05 Oct

Been saying this since the day Obama took office the first time. His biggest mistake was not understanding that the Republicans in Congress were every bit as much an enemy as Putin or the Ayatollah – and more damaging to America.

Bernie Sanders on Obama’s Biggest Mistake: Thinking GOP Leadership Was Reasonable

Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont whose policies are left of mainstream liberals, told David Axelrod that Obama made a “mistake” by expecting he could easily charm the other party into negotiating with him. “He thought he could walk into Capitol Hill and the Oval Office and sit down with John Boehner and Mitch McConnell and the Republicans and say, ‘I can’t get it all. You can’t get it all. Let’s work out something that’s reasonable,’ because he’s a reasonable guy. He’s a pretty rational guy,” Sanders said on the debut episode of “The Axe Files with David Axelrod” podcast.

“These guys never had any intention of doing [serious] negotiating and compromising,” Sanders added, according to a Politico report. “I think it took the president too long to fully appreciate that.”
