Haven't seen much of Warren, but as you know already the one's who gets the nomination is already determined before the race starts, politicians are puppets too. I got asked for the local party here but since I can't "control the narrative" or function freely within any structured party or "group" I'll always refuse such a position, and that's locally, the further you climb up the political ladder the more you're controlled by the masters and the more you have to "review" or "bypass" your principles or motivations which made you want to get into politics. Ofcourse for some this is shitty, for others thats precisely why they get into politics, to control and manipulate.p22 wrote: ↑Tue Jul 07, 2020 3:40 amI like Elizabeth Warren, I don't consider her changes of heart regarding her "plans" as a failure but an act of taking others perceptions into consideration and adapting them to a revised "plan"- In that regard, she is constantly evolving-
Obama and his administration considered her a pain in the ass- Their tune may have changed- I don't know- I do know that his eloquence was used to gloss over his own lack of wokeness- It appears he's still playing the lead character in that role-
I think I feel similar about Shunryu Suzuki in that regard- Yes, good teacher- Shitty parent- Obama: Yes, good speaker- Shitty president-
Those he ignored became Trump supporters -- which amounted to quite a few ..
For years whenever I watch a political debate, whether Dutch or American I always mute the sound. It's obvious then what drives them, as the words they utter are mostly to distract people. I have to say Obama has one of the best political poker faces, but he often drops his guard. When the elections are close, pay attention at the moment someone from the crowd asks a question (or the interviewer) for a very short moment, all you need to know about a politician is right there, you can see if based on the reaction of the question whether they have ulterior motives or are just lying, the amount of cognitive dissonance with politicians is on OD when they get questions from civilians. The method acting sucks in politics btw their "warmth and compassion" for ppl is plastic at best.
