Not long ago, Hillary Clinton looked like the safe bet for the Democratic presidential nominee. But Elizabeth Warren has risen as a star of the progressive left and thrown the 2016 field into question. She was one of the biggest opponents of a massive spending bill, dubbed the CRomnibus, which the Senate approved over the weekend. And now her star among the leftiest lefties is bigger than ever.
"So there was something that happened this weekend -- what a surprise. They went ahead and passed this bill, the Republicans passed this spending bill. Congratulations. Congratulations. This is why we said when we were looking in the primaries, to get Tea Party people, don't dot it. No, no. We have to have people work together with the left. We have to have people work together with the Democrats. No, that's not the kind of working together you want. The kind of working together you are going to get with those people is they are going to work together for their own purposes, own crony capitalists, their own banking schemes, their own party schemes. They are going to work together in that way. No, no. You are just trying to destroy the Republican party. Look at what you got. You have the Democrats and the Republicans, working together, to fund this monstrosity," Glenn said.
"And who comes out? Two people. One, Ted Cruz, gives the speech of his life and is pilloried for it. He is the anti-Christ, the most dangerous man in America. Stop Ted Cruz. He's going to tear apart the party. He just wants to vision, he's nothing but hate. He wants nothing to happen in Washington. He's just trying to pull the whole system down, right?"
"Then explain why the love-fest is happening with his counterpart on the left, Elizabeth Warren, who is coming out against her party and saying her party has given into crony capitalism. There are only two people that are real."
"There is Ted Cruz, who is real, who says crony capitalism is wrong, and small government is the answer. And then there's Elizabeth Warren, who says crony capitalism is wrong, and socialism is the answer. Those are your two choices. Everything else is bull crap. Everything else is bull crap."
