Question: How far left is Elizabeth Warren?
Before a murderer in Colorado decided to change the subject, an incredible shift in the national conversation, one so significant that it threatened to undo millions of dollars of ad buys from the White House, was taking place concerning the president’s remarks in Virginia.
While not considered newsworthy by the MSM, those words, pounced upon by the Romney Campaign, threaten to put the president in an untenable political position. This forced the White House and it’s allies to attempt to spin them away.
Unfortunately for their efforts: Barack Obama was NOT the first national pol to make this point. Former Obama Administration Elizabeth Warren made it nearly a year ago.
While the national publicity for her race against Scott Brown, a race the Democrats consider their best hope for a Senate Pick up, has died down, her popularity in general remains high with liberals, and the Hollywood fundraising base, A base that gave her speech over 900,000 views.
Given the President’s campaign and money woes I submit and suggest, needing to excite a depressed base, his team made a deliberate decision to appropriate Warren’s words based on their popularity among the far left & media.
That’s the irony, the Obama campaign deliberately did this to themselves but that’s not the final irony…
Elizabeth Warren yesterday came to the defense her former boss President Obama’s controversial statement that businesses’ owners can’t take credit for their success, repeating her own campaign line that, “nobody got rich on their own.”
Warren’s reiteration of her statement — which became an iconic and controversial cornerstone of her campaign — comes as conservatives have leapt on Obama for saying “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
And that’s what’s so funny:
As campaign after campaign runs from Barack Obama as Nancy Pelosi urges candidates to avoid the president re-nomination convention for their electoral survival how does the president react to Elizabeth Warren the one candidate willing to back him up?
He is running away from her, for the very same reason.
If that doesn’t scream…
…I’d like to know what does?
Exit question: If Elizabeth Warren is too left for Barack Obama ya think she might be too left to beat Scott Brown?
