Elizabeth Warren: On second thought, it’s probably silly to think I’ll save capitalism

I don’t know, guys. She probably shouldn’t be so quick to abandon this insane talking point. Democrats do pretty well when they run on the opposite of what they end up doing. They took back the House in 2006 promising to scale back U.S. adventures abroad and rein in spending, O got elected president in 2008 promising to unite the nation and bring a new type of politics to Washington, etc. With that as precedent, if there’s any liberal in all the land who’s super duper “pro-capitalism,” it’s Elizabeth Warren.

Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is copping out of her claim that Wall Street executives are supporting her because she’ll “save capitalism,” saying she made a “silly” gaffe.

“I passed along a comment that was over the top, and it was silly for me to do so,” she told the Herald at a Somerville campaign stop.

Warren had boasted to the National Journal that Wall Street executives have told her: “I want to support your campaign because you will save capitalism.”

The real significance of this clip? She’s learned that, when you’re in a hole politically, it’s best to just stop and crawl out. Not dig, and dig, and dig. And dig.

Dear, I don’t know how you mean it. Can you save capitalism single-handedly? Of course, Nokomis is warrior clan, she can do anything.
Is there one shot in h*ll that she would lower herself to do so? Of course not, she has principles.
That cleared up–How’s that Bow Wow Chow sequel coming along? The president is getting mighty hungry.

So – how is an outright lie considered a “SILLY GAFFE”? Silly bitch.

So Lizzie admits that she’s not a Junior Lightbringer? Extraordinaire?

I’m so shocked.

Maybe the Dems shouldn’t wait til the convention to pass out the secret decoder rings.

She stands out like a sore thumb as being a dishonest liberal Democrat who was willing to lie about her heritage and used that lie to gain admission to higher education, grants, and the entire ball of wax like Barack Obama.
What is it that possesses the average citizen of the People’s Republic, when they not only have seen her for the phony she is, that they will still consider voting her back on the public teat.

This is a serious problem with the electorate, or should I say the freeloaders of Masachusetts. It sure is apparent that the spirit of the original people that threw off the yoke of a foreign king has long-since been diluted to nothing.

I can think of a lot of words to describe Elizabeth Warren, and “silly” is the least of them.

Silly indeed, since up to know you’ve been pretty clearly trying to end Capitalism/Federalism and help Obama replace it with Socialism/Marxism.
