Awkward first press conference for senator-elect Warren
http://www.bostonherald.com/ ^

Posted on 11/09/2012 7:17:46 AM PST by jakerobins

A jittery U.S. senator-elect Elizabeth Warren gave one-sentence answers, ducked questions and even passed one on to Gov. Deval Patrick in an awkward first press conference since the election.

Warren spoke for a total of less than four minutes during the 11-minute press conference — the rest was taken up by Patrick and reporters’ questions

After being asked her first question — how she’d protect defense spending — Warren was silent as she turned to Patrick.

“Defense spending is you,” Patrick prodded Warren.

Where were these questions a week ago? Would any sane person sign a 6-year, non-terminable, employment contract with someone they never interviewed?

Own it, Massholes, or at least the 50-whatever percent of you that voted for Fauxcahontas. She’s yours for the next six years. Enjoy it.

I have a real lack of tolerance and sympathy for liberals right now. Probably because of some of the attitudes I saw among my liberal acquaintances on Tuesday night.

She’ll fit in great with Maxine (seen the mars rover over to the lunar landing site)Waters, the Georgia congress critter that thought Guam would tip over and the rest of the Democratic congress folks!

Waters is from LA. You may be thinking of McKinney.

She should have just offered everyone a shot at the Pow Wow Chow breakfast bar at the back of the room.

She’s more corrupt than smart—obviously.

You know what would be funny? Let’s make a big deal about the First Native American Woman in the Senate!

Wow I never thought I’d live to see the day. This is a wonderful example of diversity and inclusion! Imagine, after al these years, an Native American gets elected to the US Senate!

Her looks are fine—probably above the average for a male US Senator.

But she is not very bright at all.

Just a corrupt ideologue.

Still, if Ted Kennedy’s formidable team of staffers coalesce under her, they could be a force in the senate, with her as their puppet. (They have experience at that. They are also very good at constituent service, so we should expect her to hold the seat for a good length of time.)

I am not sure if anyone else has made this observation but I have a theory about Warren. She is 62 years old-a bit late to start a senate career. So she does one term at most.
She is keeping the senate seat warm to be handed over
to a Kennedy, probably the one that just got elected to congress from MA. Kennedy was not ready for the senate but will be in six years. It would not surprise me if Warren
steps down in say four years-Kennedy is appointed to fill out her term and runs on his own in six years.

Maybe they should ask their questions in Cherokee and then she would understand.

Boy, what an idiot!

The damage she is going to inflict on the country in the next 6 years will be great. I think little will be done directly to Massachusetts as they are a lost cause but, her votes in the coming years will contribute to the overall damage to the country and especially to those red states which are antithetical to her positions.

Dim Bulbs like Warren are the unintended consequence of the 17th Amendment to the Constitution. Now to win a Senate seat, all you have to do is out promise your opponent just as in th eHouse of Representatives. A superRepresenative really. Is she really any different from Thad Cochran or John McCain or Barbra Boxer and oh so many others over the past 95 years. Theo Bilbo for God’s sake. No,she has a lot of company in Washington and will fit right in.

The clip I just saw her did not include any questions asked of her from reporters. Maybe the original video has been pulled. She definitely needs to get to the gym soon. Her posture is terrible! If she doesn't have osteoporosis she is more than likely osteopenia!

As the woman who claimed to be the intellectual force behind the Occupy Wall Street movement she turned out to be not very smart.

BTW, who gives up a $365,000 a year job teaching 1 class a semester for a 24/7 thankless job that pays almost half and she can’t use her fake law license to practice illegally. Not the brightest bulb in the box.

I wouldn’t worry too much about Lizzie’s salary.
Congress is the only job where people spend millions to get a job that pays thousands - for a reason.....
