Elizabeth Warren Launches Book Tour with Possible Eye on Presidency

(Quin Hillyer, Liberty Headlines) Some observers think U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, the outspoken uber-“progressive” Democrat from Massachusetts, is putting her presidential cart before her senatorial horse.

Warren is starting a book tour that many believe is as much about positioning for a presidential race in 2020 as it is for her re-election to the Senate in 2018, even though she swears otherwise.

Her poll numbers, though, aren’t very good, indicating (at least by some analyses) that she is no shoo-in for re-election to the Senate. In January, a respected poll for TV station WBUR found that more of her home-state voters think it’s time to “give someone else a chance” than those who think she “deserves re-election.” Earlier this month, Morning Consult found that her “net” approval ratings (positive minus negative) at home, at 18 percent, are among the 25 lowest of the 100 senators – and with six of those doing worse than her experiencing abnormally low ratings after bruising 2016 campaigns.

Granted, Massachusetts is an overwhelmingly Democratic state where self-described independents don’t necessarily hold the balance of power they hold elsewhere, but another WBUR poll, out four days ago, still evinces reason for Warren to worry. In small towns in Massachusetts, not just Republicans but independents hold negative views of her – by a 54-33 margin.

Warren insists that her new book, out this week, is not a precursor to a White House run in 2020, but merely a call to arms for Middle America. The book is titled “This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class.” But she won’t give a definitive “no” when asked if she will eventually run for president.

And no wonder. For hardline liberals, Warren remains one of the most popular politicians in the country, the heir apparent to the national following attracted by avowed socialist Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. The liberal site Politicus USA praised Warren on Tuesday for “pulverize[ing] Republicans with the one question that Trump fears the most,” namely one effectively comparing tax breaks and lack of tax transparency for the rich while “everybody else pays.”

In addition to her book tour at major venues across the country, Warren will be the keynote speaker in front of some 10,000 people next weekend at a Detroit fundraiser for the NAACP, and is also making the rounds of network news shows.

Conservatives aren’t letting her go unscathed, with various groups on the right sponsoring major research into her record, looking for embarrassing material to tout in the media. Much of the research will be on policy substance, but other parts of it will try to build her reputation as a flake and a scam artist – beginning with her much-mocked claim to be of American Indian ancestry in order to gain preferential treatment in academia. President Donald Trump famously and repeatedly referred to Warren as “Pocahontas” during last year’s campaign, and conservative columnists now have gone a step further, calling her “Fauxcahontas” instead. (“Faux” is French for “false.”)

From either side, Warren clearly is seen as a galvanizing figure, with even liberal billionaire Warren Buffett once pronouncing her too divisive to be an effective national candidate. And, unlike Sanders, Sen. Warren is not seen as having the odd charm of eccentric authenticity.

So, to conservative eyes, Warren looks like both a nut and a faker. Conservatives clearly hope to reinforce that image of her among the broader public.

    Great idea!!!!
    By all means, DNC, put Pocohantas on your next Primary ticket!!!
    We can all have fun watching her lose just like Shrillary!!!

  • Kim

    Oh please run Lizzie…That would be must see TV when debates begin..LMAO Put Maxine Waters as your running mate…double the pleasure.

    • susiejg

      That would be a genius twosome! Maxine and her connection to (fake) Urkraine Prime Minister who told her was was concerned about Limpopo, which is a non-existent country/entity. Max talked classified details with the (fake) PM! Told him how Hilary “was doing” etc. Poor Hilary.

    • America1st

      A great alternative running mate would be Tim Kaine. He knocked it out of the park in the VP debates. He personally redefines the word AWE-SUM. Look at the crowds he drew at his rallies!

      • Rodney Steward

        I think there was 20 at his last rally!

        • America1st

          And some where around 100+ press to record the rousing success of Kaine’s inspiring persuasion, personality and charm.

