I was impressed by Bernie Sanders' physical and mental fortitude in completing this outstanding endurance feat!
A hugely positive reaction to what he said. Many people commented that Bernie Sanders is one of the few true 'democrats' remaining.
The US is in terrible trouble, and there is virtually no one to speak up for over 90% of the population.
Thank you Bernie Sanders!

He needs to gear up for the presidential election and challenge Obama. Even if he doesn't win, his voice would make a difference.

He kind of reminded me of you, the way you babble on daily. Maybe you should get off the computer and go do something useful.

Comrade Bernie at his best(or is it worst)wild bloodshot eyes,disheveled and ranting and babling on and on. An embarrasment to the State but he would fit in so well at a Politboro of yesteryear and he would be right at home and comfortable with Chavez in Venezuela today....

-His voice is similar to that Masshoole Barney Frank, just without the que er lispyness Frank has. Maybe if B.S. stuffed some cotton under his upper lip he'd sound just like Frank?

but seriously mikey- B.S. has little Illuminati /New World Order cred, which unfortunately one needs to seriously run for president of the New World Order empire's 'USA', formerly known as the sovereign country with 'freedom', whatever that was. Although the evil powers that be did like the way B.S. helped the govt. coverup and deny Gulf War Syndrome and our vets the treatment they needed but many died instead, and he hasn't spoken out against the bio-warfare practiced on us and the chemtrails etc. and supports their 'Agenda 21' and their 'Global Warming' scam to defraud and regulate us to death, and he acts like he knows what's not Constitutional SOMEtimes like when he joined Ron Paul in voting against the USA PATRIOT ACT (which bigtime phony Leahy actually helped write!) At least he'll have a dog & pony show once in a while and let the people actually ask him some questions and berate him for not being more like Ron Paul, while traitor Leahy NEVER ever has a town hall/public forum event.
But Sanders for president?!- In your Troskyite wet dreams B.S. lover!

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't it true that fillibustering isn't really of much use unless the opposition party is trying hard to get their business done but you rant on and on keeeping them from continuing, while demanding they change or compromise etc.--No one was left in the chamber when B.S. finished ranting and so the chair just officially ended the day. When both main parties (and B.S. belongs to neither) are in gridlock anyway, what good does it do to 'fillibuster' when you're not preventing the rest from doing anything since they mostly went home soon after you started your 8 hour screed?

Barney Frank and Bernie are a billion mile apart.
