Hmmm...Hard to answer this question about Barbara Boxer?

Original post made by Ruth, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Aug 25, 2010

Quick...given that Babs Boxer has been in Washington for over a quarter century, you should have NO difficulty naming a mere 3 things that she has done to improve the quality of your life. Correct?

see ad >>> Web Link the lefties out honest (if that's possible)...I know some may respond to this with some feeble attempt to list her accomplishments. But tell me...did you have to do some deep research first...or were these "accomplishments" on the tip of your mind? Hmmmm?

I think it is time for a change. Personally, I'll vote for Carly, tho I wish she were further to the right.

Senator Boxer will always be remembered for the Boxer Rebellion, where she stood alone and demanded the Clinton impeachment, lower taxes, immediate and substantial response to the 9-11 attacks, the condemnation of North Korea and Iran for spreading terror in their regions, greater efficiency and reduced overhead in government and the PUSD, and.. what?? That was a dream??? Oh. Never Mind.

She helped tighten the rules of the Congressional lunchroom after she bounced so many checks they finally had to do something about her. I guess that could be considered a good thing. Beyond that, I can't think of anything else.

I'm not thrilled with Fiorini, but Babs, dumber than a sack of rocks, Boxer has been in WAY TOO LONG!!

Like the rest of the democratic party she is out of a job in Nov. Jerry M will be with her.

Never thought I'd vote for Boxer in a million years - but since Carly is her opponent - she's got my vote. Would never vote for anyone as unscrupulous as Fiorina.

A vote for Boxer is a vote to continue shutting off water to the San Joaquin Valley agricultural area which is costing millions in job losses and lost produce.

I hope you will reconsider based on this fact alone. Boxer is absolutely cruel. She alone can turn the water on given her authority. Her refusal to turn the water on is DOMESTIC TERRORISM.
