Skip to comments.(Fauxcahontas) WARREN CONVENTION SPEECH FALLS FLAT
Posted on 09/06/2012 3:35:12 AM PDT by Clint N. Suhks
For the self described "intellectual godmother" of Occupy Wall Street, Elizabeth Warren's fifteen minute speech to the DNC sounded more like a well rehearsed lecture filled with standard left-wing platitudes delivered by a politically correct graduate student than the William Jennings Bryan stemwinder her supporters had hoped for.
It was a pedestrian effort, filled with attacks on "millionaires and billionaires" - probably written by the Obama campaign. Ms. Warren showed none of the sparkle that made her a favorite of the far left.
I thought her speech was flat, filled with boiler plate lefty language.
By my count, it included two hammers, five rigged systems, six level playing fields, and a few crowd pleasing stories of how superhero Barack Obama's federal government had punished evil corporations.
In Warren's world, middle class citizens have been "tricked" by credit card companies, "fooled" by student loans, and "cheated" by mortgage companies. She failed to mention, however, that the origins of these financial system problems can be found in the very liberal policies she and the Democratic Party have championed for the past two decades.
The crowd inside the convention hall liked her speech, but the "wild applause" was fairly constrained. The big flaw in the speech was its complete failure to reach out to anyone outside the extreme left-wing base of the Democratic Party. I can't imagine that many undecided voters actually took the time to watch the speech. Any of those who did, I'm sure, were unpersuaded by Ms. Warren's repetitive rhetoric.
The best part of the speech came when she talked about her childhood and family. But surprisingly, she made no mention of her claims of Native American ancestry which, if she's telling the truth, would be something she should be proud to tell the entire nation:

The answer is obvious. Any mention of Native Americans in her speech would have reminded the country that she has destroyed her own credibility on every issue during her Senate campaign.
Good grief. She’s looks like Granny Clampett after too much of her “medicine”...
Fauxcahontas went late then BJ Clinton went way late then they had the roll call.
No one was awake anyway.

Chris cracks me up every time he does that!!!
It is back to the Tee Pee for her.
Howie Carr pegged the over/under on hammers at 7.
LOL. I wish I could find a clip of that.
I’m doing a little HTML ‘testing’ on an old ML thread, for the CP thread, if I decide to go ahead with it.
Her speech was plain pitiful. It was a “ain’t life awful” speech from an elementary school teacher - with no recognition that the current state of affairs is largely at the feet of Obama and the Democrats. In fact as one or more of the panelists on Fox noted, it sounded like an anti-incumbent speech.
Broken link at en, on previous one; this one’s fixed.
I watched her and the word that kept coming to mind was “idiot”.
Excellent!!! I think it’s interesting Chris stands to do his program, surprised he doesn’t have one of those standing desks. You have a dangling HTML script at the end you may want to clean up.
She noted her brothers military service yet she’s anti military Occupy style.
Her hypocrisy oozes.
Or maybe stepped right off the set at SNL...
Great point! I think the mayor of San Antonio grew up during the Reagan years.
I like that photo of Paleface Dizzy Lizzy Warren.
“Yes, I’ve been caught red-handed lying about being an Indian, but that means I have red hands. That counts for something, don’t it?”
Clinton also called for the Dems fictional “trickle up” economy. First of all, nothing trickles up. Even NEA members should wince at that phrase. Second, how many people will be employed by poor people? The poor can steal from each other, or they can steal from the rich, but the rich can protect their wealth with private guards and gates (armies and castles in the Middle Ages). And they can take their wealth elsewhere.
Communism never works. China and Russia are giving it up. Democrats should give it up, too.
You own me a new monitor :-)
For all the bitchin’ around here about Scott Brown, there is our alternative.
Scott Brown v Fauxcahontas?
The choice is clear to me.
Good point. The only thing I can see that changed is the generations.
Their parents were willing to work hard and get ahead on their own.
The generations that followed want to sit on their asses and have a buffet of freebies laid out before them.
We live a couple of miles from the Massachusetts border, and I barely know what's going on in this race...
Brown a few points ahead in most polls, or dead even. Both running lots of TV, radio ads
She actually talked about a “rigged system” after the 2/3s “voice vote” change on the DNC platform.
Good Lord these people are pathetically shameless.
I agree... there are some MA Freepers who hate the guy because he isn't 100% "pure". I'd take Scott Brown over our Connecticut 'RAT Senators Dick Blumenthal and Lieberman, the former Chris Dodd, and the probably future CT Senator Chris Murphy.
My husband and I have met Scott and his wife Gail, and other members of the Brown/Huff family... they seem like good, decent people.
The choice is clear in Massachusetts: Brown 2012!
Thanks. We can't get any MA TV stations (except the Springfield, MA PBS station which doesn't have commercials anyway), so I can't see the TV ads.
My sister and her husband in Rhode Island get the Brown and Warren ads on TV. She says the Warren ads are unbearable, and can't understand why anyone would vote for her. (My sister always votes Republican, but isn't the political junkie I am, lol)
I hear maybe one Scott Brown radio ad per day during Howie Carr's radio show - on WHYN 560 AM. Seems to me he should be increasing those ads. Are pro-Scott Brown ads heard on WEEI and WRKO often?
The entirety of the PBS programming is a political commercial for leftwing causes. Warren certainly doesn't need to pay for ad time there.
Scott’s up by about five.
Granny is pouring on the “War and Womyn” and “Fighting for the Middle Class” rhetoric.
Scott had an ad showing him folding laundry, and his wife Gail Huff, former Boston TV reporter, has been doing ads for him to counter the War on Womyn mime, successfully, I believe. Granny’s cred as a protector of the middle class is risible and Scott seems to be ignoring it. I think Granny has the Democratic base, including public employees, the welfare crowd, the education-industrial complex, the chattering classes and other clients of big Government. Scott appeals to a niche market, normal people.
“How is Scott doing in the polls?”
The last polling I saw was Brown +5%.
Brown is portraying himself as a regular guy while also distancing himself from Mitt and the rest of the GOP; Granny is trying to portray herself as a woman of the people.
If I were to “rate” the tone of the race, I would rate it as Brown’s sexual energy vs. Granny Warren and her Geritol, served warm in a brandy sniffer.
...and a partridge in a pear tree.
Speaking of Fauxahauntus, one of her Cherokee ancestors made an important mathematical discovery. He had three squaws, one who sat on a bison hide, and who gave him three sons, one who sat on deer hide and gave him two sons, and one who sat on a rare imported hippopotamus hide and gave him five sons. Proving that the squaw on the hippopotamus is equal to the sons of the squaws on the other two hides.
She looks like a crazy cat lady.
And I bet she smells like one too! :)
Yes—the ads are usually “The Scott Brown Report” (similar to the “Joe Malone Report” the former GOP MA state treasurer would run). One last week had his wife, former CH 5 news reporter Gail Huff, talking about him.
The 11 pm news on Boston channels like 4, 5, and 7 feature a Brown ad followed shortly by a Warren one.
