Elizabeth Warren Could Beat Hillary [Dick Morris is back]
RCP ^ | 07/16/2014 | Dick Morris

Posted on 07/16/2014 8:26:20 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

The contrast between the two women couldn't be sharper.

Hillary is the ultimate political insider, taking $20 million from Wall Street, including $5 million from Goldman Sachs. In two recent speeches to Goldman -- at $200,000 a pop -- Hillary spoke about why big banks shouldn't be blamed for the financial crisis. "We're all in this together," she reportedly told them.

Hillary's political campaigns have been financed by Wall Street. Her family foundation is underwritten by banks, corporations and foreign governments. Even as secretary of state, she aggressively lobbied for major U.S. corporations -- like Boeing -- to get lucrative foreign contracts. In Boeing's case, it returned the favor by making a $900,000 contribution to Hillary's favorite charity -- the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

Enter Elizabeth Warren, a new face in the Senate whose reputation was made by fighting the very same big banks that finance Hillary. Warren pushed for reforms in bankruptcy, subprime mortgages and student loans.

In her recent book, "A Fighting Chance," Warren criticizes the too big to fail policy as one that "allows the megabanks to operate like drunks on a wild weekend in Vegas."

She attacks Wall Street for rigging our economic system to favor the top 1 percent. She has become the darling of the left.

Like Hillary, Warren is touring America to promote her book and to campaign for progressive Democrats. Her populist economic message is attracting overflow crowds who cheer her anti-Wall Street rhetoric

Too many states with many electoral votes would choose Towelie from South Park if nominated by the Dems. Start with CA and NY. America is changing. The dumbing down is increasing.

Hillary vs Warren is another way of saying the power of the Clintons vs. the power of Obama. Even if Hillary doesn’t run (for health reasons or whatever) she and Bill want to be teh Rat kingmakers, not the usurper Obama who stole the Presidency out from under her. Don’t doubt that this is the real issue on the Dem side underlying the 2016 election.

Yeah, but I think don’t we need the Dick Morris kiss of death for this one. Warren couldn’t even beat Hillary in beauty contest, and that’s saying a lot.

Fun fact, unless Obama has serious health or legal problems, 2016 will be a dem open seat, the last time the GOP didn’t win a dem open seat was in the very first election for the party, 1856. James Buchanan was the last rat to succeed a rat by a manner other than death.

I’ll bet 75% or more registered Democrats don’t even know who Elizabeth Warren is. The true believers do, of course, but the FSA, not a clue.

Lizzie Warren took an axe,
And gave our Hillary forty whacks.
And when she saw what she had done,
She gave Slick Willie forty-one.

Anyway, Warren is as far to the left as McGovern, but not nearly as spaced out. I was in Vietnam when McGoo was promising to go on his knees to Hanoi to free the POWs. He said the U.S. military was a greater threat to freedom than the Soviet or Red Chinese militaries. That kind of spaced out.

(Pardon the flashback)

What do you mean by 'open seat'?

I sense the Democrats are counting on that low profile. Hillary Clinton is the known figure. Warren is relatively unknown and the low-information voter wants Santa Claus in any color or stripe. She will be portrayed as the fighter of the working person and the average American and of course will enhance victimized gender politics to levels we have never witnessed. The handouts will be increased. Her screaming bands of emotional nitwits will rally behind her us-against-them mentality without having to hear the message.

The Dick (aka "Toe Sucker") Morris, Barack Hussein Obama's erstwhile companion in Africa as election strategy advisor to Raila Odinga, Communist Jihadi Christian-Killer, is paid by the Clintons (and Soros).

There is no reason to take anything the fat SOB says at face value. The only man in the country dumb enough to be fooled by this traitorous dog is Sean Hannity, whose brain is merely a life-support system for his hair.

I mean the same thing “open seat” always means, a race where the incumbent is not on the ballot in the general election.

The last 7 open seats of rat Presidents were won by the GOP in 2000, 1968, 1952, 1920, 1896, 1868 (Andrew Johnson was a rat) and 1860.

I’m pretty sure he’s broken with the Clinton’s since Bill canned him for sucking a hooker’s toes (What a perv! That’s not respectable at all, unlike getting oral from an intern in the oval office).

And I believe he genuinely supported Romney and is now a very strange and unlikely Republican.

But his prognostications have been so bad it’s hard to take him seriously as a political analyst.

The person who can beat Hillary in the rat primaries is not the fugly moonbat from MA who was elected to the Senate only thanks to Obama’s coattails, the person who would be a terrible general election candidate. The kind of person who could do it is a younger male candidate, like Obama. I’d point to O’Malley in Maryland as a possible contender.

Yo, Impy. Check out Santa Claus. The Tooth Fairy, Leprechauns. The Clinton Foundation was his paymaster in Kenya. They paid him then, they pay him now.

Hillary's biggest problem is that no one (except us) could have foreseen Obama turning into quite the tyrannical incompetent Anus Flambé he has become, and she was right in there with him. She might not even want the job. I am convince-able that the Democrats want to hand the Republicans a steaming mess of an irretrievably tanked economy in 2016, leaving them holding the bag after 2014-2016 gridlock.

Some interesting economic models I have seen predict a comeback in the "Roaring 20s" .... no sooner. The country needs some combination of Eisenhower and General Pinochet, with an honest Congress ... and people to vote for them.

Might not happen.

Ah, by that I meant if Obama dies, resigns, or is removed from office, Biden will become President, and the incumbent being on the ballot in 2016 will become a possibility.

Worse than Rush.

Dick Morris Stands By Prediction: Romney Will Win 325 Electoral Votes(Nov 5 , 2012)

RE:” I’d point to O’Malley in Maryland as a possible contender.”

Obama admin warmed my heart leaking to media that my governor Martin O Malley called them and urged them to NOT send those kids to Maryland, after him (OMalley) giving that touching Dem gov's association speech saying that we as compassionate Americans MUST take them in.(playing the fools in Dem party)

I HATE Martin O Malley, more than Obama in some ways,

I feel the same way about my Governor. The great pretender Pat Quinn.

Another rat to watch is Julian Castro. A possible VP pick for any rat nominee, the same people that brought us Obama might decide to run him for the top job as the Hispanic version. He gave the keynote address at the rat convo in 2012, just like Obama did in 2004.

Cuomo Jr. may run, every election needs a candidate with daddy issues. I don't see him being the rat nominee though.

You wouldn’t think Americans would elect someone named Castro, but who ever thought they’d elected someone with Hussien as their middle name.

Any Chinese democrats out there named Mao?

I would assume putting someone with the name “Castro” on the ballot would hurt their chances with Cuban-American voters.

On the other hand, Missouri RATs just elected a Governor named “Nixon”...
