As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama to Meet with Sanders Thursday

President Obama will meet with Sen. Bernie Sanders Thursday at the White House.

From an statement by Press Secretary Josh Earnest;

The President thanked Senator Sanders for energizing millions of Americans with his commitment to issues like fighting economic inequality and special interests’ influence on our politics.

In addition, at Senator Sanders’ request, the President and Senator Sanders will meet at the White House on Thursday to continue their conversation about the significant issues at stake in this election that matter most to America’s working families.  The President looks forward to continuing the conversation with Senator Sanders about how to build on the extraordinary work he has done to engage millions of Democratic voters, and to build on that enthusiasm in the weeks and months ahead.

As you can see, the White House understands it needs to kiss Sanders’ ass in order not to alienate his millions of voters, who will have to be pacified and coopted so they come out to vote for Hillary Clinton.

  1. OMG — could the pay off be any more obvious.

    Here’s where Bernie, the commie, starts to become rich and powerful and on the DNC benefits for life program.

    Sanders’ supporters — suckers.

  2. Well, I like Bernie Sanders and his academic grandfatherly style , he has been consistent in his political life , I respect that. But if he chooses to cooperate with Obama and Hillary he betrays all his, often young, followers, and then I won´t have any respect for him anymore.
    Obama says that Sanders has “energized millions” with his commitment to issues like fighting income inequality and special interests influence in politics . Meaning, these voters can now, with Obamas blessing, easily support Hillary instead, the other great fighter ( sarcasm… ) for these issues. Oh, he is a creepy snake. Bernie Sanders, please slam the door ! Show them that you are a man of principles.

  3. Barry’s got a packed schedule for a couple of days, hasn’t he? Today it’s lunch with Biden, the Jimmy Fallon show, a couple of fund raisers.

    Tomorrow, Thursday, it’s schmoozing with Sanders to thank him for energizing the Progressive/Marxist wing of the Democrat Party, and, well, that’s about it for Thursday.

    How will Obama reward Sanders? Perhaps name him Ambassador to Cuba? Or put him in charge of the White House barbershop, since Sander’s haircut and self-styled hairdo has always fascinated Obama. It will be an exciting day for both Sanders and Barry, that’s for sure.
