Elizabeth Warren Pres. Candidacy.....


Recommended Posts

So let's recap what happened when Sen. Elizabeth Warren starts leading the pack:

- Billionaires freaked out

- Wall Street freaked out

- Big Tech freaked out

- Deval Patrick joins race

- Mike Bloomberg joins race

- Assholes like Donny Deutsch call her "unlikable"

(& Obama thinks it's a neg. critique of his legacy)

America's oligarchs are actively trying to shut down the Warren campaign.

This is why. She is on to the corruption that is the disease killing American democracy.

Obama talks up Warren behind closed doors to wealthy donors

 

"......She has publicly bashed millionaires, has sworn off high-dollar fundraisers and has refused large checks from Democratic bundlers. 

But behind the scenes in recent months, former President Obama has gone to bat for Warren (D-Mass.) when speaking to donors reluctant to support her given her knocks on Wall Street and the wealthy. 

And if Warren becomes the nominee, Obama has said they must throw the entirety of their support behind her. ..............

"He obviously thinks she’s very smart,” one Democratic donor added. “He thinks her policy ideas matter.

And I think he sees her running the campaign with the most depth.”  ............

So Obama is saying give-her-money now so you can give-her-even-more later?

If Obama can pull that one over,   he is one hell of a politician.

Warren - A sure way to put Trump back in for another four years, while increasing the GOP majority in the Senate and returning the House to GOP control.

The majority of American voters do NOT want Medicare For All, Free College for All, the New Green Deal or any of the other socialist programs with which Warren is identified.  Even she understands that and is trying to "moderate" her positions, but won't help against Trump.

Look in the mirror or at your own posts for "broken records."  YOU may interpret my responses to others' posts as a "broken record," but they are responses to posts.  So, the broken record to great extent is also the posts to which I respond.

Guess you are saying that I have no right to respond to posts if it is counter to your views.

Get over it.  This is an American election and everyone has the right to express their opinions.

Like I said,  the V.P.  will be a person-of-color since the Pres nominee is sure to be white  (Booker and Yang  are the only non-whites left I believe and they aren't going  to win). 

Castro couldn't endorse is-he-senile-Joe after the viscous attack he made on him during the debates.

A Warren \ Castro ticket would cover a lot of demographics.

JUST IN: After dropping out of presidential race, Julián Castro announces that he is endorsing Sen. Warren for president:
 
"Elizabeth and I share a vision of America where everyone counts ... I'm proud to join her in the fight for big, structural change."

Why push the BS of "where everyone counts";    Clearly Warren doesn't feel billionaires should "count".    I don't either.

Isn't it more a matter of they should be treated more equally and not be allowed to control every aspect of everyone's lives including the political systems?

I'm all for equality,  but both Dems and Repubs make commitments to special-interest groups that have competing interest.

That is mostly what politics is about and in that regard it is impossible for everybody to "count".

BUT both parties try to come off as if they do,  and often do fool the average Joe.

Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren in private 2018 meeting that a woman can't win, sources say

By MJ Lee, CNN Political Correspondent
Updated 8:20 PM EST, Mon January 13, 2020

(CNN)The stakes were high when Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren met at Warren's apartment in Washington, DC, one evening in December 2018. The longtime friends knew that they could soon be running against each other for president.

The two agreed that if they ultimately faced each other as presidential candidates, they should remain civil and avoid attacking one another, so as not to hurt the progressive movement. They also discussed how to best take on President Donald Trump, and Warren laid out two main reasons she believed she would be a strong candidate: She could make a robust argument about the economy and earn broad support from female voters.

Sanders responded that he did not believe a woman could win.

The description of that meeting is based on the accounts of four people: two people Warren spoke with directly soon after the encounter, and two people familiar with the meeting.

After publication of this story, Warren herself backed up this account of the meeting, saying in part in a statement Monday, "I thought a woman could win; he disagreed."

That evening in 2018, Sanders expressed frustration at what he saw as a growing focus among Democrats on identity politics, according to one of the people familiar with the conversation. Warren told Sanders she disagreed with his assessment that a woman could not win, three of the four sources said.

Sanders denied the characterization of the meeting in a statement to CNN.

"It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a woman couldn't win," Sanders said. "It's sad that, three weeks before the Iowa caucus and a year after that private conversation, staff who weren't in the room are lying about what happened. What I did say that night was that Donald Trump is a sexist, a racist and a liar who would weaponize whatever he could. Do I believe a woman can win in 2020? Of course! After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016."

Warren's communications director Kristen Orthman declined to comment.

NEWS: The Sanders campaign researched whether Warren could be both vice president and treasury secretary at once.
 
The answer was yes:

:unsure:   :o

Now that would be interesting.  Gives a whole new perspective to what to do with the vice president.  Of course, it might cause problems with presiding over the Senate, but then she would really only have to be there to break a tie vote.

The New York Times Endorses Elizabeth Warren And Amy Klobuchar

The newspaper shocked with two notable endorsements just weeks before the Iowa caucus, the first Democratic primary vote.

he New York Times editorial board endorsed Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) in the race for the Democratic presidential primary after interviewing the top nine contenders on issues that are most important to voters in this heated election year.

It was a perplexing endorsement, since the two senators are running on significantly divergent platforms. Warren is one of the most progressive candidates in the race, while Klobuchar is a moderate........

 

“Both the radical and the realist models warrant serious consideration. If there were ever a time to be open to new ideas, it is now. If there were ever a time to seek stability, now is it,” the Times’ Editorial Board wrote on Sunday night. “That’s why we’re endorsing the most effective advocates for each approach.” .......

I'm not sure if Warren is telling the truth about Sanders being sexist but she did also say she was going to lower the price of insulin (a campaign promise I really get behind). If she is nominated, i will actually vote for her. I don't see any similarity between Warren and Klobuchar besides the fact they're women. I wouldn't vote for Klobuchar if you forced me at gunpoint.

NYT wasn't stressing any similarities between Warren and Klobuchar;    they endorsed both,  one for those that would like a progressive and one for those that favor a more moderate candidate.

Moderates can get bent for all I care.  Pick a side and fight.

But moderates are more likely to deny rights to  the LGBT community than a progressive.   Isn't that part of your agenda?

Warren will be very pro-LGBT-rights.
