Loser Bernie Sanders Does Not Know How To Bargain 1

YouTube has the video Campaign Calls on Bernie Sanders to Lead a New Party.

Nick Brana, former Sanders staffer, says it’s time to give up expecting progressive change from the Democratic Party and that Sanders should lead his base in creating a new party.

Bernie’s statements on this campaign to form a new party shows why he was a much worse bargainer than Donald Trump was. His failure to know how to bargain is why he lost the Democratic nomination, and why he will fail to reform the Democratic Party.

When he made a solemn promise to vote for the Democratic nominee no matter who it turned out to be, he lost all his bargaining power with the Democratic Party. Compare this to Trump’s commitment to back the Republican nominee only if he felt that he had been treated fairly by the party. The Republican Party establishment hated Donald Trump, but there were some limits on what they could do because of his threat to leave the party and take his voters with him.

Bernie told the Democratic Party establishment that they could treat him like dirt, and he would remain loyal to the party. They took him at his word, and treated him like dirt. Being a man of his word, he did remain loyal, much to the dismay of his suppoprters.

He is now making exactly the same mistake. If he does not use the threat to leave the party and take his supporters with him, he has no bargaining power with the Democratic Party establishment. The more he sticks to this loser strategy, the more we have to realize that he is not going to be our candidate.

    The Democratic Party establishment knows how to play Bernie better than he knows how to play them. I wouldn’t be surprised if the establishment keeps Bernie in check by telling him that if he gets out of line, they will take away his position as ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee. If Bernie had the guts, he would respond, “If you take that position away from me, I will leave the Democratic Party and take my supporters with me.”

    And remember Greenberg’s Law of Idle Threats
    Never make a threat you don’t intend to carry out. If you have any doubts about your ability to carry out the threat, do not make it.

    If he cannot see his way clear to make the threat, then the DNC has him by the low hanging part of his anatomy.
