Bernie Sanders has the right narrative
Bernie Sanders arrived in Portland Maine after Super Tuesday and absorbed the adulation of the crowd. The mainstream media narrative was that somehow Sanders had a bad Super Tuesday. Bernie Sanders set the record straight.
"Let me thank all of you for coming out on such short notice," Sanders said. "I think we sent the email out yesterday morning. We were up against a candidate supported by the entire political establishment, somebody almost universally known, someone who has been anointed as the inevitable nominee. Well guess what. She is not so inevitable today. In Iowa, first caucus state we were fifty points down, we ended up in a virtual tie. In New Hampshire we were thirty points down and we won that state big. And last night we had an extraordinary night. In Minnesota we took on the Democratic governor and two United States Senators. And we won there by twenty four points. In the Rocky Mountains in Colorado we took on the establishment there. We won by nineteen points. In the Southwest, in Oklahoma last night we won by ten points. And in Massachusetts again taking on the political establishment, we lost by one point but we are going to end up getting just about fifty percent of the delegates. And in Vermont, your sister state, where the people have known me for a very long time, it was a close election. We only won by seventy two points. And we end up getting all of the delegates. Now given the fact that the pundits have been wrong from day one, I am very excited when I read in the Washington Post today from some writer, .. Quote, all the pundits are calling the race for Clinton. That means we are probably gonna win in a landslide."
Bernie Sanders is optimistic. He believes the revolution will take hold. Many of his supporters do as well. If it is going to happen, it must begin now. If America believe in his values, they better start putting their efforts and their vote where they think it really belong.
