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?