          (Sarcasm toggle now in off mode)

          • Rodney Steward

            LOL, I think he was a Hybrid between Warren and Waters, all 3 = STUPID!! 🙂

          • America1st

            We have a”winning 2020 ticket Warren-Kaine with Maxine as Sec of State

            What could possibly go wrong?

          • Rodney Steward

            Chelsea Clinton!!!!!!!!!!! :-(((((((((

          • America1st

            Whoa. I have some standards that I simply refuse to compromise.

            Besides, Chelsea is at her best when she tweets seemingly political insults. She should make that a full time profession. Entertainment value is very high; however, there are certain health risks – how many times a day can you really split your guts laughing over the wisdom held in the responses. Personnally, I have to limit to no more than 1 or 2 Chelsea tweets a day. Any more than that and I’ve lost productivity for the entire day.

          • Rodney Steward

            She, like her mother is truly one of a kind, but she actually can top her mother! She knows how to lie, tweet after many lessons, not sure she has the killing part down pat yet, but she is very slow, like Obama she still doesn’t know who her daddy be, and by far is one of the most UGLIEST people to walk the planet, and has the IQ of Pelosi and Waters, he$$ she just might fit in!! :-/

          • America1st

            Her tweet responses indicate that for someone with an education she is dumb as a small box of rocks (pebbles). This country cannot survive under another Clinton in any office. 40 years of Clintons is 50 years too many.

          • Rodney Steward

            Amen brother, 50 is about their death toll ain’t it! They’re sick, dumb, crazy, and stupid, but they will have yo a$$ killed!! 🙂 And no, that box of rocks is BIG!!

          • America1st

            That’s why they are known as the Clinton Crime Family with continuous layers of corruption and deceit covered with one lie over another endless lie.

            The great thing about Chelsea is she represents the Democrats best offering of new blood to build their future upon.

            Trump must rally Republicans to unify to overcome legislative obstructions. 8 to 10 more Senators in 2018 would help solve that problem and change Schumer from minority leader to simply insignificant.

          • Rodney Steward

            I totally agree, got to win GA. right off the bat but Reps. are not turning out to vote! I’m worried about the Senate, too many people seem content with the out come of Trump getting the house! But the constant lies and rioting is playing into the hands of the Dems. with these gov. raised, by OUR SCHOOL systems cupcakes! When these gov. robots are lead to the voting booth and told who to vote for, we’ve lost our country and future! Just LOOK at our schools, they don’t teach anymore, they brainwash, just like Hitler and Stallins! And Schumer is trying so hard to be like old Harry Reid, but he just don’t have it!!

          • Lazer

            Remember that Chelsey had a leading roll in the corrupt Clinton Foundation whose name probably got her the Stanford degree – money talks . .. . she learned the BS from her parents.

          • Rodney Steward

            Absolutely, she was raised in the BS, but she’s just not the brightest light bulb in the room, and you said it first thing, M-O-N-E-Y!!

          • Fed up!

            Talk about a face that would be good for birth control. One look at that and all males would have ED.

          • Rodney Steward

            A SUPER AMEN to that my friend, If they would send her to Iran the’d give us back all the money and GOLD Obama gave them!

          • Craig Vandertie

            Come on people, how can you not have the crap de les crap as a presidential candidate and leave Nancy Pelosi out of at least 1 of the primary presidential positions?

          • America1st

            Pelosi is certainly qualified for White House Cheif Of Staff primarily because she thinks Bush is still President; however, a strong argument can be made that only Pelosi has the capability and capacity to maintain her current level of incompetence as the House Minority Leader of the Most Insignificance?

        • Fed up!

          I believe it was 19 🤣

          • Rodney Steward

            Probably was, I just took a guess! 🙂

      • David Hansen

        Tim Kane is a fruitcake just like Warren. Neither one is qualified to do anything except spread fertilizer.

        • America1st

          Exactly, that’s why the Dems need them on their 2020 ticket. MAGA

          • David Hansen

            America1st That’s an excellent point. I never thought of it that way. Tim Kane could be Secretary of the inferior.

