The Massachusetts GOP has put out an ad (H/T Michael Warren of The Weekly Standard) highlighting Elizabeth Warren’s history of flipping properties on foreclosed homes. The ad is based on a Boston Herald story put out earlier this month documenting real estate transactions she entered into mostly during the 1990s while still living in Oklahoma. Warren, of course, has railed against banks which foreclose homes but apparently doesn’t object to making money from them.
Which leads me to this question. Did Warren attend one of Tom Vu’s free real estate seminars? If you watched late night TV in the 1990s chances are you came across one of Vu’s infomercials in which would hail his rise from poverty as a Vietnamese refugee into a real estate mogul. Vu would often be surrounded by his mansions, fancy cars and bikini clad women on his yacht telling viewers if you didn’t attend one of his free seminars that “you deserve to be broke” and “Don’t listen to your friends, they’re losers.” I’m sure Tom Vu probably held a seminar or two in Oklahoma City. Liz Warren and Tom Vu make an odd pair but I cannot help but wonder if they crossed paths.
In any case, it would be interesting to know who taught Liz Warren how to buy and sell, as Vu put it, “distressed properties”?

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
