Massachusetts Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren, in her first press conference last Thursday after defeating Sen. Scott Brown, displayed a glaring lack of knowledge and confidence about the issues voters presumably elected her to solve and the campaign she had just run. In fact, Warren, a liberal professor whose supposed intelligence and convictions the mainstream media often fawned over, came across as awkward and unprepared, as she did when she tried to deflect questions about her questionable Native-American heritage last spring.
They should ask her some fluff questions like, "What´s your favorite recipe for acorn mash?" and "Isn´t chewing all of that leather bad for your teeth?" Or, "Do you really think the voters of MA are stupid enough to elect you?"
Well, never mind on that last one. We already have the answer.
Instead of Indian demeaning or mocking words we need to honor the first Native American woman senator. Send her congratulations, plan a statue, demand the news outlets so acknowledge her as such since I do believe she has never denied it or given back the privileges the claim got her?
I love poetic justice or the petards catching their owners.
Ignorant Massachusetts voters might have elected this commie moron, but we´re all stuck with her. I love Cape Cod, but am also increasingly reluctant to spend my vacation dollars in the super blue states.
I have yet to meet the Democrat who could tell you what he or she believes. Ask a Tea Party member or conservative, they know. Small government, low taxes, strong defense, and a strict adherence to the Constitution. Ask a Democrat this same question and they sound like old Fauxcahontas in Massachussets....duh.
It´s hard to believe there wasn´t some fraud involved. Brown´s approval ratings were well ahead of hers, and he got most of the newspaper endorsements, except for the Globe. Even in Boston itself, Brown was running 55-45 ahead of Warren the day before the election.
I should have added to post #33 that when Brown was elected in January 2010, several hundred thousand out-of-state college and university students hadn´t yet returned to Massachusetts from winter break.
I visited Estonia a couple years ago and felt more comfortable there than I do when I´m compelled to go to Massachusetts. How could they vote for this idiot? Oh, sorry, should I have used the word ´how´?
Here in NH we are over run with the mentally challenged Massachusetts moonbats. They are running here to escape the lunacy they vote for only to elect the likes of carol shea porter to congress. Now we are becoming Mass-Lite.
Live Free or Die is morphing to Tax The Free Until They Die.
What a twit. Just like our ditzy senator in NY, Gillibrand. As a woman, when I hear them open their mouths it makes me sick to my stomach. I agree with other posters, the voters of Mass. get what they deserve. Between her and Kerry another moron, they will be well represented in the Senate.
This is scary, but it´s not just Warren. It´s everyone who is being installed into office on the Left -- they are know-nothings.
Look at Franken, look at Warren and others who seem maleable and then ponder that the Left at the highest levels wants idiots in Congress, in Governorships and down-ballot so they can be bullied into toeing the Leftist Party line.
Now look at the military scandal which I believe is all about getting rid of competent people who have America´s best national security interests in mind, in favor of those who will do what they´re told to screw America over and leave her ripe for dictatorship or mullah-rule.
It´s not about sex, and Elizabeth Warren is not about being competent. She is another tool. This infiltration of easily-manipulated tools has now begun to culminate in a country run by socialists, communists and Muslim-friendly Sharia-advocates.
How long until we one day wake up and find ourselves under Marshall Law or worse, with the populace disarmed by new gun laws, our currency useless from debt, our Constitution replaced, electricity, water and food rationed and medical care denied except for minorities?
There are prophets among us talking about these very things. Warren is just a symptom of the cancer that has eaten away at the once-proud nation that used to be the only place to go to be free and prosper.
We have another stupid one here that can´t read legislation like Patient Care and Affordability Act then called Affordable Care Act. But he beats a guy that can´t deflect a dumb media TV star question about abortion and rape. Now we have Fauxcohontis that provides legal services from her office without a law license. And the media TV stars think this is wonderful? This is why I do not buy what they are shoveling or selling in their commercial spots.
This isn´t really news. Massachusetts voters almost always vote for the most corrupt, the most destructive, the most anti-American candidate the Democrats can field. Scott Brown´s election in 2010 was an inexplicable anomoly. Warren is an exceptionably desirable candidate from a Massachusetts point of view.
