Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Jeb Bush are very upset because Sen. Bernie Sanders refused to do their dirty work for them by attacking Hillary Clinton for her use of private email.

When asked about Sanders speaking out against the Republican and media obsession with Clinton’s emails, Trump said, “I think Bernie, actually, for the sake of a good soundbite, let her off the hook. You have an FBI investigation on the emails, and he just let her off. And I think that when you’re losing – because he is losing badly if you look nationally – when you’re losing that badly, you have to go a lot stronger.”

Meanwhile, On Fox and Friends, Jeb Bush had his own complaints about Sanders not acting like a classless Republican.

Bush said, “I thought it was interesting that they didn’t go after her, particularly on the email issue, because look, there’s an FBI investigation, she hasn’t been forthcoming. It’s clear the Russians and Chinese were trying to hack into her server. Information crossing that server was of national security interest, for sure. I would have taken her to task for that, and if she wins the nomination and if I win the nomination, trust me, this is not going to end.”

Bush and Trump are angry because they expected Sen. Sanders to do their dirty work for them.

Instead, Sanders delivered the highlight of the debate when he said:

Let me say something that may not be great politics, but I think the Secretary is right, and that is the American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails, and let me say something else about the media as well. I go around the country and talk to a lot of people middle class in this country is collapsing, we have 27 million people living in poverty, we have trade policies that have cost us millions of decent jobs. The American people want to know if we are going to have a democracy or an oligarchy as a result of Citizens United. Enough of the emails, let’s talk about the real issues facing America.

The one lesson that Bush, Trump, and the other Republican presidential candidates learned last night is that the rest of the Democratic field is not going to give them ammo to use against Hillary Clinton. The comments from both Trump and Bush also suggest that if Hillary Clinton is the nominee, Republicans are planning to run a dirt filled issueless smear campaign against her.

Republicans don’t understand what Sanders did because they can’t comprehend doing the right thing. The Republican candidates spend all of their time trying to tear each other down while the Democratic field is building a cohesive message for their nominee to take into the fall of 2016.

This difference between the two parties is why Democrats have won 5 of the last 6 presidential election popular votes while Republicans struggle to stop fighting with each other long enough to select a nominee.

  1. Most of the country knows the email business is a lot of crap. Since the Republicans can’t run on the issues it’s all they have.

  2. Bush, Trump & the greedy GOP will never know what it means to do the right thing because they compromised any integrity they may have once had years ago just to make quick buck.

    I have always believed that the GOP, party of small government is the reason we have such a large government since the GOP can never be trusted to do the right things down to not poisoning our air, food & water just to make a buck. These people make me sick as they hide behind their bibles.

    Jeb! Bush really ought to get out more. If he did, he’d find that Bernie Sanders speaks the truth about the concerns of regular Americans NOT being Hillary Clinton’s emails.

    The GOP & Democrats debates certainly show the stark differences between the two parties. The GOP continues to live, breathe & pander to those who live in an alternate reality with each trying to prove they’re the most conservative. The Dems conduct themselves professionally & tackle real problems that face real Americans.

  4. Waaaugh! they’re talking about how we Righties Phuck things up!! Waaugh! Sob Sob! Big Wussie Cry Baby Nazi’s

  5. News Flash — Republicans are confused while observing civil debate on policies and solutions.

    They were quoted as thinking, not a single ad hominem was used during their exchanges. It was embarrassing to watch; there was no star!

    From my point of view, beyond the sarcasm above, it gave a seal of approval for liberal ideas from balanced and learned individuals. Good form from all participants.

  6. Yep, he had his own private server, too. He discussed movements of the National Guard and Reserves after 9/11 on it, which isn’t classified information, but it’s still sensitive. But nobody in the media seems to care.

  7. Trump and Jeb! are on the defensive because nobody slung any mud last night, nobody claimed that they were going to tear up international agreements or destroy this, that, and the other thing, and the candidates discussed real issues. You know, actually debating each other. T & J! know that it makes the entire GOP look bad – like a bunch of kids having tantrums on a national stage, each trying to outdo the rest.

  8. So what else is new? Gop two year olds tantrumming. It happens every time they’re exposed They are children that offer nothing but schoolyard name calling and lies. Hillary’s got this. She knows her stuff.

  9. Just my overall impression of the Democrat’s debate vs. the Republican’s debate:

    DEMOCRATS ARE CLASSIER!

    The Democratic candidates were civilized, well prepared, informed, had ideas and policies they champion, and had a good sense of humor. And they looked good together.

    There was no deep animosity towards their fellow candidates, they disagreed with each other in a civil manner, no silly put downs (looking for points and hoots and holler from THEIR pitch fork Republican crowd).

    Our candidates showed Respect and statesmanship (a cut above the men and lady in the Republican’s camp).

