And Mr. Sanders himself does not have a reputation for leadership; in Congress, he is seen as more of a lone wolf, known more for introducing symbolic legislation than for methodically building constituencies. NYTs 5-23-16
This poor man has gone through life with his head in the clouds. He has never accomplished anything significant. This begs the question why would Vermont voters return a man to the Senate year after year who is only keen on symbolic legislation.
More important, why would voters want such a dreamer as president; as leader of the free world; as commander-in-chief.
It boggles the mind.
Conventional wisdom says he will never be president. But the real issue is that millions of Americans have swallowed his rhetoric and bought into his fantasy world where government can solve all our problems, where taxing only the wealthy can pay for everything we want in life; where there are no consequences; where mediocrity is acceptable.
Most disturbing is that these supporters don’t consider the big, global picture; they don’t ask the hard questions. Their mushy minds simply absorb symbolism and ignore reality and the hard work to actually solve problems.
