Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren is furious. Politico published a report on Saturday that leaked a secret Bernie Sanders internal memo. He sent his minions out to ambush Warren on the Iowa warpath.
“I was disappointed to hear that Bernie is sending his volunteers out to trash me,” she told Iowa reporters. “Bernie knows me, and has known me for a long time. He knows who I am, where I come from, what I have worked on and fought for, and the coalition and grassroots movement we’re trying to build.”
All’s fair in love and politics. Bernie was exceptionally gracious back in 2016 when the Democrat National Committee stabbed him in the back. He didn’t seem to mind that all the campaign funds got siphoned over to Hillary.
After the dust settled, he turned the other cheek and headed for his new beach house. That’s probably why he didn’t think twice about symbolically slitting Warren’s throat now.
Until now, Sanders avoided attacking her directly, simply relying on his message to the far-left progressives that his version of the “Medicare for All” scheme is the “better way.” He patiently waited until he could bushwhack her along the campaign trail.
Politco printed a memo “containing a script.” It spells out word for word the exact propaganda that boots on the ground Sanders volunteers would be feeding the Iowa voters.
The Socialist Senator from Vermont instructed his young, energetic, character assassins to insist that Warren only appeals to the elite, “highly-educated, more affluent people,” not people like you find in Iowa. Also, Warren could never in a million years fire up the Party base “enough to beat President Donald Trump.”
When Warren’s Iowa scouting party got back to the pow-wow after ringing doorbells all day, all of her brave volunteers carried the same message. “People loved the senator from Massachusetts but were concerned her liberal stances would not draw enough broad support to defeat U.S. President Donald Trump in November.”
Kristen Marttila was one of the ones who endured sub-freezing temperatures on Saturday, to knock on doors in Mason City, Iowa. She’s beginning to think that Warren’s campaign is going down in flames like Buddy Holly’s plane, which ended up in a nearby cornfield.
According to Marttila, she had to tell her chief, “They really like you – they might even like you the best, but they are really scared to vote for who they like the best, because they’re worried that not enough people feel the same.” The 37-year-old lawyer is used to getting the feel of a jury.
Voter Michael Marth, a 68-year-old retired farmer, says he still hasn’t made up his mind but “I still think she’s going to scare off a lot of voters.” His wife, Leah, is leaning toward Biden, “to get rid of Trump.”
Fran Henderson likes Bernie but just because she likes his record on issues “like the Iraq war,” isn’t a good enough reason to vote for him. She’s afraid of higher taxes. “I don’t think he’s going to bring the independents that we need to win. We need the independents and we need the unhappy Republicans.” Right now, Amy Klobuchar scores the most points with her.
In Davenport, Iowa, on Saturday, Campaign workers were passing out “Bernie beats Trump” signs. Bernie himself assures, “the way you defeat Trump is talk to working people in this country who are so exasperated, so tired of working longer hours for lower wages, so tired of working for 10, 11, 12 bucks an hour and not being able to afford to maintain their family with a dignity that family deserves.”
He wants to make America into Venezuela.
