Liz Warren: The Game is Rigged

By on 9.5.12 | 10:56PM

On at least three occasions during her speech, Massachusetts Democratic Senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren said "the game is rigged."

That might get the base of the Democratic Party excited but it's hard to see how that will win over the general public. 

I was struck by the conclusion of her speech:

So let me ask you - let me ask you, America: are you ready to answer this call? Are you ready to fight for good jobs and a strong middle class? Are you ready to work for a level playing field? Are you ready to prove another generation of Americans that we can build a better country and a newer world?

Joe Biden's ready. Barack Obama is ready. I'm ready. You're ready. America's ready.

Shouldn't Obama-Biden been ready at noon on January 20, 2009? If they weren't ready then, what makes anyone think they're ready now?
