Barbara Boxer: Serving in Uniform Just Like Being a Politician
big government ^ | 7/31/10 | Paul Chabot

Posted on 07/31/2010 10:04:21 PM PDT by Nachum

During a campaign stop in Inglewood, California this past weekend, Barbara Boxer’s disrespectful attitude toward our armed forces was on full display when she equated the experiences of Members of Congress with the experiences of those who have put their lives on the line serving our country in uniform.

Boxer said this, at an event during which she was supposed to help break ground on new housing for homeless veterans:

“We know that if you have veterans in one place where they can befriend each other and talk to each other. You know when you’ve gone through similar things you need to share it. I don’t care whether you are a policeman or a fireman or a veteran or by chance a member of Congress. Maxine and I could look at each other and roll our eyes. We know what we are up against. And it is hard for people who are not there to understand the pressure and the great things that go along with it and the tough things that go along with it.”

I don’t know what it is about her, but of all the politicians I despise, she’s in a special category—I actually cannot endure her for more than a few seconds without switching to something else.

I can’t really articulate why she offends me above even Pelosi, Schumer or any number of awful pols.

That may be the most outrageous thing I have heard in a long time. That bitch has gall comparing her sorry existance to a soldier.

Ma'am? May I suggest that if you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen. You will never, EVER be held in as high esteem as our nation's veterans. You simply haven't done anything to earn it.

That’s it! (slaps forehead) I always knew there was something - just couldn’t put my finger on it. Leave it to one of our elites to be sensitive and bright enough to notice how alike those who serve in uniform are to politicians.

Thank God for those military uniforms or we would have to rely on the politicians’ total lack of honor/integrity/character to be able to tell them from the military.

Barbara Boxer is correct. Being a Democrat in Congress today is just like being in the military....just like Benedict Arnold’s service.

I’m trying really hard, but I don’t quite see the similarities between being a politician – who’s only interested in saying and doing anything to get elected or reelected and being here in Afghanistan, among the most selfless Americans I’ve ever been around

Well, except for that traitor thing, Benedict Arnold actually did have an excellent record of heroic service. We can’t even say that much for *certain* members of Congress.

“I can’t really articulate why she offends me above even Pelosi, Schumer or any number of awful pols.”

Maybe because of Boxer’s ability to project both her ignorance and arrogance all in one sentence, and in sentence after sentence, ad nausium.

That Bitch is not worthy of tying the shoes of anyone that honorable served in the military.

That could be it. Every sentence she spouts not only drips with contempt for the American people, but with her complete sense of superiority to all even as she speaks nonsense.

Ignorance + Arrogance = A tough mix to beat.

Boxer actually adds a third dimension of repugnance: she is plain stupid. In fact, she is far too stupid to recognize how ignorant she is, so she feels arrogantly superior.
