Why I don't trust Elizabeth Warren

Don't get me wrong. Elizabeth Warren is much better than the Blue Dogs and Third Way Dems.
OTOH, there is Senator Warren's performance over the past few weeks.

November 3: The Bold Warren

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she believes that the Democratic National Committee was "rigged" in favor of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during the 2016 primary.
Asked Thursday by CNN's Jake Tapper whether she believes that the Democratic campaign organization was tipped in favor of Clinton over her primary opponent, independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Warren responded without hesitation: "Yes."

Later that same day:

“The process was rigged and now it is up to Democrats to build a new process, a process that really works and works for everyone,” Warren said, adding that .people need to have confidence in the integrity of the system.

Nov 9: The Backpedaling Warren

"I agree with what Donna Brazile has said over the last few days; that while there was some bias at the DNC, the overall 2016 primary process was fair and Hillary made history," she said in an interview.

Today: Weak tea Warren

When asked by New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters who the leader of the party was, Warren said, "the grassroots," adding, "I mean, you can either get in front of it and call it a parade, or you can stand to the side and be left behind."
...“Would you argue that it is that the Democratic party needs inspirational leaders and I mean why wouldn’t you say that you’re one of them?” Brzezinski asked.
“Look there are a lot of us out there fighting, but my point is we really need people in this fight on the taxes right now," Warren responded.

We've seen this before

Who is its leader, the host asked, indirectly referencing the reality that voters have relegated Democrats to minority status virtually everywhere but a small handful of states. The first two names to pop into Pelosi's mind were an ex-president who decimated the party over his tenure in office, and a failed presidential candidate who managed to lose to an allegedly unelectable opponent.

Really Liz? Since when? Oh, now you mean? What a whopper Liz, that's really, really hilarious, or would be if it wasn't so sickeningly obvious the grassroots has NO say in YOUR party at all. While the wars march on, we're told we must be patient, that one day you and your party will really use all that powder you've been keeping dry, and then your chosen anointed money soaked candidate pretty much spits in our faces and tells us to go away. But we lead the Democratic party?

I'll never trust her again after that whopper of a lie.

Call me cynical, but it takes a long time to convince me that an ex-Repuke has truly changed his/her stripes. Liz Warren hasn't. Rec'd!!

@gjohnsit That may or may not be, but if she is I'm not really sure what that even means anymore other than it leads us back to the lesser of evils BS. I really don't want to play that game anymore.

@gjohnsit When push comes to shove, Liz will give in.

I do not believe that even a spinal transplant would give her the backbone needed to be a leader. She is a follower who wets her finger and sticks it up in the air to see which way the wind is blowing.

@gulfgal98 @gjohnsit at least when there’s a camera on. When the filming stops, not so much. Ive always been curious where her progressive rep comes from, because it sure looks like she folds anytime she needs to take a truly progressive stand. She’s the female empty suit, for sure. I won’t use the “but she’s better than...” qualifier because frankly, that’s back to lesser evilism.
