It's like she thinks he is a Republican or something.

He's linked to the GOP... That's more than enough for me not to vote for him.

Well that settles it! I am not moving to Massachusetts to vote for her!

Well, he's been trying to link her to Wounded Knee. So I guess it's fair.

Her campaign was always going to hinge on the contrast between herself and Brown, whose vote for the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill was contingent upon weakening the Volcker Rule.

But JPMorgan's risky trade, which violated the spirit of the Volcker Rule, allows her to vividly illustrate the differences between herself and her opponent.


Sorry about your headline, submitter :(

Sorry, I have no intention of supporting anyone with the stink of the GOP on them. I don't give a shiat how "bipartisan" they are. The GOP has proven over and over again that they don't give a shiat about folks like me and my family in the lower middle class and Brown has done nothing to change that perception.

BunkoSquad: I don't want my representatives to be bipartisan if it means working in any way with the current Republican Party.


Exactly. These people aren't "conservatives"... They're radical regressives. The Democrats have pretty much taken over the center right position as the GOP has gone completely off the deep end.

Is Brown the worst? No. He's a typical MA Republican. But I see no reason to encourage the GOP's mean-spirited plutocratic bullshiat by voting for any of their candidates.

If Brown wants to impress me with his "independent" stances, he should run as an Independent and not as a Republican.

Also, I happen to agree with Warren on many issues. I am voting for her, primarily.

FriarReb98: I seriously doubt she's ever going to vote against her party.


While I'm not in the appropriate district to actually vote in this race, this more or less reflects my opinion. The last decade or so has made it fairly clear that strong party loyalists are typically flat-out bad at policy-making and executive office, regardless of which party they're loyal to. Brown has at least some pretensions of bipartisanship, so he's got that going for him. Plus, we already saw this match and know how it turns out.

She didn't even lie, really. She repeated the kind of thing you hear in your family, "we've got some indian blood." She doesn't have paperwork, though, so when people asked she admitted she can't prove it and hasn't brought it up again.

The idea that she think's she's all sorts of Native American is one of the stretchier stretches in politics today.

I initially thought the same, until the whole 'minority Harvard professor" or whatever. If she was just yakking about family stories, that type thing shouldn't have gone to that level.

And Brown needs to trot out his hot daughters more.

I'm the same way, 1/32 Cherokee if I recall correctly. But I'll be damned if I have a document saying so. For that matter, I'd be hard-pressed to prove that I'm 1/4 Scot... or any other ethnic background for that matter.

I'm confused as to why arguments by someone on the left against a republican being clearly bought by the Koch brothers and their ilk are completely baseless, yet the "Obama is a Wall Street puppet!" argument isn't.


The same reason that all arguments advanced by the left on any topic are baseless; they're advanced by the left.

Try this: Elizabeth Brown was screaming for the reforms that would have prevented the Crash years before it happened. She was such a respected expert on this that she was appointed to head the board Congress created to watchdog the TARP program with overwhelming bipartisan support.

She basically created the roadmap for what would become the CFPB in her academic writings well before the crash. That's why she was Obama's first choice to head it.

Between the passage of Dodd-Frank and her formal nomination to be CFPB director the Wall Street interests poured so much money into the GOP that they were bribed into blocking Warren's confirmation. So she's decided that if the Wall-Street interests can bribe Congress to keep her from cleaning them up, she'll ask to voters of MA to Send her to congress so she can clean both up.

That's tempting. But I'd be betting that the voters in Mass aren't total morons - and that's risky. After all, they voted for an alcoholic rapist and murderer for senate for decades, just because he was a Dem from a famous family. I mean, the bar is set pretty low for liberals to win in that state. Maybe Warren could start molesting girl scouts to help improve her image with libby voters there as her October surprise.

On the other hand, there could be a lot of people coming out to vote for RINO Romney, and those same people can fully embrace a guy like Brown.

What do you have in mind for the wager?

"the JP Morgan scandal shows that the game is rigged"

It's not a scandal, it's a trading loss. JP Morgan will still have a profitable quarter, but liberal politicians get mileage about talking about a 2-3 billion dollar number and claiming it's the end of the world. Nonsense.

