When Elizabeth Warren Attacks

When Elizabeth Warren Attacks

Even Democrats are not immune, as liberals struggle over direction of their party.

http://youtu.be/htX2usfqMEs

With the midterms over, both parties are turning their focus to 2016. Democrats, who were the clear losers on November 4th are struggling over leadership and the direction of their party.

It’s hard to imagine Elizabeth Warren harshly criticizing the Obama administration just a few years ago.

The age of Obama is over.

Peter Schroeder of The Hill:

Democrats assail Wall Street ties in Obama administration

President Obama’s nomination of Antonio Weiss to serve as the Treasury Department’s top domestic finance official is drawing fire from an unusual sector: his fellow Democrats.

Liberal lawmakers like Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) have been quick to oppose Weiss, a major investment banker with Lazard.

Among their grievances is the fact that Lazard’s work is primarily in international finance and he is nominated for a domestic position. They’re also critical of his role in structuring several tax inversion deals, which have drawn criticism from the president himself.

But an underlying thread to the Democratic opposition is a fatigue with filling top-ranking administration spots with officials that have spent significant time working for or on behalf of Wall Street titans. Warren penned an op-ed in The Huffington Post criticizing the administration’s approach under the headline “Enough is Enough.”

The discord isn’t limited to the Warren wing of the party. There’s plenty of scorn to go around.

Dana Milbank of the Washington Post:

The Democrats’ family feud is counterproductive

With Democrats acting like this, who needs Republicans?

Chuck Schumer, the No. 3 Senate Democratic leader who would very much like to be No. 1, caused a furor this week when he gave a speech at the National Press Club bashing fellow Democrats and the White House. He said that Democrats focused on the “wrong problem” when they passed Obamacare and that the way they handled stimulus legislation was a “mistake.”

As if by way of reply, the White House announced the same day that it would veto a $440 billion tax bill the Senate Democratic leadership had negotiated with Republicans. Meanwhile, former White House officials who serve as surrogate defenders of President Obama went after Schumer on Twitter.

Former Obama aide Tommy Vietor: “Shorter Chuck Schumer — I wish Obama cared more about helping Democrats than sick people.”

Enjoy the show!

Yeah, we’re going to see a LOT more of this. The Barracula brand is dead, stinking, in a sealed plastic bag that just burst.

Deemocrats are going to be denouncing the last six years like sixty, trying to put some distance between them and the putrefaction we’ve been talking about since BEFORE Pres. ScamWOW took office.

And I LOVE it. LOVE IT.

Since, of course, people like Princess Running Bare will be lying though her false teeth.

    As obama continues with his unilateral flaming liberal executive orders it will be of some comic relief to watch these flaming liberals cope.

    GASP!

    Lizzie “Borden” Warren’s actions – and her very photo -violate the Obama “Suppress Internet Free Speech” rules.

    Lizzie get thee to the nearest Federal Pen!

I’m enthusiastically with’ya, Rags!! Aaaahhhhhhhhh…The sights and smells and shrill vocals of Democrat appetites for continuing exec. power will be, well, a beautiful little pinheaded civil war, I’m hoping. Princess ‘How’ Warren and the Hideous Hillary barrage going at it… C’mon, Bernie…More radical, the better, Dude!! Rip your mendacious flesh asunder, Lib-Left Bloviators!!

Notice Liawatha Warren showing a classic phoney baloney boxing stance, dukes up ready to strike.

Very reminiscence of Obama’s swinging arms stance while he semi-runs to the podium or going down the stairs of AirForce One; equally phoney baloney, person in a hurry; but not athletic by any means.

2016 is going to be one phoney stance and position by the Progressive Socialist candidates after another.

Go ahead Lizzie, you toughie you, PLEASE hit something with that “fist” you love to make. Please, please, please hit something as hard as you can. Your hand and spindly wrist would snap in a heart beat.

I always get a kick out of it when people try to act/look tough by making a “fist” but instead reveal themselves to have zero fighting skills whatsoever.

    Geeez… Haven’t you ever seen a cowboy movie?

    Indians can’t box. If you punch them, they get all confused and teary.

    It’s congenital… Get up off Princess Running Bare. She’s trying to be culturally diverse.

She really is an ass. The rest of the nation will see that. The massive dislike for the likes of President Ebola has ensured that Fauxchaontas will be about as attractive to electorate as Hillary Clinton, even without the fat ankles.

Fauxcahontas will be nothing but a bad memory after 2016.

Run, Elizabeth, run! You too, Bernie. And you, Governor Moonbeam. You can decide amongst yourselves who will take the Green nomination.

“Put ‘Em Up or Shut Me Up,” “Ain’t I Too Enough” and “My Game Has Been Rigged from the Start” – these could be chapter titles for an unauthorized Liz pre-presidential run bio. The book could be titled “Dreams from My Pipe-The Audacity of Toke.”

    If I just stole the colorful language used by commenters on this blog, I could be mistaken for a successful and brilliant pundit. Nice book title, deserving at least a tinfoil origami for your desk.

The somnambulant, supine press has spent most of its adult life promoting and cheering all things Democrat / Liberal / Progressive. Now, as that triumvirate implodes, the press cannot stop itself or change course quickly, so a lot of this is going to be reported.

The press never did learn how to talk to Republicans, much less Conservatives. With their gods tumbling, the press has no narrative to switch to.

    Just an FYI- My second car was a 1966 Chevelle ss396, blue with black interior. Probably my favorite car of all time. Sold in 1972, for $600

It’s easy to understand the Democrats’ reluctance to have anyone who knows finance working in a key finance position. The President came in with no substantive skills had to learn on the job, and so should everyone else.

Obama & Co. have killed the popularity of liberal policies – by enacting them. The only ‘stars’ in the Democrat Party are Obama-style liberals, though you wouldn’t know it with the growing number who are jumping ship as it sinks. So, in 2016, the Dems at the moment have only candidates who can be easily tied to Obama and his policies by revealing their voting records and recent sound bites in full support of Obama. They need but haven’t any true Not Obama candidates. They have a small handful of red state pols pretending to be otherwise. But no centrists in a position to run.
