Harvard’s ‘populist’: Liz Warren’s pathetic pose
New York Post ^ | 4/29/12 | Howie Carr

Posted on 04/30/2012 6:39:50 AM PDT by raccoonradio

BOSTON — There’s a reason why most would-be politicians start by running for lesser offices, as Massachusetts Democrats are finding to their chagrin this spring, as their anointed US Senate candidate springs one unpleasant surprise after another.

Elizabeth Warren, a 62-year-old Harvard Law School professor, seemed to have all the right stuff to regain the lost Senate seat of the late Ted Kennedy from Republican usurper Scott Brown.

In this bluest of states, she remains competitive, out-fund-raising the incumbent 2 to 1 in the last quarter. In recent statewide polls, she’s been running even or slightly ahead. Yet her campaign is sputtering, as she slips on one banana peel after another. Woman of which people? Elizabeth Warren, here shaking hands at a diner, is taking millions more from Wall Street than her GOP opponent Scott Brown.

It’s turning out that she’s not quite the working-class heroine her worshipers in the limousine-liberal crowd thought she was.

Last week, news broke that Harvard Law had cited Warren as a minority hire — a Native American — when it was under criticism for lack of faculty diversity in 1996. Asked Friday for proof of her Indian ancestry, Warren’s said it’s part of her family “lore.”

So — I’m related to Ethan Allen by ‘family lore.’ I might not try to cash in on it, tho. What a fraud.

Maybe she's related to Ward Churchill.

I’m starting to wonder if the MA Rats would dump “Granny” and draft someone else? “Granny” is appearing to be more and more fatally flawed.

A MA version of NJ/Doug Forrester/”The Torch”. The question is who would play Frank Latenberg in this version?

That’s funny!!!

She’s a frigging joke. If she stays in I can see Brown blowing her out by 7+%, which would constitute a gigantic blowout for a Republican in MA.

“I believe that I was recruited at Harvard because I’m a good teacher, and recruited for my other jobs because I do good work,’’ she said.

Sorry, Lizzy, you're just another AA hire who is incompetent, does lousy work, and was hired to fill a quota. Must be a shocker to learn that at age 62.

Such a great piece. Welcome to the NFL, Grannie Liz!

Recent blows:

1. Overcame a "childhood of poverty" where she had to drive an MG to high school.
2. Self-proclaimed "intellectual founder" of the Occupy Movement.
3. Recently-disclosed sweetheart no interest 20-year loan given to her by Harvard for between $10-50K.
4. Excoriates those who earn a living off their stock portfolios; has mutual fund portfolios worth several million dollars while living in a multi-million dollar Cambridge mansion.
5. Despite hectoring rich people to pay their "fair share" of taxes for the benefit of the children, couldn't find it in herself to pay at the old MA income tax rate, despite her combined household income of just under $1 million/annum.
6. "Never promoted herself" to be a member of a protected class (Native American) . . . even though proof to the contrary suggests otherwise.

Only in MA would this woman be considered a serious candidate for the US Senate.

Interesting thought. But these are the same people who thought she was a good candidate to begin with.

The other day I read an article about possible rat candidates for President in 2016 and it mentioned her (if she wins)! Can you believe that? The love child of John Kerry and the Queen of the Mole People as a POTUS contender! Also O’Malley one of the worst Governors in the country (and Deval which is just a complete joke). Hillary is too old and ugly and Biden is too old, drunk, and stupid so I bet it will be O’Malley or Cuomo Jr. the democrat version of Romney who will run to avenge his daddy who didn’t have the balls to run.

Time for a constitutional amendment, you can’t run for President if your father did or if he almost did or if you are or ever were a professor of anything or if you were born in Hawaii.

“Interesting thought. But these are the same people who thought she was a good candidate to begin with.”

True, but if that seat means control of the US Senate, do the Rats bump her?

O’Malley or Cuomo Jr make the most sense. Unless, the Rats try to look “centrist” and go with an Evan Bayh type.

You hit the proverbial nails on their respective heads with your analysis of the other Rat “contendas” for 2012.