"big banks broke the economy....families have lost nearly 40% of their net worth that could have been used to put a kid through college"

First off, the big banks disnt singlehandedly break the economy. Also, that 40% number is determined using the peak of the housing bubble as the starting point. If the gains were illusory, as we can see in hindsight, it really isn't a decrease in net worth.

the average shiathead voter might buy this crap, but as a former bank regulator Elizabeth Warren KNOWS otherwise, yet she spews the bullshiat anyway. That means she is lying.

I know all politicians have to spew bullshiat at some point to pick up the average idiots vote, and Brown might be worse, but she's still full of shiat.

That may very well be... I don't know the man personally.

He associates himself with a party that wants to make my family bear the brunt of paying for the avarice and excesses of the wealthy elite in this country while making sure they don't feel the slightest discomfort from "Austerity" measures... And he's voted for the GOP's solutions more often than not. So no matter how nice of a guy he may be, he's part of a party that essentially wants to put my family in a worse financial position. I've voted for Republicans in many elections, particularly at the local level, but after the last three years, never again. I'm not exactly a big fan of Democrats either, but at least they're not actively trying to fark me in order to defend people who don't need defending.

I don't think he defrauded investors nor did he lie. The positions themselves were very fluid and complex and I don't think he knew of the nature of the losses until later.

And it's laughable to suggest he held off on information to increase his pay for 2011. The downside for his future career of intentionally lying would far outstrip any decrease in his pay that possibly would have resulted if he had known about it and disclosed it earlier.

Yeah, I'm sure Dimon is sweating bullets about his future career. It's not like a person could live the rest of their lives in luxury solely off the $23,000,000 he will make this year alone.

MeinRS6: the opposite of charity is justice: MeinRS6: The media can say that it is neck and neck all they want, but it will be just like when Walker rolled over the libby darling in Wisc.

Dunno how it'll turn out in the end but the last two polls had Brown up +2 then Warren up +2, WI polls weren't that close leading up to the special election.

Liberals were calling Wisc "too close to call" on the air the day of the election.

They will do the same thing in this election.

/How big of a point spread did Walker end up winning by?


I won a cool grand on the point shaving scandal.

I would like to see the GOP become the fairly responsible center-right sort of party it used to be. I was pleased to see Brown win two years ago because he seems to be the kind of republican who can be a part of that sort of transformation. He's fairly mainstream (pro-choice etc) and he doesn't go around saying crackpot things to satisfy some bunch of fundies. I realize he's in a pretty liberal state, but that's a start.

I also liked seeing him win because Martha Coakley is a completely morally bankrupt prosecutor who has knowingly kept innocent people in prison in order to advance her political career. She doesn't deserve any job. What were democrats thinking?

She's in the lead for the Democrat nomination for governor now that Patrick isn't running again. So whatever they were thinking, they are still thinking it.

There were some people pondering the unusual nature of the special election might result in high enough turnout to skew traditional polls. IMO, that was a legitimate suspicion whether or not it turned out to be the case. The polls still showed Walker ahead by 3-4 points which is what he won by. Your brushstrokes are way too broad.

Also, your "You don't recall anyone on the air saying that it was 'too close to call'?" query sounds like its conflating final results with at what percentage of the vote counted would the various media outlets call it for Walker. Yes, we heard "to close to call" many times tuesday night but it wasn't predicting a Walker loss. I'm having a hard time believing you don't honestly know the difference.

You don't recall avoiding the question by:
-asking the person asking you for supporting proof, to provide said supporting proof themselves
-pretending that you did provide that proof, and then imagining what their reaction will be

It looks like you have this entire argument wrapped up nicely, and you only had to talk to yourself. I would recommend you continue this method of argumentation offline instead of posting subpar troll posts to the intertubes.

And that doesn't even touch on how what you are arguing about is not even remotely related to the topic of TFA.

And it's laughable to suggest he held off on information to increase his pay for 2011. The downside for his future career of intentionally lying would far outstrip any decrease in his pay that possibly would have resulted if he had known about it and disclosed it earlier.


He likely counted on people buying into the former to hide the latter.

