Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has not had her best week. Her release of a DNA test, which showed a distant Native American ancestor, led to attacks from many on the right, some on the left and plenty of people in between. And for what? President Trump would have continued to mock her as Pocahontas no matter what the results showed.

Many quick-to-judge pundits declared that her hopes of a successful candidacy for the Democratic nomination in 2020 took a serious blow. “She shouldn’t exactly terrify her rivals just yet,” declared Ross Douthat in the New York Times, in a typical example. No good, just about everyone declared, will come of wrestling with Trump in the gutter of insults and bad faith.

Au contraire. Democrats would be playing straight into Trump’s (tiny) hands if they allow this controversy to define Warren. Warren remains a formidable political presence. She has a preternatural understanding of the pocketbook politics of most Americans. Unlike Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), it’s hard to dismiss the grandma from Oklahoma as a radical — heck, she was a Republican till the mid-1990s. But most important: Warren is one of the few Democrats who consistently calls Trump out on his lies in a way that catches the public’s attention and can leave him on the defensive in 2020.

Trump claims to speak for the blue-collar man and woman. That’s where Warren comes from. Trump was a millionaire by age 8, courtesy of his father’s real estate fortune and tax dodges. Warren grew up in a working-class family in Oklahoma that experienced tough times. Trump’s so out of touch with how the rest of us live, his idea of hard times is a made-up story about how his dad lent him $1 million that he — Donald — had to reimburse – with interest. (It was actually at least $60.7 million, and Trump didn’t pay back much at all.)

Warren came to public attention when she began studying bankruptcy. Instead of finding — as  she expected — a bunch of loose-living people manipulating the system, she discovered a nation of people living on the edge, one medical crisis or divorce or lost job from the financial abyss. Trump lived large even as his businesses declared bankruptcy multiple times. Warren created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which protects people — or did, until Trump and Mick Mulvaney came along — from the shenanigans of the financial services industry. Trump ripped off his fans via schemes such as the fraudulent Trump University, where he claimed he would share the secrets of his business acumen but instead pocketed the money of his hard-luck acolytes.

Trump, who claimed he would “drain the swamp” spends his time in office looking out for the interests of big business, and he has put in place numerous appointees who have rolled back regulations ranging from environmental protections to net neutrality. Many come from the private sector and act like that’s who they are still working for. Warren debuted legislation taking on what’s known as legalized corruption: banning the revolving door, demanding presidential candidates make their tax returns public and expanding the definition of lobbying. She has also introduced a plan to beef up corporate accountability, reduce the incentives for stock buybacks, make it harder for corporations to spend money on political speech and give workers more of a voice in management.

No surprise, Warren also gets under the skin of the congressional Republican leadership, who can be baited into saying things they should not about her. The most famous example will forever go to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who shut down Warren on the floor of the Senate during a debate on the nomination of Jeff Sessions to serve as attorney general. “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.” This turned Warren into a heroine of the female resistance to Trump.

Warren, like all of us, is not perfect. Her office is famously guarded, with the press and outsiders alike, something that could go a long way toward explaining this week’s fiasco. She didn’t do enough outreach with the indigenous community. Talking all this over with advisers outside her tight inner circle probably would have helped, too — I find it hard to believe anyone not on her payroll or dependent on her good will would have told her it was a good idea to release this information so close to the midterms and without talking first to the Cherokee Nation. But it’s hard not to suspect her would-be primary rivals are enjoying the show and keeping it going for their own ends. The Wall Street wing of the Democratic Party is no fan of Warren. Others support different potential candidates in 2020. Why move in to protect a perceived front-runner when you’d rather replace her?

Here’s the truth of the matter: When you throw punches, sometimes you leave yourself open to counterpunches. It’s the ability to get up again and fight the good fight that matters. Warren, unlike many Democrats who tend to be so cautious voters dismiss them as wimps, possesses that ability. It’s a mistake to count her out. Trump gives nasty nicknames to people who threaten him, who he believes can do him real damage. He calls Warren “Pocahontas” because he wants to dismiss her as a fraud and continue his flimflam act. Democrats shouldn’t help him.

Actually, Warren has a shot. She appears to be everything Trump isn't. Once the wrecking ball is through she could be the one to put everything back together.

It has been shown that the author of that line did not understand DNA, and every writer in the country ran with the error.  It will always stand as truth.  Sorta like the fa;se idea that Al Gore says he started the internet or whatever that stupid claim is.  My point here is not to counter the argument.  It's too fucking let.  The damage is done.  Frankly, some of the jokes are hilarious and only embed the error.


