Video: Joe Scarborough slams Democrats for 'rigged' system - Blogs - 1450 WHTC Holland's News Leader

Good for him and good for us. Finally someone in the MSM telling it like it is...That the Democratic party is corrupt--in so many words. The party disenfranchises voters

‘Can You Guys Believe What You Just Heard?’: MSNBC Panel Stunned Silent by Obama’s Remarks on Clinton Email Scandal | Video | TheBlaze.com

And what about Obama's remarks?

More truth being told. Thank you Scarborough!

Except that Bernie didn't get up four fewer delegates, as superdelegates are not and have never been assigned by the primary or caucus process for the Democrats. Just ask Sanders Senior Advisor Tad Devine to explain this since he helped create the process.

This was just a bogus phrasing designed to inflame low information voters who don't understand how the process actually works. Scarborough has been shilling for Trump since day one, so any dissent he can foment among Democrats is in service of that goal.

Joe didn't seem too upset by it in 2008 when Obama beat Hillary using the super delegate system. All of a sudden, he has his panties in a wad? As a Trump supporter - he's another one that would do anything to run against Bernie.

Lastly, I feel the need to again point at that Bernie's senior advisor had a hand in crafting the super delegate system.

Or in 1984 when Mondale was only 40 votes short and the nomination until the superdelegates gave him the go ahead votes to defeat Gary Hart. In fact Scarborough never complained about the superdelegates in 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, or 2012.

IMO, Gary Hart would have given Reagan a better run than Mondale. Hart still would have lost, but he would not have lost 49 states like Mondale.

In 1984 Joe Scarbourgh was 21 years old .....how do you know what he thought about anything in 1984? ...or 1988,1992....nobody even knew who he was. I doubt ANY Republicans in congress were commenting much about how the Democrats nominated their candidates when Scarbourgh was there between 1994-2001 and why would he?He wasn't a 'talking head' until 2003 and I don't recall the superdelegates being a factor in 2004 or 2012.I don't recall whether he complained in 2008 or not, but plenty of people did,both in the media and on this forum.Of course Hillary was supposed to get all the superdelegates in 2008 too,but many of them jumped ship eventually for Obama.

Is it just me or has anybody else noticed that the only ones worried about the Democrats' delegate allocation process are Trumplets or Right Wing talking heads? No Democrats are complaining about it, not even Bernie supporters.

So, why is he sticking his Right Wing nutjob nose into Democratic Party business now when we Democrats who make up the party haven't complained about how we select delegates to our own convention?

All you Righties go fix your own party and butt out of our business.
