Barbara Boxer -- Too Stupid for California? (LOL!)
American Thinker ^ | May 7, 2010 | Clarice Feldman

Posted on 05/07/2010 2:16:05 PM PDT by jazusamo

In a stunning development the LA Times has declined to endorse Barbara (Senator, not ma'am, please) Boxer for re-election on the ground that she's failed to exhibit intellectual leadership.

Who knew?

Maybe anyone who paid attention to her babbling over the years:

Quote: Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., noted Rice has no children of her own to lose overseas. "Who pays the price?" Boxer repeatedly demanded. "You're not going to pay a particular price," she told Rice, because the secretary has no "immediate family" at risk.

Or this Video, Barbara on race:




On Climate Change: This and this.

On health care: abortion is like Viagra

I can stop any time.

I did notice that several times during the video, Mr Alford responds to Boxer with the very condescending “Yes Ma’am”, but unlike General Michael Walsh, she didn’t interrupt him and demand to be called “Senator”, because dammit…she earned it.

Ignorant, arrogant, self-centered broad.

Funny that the Times didn’t endorse her. Could it be that the Times is seeing the light?

Wishful thinking on my part, I’m sure.

In the general election the LA Times will endorse Boxer, guaranteed.

in her case intellectual and leadership are contradictory terms.

When all the dirty details of the DeathCare bill (genocide of the elderly) are exposed, none of the Socialists like Boxer and Feinstein, that voted YES, will be elected to dog catcher.

On the Democratic side, we find that we're no fans of incumbent Barbara Boxer," the newspaper said in an editorial Friday. "She displays less intellectual firepower or leadership than she could."

What does "intellectual firepower" mean?

Kind of difficult to have any “firepower” when you put your powder on your face instead of keeping it dry. She is a complete idiot and a total joke!

n.
1. The capacity, as of a weapon, weapons system, military unit, or position, for delivering fire.

2. The ability to deliver fire against an enemy in combat.

I guess it means she is shooting with blanks in the intellectual area.

A younger friend of our sons knows a few of those on the Boxer team assigned to help her say yes when she should and no when she should and say nothing else.

Apparently, everytime she opens her mouth she puts both of her feet in it and half of Frisco in with her feet.

Her advisors live in mortal fear of her mouth. The only thing that gets her reelected is her pro abortion stand and 100% votes for any liberal bills that comes across.

Thanks...That doesn’t surprise me in the least but it’s really sad people elect her and those like her, Murray in WA for example. Like you say, they vote for anything and everything liberal.

That dialogue should be recorded for all time:

"You know, do me a favor," an irritated Boxer said. "Could say 'senator' instead of 'ma'am?'"

"Yes, ma'am," Walsh interjected.

It is a meaningless term written by a 24 year old with a poor education, a lousy command of English, and no clue what she really wanted to say.

The dumbing-down of America continues. On top of which, the media elite socialist liberals can't stand to criticize their own (Democratic Party members) in plain language, and will use all manner of twisted phrasing and euphemisms in order to soften the criticism until it becomes meaningless.

We are only in the primary elections within parties. There is no point in the Republican candidates screaming about this until they know they won their primary and know who they will be running against. It is a little early to be running against the opposing party. Hold your fire.

Here at Fox: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/06/18/boxer-senator-chides-brigadier-general-calling-maam/

I listened to the video several times and I am still not sure. At the part where he first interjects (ma’am according to Fox) Boxer is still talking and comes across over the General.

You want a certain level of intelligence in a Senator, but I, for one, am absolutely aghast at the implication that we’re supposed to expect “intellectual leadership” from a politician. That is, if it is as it sounds, and we’re to expect them to lead us in the intellectual realm, rather than merely injecting some intelligence into their political leadership.

“What does ‘intellectual firepower’ mean?”

I think it means being able to win an argument. Wherein an argument is a battle, and firepower is whatever tactical intellectual weapons you have at your disposal. Yet another sad example of comparing everything to war, which apparently is among the only metaphors contemporary popular culture can muster.

The LA Times has surely become desperate. They must be hoping to entice a few new subscribers by not endorsing Boxer but I suspect they will just lose their last few remaining lib subscribers instead.
