"I believe someone should be at the table on behalf of the taxpayer and not just the insiders club that got the money"......Elizabeth Warren

Watch out Satan, here comes Elizabeth Warren! Then again, he's got a pitchfork so I guess he's on our side. LOL

I agree with you and always liked that line of yours. She seems like a tough SOB deep down and so I think she probably gets more fired up by the attacks. Her critics think they can silence her with criticism and it only makes her louder and more determined.

Adam Davidson in hosting this "interview" come across as a corporatist/finance-ponzi system apologist, without a shred compassion the household, and how it is the core of the American economy. His lack of understanding about the systemic nature of the crisis is so blatant, and the between the lines worship and reverence of Ben Bernanke. What an tiny mind. He is the one that comes across as having an agenda and rather than asking questions, as a good interviewer should, he expresses his views, that happen to be in conflict with hers. Go Ms. Warren! Keep up the good work.

Well said, Dave in SW Oregon.

I think her sweet, earnest, professorial bit is just part of her act. I mean, she probably is sweet, earnest and certainly professorial, but she's not naive the way I think some people want to believe. She was on Squawk Box the other day and even Joe Kernen seemed pretty enamoured with her -- AFTER he tossed a few grenades that went dud, of course.

You think a Harvard educated Lawyer would not think twice about setting you on fire...just to watch you burn? This woman knows how to play the game and a truly intelligent person can insult you behind a smile without you even realizing it...until you walk away and think back on the conversation. She gave him the BIG F-U.....he was just not sharp enough to spot it. Read the transcript in black and white....comes through loud and clear.

Not even 2/3 done with this and I can't believe she spent this much time with this idiot. I used to like his show, but I don't think I could listen to him anymore. He had the best person in America (yes, hyperbole, but I will listen to other nominees) for over an hour and squandered it. He should pay her salary for this lost time, plus travel, and a meal credit.

No one wants to hear the truth...They say that no one outside of certain inner circles is even sure of what is the truth. I know that the TAXPAYER cannot account for how his/her MONEY was spent....Who got it....and IF it will EVER be returned. That I AM SURE OF IS THE TRUTH.........It is ALSO the TRUTH that NO ONE wants to TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT IT.....including the AZZ HOLES that GOT IT and a different bunch of AZZ HOLES that GAVE it!-This is s Bull Shit Free Zone

I want to apologize for my foul language...I sit back and read some of the things I have posted and am ashamed that it has led me to vulgarity. This situation is dire both for us personally as well as Nationally and has sparked something inside me that wants to explode. I guess it is because I believe in freedom and justice. These are the precepts that this Nation was founded on and they have been hijacked by Gov't and the meaning of these words complete bastardized by them. To the Gov't freedom and liberty mean that you solely rely on the Gov't for protection of both your money AND your well being...in health care and in financial matters. I believe freedom and liberty means YOU have the RIGHT and DUTY to prepare a course for your life and the Gov't is in place to ensure NO ONE can stop you from your pursuit...be it legal and permissible under the current Law of the land. We now have in place a Gov't that is TAKING you right to choose. Did we CHOOSE to GIVE our MONEY to banksters to squander? No, and be sure CONgress and SATANors........you will feel it in 2010. The rest in 2012. The pen is mightier than the sword and that pen should VOTE to elect PEOPLE to REPRESENT YOU and ME. These elected representatives are PEOPLE and NOT GODS to be enthroned for LIFE but HELD to a HIGHER STANDARD. Carry on....

Adam Davidson is a poor journalist. First, he can't seem to get his thoughts together. Second, he attacked Elizabeth Warren - who the more I hear the more I trust her judgement and honesty - just to attack her, without seriously researching his ideas. He likes to promote himself as an intellectual but he sounded especially foolish to me. I have NO respect for this guy and think his show should be cancelled.

One more thing, the longer the interview lasted, Adam came across as a self-promoting, self-agrandizing jerk. He took every opportunity to promote himself and his connection, his past shows and his "research," He needed to shut-up and listen to a greater mind than his own. I really can't believe this feeble mind has a show on NPR and shame on Ira Glass for promoting this clown.
