TRANSCRIPT: Voter Chat With Democratic Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren

See a replay of Friday's U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren chat on Patch — and yes, she did give an answer to the Cherokee question.

Massachusetts U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren live chatted on JP Patch Friday from 1:15 p.m. to 2 p.m.

The chat is over, but you can see a transcript of how Warren responded to voters' questions about her Cherokee heritage, the high cost of college and how she'd work with a Romney Administration.

Why are JP Voters so enamored with this candidate? Her positions on fiscal matters are horrible, her integrity is questionable and her character, as displayed during this campaign has been highly emotional. Without pointing to the likes or dislikes of her competitor, I am really interested in knowing what it is that JP has placed Warren in such high regard, basically blowing Scott out 8-2.

Oh, I don't know. Perhaps it's because Warren is a long-time champion for working people/the middle class and she works tirelessly to protect us from banking and corporate interests which are geared toward achieving short-term profit, no matter what, and because her opponent has already sold himself out to these same interests? Or perhaps it's because Elizabeth Warren supports the DISCLOSE Act to limit the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision that makes corporations "people" (except when it comes to responsibility) and Scott Brown does not. Or because Warren supports the Dream Act, and Brown opposes it. Or because...

Robyn you sound like one of her commercials! Way to form your own opinion, your IQ must be around 90. Because everything she says is 100% true.

Wow, what an insightful chat........ NOT. Every single answer is a generic, vague, rhetoric-filled statement closely hugging the party line. Not sure what is worse, the fact that Ms. Warren seems unable to actually answer the questions she is asked, or the fact that the JP masses actually buy the nonsense she is peddling.......

Remember, folks: it's Bob from JP's lawn, and we're all just damn kids who are on it. And John is clearly upset not because Robyn isn't thinking for herself, but because she isn't thinking like him. He'd be quite happy if she just mindlessly followed whatever notions people who use words like "moonbat" cleave to.

Dan, did you read the transcript? Have you listened to her interviews? She is incapable or unwilling to answer the questions she is asked. Case in point: Q: What job programs do you support to aleviate unemployment? Would you be in favor of lowering capital gains to make it more appealing for companies to have business here? A: Last fall Scott Brown and all the Republicans voted to block three jobs bills in a row. We had nearly a quarter of a million people unemployed here in Massachusetts. The first jobs bill would have supported about 22,000 jobs here in MA, the second would have prevented layoffs of teachers, firefighters and police all across the Commonwealth, and the third would have supported nearly 11,000 jobs mostly in construction in transportation. These jobs bills could have made a real difference in the lives of thousands of families and helped our economy recover faster. I support any and all of them.