Philip Francis Queeg: Debeo Summa Credo: Philip Francis Queeg: Debeo Summa Credo: Philip Francis Queeg: Debeo Summa Credo: This woman gets worse and worse. I still hope the dems keep the senate, because the GOP is worse, be she's just so full of shiat.

/i know, she's a politician now.

What exactly did she say that's full of shiat in your opinion? Her criticism of Dimon?

"the JP Morgan scandal shows that the game is rigged"

"big banks broke the economy....families have lost nearly 40% of their net worth that could have been used to put a kid through college"

First off, the big banks disnt singlehandedly break the economy. Also, that 40% number is determined using the peak of the housing bubble as the starting point. If the gains were illusory, as we can see in hindsight, it really isn't a decrease in net worth.

the average shiathead voter might buy this crap, but as a former bank regulator Elizabeth Warren KNOWS otherwise, yet she spews the bullshiat anyway. That means she is lying.

I know all politicians have to spew bullshiat at some point to pick up the average idiots vote, and Brown might be worse, but she's still full of shiat.

You don't think that Dimon defrauding investors by lying about the magnitude of the loss for months until proxy voting was complete so that he was retained in his position with a huge compensation package is a scandal?

I don't think he defrauded investors nor did he lie. The positions themselves were very fluid and complex and I don't think he knew of the nature of the losses until later.

And it's laughable to suggest he held off on information to increase his pay for 2011. The downside for his future career of intentionally lying would far outstrip any decrease in his pay that possibly would have resulted if he had known about it and disclosed it earlier.

So the reporters who asked him about the huge losses that he dismissed as a "tempest in a teapot" had better information then he did?

Yeah, I'm sure Dimon is sweating bullets about his future career. It's not like a person could live the rest of their lives in luxury solely off the $23,000,000 he will make this year alone.

Once again you show that it is impossible for your to conceive of the notion that a wealthy person is anything other than noble and honest.


Dude, I dont know what to tell you. Your bias blinds you to facts and logic.

Of course dimon could live off $23 million. He could also have lived off his previous earnings in life even if his bonus this year was reduced to zero. But he wants to continue his career and make more in the future, that's why he wouldnt lie about a loss that would eventually see the light of day anyway. Lying to maximize his bonus this year, at the possible expense of his future career and remuneration, would be so stupid that only a moron would think that preserving his bonus for this year would be a motivation.

Who is that uber-douche on MSNBC? I know that leaves far too many possibilities. Ed shiatz or something. He was still saying that it was anyone's race after his own network called it for Walker. I think there is also some vid of Wolf Blitzer all excited earlier in his broadcast, and then later crestfallen when another lib went down in defeat.

I'm not revealing any state secrets here. All of these vids were posted on Fark the day after the election. There is another compilation of all of the "too close to call" statements while the polls were still open as well. I'm assuming that you are in some kind of massive state of denial on this topic. You do that a lot.

notmtwain: Her campaign was always going to hinge on the contrast between herself and Brown, whose vote for the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill was contingent upon weakening the Volcker Rule.


If she can't restate that argument more plainly, she will lose.


"Wall St. banks get their way with Congress," Warren said. "[N]ow the lobbying just moved out of the daylight to secret negotiations. ... The big banks that broke the economy have not been held accountable. Scott Brown held the financial reforms hostage until they were weakened and then he worked after the laws were passed to weaken them further. That's what people understand."

Y'ever wonder why shiatty managers keep getting hired? Denny Green, Grady Little, Art Howe - they wash out of one managerial job only to land in another the next year.

It's because once you have one of those jobs, others are likely to delude themselves into thinking you've "earned" it. Even if you suck at it, someone thought you were good enough, and even an established .498 manager (Howe) is better than an unknown quantity in their minds.

So Dimon MAY have:
-realized shiat was about to hit the fan,
-covered up news of the loss for as long as he could to make the vote and the cash,
-expect to be fired or let go or "not renewed" or whatever fancy words they use when he's gone next year,
-in the hopes that some other concern (some lesser-known CEO-ship that'll still get him in the 6-7 figure compensation range) will hire him because "he did so well (right up until he didn't)."

