Skip to comments.Barbara Boxer: Serving in Uniform Just Like Being a Politician

During a campaign stop in Inglewood, California this past weekend, Barbara Boxers 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 youve gone through similar things you need to share it. I dont 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.

Second that !
Keep talking Babs, keep talking.
Bullsh*t! I don’t know any veterans who got filthy rich while serving their country. That’s something only politician do.
Barbara, you dumbass, ignorant slut!...
Military Ping. Active duty and retiree.
“You know, do me a favor,” ..... “Could say ‘Senator Idiot ‘ instead of just ‘Idiot”?
“It’s just a thing, I worked so hard to get that title, so I’d appreciate it, yes, thank you,”
Boxer, an idiot spouting idiocy. Is that “Ma’am” or “Senator,” idiotBoxer? =.=
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.
Barbar Boxer meets COL JESSUP !!! LOVE IT !!
Boxer is a first class ass hat.
The little ditz probably believes this!
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
Really.... Someone ask her where the nearest homeless politician shelter is located.
Politics is war
