Former President Barack Obama is worried by the upward ascent of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the presidential primary polls, according to sources within the Democratic Party, and he may come out publicly against the openly socialist candidate.
Fox Business host Charles Gasparino announced the news on Twitter today:
SCOOP: Dem Party sources who have spoken w @BarackObama say former prez is growing increasingly anxious about @BernieSanders rise in the national polls & where the avowed socialist would take the country; he is considering a public statement addressing it more now @FoxBusiness

Obama is far from blameless in Sanders’ rise as a political leader, as he helped to create the monster that is hijacking the Democrat Party and taking it to the far left. Obama endorsed Sanders in 2006 and stumped for him on the campaign trail:

Years later, Obama now wants to stifle Sanders because the Vermont Senator’s brand of socialism, which aims to cut corporations down to size and protect workers, is different than Obama’s brand of socialism, which empowered corporations and did nothing to protect workers while relentlessly demonizing white Americans.
Obama surrogates are already publicly trashing Sanders as more Democrat voters unite behind him.
“He’s beginning to consolidate the Left in his party,” said Jim Messina, who was Obama’s former campaign manager, during an MSNBC appearance. “He has a relationship with these voters, he’s been campaigning with these voters for now six years, he knows New Hampshire voters really well, and people are beginning to come to him.”
“But in the general election, it’s a message that I think is going to get him killed. I think he’s the worst candidate in a general election for exactly that reason,” Messina added.
“You think Bernie is the worst candidate?” asked Morning Joe co-anchor Willie Geist.
“I don’t think there’s a question about it,” replied Messina. “I think it’s very clear to me that these swing voters, that I care about, the Trump-Obama voters in Midwestern states, Bernie Sanders is not the candidate we need to beat Donald Trump in November.”
Obama’s former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also released blistering attacks against Sanders in recent days.
“He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” Clinton said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”
“It’s not only him, it’s the culture around him. It’s his leadership team. It’s his prominent supporters. It’s his online Bernie Bros and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women,” Clinton explained, before adding that Sanders is responsible for this behavior.
“Then this argument about whether or not or when he did or didn’t say that a woman couldn’t be elected, it’s part of a pattern,” she added. “If it were a one-off, you might say, ‘OK, fine.’ But he said I was unqualified. I had a lot more experience than he did, and got a lot more done than he had, but that was his attack on me.”
Despite the Democrat establishment uniting against Bernie Sanders, he continues to rise in the polls. He is arguably the front-runner heading into a tightly-contested Iowa caucus that is a little over a week away for the Democrats.

Obama may have to come out and throw Sanders under the bus as the Democrats grow more desperate to stop their insurgent socialist candidate with a growing and devoted following of radical Marxists.

DESPERATION: Never Trumpers Float Romney/Bloomberg as ‘the Unity Ticket America Deserves’
How pathetic are these guys?
The “Never Trump” brain trust over at The Bulwark has unveiled their antidote to stop the President they hate so much in this year’s election: a “unity ticket” consisting of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as a presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his running mate.
Author Neal Simon made the argument that this potential third-party ticket would appeal to independents in an op/ed published on Monday.
“Senator Romney’s entrance into the presidential race wouldn’t just give the vital center of the electorate a home—it would stand a chance to break a system that is stacked against independents and third party candidates,” Simon argued.
He compared Romney’s potential to that of French President Emmanuel Macron, the reviled ruler who has populist Yellow Vest protesters rioting against his unpopular style of governance every weekend.
“And as Emmanuel Macron showed in France, standing up a new party and winning a presidential election in one motion is not impossible,” Simon wrote.
Simon posited that by putting Bloomberg on his ticket as Vice President, Romney could essentially buy the election, which is what Bloomberg is basically trying to do right now with his run for the Democratic presidential nomination.
“A Romney-Bloomberg ticket would be a first in modern American politics: A bipartisan unity ticket running under the banner of an independent third party,” he wrote.
Simon’s premise is predicated off of an assumption that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will win the Democrat presidential nomination. He believes that populism taking over the Republican and Democrat parties would open the door for a centrist revolution that could be led by Romney and Bloomberg.
“It would give both disgruntled Republicans who feel their party has become lost in Trump’s personality cult and Democrats who feel their party is lurching too far left towards a socialist revolution a voice on the ballot that reflects a popular idea of how the country should be run,” he concluded.
Simon, who was a failed independent candidate in the state of Maryland for the U.S. Senate in 2018, recently published a book titled, “Contract to Unite America: Ten Reforms to Reclaim Our Republic.” He is using the words of George Washington in his manifesto to defeat the new age of populist politics and return to the days of old.
“Capitalizing on personal insight derived from Simon’s political campaign along with extensive research, Contract to Unite America provides specific, practical solutions for an improved government and a better tomorrow,” Simon’s book description reads.
Unfortunately for Simon and the “Bulwark” neocons, the public has had enough of status quo politicians and does not want to return to the George W. Bush era. The dream ticket of Romney/Bloomberg is not likely to come to fruition.
