Another campaign camouflage tactic? The following story is rooted in an interview on MSNBC “Morning Joe” show, where Bernie Sanders talks encouragingly about his Republican support. Hard to believe, really. But if he says it, it must be true, right? It’s better to wait and see how many actual conservatives support his socialist agenda. It’s even better to not pay any attention to this claim by Bernie until the pudding is solid.
1. Recruiting Republicans? Or just wishing?
2. He’s right, we’d be surprised.
Via cnn.com “You’d be surprised there are more than a few Republicans for Bernie Sanders out there. Don’t be surprised if we do well with a number of Republicans,” Sanders said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
Sanders said his message is resonating with “working-class Republicans” who face the same struggles that his campaign platform is so directly targeting.
“You know Republicans have to send their kids to college. Working-class Republicans can’t afford to do that. Working-class Republicans have seen their factories shut down and moved to China. Working-class Republicans are equally disgusted about a campaign finance system which allows billionaires now to buy elections,” Sanders said.
Sanders’ message of combating greed and recklessness on Wall Street and the strong hold corporations have over the U.S. economy is one that “a lot of Republicans will respond to … as well,” he said. Via cnn.com
