"BIDEN Blasts BERNIE in Attempt To Get VOTES!"
The Jimmy Dore Show (September 25, 2020)
'I beat the socialist': Biden reminds voters 'worried about socialism' that he won the party nomination, not Bernie Sanders -- Business Insider
Jimmy Dore: "I beat the socialists in a pandemic when it was deadly for people to go vote and I told my supporters to go vote anyway and hid behind nationalism and my party did everything to kneecap the socialists for the second time and they succeeded. That's what he means when he says 'I beat the socialists.'"
"Joe Biden thinking he won that primary is like Donald Trump thinking he generated his own wealth."
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden aimed to assure voters by pointing to the fact that he beat Senator Bernie Sanders in the primary -- Business Insider
Jimmy Dore: "Because, you know what they say: 'Gracious in defeat and in victory.' That's what they say. That's why he's saying that, because, you know, he's gracious."
"I beat the socialist," Biden said on Monday. "That's how I got elected. That's how I got the nomination." -- Business Insider
"'That's right. I'm the guy that all the 2020 candidates fell in line for and the media cooperated with to steal the nomination from the guy the people preferred. I'm that guy.' [reads from screen shot] "Hey, Barack Obama wins the Demnocratic primary." [shows screen shot]:
Barack Obama wins the Democratic primary
Released from his self-imposed neutrality, the former president will soon make the case for Biden that Biden has had trouble making himself -- Politico
[1:21] Jimmy Dore: "Much like Ringo and the Beatles, Joe Biden got by with a little help from his friends. That's how he won the goddamn primary. Barack Obama personally called Pete Buttigieg and all the other candidates and told them to drop out, this is your power move, when you have all your power."
[shows video clip of Joe Biden saying]: "Do I look like a socialist. Look at my career, my whole career. I am not a socialist."
[2:16] Jimmy Dore: "I like how he's standing in a warehouse that's full. And do you know what it's full of? It's full of Biden/Harris signs. Full inventory."
The Bern Identity
I am a GenXer and I am very angry
That Bernie is bending over backwards to get Biden elected while Biden's disrespecting Bernie. "I beat the socialist" as a cheap shot to win votes in swing states because Biden has no worthwhile policies to offer those people to vote FOR
I am 79 and I am angry
If I were 18 or 20, I would be very, very, very angry
Young people can transform the country. We must do everything we can to ensure they vote in this election
[2:39] Jimmy Dore: "I don't know what Berie's even saying at this point anymore. I don't even, like, I couldn't write things to make him look dumber than he sounds. I couldn't even make up stuff to make him sound like a bigger cuck than he is. He is the opposite of what is needed at this moment. [reads from tweet by The Bern Identity above]
"Honestly, is there a bigger disappointment in the world than Bernie Sanders?" For me, personally, there is not." My dad punched me so hard twice, I pissed my pants. Less of a disappointment than Bernie Sanders. Punched me so hard knocked me out. I woke up in a pool of piss. That's how hard I got hit by my father. Less of a disappointment than this guy is [pointing to picture of Bernie Sanders].
Good way to alienate your former opponent's supporters after that opponent has spent months trying to get them to back you.
[4:13] Jimmy Dore: "Wow. Joe Biden stabbed Bernie Sanders in the back. Who could have seen that coming."
Obama was a cosplay progressive
Bernie's been working his tail off trying to help Biden and this is what he gets in return?
I don't see why any socialist should vote for Biden.
Bernie signed a unity pledge, the rest of us did not.
[4:37] Jimmy Dore: "Good old Joe. It's almost like he's campaigning for the other Biden.
It always irked me how Bernie would incessantly call Biden his friend when Joe repeatedly stabs him in the back and chest.
That lack of "self respect" from Bernie was my biggest concern
Special Agent Fox "Spooky" Mulder
When Biden was yammering about Bernie having 9 Super Pacs, Bernie should have never let himn off the hook. He should have hammered him all fucking night over it.
Jimmy Dore: "And, of course, he didn't. Because Bernie Sanders' goal was not to win the nomination. Bernie Sanders' goal was to remain in good status with the elite in Washington, D.C. inside the Democratic party. And he did it."
