    Sorry Eric....

    Jobs ? Not really. .

    The last Jobs numbers showed there were 150 thousand less full time positions, and the Labor participation rate is at a record low as this administration shrinks the unemployment numbers by shrinking the pool of those that it counts as employed.

    Foodstamp use is up 40 percent and so are poverty rates. Child poverty in some US Cities is 50 percent.

    The Stock market being propped up with unending FED stimulus isn't really a accomplishment.

    Forcing investors out of safe fixed yield investments and into the equities markets and falsely inflating the value of assets just drives up costs on everything from food to Housing.

    The Stock market is absolutely disconnected from the economic conditions we now have to deal with.

    Qe incentivizes speculation, not investment that would lead to real amd substantial Jobs growth.

    She is most likely lying about her own statements in the quote the OP posted.

    Either that, or she is clueless about the Dodd-Frank legislation she helped craft.

    Sure it matters. You've called Warren a liar who appeals to low-information voters. Knowing who you (and people like you) support will give us a glimpse into lofty conservative standards.

    But if you're afraid to say, I understand.

    Or as is infinitely more likely from the wording of your post, you don't know.

    Elizabeth Warren is lying. Either that, or clueless. I don't think she is clueless, because she is on the Senate Banking committee and she played a role in implementing Dodd Frank.

    So I'm guessing she is lying.

    I don't know if she is clueless or lying. I know what she is saying isn't correct, but my guess she is not being clear with all the facts.

    If she is clueless, you probably wouldn't want her has your candidate. If she is lying, then she is playing you. It's really nothing new when it comes to politics, but hey, that's the nature of the business.

    * sigh *.....

    Warrens charges of Bank and Wall street corruption as she supposedly represents the poor and disenfranchised makes her one of the biggest hypocrites out there.

    She relies on her supporters naivete and their refusal to look past their narrow minded ideology to get the traction she needs to make a complete fool out of himself on a regular basis.

    Since the 2008 Financial crisis she hasn't once criticized the two most corrupt and influential Financial entities involved in the Subprime mortgage crisis.

    Fannie and Freddie were exempt from SEC reporting requirements all the way up to 2006. They were also exempt from State and Local and Federal taxes.

    That was when the 2004 SEC investigation ended exposing the massive amount of corruption at the two GSEs.

    Fannie Mae was fined 400 Million dollars and finnaly agreed to start submitting their quarterly financial statements. ( All publicly traded companies have to submit quarterly statements to the SEC )

    In 2011 the SEC started a new investigation into Fannie and Freddies corruption stating that the two GSEs with held from their SEC quarterly filings 90 percent of their worthless debt

    Fannie and Freddie were using their 4 Billion dollar line of cheap credit from the US Treasury, credit that no Bank had access to, to buy up hundreds of Billions of dollars of Securities backed by Subprime loans.

    Their decision to withhold this information and their massive amount of purchases influenced investors and created demand for a product that was toxic and that was distributed throughout the Worlds Capital markets.

    Thats officially unprecendeted Securities fraud

    Not one person has been thrown in jail, brought up on charges and Pocahontas Warren hasn't said one word about it.

    So she targets Wall street and the Banks and people like you eat it up.

    Not me, I see right through her selective outrage.
