The day after she announced her candidacy for the U.S. Senate, Democrat Elizabeth Warren told the convocation at the University of Massachusetts-Boston: "My grandmother drove a wagon in the land rush to settle territory out west. It was 1889, she was 15 years old…She lived to be 94, to see her youngest grandchild--that's me--graduate from college…
Warren's maternal grandmother died in 1969, the year before Warren graduated from college, and her paternal grandmother was only 2 years old in 1889.
Warren graduated from the University of Houston with an undergraduate degree in 1970.
Her maternal grandmother, Bethanie Elvina (Hannie) Crawford Reed was born on October 29, 1875 in Lebanon, Missouri, and died on November 15, 1969 in Wetumka, Oklahoma. While she was 94 years old when she died, her death occurred several months before Ms. Warren graduated from college.
Warren’s paternal grandmother, Ethel Virginia Jones, was born in 1887 and died in 1975, at the age of 88.
Perhaps, after the fashion

Did you just now figure out that politicians lie to get elected? It must have been a shock for you.

Elizabeth Warren is your classic politician saying whatever the hell she want's to get herself elected.
Mass. can do better.

So you can either vote for her because she's the lesser of two evils or you can vote for the other guy who will drive the country into the ground in the name of 'fiscal conservatism.'
I don't care what her grandmother did, she's not in my state, let her voters decide.

I think it was safe for her Grannie to assume that Elizabeth Warren was going to graduate from college with only a year left.
Many wonder why we Cherokees are so insistent on Elizabeth Warren coming clean about her false claims of Cherokee ancestry. This is not a political issue to us. We don’t care if Elizabeth Warren is a Democrat, Republican, or an Independent. We do care, though, if she goes around claiming to be Cherokee and has tried to benefit from that claim….
We have researched Ms. Warren’s ancestry in the line she claims to be Cherokee through, as well as researched the collateral lines connected to that family. There is absolutely no indication of her having anything other than Caucasian ancestors…. Ms. Warren’s ancestors were not Cherokees and neither is she. We, as Cherokees, cannot allow Ms. Warren to continue on with her false claims…..
It is time for Ms. Warren to come clean and tell the truth. Until she does, we will not be silenced.
If you are digging for outrage, there are far better subjects to focus on than Warren. But, as the right does fear her common sense and practical ideas so much, I can see how they are making mountains out of mole hills with such a silly story.

You’d like to make it a left right thing but the fact is she’s another pathological LIAR running for office and you’re defending her. These LIARS and crooks in DC are the reason our country is falling apart.
