Did Bernie On Fox Just Show Progressive Politics Are Widely Beloved?

Thom plus logo Bernie Sanders went on Fox News and showed us how someone who genuinely believes in his own policies can overcome questions designed specifically to make him look foolish. Every time the fox hosts tried gotcha questions or tried to provoke Bernie to get him upset, he handled it with elegance and with the support of the crowd.

It's amazing, but a Fox News crowd was actively supporting Bernie and his policies - a huge spectrum of progressive policies - right in front of Fox News and the world. It's easy to imagine several of the more genuine Democratic candidates doing well in the same venue.

But most importantly, Bernie's experience doing a Fox town hall tells us all that progressive policies are widely beloved by the American people, regardless of the messenger.

I absolutely agree that he carried himself very well throughout the interview. Regardless of whether or not I agree with all of his policies, he still deserves some respect for sure. Roland - carpet cleaning | painters st. john's nl

Nice article! I guess, the senator made policies he believes that is good for the people. We, from alexandria plumbing services people, admired those policies and respected him.

From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