          • America1st

            With his debating skills, I still prefer him as the 2020 Inferior VP candidate
            Lol

          • David Hansen

            America1st. You’re right again. As a debater Kane had the skill of a thug.

    • Fed up!

      Great ticket! The Fake and the Racist!

    • Craig Vandertie

      No, Nancy Pelosi as her running mate.

  • mike

    Any one remotely thinking/considering about voting for her must see a psychiatrist first.

  • needful

    lizzy make much wampum on book full of bulls**t!!

    • susiejg

      . . .or buffalo***t!

      • needful

        or just plain s**t.

  • Dean Smith

    God I feel like I’m watching The Twilight Zone. Yeah, good luck.

    • TOM HENRY

      The Outer Limits!!!

  • Steve Harr

    No one liked a person who got 1%, even a wanna be Indian can’t manufacture votes

  • george briar

    looks like the fake Indian got into some fire water and is out on her loony war path. Anyone that votes for this fruitcake needs professional help asap.

  • PBHayes

    Elizabeth Warren is living a fantasy if she thinks informed Americans will vote for her. Of course the leftist Marxist clowns will vote for her but that’s it. She is an absurdity.

    • nocbsfan

      Hope she cries out I Love ♪♫♫♪ Obama ♫ then she three votes hers,obama’s and maybe hillary

  • Ron Gonshorowski

    Lizzie Warren gave her voting machine 40 whacks and it still would not record a vote for her. So she gave another one 41 and the hatchet broke.

  • John

    Pocahontas doesn’t stand a chance. She’s such a lefty she don’t make right turns. She is like a screeching librarian.

    • susiejg

      Oh, but she believes highly in FREE SCREECH!

    • Follow Me Boys

      Mass voted for her. This state
      Is so fu@#ed up. They would literally vote for a Mullah. Remember the Boston Strong? Over a million allowed a couple rags to lock them up in their own homes. They talk smack is all they do and allow people who do not know one word of English to collect thousands while vets are in the streets.

  • TOM HENRY

    Let Lizard run for the Senate and we will watch her get embarrassed and offended and even more so if she runs for the Presidency. OMG the good times and the laughs are just beginning!!!

  • susiejg

    She is a FIRM believer in FREE SCREECH!

    • Rodney Steward

      But no one speaks her language! ?/#@%*’)(>/<

  • Wayne Withrow

    Only a idiot would vote for a idiot.

  • therealworld

    Warren is the BEST choice for the Democrat Ticket. She knows how to Lie, Cover Up, Use a Tampon, and Quote from the Quran. Both Illegals Left here in 2020 are a shoe in for their support.

  • therealworld

    DNC Ticket for 2020 should be Warren / Hitlery. I would love to watch that one go Nuclear. .

  • Gym

    Lotsa negative views from both sides on this psychotic beeeeyotch.

    • Rodney Steward

      What happens when Dems. run the country for 8 years!! CHAOS!!!!!

  • buddman

    I hear Lezzy Warren wants to use the Cleveland Indians mascot for her campaign poster!!!

  • ImOffendedTreatMeSpecial

    Pocahontas Warren has almost as much credibility as Hilldolph Clinton.

  • nbdawg1950

    The book can be found in the Ficton sections in bookstores.

  • spike

    She so obviously lied in order to get a coveted position at “Harvard” – in spite of the fact that this was exposed when she ran for the senate in Massachuetts, the Americans of that state were not interested in such a blatant issue of integrity and elected her big time!! Are all of us so lacking in integrity ourselves that we can ignore it in our public agents?! On many levels, it is a scary time in the USA.

  • Right, this Country needs the mother of the occupy movement as president. How she beat Scott Brown is proof of political corruption. Time for her to go back to the reservation.

  • Craig Vandertie

    Maybe the Demoncommiecrats should consider putting Charlie Sheen on their ticket, their considering of Warren on the ticket only goes prove all Demoncommiecrats are psychotic or mentally incapacitated.
