Super Woman Elizabeth Warren Exposes Scott Walker With One Tweet
By Gloria Christie on March 2, 2015
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Okla.) knocked out presidential hopeful Gov. Scott Walker with one virtual punch. In less than 140 characters, Warren’s tweet ripped off Walker’s moderate mask revealing his true extreme conservative face.
At the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Walker disclosed what he thought of the 100,000 Wisconsin firefighters and teachers who protested against his union-busting, comparing his state’s citizens to ISIS.
“We need to have someone who leads and ultimately will send a message that not only will we protect American soil, but…freedom-loving people anywhere else in the world.We need that confidence. If I can take on a hundred thousand protesters, I can do the same across the world.”
Then with just a few keystrokes, Sen. Warren destroyed Walker by tweeting:
“If Scott Walker sees 100,000 teachers & firefighters as his enemies, maybe it’s time we take a closer look at his friends”.
You see, Walker is a Koch boy. So that is one of the only reasons that the Wisconsin protestors, including those very teachers and firefighters, were unsuccessful in recalling him. The Darth Vader money prevailed.
Of course Walker claimed all of the credit for attacking the unions, but what else does he have? Certainly the economy sucks in Wisconsin, so he can’t stand on that. Also, he was a complete flop on his trip abroad, so his foreign policy is out of the question. Now, Elizabeth Warren has given the Democrats a one-line zinger that will help undermine Walker’s credibility.
With barely a breath after punching out Walker, Warren hit the wonky NAFTA-esque trade agreement. She cut right into the heart of all that is wrong with it by writing an Op-Ed for the Washington Post titled, The Trans-Pacific Partnership Clause Everyone Should Oppose, on Feb. 25. In her piece she states:
“The name may sound mild, but don’t be fooled. Agreeing to ISDS in this enormous new treaty would tilt the playing field in the United States further in favor of big multinational corporations. Worse, it would undermine U.S. sovereignty.”
I like Elizabeth Warren because she isn’t afraid to take on the big boys, Democrat or Republican. She is also a heat-seeking missile against all that is wrong with the U.S. economy.
Thanks to this wonder woman, we won’t soon forget that Walker threw his own citizens under the bus. Also, that she has taken on the latest trade agreement in the making. What’s next for Elizabeth Warren?
