Obama to Sleep Easy Tonight: Nutcake Bernie Sanders Won't Be Running Against Him

How upset are the far left nutcases in this country? Apparently some as so far gone they're pleading with loony Socialist Bernie Sanders to run against Barack Obama. Sadly, Bernie doesn't have it in him. Guess he figures there only room for one Socialist in the Democrat primaries.
One of the Senate's liberal leaders said that, despite receiving pleas to challenge President Obama in 2012, he won't take the bait.

When asked last week about launching a potential campaign against the president, self-described democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said he "ain't gonna do it."

"You will be the first to know: ain't gonna do it," he said during an interview on Vermont's WCAX-TV.

Speculation mounted that Sanders could run against Obama — it's unclear on what party label — after he spent over eight hours this month railing against the president's tax-cut deal on the Senate floor in a speech that came to be known as the "filibernie."

A website by the name of, billing itself as "An independent and Quixotic plea for sanity," even turned up.

"Let’s face it, this will never happen," the site says. "But hey, why not at least put it out there."
Believe it or not someone with way too much free time actually polled an Obama-Sanders matchup.
If Sanders had decided to challenge Obama, he would have faced a steep climb. A recent Magellan Strategies poll found Obama with a 71-point lead over Sanders among registered voters in New Hampshire, a key early primary state.
