Jeez, Dems. Relax. Be patient. You'll get the fat drunk's Massachusetts Senate seat back in good time. If it's not Warren, it'll be some other unemployed pol.

Mostly because she's a moron.

Her academic pedigree does not trump reality.

Where is this so called "social contract"?

I'd rather have a populace that learns that Constitution and what it means.

Not one which runs to the government for help every time there are hard times.

As someone from the obama administration stated "never let a crisis go to waste".

We, as a nation, have given the government way too much power due to fear.

Both sides of the aisle are more than willing to "help".

Because she's an old, dried up, collectivist hen.

Why Are Republicans Scared of Elizabeth Warren? Because She Fights for the Middle Class
Winning Progressive » Blog Archive » Why Are Republicans Scared of Elizabeth Warren? Because She Fights for the Middle Class


Many Republicans have stopped pretending their actions are motivated by anything except a desire to serve Wall Street and other large corporate interests.

Quote:
During an unusually contentious hearing on the Hill Tuesday, Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-North Carolina, lashed out at Elizabeth Warren, the fierce consumer advocate tapped to head the Financial Consumer Protection Bureau, browbeating her and falsely accusing her of "lying." Three of the top five industries to contribute to McHenry's campaign are commercial banks, insurers and accounting firms, so his opposition should come as little surprise, but the unusually aggressive grilling caught observers by surprise. The New York Times called it a "rare collapse of the decorum that usually pervades discussions among even the most fervent opponents on Capitol Hill." What is it about Warren that has Republicans so hot?

McHenry's savage attack on Elizabeth Warren and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was an obscenity by any definition except the FCC's, an assault on human decency proving once again that Wall Street's Capitol Hill goon squad is prepared to discard decency at a moment's notice to serve its masters.

These things explain why Republicans in Congress are scared to death of Warren, but as to why the average American citizen should be scared of her, there is no other answer than just plain stupidity and ignorance.

She's just what we don't need: another darling of academia in power. It's a little bit different out there in the world thn it is behind the ivory walls. How many of these people have realized that they're in over their heads and jumped ship on the Obama admin and gone back to the safety net of those walls? She's a rookie and has no idea what she's in for. She also hasn't debated the other candidates yet. I see her as a sacrifical lamb for the left. Scott Brown will crush her even in deep blue Libbachusetts.

Then there's this...some good ol' fashioned socialism:

Her actions, will actually cost the middle class, jobs.

As with all government ideas, the consequences outweigh the good intentions. The short sighted idea, of the intellectual elite, that cannot see past the noses, they look down at you with, eventually becomes a boondoggle of waste and corruption.

Wasn't it her and the panel's job to disclose where government funds went through the bailout?

Taking into account the 30 or so official reports issued by the panel on the program, it's hard to find someone who believes she wasn't aggressive in her stance regarding the financial institutions actions, culpability and liability to the citizens for their roles.

"Atlas Shrugged" always comes to mind when I hear these leftist's spout off about what the successful "owe".

Never do they mention what the "recipient class" owe.
