Elizabeth Warren: People Think I'm Capitalism's Savior

Elizabeth Warren: People Think I'm Capitalism's Savior Michael Warren July 30, 2012 1:32 PM

Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren says Wall Street types tell her she could be the "savior of capitalism" if she wins her race for U.S. Senate. Here's what Warren recently told a reporter, National Journal reports:

“Every now and again, I meet with someone who’s been very successful on Wall Street, who says, ‘I want to support your campaign because I believe you will save capitalism. I believe in capitalism, and I understand there have to be rules. And they have to be consistently enforced.’ That’s what I think is at stake in this election.”

That’s a hefty assignment, the salvation of capitalism, but Democratic strategists, while cringing at the grandiosity of the statement, say she articulates her vision for the assignment as well as any candidate.

Warren, who is running against Republican incumbent Scott Brown, has said she "created much of the intellectual foundation" for the anti-capitalist Occupy Wall Street movement. And a video of Warren telling supporters that "nobody in this country...got rich on their own" went viral with liberals last year and may have inspired President Obama's comments earlier this month that business owners "didn't build" their businesses.

Those would be the people she knows from the Rez where she and her family lived in stark poverty.

If she is the key note speaker for the democRAT national convention, the election is Romney's to loose.

She is so delusional there in not enough psych meds in the world for her.

Has it ever happened that you think you can rationally debate or understand someone, only to realize they are mentally ill and operating on a different planet entirely?

I call BS.

She is a serial liar. This is just one more lie on the pile.

Name these “Wall Street people” with the insane view that she is even a friend of capitalism.
