Elizabeth Warren 2016?
Yahoo News (?) ^ | 10-25-12 | Jonathan Karl, Richard Coolidge & Sherisse Pham

Posted on 10/25/2012 7:35:15 AM PDT by bigbob

The marquee Senate race this year is in Massachusetts, where Democrat Elizabeth Warren is challenging incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown.

"I never thought I'd run for public office, but I feel the urgency of this moment," says Warren. "If we don't make some important changes and make them soon, this country is going to change fundamentally, and it's not for the better."

Democrats took notice of the former Harvard professor late last year, when a video of Warren speaking on fair taxation and debt surfaced online.

"There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody," Warren says in the video. "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 workers the rest of us paid to educate; you all were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for."

Warren's popularity among Democrats has only increased since then; there are already people talking, tweeting, and posting about Elizabeth Warren running for president in 2016.

I wouldn't wish watching this interview on anyone - especially right after eating...

I'll give Warren this much: She is the absolute epitome of the smug, condescending, "smarter-than-everyone-else", elitist Eastern Liberal. The right-coast version of Nancy Pelosi and the female version of John F'n Kerry.

The 2016 part is submitted as my entry in the "Joke of the Decade" contest...

Ah, you never met my Harvard professor sister-in-law. She could give Princess Fakeahontus a run for her money so to speak!

Her argument is so stupid that only idiots would believe it. The idea of taxation is that all the people pay for services they all use and benefit from. Using her own argument, than the police and fire department should quickly look at a list of who pays taxes before responding to a call.

“One Adam 12: respond to a burglary in progress at 1010 Elm Street.”

“OK, Bob....let’s look that address up and see if they paid any taxes.”

“Nope, they don’t actually contribute a dime in taxes. As a matter of fact, they get way more in government assistance than most people.”

“Well, screw them then....let’s go see if we can loot any of their stuff, the filthy leaches.”

I don’t think she’s eligible. Wasn’t she born on a Cherokee reservation or something like that?

She is going to be lucky to beat Brown. Much depends on turnout in D strongholds in Boston, Lawrence, Worcester, etc. If Obama appears to be a loser, then turnout will be down. I am in the 6th district and things look good for Brown and Tisei, Congressman Tierney’s opponent.

Legal Insurrection, Prof Jacobson’s site, has successfully detailed Warren’s carpetbagging nature.

Sadly, she is revered in the land of Paul Revere. By some (dedicated moonbats), but not all. Right now i'd say she's very slightly ahead, but it will come down to who shows up on 11/6.

“Station 51: respond to fire at 1214 Main Street.”

“Just a minute guys, let’s look at what they paid in taxes. Oh, not much. OK, we’ll go, but we’re only spraying a hundred gallons of water.”

If Warren could become a candidate for president I think she would do as well as George McGovern. He won one state—Massachusetts. Only that place could produce such a flock of freaks: Teddy Kennedy, Barney Franks, John Kerry, and Gerry Studds (which may have been a screen name).

And yet, we have posters here that would be happy if Scott Brown lost just to teach him and other “RINOs” a lesson about not voting 100% conservative. Its absolutely crazy. Scott Brown prevents this Communist witch from becoming a senator and influencing out laws. I donate to him on that basis alone and I don’t agree with a lot of what he does.

If she even makes it through a primary without getting laughed out, Romney will wipe his a*s with her in the first few weeks of the campaign.

The dingbats and moonbats are plentiful up there; hopefully, the union workers grow a set and don't follow what their dear leaders demand. One letter to the editor I read said, in so many words, that “Scott Brown claims he is a moderate but he voted with Republicans on 86% (or whatever the frequency) of issues... that is why we need Elizabeth Warren.” Right, someone who will vote with Dems about 99% of the time.

Well she'd have the Indian vote locked up. </sarcasm>

People who make more money pay more money into income tax. In the interest of fairness, and Lord knows Paleface Lizzy flaps her gums about fairness all the time, those who actually pay no income tax should have no government benefits. It’s only fair.

99 nah try 100. You are correct about the union vote. SB needs at least 40% of that demographic, plus strong turn out in Red areas (yes they do exist in Mass; outside of the larger cities and the 128 belt)

Agreed. If Lizzy voted 99% (instead of 100%) of the time with Dems, she would be considered “a moderate” to some lefties.

Her speech at the convention was so boring. I could not imagine listening to her for four years...Good Lord. The only speech worse was the birth control girl...Fluke or something like that.

Elizabeth Warren is flat-out awful.

It says a lot about the electorate here in the Commonwealth that a person so utterly and demonstrably devoid of character can be a "legitimate" candidate for national office so long as that candidate touts the Party Line. She is clearly the most partisan candidate to run here in a long time, and in Massachusetts, that's saying something. Pro-Warren forces are running campaign ads here which promote her by setting up the Evil Republican straw-man, as if all Republicans have horns and pitchforks.

If Warren does beat Brown, and I'm thinking Brown will end up being the winner in a squeaker, it'll finally lay to rest the notion of the Massachusetts "independent" who votes for the person rather than the party. Because there's no way anyone could claim that Warren has more character than Brown. Say what you will about Brown's politics, or his RINO-ness, but that man has character up the yin-yang.

It’s one thing to not vote 100 percent conservative, but it is another thing to vote 40 percent liberal which is what Brown does. It would not even be so bad if he would vote liberal on useless bills but NO he votes liberal on the most important bills. I am not from Mass so I don’t have a dog in the fight. It is up to Mass to pick who they choose.

Anecdotal: I was driving through Andover over the weekend, and I was shocked (shocked I tell ya) to see all the Warren signs on all the manicured lawns. They outnumbered Brown signs on the stretch of road I traveled by at least 10 to 1.

She definitely has the limo lib vote all locked up.

Lol, that’s not far off! But she has it all ass-backward - it was the private sector that agreed to pay taxes to provide for common services and infrastructure. Libs like to just dismiss this as a chicken/egg argument but it’s not. When it comes to the assets that gov’t claims as theirs: “We (the people who paid the taxes) built that”.

“Sadly, she is revered in the land of Paul Revere.”

Short of a last-moment upset, looks like Warren is going to win in Massachusetts.

Scott Brown may have been a fluke who rode to victory on the strength of his remark about “the Kennedys’ Senate seat”. It sounded good for a little while, and won the election for him against a very weak candidate, but the people of Massachusetts are who they are — leftists, by and large, and on November 6 they may well revert to form.

I hope Mr. Brown can pull the rabbit out of the hat on election day, but at this point I’d say his chances are less than 50-50.

That says more about the voters of Mass, than it does about Scott Brown or Elizabeth Warren...

If she wins her Senate race I think it could happen. I think the crises in the banking industry are by no means over. By 2016 the Dems may feel there is a lot of gold to be mined by re-running the William Jennings Bryan campaign.

Well she’d have the fake Indian and almost Indian vote locked up for sure.

"There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody," Warren says in the video. "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 workers the rest of us paid to educate; you all were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for."

Hmmmmmm....seems to me that America is actually on a pay as we go basis or should be. Those with a factory pay through the nose for the life of the factory and when it's turned over (sold) to someone else, they pay. Nobody gets any money back or needs to pay anyone back. Each generation should pay for the stuff that is built. The National Debt must be eliminated to make this scenario work once again, so subsequent generations will not have to pay for our stuff, our policies.

His woman is so full of poop.
