Elizabeth Warren won’t define “Middle Class”

An interesting exchange between a reporter and Elizabeth Warren on how to define the “Middle Class” by income level. The reporter keeps pressing Warren for the high and low income boundaries, but Warren refuses to give her numbers saying that it’s a lot of different factors or something (via Buzzfeed)

So they can’t define ‘fair share’ and now ‘Middle Class’. But the ‘Middle Class’ is who they say they stand for, so if they can’t define who it is then how do they know who they are standing for?

Maybe if she smokes her peace pipe it will bring clarity to her mind and she can better define it then.

    Of Course not, middle class are those with jobs, which everyone knows is NOT middle class, but the rich. And she, as an American Indian Princess, will NOT be associated with those who have jobs in the private sector.

    • Betsey_Ross

      Exactly. How in the world did the clueless people in MA ever become morons in one election cycle? There’s more on Elizabeth Warren and her collaboration on a book with Theresa Sullivan who happens to be the Chancellor of UVA. Apparently the book was not a particularly scholarly work with many mistakes and untruths. It almost got Theresa Sullivan fired, but the board at UVA couldn’t get it done unless prompted by the governor. They finally let her stay. No excellence anywhere. Just intellectual dribblings that passes for a scholarly work. UGH!

      • aposematic

        Hmmm… MA voters have been clueless for over a Century… Very seldom have they slipped up and not voted totally corrupt morons into office.

      • 3seven77

        Betsy, I love the innocence of your question! The “Morons in Massachusetts” phenomenon has been going on for years. Ted Kennedy…. John Kerry… Barney Frank… needs I say more?

        • Orangeone

          Funny, I refer to the blue state Minnesota morons too!

        • warpmine

          Don’t forget Deval Patrick!

          • Jazzee

            well don’t associate Hagel with Nebraska anymore…he never was a conservative he was just like obama and dumb Ben Nelson……..

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        Well, they are “progressives” and their idiocy slowly “progressed” over time. I would much rather trust an amoeba to represent Massachusetts than Elizabeth Warren. The amoeba would even possess more brain cell(s) than Elizabeth Warren. The woman hasn’t a clue who she is, where she is, what planet she lives on, or anything else. She is an empty shell that happens to form words into almost coherent sentences.

    • Jazzee

      why do they even talk to this so called brillant professor?????? she has nothing to say worth a hill of beans……….she is an elitist freak like obama

  • joyfulgiver

    I don’t think it’s a matter of won’t it’s that she CAN’t define middle class anymore. I can’t even define it myself anymore. I used to think that we were a part of the “middle class” we own our home, hubby works, I stay home and homeschool our child, we had a retirement nest egg, everything was just peachy. Now, our nest egg is all but gone, our pay check meets our living expenses with NO frills and we just get by. It’s very sad a painful. Especially considering how hard we work to make ends meet.

    Maybe everyone in government should see how well they can live at the poverty level for one year. Take away the salaries, their pensions, there healthcare benefits, their auto benefits, their per-dium and lets see how they handle this as milliions of us have had to in the last four years.

    • BlueGood

      Very typical & classic Leftoid Bullschit….”It’s complicated you know”….

      Fauxcahauntus could have had a wee bit more more credibility if she was wearing a Headdress…or even better still, a “White Lab Coat” like the shills wear for your cough syrup or Toothpaste!

      HOW did this FAKe ever get elected????

      • Well, one thing that helped her sadly is that only 13% of registered voters in MA are Republican.

      • aposematic

        She ran for office in MA.

      • Whonewthat

        The voters choose the Professor over the Flat Earther.

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        The woman would think that making toast is complicated.

  • Nukeman60

    She thinks the fiscal cliff negotiations took a toll on our economy? How does not wanting to raise taxes on anybody hurt our economy? It seems to me, the final results of the negotiations will take a toll on our economy, but the LameStream will tout this as a great victory for the ‘middle class’ – a class that is rapidly disappearing.

    Their defintion of any class by income level will go away. They will start classifying people by the level of benefits they receive.

    If you are self-supporting and get no government benefits, you are the taxable class.

    If you are paying no taxes and are maxxed on your entitlements, you are the voting class.

    If you are in the government and making the laws, you have no class whatsoever. You are exempt.

    “It’s just a question of who you are working for”.

    • Very good definitions! Sad but true.

    • Very good definitions! Sad but true.

  • NYGino

    It would be interesting to ask other Democrats the same question. Is this a position statement that has been issued to avoid being locked in on who and how much to tax or is this just her avoidance, her dodge? (Or should we say Pontiac Chief?)

    • MiketheMarine

      I “think” her indian name is Chief sitting Bullshit.

