    MSM meme — Elizabeth Warren is nicely bold while Ted Cruz is offensively aggressive

    MSM meme — Elizabeth Warren is nicely bold while Ted Cruz is offensively aggressive

    Look at how dreamy Morning Joe treats Elizabeth Warren’s “grilling” of bank regulators (it hardly was a grilling, just a single inane gotcha question she repeated over and over for dramatic effect):

    Now contrast that with how Morning Joe treats Ted Cruz’s grilling of Chuck Hagel, via Mike Allen of Politico (which is pushing really hard the Ted Cruz is extremist meme):

    Politico even is in love with the fact that Warren will not make herself available to reporters, a continuation of her campaign tactics.

    Your media bias in action, and in video.

    Warren’s image is being groomed (for higher office?), while the Stop Extremist Ted Cruz meme develops.

    Can you imagine what the reaction will be if Cruz ever takes a drink of water?

    Update:  I told you so, it’s why we have preserved the months of research at ElizabethWarrenWiki.org and will continue to add to it:

    Which “big banks” does Lizzie Warren want to see the Obama regulators taking to trial? Goldman, Sachs (which contributed over $808k to Obama’s 2008 campaign)? Citigroup (which contributed over $736k to Obama’s 2008 campaign)? UBS (which contributed over $532k to Obama’s 2008 campaign)? Morgan Stanley (which contributed over $512k to Obama’s 2008 campaign)? Or perhaps the regulators should just take the entire financial/insurance industry to trial — except that the Obama campaign, which received over $42 million in 2008 campaign contributions from that industry, might have something to say about that.

    And what offenses did these big banks commit for which they should be tried, in Warren’s opinion? Giving mortgage loans to unqualified minority borrowers? Giving millions of taxpayer-backed mortgages to illegal aliens? These were certainly very stupid actions that ended up costing taxpayers billions of dollars in losses, but they were actions that were promoted and encouraged by the banking industry’s favorite (and wholly-owned) politician, Barry Obama.

      While the lending was “stupid”, it was also made mandatory by the actions of BIG GOVERNMENT. I remember Janet “Big Foot” Reno explicitly threatening (illegally, IMNHO) banks and other lenders with regulatory hell if they were not compliant with demands for relaxed loan criteria.

      All the resulting “stupid” was the direct effect. Both predicable and predicted. And, remember, the inflation of the housing bubble was called for by none other than Kwazy Paul Krugman (Enron adviser)!

    Why hasn’t Ted Cruz been forthcoming with his family lore? What’s he hiding?

    Don’t you know? Liz Ham Warren is the Left’s Dalai Mama.

    1. Politico even is in love with the fact that Warren will not make herself available to reporters, a continuation of her campaign tactics.

    The way Warren set up the agency she expected to head indicates that her style is to avoid accountability.

    She is an even emptier suit than Obama. Her campaign was funded by so far unidentified major backers, e.g. big California money, with an eye toward the Presidency. It’s prudent of her to avoid the press.

    2. Did Warren think of her question or was it supplied to her by her handlers?

    3. A conjecture regarding why Wall Street has not been prosecuted: the Wall Streeters have evidentiary records of bigshot Democrats telling them to do what they did.

    My wife is a liberal who hates Sarah Palin. I plan to tell her that Elizabeth Warren is the left’s version of Palin. I also plan to read to her excerpts of Philip Shuchman’s review of Warren’s 1989 book.
