Elizabeth Warren now “just like West Virginians”
How in the world will injecting Warren into the West Virginia Senate race possibly help Democrats?
I did a double take when I saw this headline, Meet the anti-Elizabeth Warren.
Then I saw the image and realized it was the “anti-Elizabeth Warren” in the sense of a female politician who is the opposite of Warren.
From the story:
Rep. Shelley Moore Capito’s friends and colleagues in Washington are so certain she’s headed for a promotion this year, they’re already addressing her as “senator.”
Capito looks poised for a swift victory in the West Virginia Senate race this fall, thanks in no small part to overwhelming support from the business and banking sectors. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has spent $200,000 on ads supporting Capito. From her position on the House Financial Services Committee, the seventh-term congresswoman has vacuumed up money from the banking industry. She even received a check from Citigroup CEO Michael Corbat.
Now, Democrats are hoping to cast Capito’s close ties to the industry as a political weak spot by portraying the congresswoman as a tool of Wall Street. On Monday, they amped up this strategy by bringing the populist Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren to West Virginia to campaign for Democratic Senate nominee Natalie Tennant….
Democrats, who recognize Capito has a solid advantage in the race, are hoping voters balk at Capito’s Wall Street ties. Using Warren as a surrogate for this message comes with some political risks — Democrats are gambling that Warren’s anti-Wall Street message will resonate with West Virginia voters and that her liberal policy positions, such as on coal, won’t be be a distraction.
The NRSC thinks tying Democrat Natalie Tennant to Warren is just what they are looking for, and Tennant is providing the material:
By the way, Elizabeth Warren didn’t grow up poor. She grew up in a solidly middle class edging towards upper middle class family.
Rising out of poverty is another one of Elizabeth Warren’s myths.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Is Lizzie doing her Hillary imitation of
“When I was a dead-broke stock market capitalist?”
Where are Lizzie Warren’s required disclosure of her financial investments.
Bet she’s got invested in Wall Street and you and I’ll ever have!
Her playing Dead-Broke Hillary’s Little Sister is just part of her “SCHTICK!”
“than! you and I’ll ever have!”
“Bet she’s got MORE invested in Wall Street than you and I’ll ever have!” I meant.
Don’t you just hate it when your keyboard develops a mind of its own?
We got your meaning the first time….and the second time ;), but we all always make the corrections anyway because we can’t stand the glaring error. Having standards of self expectation is one of many hallmarks of conservative values. 🙂
Destroying Wall Street might have a noticeable impact on many union pension funds but, faces don’t really need noses all that much.
“By the way, Elizabeth Warren didn’t grow up poor. She grew up on a solidly middle class edging towards upper middle class family.”
You are wrong! She grew up in a teepee!
…and had to run down those Oklahoma land crabs in her bare feets, just to make a tiny batch of her grannie’s famous mayonnaise and crab dip.
la la la…..
“Then one day she was shootin some land crab food,
And up through the ground came a bubblin crude.
Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.
Well the first thing you know ol Lizzie’s a millionaire,
Kinfolk said “Lizzie move away from there”
Said “Massachusetts is the place you ought to be”
So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beacon Hill-ary!
Hills, that is. Kennedys, politician movie stars.
Truth is, Princess Running Bare is as nippled up to the Wall Street crony network as anybody in DC.
Her daughter…who she portrayed as a “small business entrepreneur”…was just the opposite. She…with the help of Boston Brahman venture capitalists…ginned up a “health care related” business in Mass. This was sold a few years later for a VERY tidy profit.
She’s just another Collectivist liar.
Elizabeth Warren Earns $429,000, Worth Millions
“.. according to the Personal Financial Disclosure form she filed to run for Senate shows that she’s worth as much as $14.5 million. She earned more than $429,000 from Harvard last year alone for a total of about $700,000, and lives in a house worth $5 million”
2011 disclosure form
Should warren get the ‘rat nomination and advance her ‘grew up poor and still am’ meme, one can pray, probably fruitlessly, that the ‘pubs seize on that document and trumpet it daily as proof of her scam.
If I was a West Virginian and a pol was claiming poverty as a means of a common-ground appeal, I would be insulted – not just for being lied to, but by the implication that I, too, am poor and/or unsuccessful/uneducated.
There’s no way either Hillary or Warren would carry WV in the general election, so we’re merely looking at the ‘rat primary there. If the ‘rats there were to choose Warren, assuming for the moment she’s going to run, it would say much about the general election in that it will disclose that even semi-conservative ‘rats learned nothing from obamullah’s chicanery, failures and intentions, and are still advocating full-on socialism.
She grew up poor just like Pete Seeger grew up poor. And Tom Hayden, and Jane Fonda, and Bill Ayers, and Barack Obama.
E Warren made a fortune in OKLA buying foreclosed houses. So she is one of the people the left loves to hate– taking advantage of people in distress.
…and “researchers” at the “Clinton Foundation” probably have copies of every real estate document she signed, as well as evidence of her other misdeeds, all wrapped and waiting to be played against Warren if she challenges Hitlery.
