Looks like Sanders is actually the liar

    From your article ...
    Of course! Spine curvature is a common way we identify people. It's so distinct and memorable.

    Well, we know from the Bern surrendering the mike so easily to BLM is that he's spineless.

    So regardless curvature, that is not Sanders.

    Assuming it does turn out to be a picture of someone else I don't think this will hurt him in the primary, and he isn't likely to get further than that anyway.

    Agreed. The Democrat party will never accept a presidential candidate who can't be trusted to tell the truth.

    Well, if you look at the other two pictures in the article, the person in those pics looks like the same person in the picture in question. This should be relatively easy to confirm. What baffles me is why is the GOP trying to push these fake conspiracies? It is well documented that Bernie attended the school and gave numerous speeches. What would be the point of saying a photograph of someone else was him? What would he have to gain?

    Truth. Meh. All we care about is finding someone who'll oppress conservatives.

    Probably just in case Hillary's campaign somehow fall apart and Sanders gets the nomination. As it is with his policies he will have a hard time drawing in the moderate voters, however if the GOP nominates someone like Carson or Trump he probably can do it. So I would guess that they are trying to sabotage him to make moderate voters less likely to go for him and make sure that it will be a competitive race if he gets past the primaries.

    Sure, I understand what they hope to accomplish. I just don't think that this is any kind of bombshell regardless of the outcome of the investigation. It is not as if the picture is being used by Bernie as proof of something.

    I personally think the GOP is cared ******** of running against Sanders. They've been shaping their party machinery against Hillary since 2008 (and before), if they suddenly have to go against Sanders, whom not only has policies the vast majority of the population agree with (when divorced from the context of the election) AND he can speak truth the lies that the GOP has wrapped itself around...well I just don't know what they've got to counter with besides the tired "socialist" label.

    Brer GoP's eyes got very large. "Oh please Brer Democrats, whatever you do, please don't throw me into the briar patch!"

    The trouble you guys are in is that the Perfect Storm that brought Obama into power has faded out. Now there's a tidal wave of Americans who are fed up with illegal immigration, incompetent big government, corruption on high, lousy economic growth, and people who milk the system while most Americans work and play by the rules.

    Neither Hillary or Bernie are going to have any luck selling America more government handouts.

    Backlash is a'comin'.

    IIRC, the same thing was said approximately four years ago during the last POTUS election, with someone in this forum ending each post with the same word each time: TEA.

    We know how well that worked out.

    Yeah. It's worked out so well that Democrat officeholders are becoming an endangered species. You guys just keep doing what you've been doing for nearly seven years. Please.

    I'm pretty sure it is still the same as always, you've got about 45% or the population supporting each party and the 10% in the middle plus which side can get the biggest turnout will decide it. If the GOP nominates someone with no political experience they will lose to either Hillary or Sanders. That is why they are trying to pull them both down in the hopes of getting democrats to not like either candidate and just stay home or at the very least pull some of the moderates away from the democrats, either to the Republicans or to a third party as a protest vote.

    Yet Democrats have won the popular vote in 5 of the last 6 presidential elections. their mistake was in not focusing enough on state legislatures so now the Republicans have the house because of their safe gerrymandered districts. They have the Senate because in 2010 the economy wasn't recovering as fast as some people would like so the Tea Party got in, those senators are now up for reelection and a lot of them will go and the democrats will have a good chance at winning back the Senate.

    I think Bernie is actually more about helping the Americans that play by the rules and still get screwed. There are people who WORK check-to-check, pay most of America's taxes and are fed up with their financial situations, not things like immigration that doesn't affect them directly.

    Who's doing more damage to America: poor people taking welfare checks or corporations like GE and even Apple doing every "legal" thing they can to avoid paying their fair share of taxes while taking all of the benefits of being American companies? Apple with their stack of cash? Who are the real freeloaders here?

    You are aware that the Democrat party has been taking a beating during the Obama years, right? If Republicans hadn't been stuck with lackluster candidates the last time, Obama would have been a one-termer.

    This time we've got a bunch of good candidates who highlight just how weak the usual suspects the GOP Establishment usually foists upon us Conservatives (Bush, Kasich, etc.) are.

    If we get a Conservative candidate who will actually fight for the presidency, Republicans will be fired up and at the polls. Without the votes from felons and illegals, Democrats just won't be able to come up with the numbers.

    The Republicans had the most electable candidate get the nomination last time, and they still lost. If you nominate someone other than one of the establishment candidates such as Bush, Kasich, or Rubio, you'll see a huge landslide in the electoral college for the Democrats (The popular vote will likely be closer, but still go for the Democrats). As for other areas, I haven't seen much to indicate if the Democrats are getting things together on the state and local level, but the Senate should be easy to retake, the Republicans have 24 states to defend to the Democrat's 10 as a result of the 2010 elections, a lot of those Republican senators will be vulnerable.

    Democrats have come up with the numbers in 5 of the last 6 elections without the votes from felons or illegals, and they can do it again.

    Untrue. Republicans will of course never vote for a Democrat presidential candidate who doesn't tell the truth. Which is the only reason we didn't vote for Clinton, Gore, Obama, etc.

    See, that's where you're wrong. Romney was a decent guy but he was up against the Democrat party AND the media. In that situation, he should have made the biased media an issue like the current Republicans are. But he was too nice a guy.

    I'll even take Trump if I have to because, in the words of Abe Lincoln: "He fights."

    Doubtful. America has seen the results of the last seven disastrous years:
    • Poverty and homelessness for children: High
    • Poverty and unemployment for Blacks: High
    • Poverty and unemployment for Hispanics: High
    • Likelihood of a recession in 2016: High
    Then there are the social issues like failing to prosecute illegals. And we have the modern day equivalent of hippies on America's campuses destroying first amendment rights while conducting witch hunts for those who don't meet their Social Justice Warrior prejudices. And there's the backlash to the LGBT overreach coming too.

    Plus, we'll have Russia in the Middle East causing turmoil, as in Cold War 2.0, and it'll be the Democrats' fault.

    America will welcome strong Conservative values because that's where the majority of Americans are at now. Thanks, Obama!

    But do keep a stiff upper lip. Can't let your side down, old boy.
