Elizabeth Warren Warrin’ With Wall Street

The JP Morgan rumpus has been a godsend for U.S. Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren (D-Indian Smokes). It’s given her a chance to get off the defensive over her ethnic heritage as a maybe Native American,  and emphasize her political heritage as a consumer advocate.

And now there’s a new radio ad from Warren to reinforce her stance (via BuzzFeed):

 

Transcript:

Did you see the headline? One of America’s biggest banks lost $2 billion in just a few weeks. Even now, Wall Street banks that got bailed out are still at it, gambling recklessly. This is Elizabeth Warren. I stood up to big banks. I took on their army of lobbyists and helped win the fight for a consumer protection agency. But there’s still more to do. Wall Street isn’t going to change its ways until Washington gets serious about strong oversight and real accountability. No special deals. We need a tough cop on the beat to make sure that nobody steals your purse on Main Street or your pension on Wall Street. Problem is, in Washington money talks — and Wall Street has plenty of money to spread around. So Wall Street gets all the special breaks while working families get hammered. That’s what I want to change.

Second only, of course, to changing the topic.

    John my only feeling about Elizabeth claim about Native American blood is. As the daughter of a welder and a home maker, the eldest of 5 children who like my siblings had to put our selves through college one course at a time. I wish to hell I had thought of that. Back in the 80’s I don’t think they would have checked as hard back then.

    Fun fact: Bill John Baker, Principal Chief of Cherokee Nation, is 1/32nd Cherokee: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_John_Baker

      Turns out that responsible research organization can’t find evidence that Warren is even that.

      Her wound is self-inflicted.
