    apparently, the only ancestor of hers that can actually be documented as existing during the "trail of tears" was some completely anglo/white dude who apparently was in the militia or some paramilitary unit responsible for driving the Native Americans westward.

    And the guy was probably either a slave owner- or far more likely given his probable economic status wished that he did.

    The trouble is ideology often runs afoul with pragmatic compromise. I don't know enough of what may have went into her decision making, but I understand compromise often makes hypocrites of us all.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I think there's a third answer, yes but to be expected. It's part of her job now.

    All I've ever seen you post on this issue is same regurgitated let wing talking points that have been debunked again and again on this very site.

    Ill give you some advice, if you DON'T know what you're talking about, then keep your mouth shut.

    Especially on this issue.

    You realize Clinton was the source of most of the "deregulation " that led to the Crisis becoming so systemic.

    From the GSEs to CDSs.
    IF knowledge was the only thing that counted , then there would be NO Debate Politics , IMO . NO man completely knows his subject , that has NEVER quieted him ..for me .. I just add in a little "IMO" ..

    I don't know about this issue specifically, but I'm on the fence about her. It's like she flip-flops between actually honestly being for the average person then coming out and saying typical extreme politician crap.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Re: Is Elizabeth Warren a hypocrite?

    Oh Jeez...of course she is a hypocrite.

    Imo, 95+% of American federal politicians are hypocrites.

    And the fault lies mostly with the masses...they allow hypocrisy and flat out lying to rise to the top in U.S. politics whilst asking for the simplest and most superficial demands of their representatives.

    Look in the mirror America...there is the source of almost all your political problems. It's also the solution...unfortunately, as I see it, most American voters are too stupid and/or too ignorant to even know what America needs.
    Which is bad enough. But the really sad part is the average American voter seems to be staggeringly arrogant - they think they know it all when a quick chat with most of them proves they know almost nothing (politically).
    But instead of recognizing this, they just blame the politicians and assume the fault is in those they elect rather the those that do the electing.
    There are plenty of Americans that would make wonderful POTUS's...but the electorate are generally too moronic and/or politically useless to recognize them.

    I enjoy the far right extremists going off the Abyss of the Grand Canyon at the very mention of Warren's name.


    These are two blatant irrational lies about Warren and you knew that as you posted them .

    Re: Is Elizabeth Warren a hypocrite?

    Is she a politician, then the answer is automatically yes. Camon people, can't we ask intellectually interesting questions!
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