Please note: Not all residents of MA voted for her. Just as the election was robbed of Col. West & Gov. Romney we were robbed here of Senator Brown.
Please don´t malign those of us stuck behind enemy lines especially here in western MA. We ar every conservativ but we have no voice here, never have and never will. It is harder to stand and fight when you know you will not win than to give up and run.
We continue to fight the good fight with the support of our fellow Americans in red states & those of you LDotters who offer courage in these very dark, dark days.
just to correct a thought. Ben Nighthorse Campbell (born April 13, 1933) was a U.S. Senator from Colorado from 1993 until 2005. Warren is not the first native-american( I hate the hyphenation) senator. Are we Americans or are we African-Americans, Italian-Americans, Cuban-Americans, or Native-Americans. Damn it, we are Americans, PERIOD.
Martial law is the system of rules that takes effect when the military takes control of the normal administration of justice. your sentiment is correct, but please use the correct word, as Rush says, words mean things.
It is very frustrating for MA conservatives every election. I still have family there... even a 20-something nephew who is smart, a hard worker, very bright... and conservative.
We are dang angry that the putrefaction of MA has spread to NH, where we have lived for 15 years. The same pattern occuredin VT, and is being duplicated in the southern states where "boomers" are moving when they retire. My FL sister notes this with chagrin.
So, how did Warren, the bobble-head, beat Brown? A few things, a) she´s reliably left-wing; b) she´s a guaranteed toady for anything Reid/leadership command; c) she got tons of money, and she got profuse propaganda aid by so-called msm.
Some wonder about Harvard. Well, most of the students there are legacy students, not necessarily the brightest. Then there are the minority tokens. Harvard turns out cookie-cutter intellects. Conservatives there have to hone their intellectual skills in order to survive.
Warren reflects all of the banalities.
So really, how did this no experience, know-nothing demagogue get elected? Same way BO did, dem/lefties everywhere and here in NH, too: a lot of women voted with their "lady parts." A lot of men voted with their "lady parts," too. No cognitive function needed.
Aol traces your on line activity so when I went on Google yesterday to look for something Mexican, today the Cheerios ads on some sites I visit all came up in Spanish. I have little hope for the advertisements tomorrow after this article, because I don´t understand fake Cherokee tongue and I don´t need new moccasins.
As for the Mexican guy who knocked on the door yesterday selling something. It helps if you speak English if you want me to buy something (which isn´t going to happen anyway).
C´mon people, you don´t need a ton of smarts to be a Rat politician. Just spew the correct PC nonsense, attack anyone who becomes successful, depend on the useless so-called media to cover for your ignorance and incomptence and MOST importantly...LIE LIE LIE LIE LIE LIE LIE......
When the non-FOX MSM write the narratives and FOX News becomes so much more ´moderate´then the claim that this is a Center-Right country is a massive canard. Warren is one of the flakiest, looniest candidates to come down the pike but she beats the incumbent Brown. Obama remains the least qualified person to sit in the Oval Office in modern American history but waltzes into re-election over an accomplished ´problem solver´ when the Nation has never more needed one....It was and is the non-Fox media that all but guarantees what images and what stories will be told..... Stop the world---I want to get off!
The Mass Senate seat was bought and paid for by the same corruptocrats who have foisted and unqualified, possibly unamerican affirmitive action president upon us. She will be just one more unthinking vote for the democrats in the senate. I am so embarrassed that MA could elect an unprepared, unvetted Okie to replace a man of honor to represent us. The Metro west newspapers last night editorilized that we should elect more veterans to our legislatures to honor and repay them for their service. This after a year of printing nothing but Granny Warren puff pieces. Typical liberal illogic.
Most of these embarrassments get in in presidential election years. The young and many affluent childless urban voters aren´t deeply rooted enough to follow local politics so they are more likely to stay home then. After all, how many Senate or Governor´s races does the Daily Show cover? Ergo they can´t be important.
