Washington (CNNMoney) – Republicans attacked Elizabeth Warren - the Obama administration adviser working to set up a consumer financial protection bureau - at a House hearing Tuesday, questioning her veracity in two separate instances.
In a hearing entitled "Who's Watching the Watchmen," Republicans on a House subcommittee used the opportunity to delve into Warren, her plans and her past testimony to Congress.
The House full of Thugs of GOP those who lie to them all look like lairs. No surprise....o.k, don't worry, just have nice coffee at home...they mean nothing....totally nothing...don't they know they messed this nation like a hell...now talking...idiots...
The republicans are afraid of smart women - they will do all they can to protect their corporate buddies. It's gonna get worse, folks. Either vote Democrat or watch this entire nation crumble in no time flat. (Of course, they'll blame the dems, the ones that gave them all their rights and the veterans of this country more help and care.)
Machiavelli would be very proud of these House Republicans, for they are the liars.
Good Lord! An actual federal agency that watches out for the consumers and the middle class? How dare the GOP let this happen! Aren't the rich, with thier high money lawyers, the only people entitled to fair treatmnet? Why does it not surpise me that the GOP is against anything that helps the middle class...
The Inquisition continues ..... this episode is not complete. BTW, isn't considered bad form to ask someone a question and then cut them off mid-sentence on a different subject. Come on, man. That's juvenile. Trying to confuse people.
opps... i hope it was not in writing...
Two words that will eliminate GOP/Teahadist nonsense and obstruction-RECESS APPOINTMENT!
We need a strong person to speak on behalf of the Middle-Class. Obiviously no one in the GOP/Teahadist party has those credentials!
Someone in Washington lying? I can't believe it.
McHenry is a complete idiot and Neanderthal. Thank goodness he doesn't represent my home state, I'd be embarassed to no end to have an elected official treat anyone, yet alone a government official, the way he did! North Carolina, keep electing the classy people and knuckle-draggers! Wow...
Elizabeth Warren is the ultimate sanctimonous, pretentious academic to try to run our lives by her percetions of what is good for us!!!! ENOUGH!!!!
The GOP panel is using this subcommittee hearing to harass and undermine Elizabeth Warren and the Obama Administration. This is not about truth. Its all about politics.
A leftist Democrat lying??? Why do you think that? Were her lips moving?
Seems to me the GOP is getting pretty desperate with accusations such as this. The GOP is going to get hammered in 2012.
Told you so...just look at my comment about Warren from yesterday. Baseless accusations, fabrications and theatrics intended to play the "accusation = conviction" game. The most transparent thing in DC is GOP strategery.
"isn't considered bad form to ask someone a question and then cut them off mid-sentence on a different subject."
Not if the point is simply to insinuate something by having asked the question in the first place. Can do it on cross-exam all the time "blah blah blah [insert insinuated accusation here]? strike that."
The GOTP has conducted numerous public hearings, with more scheduled. Not a single one of them has had anything to do with creating jobs, cutting the budget, controlling health care costs, national defense, gas and oil prices, campaign finance reform, nor anything else that concerns the average middle class American.
They have discussed various other topics; this current inquisitive witch hunt, why the muslim community has not reported any muslim terrorists (even though they have), the ground zero mosque, and other stuff. The GOTP has been critical of Democrats for holding hearings on various topics; oil and gas execs, health care execs, bank and investment execs, and other industry leaders to explain how their industries work and best serve the American people. Do you see a pattern here?
Anybody attacking or making fun of comrade Warren will be dealt with harshly.
