WOW! The Washington Post Goes After Bernie Sanders’ FICTION FILLED CAMPAIGN

Either the Washington Post is trying to clear the way for Hillary Clinton or their staff had a major reality check of some kind. Either way, this editorial is guaranteed to drive Bernie Sanders supporters crazy.

This is brutal:

Bernie Sanders’s fiction-filled campaign

SEN. BERNIE Sanders (I-Vt.) is leading in New Hampshire and within striking distance in Iowa, in large part because he is playing the role of uncorrupted anti-establishment crusader. But Mr. Sanders is not a brave truth-teller. He is a politician selling his own brand of fiction to a slice of the country that eagerly wants to buy it.

Mr. Sanders’s tale starts with the bad guys: Wall Street and corporate money. The existence of large banks and lax campaign finance laws explains why working Americans are not thriving, he says, and why the progressive agenda has not advanced. Here is a reality check: Wall Street has already undergone a round of reform, significantly reducing the risks big banks pose to the financial system. The evolution and structure of the world economy, not mere corporate deck-stacking, explained many of the big economic challenges the country still faces. And even with radical campaign finance reform, many Americans and their representatives would still oppose the Sanders agenda.

The conclusion cuts like a knife:

Mr. Sanders’s success so far does not show that the country is ready for a political revolution. It merely proves that many progressives like being told everything they want to hear.

Read the whole thing.

What an astounding and unexpected take-down.
