At Harvard, Elizabeth Warren known as tough, demanding, dynamic prof; heritage claims 'ludicrous'
The Republican ^

Posted on 05/13/2012 3:27:28 PM PDT by matt04

Teaching her class at Harvard Law School one day, professor Elizabeth Warren called on a student who was unprepared.

The student said, “I’ll pass.” Warren’s response was, “Not likely.”

That story, passed from one class to the next about Warren, exemplifies the way colleagues and former students view the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts. Warren is known as a tough and demanding professor. She is also dynamic, well-prepared and treats each student as an individual, past students and colleagues say.

“She expects a lot,” said Adam Levitin, a professor at Georgetown Law School who was a student of Warren’s at Harvard between 2002 and 2005. But, he said, Warren also gives a lot.

“She prepares assiduously and takes the teaching very seriously as part of her job. No one doesn’t think they’ve gotten their money’s worth out of the class,” Levitin said.

Warren came to Harvard in 1992 as a visiting professor and was hired as the Leo Gottlieb professor of law in 1995. Warren earned a total of $430,000 from Harvard between January 2010 and December 2011, according to financial disclosure forms. She is currently on leave.

Warren’s time at Harvard has played a major role in her campaign. According to Federal Election Commission data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics, Harvard employees contributed more than $100,000 to Warren’s campaign. Harvard employees gave less than $15,000 to her opponent, Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, according to an analysis by The Republican and MassLive.com.

Sounds like the perfect job for her... no use in running for office where people dare question your credentials, Liz.

She pulls in over $400 grand/year in a protected job and has the chutzpah to wail on small business owners for not ponying up their fair share.

...this is what passes for hard hitting at Harvard.

Dean Vernon Wormer: 0.2 ... Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

...now that’s hard hitting.

Adam Levitin is a major Communist D*bag. He will say ANYTHING to kill capitalism. And knows nothing other than what the Center for American Progress and Media Matter tells him.

http://www.biography.com/people/elizabeth-warren-20670753?page=2
Hungry and willing to fudge the facts on school, job applications. Itinerant, gypsy lawyer. Consumer goo goo. TARP participant. Harvahd. Ambitious grind, Hillary-like repulsiveness, possibly even more out of her depth than Obama and with a re-tread husband ....

“You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea—God bless!” she said. “Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”

Goes to the movies & recites titles as societal mission statements: also misinterprets and actually expresses publicly so that they can be republished (as here) a skewed basic misunderstanding of how our American republic works.

Doesn’t speak with a Native American accent. Plain-jane, four-eyed bookworm, but not grotesque looking. Yeah, she’s a `rat.

I recalled a `deer-caught-in-headlights’ expression and had to look at her mugshot again.
Correction:
“Plain-jane, four-eyed bookworm. Yeah, she’s a `rat.”

Elizabeth Warren known as tough

Tough? Just what the hell constitutes tough in a college professor? Telling a student he can't pass on a question is tough? Smoke Jumpers, Green Berets, the NYC fire fighters that ran into the World Trade Center knowing the would never come out. Those guys are tough. The fake Indian Princess? Not tough.

WHICH "social contract," Lizzie? The one you and your friends back with 40 whacks of an axe - in the name of peace? Thought so.

Actually, her full response was “Not likely, paleface.”

If the “mystery” Student was a Minority, I'm sure Ms. Warren would have responded differently.

Then again, maybe the “Student” was just a compilation of many Students. You never know if anything a Liberal says is the truth.
