A real Elizabeth Warren moment (this time on single-payer)

A real Elizabeth Warren moment (this time on single-payer)

Anyone who has seen Elizabeth Warren deal with the Cherokee issue knows the routine — immediately change the subject, answer the question you wanted asked not the question actually asked, keep talking rapidly, and most of all, act as if you have not just been caught in a lie.

This video in which Warren is caught telling a tall tale about her support for a single-payer system (via Red Mass) is classic Warren:

Notice that when the interviewer reads Warren’s own words back to her contradicting her claim that she does not support single payer, she immediately mentions that she wrote it with two other people — as if that has anything to do with anything, but it was a convenient segue to pretending she was not caught misrepresenting her own position.

The full interview is here (segment starts at 2:45).

good time to see how the Cherokee nations like gov’t run health care:wiki

The Indian Health Service (IHS) is an operating division (OPDIV) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). IHS is responsible for providing medical and public health services to members of federally recognized Tribes and Alaska Natives. IHS is the principal federal health care provider and health advocate for Indian people, and its goal is to raise their health status to the highest possible level. IHS provides health care to American Indians and Alaska Natives at 33 hospitals, 59 health centers, and 50 health stations.

Say what you may, but when it comes to Warren you get the genuine Democratic Party article. A liar and deceiver through and through.

She will follow the Democratic line so thoroughly that Durbin and Schumer will be worried that she’s after their next-in-line position to succeed Reid.

I’ve lived in MA all my 67 years. Once people get a look at her…no way she’s going to win. Where does she get her haircut? BOWLS R US? Her accent is all wrong. The lying won’t matter, however.

It’s funny. I don’t like hanging out with people like her. Most people wouldn’t. She lies and exaggerates. But yet she is a viable candidate to be a Senator. I don’t understand the politics in this country.

Why would a person running for Senator from MA even want to get involved in the current health care debate. How would it impact the state? The plan Romney put in place and updated by Patrick put almost double the number of people originally estimated into the state subsidized system. Will Obamacare pick up some of those costs? Regardless, what does she mean “we need to make sure families are covered?” There are few left in MA.

It sounds like she first says “NO, you have to look more closely”, then when quoted she says “that’s right … BUT the point is …”

The interviewer brought up the other authors, but Warren denies till caught by the direct quote, then just flips to “right, but that’s not important”. Lying is not important, just part of the game. Let’s just move on as if I didn’t just get caught in another lie. It’s so routine for her, it’s almost like she does it all the time.

That Warren gets tripped up by onetime Cambridge, MA city Councillor, Jim “the Red” Braude, makes it twice as schweet.

Teddy Kennedy was a much better liar. I don’t think Liz is qualified to hold his old seat.

ln sharp contrast to Lizzie Liar. (New sentance so as not to mention both in same) Separation! ; Separation!! Our women gymnasts are some of the gutsyist people on the planet! Amazing performance tonight !! Nastia Lukin & Rebecka Broh wont go , both climbed back up to continue after severe falls. Shear will & excellance!

Love the “…ohhhh…” at 00:28.

A Republican PAC should do an ad inserting Warren’s “Ohhh” after every one of a series of lies.

“I didn’t tell Harvard I was a Native-American.”

“Ohhh”

“I told Hardvard I was Native-American — but only after I was hired.”

“Ohhh”

“The recipes for Cold Omelet with Crab Meat in the cookbook Pow Wow Chow has been in my family for generations”

“Ohhh”

The recipe was plagiarized from the pricy French restaurant Le Pavilion.

“Ohhh”

Etc.

    Cops call these kinds of responses ‘telling words,’ because they are an autonomic response when caught in a lie or a contradiction. People will also look away or close up their body language.

    Yes, lying convincingly is either the outcome of training and feedback sessions (Mossad and KGB were past masters if this) or a personality characteristic associated with certain disorders. (Aren’t images of Bill, Hillary and 0Bama flashing through your subconsciousness right now?)

If this woman isn’t teaching a doctoral program in dissembling her talents are wasted.

Like a good Marxist, she works in a troika, so anything that is said or written, can be attributed to an error of the collective or, in the worst case, blamed on someone else. Same with her seminal “academic” work, that is based on smoke and mirrors. It wasn’t her fault. None of it is. Even her belief that she’s part Cherokee can be blamed on her Memaw.

Gooooooood little Marxist. You may go to the head of your soviet, now.

If the good citizens of MA vote her in, they’ll get what they wished for.

Osmosis ! Gilbert O’Sulivan in Japan !

Woohoo.

Everytime she moves her lips she risks spontaneous combustion of her pants.

Sad to say, but she would fit right in with the rest of the Senate.
