Principaled Elizabeth Warren Not Afraid to Take A Stand

“It’s clear where President Obama stands and it’s just as clear where Mitt Romney stands,” a steely Warren told the crowd.
“No, Mitt, corporations are not people,” she deadpanned, referencing Romney’s comment from the Iowa State Fairgrounds last summer, when he explained “corporations are people, too.”

“People have hearts. They have kids. They get jobs. They get sick. They love and they cry and they dance. They live and they die,” she said. “Learn the difference.”

I like her, she reminds me of Ed Butowsky. Her wit is remarkable.

OMG I love that. And I haven't heard it before.

I too hope she is elected to the Senate. We need her! I remember Jon Stewart (I think it was) who said he will believe corporations are people when Texas executes one. :-)

Thanks Bill :)  I'm crazy about her.  Wish she were running here but she'll do more in MA.  

You're thinking of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau which she organized based on her career as an economist and teacher:

I hope she is elected to the senate.  I thought her work on the financial crisis (forgot her position but something to do with TARP) was a big benefit.  When I heard big credit card companies didn't like her, I thought even better about her.  good post
