Barack Obama slams Elizabeth Warren over TPP comments

May 10, 2015

  The war of words between Barack Obama and Elizabeth Warren over the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal is escalating. Elizabeth Warren stated that if the TPP was fast-tracked it would give the Republicans the means needed for them to undo the Dodd-Frank legislation and needless to say, Barack Obama was not happy and he let it be known.

  Here is more:

In an interview with Yahoo! Politics published Saturday, Obama said that the Massachusetts senator’s arguments “don’t stand the test of fact and scrutiny,” and that “she is absolutely wrong,” on any trade deal’s potential to roll back the Dodd Frank Act.

The president didn’t hide his irritation at Warren’s comments, stating, “the notion that I had this massive fight with Wall Street to make sure we don’t have what happened in 2007 and 2008, and then I sign a provision to unravel it? I’d have to be pretty stupid.”

Obama said Warren’s arguments were not based on substantive evidence. “This is pure speculation,”

  Tinfoil hat time: I have to say at this point in time I am becoming just a little bit suspicious of this whole dust up between the President and the first-term Senator from Massachusetts. Democrats usually do a great job at keeping any major intraparty skirmishes private but this one has burst open in public at an interesting time as potential Presidential candidates announce their intentions.

   elizabeth-warrenThe far-left is not sold on Hillary Clinton and there has been a draft-Warren movement afoot for quite some time. We also believe there is no love lost between Barack Obama and the former Secretary of State and it is quite possible the President still holds a grudge against the Clintons.

  Could this high profile showdown be in part do to a plan to help elevate Elizabeth Warren on the public stage and gain her support and momentum as she prepares to run for President despite her denials? After all, this paints her as a non-partisan who is willing to take on the leader of her party while sticking up for the American worker. She will be portrayed in the media as a gutsy, tough, middle-class warrior who is unafraid to do what she believes is right at all costs and no matter who it offends.

  I am not saying Barack Obama does not want TPP to pass because I think he does, but this also provides a little theater which could be beneficial to a potential Presidential candidate and provide the President will a little bit of revenge. Thesis/antithesis/synthesis. Sometimes the synthesis might be something hidden behind the veil, or perhaps there could be more than one synthesis; while everyone is of the opinion this is all about free trade there could also be other underlying motivations behind what we are watching unfold…
