  • Scott Brown calls for Todd Akin to drop out of Senate race

    As a husband and father of two young women, I found Todd Akin’s comments about women and rape outrageous, inappropriate and wrong. There is no place in our public discourse for this type of offensive thinking. Not only should he apologize, but I believe Rep. Akin’s statement was so far out of bounds that he should resign the nomination for US Senate in Missouri.
  • New Elizabeth Warren ad: Golly, why aren’t we more like China?

    Suddenly, I'm getting more enthusiastic about watching the Democratic convention. The latest ad from the DNCC's prime-time speaker compares America unfavorably to China, demands more government spending, and its title "Rebuild" reminds voters of her original "you didn't build that" rant to entrepreneurs. What could go wrong?CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO The New York Sun can't quite believe that someone who wants Elizabeth Warren to win would have approved this ad for distribution: The first problem is mathematical. U.S. gross domestic product is about $15 trillion a year. Increasing infrastructure “investment” to the 9% Chinese level that Ms. Warren...
  • Elizabeth Warren: Some Of My Best Friends Are Small Businesses

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    In an unintentionally hilarious variation on the some-of-my-best-friends-are line employed by people defending themselves against accusations of prejudice, Elizabeth Warren—lefty Dem candidate for Senate from Massachusetts—has claimed that various people close to her have started small businesses. Warren let loose her laugh line on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show this evening, responding to an ad Sen. Scott Brown is running that reveals how President Obama's "you didn't build that" line was eerily similar to an earlier Warren utterance. View the video here.

    Elizabeth Warren for President? Democrats' Barren 2016 BenchBy Molly Ball, The Atlantic | National Journal – 5 hrs ago Regardless of whether the president wins re-election, the Obama era will be over before long. Democrats will have to find a new leader on whom to pin their hopes. But who? I went to a conference of liberal activists this week hoping to find out whom the party's activist base sees as its up-and-coming stars. But the exercise turned out to be revealing largely for how unprepared people were to answer the question. Nearly every answer I got began with a...

    (No MSNBC, Vicki Kennedy can’t endorse a candidate)U.S. Sen. Scott Brown has accepted a debate invite at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute with Elizabeth Warren, but with two conditions attached, his campaign announced this afternoon. First, the Brown camp wants Vicki Kennedy to pledge neutrality in the race and not endorse either Brown or Warren. Second, Brown wants only local media to sponsor the event, not MSNBC, but Brown has approved Tom Brokaw as moderator.

    Cherokee, Warren showdownTribe activists find Liz claim ‘offensive’ By Chris Cassidy Monday, June 18, 2012 - Updated 1 hour ago Four outraged Cherokee activists who say Elizabeth Warren’s campaign has ignored their emails and phone calls will trek to Boston this week in hopes they can force a meeting with the Democratic Senate candidate over her “offensive” Native American heritage claims. “It’s almost becoming extremely offensive to us,” said Twila Barnes, a Cherokee genealogist who has researched Warren’s family tree. “We’re trying to get in contact and explain why her behavior hurts us and is offensive, and she totally ignores...

  • Elizabeth Warren's 'Native American' claims: if a Republican, the media would call her a racist

    The Telegraph (UK) ^ | June 14, 2012 | Tim Stanley
    Imagine if a Republican candidate claimed, confidently, that she was part Native American. Imagine if she had actually used that identity to have herself listed as a minority at Harvard, qualifying her for special treatment and celebration as proof of how diverse and progressive her department is. Imagine if, many years later, it turned out that her claims to Native heritage were dubious and, when pressed for proof, she offered her “high cheekbones.” Oh, and she once contributed a recipe to a Native American cookbook called “Pow Wow Chow” (that may even have been plagiarised).

    PROVIDENCE — Elizabeth Warren sought to put U.S. Sen. Scott Brown on defense today, attempting to tie him to former Bay State Gov. Mitt Romney and the Republican presidential nominee’s conservative values at a progressive rally where she was warmly welcomed. “Now if you have any doubt about where the Romney-Brown Republicans stand just consider this: the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, has said he would repeal all financial reform,” she said. “The Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, said corporations are people. No Mitt, corporations are not people. ... Learn the difference.” ... Warren’s assault against Romney — who shares a chief...

