Elizabeth Warren praised for showing ‘no mercy’ in hearings; Ted Cruz deemed ‘nasty’

As Twitchy reported, freshman Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was the subject of a handful of hit pieces today following his aggressive questioning of Defense Secretary nominee Chuck Hagel. “Cruz has gone too far,” wrote Ruth Marcus. Frank Bruni called Cruz “an ornery, swaggering piece of work.” He’s only been in the Senate for a month; how dare he be so bold?

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has been in the Senate for as short a time as Cruz, but her “bomb throwing” looks more like fireworks to the press, going by coverage of her performance at yesterday’s Senate Banking Committee hearing. She’s no bully; she’s a straight-up gangsta mack-daddy badass doing her job.

There’s no double-standard, though. Those hapless Wall Street hacks were just clueless rich white men who weren’t prepared, and Hagel? Well…

      Okay, I have to say this is HYSTERICAL, Spreading Bull going after banks for 10 cent fees when you consider “her people” at Western Sky are loan sharks who charge 139% interest plus fees! Indian tribes rip poor people off all the time! Talk about “predatory” lending! hahahahaha You just can’t make this stuff up. http://www.scottsanfilippo.com/2010/09/139-interest-plus-fees-or-plenty-of-reservations-about-western-sky-financial/

        Now, that’s really interesting. See, to me Chuck Hagel is the one who’s grotesque. (And I won’t even mention Harry Reid or Henry Waxman.) And speaking of having to pay to get laid… does the name Bob Menendez ring a bell?

      It’s not necessarily Idiocy. Maybe Massachusetts voters just plain hate hate America: Hence, Liz Warren, Barney Frank, Ted Kennedy, Barack Obama, John Kerry, and coming soon, Ed Markey.

        I’m surprised that some under-employed and starved-for-publicity lawyer hasn’t filed a class action suit against the voters in Massachusetts and/or various of its federal districts* who have sent the likes of Chappaquiddick* Kennedy, Barney Frank and, now, Fauxcahontas Warren to Washington D.C.

    This is RACISTS!!! They are dissing Ted Cruz because he’s black and praising Warren because she is white (or Indian I think).

      what’s racist about an argument with 2 fake people of color going at each other?

      • GaryTheBrave

        I never heard that Cruz ever used his heritage in the campaign. smh.

          obama did but only his black half: like half and half: like morgan freeman put it very boldly i may add: obama is NOT the first black president he is the first MIXED president! well said morgan and i don’t like you anymore: but will give you that!

    Imagine waking up in the middle of the night, and finding that – the junior senator from Massachusetts – lying in bed beside you? Worst of all would be discovering that you’re not just having a nightmare.

    Warren quotes her husbands clap trap, these are not her ideas.

  • bobbymike34

    I don’t know why these people take it from these politicians. I would stand up for myself THEY ARE NOT BETTER THAN YOU. I would have come into the session with historic information about Native American financial forms of business in early America, if there was any, and asked Warren how “Cherokees did it” also would have asked her advise on ‘flipping houses’ for profit.
    Fight back against these imperial politicians.

    • reneehaigh

      like Dr. Carlson said on Hannity: when did we become a monarchy? boobama forgets he works for US not the other way around; and it is a shame that the people who didn’t vote for him and going to suffer more so than those who did!! think about that one! because we don’t share his imperialistic views

  • Gallatin

    Robert A George

    @RobGeorge
    @jpodhoretz I’m not denying bias exists, John but, there were OBJECTIVE differences here. @AriFleischer

    Really? Objective differences? “because other senators — on the record — criticized his conduct. That didn’t happen with Warren.”

    Cruz was criticized because the libturd senators in question we’re trying to protect one of their own, just as the turds were doing with shrillary. fauxcahontas wasn’t criticized because she was seen as attacking the evil doers who were hurting the little people.

    What needs to happen is that some senator needs to grow a pair and criticize fauxcahontas—on record–for the government’s role in the financial collapse. Then criticize the government for the bailout of their cronies.

    When she shakes her head back and forth on every sentence reminds me of a car that wont go fast and she acts like shes forcing it to go faster by doing it. She’s an angry fish eating lesbian with an agenda to ruin America.

    As if we needed any more proof that Pres. Obama wants to bankrupt this country, Warren is on the banking commission. The same person who stretched the truth to cash in on the minority status that our government so generously doles out with little or no fact checking!

      Carpetbagging Moonbat Warren is every bit as corrupt and dishonest as Jesse Jackson, Jr. just in a different way.

      A curse on the voters of Massachusetts for inflicting us all with this clueless hate-mongering Moonbat.

    Of course. Warren’s showing off her Marxist street cred while Cruz was vetting an Obama nominee. It’s pretty obvious who the left/media is going to cheerlead for and who they’re going to attack.
    Now, if they call any Dem senators/representatives who were serving on financial regulatory committees before and during the meltdown, all of the sudden, the Warren from these hearings will be nowhere to be seen. And any Republican who shows ‘no mercy’ will be excoriated by the media.

    Matt Taibbi is the absolute worst. If he loves something, it’s pretty much a safe bet I will hate it. I had a received Rolling Stone subscription as a gift a couple of years ago, and his articles were so vile- especially about Romney that I called them to cancel it even though it was free. I am pretty sure he also had some vile things to say about Breitbart when he died, which is pretty funny when Breitbart was vilified for saying similar things about Ted Kennedy. He is the poster boy for Liberal Hypocrisy.

    Princess Warren is slated to be president 1 day according to Huff Post. She might have to settle for Chief of the Liberal tribes.
