Barney Frank and I agree! (that Elizabeth Warren will run for President)

Barney Frank and I agree! (that Elizabeth Warren will run for President)

Warren played hard to get when it came to running for Senate too

You can feel it growing.

Barney Frank thinks Elizabeth Warren will run for President, despite her present-tense denials:

 What Barney Frank lacks in tact, he makes up for in clarity.

The former Massachusetts congressman tells the State House News Service in Massachusetts that it’s “very unlikely” Hillary Clinton won’t seek the presidency in 2016.

But he also believes Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., – who is in the midst of a publicity tour for her new book – privately harbors White House ambitions.

She is a senator, after all.

Asked whether Warren has any inclination to seek the presidency, Frank said, “Oh, I think yes. In the first place, why would you want to get into a profession and have no interest in rising to the top of it? I don’t know anybody who has that.”

Despite Elizabeth Warren’s statement that she isn’t running for President (technically true), the media is making the case for her.

The latest is Aaron Blake at WaPo’s The Fix, Why Elizabeth Warren is perfectly positioned for 2016 (if she wanted to run):

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) says she’s not running for president in 2016, and we believe her — for the most part.

But there is one thing that will keep the pilot light of the Warren for President speculation aflame: the almost-gaping hole in the Democratic primary that seems tailor-made for her.

Look no further than the new Washington Post-ABC News poll for a little glimpse into that void. The poll shows that a huge portion of the Democratic base not only dislikes Wall Street and big business; its voters actually think these institutions are inflicting harm on them personally….

Given this — along with her well-demonstrated fundraising prowess — it’s not difficult to envision Warren becoming instantly relevant in the 2016 presidential race, which is why the questions about whether she’ll eventually run won’t stop anytime soon.

Michael McAulif at HuffPo also makes the case, How Elizabeth Warren’s Own Book Makes The Case She Should Run For President

Elizabeth Warren is adamant that she is not seeking to move up to the White House.

“I am not running for president,” the Massachusetts Democrat told The Huffington Post, as she has told many others. “You can ask that question any way you want, but you’re going to get the same answer.”

That’s not exactly the question HuffPost was asking, though. The question was why readers of her new memoir and political treatise, A Fighting Chance, shouldn’t take from it a very powerful argument for why Warren should run….

Perhaps Warren does not think that climbing onto the high-profile platform of a presidential bid lands in the category of doing “everything I can.” But her book also shows how often in her public career she looked at the lay of the land and said no, or at least hesitated. She often had to be convinced.

The Democratic bureaucracy, which backs Hillary, should want Warren to run. If Hillary is anointed, Democrats will always wonder, “What if?”

Of course she intends to run for president. After all, she got a ghost writer to write a book for her which in this day and age is the first thing a politician does when aspiring to the presidency.

But as of right now, Warren is just another Hillary in that she can point to nothing honestly and positively achieved. It’s another case of “what has she done”?

Obscenely funny.

Bwaney Fwank…one of the two men directly responsible for the collapse of the American economy…wants to see Princess Running Bare run for President.

And Ed Shultz, idiot delux, actually believes she’s AGAINST Wall Street.

There is no limit to the stupid of the Collective.

    And, amazingly, the law that’s supposed to “fix the problem” is named after those two charlatans.

    (BTW, I’m in the real estate / mortgage business and I can state from a position of experience, it does no such thing.)

      ONE…and there are MANY…reason the economy is stuck on stupid is because Dodd-Fwank has made capital formation MUCH more difficult and calculating risk almost impossible.

Look at all the diversity in her group in the first picture. I see 2 African Americans and ZERO American Indians!!!!

No, please no. I can’t take another fake who’s locked up their past records.

Not sure anyone outside of New England will vote for Harvard Barbie.

I count over forty post pubescent ingrates and useful idiots raising their fist, not just at their very own constitutional freedom and economic prospect, but ours as well.

Warren looks contented among her brood of viper hatchlings and future tyrants.

Captain Keogh | May 1, 2014 at 3:19 pm

Please run her but we can screw it up if we run a dolt such as Jeb Bush.

Captain Keogh | May 1, 2014 at 3:23 pm

An awful lot of pale faces in that crowd.

    I, too, noted that her tribe of sychophants sure looks pasty. I wonder if they’re all part of the same tribe?

From the “War on Women” to the “Warren America”.

I’m glad we can prove to these happy zombies that their first choice Dave Matthews was born overseas. Fauxcahontas is one lucky squaw.

Sure Warren faked being Native American, to get into Harvard, and she dropped that claim when it no longer served her purpose … BUT … she has several Native American recipes that she stole, and don’t you deniers claim she hasn’t cooked them all at least once. You can’t take THAT suffering from her.

… and while refusing to meet with actual Native Americans, Warren still commiserates with their suffering, via all the assaults on her character from the likes of unnamed bloggers firing shots at her.

And just because her ancestors forced the Native Americans down the trail of tears, rather than actually enduring it, doesn’t mean her ancestral psyche doesn’t share the pain of the incident. THEY WERE THERE. WERE YOU?

and if you’ve never endured the suffering of growing up in a perhaps somewhat high cheekbone lily white family … then just STFU

Run Lizzie Run

Sorry, but if it involves Bahney, I have no desire whatsoever to feel it growing. IYKWIMAITYD. NTTAWWT.

And of course Liz is running. She’ll reliably tell the base what it wants to hear. She’s like Left-Wing Chatty Cathy.

Clearly, a bunch of racists.

She is the progressives darling. Warren paeans appear regularly, most recently in the New York Review of Books. She is the choice of the anti-Clinton Democrats. Get your barf bags ready, you will need them.