I'm not suggesting I know this happened, but in my mind, most businesspeople (especially such established ones) run in such a privileged circle that once they lose one job - unless it's under Straus-Kahnian levels of weird circumstances - they'll have another waiting. How many of Dimon's fellow JPM boardmembers, for example, would hire or recommend him for a spot on some other board on which they serve?

Okay we're getting close to something here. When did MSNBC call it and when did Ed Shultz say it was too close to call?

It amazes me that right-wingers think Warren is such a weak candidate. She's dead even with Brown and that's AFTER having a ton of bad press. The reality is that Brown is a very weak candidate who had the luck of running against an even worse candidate who took the race for granted. His latest campaign ad isn't even about him - it's a radio ad talking about how great the Celtics are... the week after they were eliminated.

What's more is that he's as RINO as it gets -- every time I've sent his office an email about some issue, he's written back vowing to take the position I'm asking him to, which is invariably the liberal position.

He also voted for the filibuster that ensured the Democrats couldn't pass a better health care reform bill, whereas Coakley would surely have helped break it. Scott Brown will always be a key vote for Republicans at critical moments to help defeat progressive reforms.

Don't get me wrong - I don't think he's going to last long in MA. If it wasn't for Cherokee-gate I think he'd be getting completely trounced right now.

Not at all. I actually think he's done a pretty good job. He's more liberal than most of the Blue Dog Democrats are.

Except that like Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, etc., he's only doing what he has to to survive in a liberal state. At critical moments, he will side with Republicans, no matter how far right, to defeat progressive reforms.

Don't get me wrong - I don't think he's going to last long in MA. If it wasn't for Cherokee-gate I think he'd be getting completely trounced right now. Massachusetts is considerably more liberal than Maine. Hell, look at all the leftist positions Mitt Romney supported when he was a politician here.


Has "Cherokee-gate" really gotten traction there? Jeez. What a stupid non-issue.

Not the issue itself - the last poll showed that it didn't change many votes. But it has pretty much taken up all the oxygen in the race such that both campaigns have spent all their time talking about it. She hasn't been able to talk about her actual issues. Her campaign also royally farked it up by changing their response a couple of times, which made her look bad.

Candidate Warren seems more intelligent and more liberal then Senator Brown. I feel she would be a good representation for the State of Massachusetts.

I'm a Hoosier though, so what do I know about East Coast politics. Some of the time I feel like I'm watching the East Coast states through binoculars, constantly going, "Nope. fark that. Those people look crazy."

The weird part is, she's probably more likely to vote against her party than the average Republican would (and yeah, I'll acknowledge that Scott Brown isn't an average Republican).

But the real distinction between Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren is that he's for deregulation and she's for regulation. That's basically what's funding his campaign, the banks are funding him because they don't want further banking regulation.

[Citation Please]


what do you have a problem with exactly?

you agree that there is no way in hell anyone ever mistook Warren for a woman of color, right?
never in her entire life.
you agree that she never had to go through life treated as a woman of color? right?

she was able to go to the university of houston in 1966, a still deeply racist institution, who didn't even let blacks play sports until 1964. if she was an actual woman of color she would have had to choose between going to historically black colleges or catching incredible flack for the color of her skin at the major southern institutions at that time.

this biatch Warren grew up watching other women actually face incredibly significant and life altering discrimination against because of the color of her skin. then she used a family story to claim a minority experience. she again victimized women that were actually f*cked over for the color of her skin.

what, you believe her when she claimed she only began claiming that dubious *ethnicity* out of a desire to meet women like herself?
Warren: "I listed myself in the directory in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group something that might happen with people who are like I am."

and who the f*ck were the see women she wanted to meet?

women who grew up white, looked white, were white, and enjoyed all the advantages of being white (including preferential treatment for being white at a southern university in 1966) for 36 years but claimed minority status for the first time in the mid 1980's because it offered more opportunity?

really? that's who she wanted to meet? or she wanted to meet a *fellow* indian? there were no f*cking women of color there. she was the *first* god damn woman of color at Harvard!
she couldn't meet anyone at harvard who was a woman of color like her. she couldn't even meet frauds like her. she was the first!

the motivation for HER LIE is blinding obvious; anyone who believes her nonsense about wanting to meet women like herself who were 1/39 high cheek bones so they could go to lunch together is raging moron or so blinded by their ideology she can't see straight.

this woman who basically grew up in a time of racial hatred that us gen xers can't even imagine, watching real women of color get beat down for their ethnicity, chose to pretend she had a minority experience to get ahead in her career.

she's f*cking despicable.