    Dogged by weeks of questions about whether her claims of Native American heritage helped advance her career, Elizabeth Warren now faces skepticism from some of Boston’s black ministers whose appearance with Scott Brown just after his 2010 election to US Senate helped shape Brown’s image as a different breed of Republican. “It will take more than an impromptu endorsement by Governor Patrick to make an intellectually compelling case why Elizabeth Warren deserves to be the next senator,” said the Rev. Eugene F. Rivers III, referring to the state’s governor, Deval Patrick, who is black. Rivers said he will ask Warren...

    Elizabeth Warren fessed up last week and admitted telling Harvard Law School officials she was a Native American. Actually, it wasn’t quite a fess up – because she admitted only what she had to and didn’t apologize for taking weeks to answer the question. She also didn’t put the problem to rest. In fact, her announcement was provocative rather than reassuring because it was oddly cavalier, suggesting she sees the whole controversy as no big deal. And her words were so surgically prepared, they seemed more tactically designed to make the press go away than help voters assess the situation....

    Obama senior adviser David Axelrod was met with protests from Romney supporters at a press event in Massachusetts today. A frustrated Axelrod, who was shouted down, tells the protesters "they can't handle the truth." After his brief remarks, Axelrod asked for questions from the press but was met with more banter from Romney protesters with slogans like "where are the jobs?" "You can't handle the truth, my friends. That's the problem. If you can handle the truth, then you quiet down," Axelrod said.

    House Dem: Warren response on heritage 'like water torture'By Cameron Joseph - 05/31/12 06:05 PM ET Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren (D) has badly botched questions surrounding her Native American heritage and the issue is damaging her campaign, Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) told The Hill. "There has to be an answer for this at some point, something that's full and comprehensive and has some closure to it as opposed to the way it's been dragged out — like water torture," Lynch said late Thursday afternoon. Asked if Warren and her campaign should put out all the information to put the...

    SPRINGFIELD — Fearing a costly and potentially damaging primary, the Democratic establishment at yesterday’s convention went all in for Elizabeth Warren — warts and all — as party leaders muscled out her longshot rival, allowing the embattled candidate to focus on Republican incumbent U.S. Sen. Scott Brown. She spent the week leading up to the loyalist gathering trying to clear up the scandal. She fessed up to telling Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania about her tribal roots when she had originally said she didn’t know how they found out. She also once again defended her heritage, telling supporters she...

    Results are trickling in. I’m having trouble finding any webpages with official results as of this moment, but the Twittersphere has reported that Elizabeth Warren received 95.77% of the vote. If this is confirmed, Warren will have successfully secured the Democratic nomination and won’t be forced into a primary battle. Official results to come as soon as they are available. WAJ UPDATE: It’s official, the delegates have deprived voters of a choice for the first time in history, and handed the nomination to Warren.

    As Massachusetts Democrats meet at their nominating convention today, some members of the Cherokee Nation are stepping up a campaign to get answers about candidate Elizabeth Warren’s claims of tribal ancestry – a sideshow controversy that has nevertheless begun to wobble one of the most closely-watched Senate campaigns in the country. This week, Indian reporters say they were snubbed by Warren’s campaign as they sought clarification on why Ms. Warren was listed as a minority Native faculty by Harvard in the 1990s, even though she has no evidence to back that claim and apparently never sought out other Native Americans...

    Last night, in an interview with the Boston Globe, Elizabeth Warren claimed that her parents were forced to elope because her father’s family objected to her mother’s Native American heritage: "In the 1930s, when my parents got married, these were hard issues,’’ Warren said. “My father’s family so objected to my mother’s Native American heritage that my mother told me they had to elope. [emphasis added] Breitbart News has obtained a copy of what it believes to be Warrens' parents’ marriage certificate from Hughes County, Oklahoma, dated January 4, 1932.
