[WATCH] Bernie Sanders Says He Can Beat Hilary Clinton

We want some of whatever he has been smoking.

Bernie Sanders claimed that he could actually defeat Hilary Clinton in the race for the Democratic Party’s nomination for President in 2016 while appearing on the CBS weekly news show “Face The Nation” yesterday. We know that as a candidate he must say such things, but come on!

Of all the wild and unbelievable campaign promises that presidential candidates make every four years in America, this one really takes the cake. Bernie, listen to us, you at least need to preserve just a little bit of credibility if you are in the race to promote your ideas.

Lets face it! You’re a 73 year old Jewish socialist with a Brooklyn accent.

Sanders told Face the Nation Host Bob Schieffer, “In my view, there is a massive dissatisfaction in this country with the corporate establishment, the greed of corporate America, and the incredibly unequal distribution of wealth and income that currently exists.”

“We won’t outspend Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush, but we will raise the kind of money needed to run a strong campaign, ” he added.

Sanders also said that he wants to see the controversial Supreme Court case Citizens United overturned and will only appoint judges to the court who will vote to do so.

“People don’t think that’s a good idea. As a result of this disastrous Citizens United Supreme court decision, clearly the billionaires – Koch brothers and others – are owning the political process. They will determine who the candidates are.”

“Let me say this: if elected president, I will have a litmus test in terms of my nominee to be a supreme court justice. And that nominee will say that we are going to overturn this disastrous supreme court decision because that decision is undermining US democracy. I do not believe billionaires should be able to buy politicians.”

Citizens United was the Supreme Court case which pretty much ended limits on how much people and businesses can spend on political campaign spending. One needs only to create a Political Action Committee, have no direct coordination with a declared candidate, nor formally endorse or criticize a candidate, and he can spend as much money as he wants.
