They fail to realize that Bernie getting his ass kicked by a HORRIBLE Biden candidate actually has something to do with Bernie. That Bernie owns part of the reason he got his ass whipped.
Bernie turned his healthcare pitch, student loan pitch, etc into bad ideas ....merely as a means to be far left of everyone. And everyone ignores how bad he made them in order to stay left of people encroaching on his stuff.
I was supposed to be (set for life, that is). I had friends who graduated and were walking into $75-90k a year jobs. An MBA was supposed to matter and give me a significant leg up on everything. The school I went to was expensive, for sure, but the job market and potential salaries (at the time) were worth it.
When I was in school the economy was booming and people were hiring big time. I remember having discussions about it not being a matter of if we would be millionaires but just how long it would take. Sounds incredibly silly now, but considering what people were working for at the time and the jobs that were available, it was a pretty realistic conversation to have.
Then 9-11 and the dot.com bust happened and reality hit. I knew it wasn't sustainable, but I didn't realize how badly and for how long things would tank.
