# Was the fix in?

50 views

Did the sudden withdrawal of Klobuchar and Buttigieg and (along with 'Beto' O'Rourke) their endorsement of Biden mean that the fix was in to stop Bernie?

Hmmm...

Beats me. I haven't bothered nor had the time to bother with those bozos. Nothing would surprise me anyways.

Nothing there surprises me any more. All the democrats have done is hand the next election to Trump. So be it.

I wouldn't vote for that old commie nor the ex dipshit vice president.

I'll admit that I looked a lot at Bloomberg and though he was the only decent candidate they had but they backstabbed him out now too.

I have no problem with Trump and it looks like four more years of him. Have to admit, he is great for entertainment!

"I wouldn't vote for that old commie nor the ex dipshit vice president."

Well put, Rooster

Except the ex vice president isn't an ex dipsh*t; he's still very active in the latter department.

I wonder what was the problem with Bloomberg, that the Deep State did not want him? Back around 2008 maybe, I was really considering him...not so much now, but I would still take him over Biden.

Maybe it is as simple as Biden being their most nearly ideal puppet?

Tink i had not thought of that (being gullible)...but yes I think we must consider the possibility.

In 2016, I went all in for Bernie...even donated his average $28, my first ever political contribution and that while I was homeless too! (Prolly my last-ever too) But Bernie let us down; after being forced out by DNC dirty tricks, he obediently trundled along behind Hillary, supporting her. I disapprove of Trump, but he is preferable to Hillary Clinton by far. Bernie missed his moment, he caved, and now I know what he is made of, he has lost me...no more of my$28 for him!!!

ima vote for FDR, I think, yes the one who died in 1945.

* *  *

Or maybe I will write-in for the old Libertarian, Ron Paul for POTUS.

Oh and your ode is absolutely splendorous, 's delightful!

Tink, I just listened to a report on NPR, and Bernie has apparently had the spine to actually say something very similar to your speculation. That for these candidates to withdraw so abruptly, just before Super Tuesday, and throw their support to Biden -- well that seemed to him rather suspiciously calculated to undercut his campaign.

This report also mentioned that Michigan is considered must-win for Sanders; he took it from Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primaries, and then it went to Trump because all those rusty folks just refused to vote for her, no matter what.

And now, Washington State primary is this coming Tuesday, so we will see about that!

Yes, Bernie did say that, but I also heard him say he would support Biden, if Biden took the nomination. Of course this may have been a wink-wink, nod-nod to his supporters... "I have to say this, but feel free to vote your conscience if the DNC Establishment screws me over again."

I imagine Washington will go for Bernie, like Cali did.

Well it's now 11:14 AM here on the Pacific raincoast, we will soon know!

Still too close to call this morning at 8:55 EDT.

Yes...I just checked prolly 1 PM your time, and still cannot call WA State. Last night, Biden and Sanders were separated by about 2000 votes!

+1

Still the same, 2000 at 2 pm EDT, with 67% of the vote counted.

Tink it's coming up on 9 PM your time the day after, so I will go look again. I did see Bernie's speech (one of them), and he says when his crew talks to people all across the country, they say they prefer him but will vote for Biden because Biden has a better chance against Trump and they want to throw out Trump at all costs, as the priority. (Sheesh)

* Nope, as of a few moments ago WA is still undecided, according to NY Times. All the other results are in, everything to Biden except North Dakota, Sanders got that.

+1

Well, as of Friday, March 13, Biden is about 2% ahead, with about 93% of the vote counted. Sheesh, this is as slow as Iowa.

Yes, I saw...been checking daily!

I don't care what country you live in, I think "the fix" is in whatever hemisphere.  I firmly believe that there are great power brokers (deep staters?) who pull strings and ahem, "manage" things for those of us in lowly estate.  I'm no conspiracy theorist, but I firmly believe that we would all be shocked if we knew the truth about the way deals are decided, and by whom, with all of those hands going back and forth across our seas.

I think they broker economies, cultivate chosen individuals and manipulate everything to advantage.  Not sure about anyone else......but to be a fly on the wall on those secret Bilderberg meetings.  I can only imagine, and I'm sure there are similar meetings that happen across the globe.

[sigh].....anyway, sunny and almost 70 here today in the extreme northeast.   I'll take it.  There are better things to contemplate I suppose.

Well, considering all the disasters of the first half of the 20th century, the "fixers" can't be all that smart.

You must be in Maine, then, Freeranger? We have been stretching toward 60*F here in coastal Washington State, but nothing like 70 yet...must be lovely!
