REPORT: Elizabeth Warren Will Get A Seat On The Senate Banking Committee

Linette Lopez
December 4, 2012

Huffington Post is reporting that Elizabeth Warren now has a seat on the Senate Banking Committee.

The freshman Senator-elect and former Harvard professor is known for being an outspoken critic of Wall Street. After being passed over for the top spot at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, an agency she helped to form, she won a nail-biter Massachusetts Senate contest against Scott Brown.

There has been a ton of speculation about which committee Warren would sit on. As a freshman, her picks take a back seat to those of more senior Senators. However, after NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said that she wouldn't be taking one of the two open seats on the Banking Committee, it looked like the field would be wide open for Warren.

And in that case, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) would have final say on whether or not Warren got the spot.

HuffPo also reports that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) will join Warren on the Committee.

You weren’t expecting her to be a member of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, were you?

There is a lesson here. A very important lesson that conservatives get angry about even hearing.

The Democrats are united, in spite of their differences.

Some Dems are more green, some are more about giveaways, some are even, dare I say, moderate. But they all share one trait, in an election, they vote for the Dem, regardless of the variety of Dem. They have decided any Dem is better than any Republican.

And they are kicking the crap out of us. The good news is, those who stick to their principles can be a principled servant of a very large, very broke, very corrupt socialist state.

Liberals have an unquestioned talent for choosing just about the most naive and ignorant females extant.

Question: Do they have to take a class for this, or is it just a natural “stupid is drawn to stupid” magnitism.

‘Lizbeth, you are an ignorant idiot.

Which - of course - is better than your compatriot, Sandra Fluke, who is an ignorant sl**.

I remember that the most discouraging thing about election night was not what happened at the top of the ticket but that this ruling-class grifter was elected. Nothing good will come of this.

Warren is a walking joke.

She and Debbi watsherface are the poster children for the Dems. Pathetic.

They have no shame.

Regardless, when the smoke clears clear, they are the ones in charge. Frightening, yes. Tragic, even more so. I don’t believe the nation can sustain this any longer. Sound the abandon ship alarm.

Because of Warren's faux 1/32 Indian heritage - she will introduce the Cowrie Shell Monetary System to Americans...

Of course she did. The Obama Leftist Base would have gone absolutely ape doo-doo if they denied her this. He would have faced a full-out revolt if she got shunted onto a National Parks committee or something.

Warren should have been arrested for fraud, but in Massachusetts, if you are a left winger like Ted Kennedy, crime pays.

At least cowries were a tangible-asset based system. Some cultures still value them.

I hope they put her on the Senate Indian Affairs Committee. It seems appropriate.

Personally I am not all that sad about the banks potentially getting a few whacks on the rear for their shenanigans. I do wish it was coming from somebody with the moral high ground though.

They have decided any Dem is better than any Republican.

Now you are getting at the problem, missed by many here, but I been getting at this.

Each party tends to unit behind their party's POTUS up until re-election and shortly afterward if they scored what they see as a decent win, against the other side. And this will continue AS LONG as the POTUS is seen as beating the other side.

Its the winning team thing.

Recall 2009 and 2010 when Rs couldnt be really blamed for anything, when they opposed O even the Senate NE RINOs joined in on most,. A few gave in on the stimulus when O’s popularity was at an all time hright, but by O-care and cap and trade 2009 and 2010 the GOPers all hung together to bring down O. And they suffered none from it

But once Bohner took the House the playing field was tilted dramatically in O’s favor. But unfortunately most Rs appeared to think it was still 2010.

What needed to be done? (and still needs to be done)

The only way Rs could beat O is to force him (and his Pelosi base) to defend things that are unpopular to voters that he needs, and ideally make him cave, but as Pelosi showed in Bush second term that was not even necessary as long as Os popularity dropped faster than the GOPs. You see how united Rs were against O-care?

Again, The team unites around team wins not losses.
Having dropped Os popularity some the GOP could have tried for some red meat, go in for the kill. Crush O and you get the gold.

As I always said, Bohner and McConnel and Romney were not up to being the winning team leaders.
