    You deniers still can't grasp what that means about the things Democrats failed to do to get their message to the people, and to encourage the people to believe their own message was getting to the politicians.

    Democrats are so detached from the general public.
    15 Republican candidates also lost to Trump. Trump is the best thing to ever happened to Democrats. They are united like never before because of him. There's a lot of organizing going on. The organizers just aren't running to get in front of cameras like Sanders.

    That may have been the thinking then. But this is Now! And now people are seeing how Trump is being so utterly Ineffective and Costly to them that they will swarm to support the Democratic Party from now on in order to keep their benefits and all that they had with the Democratic Party before! They're learning their lessons the hard way!

    For some of his supporters here to believe that they can pretend that they didn't do everything they could to see to it that Trump was elected is just laughable and kinda pathetic.

    But is the Democratic party learning THEIR lessons?

    They let Republicans win the majority of the governorships and the majority of the state legislatures, and the House and Senate, with the losses piling up over the past 7 years, and they showed no signs of learning why it was that the public was rejecting them.

    And THAT'S what brought us Trump.


    When frustrated people can't get what they need from the allegedly "democratic" party, they hunger for some kind of change. Democrats drove the Rust Belt into Trump's waiting arms.

    Take some responsibility and quit blaming everybody else.
    The sweet, delicious irony of you telling people to take responsibility. Blame Hillary for losing.

    blame Hillary for whiny sore loser Sanders supporters voting for Trump? Nah, they own that. Just like Sanders. He's getting on Democrats last nerve and sooner or later he's going to be publicly called out for it.

    Bernie didn't lose to Trump friendo. Hillary lost, and she doesn't have anybody to blame but herself.

    Sanders is traveling all over the country,picking out the worst hicks he can find. That coal miner was a classic example.

    No,Sanders is only popular to those who cling to that.

    The New Democrats I am watching,such as Congressman Heck today. His great speech in the Comey hearing is not up yet on Google. I watched so many young,really great Democrats today. They are the future of the party.

    Bernie lost the Primary. He is not only old,he is old news and certainly not a Democrat. From a tiny northeast state.

    we're all suppose to pretend like they weren't acting like a bunch of sore losers when Sanders lost. They are saying the same things right now that they said about Hillary Clinton then. But, we aren't suppose to be able to figure out they orchestrated Sanders being in the position he's in now.
