Earlier today, I wrote on The New York Times endorsing Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar (see In Head Scratching Move, The New York Times Endorses Not One, But Two Democrats for President), something that makes no sense and shows the listless journey the paper is on to rid themselves of Donald Trump.
With that Times endorsement, Elizabeth Warren was also dubbed her a “great storyteller” in their write up.
Senator Warren is a gifted storyteller. She speaks elegantly of how the economic system is rigged against all but the wealthiest Americans, and of “our chance to rewrite the rules of power in our country,” as she put it in a speech last month.
Apparently, she’s wanting to reinforce just how gifted she is at telling stories. You’d think lying about her heritage, lying about getting fired for being pregnant, and lying about her children going to private schools (among many other examples) would be enough, but Warren is willing to go the extra mile.
Take this latest comment from here as an example. In it, Warren proclaims that she’s the only one running for President who has executive experience.
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she was the only White House hopeful who has spent any time in the executive branch on government at an Iowa rally, seemingly forgetting about a number of her rivals.
The remarks came after an audience member asked her when she plans on using presidential authority for some of her policy agenda instead of relying on Congress.
“That’s a really good question. Let me remind you, I think, I’m the only one running for president whose actually been on the executive side,” Warren said Friday evening. “Remember, after the consumer agency was passed into law, Barack Obama, President Obama, asked me to set it up. So I set up a federal agency. We effectively went from two employees the day I walked in the door to about 1000 and spent a year getting it up and operational.”
I guess she’s proud to have ballooned an unconstitutional, useless agency into 1000 employees? That would seem like a rather dark mark on someone’s record, but I digress.
The issue here is that several of the Democratic opponents she shared a stage with last week have experience on “the executive side.” Perhaps she’s heard of Joe Biden? He was the Vice President afterall. Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders also has executive experience as mayors. If you include the private side of things, Steyer is quite literally an executive of his mult-billion dollar empire.
What Warren is doing is a common game by do-nothing Senator. They know they lack the relevant experience of leading people and organizing an administration. After all, they spend most of their time playing on their phones in the Senate chamber and renaming post offices. The natural move is to stretch and try to paint oneself as more than they are. Warren is guilty of that here, and in doing so she makes herself look stupid by forgetting that Joe stinking Biden is one of the people she’s running against.
Oh yeah, and if she were the nominee, she’d be running against an incumbent President, who quite literally has the most relevant executive experience possible.
The idea that Warren is a gifted speaker or is actually any good at running for President is a media created myth. She’s terrible at this. There’s not an authentic bone in her body and that’s made worse by the fact that she doesn’t own who she actually is, which is a wealthy, white liberal from Massachusetts.
