Ah, jeez, that damned woman will be the death of the Democratic Party



Know what she said tonight at a talk in New York City?

Q: Who does our government really work for?
A: Answer right now is a sad one. But we're going to change that.


What next? What next? Taxing the Job Creators at the same rate as the Little People? No sensible, common-sense cuts to Social Security? Making bankers actually follow the rules? Restoring cuts to food stamps and unemployment benefits? Handing Republicans their asses on a serving dish, flambeed and sauced with a delightful mango-balsamic reduction?

@#$%. She's ruining it. She's ruining everything.

Regards,

Third-Way Manny

They'd be called a sycophant, or maybe worse.

80. Notice the date on that ... 2012, not 2008.

The RW "Obama is the liberal's Messiah" meme was created when he was a candidate in 2008, not 2012.

The fact that 4 years later, Newsweek used the meme, is irrelevant to how the RW came up with that meme.

Bottom line: The OP has become that which he railed against. Just doesn't seem to know it yet.

90. The rhetorical contortions some go through to defend all things Obama should give you a clue

The right wing throws an incredible amount of rhetoric around, anything that remotely looks like sticking will be repeated endlessly.

I learned my lesson with Bubba, last ditch defense of politicians is not something I do any more.

And if anyone was treated like a Messiah it was Dubya after 9/11, I'm a proud 10%er and watching that particular display was really disturbing when you weren't part of it. Sort of like being the only sober person in a convention of delusional drunks.

Like 90% of what Republicans do, their accusations of Messiah against Obama are projection, pure and simple.

101. Are you kidding? You can see it right here on DU.

Look at all the Obama supporters - apologists really - defending things that I'm sure they would and did criticize when Bush did them, but when Obama escalates them it's all fine and is defended at the expense of having principles.

Which came first? I'm not sure, but that doesn't make it untrue. Just look in the BOG.

7. And hopefully it will STAY that way.

 

Once more people know who Elizabeth Warren is, and what she stands for... it won't go well for her.

Americans know that there is a natural class order, and that the little people must grow littler and the gig people must grow bigger. That is the the American Way - it's what makes us great. That difficult woman must NOT be allowed to upset this natural order.

40. Elizabeth Warren is not as well known, doesn't have the name recognition, of Hillary.

But Elizabeth Warren is a far more attractive candidate. She is much smarter than Hillary (and there aren't many who are) and cares more about ordinary people. Elizabeth Warren's ideas on policy would serve most of us much better than would Hillary's.

Hillary is out of touch. Elizabeth Warren touches you as soon as you hear her speak. Give Elizabeth Warren a chance.

Are you talking about followers on Facebook? I never go to Facebook or Twitter.

Some of the aspersions against her are quite unfair, but they are still there, and a lot of people believe the lies.

In addition, she is really chummy with Wall Street, once served on the Walmart board. Wow! Lot's of opportunities to diss her, and her stances on Social Security and war, etc. are not mine.

since she is A. not running for president and B. has encouraged HC to run. But let people have their little fantasies. When Warren makes her official endorsement of Clinto it will be ineresting to see if they throw her under the bus or go with the 'she had no choice' spin.

anything from them lately. We tried to warn them when the Dem Party was endorsing him, he was soooo bi-partisan we were told. Well there goes another example of bi-partisanship, down the drain. Gates, Clapper, Christie. How much does it take before our party finally figures out that you cannot trust Republicans? Or could it be that they know that already?

104. Odds are good you'd get major pushback on that score.

Particularly if you were running in a state where Japan had encroached upon the earnings potential of the region; e.g. a location where a US car manufacturer was up against Toyota or what-have-you.

Opposition research, when done properly, endeavors to make any and every possible anamoly a negative. Since most American people don't "live in Japan," (I did, for quite a few years, a few decades ago--but I am not a typical American) you would, as a candidate, be painted as an "other," an "outsider" and a person who doesn't understand the issues facing "the regular people" in the community where you were running. "While ART was off huntin' endangered whales for his meals of bloody raw fish, the rest of us were (fill in the blank)"...."While Art was baskin' in the glow of that damn nuclear reactor, the rest of us were (blah blah blah)."

