Why Elizabeth Warren should run for president
Byron York ^

Posted on 04/25/2014 12:48:40 PM PDT by PJ-Comix

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren is starting a publicity tour for her new campaign-style book, A Fighting Chance. As she talks to the press, Warren is repeating previous statements that she will not run for president in 2016. But her denials aren't really denials, and her party's unique presidential circumstances give Warren plenty of room to run. Judging by what she has said publicly, there's no reason to rule out a Warren candidacy.

First, the non-denial denials. This week ABC's David Muir asked Warren, "Are you going to run for president?" Warren's response was, "I'm not running for president."

That's the oldest lawyerly evasion in the book. Warren, a former law professor, did not say, "I am not going to run for president." Instead, she said she is "not running," which could, in some sense, be true when she spoke the words but no longer true by, say, later this year.

A big reason to want Warren to run would be the FUn of seeing Hillary throw a fit if it happens. Of course, at that point, inside info about how Fauxahontas Affirmative Actioned her way into Harvard Law would be blasted across the land.

Cat Fight! Cat Fight! Cat Fight!

She must run. Someone must stand up for the unabashed and unadulterated kook wing of the Democrat Party.

The mere announcement by Warren would cause Hillary to blow a fuse. The Clinton War Room would be running 24/7 to dig up Fauxahontas dirt on her.

We all remember how Hillary was a “lock” in Dec 2007, then some guy from Kenya by way of Chicago snuck in and stole the kishka.

Could happen again.

I think the important indicator is to watch Axlegrease and Plouffy. If they jump in with the Clinton Crime family, Hillary’s good to go. If not, hmmmm.

I think she should run for First Lord of the British Admiralty.

She’s equally qualified (which is: not at all) and its a cooler sounding title AND...

wait for it...

I’m pretty sure that no faux US native American has EVER held the post!

How’s THAT for diversity?

I guess she’s a viable candidate in a world where one’s skin color or gender or cheek bones are more important than one’s actual accomplishments....or the lies told about them.

Elizabeth RunningHare has heard from the Great Spirit and will run swift as the deer for Big Chief to bring all tribes together and to stand firm against the double-tongued pale faces.

My gawd, I cannot think of a more stupid human being in the multiverse. She’d lose an IQ constest with my cat.

Of course, as such, she so very fits your typical liberal politician mold.

Perhaps it’ll be OK should she be elected, because CW-II is most definately assured.

And it’ll be a delight watching MA freeze to death in the dark next winter when we cut the liberal idiots off.

A lot of FReepers felt the Chicago mob was able to blackmail the Clinton Crime Family over Arkancide, preventing them from attacking Obama on the birth cert, etc.

If Fauxcahontas becomes their candidate, it could happen again.

I don't know, after Obama, I realized ANYBODY who runs can get elected. As much as I despise Hillary, she and Bill are more in it for the money and power and wouldn't do a whole lot to rock the boat. From listening to Warren, and watching her wide eyed ranting, I honestly believe she is a true-blue card carrying communist, and would be quite happy to try and bring down the capitalist system and foment some type of “worker's revolution”

Exactly. It makes me puke to hear people, especially on the “right”, proclaim her inevitable in 2016.

“With Clinton 50-plus points ahead of any other potential candidate..”

Now you KNOW this came from a lying leftist.

“She has had a few health scares.”

Not enough, apparently. She is still breathing.

“Clinton has never really excited the most liberal wing of the Democratic Party. They see her as an overcautious centrist like her husband..”

Which illustrates exactly HOW far to the left the Democrat party has moved.

If Warren runs, she can eat up Hillary’s cash. On the other hand she could allow Hillary to position herself as “conservative” - like Lenin compared to Trotsky I suppose.

“This is Warren’s only chance to run.”

Thank God for small favors.

“She has had a few health scares.”

That's the key to inspiring the Entitlement Army turnout. The VP candidate will be a DeVal Patrick or Cory Booker type with the community organizers "wink winking" to the troops about Hillary's failing health.

Hillary needs primary foil for many strategic reasons. So don’t worry, she’ll welcome Liz ‘running mouth’ Warren. It’s Kabuki theater.

Yes.

From the look in her eye etc, the Faux Injun could be this years version of Howard Dean.

Only hope ‘we’ are lucky enough to have her self destruct sooner rather than later.

Of course, the GOPe imploding while trying to find someone equally as crazy and unwanted as Lizzie would also be worth the ‘price of admission’.

Genealogical research has proven that Warren is a direct descendent of Geronimo:

Hillary is not Bill. Bill governed Arkansas and understands the process. Hillary doesn’t. She is just another ideologue that would continue Obama’s ‘Forward’ progression.

Warren will be Hillarys VP. The press would laud it as a “dream ticket” and finally remove that evil thing called testosterone from all public policies.

Well, now that we have endured BO, the bar is pretty low.

Next thing you know we will have people getting elected that think an island will tip over because of too many people.

OR that WE planted a flag on MARS

OR FDR gave his 1932 speech on TV

OR some day we may elect a Black man because he is light skinned and doesn’t talk with a Negro dialect - UNLESS he wants to
