Elizabeth Warren finally admits she’s focused on 2020 presidential run

Warren: “After Nov. 6, I will take a hard look at running for president . . . . I think we can turn this country around”

Okay, I have to admit that I am totally proud of the prof right now. Though I never really doubted his premise, his insistence, that Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was intent on running for president in 2020, I did have doubts about how she could possibly believe she could pull it off.

Indeed, “we repeatedly have noted that Warren’s non-denial denials about running for president were inconsistent with her actions, which certainly seem to be laying the groundwork for a presidential run”:

Warren’s background is laden with problems, questions, and scandal. But here she is, making it pseudo-official that she is, indeed, looking to compete for the 2020 Democrat nomination. By the way, it’s only pseudo-official because an actual declaration of candidacy would place her campaign under federal regulation and scrutiny, a thing—oddly, perhaps—this proponent of federal regulation and scrutiny should welcome on principle but apparently does not when it comes to herself and her endeavors.

The New York Times reports:

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts declared on Saturday that she would “take a hard look” at running for the White House in 2020 once the midterm elections are over, and called on the country to elect a female president to fix the “broken government” in Washington.

Ms. Warren made the announcement during a town-hall meeting in Holyoke, Mass., where she was decrying President Trump and Senate Republicans for digging in behind Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, the embattled Supreme Court nominee who has been accused of sexual assault. She described the hearings as a spectacle of “powerful men helping a powerful man make it to an even more powerful position.”

“I watched that and I thought: time’s up,” Ms. Warren said, according to a transcript and video of her remarks provided by an aide. “It’s time for women to go to Washington and fix our broken government, and that includes a woman at the top.”

She continued, “So here’s what I promise: After Nov. 6, I will take a hard look at running for president.”

“I think we can turn this country around,” Ms. Warren said.

The comments are Ms. Warren’s clearest and most public confirmation yet that she is preparing to seek the presidency. She has been traveling the country extensively in recent months and has already been reaching out to Democratic leaders in crucial presidential primary states, leaving little doubt about her interest in the race.

Warren is 69, so she can’t sit out too many more election cycles.  She only sat out the last one, in 2016, in deference to (or, alternately, in fear of) Hillary Clinton or to her desire to remain in the public eye as an in-speculation-only contender or whatever nonsense.  That’s all laughable.  She didn’t run because, as the invisible wannabe shadow to both Hillary and Bernie, she had no backing, no clout, no donors.

That’s all changed since Hillary’s second humiliating presidential campaign loss.

Given that Warren’s message is a hokey mix of socialist policies with which she doesn’t even agree and countless variations on “I hate Trump,” it seems unlikely she’ll get very far.  Essentially, when she’s not parroting Bernie, she’s parroting Hillary.  Nothing says “winner” like trotting out the money quotes of failed Democrat presidential candidates.

As an aside, there is no way Warren thinks single-payer or Medicare for all are viable; as much as I dislike her, I have to admit that she’s no idiot in these matters.  Further, it should be noted that Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) himself doesn’t even think Medicare for all is viable.  He’s just smart enough to ignore that inconvenient reality; Warren, by contrast, will babble on for days, annoying and confusing the Democrat base and annoying and amusing the Republican base.

One of Warren’s campaign strategies appears to be bashing President Trump . . . maybe because it worked so well for Hillary?

Senator Elizabeth Warren isn’t ready to announce a presidential bid just yet, but she could be soon. Per the Boston Globe, the Massachusetts Democrat told a town hall crowd that she’s now focused on her re-election bid, but bets are off thereafter. “After Nov. 6 I will take a hard look at running for president,” Warren said after railing against Republican colleagues she characterized as “powerful men helping a powerful man make it to an even more powerful position” who were “too chicken” to personally question Christine Blasey Ford during her testimony regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

As she does frequently, Warren took this opportunity of her 36th meeting with constituents since President Trump took office to attack the current White House occupant, per the AP.

“Trump is taking this country in the wrong direction,” said Warren, who also tipped her hat to the #TimesUp movement and said the time is now “for women to go to Washington to fix our broken government, and that includes a woman at the top.”

So it’s not “official-official,” but it looks not only as though Warren does indeed intend to run in 2020 but that she has been running for quite some time.

The prof so nailed this one.

“I think we can turn this country around,” Ms. Warren said.

yup that is a winning strategy. Let’s turn around the economic prosperity – that will win the election for you.

