Funny thing is, that's also one of the Tea Party's causes, as well, but we have become so polarized that they can't agree with the message if it comes from someone with a D after their name.

So now what? Will the Conservatives fight against one of the few voices in Washington who is attempting to stand up to Wall Street? There's a name for that--it's called cutting off one's nose to spite one's face. How ridiculous is that?

I, too, don't want Warren to run for president. I want her in the Senate, giving voice to the issues that most people in Congress are too cowardly, or too bought and paid for, to raise.
The Senate will likely ignore her as the House did, Ron Paul.

You think the 'true' conservatives will vote Dem? They will vote for whoever gets nominated.

I am just tired of political royals here. But Warren is a nut job in her own right being almost American Indian...so she dreams. What a crock we push to the forefront....
How about a doctor/businessman for a change? Not just a 2 year congressman/community activist who can't understand simple business/economic issues?
Whose wife is hooked on pills?

McCain's wife was, back when. It had no impact or role in his loss.

About a decade ago, Jeb Bush's daughter was arrested for prescription fraud and ordered into long term rehab. There she managed to acquire and get caught with pills and crack. At what point do people stop blaming parents for the choices of their adult children?

The same might back either Ted Cruz, Rick Perry or Mike Huckabee--but they're all too far right for nationwide election.
It's early yet. Of your list I don't consider Cruz to be far right. I guess it all depends on what one calls far right. I want a president who will stand up for the rule of law and our Constitution instead of bending them.

Ted Cruz is not far right he just might be the most far right person in DC right now. If he had his way Government would old have a police force and army Government would do nothing else and we would be broken up into 4 or 5 smaller countries

Jeb's a RINO, it won't be easy for him.

If you look at the signatures on the statement of principles on the Project for the New American Century website you will not se GW's signature. You will see Jeb's signature. I won't vote for a neocon for President.

I was watching FOX in the gym yesterday and it seems that "Warren is a ultra-liberal" meme is on the move. Personally, I want her to stay in the Senate, but on an issue to issue basis, she's a middle-class issues populist. The fact that people think that standing up for middle class economic interests is ultra-liberal is frightening.
I visited a number of sites to see what her positions are.

By the same token, I want Ted Cruz to stay in the senate also--and not run for president--ever.
