Internal Bloomberg campaign memo shows the urgency of stopping Bernie Sanders

February 19, 2020

  For several weeks now we have been reading stories about how nervous the Democratic establishment is at the ever-increasing possibility that Bernie Sanders will be the party’s nominee. The prospect has become so troublesome to the party that the Democratic National Committee changed the rules so that Michael Bloomberg would qualify for the debate tonight in Las Vegas, hoping beyond hope that he can do what the other candidates cannot and that is stop the momentum Bernie Sanders has been gathering.

  Now an internal memo from the Bloomberg campaign has leaked and in it the campaign talks about how close Bernie Sanders is to a victory and the “dire circumstances” surrounding the possibility. His solution if for all of the other candidates to drop out so that he can take on the Vermont socialist by himself. Here is more:

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s campaign team wants the rest of his Democratic opponents to drop out of the presidential race so he can take on Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, man to man, a memo obtained by Axios said.

Sanders will become unstoppable if former Vice President Joe Biden doesn’t bow out, Kevin Sheekey, Bloomberg’s top strategist, said, according to Axios on Wednesday. The self-avowed Democratic socialist will have too many delegates after Super Tuesday if the race does not winnow down, he explained.

“The fact is if the state of this race remains status quo — with Biden, Pete and Amy in the race on Super Tuesday — Bernie is likely to open up a delegate lead that seems nearly impossible to overcome,” Sheekey said.

He added: “I don’t think many people understand the dire circumstances here.”

  Of course it is natural for a candidate to want his opponents to drop out of a race to give him a better chance of winning, there is nothing unusual in that. But this seems to go beyond and you can sense the urgency and the sense of need to stop Bernie Sanders, and with the Democratic leaders changing the rules to help Michael Bloomberg take the debate stage you have to believe the party is just as worried about Bernie Sanders and his supporters.

  If you were a Bernie Sanders supporter in 2016 and you were upset about the way the Democratic party screwed him and you thought it would be different this time you had better think again…

    The shivs and ice picks were on full display last night. What the DNC forgets is this one truth: Bernie is a Soviet and Cuban trained gutter fighter. The DNC and its clown circus are all graduates of the Cream Puff Academy. Let’s see who catches the shiv in the showers.
