This liar is going to be a do-nothing loudmouth. That's all she's going to be. Her and Grayson.

You might think Dr. Warren is a liar and a loudmouth, but if you think she'll do nothing, you're in for a surprise.

Just what I needed. A good steaming pile of fear, doom and gloom. Burp!

Warren's "creation" the Consumer Protection Bureau is simply another unnecessary government bureaucracy enforcing laws that other government bureaucracies are too stupid, lazy, or incompetent to enforce themselves. It will protect irresponsible people to the detriment of responsible people. Fees that were levied against delinquent customers will now be spread out among all customers making banking for the responsible people more expensive.
Scott Brown voted less and less with the Republicans as the election got closer. He also sided with the Republican's on cloture 75% of the time. Real bi-partisianship should include letting the Senate get back to functioning the way it was designed. Warren was able to point of specific votes were Brown went with the Republican's when the majority of his constituents disagreed.

Plus the voters in Massachusetts understood that Brown was ALLOWED by his caucus to occasionally vote with Dems on meaningless bills or bills that stood no chance, solely to appease his constituents. That's politics. It doesn't mean he gives a good goddamn for any Democratic issues.

As a voter in Massachusetts I humbly ask:

WTF are you talking about?!?!?

BTW, do you think that his caucus approved of his vote on DADT?

In politics, it's called "cover." It was going to pass with or without his vote. But now he gets voters like you to believe he's actually a progressive. Of course they approved it, it's a no-brainer for them.