    While on the other side we have a bunch of hooligans who pretend that they want to be President. (My opinion)

  10. Forget about eyeing Sparrows, keep your eyes on the voting machines. The roaches are crawling. Jeb is just one of the crawlies. Donald= Herman 999. The other roach to keep eyeballing. Donald represents the roach party. Dem debate only made the infestation worse among Republicans.

  11. The ADULT democratic candidates have RESPECT for each other, whereas the PRE-K republican candidates love to tear each other apart and have NO RESPECT for each other let alone the American people.

    I’m for Bernie in the primary and will vote for the democratic nominee in November ’16.

    Bernie, Hillary and Martin all impressed me, Chaffey and Webb were both former republicans and it showed.
    I thank Webb for his military service, but we’re not the war party.

  12. Betsy L,
    I respect your comment greatly but I think you did not go far enough. Trump and Bush and Rubio and all the Republicans are angry because the Democratic candidates are for something rather than against everything. The list of things the Republicans are against is longer than my grandson’s letter to Santa.

  13. When you hear campaign remarks about inequality and about the richest 1% and the richest .01% remember you heard it first at Occupy Wall St.

  14. “Republicans don’t understand what Sanders did because they can’t comprehend doing the right thing.”

    Precisely!

  15. China, Russia, South Korea tried to hack Clinton’s server? The operative word here is “tried”. Apparently they did not succeed, which indicates to me that her security was better than the Pentagon, which HAS been hacked, several times.

    This email “scandal” is another made up attempt to smear Clinton. We already know that. We have an investigator, Republican appointed, who has blown the whistle on the committee doing the investigating.

    Yet here we have bloviating, self-aggrandizing, Trump and me-too Jeb! still harping on this. Apparently they are so in love with the sound of their own voices, they do not realize that anybody with half a brain doesn’t give a damn about the emails, that there are a heck of a lot more important things to worry about.

    How these two got as far as they did, being as stupid as they are, is beyond my comprehension.

  16. Well one party has to do something before the other party can be against it. The democratic party has accomplished a lot (despite the obstruction) and hence the Repubs find a bunch of things to go against (Like Obamacare, Consumer protections). The Republican party has done nothing. So the democrats have nothing to talk against them.

  17. …to me, it’s real simple…
    …from top to bottom, the Democrats talk about doin’ things for “WE the People”…the Republican’t Potty can only blather thier Idiotology, which is what they can do for the 1 %…
    …any questions???

  18. It seems the republicans have now settled on the “FBI investigation” since the Benghazi committee has been essentially neutered. That’s all they’ve got. Oh, they’ll probably revive the Clinton Foundation stuff too. They have to save something for next year….

  19. Great day for dems and libs. The karma thing is truly a beautiful sight to behold. The GOP dominoes have begun to fall. The election is just about one year away to the day. Start thinking about voting.

  20. GWB’s administration illegally ran millions of emails through the Republican National Committee’s server. When caught, they destroyed them. Discuss.

    Jeb?

    Jeb?

  21. That Jebber used a private server(s) and when he released the cherry picked emails, they only amounted to about 10% — Got mentioned in passing by media. Glossed over and unchallenged. Yet that same media has been OCDing on Clinton’s emails as has the right & left pundit talking heads & ‘experts’. I do blame both right and left. They’ve been like a dog with a bone.

    And to hear the ad nauseam ranting by Rethugs that media are ‘left’. What we’ve believed to be ‘left’ felt as if we were watching Rethug/Bagger media, pundit talking heads. Clearly they’ve shown themselves lazy in that it’s easier to chew that bone than actually do their job and report and talk truth.

  22. People need to understand that Hillary is NOT being investigated by the FBI. They are investigating whether or not there was classified information on her server. If there is classified information there, a) It was not marked as classified at the time, nor is there evidence that senders knew it to be classified, and b) as a matter of law, there would be no difference if it was found on Hillary’s server or on the DOS unclassified server.

    I would also point out the obvious…. If you went to the unclassified servers at the Pentagon, NSA, CIA, AEC, and DIA, I absolutely guarantee that you would find information that could post-facto be declared classified. It would make your head spin at the number of rubbish documents that are classified. The rule is, “when in doubt, classify it… if not known for sure how classified it should be, make it top secret.” (spoken from someone who worked at and with the National Security Agency for over 6 years).

  23. There were failed attempts to hack into Hillary’s server. They all failed. Do you think that the unclassified server at DOS is free from attack? It’s not. And as we know, some government servers HAVE been successfully hacked… but not Hillary’s private server.

    When someone can show me where the story is here….. well…. I don’t have to worry about that as there simply isn’t a story….

  24. Anybody and everyone who has a web server is constantly under attack by China and the east block countries. China pounds my server every second for eight hours straight at least twice a week. Russian tries anything and everything, phishing emails, Trojan emails, hacking attempts, etc. I forward their crap to the secret service and ban their ip addresses. I was spending my entire day banning ip addresses instead of working on my site. People are fed up and closing down their websites.

  25. The Democratic Debate continues to show the superior intellect of Demos over the American Taliban (Repubs) , just need to vote !
