A jittery U.S. senator-elect Elizabeth Warren gave one-sentence answers, ducked questions and even passed one on to Gov. Deval Patrick in an awkward first press conference since the election. Warren spoke for a total of less than four minutes during the 11-minute press conference — the rest was taken up by Patrick and reporters’ questions. After being asked her first question — how she’d protect defense spending — Warren was silent as she turned to Patrick. “Defense spending is you,” Patrick prodded Warren. “Oh, that’s mine,” Warren replied.
Silly people, Granny Warren was elected to use her lady smarts, she was elected to prop up her pimp daddy's policies. She's supposed to show up and vote yes at the right times and no at the right times and by all means, keep those glasses on as that is about the only intelligent thing about you. Mass. will regret the loss of Brown, but thankfully he's young and could run again and beat the beaded fringe off of this fraudulent squaw.
Kind of tarnishes the "Harvard" brand doesn't it? This woman is the village idiot and she is dishonest and corrupt. Massachusetts can sure pick them: Teddy the swimmer, Kerry the jigalo, Deval Patrick the plagiarist, etc.
Actually she won't have to worry much about national defense. We no longer have any. So be happy Warren. Move on to free contraception, or cell phones, or whatever you brain dead cretons think up to give away next.
They wanted her, but WE got her. The Bay State has foisted another heinous liberal on the American Senate, and we will all be dealing with her impact for years and years. Now that she's in there, she will never be defeated.
I can't believe that Scott Brown lost to this woman. In the immortal words of Bugs Buunny, "What a maroon!" I loved that when I was a kid.
Rush also does a parody of a liberal who wants his tattoo removed in the Tattoo Removal Program who says in a dopey voice, "I did't know how to spell maroon." I always assumed that he spelled it moron. Sort of a reverse bugs bunny joke.
I'm on business right now in Rhode Island (close by MASS) and, driving down the 95, saw a truck dealership and truck stop with a big, LED advertising display sign along side the freeway that heralded the arrival of Duh Won and Biden.
Haven't drunk any of the water since, not even bottled water!!
Well senators can be impeached, but every liberal absolutely owns the coming, improved disaster. All of their bright ideas from anti redlining to killing Glass Stegall have brought the planet unbearable debt. Very soon we will see what the reset will bring, but first EVERY dollar, EVERY fiat currency will be destroyed, replaced or expanded. All the careful savings might go away overnight or shrink as incredible inflation kicks in. Being smug about inflation because the economy is in a coma now doesn't mean it isn't ready to flame on.
Everyone from Europe to CA and NY will shamble into the White House with a plea about too big to fail and this President won't have an alternative. Especially if he turns to a senate populated by clones of this idiot.
Citizens of the commonwealth, you have made your selections and may need to change the name of your body to commonpoverty. It won't be long before you are investigating how to throw out a Senator. Wait till you discover that having a state created insurance exchange creates a tax liability and increases the cost on small businesses.
Funny, but when I see Elizabeth Warren, both 'Tonto' and 'Que no sabe' come to mind. Both are spanish. The first one translates to 'Idiot' and the second one roughly translates to 'the one that does not know'.
I had arrogant stupid professors when I matriculated ....as the yrs passed I went to work at my alma mater. Lots of them had their cars towed off from improper parking. I got in trouble for such, but they had to go rub elbows with the towtruck folks and that aggravated them no end. This woman here gives me the botts.
Awkward ??? When Deval Patrick looks like the only one with 2 brain cells at the podium, you know you have a problem. Squaw Warren makes Biden look like a Phi Beta Kappa or at least someone conversant with the English language. Maybe the press should ask questions with smoke signals because Warren is clearly confused. And before everyone throws the entire state into the fire, we should keep in mind that a fair number of Massachusetts counties went for Romney and there are 1,177,370 patriots in Massachusetts who voted Romney. Unfortunately , like the rest of us, they were just outnumbered.
TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Country Music Hall of Fame member and country music legend Ray Price, 87, plans to leave East Texas Medical Center in Tyler on Thursday to go to his home in Mount Pleasant where he will be provided with hospice care. Price, who is best known for his country classics, including Release Me, Crazy Arms and For the Good Times, has been battling pancreatic cancer since 2011. Since then, the disease has spread to his liver, intestines and lungs, even with aggressive treatment. Price and his wife, Janie, who have been married for 45 years, made the
HOUSTON - "Affluenza," the term used by a psychologist to argue that a North Texas teenager from a wealthy family should not be sent to prison for killing four pedestrians while driving drunk, is not a recognized diagnosis and should not be used to justify bad behavior, psychologists said Thursday. The term was popularized in the late 1990s by Jessie O´Neill, the granddaughter of a past president of General Motors, when she wrote the book "The Golden Ghetto: The Psychology of Affluence." It has since been used to describe a condition in which children — generally from richer families —
WASHINGTON — The House moved toward passage of a bipartisan budget accord on Thursday evening that is intended as a truce in the spending battles that have paralyzed Congress for nearly three years, as leaders in both parties sought to marginalize hard-line conservatives opposed to any compromise. With bipartisan support in hand, Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio declared open warfare on the outside conservative groups that have tried to scuttle the budget deal. For the second day in a row, he accused groups like Club for Growth, Heritage Action and Americans for Prosperity of reflexively opposing a reasonable plan
WASHINGTON – The Obama administration moved Thursday to help tens of thousands of sick Americans who have struggled to enroll in health coverage for next year because of problems with the rollout of new insurance marketplaces created by the president’s health law. The Department of Health and Human Services announced that patients who have been enrolled in special insurance plans for consumers denied coverage elsewhere would be able to stay on those plans until the end of January. Nearly 86,000 people are currently in such plans. These state-based plans – known as Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plans – were created by
Wall Street´s third down day in a row pushed stocks to their lowest levels in a month as investors worried that the end may be nearing for the Federal Reserve´s support for the economy. The Fed´s stimulus efforts have been a key factor in the bull market that has pushed the Standard & Poor´s 500 index 25 higher percent this year. Investors know it will end sooner or later. But the timing, and the fallout, are uncertain. Until this month, stocks had risen for eight weeks straight. But stocks posted their biggest declines in five weeks on Wednesday, and dropped
Approximately 800 school children waving American flags greeted the Wreaths Across America convoy at their school on Wednesday in Middletown, N.J., for a wreath laying ceremony and tribute honoring World War II veterans who fought in the Battle of the Bulge. The WAA caravan included over 10 trailer trucks filled with wreaths. The group is laying wreaths to honor and remember the country’s veterans during its weeklong journey, which began in Maine on Dec. 7. Its final stop will be at Arlington National Cemetery on Dec. 14, where at least 100,000 wreaths will be laid on the graves of veterans.
(Video) Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) outburst Thursday at outside conservative groups is going viral on the Internet. Boehner voiced incredulity Thursday that the same groups that pushed Republicans to shut down the government later said they knew the strategy wouldn´t succeed in defunding ObamaCare. “Are you kidding me?!” Boehner exclaimed at the GOP´s press conference at the Capitol. It’s the second day in a row Boehner has criticized the groups. People began tweeting that Boehner’s outburst would make a good Gif.
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