Of course Joe Biden Supported a Republican in a $200K Speech
Biden is a different kind of Democrat. The kind who lavishly praises Republicans who are fighting for reelection. -- Vice
Jimmy Dore: "That's true. So he went and gave a speech to help the Republican beat a Democrat."
87% of Democrats Support 'Medicare for All,' Though Joe Biden Doesn't -- Newsweek
Yale Study Says Medicare for All Would Save U.S. $450 Billion, Prevent Nearly 70,000 Deaths a Year -- Democracy Now!
[6:06] Jimmy Dore: "Look, If we get four more years of Trump, at least we know Bernie and Joe Biden will be tight."
[shows video clip of Joe Biden speaking]: "Paul Ryan was correct when he did the Tax Code. What's the first thing he decided we have to go after? [leans forward, whispering confidentially] Social Security and Medicare. Now, we need to do something about Social Security and Medicare. [leans forward, whispering confidentially] It's the only way you can find room to pay for it.
Jimmy Dore [whispering confidentially]: "Smiling like an idiot. 'Hey, we're gonna cut our social safety nets. The richest country in the world is going to pretend we can't give health care to people. When my own kid gets sick, we're gonna go bankrupt trying to pay for it. We're gonna take a personal loan from Barack Obama to save my ass and my house. I'm the one who set up this system that's bankrupting me, and I'm still not going to help you. That's what a craven, fucking maniac I am.'
[7:27] Jimmy Dore: "I can't even imagine being as big of a maniac. He's a bigger maniac than Trump. Your own kid. You go bankrupt. You set up the health care system that bankrupts your own family? And you still don't want to fix it? I would have to say, that if there was a ... if the health care system bankrupted Trump, I'm sure he would want to fix it. I'm sure he's want to stick it to those health insurance companies. Not Joe Biden. Because Joe Biden is a shell of a human being. He's not a real person. He's just a cash receptacle. And he doesn't even cash in. [??] Here's Joe Biden going to tell you who his friends are." [shows video clip of Joe Biden on Meet The Press]:
Tim Russert: Senator, we have a deficit. We have social security and medicare looming, the number of people on subsequent medicare is now 40 million people, it's going to be 80 million in 15 years. Would you consider looking at those programs? Age of eligibility. Cost of living. Put it all on the table?
Senator Joe Biden: "Absolutely. You have to. You know, this is the thing that advisers say to me: 'Whoa, Don't Touch That Third [Rail]!' The American people aren't stupid. It's a real simple proposition. We have to ... You and I were talking about Bob Dole earlier. I was one of five people -- I was the junior guy in the meeting with Bob Dole, George Mitchell, when we put Social Security on the right path for 60 years. I'll never forget what Bob Dole said. After we reach an agreement about gradually raising the retirement age, etc., he said: 'Look. Here's the deal. We all put our foot in the boat one at a time.' And he kiddingly stepped like he was stepping into a boat. 'And we all make the following deal if any one of the incumbent challengers running against incumbent democratic, republicans, attacks on on this point, we'll all stay together.' That's the kind of leadership that's needed. Social Security is not the hard one to solve. Medicare. That is the gorilla in the room. And you've got to put all of it on the table. Everything."
Jimmy Dore: "So you see who his real friends are. Republicans. Bob Dole. That's his real friend. We're going to protect each other, right? As we fuck over America. Yeah. So you know who his friend's list doesn't include? You."
Joe Biden Says He May Further Increase Military Spending If Elected -- Democracy Now!
[10:05] Jimmy Dore: "I mean you have to because we because we couldn't possibly spend less on endless war, could we? Because he'll always find money for the military. But not [whispering confidentially] 'Medicare and Social Security. We gotta cut medicare and increase the military. We gotta do it.' And he says it with this psychopathic glee in his voice. That it somehow makes him some kind of good person. That he's telling you some truth. We have to deny health care to people. And security in their old age. That makes me strong. To screw over the most vulnerable people."
