ANALYSIS -- In California, Boxer faces toughest race yet
Fox Business ^ | Aug 2, 2010 | Reuters

Posted on 08/01/2010 11:46:20 PM PDT by SmartInsight

Of all the U.S. Senate seats Republicans hope to win from Democrats in November, there may be few they covet more than that of Barbara Boxer, the powerful California liberal facing a bruising battle with businesswoman Carly Fiorina.

But it's not only Republicans who believe that Fiorina, a multimillionaire former Hewlett-Packard CEO, has a chance to knock off Boxer. Political analysts are calling the race a toss-up, and even Boxer's own campaign sees a hard-fought race in the fall.

Voter surveys have found that the outspoken Boxer, a strong supporter of President Barack Obama's agenda and a lightning rod for conservative anger, now has unfavorable ratings of above 50 percent of Californians.

It would really be something to knock off communist Boxer in blue-blue CA and replace her with a Republican.

I think we have a good chance.

I’ve already donated to Fiorina’s campaign, I may do so again closer to the election.

They should just keep playing that clip of her exchange with the general. Should at the very least get the apathetic conservatives riled up.

The woman is a traitor and a disgrace.

Carly is 100% pure RINO, so I see very little improvement if she should happen to get elected, except it strengthens RINO count, and that is not a good thing!

Kill All RINOs (politically speaking, of course) is more important than a RINO win in deep blue country.
JMHO

Are you serious???????????????????????????????????????

Boxer is a f'n liberal idiot and to displace her would send a huge message.

Yes, Fiorina is not an ideal candidate to support the cause, but to get Boxer out would be HUGE!

I also feel that should Fiorina and Whitman win this November, that California's electoral votes will be in play in 2012 causing the bamster and the DLC to spend time and money here when it could be spent on other races. It is truly amazing to watch him destroy his party so thoroughly in such a short time but they had it coming. Pride comes before a great fall.

She also will owe an enormous debt to Sarah Palin and after 2012 should go along with the Palin plan to overcome Obamunism.

Yes I am serious, because the consequence of RINOs is more devastating than Commie attack. RINOs give the enemy cover, and allow their objectives to be accomplished, while blurring the target to retaliate against.

In all seriousness, COMMIE Boxer is preferred over RINO Carly, because the battle lines can be more clearly defined, and then subsequently eliminated!

I’m from AZ, and I suffer from Juan’s influence/betrayal.

No foolin'. Apparently Jedger is an all or nothing voter and would just as soon take the worst candidate because the alternative is not the best alternative.

J Edgar says: “the consequence of RINOs is more devastating than Commie attack.”

That just shows you are either painfully ignorant about communism, even after Obama and the Dems are starting to give you a taste, OR you are a commie, trying to stir up trouble on FR.

NO real conservative would prefer Boxer to anyone, except perhaps Obama, but even that’s a toss up.

You appear to follow more the Dem strategy of “divide and conquer” the conservatives and Republicans in this election, to help the Dems eke out a victory.

For twenty years I have written Str. Boxer on all sorts of issues. It is an absolute waste of time. She has her extreme environmental constituency and that is it. She will ram down our throats whatever Wilderness or species whim in our county that they desire, regardless of almost universal local opposition. The only time she has ever stepped foot in the county was for the Cantara Loop railroad spill back in the beginning of 1990. ANYONE would be better than her.

Not really, but in this case I truly believe that Carly will morph into Boxer within one (1) year of Washington, DC corrupting pressure. I have no reason to believe she is anymore principled than B’ch Boxer.
The point here is that if GOP is dependent upon RINOs for political clout, then conservatives SHALL never survive!
Conservatives must strive to take GOP as their own, or they shall not survive. Supporting RINOs is Directly Opposite to that objective.

” ... That just shows you are either painfully ignorant about communism, even after Obama and the Dems are starting to give you a taste, OR you are a commie, trying to stir up trouble on FR. ... “

I assert you cannot, nor are you capable of, reading my heart or anyone else’s!

I am stating, as strategy, that the concept of supporting the lesser of two evils has lead us directly into our present situation. Therefore, a thinking person would re-evaluate, and come up with a better plan.

My position is that NO RINOs is an absolute pre-condition to restoring Our Beloved Republic!
I also submit, that by you making wild claims of “stir up trouble on FR” is totally devoid of intellectual content, and a red-herring for you lack of analytical skills or political savvy!

The same people cheerleading Forino are the same cheerleaders for Brown....down the line, the cheerleaders for Brown are suddenly disappointed that he has brought NOTHING to the Republicans....lol. Cheerleaders never learn. Don't they complain about the Maine Twins, Lugar, Lindsey Graham, McCain, etc.....Could it be that they just like to b!tch.

One further comment: the above slop has an unsettling resemblance to “Politically Correct”

LOL!
May I suggest that the steel of historical fact, coupled with the edge of impeccable logic, is the only dagger of defense needed!
Preparation, therefore, consists of being informed, and of sound mind, attributes that the majority of FReepers exhibit daily!
