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".

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.

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.

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.

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!"

THIS. If they'll still identify themselves as Republican, then they're either stark raving mad, or they have no spine. Neither gets my vote.

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.

[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.

bugontherug: 3_Butt_Cheeks: Lynda Smith, the amateur genealogist who unknowingly found herself at the root of the false "Elizabeth Warren is 1/32 Cherokee" meme introduced to the media by "noted" genealogist Chris Child of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, acknowledged in an email to me this past Saturday, May 12, that her statement in a March 2006 family newsletter upon which Mr. Child based his claim of Ms. Warren's Cherokee ancestry was made with no supporting documentation. It was, in fact, an honest mistake that Ms. Smith now acknowledges is entirely without foundation.

It's almost like you didn't source this quote for a reason:

Yea, townhall is lying too. It's all a big scary fabrication. Because you know, to simply admit you made a mistake would be unthinkable.

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.

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?