It's easy to go negative. Doesn't have to be true, doesn't have to be salient (see OBAMA, Kenya, and Birth Certificate if you don't believe me). And it's often the first instinct, particularly if the candidate is unknown or has a lot of blanks just waiting to be filled in. First impressions are, after all, lasting.

109. I'd just have to counter them

with a blitz about the Arkansas side of my family, the fact that I got my hands rough with all sorts of jobs in Arkansas, the fact that I know what it is like to live from paycheck to paycheck, that I consistently voted in Arkansas elections, and that I made regular visits back to the state.

You can take the man out of Arkansas, but you can't take Arkansas out of the man

23. She will Rock the Senate!

Elizabeth Warren, a fearless consumer advocate who has made her life's work the fight for middle class families, was elected to the United States Senate on November 6, 2012, by the people of Massachusetts.

Elizabeth is recognized as one of the nation's top experts on bankruptcy and the financial pressures facing middle class families, and the Boston Globe has called her "the plainspoken voice of people getting crushed by so many predatory lenders and under regulated banks."

She is widely credited for the original thinking, political courage, and relentless persistence that led to the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. President Obama asked her to set up the new agency to hold Wall Street banks and other financial institutions accountable, and to protect consumers from financial tricks and traps often hidden in mortgages, credit cards and other financial products.

In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, Warren served as Chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Her independent and tireless efforts to protect taxpayers, to hold Wall Street accountable, and to ensure tough oversight of both the Bush and Obama Administrations won praise from both sides of the aisle. The Boston Globe named Elizabeth Warren Bostonian of the Year and TIME Magazine called her a "New Sheriff of Wall Street" for her oversight efforts.

During her campaign for the Senate, Elizabeth promised to fight for middle class families and to make sure that everyone has a fair shot to get ahead. She called for policies that would level the regulatory playing field for small businesses and ensure that everyone - even large and powerful corporations - pays a fair share in taxes and is held accountable for breaking the law.

http://www.warren.senate.gov/?p=about_senator

She is amazing, her focus is on the middle class and holding Wall Street banks and other financial institutions accountable She is going to make history in the Senate. It is her destiny! She can focus...FOCUS on these two issues. Why some wish her to waiver on her strengths is beyond me.

Hey Manny she already did do run run. Guess what she won! She is in a place that she will exceed our expectations. Sad that you always wish she leave.

29. But give credit where credit's due:

 

when our President realized the mistake he'd made, he promptly booted Warren from his administration. He is a firm and decisive leader, the pride of Wall Street.

Why can't the good people of Massachusetts be as wise as our President?

And now these nudniks want WARREN to be President? Holy @#$%.

Regards,

Third-Way Manny

46. Why do you keep revising history?

Warren did not want to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

The fact that she's on the head of the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee proves that she has more power there than she ever would have had under the CFPB.

And it's fucked up you think her ambitions were for a bureau that had to report to congress every fucking time they called upon it.

BTW, franksolich has a lot of love for you, Manny, you should probably reciprocate lest it be sadly unrequited. Dude loves you. Fawns over you. Is literally your biggest fan.

The fact that this has touched you so, I think, struck a nerve. Maybe you're not his sock, but damn, it's gotta be close. I'll figure it out.

It's going to be fuckin' awesome when Hillary Clinton is the nominee. Either flame out or indulgence (flip flop because she chooses Castro). Either way I crack the fuck up.

62. She doesn't have the charisma necessary.

 

She can't give big flowery speeches. She caters to smart people. Her thoughts do not make good fifteen second sound bites. She is too far left. People with the attention span of gnats don't like her. How do you think she will look on a beach in a bikini. She cares about the poor and income inequality.

Some people don't think of these important factors when it comes to whom they support. We need to remove her from the party. She is a threat to what the last five presidents have worked so hard for. She is a clear danger to that which is so important to us.

And that most certainly includes the Clintons. These types trend liberal on social issues but are in deep with crony capitalism otherwise.

I knew which way Obama was going when right pout the gate he brought in Rubin and Larry Summers. What a scam those in and out of Wall Street guys run, pass laws favoring huge profits for banksters when in government, then scoot back to Wall Street to profit from those loosened rules.

It's the big con and why despite fraud on a massive scale, not only did no real big shot see jail, we had to bail them out, Nice job Eric Holder.
