Massachusetts Senate candidate, activist, and former Obama adviser Elizabeth Warren is now taking credit for the Occupy Wall Street movement, according to The Daily Beast.
“I created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do,” she said in an interview with The Daily Beast. “I support what they do.”
Daily Beast writer Samuel P. Jacobs explains: “Warren’s boast isn’t bluster: As a professor of commercial law at Harvard and the force behind Obama’s consumer-protection bureau, Warren has been one of the most articulate voices challenging the excesses of Wall Street.”
Most Blaze readers are probably familiar with Warren as the Harvard professor who famously claimed that “there is nobody in this country who got rich on his own.”
She has been described as “a guileless, fevered Marxist” by former Reagan White House political director Jeffrey Lord, and George Will once wrote that she, “clarifies the liberal project and the stakes of contemporary politics. The project is to dilute the concept of individualism.”

When I mentioned Rick Perry’s foray into Birtherism yesterday, a number of his supporters commented, e-mail, and tweeted that I was being unfair to the Republican candidate, and that he wasn’t endorsing or engaging in Birtherism at all in his Parade interview. Today’s interview with CNBC’s John Harwood will be a little harder to explain away:
Q: Why did you choose to keep the birther issue alive?
A: It’s a good issue to keep alive. You know, Donald [Trump] has got to have some fun. It’s fun to poke him a little bit and say “Hey, let’s see your grades and your birth certificate.” I don’t have a clue about where the president — and what this birth certificate says. But it’s also a great distraction. I’m not distracted by it.
Barack Obama’s college grades are certainly fair game, especially after the media went after Perry’s less-than-stellar academic record at Texas A&M. Obama has refused to release his college transcripts, and the media has exhibited a lot less curiosity about Obama’s scholastic record than about those of his rivals in either election cycle. In fact, they were a lot less interested in vetting Obama on anything in 2008 than they were with John McCain and especially with Sarah Palin. Media outlets sent dozens of reporters to Wasilla and Juneau, while mainly ignoring Chicago reporters who tried to explain that Obama was a Daley Machine dilettante.