Come on, it´s MA, she doesn´t need anything other than the equipment between her legs to qualify here. No brains needed to apply for this job. Just show up in dc and do what you are told....and the people of ma deserve no better.
I remember my first trip to Boston back in 04. I was in the Navy then and as you know it was an election year. My friends and I went by MIT on a tour of the city. Talk about your brain dead voters. They tried to shove Kerry buttons and pamplets on me. I took them and threw them in the trash. I see that the quality of voters has not changed with the election of a fake dullard. What is up with you people in Taxachusetts? Thanks for foistering another empty headed female lib senator on us. She should get along with the other female geniuses" like Feinsein, Boxer, Murray, Murkowsky and Graham.
President Obama’s brain trust on Afghanistan does not know much the U.S. spends on the war each year or the American cost in lost lives on the battlefield. This embarrassing lack of basic knowledge from State Department and Pentagon experts on Afghanistan at a House hearing Wednesday prompted even a Democrat to say he was stunned. The setting was the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The Issue: Afghanistan and the transition to fewer U.S. troops post-2014. The witnesses: James F. Dobbins, State’s special representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan; Donald Sampler, assistant to the administrator, U.S. Agency for International Development, which provides
By clearing the decks of the bipartisan budget deal, some political observers say, the GOP establishment is banking on the idea that giving up ground in the spending battle now will pay off over the long run by allowing Republicans to avoid getting punished for another government shutdown. According to this scenario, if there’s no government shutdown, Republicans can focus on the 2014 congressional elections and bank on the growing opposition to Obamacare to strengthen their numbers on Capitol Hill. In the best case, they could add the Senate to their control of the House and be in a better
In explaining the disastrous rollout of Obamacare, President Obama told Chris Matthews he had discovered that “we have these big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed properly.” An interesting discovery to make after having consigned the vast universe of American medicine, one-sixth of the U.S. economy, to the tender mercies of the agency bureaucrats at the Department of Health and Human Services and the Internal Revenue Service. Most people become aware of the hopeless inefficiency of sclerotic government by, oh, age 17 at the department of motor vehicles. Obama’s late discovery is
Tea party groups and fiscal conservatives wasted no time Wednesday in savaging a bipartisan budget agreement negotiated between House Republicans and Senate Democrats, drawing an unusually angry response from House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican. All sides were rating the winners and losers in the deal struck a day earlier between House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, and Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray, Washington Democrat. The modest deficit-cutting deal had some sweeteners for defense contractors and oil drillers, while air travelers, federal workers and some corporate executives would take a hit.
The White House blasted Republicans on Wednesday for criticizing President Obama’s decision to shake hands with Cuban leader Raul Castro. “There used to be a pretty important principle, that originated in the Republican Party, I believe, that partisan politics should stop at the water’s edge,” said White House deputy press secretary Joshua Earnest. “It’s unfortunate that we did see a number of Republicans yesterday who criticized the president for a handshake.” Mr. Obama shook hands with Mr. Castro on stage in South Africa at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela on Tuesday. The U.S. does not have diplomatic relations with
FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio — It doesn’t take long to realize that Jim Majoros is passionate about his job, as he ponders the hue of a new hunting rifle he’s working on. “I’m going to call it ‘Persephone,’ ” he said, referring to the Greek goddess. “It’s going to be light green in color, you know, more soft, but for women who want to hunt.” Business is brisk for gunsmiths such as Majoros, who repairs and customizes firearms in this small Lake Erie beach town east of Cleveland. This year, more than 82,000 new concealed-carry weapons licenses were issued in Ohio
House Republicans appeared Wednesday to be rallying around an $85 billion deal to avert another government shutdown, brushing off complaints from their right wing that the effort would trade immediate spending cuts for less-certain long-term savings. After conducting a series of closed-door briefings and polling members during a late-afternoon vote, GOP leadership aides confidently predicted that the deal struck between House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) would sail through the House when it comes to a vote Thursday. The moment seemed to mark a potentially significant shift by House Republicans away
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
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
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
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
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
