Warrenistas make low-budget video, embarass selves

No slick production values, no vague, poll-tested phrasings... just heartfelt words.

What's with these people?



P.S. Thanks to RiverLover for originally posting this video, hidden in the EW group. Hell, I'd try to hide it, too, if I were one of them.

Good point.

Thanks. You've given me some things to think about.

If elected President, which of these Democrats...

would be most likely to really turn things around?

Hillary Clinton praising Elizabeth Warren?

Holy crap!

If anyone wasn't thinking that FDR Democrats were making great progress in taking back our party...well, here we are. "Liberal" ain't a cuss word no more.

Americans are waking from our three-decade slumber.

Pedal to the metal, baby!

Question for Hillary backers: how do *you* feel about the TPP?

Hillary championed the thing as SoS, and hasn't changed her mind as far as I know. I'm a little confused about someone wanting to be a champion for the 99% while advocating an action that will likely cause bigger profits for the rich, and more job loss and wage erosion for the rest of us.

Can you understand my confusion? And I'm probably not the only one scratching their head over this.

Please help us unbelievers out. Is the TPP not a bad thing? Or is it just not a big deal? Or, so what, you just want Hillary because you want Hillary? Or... ?

Thanks in advance.

#PRDP Post# What are the *real* reasons that any person wouldn't love Hillary as our nominee?

Let's create a definitive list based on what we absolutely know in our guts.

1. They don't like women
2. They don't like strong women
3. They are Republicans
4. Benghazi!!!
5. The Clenis!!!
6. PDS (Pony Deficiency Syndrome)
7. Ratf@#kers!
8. Thinks she's too ambitious.

I think that covers it. Any other possibilities?

Fellow Liberals: we're scaring the right people.

Third-Wayer Rahm Emanuel was forced into a mayoral runoff, the first time ever in Chicago for an incumbent IIRC. And this despite having a zillion dollars in contributions from people who stand to make money from his reelection, and the backing of some notable (confessed) Republicans.

Two years ago, only four Senators voted against the rich Wall Street Banker that Obama picked to negotiate the TPP and the other international assaults on the 99%. Today, Obama seems to be having some difficulty in getting the thing slipped through in secret.

Heard much talk from Democrats about cutting Social Security lately? About the need to eat our peas and all that bull#%^*? Not really.

And this weekend, A new milestone: our newest always-was Liberal, Hillary Clinton, vowed to search tirelessly for the real [strike]killer[/strike] people who stacked the deck against the 99%. I can't wait to find the bastards.

And even the DUers who, just a week ago, were baying about the political foolishness of Liberalism are now proud Liberals themselves, but not like us previous Liberals who are still merely dolts short a pony, haters, ratf#%ckers or whatever.

We're not winning the thing yet, but we're making damned good progress.

First they steal your money
Then they moon you
Then they steal your message as candidates, then moon you once elected
Then you win
Unless you let them get away with co-opting your message

- Mahatma Goldstein (with deep aplogies to Mahatma Gandhi and all sentient beings everywhere)

Now comes the dangerous times. We Liberals are starting to mess up their plans for a fourth home here, a private plane there. They want their damned extra homes and planes, and they are rich, and they are smart, and they will #%^* up our *^%# to buy their doggies gold water bowls.

They are trying the easy way now, to co-opt our brand of political thought and action. I believe they will fail.

When the easy way fails, then things may get pretty ugly. They want our stuff, they think it belongs to them. They WANT IT, DAMMIT! Hell, we know they'll even start wars based on fantasy just to get the gold water bowls for their doggies. They are that disturbed.

Don't give it to them. Moon 'em back, instead.

If we hold fast, if we stay the course, if we're tough and press the fight, we will continue to make progress, then we'll win battles, then we'll win the war. Because we're right, and they're wrong, and this is why history has a well-known Liberal bias over the centuries.

We. Will. Win.

Because we are Liberals. The real deal.
