The Speech That Could Make Elizabeth Warren the Next President of the United States
The Huffington Post's The Blog ^ | December 13, 2014 | Miles Mogulescu, Entertainment attorney, writer and political activist

Early Friday evening Sen. Elizabeth Warren took to the Senate floor and gave a plain-spoken, barn-burning speech that could make history and put her into serious contention to be the next President of the United States.

There are only a handful of political speeches that have such historic impact. Barack Obama's keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention comes readily to mind. It's what catapulted an obscure Illinois state Senator into the national limelight and put him on the path to becoming President.

Warren's Senate speech was different, but just as electrifying.

Obama's rhetoric was lofty, high-minded, and general, with a feel-good unifying message that there's no blue America or red America but only the United States of America.

Warren's rhetoric is more down to earth, substantive, and frankly, angrier, unafraid of calling out by name the institutions--the big banks and Citigroup in particular--which tanked the economy, cost millions of Americans their jobs and homes, were bailed out with half a trillion dollars of taxpayer money, and then used their fortunes to buy Congress and make it more likely they'll be bailed out again. Moreover, she was unafraid to take on the President of her own party, and the numerous members of his administration drawn from Citigroup and other big banks through the endless revolving door between Washington and Wall Street.

Here's the heart of Warren's speech:

Democrats don't like Wall Street bailouts. Republicans don't like Wall Street bailouts. The American people are disgusted by Wall Street bailouts

And yet here we are, five years after Dodd-Frank with Congress on the verge of ramming through a provision that would do nothing for the middle class, do nothing for community banks, do nothing but raise the risk that taxpayers will have to bail out the biggest banks once again...

She’s setting herself up beautifully for 2016.

By the time the journ-0-lists are done, Warren will be a very formidable candidate.

The Clinton Crime Family has to be feeling deja vu all over again, LOL.

Barf.

One entity, and one entity only, is responsible for destroying the American economy ... and that is the United States Government. Every penny of debt, of confiscatory taxation, of ‘gibsmedat’ payments, of foreign aid that Elizabeth Warren herself has voted for has destroyed the American economy.

Hypocritical bitch should look in the mirror if she wants to see the parties responsible for destroying America.

My first thought as well.

There was this unknown guy named Hussein from Kenya running against goddess Hillary! and handsome former VP candidate John-Boy Edwards.

We saw where that went....

"There are only a handful of political speeches that have such historic impact. Barack Obama's keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention comes readily to mind."

I think only people who are true believers already will be swayed by this nonsense.

Haven’t we learned our lesson that good speech-makers aren’t necessarily good Presidents, in fact the opposite?

Now, doesn’t this inane statement just confirm what Gruber has been telling us about the Left’s reliance on the “stupidity of the American people”?

The majority of voters tend to be receptive to the message of journ-0-lists.

If they say Baraq (or in this case Fauxcahontas) is a wizard orator, it must be so.

The Clintons are not liberal enough for many Democrat activists nowadays.

Warren could be a serious threat to Hillary because she neutralizes the first woman president meme which Hillary’s people want to push for 2016.

In spite of polls showing Hillary far ahead of other Democrats, it sure seems that there is not a lot of enthusiasm for Hillary and the return of the Clintons. Hillary is ripe to be taken down.