Yes, probably so.

Because you know, to simply admit you made a mistake would be unthinkable.

No, see, unlike conservative publications like Breitbart, Townhall, Etc., progressive publications like the Boston Globe have the integrity to admit and correct themselves when they've made an error. This is so because conservatives, generally, lack integrity, while progressives possess integrity. Likewise, if I had made an error, I would admit it.

Here, I've made no error. You've presented something written by a far right ideologue, that doesn't appear to have been published anywhere outside the right-wing echo machine. It has no credibility. The report by the respected publication stands, even with its inconsequential correction.


Oh, and the Globe "source" you both are still championing? Link

I'm in my early 30's, and as it stands now, I'll probably never vote Republican again based off of what that party has done the past 10 years. Even if they swing back to sanity, there has to be a price for this kind of extremism and the damage they've done by virtually shutting down our system of government.

Warren's problem isn't only that she's a lying coont about the whole Fauxcahontas thing. She was polling crappy even before that. And Warren's reputation for dishonesty wouldn't discourage liberals from voting for her anyway. Dishonesty is fine, as long as you are a liberal and you mean well.

There are people on this thread that actually believe that she's going to "clean up congress" and "fix the banks". She's just another libby douche that wants to raise taxes, increase spending, and increase the power of the gov't. So try to not get too excited about her, especially since she isn't going to win.

As opposed to Republicans who cut taxes (because that ALWAYS works), increase spending (and not where it NEEDS to be spent, such as on infrastructure), and increase the power of the government.

Hard knock life indeed, just singing her bio.

My father married a pure Cherokee
My mother's people were ashamed of me
The indians said I was white by law
The White Man always called me "Indian Squaw"

CHORUS:
Half-breed, that's all I ever heard
Half-breed, how I learned to hate the word
Half-breed, she's no good they warned
Both sides were against me since the day I was born

We never settled, went from town to town
When you're not welcome you don't hang around
The other children always laughed at me
"Give her a feather, she's a Cherokee"

Repeat Chorus

We weren't accepted and I felt ashamed
Nineteen I left them, tell me who's to blame
My life since then has been from man to man
But it can't run away from what I am

He meant an official Republican document. It's the only kind he recognizes.

Thanks for the link. I guess I'll view the issue as unsettled. Incomplete or lost documentation, nearly unforgivable today, wasn't uncommon then. Either way, it's irrelevant.

I agree it's irrelevant. From the somewhat humorous exchange from some fellow farkers (that's being generous) it's clear some folks just couldn't let it go however.

I for one look forward to the whole election cycle being over with.

Why would that require me to change my mind? No one has asked me to do it yet.

The conversation on a wager was cut short by the mods for a reason unknown to me. I'm not certain about the rule of discussing deleted posts either. I've seen it done before and usually those posts get deleted as well. So don't post whatever that guy did.

In what way has Warren been hypocritical, and how do you figure she's an "idiot"?

bugontherug: He also voted for the filibuster that ensured the Democrats couldn't pass a better health care reform bill, whereas Coakley would surely have helped break it. Scott Brown will always be a key vote for Republicans at critical moments to help defeat progressive reforms.

That's a little bit revisionist. By the time he made it to D.C., the only choices left on healthcare legislation were all uniformly bad. Whatever they put through was going to include zero cost controls (bad), permanently tie people to the employer paid model (really bad), and come with a mandate (idiotic).

Reform was ruined before he showed up.

If you're related to the FFVs, I think you're 1/32d Native American by default, since they're all related to Pocahontas somehow.

That won't help Liz Warren, I think, but maybe she can marry into it.

Debeo Summa Credo:

Well, most of us can. The bigots and racist crawled from their pits after we elected a black Governor and black President.

Wait, I dont get it. You are saying that Massachusetts elected a black governor and voted for a black president, but he fact that they voted for a GOP white guy over a Dem white woman (who ran a terrible campaign) 2 years later means they are racist?


