  •  It's insulting to suggest that Warren (12+ / 0-)

    is not a foreign policy expert. So, all of the Iran pro-war crowd in congress who are now attempting to kill the six power agreement with Iran are the real expert? That's a joke most of these clown are the same scum who promoted the war on Iraq. And now they have more expertise than Warren?

    Obviously Warren wins that debate among all those people who really prefer peace to war throughout the world. While all politicians claim to want peace, it's very easy for warmongers to lie. That's done in all wars.

    War is costly. Peace is priceless!

      Elizabeth Warren IS an expert on economics and consumer protection. She has studied and researched and taught it and is now applying what she knows to the law. We are blessed to have someone with this amount of focus and skills in the position she's in right now. And the position she was in prior to this in the administration.
      She has not had the exposure to defense or foreign policy that Patty Murray has had. That's not a failing on her part, it's simply what is.
      And Warren has been particularly quiet on FP and questions of war and peace, which I assumed meant that she didn't have a focus on those issues and so rather than spouting uninformed opinions she listened instead. That's what smart people do.
      I further assume that she would find people willing to educate her on these issues and am pleased to see that she wasn't bamboozled by the typical Beltway bullsh!t.

      If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