I think Senator Warren is the transgender reincarnation of 20th century progressive Benito Mussolini.

You know how, right after you get the carpets cleaned, the dog decides to drag itself, in a particular way, across the freshly cleaned rug? Elizabeth Warren. Like a dog with worms, scootching across the American landscape.

This will be almost as much fun as Hillary, and “how”

declared on Saturday that she would “take a hard look” at running for the White House

Translation—she sees a historically weak field of D’rat contenders, and figures there’s a niche where a candidate with an even slimmer resume than O’Bama’s might squeeze in . . . but has yet to hear any encouraging noises from big money backers.

Note to Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA): Maybe you can withstand going around in circles, but this nation can only stand so much of being “turned around,” especially in the direction you would have it go. As a man, don’t appreciate your sexist concept of what sort of leadership we need.

In the above photo, does Liz have but three fingers on each hand?

Will she be called “Madam President” or “Big Chief Full of S**T”?

I don’t think so. No White TeePee.

Running hard to become the utterly miserable, worthless and embittered Harridan-Shrew-Termagant-Scold-in-Chief.

Chief Dropping Bull will never win, wearing eyeglasses. She needs to switch to contact lenses, or, to Christine Ford-style stage prop “turtle”-style eyeglasses to convey “full-crazy.”

Kaw-Liga was a wooden Indian standin’ by the door
He fell in love with an Indian maiden over in the antique store
Kaw-Liga just stood there and never let it show
So she could never answer yes or no

He always wore his Sunday feathers and held a tomahawk
The maiden wore her beads and braids and hoped someday he’d talk
Kaw-Liga too stubborn to ever show a sign
Because his heart was made of knotty pine

Poor ol’ Kaw-Liga, he never got a kiss
Poor ol’ Kaw-Liga, he don’t know what he missed
Is it any wonder that his face is red?
Kaw-Liga that poor ol’ wooden head

Kaw-Liga was a lonely Indian never went nowhere
His heart was set on the Indian maiden with the coal black hair
Kaw-Liga just stood there and never let it show
So she could never answer yes or no

And then one day a wealthy customer bought the Indian maid
And took her oh so far away but ol’ Kaw-Liga stayed
Kaw-Liga just stands there as lonely as can be
And wishes he was still an old pine tree

Poor ol’ Kaw-Liga, he never got a kiss
Poor ol’ Kaw-Liga, he don’t know what he missed
Is it any wonder that his face is red?
Kaw-Liga that poor ol’ wooden head

As in reverse? Why would we want to go backwards? The Obama years were the worst 8 years of my life. Worse than Nixon, LBJ, Carter, Clinton. You are a witch and we don’t need you.

The most dangerous Democrat 2020 would be a heartland socialist (Like what you would get if you merged Hillary’s politics with Bill’s talents). Not sure if there are any such Democrats out there

Can you imagine this fraud as Commander In Chief of our military? Can you imagine being a 25 year veteran Green Beret Msg and having to salute this POS and take orders from her?

Which tribe?

This is a joke, right?

Where can I send her a (small) donation to encourage her?

I think that many women do not understand how to project strength – without coming across as a bitch and a shrew. That was certainly Hillary’s problem. And it was the reason that I said early on that she would not win any Presidential Election. Ever. No man who has lived with or around a shrew would willingly, voluntarily, subject himself to it again. Meredith Brooks got it wrong in her song “Bitch,” https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_ivt_N2Zcts. Hysterically screaming doesn’t win debates. Mama always said “You get more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.” Elizabeth Warren, through her speeches, also falls into this category. Even the picture at the beginning of this article shows her in “the fighting Irish” stance (I guess she wants to beat some sense into the great unwashed deplorables). So I don’t see her getting far in any Presidential contest either. She can’t pull it off.

While it is necessary to project strength, the “Gold Standard” for this is and always will be Lady Margaret Thatcher. It is not done screaming at the top of ones lungs. Instead it is calmly, passionately stated, projecting one’s voice, correctly choosing words that state the situation with imperative. A modern day example of this was Carly Fiorina’s empassioned response in the Republican debates on The (undercover) Planned Parenthood Abortion films. She was passionate. She projected Moral Authority. And without yelling and screaming, she stole the show with these remarks: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2p_CyDI87Rc#

She’s going to practice her Hitler-esque arm movements for her speeches and rallies.

Those little fists have me shakin’ in me boots … NOT!
