“This means Warren: Obama backs challenger to Hillary”
So. A fake pragmatist and real Marxist has decided, quietly, to back a fake Indian and real Marxist against another fake centrist and real Marxist. Oh, the intrigue! Except that no matter how you slice it, the Democrats are looking once again to nominate a Marxist. Which should do wonders for the economy.
Better hope Hillary doesn’t have any dirt on you, Mr Obama. And as for you, Ms Warren, all I can say is I’ve been looking for an excuse to bring back Billy Jack. And Ward Churchill is like, so 2005-ish. NYP:
President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me.
Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago.
A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democratic Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008.
— There’s another wing to the Democratic Party? Well, no matter: if there is, Jeb Bush will energize them for the Democrats.
Thanks to her outspoken stand against big banks and the top 1 percent, Warren is the darling of progressives. She won her Senate seat thanks to millions of dollars in donations from outside Massachusetts, including from rich environmentalists and Hollywood celebrities.
The irony, it burns.
The only upside I see to this — besides the return of Billy Jack — is that, should Warren somehow manage to win, we can all collectively remind her that she didn’t earn that. And then giggle through our tears.
