Presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont told the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle yesterday that he won’t even attempt to compromise with the Republicans. Is this what we’ve become, children throwing tantrums when we don’t get our way?
From the article at sfgate.com:
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders says he learned from the mistakes President Obama made in his first term — they taught him that if he wins the White House, he won’t be able to compromise with Republicans in Congress. “I think a keen mistake that the president made is that he refused to recognize that reality — that these guys (Republicans) were never serious about compromise,” the presidential candidate said in a meeting with The Chronicle’s editorial board Tuesday. “He kept extending an olive branch, and he kept getting his hand slapped,” Sanders said. “I do not believe that right-wing Republicans are prepared to work with a progressive president.” The way to break that logjam, he said, is for people who support Sanders’ “political revolution” to contact their members of Congress directly.
