    Progressives start push for Elizabeth Warren 2016

    Progressives start push for Elizabeth Warren 2016

    Can I call ’em or what?

    Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

    As noted at the Wiki, the progressive movement has had a twinkle in its eye for an Elizabeth Warren presidential campaign since before she was elected to the Senate, Elizabeth Warren for President in 2016 movement.

    Now it’s gaining steam, via The Boston Herald, Elizabeth Warren winning support for 2016 White House bid:

    Just a few months into her first U.S. Senate term, Democrat Elizabeth Warren is generating increasing support among liberals as a White House contender — putting her on a potential collision course with presumed front-runner Hillary Clinton.

    Warren’s tough stand against the Obama administration’s proposal to potentially cut Social Security benefits has become a lightning rod for progressive groups looking for a more liberal standard bearer in 2016.

    “If Elizabeth Warren ran, millions of people would obviously support her candidacy enthusiastically,” said Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, who helped draft Warren to run for U.S. Senate against GOP incumbent Scott Brown….

    “If Hillary Clinton or others don’t firmly oppose these cuts, they open up a huge amount of political space for an insurgent to run and win,” Green said.

    T. Neil Sroka, communications director for the progressive group Democracy for America, said the group would push for an alternative presidential candidate such as Warren in 2016 if the Democratic candidate supports benefit cuts of any kind.

    I still think Hillary has a lock on the nomination if she wants it.

    But if Hillary doesn’t run, consider Warren a top contender, bolstered by a compliant and uncritical mainstream media the likes of which has not been seen since Barack Obama.

    It’s why we didn’t drop our scrutiny of Warren after the election.  If anything, she has proven to be more adept at creating false narratives than anticipated with her YouTube moments:

    Elizabeth Warren has a unique talent for marrying victimhood with demagoguery.  Which is why she should not be discounted as a 2016 Democratic presidential candidate.

    That is why we will continue to build upon, and to hold Warren accountable for her own lack of transparency and her unwillingness to apologize for her own historical transgressions.

    Update: I previously mentioned Warren being caught inventing family lore about her brother, Elizabeth Warren backtracks on story of brother living on just $13,200, now the video is available:

    If Warren is a prospective presidential candidate*, besides seeing this country disappearing down the drain, we might as well nominate Al Franken to run on the same ticket as the VP candidate.

    *Warren and presidential in the same sentence is an oxymoron.

    Warren would be a lousy candidate for them, so I hope they pick her. Every time she speaks she alienates voters. Her whole life story is a fraud.

    I also don’t think this country would vote for a female president. Not yet, anyway.

    Hillary is OLD and SICK. She is also TIRED. Plus, Benghazi. Also, just wtf did she accomplish as Secretary of State? Four full years and I, a news junkie, can’t think of a single thing she could point to as an accomplishment. Two years from now, assuming she’s still alive, the odds of her having the energy and willpower to mount a serious run are pretty low. I suspect she won’t even try.

    My guesses on the next D nominee: O’Malley (MD Governor), or Cuomo (NY gov), or Tim Kaine (VA Senator, former head of DNC, former governor of VA, former mayor of Richmond). Kaine’s the one that worries me the most. He’s as radical as the rest, but successfully campaigns as if he’s a moderate Republican. He can win independents.

    My step-mother is a professor at ASU and has written multiple books on Env/Green nonsense…

    Needless to say- she WILL NOT STFU about Elizabeth Warren.

    Sen. Warren v. Sec. Clinton!? That will be fun up to a point: Hillary will slice and dice Fauxcahontas. If you’re from Chicago, you know how to go up against the Arkansas Mofia; if you’re from Harvard, you won’t know what hit you. The only bad news is that Warren will return to the Senate, and Hillary will go on to the White House.

    Women voters will not wait to have a woman President. If the GOP doesn’t nominate a woman, the GOP — and the country — is toast.
