Completely on point starting with this: "I was taught at an early age to be suspect of those that made promises and didn’t have a strategy to accomplish them, and as I researched Bernie, he fit that description."

There's one common denominator between the leaderships of Republican and Democratic parties (and erstwhile sanctimonious, Iranian-American Hezbollahis from Stanford, now posing as 'nationalists' and 'patriots') and that commonality is their full fledged allegiance to Neoliberalism, and everything that a savage Capitalism brings with it.

Anti Neoliberal politics of Bernie Sanders is one major motivation for all these attacks on him.
And we shouldn't underestimate the allure and attraction of Neoliberalism for the ruling elite and their faithful servants, including but not limited to: regime lobbyists, erstwhile sanctimonious, Iranian-American Hezbollahis from Stanford (now posing as 'nationalists' and 'patriots'),...

...and the sun was in here eyes...!
It's amazing how none of these Sanders detractors can remember anything about Electoral College and its significance, but never run out of words to smear Bernie.

Is it really surprising that a guy who signed his name in letter to the United Nations complaining that the UN is "too harsh" on Israel is lacking in integrity?

Only imbeciles and political charlatans are still backing Sanders, like those multi-accounting internet trolls masquerading as legitimate dissenters.

They always need a 'big brother' to tell'm how to think, Birnie Sander is playing the role at the moment.Lenin, Marx, Engles, Stalin, Mao are all dead now.
It's like the poor rednecks who follow their big brother, Trump.

Absolutely. Like Hezbollahis, these cretins have their own Ayatollahs whom they emulate. Moscow used to be their Qom, but now it's Washington.

These are their Kurdish co-religionists:

Bernie Sanders destroyed Hillary Clintons by showing her weaknesses rather her long time support and struggle to improve the rights of poor women and families, her support for Iran Deal, for the probability of being the first woman president

Democrats have lost four elections (so far) in 2017. Is this also Bernie's fault?
Democratic party's leadership is as much Big-money, Big-business, corporate Neoliberalism as Republicans.
Now that this leadership is under pressure from party's rank & file, it's making some progressive gestures.
The same leadership is also behind all these infantile attacks on Bernie; hence this drivel of an 'article!'

I find it interesting that an article based in fact, containing multiple reference points as fact-checks, is considered “drivel” yet the ramblings of Sanders, backed by nothing more than arm waiving and shouting, are considered gospel.

As the author so eloquently points out, we need dreamers and big thinkers. But we also need a reality check. Sanders is neither. He’s someone who sold a bill of goods to hijack a party and sign a book deal.

As for the 2017 elections, let's examine that. Forget for a moment the uphill climb each of these elections were going to be. Where was Bernie, supposed leader, when the election was taking place in Georgia? He was in Nebraska with his arm around an anti-choice candidate pretending Ossoff didn't exist. Such leadership and not at all a slap in the face to women; a base of the party he has long cast aside.

My initial reaction to this is “Where was his support? Surely this didn’t help Ossoff.” However, as you point out, those on team Bernie haven’t fared so well themselves so perhaps . It’s almost as if folks are starting to see him for who he truly is.

This article is based in reality and the sooner everyone wakes up to that, the sooner we can rebuild the party, learning from both the good and the bad of Sanders, Clinton, et al. and take this country back.

And, while we're talking elections, I'll just re-post this here for posterity:

"Anyone who thinks Bernie had nothing to do with the results of this election is either in denial, struggling with the guilt of the part they played in electing the current administration or both.

He fracture the party, a party he is not even a member of, buy crafting a stump speech that spoke to the loudest potential group; young white people (mostly men) and piggybacking on decades of GOP lies. He continued the fracture by inciting his followers and never denouncing their behavior, staying in the race far too long and ultimately offering no support when Hillary Clinton won the primary. He continues his work to fracture the party to this day.

Ignorance and bigotry played the largest role in this election but Bernie also played a significant hand."

Democratic party's leadership was hijacked by Neoliberal politics long before Sanders.
Democratic party's leadership continues its adherence to Neoliberalism to this very day.
Neoliberalism is in crisis, so are all traditional institutions and parties associated with it.
None of this has anything to do with Bernie.
Democrats have continued to lose badly in every single election this year. There seems to be something rotten, dysfunctional and out of touch in DNC.
The most significant reason Hillary lost, despite having had couple of million votes more than Trump was the Electoral College.
Al Gore also 'lost' to Shrub because of Electoral College.
Although structural issues and realities such as Electoral College, Neoliberalism,...have no place in establishment politics, but reducing complex structural issues to character assassination does.
Alas, continued cheap personal attacks on Bernie will not change Electoral College (long overdue for change), defeat Neoliberalism, or make Democrats win elections.

For all those myopic friends forgetting Bernie's contributions, just remember what was the most looked-up word of 2015 on Merrian-Webster, and why?
Sanders campaign raised millions of dollars, from the bottom up, not from corporations or multi-nationals. The average of contributions was $23, that's how they raised millions.
Bernie has many limitations but Democrats should kiss his tokhes and thank him for attracting millions of youth to political participation and activism.
But Democratic leadership always kisses the tuchus of big-money only. Maybe that's why they've lost the past four elections.
Makes you wonder who is behind the wheel in DNC?

It's expected that multi-headed agents of the Trans-Atlantic Empire posing as legitimate dissenters on the internet are also ardent boot-lickers of Bernie Clinton-Sanders. It's only natural that the cyber servants of the State Department support the domestic and foreign agendas of Washington and Wall Street, in spite of their Marxist rhetoric. It surely isn't a coincidence that the dwellers of the White House (and the aging charlatans who aspire to live there) and the diasporic pseudo-Marxists both agree on the Balkanization of the Middle East and supporting ethnocentric terrorists in the region. Since the old Soviet master no longer exists, the red vermin have found themselves a new foreign master, true to their old tradition of being fifth-columnists. The stench of MEK and their spiritual followers is really strong here.
