She will wait until he receives the nomination, and then pull the rug out from under him. They should push forward now.

I don’t have any sympathy for Ensign. What he did was beyond bad.

Who is more immoral? Ensign for having an affair (as did JFK, LBJ, Ted Kennedy, Al Gore?, John Edwards and let’s not forget Gary “Let’s screw the male interns” Studds) and a little POS traitor like Boxer?

She is a sick little Napoleonic complex in a dress when she is not dressing down a combat field general for trying to address her as a lady, which she is not.

The Moslem extremists are laughing at her all the time while secretly backing her actions (what, you don’t think that the jihadists don’t have their American supporters inside and/or supporting the Democrat Party?).

This woman, if you can call her that, should be tried and convicted of high crimes and misdemeanors, including treason, and given due justice.

In her case, the firing command would be “Aim low”.

{I have a feeling that there is something in her background that would justify this. She is not a supporter of America. Just check her record. People have hinted that there is something bad there, not good for America. We need some real investigative journalists to do some deep digging to see if rumors are true.)

I think Barbara should be investigated for her comments on partial birth abortion..Example..This old cow has no feelings.

Boxer: I would make this statement: That this Constitution, as it currently is - - some of you want to amend it to say that life begins at conception. I think when you bring your baby home, when your baby is born - - and there is no such thing as partial-birth - - the baby belongs to your family and has all the rights. But I am not willing to amend the Constitution to say that a fetus is a person, which I know you would. http://www.nrlc.org/news/1999/NRL1199/boxsan.html

“Boxer” and “ethics” shouldn’t even be in the same sentence...

“I don’t have any sympathy for Ensign. What he did was beyond bad.”

Personally, I’m through being ethical. If Ensign votes my way, I’ll support him to the end. We just shoot ourselves by holding Reps to standards that the Dems would never dream of.

Barbara Boxer is in the words of Woodrow Wilson going to “teach Nevada to elect good men (persons).” They have struck out thus far for many years now.