Warrren is incredibly bright.  Warren is on the right side of history.  And, none of it matters.  She is toast.

Nate, “Warren is incredibly bright. Warren is on the right side of history. And, none of it matters. She is toast. “ ....breaks your heart. What went wrong? The right side of history? I don’t understand what you mean. I like her as a candidate. The relentless attacks I ignore as gamesmanship: Ask a candidate if he likes hunting....so he’ll use the precious time he has for getting his message out, on something unrelated to the office he’s seeking.

Elizabeth Warren’s New Housing Proposal Is Actually a Brilliant Plan to Close the Racial Wealth Gap Last month, Sen. Elizabeth Warren released a $450 billion housing plan called the American Housing and Economic Mobility Act. The proposal is a comprehensive and bold step toward providing affordable housing for the most vulnerable Americans. The bill is the first since the Fair Housing Act with the explicit intent of redressing the iterative effects of our nation’s sordid history of housing discrimination. Critically, it has the potential to make a substantive dent in closing our enormous and persistent racial wealth gap. https://slate.com/business/2018/10/elizabeth-warren-housing-plan-racial-wealth-gap.html .............. Republicans should be concerned....

List the policies she favors that interfere in your private life in a major way. You might be shocked if you read a bit and strayed form the right wing Fox talking points. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_positions_of_Elizabeth_Warren Warren has criticized former President Barack Obama's support of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, believing that it gives corporations too much power and will negatively affect workers, and that the content of the agreement should not be secret. In March 2018, after President Trump announced 5 percent tariffs on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum, Warren stated that she was "not afraid of tariffs" and that she wanted "to see a trade policy that puts American workers first, puts American small businesses first, puts American consumers first." During an appearance on CNN, Warren said, "When President Trump says he’s putting tariffs on the table, I think tariffs are one part of reworking our trade policy overall" and that previous policies on trade had boosted profits at multinational corporations. On September 18, 2017 Warren voted for a bill that authorized $700 billion in defense funds. This included $640 billion for the Pentagon and an additional $60 billion for military operations in countries such as Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. This bill increased military spending by $80 billion, which far surpassed the increase requested by President Trump ($54 billion). In March 2018, Warren confirmed she was in favor of the Trump administration planning discussions with North Korea Warren supports the right of states to legalize marijuana, both for medical and recreational purposes.

Warren is like the heroin dealer in the city who gives out hundreds of hams and turkeys in the impoverished neighborhoods, and donates some thousands of $$$ to local charities. It's called window dressing. When I saw her climb onto the Hillary wagon in 2016 after that rigged primary I lost much of the respect I had for her, and all the trust. She can't be believed. She might do some good, might, but in the end it seems she will do only what Wall St lets her do. But we can be sure she will "work hard for we the people", she will be passionate in her displays of "concern". de ja vu Nothing changes if nothing changes....................

Fuck off  nate, everyone knows she can't prosecute anyone. She could have made maneuvers to force the issue, like Obama, Hillary and the rest they did not push. They cared more for themselves than they did for service to their country's citizens. I'm not blaming Warren, I'm just saying she hasn't done anything to make any of these things happen. As a Senator, there ARE actions available, avenues she could open and she didn't. She threw us some cookies in the form of toothless bills that have been slowly eroded in their short time in existence. 


Bottom line, nate, the establishment Democrats haven't done shit and they need to be ended.


You think what ever you like, I'm sure Warren is just another Clinton, Obama, weak willed subservient to Wall St., regardless of her firey stumping. Your insistent clamoring for more of the same "incremental moderate" bullshit makes me sick. You are a part of the problem, just like the idiot cons here, but like Hillary, you manage to fool yourself and some of the people here with your shtick

Which makes her support of Hillary Clinton inexcusable because there is no politician that has fought harder to advantage it.   In my view, Warren is prone to make very poor decisions for personal advantage that make her unappealing across the spectrum.  Not to everyone of course, but possibly enough to give Trump another term.  So I'd disagree with the thread title...I'd say strategically the GOP apparachik would prefer her.

Who said otherwise?  Not me. But, I also recognize forgiveness.  And, I recognize an idiot who thinks she is guilty of every conceivable sin since she supported Hillary.  You don't want tio offer forgiveness? OK.  But stop lying about her acheivements which are real and considerable.


He can't do it.  He's just a dumb ass.  Do I support her?  No, but I don't make shit up about her
