I asked why people were so against Warren in a separate thread and never did get a satisfactory explanation.
I do not like Warren because she lied to get ahead in college and deprived someone truly worthy of that scholarship. She continued to play this up for her advantage. Of the following won't be satisfactory to you because you already have formed opinions and will dismiss the below because it is outside the bubble of comfort.
I do not think she will be a good commander in chief because we have not had a tough progressive since Teddy Roosevelt. Pres. Obama did get Bin Laden but also let Isis grow and created an environs in Africa and Libya where Isis will rise again. I also wonder how all these socialist policies will play out here because in a lot of places in the world they are failing. All these plans are great but unless they win both houses they are going nowhere.
She is certainly smart but I don't see her as tough. I think Pres. Trump is a dicey Commander in Chief and I think Warren and Bernie elements of the democratic party would be just as dicey in the opposite direction. Experience also used to important for the presidency, people seem to forget most of her experience is taking on companies and isn't she only a first time senator?
Is it just me or do these female candidates sound shrill, when on the debate stage? I hate that tone. I have had female bosses that were great leaders but they did not have this tone.
I have always found it interesting that people find far left politicians unelectable but far right politicians as acceptable
I am sure that we have different views of the far right and far left as I am from the Midwest. Kasich and even Pres. Trump are not truly far right. Republicans are not very conservative right now. I don't see conservatism as a bad thing either. But many of us don't have a party to represent us these days. The far left and far right is nauseating to me.
If Warren gets the nod as the candidate, there will actually be people in the middle that prefer a racist, xenophobe, mysogynist, narcissist, compulsive liar, autocrat Trump with a possible slipping mental accuity over a genuinely intelligent, good person that happens to have very liberal leanings. I just do not get that.
Warren is a liar as well on the heritage, so I don't get your support for her. To me this does not make her a good person and trustworthy as she lied to get ahead and she has the acumen to know exactly to know what she was doing. Is she as bad as Pres. Trump, nope, but she is not the angel you paint her to be.
I would vote for a third party if she and president Trump were the options. I realize Pres. Trump and I do not share your existential angst that he is in office. I trust our system to work and it has so far, to shelter us from extremes. I know many do not like him because he lies and that is bad. However, all politicians are liars as I have illustrated in Warren's case.
Also, a lot of these Dems place race politics and have policies which have not worked well to advance people. They talk a good game but what are the results? Nothing. I don't care for that as well and find that just as bad as someone who won't condemn racists because they have worked hard to institutionalize poverty and foster dependency. All these nice things like Student Loan Forgiveness, free this or that is nothing more than a bribe to get your vote. Pres. Trump is indefensible, I won't even try but I can hopefully poke some holes in your bubble so you realize that most all politicians are dirty and both political parties care more about themselves than America.
I am an independent and have voted democrat many times. But this modern democratic party is not my cup of tea. Less about the middle class, and more about making people dependent on government and the dole. Of course, I imagine many people like that idea because people are lazy more often than not. They also seem more concerned with non citizens than us already here. Free health care for folks when the people here do not have already have it.
But to make this clear the only people that care about Scaramucci are liberals because they hope this will damage Pres. Trump. He is not going to sway many on the right because he is a joke and truth be told should never have been in the Oval Office in any capacity. The real stuff people ought to be talking about right now is McCabe and Comey who have been exposed this week. But the news cycle did not cover it because it does not fit the narrative or their agenda and undermines the Steele dossier which they embraced.https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/justice-department-inspector-general-provides-report-to-congress-on-andrew-mccabe/2018/04/13/ce367c4c-3f36-11e8-974f-aacd97698cef_story.html
