Are you ready for Presidential Candidate Elizabeth Warren?
Legal Insurrection ^ | 9/8/2013 | William A. Jacobson

Posted on 09/08/2013 5:33:00 PM PDT by markomalley

You better at least get ready.

There’s a buzz being fed. Warren gave a speech to the AFL-CIO today, and the “draft Warren” talk is starting.

Elizabeth Warren is totally wowing @AFLCIO convention, Wonder if she'll enter the race if Hillary, for some reason, doesn't run. #AFLCIO13

— Steven Greenhouse (@greenhousenyt) September 8, 2013

@greenhousenyt Outstanding speech. I would not be surprised at all if Draft Warren groups sprung up in Iowa, New Hampshire.

— Mike Conrad (@mikeconrad1) September 8, 2013

@greenhousenyt @AFLCIO DEAR GOD YES, PLEASE, YES, OMG, THAT'S WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN #DRAFTSENWARREN (sorry for the caps!)

There is no bigger and better demagogue in American politics. No one is as keyed into the politics of victimhood as she is.

The former law professor also will demagogue and run against the Supreme Court:

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka denounced the United States Supreme Court on Sunday as a right-wing panel that serves the interests of corporate America, previewing a theme that is likely to rise in prominence with the approach of the 2016 election.

On the opening day of the AFL-CIO’s convention, Warren – the highest-profile national Democrat to address the gathering here – warned attendees of a “corporate capture of the federal courts.” …

Warren’s reception in Los Angeles also underscored her core appeal to the progressive base of the Democratic Party. Her entrance into the convention hall was greeted was effusive applause; Trumka hailed her as “an honest-to-God champion, the real deal” and a senator who stands up to “billion-dollar corporations and Wall Street on behalf of working people.”

And indeed, the former Harvard Law professor’s speech was a populist paean to the role of labor in fighting “powerful interests [that] have tried to capture Washington and rig the system in their favor.”

I’m beginning to think Warren will run even if Hillary also runs.

We’ll be there. Reminding people of what she has worked so hard to have people forget.

@greenhousenyt @instapundit @AFLCIO Of course @SenWarren will .enter race if Hillary doesn't –> your study guide http://t.co/3j2q1JeDXk

I wouldn’t be surprised. The lefties I know are all ga ga over her. Personally, I think she’s bat-spit crazy.

In saner times, I’d say she’d never have a chance to get elected with her radical politics. But, given that very far left John Kerry came within a whisper of winning in 2004, and very, very far left Obama has been elected twice, she could well be a contender in 2016.

Heck, I think even Mike Dukakis could get elected President these days.

I still cannot believe that her outright lie about being Native American AND using it to gain minority preference in her job has been ignored. What she did is criminal, but the media also ignored Obama using Indonesian citizenship to get into college as a foreign student making him ineligible to be POTUS.

She is without a doubt the most dangerous politician in American history. Not only do radical leftist socialists love her message, many nominally liberal people think she is a genius and makes sense because she lies with confidence, and low-information voters believe her for the same reason.

Why no one in the MSM will dare question or challenge Obama for fear of being called a racist, no one in the MSM is smart enough to realize when Warren is lying and call her on it.

I saw her interviewed on CNBC about her efforts to bring back Glass-Stegall (which in and of itself is agitprop--the separation of banking and investing was a very small part of Glass-Stegall), and the CNBC interviewer was not smart enough to challenge her claims about the causes of the 1980s Savings and Loan crisis (she claimed it was caused by Reagan's deregulation efforts).

The primary cause of the S&L crisis was an inverted yield curve. The deregulation efforts were an attempt to allow S&Ls to offer broader financial services because they basic model (passbook savings financing mortgage loans) could not work in a financial environment with an extended period of an inverted yield curve.

I think the only people on the Republican side who could debate Warren on economic issues are Paul Ryan (who, because of 2012, is now damaged goods), and Rand Paul.

First, potential Republican candidates need to understand the rising populist trend and co-opt it. This happened before, where Ronald Reagan built a populist coalition which co-opted the post-Watergate populist trend which propelled Jimmy Carter into the White House.

Second, potential Republican candidates need be able to, like Ronald Reagan, speak intelligently and confidently on economic issues without sounding like a used care salesman or a wonk. They need to go back and watch all of the YouTube videos with Milton Friedman.

Not so sure about that. Practically every Democrat in the Washington universe is keyed into the politics of victimhood, so she has plenty of rivals for that distinction.

Rather than remain fascinated by the prospect of the first lesbian faux-Cherokee-Princess candidate, every good Republican must now consider the search for Our Worthy Candidate.

I'm thinking Libby Dole? The Cheney Girl? Who? It's a serious job the GOP faces: coming up with a candidate who can lose to this ridiculously Left-Wing and stupid bimbo from Massholeland while spending a billion-dollar campaign fund. Hey about that Carly execu-slut from CA who lost so handily in her Senate or was it Governor race?

Wait a minute! Susie Collins?

After Obama it can’t get worse. It may not get better, but it can’t get worse. And the Republicans seem determined to hold up their end of the deal with John McCains and Mitt Romneys. To my everlasting shame I voted for both of them.