      • greg2318

        na..her name is squatting cow.. or two dogs fu&king

      • warpmine

        More like Stands in Bullshit.

    • MiketheMarine

      Or maybe it’s Chief Shitting Bull.

        quick mike spit that out.. its not a peace pipe she has in her mouth..

  • Don

    Why is it that liberals who have never had a real job seem so adament about taking from those whose being and that of their dependents depends on their work ethic and their exceptionalism to create what liberals cannot comprehend?

  • Rshill7

    I’ll define ‘middle class’ for her using bits of “wisdom” gleaned from “Das Kapital”:

    Anyone who works for the private sector who is not also a job provider.

    • Orangeone

      So you would put me in the wealthy class because I am a biz owner? Many, many biz owners go without paychecks during the year to ensure the other bills are paid.

  • tinlizzieowner

    “Middle Class” is a moving target depending on what they are trying to extort from whom, at the moment and she knows it.

  • sjmom

    Scoop; they know who they’re standing for:

    1. Themselves
    2. Racists
    3. Unions.
    4. Islamists
    5. Deviants and perverts of every kind
    6. Criminals
    7. Communists
    8. Hollywood
    9. Atheists
    10. America haters

    Could probably add more but this is fairly concise. If Satan were capable of love which he’s not, he’d be hugging everyone of them. After all, its the devil’s agenda they promote.

    “Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about.” Psalm 32:10

    • Those and more all all Satan’s ultimate “useful idiots” 🙁

    • aposematic

      All synonyms for our current crop of Politicians.

  • Sadly, this is nothing new. Progressives have always believed in fluctuating lines of definition for just about everything they take up in conversation; that’s because someone making ten cents above minimum wage is actually taking more than someone making minimum wage, so they’re just as guilty as the uber-rich.

    • Orangeone

      Perhaps I am misreading your post but the “uber-rich” are guilty of nothing. Everyone has the opportunity to learn, work hard, earn, save, invest.

  • Constance

    I still can’t comprehend the absolute stupidity of the voters who put this woman into office, despite her utter incompetence and her lying about her heritage to gain financial ground in her life. I would think being a “pretend indian” would be the height of insult to the left. Yet, it is a badge of honor, worthy of election and continued personal wealth building. Yikes.

    • With the media we have, being a “pretend Indian” would only hurt her if she were a Conservative. Bloody disgrace isn’t it? 🙁

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Well, it is Massachusetts where she got voted in. Consider the voting base.

  • It’s common for libs not to be able to define their position or, apparently, who they claim to represent. Setting a goal line now limits political demagoguery later.

  • M_J_S

    The “middle class” are the people that finance illegal immigrants’ placement in our society.

  • bjohnson55

    I have to go take a shower now cause that was one slimy slippery BS answer, I just feel dirty having listened to it. Notice though that she used an example of someone working over a ten year period. The Liberals want to include incomes of people over a span of years to determine if they are in the middle class or not. This will make it easier for them to justify raising the taxes on the UPPER LEVEL middle class (that is the next class of people to be cut out of the herd) if you include those MILLIONAIRES when looking at a ten year span. Just like Margaret Thatcher said “The problem with Socialism is you eventually run out of other people’s money.” The liberals will eventually get to every class in this country and take – take and take until there is nothing left to take.

  • NYGino

    Liberal/ Dems always have a problem with class.

    • That’s because they are classless jerks.

  • MiketheMarine

    Well, I understand her difficulty because there is no such thing as a middle class anymore.


    …ONLY when every American is living in Government run housing , all transportation provided by the Government , food , heat , water , sanitation , TV , Radio , News , toilet paper , Media , Movies , Internet , tooth paste , soap , socks , underwear , eye wear , shampoo … ETC. will these MARXIST SOCIALISTS finally define the middle class . This is their ultimate goal FUNDA

  • An honest answer from her might sound something like: “The Middle Class is an imaginary group of nebulous people that we pretend to give a damn about so we can soak the ‘rich’ like a vampire to pay for all our Socialist programs and turn this country into one that makes Greece look like a better place to live.”

  • Sober_Thinking

    LOL! Smoke her peace pipe… 🙂

    And morons like her just blithely move on through life in their own self-righteous cloud of ignorance.

    I can’t stand that she is still there. I’ve never seen/heard so much utter vomit from human beings as the gross things that fall out of Democrats’ mouths.

  • I’m glad it was another woman that put her in her place. Otherwise, we would have heard the never ending cries of sexism. (rolls eyes) Only a dumbed down electorate would have voted for this rabble-rouser.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Dumbed down electorate=most voters in Massachusetts.

