Warren gave short, clipped answers or ducked questions during the State House presser with Gov. Deval Patrick yesterday. One of the commitments she might have been worried about came up first thing — she was asked how she’d protect defense spending.
Warren was silent as she turned to Patrick.
“Defense spending is you,” Patrick prodded Warren.
“Oh, that’s mine,” Warren replied.
After Warren fielded the question, Patrick stepped in to answer the follow-up.
Warren spoke for less than four minutes during the 11-minute press conference. A Warren campaign staffer declined comment on why the once-verbose Harvard Law professor was mum on many subjects.
And when she did respond, the answers were often brief.
How does she feel about the high turnout of female voters and the election of women in New Hampshire?
“I’m glad,” she said.
Is it surprising?
“I’m glad that the women turned out to vote, it meant a lot,” Warren said.
Asked what impact more women in the Senate would have, Warren punted.
“You want to try answering that?” she said to Patrick, who stepped in again
Warren is pathetic and couldn't even answer a direct question about women voted to the Senate, of which she is one, without hiding behind Deval's skirt. She never answered any questions while on the campaign trail and the only thing she did was to bash Brown and Rublicans by using terms like "hammered" without explaining how they pertained to Brown.
Her first press conference and she was hiding behind Patrick. Great. And she is the one Massachusetts D lemmings voted in.
God help us.
