Posted on 02/14/2020 1:26:47 AM PST by Libloather
Establishment Democrats are panicking about the rise of democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and the slide of former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 race, Fox News contributor Guy Benson said Thursday.
Earlier in the day, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was asked to weigh in on the state of the party following Sanders' New Hampshire primary victory and insisted that party leaders are "calm, cool and collected," adding that when members disagree about the best candidates, "thats politics. Its a messy business.
"Calm, cool and collected so much so that she is ripping up pages of the State of the Union address?" Benson asked Thursday on "The Story"
"Look, I think that if she had her way, she would absolutely want to help nudge voters away from Bernie Sanders," he added.
"I think Pelosi is looking at this situation and saying, 'Maybe its not useful for me to weigh in on this,"' Benson told substitute host Ed Henry. "'Let people decide what theyre going to do. Dont put my thumb on the scale' ... but some of her members, some of those moderate members who are majority makers, they are blabbing to reporters all over this town saying, 'We cannot have Bernie at the top of the ticket or I am totally cooked.'"

Rs should slam EVERY opponent on the question of whether they support a communist.
We’d win the house back.
The only supply we may be low on is courage.
Maybe Trump will give them more.
What is the difference between a "democratic socialist" a "socialist"...and a "national socialist"?
Will the Democrats running for the House and Senate endorse Bernie if he is the Candidate in November?
It doesn’t matter how many times the talking heads try and sell me on this theory that the Rats are afraid of Bernie Bro Sanders, I AIN’T BUYING. He is not fundamentally different from the other White Boys they are putting up there.
A democratic socialist is a socialist who thinks the revolution can be accomplished, at least in part, through the ballot box or will work for votes while the comrades are not ready to shoot their way into power. The Democrat Party has for a long time been implicitly the American clone of the Social Democrats of Europe out of which the Communists directly came.Bernie is making the implicit explicit.
They are all communists now. The ones who think they are not communists are the ones who still think there is a difference between the two beyond the old saw that “Communists are Socialists in a hurry.”
A “democratic socialist” is when two wolves and a sheep vote on who is for dinner.
A “national socialist” is when the two wolves can’t wait to bother voting so they just eat the sheep.
A “socialist” is when wolf professors debate the fine art of eating the sheep—and when it gets to be dinner time they eat the sheep.
It is far too late for Nancy to do anything about it, she will lose her position, period. Nancy will go down in history as a completely failed, corrupt and exceptionally partisan speaker.
“Liberty” is two wolves confronted by an armed sheep.
Sorry folks, Nancy Pelosi has a chemical abuse problem,. better known as alcohol abuse or drug abuse....period!!!
Every Freeper should cross-over and vote for Bernie in their state's Democrat Primary.
That's what I'm going to do here in Illinois.
I proudly support Operation Chaos 2020.
She’s 80 years old. What she should be panicking about it the nearness of meeting her Maker.
‘Operation chaos’: How some conservatives are working to disrupt the South Carolina Democratic primary
You have no idea the smile that post just put on my face this early in the morning ...... :-)
The goal of socialism is communism - v.i. lenin
Operation Chaos is a serious mistake. We dont need even the appearance of people switching to the Dem party, and we need to concentrate on supporting Trump and getting our own good candidates down ticket.
Also, Bernie is the only one who has a chance of winning in todays radical-left Dem party and even winning the presidency with todays radical left voters. So why make his support look even greater?
Agreed. There is no way Bernie gets the necessary votes with everyone splitting the votes in the primary. The convention will be brokered! Bernie will not win on the first ballot... the SUPER DELEGATES will choose their nominee. Bernie will be left out to dry. Why? HE IS NOT A DEMOCRAT! They will punish him for having an "I" next to his name. Honest Democrats will tell you that Bernie is not a Democrat AND they publicly speak about how they hope to screw him over. They are not even hiding it! The Democrats simply want to appease Bernie voters to give them the impression that they are on the same team. They are in a quandary ... when the Super's choose someone besides Bernie they will have to deal with the Berniacs burning the Milwaukee Fiserv Forum to the ground.