      • Thanks for saying “most” me and my wife are here and we are Conservatives. Well, someone has to infiltrate them and work on them from the inside. 🙂

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          LOL. Yes, I know that there are conservatives in Massachusetts and you know how greatly outnumbered you are. May your “infiltration” be successful inasmuch as any “progressive” you contact on a regular basis may begin to think for him or herself and be cured of the dreaded disease of “progressivism”. 🙂

  • Some names I’ve seen used to describe her Indian fake heritage:

    Stands With a Writ
    Dances With Socialism
    Spreading Bull
    She Will Sioux
    Hunts at Whole Foods
    Chief Full-of-Lies
    Lying Cow
    Running Joke

    Some from Twitchy, and some elsewhere. All funny and appropriate, yes?

    • MeanGreenBeret

      If I may add one Wolfie.


    • Hunts at Whole Foods- LMAO

    • Orangeone

      Doesn’t hunting at Whole Foods violate the Gun Free Zone?

      • Only if you’re a Conservative. Libtards get a free pass… As always.

  • O/t but funny:
    Flying on Air Force One, Obama looked at Oprah, chuckled and said, ‘You know, I could throw a $1,000 bill out of the window right now and make somebody very happy.

    Oprah shrugged her shoulders and replied, ‘I could throw ten $100 bills Out of the window and make ten people very happy.

    Michelle added, ‘That being the case, I could throw one hundred $10 bills Out of the window and make a hundred people very happy..

    Hearing their exchange, the pilot rolled his eyes and said to his co-pilot, “Such big-shots back there. I could throw all three of them out of the window and make 256 million people very happy.’

    If you’re one of those 256 million, pass this on!! 🙂

    (Just found on Twitter)

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      LOL…good one!

  • opinionatedhermit

    I’m pretty sure that Elizabeth Warren would consider middle class: Something between Cherokee and Comanche….Mixed with a little wayward Okie…

  • Zalman bl

    I would like to watch the full exchange. Where can I find it?

  • mikeinidaho

    Once again the stupid in Massachusetts are led by the great Fauxcahontas. They probably have no idea who the “middle class” are either. Morons.

  • Philo Beddoe

    She really is a idiot.

  • dabbobean

    Elizabeth Warren used to think she was indecisive….but now she’s not so sure.

    She’ll be a big help up there in the Senate……we’re doomed.

    • TitaniumEagle

      With any luck she won’t figure out how to vote.

    • Orangeone

      We are not doomed, I consider this an opportunity to Ted Cruz and Tim Scott to seize.

  • 911Infidel

    Pocafauxness doesn’t have any facts, cause she’s an idiot. She tries to BS her way through any topic. I can’t take her serious at all. Everytime I see her pasty white face I can’t help but think of Big Chief Ugh-Amugh-Ugh.

  • Susitna

    She doesn’t want to define the middle class because soon there is not going to be any at all. The communists don’t want to come out of the closet yet. They are fighting for their own survival and to remain in power. It took the Cubans quite a long period of time to realize who Castro really was, and when he took his make off, all Cubans were already enslaved and dispossessed This is why Warren has to lie and misinform the public as long as possible. The same is true for the sociopaths Obama, Biden, Hillary, Reid Pelosi and the rest of the entourage. The recent TV appearances from Obama are a sign that he is not sure about for how long he can mislead the nation and for how long his propaganda machine is going to work.

  • colliemum

    Of course she can’t define ‘middle class’ – not on TV, that is! She knows full well that such definition has to be flexible, because of taxing ‘the rich’, and someone might pin her down about being middle class, according to her.
    Can’t have that.

    Oh – I’m sooo delighted that the condescending, softly-softly tone of voice so beloved by our socialist female hyaenas has crossed the Big Pond and found a new practitioner in Fauxcahontas!

  • If watching her dodge didn’t put you off your lunch this bit of news might…

    “Barney Frank admitted this morning on MSNBC that he has asked Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick to pick him to replace John Kerry in the Senate:”


    Ugh… That’s ALL I need to make my day! 🙁

    • marketcomp

      That’s what happens when faced with reality. Barney’s Franks realized that he cannot make in a world where he must compete with his little media venture because no one would listen to him so he goes back to government where the people are forced to listen whether in speeches or laws.

    • Ray

      Well, at least he would be the first one in a while that our Founding Fathers original intent for selection of senators. How is this electing them working out?

  • Wigglesworth

    A famous union goon was once asked what he wanted. His answer was “more”.

  • Democrats don’t stand for the middle class and never did. if you are in the middle class and believe they do I have bridge to sell you.

    Democrats stand for only what is exploitable at the moment so they can get re-elected and go on their power trips to social engineer. It feeds their narcissism and ego quite nicely.

  • KateNE

    One of the stupidest and most vapid people ever elected to Congress. Seriously, MA, what the hell?

