable lead in the delegate tally.
Mr. Obama has been careful in public to avoid disparaging Mr. Sanders, given his deeper history and relationship with Mrs. Clinton. Mr. Obama also does not want to alienate the liberal voters who have flocked to Mr. Sanders.
Those in attendance described an urgency in Mr. Obama’s tone as he suggested that Democrats needed to come together to prevent an opening for the Republicans, whose leading candidate is Donald J. Trump, to exploit.
Bernie never had a chance, the Dem establishment had both thumbs on the scale from the onset and while he enjoys a cult following – especially with young slackers and old hippies – it was never going to happen for him as a member of the blue jackass party. While the efforts will now begin to gently nudge Bernie out of the race it remains to be seen how his deeply that his avid worshippers will be in denial – and whether they will resort to violence, something that they seem to be wired for as was evident by last Friday’s breaking up of a Trump rally in Chicago.
It’s going to be a bitter pill to swallow when Sanders takes the high road – like he did over the criminal bitch’s damn emails and Goldman Sachs speech transcripts – but the old man is going to end up giving her his endorsement. There was no other way that this was ever going to end outside of the Vermont cadaver saying “thanks for the ride suckers”.