In fact, I’m sure that Clinton’s flying-monkeys are continuing to mine sites like Legal Insurrection for dirt to use against Warren, should she decide to run. Of course, as fellow Democrats, they’ll give her a chance to save face. Warren is a reliable vote in Congress. They will give her copy of the dossier compiled on her, so she can be convinced to say she “needs to stay in the Senate and battle for the little people of Massachusetts and America…”
Not many people have the guts for a down and dirty bout of internecine warfare, especially against two Clintons. That 0bama took a chance and played the race card against Bill in 2008 proves how effective they are.
Warren is an idiot, but she is isn’t stupid. If nothing else, she’s currying favor for a job in the Clinton III. I mean, Clinton herself and Kerry have lowered the bar so low that Warren, or even Larry the Cable Guy, can now be Secretary of State. Ditto for AG.
I tend to agree. Senator Warren is probably trying for the AG job, but she’s got a problem. Secretary Clinton will become President because Wall Street is solidly behind her. President Hillary Clinton is not going to allow AG Warren to go after her friends and benefactors.
Why not? The Democrats rely on the media letting them get away with gross distortions of both who they are and what they stand for. After all, Kay Hagen was successfully sold as being a regular North Carolina wife, mother and small business person. This despite Hagen’s father being one of the wealthiest commercial real estate developers in Florida and that her uncle was crony capitalist turned highly partisan US Senator and Florida Governor Lawton Chiles. Hagen’s first job seems to have been on Capitol Hill, arranged by Uncle Lawton. Other than that, she is just like any other of my neighbors. Besides. She CARES bout all the little people.
If it’s a close race the almost 2,000 native americans voters may be the determining factor…
Do you think those two thousand Native Americans are going to vote for a fake indian?
I would expect it to go the other way.
It probably won’t help Democrats. It might help Elizabeth Warren.
She’s the white, female Obama but with less shame.
I was born and raised in West (by God). My people are West Virginians and I know West Virginians.
Liawatha, you ain’t no West Virginian. Except for some of the no good Democrats in Charleston that do their best to wreck the state.
Even the few West Virginians who have no direct or family economic interest in coal must understand how their state’s economy depends upon it, and how Warren/Obama/EPA are out to shut them down for political power.
Lizzy Warren can sell her “I growed up po’ jis’ like y’all,” bullshit because all northeastern, effete, liberal snobs just assume that we okies is all ‘dis a bunch ‘a dumb ol’ dirt-po’ hicks or ne’er do well Indians, barely off the rez. If Warren had passed her off as what she really is – like “them” – they’d have said, “So what, toots. Now get the eff off my Ivy League turf, before I let the servants loose on you!”
“It’s a story that resonates through West Virginia.”
Yeah, right. Just like the coal miner success story: a miner looking for any job, whether minimum wage or not, not having found one pretends to be an American Indian to rig the system in his favor.
In Lizneyland, moral relativism’s theme park, you can be whatever you what to be. You can be Pocahontas or the persecuted heroine Cinderella born with a sliver slipper in her mouth or a witch who casts spells on Wall St. or a bohemian gypsy girl who uses tarot cards to define banking regulations. You can even be Barack Obama in drag, but I repeat myself.
Just a reminder: Warren is just a stalking horse for Corey Booker, Obama redux. Even Warren herself is being fiddled by fiddler Valerie J.
Can you flesh that out a bit?
Hillary is more interested in hawking her book and exploiting her status as a multi-millionaire exhaler on the speaking circuit than helping Senate Democrats hold onto the Senate. On the other hand, WaPo’s Bob Costa reports that Warren has stumped for Democrats in Kentucky, West Virginia, Oregon, Ohio, Washington and Minnesota. And it’s still early.
Warren is doing everything she can to help Democrats hold the Senate while Hillary is pursuing her own self interests. If any of the candidates Warren is campaigning for win, Warren will have chits to call in if she decides to run for the Democrat nomination. They will owe Clinton nothing.
In some ways, it’s almost as if Warren is repeating what Obama did in 2008. Hillary took the nomination for granted and Obama snuck up from out of nowhere and stole it from her.
But Hitlery can rest on her inconsequential laurels, because she has a secret weapon: Bubba. Yes, when the chips are down, every Democrat can be moved in any direction, any distance, by the persuasive powers of Bill Clinton and his hive of “movers and shakers”. He will get you with charm or “that other way”. Jimmy Carville has a sack of “hunnit dolla’ bills,” and he will drag them through every trailer park from Portland Maine to Portland Oregon to Timbuktu in order to find a lever to use for “that other way”.
So, Lizzy better watch out, because the MSM might suddenly discover that she’s an absolute fraud who bluffed and lied and plagiarized her way through life. (Gasp!)
Hitliary is already a chick and she’s got Bubba going for her. He’s still popular. These next couple years may be the only time in their pseudo-married life that she isn’t wishing Bubba dead, ‘cuz she needs him now. Since Hitliary already has the chick meme going, Liawatha needs a secret weapon like Bubba. She can’t pass for black or Hispanic, she’s obviously not Asian and they’re not a preferred-treatment group anyway. Unless she wants to claim to be some other form of primate (which would only guarantee the PETA vote anyway), there’s nothing left so enter the poor American Indian BS.
Shelley Moore Capito is 1/32nd Mongol.
