"[...] [H]er anti-Wall Street message is powerful but limiting. As Obama learned, what works in Massachusetts isn’t necessarily what will work nationally,” he added.Like the true concern troll and Liebercrat, Daschle reinforces Mitt Romney's and Scott Brown's lies about what it was that both President Obama and Elizabeth Warren were saying. Which is precisely why he exists, and why Politico and every other traditional media outlet has him in their Rolodex for comment.
“Most Americans are optimists, not pessimists. They don’t see themselves as victims. They see themselves as upwardly mobile, and that’s the product of their own sweat and labor. They work so hard to provide for their families that they naturally resent anyone they perceive as taking credit away. What they hear is ‘You didn’t work hard enough to deserve what you have.’”
At least Politico also asked some guy with a blog how real progressive Democrats are reacting to Warren's message.
“Elizabeth Warren is getting the base excited by virtue of being a genuine populist anti-vulture capitalist candidate,” wrote Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas in an email. “That has nothing to do with whether she speaks at the convention or not. For activist Democrats, she’s already a hero.” [...]What better place is there for a Democrat to actually sound like a Democrat than at the national convention? And for the Daschles of the party to actually remember what being a Democrat means and who Democrats are supposed to represent—that universe of people who will be voting in November and will be thinking about getting a fair shake. That's who Elizabeth Warren speaks to—99 percent of us.
“What her convention speech will do is the same thing the 2008 convention did for [Montana Gov.] Brian Schweitzer, and what the 2004 convention did for Barack Obama — it’ll introduce her to a wider universe of people,” Moulitsas added. “If all goes well, this will be a breakout moment for her.”
There's more of a place at the convention, in the party, and during this entire election for Elizabeth Warren's message than for the naysayers. The Daschles of the world need to figure out when to shut up.
What's the best way to shut the Daschles up? Get Warren elected.
