Skip to comments.What Went Wrong for Elizabeth Warren
Posted on 03/03/2020 1:12:32 PM PST by Oldeconomybuyer
It was the night before Super Tuesday, and Elizabeth Warren was hanging in there. Bernie Sanders had just held a massive Los Angeles rally with Public Enemy, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar had just dropped out and endorsed Joe Biden, but Warren was doing what she always does: playing the same Motown-inspired soundtrack, handing out the same Persist signs, giving another speech that sounded like a history lecture.
Six months ago, when this was all working, Warren was the candidate of the head as well as the heart. Back then, she was widely considered a Democratic frontrunner, and it all made sense: she was a solid progressive but not as radical as Sanders, a woman in a time of feminist uprising, a planner in a time of chaos. She rooted her big speeches in moments of womens activism, kept things friendly with her rivals in the interests of party unity, and seemed to have a plan for everything. By the laws of logic, she seemed to be doing everything right.
But politics isnt always logical, and just because something seems like it should work, doesnt mean that it will. Some campaigns feel like watching a slow-motion car crash, others feel like watching a car drive into a ditch. Warrens campaign began to seem like watching a car run out of gas in a traffic jam: no big catastrophe, but stalled nonetheless. Now, shes heading into Super Tuesday with persistence but not momentum, with a plan to stick it out for the long haul even if she doesnt come in first in any big state. Her campaign has made an art form out of explaining how she can win without winning.

...but she DOES have high cheekbones...
Doing everything right?
Coming up with $65 trillion in new spending that you had no clue at all how to pay for is about as far from “doing everything right” as it is possible to be Fake News
Could it be that she is a nasty duplicitous harridan? That she is the one person in America that makes Hillary seem likeable?
Like Hillary, she’s thoroughly unlikable.
1. She’s very unlikeable
2. She’s a liar.
3. She’s a scold.
— Democrat mission statement
She has the same problem they all have, it is a byproduct of being a proud progressive liberal, HATE RAGE ANGER at Everything in the World.
My view is she’s chosen at the brokered convention (Pres. or VP) - it’s going to be an interesting Dem convention...
Yeah, but she compensates for it by being stupid.
Yeah. Right up there with dirt eating Beto.
...when nobody was voting.
“America’s bitter ex-wife”
for or with?
What went wrong???? She’s about as likeable as an angry rattlesnake. . . .
Some people make it happen.
Some people let it happen.
And some people wonder what happened.
Everyone in Washington spends huge amounts of money with no idea how to pay for it. Even Republicans. In that sense she is no different.
No, she is fading because Trump thrashed her soundly about the head and neck with the Fake Indian thing. By his own admission perhaps he did so too soon.
What does groase mean?
It's not Public Enemy without FlavorFav. He refused to endorse Bernie.
