Skip to comments.Elizabeth Warren for President?
Posted on 07/18/2014 9:47:21 PM PDT by nickcarraway
It was one of those important-but-dull Senate hearings that dont get broadcast even on C-SPAN 3.
An obscure subcommittee was taking expert testimony on patient safety Thursday, and only four of its 14 members bothered to show up. Several of the public seats were empty, too.
But Elizabeth Warren was in her element.
The committees most junior member was the first senator to arrive, five minutes early, and when it was her turn to question the witnesses she blew past the time limit. It was as though she were back at Harvard Law School, using the Socratic method to lead students to her desired conclusions in favor of stricter standards for hospitals and prescriptions.
Dr. Jha? . . . Okay, good, and Dr. Gandhi wants to add to that? . . . Dr. Pronovost, you want to get into this? . . . Okay, so weve got payment responsibility. Very powerful. Dr. Disch? . . . What would be the next step? . . . Finish your sentence.
A draft-Warren boomlet is underway, with the purpose of encouraging her to challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2016. It is eerily similar to the movement that propelled Barack Obama to challenge Clinton eight years ago even though, like Warren, Obama had then served not quite two years in the Senate. But while Warren is a compelling figure a feisty populist at a time of inequality and resentment her actions since arriving in the Senate suggest she has neither interest in nor aptitude for a presidential candidacy.

I don’t discount this. A nothing coming from nowhere? We’ve been through this before.
Sucks to be the poster child for the demented.
Yeah. Warren for President. Two braindead presidents in a row. That’ll be “historical”.
Warren has one serious problem...no enthusiasm in speeches. From maybe three of her speeches that I’ve seen...she’s nowhere near the class of Clinton or Obama. I should add since becoming a Senator....she hasn’t accomplished anything noteworthy...and she’s not a minority (unless you count the 1/16th in her as American-Indian).
We are living under the reign of a fake American, why not a fake Indian (excuse me ... I mean fake native american).
Yup. Another novelty freak.
Yes. A drumbeat for someone no one knows, except enough to know she’s been disgraced publicly for her dishonest biography.
That won’t matter. People will be told she is a compelling figure and they’ll nod their heads in agreement. Hillary is the smartest woman in the world. Obama is Peace Prize material. Michelle is just like Jackie O.
This stuff doesn’t work on me, so I assume it doesn’t work on anyone. Then you listen to people jabbering in the next booth at Denny’s, you look at who’s in line with you at the voting booth, and you realize that this stuff is as effective as it needs to be.
Lefty’s love Warren.
And they are so truly ignorant they don’t even know about her fraudulently (and racistly) pretending to be Indian so she would fall under affirmative action hiring.
Obama got the full black vote which is part of how he won, twice.
Does anyone seriously see blacks voting for Warren like that? Or Moderate women?
I don’t see it. So far.
And that's hard to pull off.
Lying cow who claims ancestry falsely, gets caught, and still gets a seat in politics..
Yeah, I can see her getting into office the same way, fraud and stupidity.
I think her alleged distance from the media described by the author has to do with money rather than diffidence. Warren probably sees that Hillary has the money and the IOUs from the party establishment all monopolized and an Obama style upstart probably would have no chance this time around with the insiders who provide the indispensable funds.
This one is as nuts as Sheila Jackson-Lee and so far left she thinks Stalin was a conservative.
The CPUSA member from MA needs to make a case to capture the rest of that demographic.
nothing moderate about Warren
I am not sure Hillary is even going to run
If there’s a lefty “draft Warren” movement, there needs to be an immediate “vet Warren” movement on behalf of conservatives. Dig out her past before they think to lock it all away. Obama got lucky, in that he hit the big time before anyone thought to check him out, and we can all see the result. Now is the time to find out who Warren is, what she’s done, and the people she’s associated with, and catalog it carefully.
No offense.....but, heck! Look at Obama! What the heck did he do? He came out of left field! :)
Well, she does have ‘piece of crap liar’ on her resume’ so I guess the dems will love her.
