Elizabeth Warren to ‘Romney-Brown Republicans’: ‘We don’t run this country for corporations’
The Washington Post ^ | June 8, 2012

Posted on 06/09/2012 7:41:09 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — With a voice hoarse not from last week’s Massachusetts Democratic convention, but from “the parties,” she said, Elizabeth Warren took the stage at the annual Netroots Nation conference here Friday afternoon with a clear goal: link her GOP opponent, Sen. Scott Brown, to the presumptive GOP nominee, Mitt Romney.

The Harvard professor and Democratic Senate nominee made no mention in her 10-minute remarks of the months-long flap over her Native American heritage, an imbroglio that the Brown campaign as seized upon and that polls suggest could take a toll on Warren in November.

Rather, Warren’s only allusion to the episode came as she told the cavernous hall of nearly 3,000 progressive activists that she remains determined to stay in the race for the same reasons she jumped into it.

“Let me make clear, I am not backing down,” Warren said to loud applause.

As she seeks to unseat Brown in what stands to be among this year’s most competitive (and expensive) Senate battles, Warren on Friday repeatedly took aim at “the Romney-Brown Republicans” on matters ranging from her signature issue of financial regulatory reform to campaign finance and the battle over health insurers and contraception.

“The Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, said, ‘Corporations are people.’ No, Mitt, corporations are not people,” she said to cheers. “People have hearts. They have kids. They get jobs. They get sick, they laugh, they cry, they dance, they live and they die. Learn the difference.”

After pausing again for a long round of applause, Warren added: “And Mitt, learn this. We don’t run this country for corporations, we run it for people.”

Unions are corporations, and I just heard some moonbat on TV say that unions are people.

Sorry Fauxchohantas. Without corporations, people don’t have jobs. Without jobs, people don’t pay taxes. Without taxes, YOU don’t have a job. You can’t Google it *itch!

we run it[the country] for people

Of course the idiotic occupy crowd will cheer anything anti-corporation but this probably goes right over their heads. Firstly, Warren doesn't run anything other than fraudulent job applications. Secondly, even if she were a senator, they don't "run the country". In fact, the less they do the better the country runs.

No, they run it for the Marxists, the atheists, the perverts and the traitors. People like my ancestors, like the people on this forum, built this Nation. We built it on concepts of personal liberty, individual responsibility, the nuclear family and limited government. It has thrived for over two centuries by adhering to those concepts. It is being systematically undone by the Democrat Socialist Party and its godless agenda.



Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Warren added: “And Mitt, learn this. We don’t run this country for corporations, we run it for people.”

Another reason why Democrats know nothing about private enterprise and think only the public sector is hurting.

Give it up Warren. Your professorship at Hahvarhd notwithstanding, you are one stupid, self-serving lib.

Is Fauxcahontas Crockagawea still moving her damaged goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for?

At least she doesn’t have to worry that maurauding bands would come and seize everything from her while she is at her Affirmative Action job in the Liberal Dogma Factory called Harvard.

Fauxcahontas knows that she is safe there in her ivy covered red brick wigwam because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for.

Fauxcahontas Crockagawea remembers that part of the underlying social contract is that she should take a large hunk of her ill gotten wampum and pay it forward for the next lying liberal commie who comes along to scam the system as she did to get a free ride.

These people are running your country.

And every election cycle keep winning.

And you wonder why they talk down to us?

If I was a liberal Democrat I’d be laughing and flipping everyone off too - no one is stopping them.

Looking at the thing objectively (IMO), there are multiple honorable ways a person can deal with affirmative action/racial quotas. One can embrace it if they feel it is right, one can simply accept it if they don’t feel that strongly, or one can fight it.

Really, the only dishonorable way to deal with the issue is to dishonestly use it to cheat to get ahead while expecting honest people to “toe the line”. It appears that this is what E.W. did.

The Song Of Princess No-Know-Much and Little Obama-watha

By the shores of River Charles
By the shining Oily Waters,
Stood the wigwam of No-Know-Much,
Moon Bat Daughter of the Marxists

Dark behind it rose the forest
Rose the forest of red brick wigwams
Rose the Starbucks and Panera Bread
By the square were Harvard stood

Bright before it beat the water
Beat the slimy dirty water
Beat the shining Oily-Water
On the shores of River Charles

There the wrinkled old No-Know-Much
Nursed the little Obama-watha
Rocked him in his golden cradle
Bedded soft in fresh arugula

Safely bound with puppet strings
Stilled his fretful wail by saying
“Hush! the Right Wing Bears will hear thee!”
Lulled him into slumber, singing

“Oh yes you won! My little monkey!
Who is this that lights my wigwam?
With his Big Ears comes to my wigwam?
Oh-yea, Oh-yea you little monkey!”

While Warren was at Netroots Nation, Scott Brown and Gov. Patrick were attending a policeman’s funeral.

Shows where Warren’s priorities are.

“I think this completely sums up the liberal viewpoint.”

You are spot on. Liberalism attracts narcissistic politicians for precisely the reason that she inadvertently exposed with her comment. Liberalism gives them and opportunity to be ‘special’ and ‘take care’ of others from their ‘superior’ positions. There is nothing altruistic or humanitarian about it.
