Comments on: Why it makes no sense for Warren to leave http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/06/01/why-it-makes-no-sense-for-warren-to-leave/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Chivelry http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/06/01/why-it-makes-no-sense-for-warren-to-leave/comment-page-1/#comment-27231 Wed, 01 Jun 2011 15:17:52 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=8477#comment-27231 Think we’ve become a nation that is managed on stealing everything that’s not nailed down. Liz Warren represents a tough nail, that will require a pry bar to loosen.
It’s not mental midgitry, more a case of”why would anyone stop whats made so many millionaires”.. when wealth is the only measure in a society.
All participants are locked into the merry-go-round.

Most of the Democrats would like the same person as the Republicans since that would ensure that the banks would continue flowing money into their campaign chests.

At some point the financial Humpty-Dumpty will be fall over-weighted with so much greed that all the King’s horses and all the King’s men won’t be able to put it back together again, unlike after 2008-2009. I wonder what the world will look like after that event. Our politicans of both parties are failing miserably to look beyond their own next election campaign. We are a giant nation being managed by mental midgets.

Representatives voted against raising the ceiling because those whom they represent demanded they do so. They need to be able to point to their voting record in their next primary and electoral contests. So who are the dolts again? America has exactly the government that it deserves.

They thought that the GOP’s plan – to show that Democrats aren’t concerned about the debt and deficits – would bear heavily in 2012 elections.

Never mind of course, the GOP plan cuts one way or the other. After all, they actually believe their rhetoric that the debt ceiling will have little or no consequence, and that cutting spending = growth.

Kick Steny Hoyer out…that was bad strategy and it puts Democrats in the spot of having to defend their vacillating opinion.

In wishing to [finally] protect the middle class from being scammed and pillaged, and standing her ground for consumer rights, she is called a doctrinaire leftist?

Does the right think it unbecoming of a woman to be so tough minded, focused and verbose without backing down and kowtowing? Or, is it simply because you get more funds raised if you balk at backing a person who is hated by wall street?

Otherwise Obama would just be sacrificing a great public servant for no purpose at all.”

The fact that Warren is a doctrinaire leftist doesn’t enter into this?
