Sen. Boxer takes victim role after hearing for Rice
Washington Times ^ | 1/24/05 | Audrey

Posted on 01/23/2005 10:46:59 PM PST by kattracks

Sen. Barbara Boxer says she is the real victim of last week's confirmation hearing for Secretary of State-designate Condoleezza Rice, yet continued yesterday to question the national security adviser's honesty.
    "She turned and attacked me," the California Democrat told CNN's "Late Edition" in describing the confrontation during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing.
    "I gave Dr. Rice many opportunities to address specific issues. Instead, she said I was impugning her integrity," Mrs. Boxer said.

[snip}
    "I personally believe — this is my personal view — that your loyalty to the mission you were given, to sell this war, overwhelmed your respect for the truth," Mrs. Boxer told Miss Rice, who has been President Bush's national security adviser since 2001.
    Miss Rice responded that she "never, ever lost respect for the truth in the service of anything. It is not my nature. It is not my character."
    "And I would hope that we can have this conversation and discuss what happened before and what went on before and what I said without impugning my credibility or my integrity," Miss Rice said.
    Mrs. Boxer yesterday called that response a "good debating technique."


    "When you really don't know what to say about a specific, you just attack the person who is asking the questions," Mrs. Boxer told CNN.

[snip]

California's other Democratic senator, Dianne Feinstein, declined on "Fox News Sunday" to comment on Mrs. Boxer's questioning, but said her colleague "was within her rights" to question a presidential nominee.
    "I don't happen to agree; I happen to strongly support Condoleezza Rice," Mrs. Feinstein said. "I don't want to see her diminished in the eyes of the world. I want to see her confirmed. She will be."

We can only hope that Condi will finish her off in the next session.

So Dr. Rice asking the boxer not to attack her is in itself an attack? Interesting.

btw - That's Dr. Rice, not Miss Rice. At least she didn't say Ms. Rice.

Also .. many TV talking heads even agreed that Boxer was on the attack and basically called Condi a liar during those hearing

Boxer is a disgusting wretch.At the National level that still calls itself the Democrat Party, she has many fellow travelers.

I find it interesting to watch, it takes my mind off of wimpy members of the Republican Party that truly trouble me.

We have a golden oppurtunity to get great things accomplished, and I want conservatives to whip All Republicans into line.

Conversation between the Mullah and Barbara Boxer: Boxer: "But Mr. Mullah, how can you want to cut my head off, when I am so supportive of your attacks on the United States!!!". Mullah: "Sorry, Senator Boxer, but you are a Jew!!! Off with her head!!! Bring out the next Jew out that voted Democrat. Can you imagine these Jews that voted Democrat are the best allies we have. Now, make haste, get rid of all of them. Yes, you have my permssion to rape and abuse the women before you behead them!!! Now, get with it!!!

Barbara Boxer knows she got -- at best -- no traction on her attacks on Condoleezza Rice. So why this delay and "debate" instead of letting Rice go on to do her job? Because Boxer feels the need to bludgeon Condi when she can't fight back. But much like the televised ambushes of George H.W. Bush by Dan Rather and Tom Selleck by Rosie O'Donnell, the attackers underestimated their prey, and their reputations suffered as a result.

I would like to thank Bill Jones for running a piss-poor campaign -- if it could actually be called one -- against Babs Boxer, making her the most-voted for member of the Legislative Branch in 2004. It's gone to her head, and now she thinks she's burning compost, if you know what I mean and I think you do, and thus is deserving of a national profile in plenty of time for 2008. If the Deaniacs take over the DNC, we will be getting so much Boxer that a Hillary candidacy will seem like a relief.

All of us Cal conservatives who wanted Tom McClintock for governor and, having failed that, for Senator, wish we could laugh at all you guys who said R-nold was the answer, and that Bill Jones was moderate enough to give Boxer a fight. But we can't. Hopefully, you have learned what we have always known: Never send a RINO to do a man's job.

Barbara Boxer did not question Condi Rice: Boxer browbeat Condi Rice. The only logical way to respond to someone attempting to browbeat you (throwing a millions stickbats at you in one breath) is to respond as Condi did. To question a person: you ask, they respond. Then you can respond or ask another question. Boxer did not do this.

Boxer is proof that even an ugly old white woman can be a US Senator. My conclusion is that the majority of Californians are insane.

Boxer is not an unattractive woman. Her current appearance would be enhanced, however, if she showed some tact, grace, civility, and genuine intelligence. Which to me proves, that liberalism is bad for one's aging health and appearance. Marin County is where Boxer reigns. I grew up in Marin County. It was once a very, very patriotic county. The Berkeley Free Speech Radicals graduated and began practicising in our highschools and community colleges. The ugly spread from there. The majority of Californians are wonderful, excellent, people -- who happen to live predominantly in the middle and eastern portions of the state. Liberalism is containing itself to coastline, and more and more, to just two areas along the coastline.

In the Red Counties of California are the workers. In the Blue Counties/Zones of California are the non-workers, the takers. Redistricting would go a long ways towards correcting some of the problems which plague California. IMHO, of course.

L.N.--As an aside to the topic of the thread, I see by the weekend paper here in S.E. Michigan that R-nold (I like it) is in danger of losing his Austrian citizenship because he approved the execution of a California death row creep the other day. I can hardly wait for the assault to overthrow the Constitution so R-nold or our loser canadian governor can run for president.

Californians can be proud that they have a Senator who will go the extra mile to alienate the Senate leadership, the majority, and the President. This will help her get things done for California. Her dogged pursuit of celebrity status among the whackjob set is just what California needs from its Congressional delegation.

Dear Senator Boxer,

I personally believe — this is my personal view — that your loyalty to the mission you were given, to attack this conservative black women in the name of holy liberalism, overwhelmed your respect for the truth.

OK, I'll say it one more time...

If it wasn't for that dang 19th Amendment we wouldn't have a Boxer, Di-Fi, Maxine, Hitlery and a host of other mental midgets in gubmint. Oh, or that Osama loving ijit 'mom in tennis shoes' (forgot her name).

So... forget the 22nd Amendment, repeal the 19th!

I really like her new "refugee" look - the ratty gray tweed coat and the frizzled hair.

The makeover would have been complete if she had just wheeled a shopping cart filled with junk up to the podium before she spoke.

So typical of liberals and childhood bullies. They attack someone and when that individual strikes back, they run away whining about how they are being picked-on.

To liberals, they are either defending "victims" or they are "victims" themselves. Boxer is leading the charge to irrelevance!

Pete Wilson had the foresight to see this, and attempted-with varying degrees of success-to correct the hideous gerrymandering that the California legislature seems to revel in.

I hope that the current governor can do something to break the logjam in Sacramento.