I haven’t seen my first “I’m Ready for Fauxcahontas” bumper sticker yet.
Yep. All you need is good marketing.
We truly live in an “Idiocracy”.
She has the perfect campaign song ready-made:
I’M AN INDIAN, TOO
from ANNIE GET YOUR GUN
I know some leftist Texans. The babble from the rabble is Elizabeth Warren in 2016.
...her paleface liar...smoke'm too much POS pipe.
all hat, no cowboy. empty suit. warm body. call it what you will. seems to be the liberal paradigm.
just a shell for special interest groups to fill.
Warren for president.....Obama for president.....Clinton for president......what’s the difference? All are totally incompetant
How about Patty Murray for her veep? Combined IQ of 80.
Have you heard this LIGHTWEIGHT give a speech?
Stupid assholes from Massachusetts aspiring to the Executive are hardly in short supply.
B. “middle class”
lather, rinse, repeat.
I think there’s a lot of frustration between the Hillary camp and the Obama camp. Obama is pressing for Warren to get a fair chunk of national party campaign money, and dominates the leadership of the National Democratic Party. Both Bill and Hillary are against the Warren idea....but there’s no way that Hillary will be running in 2016. So, somewhere out there....there’s the Democrat that Hillary is going to saddle up with, and hope to take Obama’s “pal” down a couple of notches.
these leftists pimp out their hardest of hardcore leftists for political office then try to tell us on the Right who is an electable Republican and its never a Conservative. How is it these Leftists have any power over the GOP??????????
Warren has a face made specially for radio, worse than hillary. She is not charismatic or affable or has any kind of personality at all. Obama and Hillary at least can fake it with the “it” factor that makes some dummy think they are really swell, Elizabeth Warren hasn’t got it other than she excites the upper crust Harvard lib crowd.
Not in my book!! I think all progressives should be in San Quentin Prison!!
Throwing all people who disagree with you in prison? Sounds like you have a progressive attitude?
Imagine if Sarah had made some ridiculous claim of being an Indian because of high cheekbones and that her aunt supposedly told her so. The MSM would be merciless. Warren walks.
I am not sure Hillary is even going to run
I agree. I think it’s likely she will raise as much money as she can and then announce she isn’t running and then pocket as much of the cash as possible.
Hitlery will remain a crook until she takes her last breath.
So, somewhere out there....theres the Democrat that Hillary is going to saddle up with, and hope to take Obamas pal down a couple of notches.
That would be Andrew Cuomo, IMO.
Warren makes me ill. Watching females foam at the mouth for her will make me even more ill. It's like watching Sandra Fluke's 2012 speech all over again but much much worse.
One could have said the same thing about Obama in 2007. Executive ability and competence are not among the criteria that the left uses to select its candidates. The ability of conservatives to produce actual, documented negatives in a leftist candidate’s background have the potential to damage that candidate enough that they are unable to successfully run. The last thing the US needs right now is another cipher pushed into office solely because their presence makes the left “feel good” about themselves. The office of the President is not the venue for guilt assuagement.
Blacks vote for the one with most handouts...95%
Color is secondary
See Steve Cohen.
They are not looking for accomplishment, clearly. Not with Obama, and not with whoever follows him. They are looking for another pantomime president who will keep the camera’s attention while the Committee governs.
You bet she’s running, and she’s supported by the same bunch of Sixties radicals that suckered the public into electing Obama. IMO she’s more dangerous than Hillary if that can be imagined! Her school marm appearance is totally misleading: she’s a very dangerous person.
However the Blue collar Democrats and blacks would vote for Hillary, especially if Bill helped her. The wild card is her health.
Sarah didn’t have to fake being an Indian because she is married to an Eskimo. Todd is one half or one quarter blood and even her kids would be eligible for preference.
And unlike Warren, who claims her family opposed and supposedly hid their connection, Sarah never tried to pretend Todd or her kids were inferior because of it,.
Abortion, birth control and screwing over America’s producing class.
Go beyond those three issues and Lieawatha is a fish out of water.