No, what he's saying is that the closet racists in Mass decided that after a black governor and a black president were elected they could let their freak flags fly. All that vitriol under the surface came bubbling out, like pus from beneath the scab of an infected boil.

Has nothing to do with the last election, and everything to do with the last election. For some republicans, every vote against anything related to the Democrats or their party or their platform or any word with the letter "D" in it is a vote against the current president - even if it's for town dog catcher. In essence, it wasn't really about Coakley - the rough riding republican race rangers came out to vote against Obama. Coakley was just an innocent bystander who got trampled under thousands of Derpy Hooves.

The point, you missed it.

It's not baseless. Obama's lack of action in bringing to justice the perpetrators of our economic meltdown is very troubling.

The problem is that this one substantial criticism is drowning under the arguments of his opponents and detractors that Obama is an anti-capitalist. It's hard to take republican butthurt seriously when their argument is "Obama is a Wall Street puppet AND a market-hating socialist!"

FarkedOver: 3_Butt_Cheeks: what_now: HEY GUYS I HAVE NOTHING AT ALL TO RUN WITH, SO I'M GOING TO MAKE INDIAN NOISES!!!!

I'm not from Mass thankfully, but I can't say I've heard much about either one being all that bad except she lied about shiat and he has hot kids and drives a truck.

The only people that care about that are the blowhards on 96.9 WTTK and their angry callers. Howie Carr probably cares, but I stay away from that jackass.


Looks like Clear Channel will double down on the derp by buying and blowing up a long-time alternative rock station. Rumor has it they will simulcast or move the former "Rush Radio" (former because the ratings were abysmal so it screamed to be renamed anything but "Rush Radio) to FM. Meanwhile, the only local prog-talk has dumped the three highest profile talkers (Miller, Hartman & Schultz) in favor of near non-stop Jeff Santos. *barf*

Yes, Brown has kept to his word that he won't be a rubber-stamp, so he will have that going for him. But this time he won't be going against someone who thought the seat was hers without doing any work. When I went to vote all I saw were Brown signs, not ONE for Coakley, though Brown was my State Senator at the time. If I had any doubts in my mind, that ended them.
 
2012-06-14 08:26:47 AM  

bugontherug: Botkin of the Yard: I would like to see the GOP become the fairly responsible center-right sort of party it used to be. I was pleased to see Brown win two years ago because he seems to be the kind of republican who can be a part of that sort of transformation. He's fairly mainstream (pro-choice etc) and he doesn't go around saying crackpot things to satisfy some bunch of fundies. I realize he's in a pretty liberal state, but that's a start.


He also voted for the filibuster that ensured the Democrats couldn't pass a better health care reform bill, whereas Coakley would surely have helped break it. Scott Brown will always be a key vote for Republicans at critical moments to help defeat progressive reforms.


If Coakely had gotten elected, Lieberman (I-Aetna) would have continued to stall the reform bill. Electing Brown finally got the Democrats to realize the only way they were passing something was through reconciliation. Shutting Lieberman up was a bonus.

This is why Democrats hate Romney so much. They have become completely dependent on smearing their opponents as racist when they know that they have lost the argument. As long as Romney doesn't overplay his hand (which he might do), his Mormon Card cancels but does not trump Obama's Race Card.

/only the Retard Card and the Trans-sexual Card have been shown to trump the Race Card

FriarReb98: keylock71: FriarReb98: keylock71: He's linked to the GOP... That's more than enough for me not to vote for him.

Go Liz!

She's a book-smarts academic, and I seriously doubt she's ever going to be as bipartisan as Brown. Strike that, I seriously doubt she's ever going to vote against her party. I'm not voting for her.

Sorry, I have no intention of supporting anyone with the stink of the GOP on them. I don't give a shiat how "bipartisan" they are. The GOP has proven over and over again that they don't give a shiat about folks like me and my family in the lower middle class and Brown has done nothing to change that perception.

I'm not voting for him.

I'll happily vote for the "book-smart academic".

Voting for or against letters next to names is never going to get us out of this.


How about voting for eloquent intelligence with a dash of ethics and against I-Drive-A-Truck?

Oh. You wanna belittle her as being educated. OH! You think that will work!
