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 whos 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. Thats what I think is at stake in this election.
Thats 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.
wow. yet another deity from the dems. what will they think of next?
Wow! The teepee filled all the way to the smoke vent with that one.
No we don’t!
Isn’t she sweet for visiting folks in mental hospitals!
She should be locked up in the looney bin.
Those would be the people she knows from the Rez where she and her family lived in stark poverty.
Please give this nutcase a prime speaking spot at the DNC convention.
The delusion is strong with this one.
Has Princess “I Lie til the cows come home “ ever been to a real corporation ? Like Obama has been to Israel “over and over” according to Nancy Pelosi???
Everything that spews out of this haggish twits mouth is a lie.
She is so delusional there in not enough psych meds in the world for her.
People think I’m as sexy as Antonio Banderas.
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?
chuckle...what are her polling numbers? Its hard to imagine they’re much above 3 or 4%. Then again it is MA we’re talking about. LOL, savior of capitalism huh? Guess she’s counting on the magnitude of the lie to make it sound credible. I looked twice to make sure this wasn’t a spoof...
Oh please, no one thinks that Liz. Good grief.
Nuttier than Squirrel Poo! She must be in heap big trouble........
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.
That’s the funniest line I’ve heard in ages.
