Getting Elizabeth Warren to Yes: “This is a moment”
when the world “will even back out”
What will it take to get Elizabeth Warren to run for President?
Hillary deciding not to run — Warren jumps in to a certainty, in my opinion.
Hillary running — it will take a cause greater than herself to get Warren to run. A cause of historic proportions. A saving of the planet magnitude justification.
While Warren still is scoffing at the idea of running, she is laying the groundwork for a planet-saving justification based on concentration of wealth and power. Guess who epitomizes concentration of wealth and power? (Hint, starts with an “H”)
Allahpundit points to this HuffPo clip as evidence Elizabeth Warren is not dismissing out of hand possibly running for President, despite prior denials.
This is a moment in time for our country and, I believe, for our world, a moment in time where we decide who we are as a people and what kind of a future we’re going to build.
The reader who alerted me to the video writes:
She’s crazy enough to run and sadly, the American voters might be crazy enough to vote her into the office! This makes me sick.
“This is a moment” has a familiar ring to it.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
I expect the Democrats to do in their 2016 primary what they did to their 2008 primary.
They’ll have Hillary winning the most delegates to the convention, but then they’ll “steal” them for Warren – forcing Hillary to quit.
Warren might possibly beat her, or cheat her, but not the way Obama did.
Hillary’s people were so sure going into late 2007 that they were “inevitable,” they made the strategic decision not to spend resources organizing in the “dark red” states which they had no hope of winning in the general (except for Texas).
Most of those states had caucuses which awarded delegates according to support. With no organization, Hillary won very few of those delegates, Obama swept many caucuses almost by default. When the race turned out to be close, those neglected states made the difference, giving Obama the most “elected” delegates. This was used to pressure the “Super Delegates” not to “thwart the will of the people” – even though their whole purpose was to do just that where needed.
Hillary may lose, but it won’t be due to just giving away delegates this time.
I literally cannot comprehend how much liberals love the lying, pandering POS that is Elizabeth Warren.
Taking Elizabeth Warren out of Massachusetts is like taking an orchid out of the greenhouse in January…in North Dakota.
She sings their song:
The Rich are the bad guys because they are rich, and we can solve all our problems by taxing them more. Corporations are considered rich, too.
Second verse, same as the first!
Government is good, business is bad, people are only successful by luck and/or privilege.
If you don’t think this nonsense has wide appeal, you haven’t been monitoring our public schools and colleges over the last few decades. That is what most of our children are being taught every day.
I’d like to see her win the nomination.
She has no “juice”…none of the charisma that a candidate for President needs.
She is also so far left, she will be a strong turn-off for conservatives and libertarians…and that is a majority of voters in this country. Collectivists are a minority.
Plus, she’s a nudge.
Your optimism is uplifting. I have little of that here in California, where I just cast my meaningless vote.
One must live in hope…
While meeting reality head on.
I agree 100% with the reader who said America may be crazy enough to vote Warren into office.
I look at how successful the Democrat Party, media, and academia have been in moving the country leftward. When socialist Bernie Sanders created the Progressive Caucus in 1991, he had only 6 like minded socialists join him. That caucus is now the largest and has about 80 elected Democrats as members.
Go back even further to the early 1980s when I was in college. Reagan was president; Milton Friedman with his free market ideology was a global economic hero; and in my opinion one of the best books ever written making the moral and ethical case for free markets, George Guilder’s “Wealth and Poverty”, was on the NYT bestseller list for years.
Now we have a left wing ideologue as president; Keynesianism from the dead with Paul Krugman pushing it; and Thomas Piketty’s ode to neo-Marxism is on the New York Times bestseller list.
People who think Warren is unelectable are making a grave error, IMO. After all, when conservatism was on the rise 35 years ago, Democrats were salivating at the idea that Reagan would be the Republican nominee in 1980. Democrats WANTED Reagan to be the nominee because they believed he was too “extreme” to win. Of course, he won the electoral college vote in a landslide. And he did so by crushing an incumbent president, a feat practically unheard of.
She should be easy enough to defeat but never underestimate the ability of The Stupid Party to blow easy elections.
Heh! Hillary with a suspected concussion from her fall. Warren is nominated for President, making her the first Native American to run for office.
I bate my breath with the idiocy of the Dems.
Why doesn’t she just flip a coin? She could use a 1/32nd Indian Head Penny.
