Bernie Sanders says he’s too busy campaigning to answer reporter’s question about the failures of socialism in Venezuela

Shame on Bernie Sanders for saying that he’s too busy with his campaign to answer this reporter’s question about the problems in Venezuela, which Hugo Chavez referred to as “21st century socialism.”

Bernie Hits Bump on Univision: Speechless on Socialism’s Failures

May 26, 2016

LEÓN KRAUZE, UNIVISION: I am sure that you know about this topic: various leftist governments, especially the populists, are in serious trouble in Latin America. The socialist model in Venezuela has the country near collapse. Argentina, also Brazil, how do you explain that failure?

BERNIE SANDERS, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE: You are asking me questions…

LEÓN KRAUZE, UNIVISION: I am sure you’re interested in that.

BERNIE SANDERS, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE: I am very interested, but right now I’m running for President of the United States.

LEÓN KRAUZE, UNIVISION: So you don’t have an opinion about the crisis in Venezuela?

BERNIE SANDERS, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE: Of course I have an opinion, but as I said, I’m focused on my campaign.

    Anyone who hasn’t been swilling the ignorance inducing kool-aid of the Left can see what Bernie is all about…
    He has repackaged Socialism as a workable political ideology by calling himself a “Democratic ‘Socialist'” who is merely interested in “Political ‘Revolution.'”
    The key words here being “Socialist-Revolution.”
    He’s not unlike a salesman who has slapped a spoiler, and cowling, on a moped, and declared it a cutting edge technology racing bike.
    It’s a classic ‘bait, and switch’ scam, and every few years Socialism is once again rolled-out as the new, and improved , political ideology guaranteed to solve all the worlds ills.
    Millions of people have risked life, and limb, simply to escape their version of the ‘new, and improved’ Socialism that has so clearly enriched their lives.
    Of course Bernie Sanders doesn’t want to talk about other examples of Socialism around the world…
    His version is different, it’s new, and improved!
    Why on earth would he want anyone taking a good look under the hood before the sale is a done deal?
    Anyone remember the false promises of Obamacare/ACA?
    Yea, that worked-out real well for everyone, equally…
    If we simply held any of their grandiose ideas up to the standards set by our nations ‘Lemon-Laws’ they’d all be under indictment for fraud!
    There’s not a jury in the U.S. that wouldn’t convict them either.
