  • Hmmm … Elizabeth Warren refuses to say she “will not run” for President (Watch out Hillary!)

    I told you so.  Elizabeth Warren’s repeated supposed refusals to run for President always were framed in the present tense: I am not running for President.That, of course, technically was correct.  I don’t think anyone of note “is” running for President yet, but many are seriously considering it and likely will run.Nothing makes Warren’s word games more clear than her interview with (my law school classmate) Ruth Marcus of The Washington Post:

    Only In Massachusetts: Elizabeth Warren Supporters Debate Her Hair, Glasses, And ImageBy Todd Domke September 15, 2012 Please check your U.S. history textbook. Has there ever been such impassioned debate among campaign activists over their candidate’s image? If you haven’t noticed, commentaries and reader comments at WBUR and in other media have generated a great controversy: Some supporters of Elizabeth Warren think she needs a makeover and others believe she’s wonderful as she is. Dan Payne, my Democratic counterpart, brought this simmering disagreement to a boil when he wrote a commentary, “What’s Wrong With The Warren Campaign?” Dan offered a...
  • A “You didn’t build that” convention? (Elizabeth Warren to be keynote speaker at DNC convention?)

    Could Democrats really be this tone deaf? For nearly two weeks, Team Obama has been reeling from his "you didn't build that" comment --- to the extent that Barack Obama himself had to cut a personal response ad to stanch the bleeding, so far to no avail. And yet, the Charlotte Observer picks up on a Boston Globe report from ten days ago that the "buzz" around the Democratic convention (such as it is) has the author of that argument, Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, under serious consideration to be the keynote speaker at the DNCC: The crowds at political conventions...

    If there’s anything Granny Warren hates more than a fake Indian or a plagiarist, it’s one of these damn real-estate speculators buying up the hammered middle class’ homes and flipping them for big bucks. Unless, of course, Granny is the hypocrite conniving with the banks to do the hammering and the hacking. Granny wrote in 2000 that foreclosure sales “are notorious for fetching low prices.” And boy, would she know. Here’s a foreclosed property she picked up in Oklahoma City at 2123 NW 14th St. for $4,000 in 1993. She transferred it to her brother and his wife in March...

    Native Americans — outraged by Elizabeth Warren’s admission yesterday that she told her Ivy League bosses about her purported tribal roots — accused the embattled Democrat of snubbing them and vowed to protest at tomorrow’s state convention even as she scrambled to placate supporters. “If she really wanted to reach out to our native people and have a discussion about issues that are affecting us, then she needs to talk to our tribal media,” said Rhonda Levando Gayton, president of the Native American Journalists Association. Rob Capriccioso, a reporter with Indian Country Today, said he has reached out to Warren’s...

    You can almost feel sorry for the moonbat community of Massachusetts as they contemplate the rubble of the Elizabeth Warren campaign. They thought they were putting up a modern-day Joan of Arc. Instead, it turns out they’ve found the Rosie Ruiz of politics. Of course they’re conceding nothing — any day now, the Globe will be publishing an editorial exhorting the voters to elect her as the first female Native American member of the U.S. Senate. But aren’t the rich Trustafarians who want to pretend there’s no story here the very same liberals who supposedly believe so fervently in affirmative...

    The race for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts has taken a turn toward the absurd. The contest pits two highly qualified candidates — Scott Brown, the incumbent, who made history by snatching Ted Kennedy’s seat away from the Democrats, and challenger Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard Law professor and whiz-kid of the Obama administration who created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. If any election could be counted on to maintain a high-minded tone and stick to important issues, it’s this one. Instead, Topic A is Warren’s facial features. From a campaign standpoint, Warren hasn’t done much to end this silly brouhaha. She...

    Thoughts from Polly's Granddaughter ^ | May 14, 2012 | Polly's Granddaughter
    There has been a lot in the news about Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard law professor who is running for US Senate. It seems she may have wrongly claimed to be Native American to help further her career. Of course, she claims she "checked the box" to get involved in social activities with "people who are like" she is. I would like to know what she meant by the statement "people who are like I am." If she means people like Ward Churchill, I guess I get it, but if she means people like me and other REAL Indians, I...
  • At Harvard, Elizabeth Warren known as tough, demanding, dynamic prof; heritage claims 'ludicrous'

    05/13/2012 3:27:28 PM PDT · by matt04 · 24 replies
    Teaching her class at Harvard Law School one day, professor Elizabeth Warren called on a student who was unprepared. The student said, “I’ll pass.” Warren’s response was, “Not likely.” That story, passed from one class to the next about Warren, exemplifies the way colleagues and former students view the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts. Warren is known as a tough and demanding professor. She is also dynamic, well-prepared and treats each student as an individual, past students and colleagues say. “She expects a lot,” said Adam Levitin, a professor at Georgetown Law School who was a student...

    Many critics have called Massachusetts Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren a "racist" for relating a family story about how her grandfather had "high cheekbones like all Indians do." But they're wrong. The comment wasn't "racist." It was stupid. In fact, it was childishly stupid. Really, it reminds one of the copout Bill Clinton disgorged when addressing his marijuana use: "I tried it, but I didn't inhale." And it should come as no surprise, either — leftists are childish. As for the "racism" charge, many conservatives take that leaf out of the left's book because, they figure, turnabout is fair play. If...

    American Thinker ^ | May 6, 2012 | Thomas Lifson
    The awful truth is dawning on many Democrats, possibly including Elizabeth Warren herself: her candidacy for "Teddy Kennedy's seat" has turned into a nightmare, raising all sorts of uncomfortable issues for public scrutiny. Even worse, Alinsky's favorite tool, ridicule, is being deployed to make points that inflict lasting damage on sacred cows of the left like affirmative action and the transcendent wisdom of Harvard Law School progressives. It is starting to damage the Democratic brand. You would have to search hard to find anyone who better embodies the liberals' you're-too-stupid-to-make-your-own-decisions mentality than Elizabeth Warren. She was the brains behind...

    She obviously figures she owes her success to her ability to manipulate the victimization of America's First Nation People to secure a teaching position at Harvard; since, according to Ms Warren, no one achieves success on their own. I hear all this, you know, ‘Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever. No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own — nobody. You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired...
