    It isn't actually time for anything other than a competant President that cares more about America and it's people than his own purse.

    Yup, that's why we are lucky to have Trump.

    "Despite being cheered as a progressive hero, Warren’s entire career is filled with politically opportune waffling and a distinct lack of a moral compass.

    Here are just a few of the lowlights Warren would prefer you didn’t know about.


    • She was a registered Republican until 1996 (that doesn’t get talked about much, does it?). Warren claimed she left the party because it was becoming too cozy with Wall Street. Ironically, she is now backing a candidate who got rich giving paid speeches to Wall Street execs.
    • Warren finds religion when it suits her. She speaks glowingly about her United Methodist heritage and Christian values to appeal to middle America. But she enthusiastically supports abortion (including public funding for it). The United Methodist Church, for the record, categorically rejects abortion as a means of birth control and preaches the “sanctity of unborn human life.”
    • Warren preaches about the ills of the banking industry and the importance of financial responsibility. But she spent a good part of her career training the next generation of bankruptcy lawyers – you know, the ones who run cable TV ads at 2 a.m.
    • Despite her crocodile tears for people who lost their homes during the real estate market crash, Warren and her family bought and sold foreclosed houses for big profits.
    • Worse still, Warren was extremely critical of Hillary Clinton when it was politically fashionable. In a 2003 book, Warren bluntly accused Clinton of putting the interests of fat-cat donors ahead of constituents while Clinton was serving as senator.

    I wish my local diner served waffles like these! And this is just the short list."

    https://thehornnews.com/unfit-serve-shocking-truth-elizabeth-warren/

    And this doesn't include her false claims to AmerIndian heritage or her outrageous statement about entrepreneurs not getting rich on their own.

    I'm not sure it's even worth debunking her claims about the minimum wage, but just in case, here you go:

    "Minimum wage advocates often claim that a minimum wage is needed to lift struggling families out of poverty. Not true. As the Bureau of Labor Statistics has noted, the majority of minimum wage workers are teenagers, college students, or the second-earner in a two-income family — not a poor household head struggling to support his or her family."

    "And make no mistake, the economic damage will be significant. In 2014, the Congressional Budget Office estimated that raising the national minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour in 2016 and then allowing it to rise by inflation from there would cost as many as 1 million workers their jobs. One million.

    Yes, wages would go up by a big amount: $31 billion. But only 19% of that would go to families earning below poverty. Fully 29% would go to families earning three times the poverty rate. So raising families from poverty isn't a real argument for a minimum wage hike. It's a false emotional appeal."

    The drop in standard of living is due to the Democrats, specifically the "progressives". Princess Pocahontas Warren is a leader of that failed ideology.

    You're looking for some modern-day political Jesus Christ to save America?

    Good luck on that one.

    Elizabeth is one helluva smart lady, and you are obviously misinformed of her most recent pronouncements. You should get on her mailing list, from where I obtained the excerpt I posted here above. (Which shows exactly where the lady stands in America's political firmament.)

    Your ignorance of her political stance is nobody's fault but your own. She is definitively Left-of-center where in the very same vein as Barack Obama. Only she's a woman.

    And THAT, I'll bet, is your problem ...

    We dont need a “female” president any more than we needed a blavk president in 2008

    Warren is no more qualified because of her genitalia than obama was because of his skin color

    There are lot of things you evidently haven't "seen", if all you got is this drivel above to show because Hillary Clinton is one smart lady.

    And clearly much smarter than you ...

    I will remind you that she DID win the popular-vote, which goes forgotten in this debate-temple of misogynous commentary regarding the ex-First Lady.

    It was the undemocratic trickery of the Electoral College that maneuvered Donald Dork into the presidency.

    (Not bad, 5 presidents over two-hundred years who made it into the White House when they had lost the popular vote!)

    And most Americans think, "'Well, that's the way the cookie crumbles". But the EC is NOT a cookie.

    It is a perversion of the popular-vote that is the ONLY good/true/correct/honest way to elect any politician.

    As demonstrated in every political election in America except one. The Presidency ... !

    Well, it would be nonetheless nice to "see first hand" how well an American First-Lady as PotUS would do, doncha think?

    So far, given all other nations who have had a female executive (including presently Great Britain!), supposedly the Greatest Nation on Earth hasn't ever had the balls to elect a female president.

    Pun Intended ... !

    lol

    I know very well where she stands, and the only people dumber than her in Congress are Pelosi and Waters.

    Warren's lifetime ACU rating is 3.17%, making her one of the most extremist Democrats in the Senate, although since no Democrat rates higher than 8%, that pretty much makes all Democrats extremist. The Republicans are far more varied, measuring anywhere from 48-98% lifetime ratings.

    Why not. The more the merrier!

    She's one helluva smart lady. I don't particularly care for her politics - but that is not the question.

    The question is, "When will women get fed-up enough with the lackluster political competence of some male presidents and try to do something about it!"

    Where's our Merkel? Where's our Theresa May? Where's our Indira Gandi?

    There are women who have presence in both chambers of Congress, but not any that care to run for President. And this is likely due to manner in which that particular office is filled ...

    Merkel is busy letting the indigenous Germans be overrun by Muslims.
    Theresa May is busy defying the British voters wish for withdrawal from the EU.
    The oh-so-peace loving Indira Gandi was busy building nuclear bombs so India could join the nuclear arms race.

    Nope, Germany is currently in a manpower shortage so they are training them.

    On the contrary. Brexit will have a massive negative effect on British exports, which they deserve for their stoopidity.

    She's just trying to minimize the damage.

    They'll be back within 5 years, and until them they are seeking the same relationship with the EU that Norway presently has. Meaning, to protect Britain's exports to the EU.

    Which she exploded against nobody.

    More blah, blah, blah.

    Moving right along ...

    Is this thread officially yet another excuse for why Hillary Clinton lost a slam-dunk election ???

    As even Paul Ryan pointed out.... "Wisconsin is actually a nice place to visit in the Fall."

    No, I don't want a woman president just to see how well a female can do in the role.

    When we elect our first female president I hope it is because she is the best choice, not because we thought it would be "nice" to see, or because we thought we were showing "balls" by electing her.

    Well we can't use that word ignorance here anymore so I will deal with your lack of knowledge.

    Her entire history is made up of reproachable aspects from her days in Arkansas to the White House and even today. Trying to blame her own failures on men is laughable at best.

    A plan that not even a single Democrat would vote and a commission that had very questionable beginnings and dealings as with everything with Clinton.

    "
    WASHINGTON — White House aides raised questions about how to structure and describe then-first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton’s role in the 1993 attempt to overhaul the health care system, including whether she would be considered a government employee and whether the group’s work could be kept secret, documents released Friday show.

    The lawyerly exchanges among aides in President Bill Clinton’s White House include suggested talking points to back up the administration’s position that Hillary Clinton could head up a task force on health care reform without triggering a federal open-meetings requirement.

    Scores of documents about the failed health care effort were among about 10,000 pages of documents released Friday by the Clinton Presidential Library — the last batch in a series released over the past eight months. The trove of unclassified memos, correspondence, phone logs and other papers initially withheld by Clinton charts his administration’s responses to a series of scandals and setbacks.

    http://bangordailynews.com/2014/10/...s-reveal-how-white-house-dealt-with-scandals/

    And don't get me started on her role in WhiteWater/Castle Grande


    Which of course is a total misrepresentation of any American's point of view.