      Well they did keep re-electing a murderer in Kennedy, not just the woman but their unborn child too, left her to drown while he staggered away.

      • KateNE

        Good point. Then there’s Barney Frank whose boyfriend ran a prostitution ring out of his home.

        • Orangeone

          Yeah and Barney boy has asked the MA Gov to give him Kerry’s seat.  Ugh

  • KateNE

    One of the stupidest and most vapid people elected to Congress. Seriously, MA, what the hell?

  • “What’s yours is mine,” THAT is how socialists like Warren see the world. There will be no end to either their demands or to their attempts to get rid of the one document that safeguards and guarantees our rights: The Constitution. With both the Constitution AND the idea of personal property out of the way, there are no limits to what scum like this will do to this nation. Count on it.

    Once they take it all, we will be classless. She could not care less about any class. She is focused on the money ONLY. “So a gal goes back to school to get an education and makes 11K we will continue to kick the snot out of her too!”
    Any means to their end are justified.

  • TimeForAnarchy

    How can the people of MA be so stupid?

    Oooops. Forgot. Bawney Fwank. Ted Kennedy. Mumbles Menino. Duvall Patrick, et al.

  • She might as well had said “Blue sleeps faster than Tuesday”. It would’ve made more sense than her answer.

  • Kordane

    By what standard does she define “middle class”? By what moral code does she define people as a “class”, rather than as individuals? By what right does she take varying amounts of money from individuals?

    These are some of the important questions to ask.

  • cfrisbee

    This is pathetic. I can’t believe she won in MA.

  • wynnsjammer

    This is really “Scary” to watch because MA has just voted in one very “Sick” woman and I mean “Sick”. She and many other politicians will look right into the camera and “Lie” to the American people and that goes for Democrats and Republicans. This country is in very bad shape and where all riding on a Roller Coaster that is headed straight for a brick wall.

  • Diogenes_wy

    Facts and figures are anathema to a liberal/progressive (totally unrecognizable and not understood) and she perfectly exemplifies the fact.

  • Jennifer Hamilton

    Maybe Native American society lacks the concept of classes? It must be so hard for her to relate to modern America. It’s not her fault; everyone should cut her some slack.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Elizabeth Warren “blah, blah, blah, etc.” Just another Washington hack out to screw over the undefined Middle Class….and anyone else they can include!!!!!

  • The reporter should have asked an easier question, something closer within the sphere of her knowledge. For instance, asking her to define Marxism would be a good start. As a followup, he could inquire which fake Indian tribe best fits the Marxist philosophy. As a closer, the report could pose the following hypothetical: If you could have dinner with 3 people, who besides Karl Marx would you invite?

  • squidbreath

    It sounds like Warren is applying a qualitative test. A teacher in a sabbatical year has low income but still passes the qualitative test. At the end of the video she says “it’s a question of who you are working for”. If she means ‘who the middle class person is working for’ then that is also a qualitative test.

    I wonder if she thinks a high income person may not be in the middle class because he/she fails some qualitative test. For example, would the Beverly Hillbillies fail her test?

    • squidbreath

      It seems to me like she is employing the old, racist, wink-and-a nod, “they are not our sort of people” test. Is it the stereotypical ivy league, WASPish exclusiion of jews and people of color that we see on Mad Men?

      • squidbreath

        She would say “Well, no, no. It’s complicated. There isn’t just a single test.”

  • leel004

    I wish this ran a tad longer, cuz this Mz. Warren is a bit smoken’ something.

    Whaaaat does she mean,” it depends who you are working for”‘. The reported needed to clarify…if I work for a private independent or republican entrepreneur making $300,000, I am in the higher income, BUT..I work for the gov, and make $2 mil I might be middle income. And she was FREELY elected by

  • DebbyX

    What a wench!

  • The simple fact of the matter is that, anymore, the average person just doesn’t care. They don’t watch the news, don’t read any news on the internet and just basically live their lives oblivious to what happens around them. Even if Warren had defined her version of the middle class, the average person would never hear it because they just don’t care. It’s always the Republicans fault. It’s sad that the blind people think that everything will just be okay, as long as they have a job and can pay their mortgage. My neighbor is like that, it is like he lives in a vacuum. He couldn’t tell you what happened in the world today, but he could tell you what the funniest video was on Ridiculousness. He’s middle class and doesn’t have a clue as to what’s about to happen to him.

    • Sad but so true and even when you try to tell them they don’t want to hear it.

  • herb benty

    The Lefts “great swelling words” have beguild America, there is no substance to what they say, only a relentless march to join Greece, break the U.S.A. and start over. I just realised they want to, and must , break the middle class( the strengh of America).

  • This wench is as stupid as those who voted her in………may they all fail together.
