Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, June 30, 2014

Sen. Elizabeth Warren was in full campaign mode Sunday, thrusting her fists in the air and delivering folksy aphorisms with a slight twang as she relentlessly attacked Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell. "I'm a little surprised to be here, partly because I'm a little surprised to be in the United States Senate," the Massachusetts Democrat said, standing next to McConnell's Democratic opponent, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes. "I am the daughter of a janitor and I ended up in the United States Senate. America is truly a great place."

"It's about whose side the candidate is on," Warren said in an interview, when asked which candidates she is planning to campaign for.

"Do they want to go to Washington so they can help the millionaires and billionaires, or do they want to give everybody a fighting chance?"

OUCH!
Quite a cool response here from the DR left!
Kind of like those climate change rallies that got 1 person to attend.

So it's the "I am the daughter of a janitor" line she is going with now. No more boasting about being a native American?

I will leave it to you to look up Urban Dictionary's definition of "janitor's daughter."

She is doing exactly what I said she should be doing, I just didn't realize she already was.

If the best her haters can do it attack her honest mistake regarding genealogy y'all are a bunch of buppets and while you hate she continues to come up with ideas that just may end up saving your butts.

Ho hum. She's a nice lady who will never be president unless she is willing to make like Carlyle Clinton and be a shill for the plutocracy.

Yeah, she came out against recreational pot and for Hillary, so she is not a "real" liberal to the purest of the pure liberals, more like a NeoCon Jr.

They will never be satisfied until we get Tex Cruz or Sarah Palin for President.

Nulli: I don't think the word "shill" means what you think it means. Specifically, a person who does not agree with you on all liberal issues is not per se a "shill" for big business and The Carlyle Group. (Just thought I'd toss that out to you.)

Considering how much wall street creeps hate Warren I question the liberalness of anyone who hates her.

Sadly, this probably sounded in your head like it was a really good post.

Sadder still, it probably still does.

Why would a populist not want to put a fence on the southern border??

That's obviously true, Sherlock. I'm only stating the facts: that Carlyle Clinton is pro-Wall Street, pro-imperialism, pro-surveillance. I'd like to see Warren knock her out.

Corky,
Can you narrow it down any?

Anyone in favor of 'comprehensive' immigration reform is not a populist.

Warren will be campaigning for her instead, as she is for Dem candidates around the country.

That's possible, Ms. Cleo. She doesn't appear to have that power-hungry obsession that Carlyle does.

LOL
WTF are you talking about. Someone declares themselves America's #1 populist and that makes them so?
Pat Buchanan is America's #1 populist. :)

Ah, the ad hominem. It smells like napalm in the morning.

But as an argument, it's bs.

Nope. It's a fact.

You support Elizabeth Warren for President?

He doesn't support anyone for President, he just denigrates those who have any real chance of winning.

You say populist I say socialist

BOB SCHIEFFER: You know, your fans say you're a populist, but your critics say you're just basically a socialist.

SEN. WARREN: (LAUGHS) I just don't know where they get that. You know, look at the issues. I mean this, really. Let's take a look at them. Minimum wage? I just believe nobody should work full time and live in poverty. And you know what? Most of America agrees. Student loans, I don't think the U.S. government should be making tens of billions of dollars in profits off the backs of our students,

CORKY Warren could win every "blue" state with ease.

I'm not sure How she'd do with swing states or "red" states.

You can't be a populist and support the eradication of our southern border. You can't be a populist and support 'comprehensive immigration reform'. Otherwise you may be just a socialist, or worse a partisan Democrat.

A true populist would be opposed to illegal immigration and guest workers.

A true populist would be concerned that all of the job gains over the last decade have gone to immigrants.

Of course that's a populist nationalism. There may be a variety of forms of populism, including Chavez's populist socialism in Venezuela.

She'll be able to sell the populism but not the socialism.

Republicans would be smart to craft a message of populist nationalism.

A true populist would also be concerned that the employers have hired far more immigrants than Americans. If the employers would simply stop doing that, many of the immigrants would go home.. No expensive border fence necessary.

Someone has their drama costume on.

What do you think the Tea Party is if not that?

I agree that employers should be prosecuted.
So if the tea party is national populist then what do you have against them? (Please spre the drama and comment on stated purposes of the tp)

You do realize that prosecutions of employers are way up over the Bush years right?

Yea, and kudos to Huguenot for acknowledging that it should happen more. I've had discussions on this board where other conservatives have defended the employers, while chastising the immigrants.

The immigrants are small time perpetrators in this issue. Most of them are simply trying to survive.

"Most of them are simply trying to survive."

Exactly as my ancestors, I suspect many others' ancestors as well. Immigrants are always resented, always for the same reasons. In spite of that most Americans would agree that immigration and diversity is actually what made this nation great.

She's not a socialist per any high ranking socialist elected in Europe or North America.

And the GOP seems to hate populism save for it's worst forms.

he just denigrates those who have any real chance of winning.

#24 | Posted by Corky

And he should as no one with any scruples, morals, integrity or honor has any chance of winning.

But I guess voting for the person who pretends to care about American poor people is better than voting for the one who just wants endless war.

Not everyone can be as perfectly pure as you, deary.

But I guess ridiculing people who are willing to try for national office, especially when one has no candidate, would not be considered hypocritical... in some galaxy far, far away.

Populism serves the masses, while elitism serves oligarchs. I support populists of both Parties because they serve most Americans.

Clinton is a warmongering neocon who loved just loved the Iraq invasion when it was politically convenient to do so. Warren not so much.

Warren > Clinton
