Will: Hillary Clinton has lead, but Dems eye new kid Liz Warren
The Boston Herald ^ | November 17, 2013 | George F. Will

Posted on 11/17/2013 12:47:04 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

The New Republic magazine was, appropriately, the stimulant that last week gave the Democratic base a frisson of anticipation about a possible Elizabeth Warren presidential candidacy in 2016. Now in her 11th month as a Massachusetts senator, she is suited to carry the progressive torch that was fueled 99 years ago this month by The New Republic’s founding.

Its first editor was Herbert Croly, whose 1909 book “The Promise of American Life” — Theodore Roosevelt read it, rapturously, during his post-presidential travels — is progressivism’s primer: “The average American individual is morally and intellectually inadequate to a serious and consistent conception of his responsibilities as a democrat,” so national life should be a “school.” “The exigencies of such schooling frequently demand severe coercive measures, but what schooling does not?” And “a people are saved many costly perversions” if “the official schoolmasters are wise, and the pupils neither truant nor insubordinate.”

Today the magazine, whose birth was partly financed by a progressive heiress, Dorothy Payne Whitney, is owned by Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes. Warren, a scourge of (other) economic royalists, and especially of large financial institutions, is a William Jennings Bryan for our time: She has risen from among Harvard’s downtrodden to proclaim: “You shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of derivatives.”(continued)

Do Democrats, ankle-deep in the rubble of Obamacare’s paternalism, really want to nominate the author of Hillarycare?

They didn't want here in '08, and turned to a magic Negro instead.

So why not a fake Indian in '16?

When Lieawatha was asked about Obamacare, she said “Black man speak with forked tongue.”

I see a cat fight in the ‘RATS’ future. Hillary is a loser. “People of color” are obstacles to her White House dream. LOL! First an “African American” whose ancestors never picked one ball of cotton and now a “Native American” whose sacred buffalo diet consists only of the wings.

No need to worry, the Republican Party will ensure the election of a Democrat in 2016 as they run New Jersey Trans-fats as their nominee and lose for the 3rd time in 16 years.

LIZ WARREN???

These people are so hilarious. If you asked a Dem voter what they liked about Elizabeth Warren, the answer would be something along the lines of, “Um. I liked what she said that time. And she was on TV a lot, so I guess she’s popular. And she’s a Native woman and we’ve never had one of them for president. So, cool.”

Dems are not vetted. There is nothing in Warren's past that will sink her. Note that there ARE things in her past that SHOULD sink her -- but they will not be discussed. Dems are not vetted.

But, I will remind everyone that the RNC spent $150,000 on clothing for Sarah Palin when she became that VP nominee, and that pretty much made her unelectable. Just because.

More BS and more political theater to make it appear the coming coronation of the hildahag into the WH will serve to legitimize the appearance of her hard fought victory from the ground up.

When challenging a Republican, true. But when challenging a vicious, malevolent snake - or a Clinton - (but I repeat myself), well then things might have a way of getting noticed.

If you see Axlegrease, Gibbs, and Plouffy lined up in Squaw Warren’s tribe, that will signal she’s running as Baraq’s third term.

“Little known fact: Lizzy Warren’s indian name, Fauxcahontas Fakajawea, translates into “Practiced Law Without License”.”

That’s better than Obama who practiced law without passing the bar exam.

I honestly think that is the issue with Obama’s sealed transcripts. He strikes me as a somewhat intelligent but lazy schmoozer. I bet he received his degree with an incomplete and took the bar exam without having finished the actual degree. He then didn’t go back and complete the degree which means he wasn’t qualified to take the exam because he didn’t meet the qualifications.

I don’t think Obama actually graduated

Hillary can’t win because she has the stink of Hillarycare. This is the same reason Romney lost — Romneycare. People want someone to end Obamacare. But Warren has even less chance of winning.

Regarding Warrens claim she is part American Indian, was there ever a DNA test? My belief is they can determine what percentage her ancestry is of north or south American Indian.

Or is this the equivalent of obama’s birth certificate.

If the US were ready for a team of two similar candidates, Mr. Obama would’ve picked Jesse Jackson, Jr., Deval Patrick, Corey Booker or Colin Powell as his running mate.

Americans who are black are less than 10% of our population. Females are over 50% of our population. Warren runs as a socialist. Hillary runs as a seasoned, middle-of-the-road Democrat.

Easy call to make if you observe active communists. They want Warren for president. As for the communists, best to know where they are.

I’m afraid to hope for Elizabeth, because the country could be stupid enough to vote for her; and if we are going to get stuck with another democrat, I’d prefer Hillary to another incompetent like Obama.

Here’s Elizabeth Warren’s credentials to be President of the United States -
- She’s a loony liberal (”you did not build that…”)
- She’s a minority (American Indian - sort of)
- She has no experience running a business
- She has no experience with foreign affairs
- She’s a Junior Senator
- She’s from Academia (what more do you need to govern?!?)

She is the perfect Democrat candidate for President
