Warren Is Coming, Hide Your Wallet

Remember last election, when all the pundits kept telling us that no one in history had ever won reelection with approval poll numbers so low, with unemployment this high, with the economy this bad, with (plug in any number of aphorisms used) indicating that Obama was toast? Clearly we were in uncharted territory. In a prior post Hal told us that we did it in the 1990′s (balanced a budget) and we can do it again, we are so far in the weeds that nothing is as it was. Your typical mutual fund prospectus warns ,”Past performance is no guarantee of future results”, our society now and in the future will be just like that, throw all the maxims right out the window, nothing should ever surprise us.

This weekend I was working a junior tennis event in a fairly affluent area of the Bay Area (more so than the rest)and I noticed a bumper sticker that read ,”A proud supporter of the Elizabeth Warren faction of the Democratic Party” (naturally the car was totally safe, only one sporting a GOP bumper sticker would ever get vandalized). I knew that Warren was really out there, to the left of pretty much everyone but I had no idea she garnered a real faction within the party. I fought off the urge to go find the owner, then disqualify his kid from competition (or just tell the kid after he won ,”Sorry, the progressive movement does not have winners or losers, so I’m “redistributing” that trophy you just won to some one with less talent, your dad will be so proud of you”)

Strange how a relative new comer, with even less experience (as if that was possible) then Obama could warrant their own bumper sticker. Knowing what a loon she was, a wave of doom washed over me ,”No way, a just God would not plaque us with another clueless progressive, right after this clueless progressive;

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me.

Obama has authorized his chief political adviser, Valerie Jarrett, to conduct a full-court press to convince Warren to throw her hat into the ring.
In the past several weeks, Jarrett has held a series of secret meetings with Warren. During these meetings, Jarrett has explained to Warren that Obama is worried that if Hillary succeeds him in the White House, she will undo many of his policies.
He believes that the populist Warren is the best person to convince the party faithful that Hillary is out of touch with poor Americans and the middle class. Warren, in his view, would carry on the Obama legacy after he leaves the White House.

How funny, someone so out of touch with poor Americans and the middle class can accuse Hillary of being out of touch with poor Americans and the middle class.

This development should send a chill up the spine of every thinking tax paying American. The 1/32 Cherokee (conveniently used to secure teaching gigs under “minority” status) is widely known for her “you did not build that” speech that Obama pilfered;

A pointy headed academician of the worst sort, she garners wide range support nationwide. On it’s face it seems far fetched, she has no political resume older than 2 years old, how could such a neophyte ever hope to secure the presidency, umm, Obama was an anomaly, right?

I don’t mind admitting harboring some Schadenfreude concerning Hillary and how constipated she must feel having to work for something she felt entitled to, and how delicious would a hair pulling primary debate between the two would be?

    I’ll agree with you that Warren is dangerous — I’ve attacked her many times before (just look at the Elizabaeth Warren tag). She’s everything bad about the Left — smug, condescending and factually incorrect. Every utterance she says is pure liberal boilerplate and is praised to the skies by the Left wing.

    But the contention that Obama is quietly supporting her is almost certainly bullshit. This is Ed Klein, who is a lying hack. You should read James Joyner on this (http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/obama-secretly-backing-warren-over-clinton-declares-lying-hack/). He was touting Hillary as the big radical six years ago. And wrote a book eight years ago about Clinton that was so factually-challenged and so ridiculously sordid that conservative denounced it.

    Obama will back Hillary. To do otherwise would to be admit what an omnishambles his foreign policy has been.

    I admit that there is probably no one farther removed from the pulse of the Democrats than myself, but it sure would make sense to have some “tension” between the Clintons and the Obamas. I think Warren is more ideologically connected to Obama, so that part of the story resonates, but whether it’s now (2016) or later, she is a rising star.

    I propose we start calling her Chief Rising Star in honor of her Native American heritage.

    Nobody “authorizes” Jarrett to do shit; she’s the actual boss of this administration – she told Obama what she was going to do and what he was going to say.

    If she told him to eat a bullet on national television, he’d load the gun himself….

    If that woman actually gets the nomination, I plan to do the Atlanta Braves “tomahawk chop” every time her name comes up in conversation. Either that, or form a “Draft Jimmy Carter” faction and infiltrated the Democrats.
