… and Now the Merced Sun-Star says: Boxer is a left-wing moonbat, vote for Carly.

If Republican Carly Fiorina is elected to the U.S. Senate on Nov. 2, one of her first acts would be to walk to Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office and offer to work with her to solve California’s water crisis.

We wish Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer would spend more time seeking bipartisan solutions to the nation’s problems and be more open to political compromise.

The biggest problem in Washington, D.C., is strident partisanship, and an unwillingness to work with the opposing party to solve the problems facing the nation.

Boxer has gone so far left that moderates can’t see her in the distance.

Boxer’s partisanship is getting in the way of her representation of California in the Senate. It’s time for a change, and Fiorina offers a new direction for the state.

We need bridge builders in this extraordinarily challenging time. Fiorina has a chance to be part of a new coalition of problem-solvers.

Fiorina has a clear understanding of the issues that frustrate tea party supporters, but without the anger that characterizes much of that movement. Fiorina has a composure and a bearing that enable her to get her points across in a calm manner.

Though she’s been an executive, she has compassion for Main Street, understanding that federal bailouts and stimulus programs haven’t done enough to help average Americans.

We know that only too well here in the San Joaquin Valley where the unemployment rate is much higher than the national and state jobless rates.

On the contentious issue of immigration reform, Fiorina first wants to secure the border and have a guest-worker program that works for California industries.

We support comprehensive immigration reform, but also believe that securing the border and establishing a temporary worker program for industries such as agriculture are at the heart of a solution.

Unlike many in the Republican Party, including gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, Fiorina supports the DREAM Act, which would allow undocumented youth a conditional path to citizenship by requiring completion of a college degree or two years of military service.

Fiorina says we shouldn’t punish “children who through no fault of their own are here trying to live the American dream.”

Fiorina has made several trips to the San Joaquin Valley in the campaign. While Boxer has helped the region with legislation, she has not spent a lot of time here during her 18-year career.

There are several issues in which we don’t agree with Fiorina — she would extend tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans, for example. But we support her based on leadership. We believe Fiorina is better prepared to lead in the Senate than the incumbent.

We urge voters to support Carly Fiorina for U.S. Senate on Nov. 2.

The BEE? They joined:

LA Daily News
SDUT
OC Reg
Bakersfield Californian
Riverside Press-Enterprise
SF Chron could not endorse Boxer
… countless other papers are hiding

AND – The Fresno Bee endorsed Carly a bit ago. The Sacramento Bee could be next?

The Modesto Bee had to get their jabs in at Carly while endorsing her – but they know: IT SUCKS TO BE BARBARA BOXER.

California has two Democratic U.S. senators, one of whom is well plugged into valley issues, especially agriculture and water, and who works well with representatives of both parties.

It’s the other one who is running for re-election this fall.

While Barbara Boxer wanders into our area every few years, and has helped funnel some federal money to the Tuolumne River Regional Park and Modesto’s Virginia Corridor, she is so far left on most issues that we in the valley can’t see her in the distance, either literally or politically.

Most days, Boxer seems to think she only represents San Francisco, Los Angeles and coastal California.

And even more troubling, Boxer seems to be caught up in Washington’s gotcha politics, focused more on beating Republicans than on doing what’s best for California and the nation.

That extreme partisanship has gotten in the way of Boxer effectively representing California in the Senate.

It’s time for a change, and thus we give our endorsement to Republican Carly Fiorina.

We need bridge builders, be they Democrat or Republican, in this extraordinarily challenging time. Diane Feinstein, our other senator, has shown herself to be such a person, and we see in Fiorina the potential to be part of a new coalition of problem-solvers who will benefit both California and the nation. There are many in Fiorina’s party who would be as stridently partisan on the right as Boxer is on the left. That is the wrong course for California.

Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard executive, has a clear understanding of the issues that frustrate tea party supporters, but without the anger that characterizes much of that movement.

She has a composure and a bearing that enable her to get her points across in a calm, civil manner.

Though she’s been a captain of industry, she has compassion for Main Street, understanding that federal bailouts and stimulus programs haven’t done enough to help average Americans. We know that only too well here in the San Joaquin Valley, where the unemployment rate is much higher than the national and state jobless rates.

On the contentious issue of immigration reform, Fiorina first wants to secure the border and have a guest-worker program that works for California industries. We support comprehensive immigration reform, but also believe that securing the border and establishing a temporary worker program for industries such as agriculture are at the heart of a solution.

Unlike many in the Republican Party, Fiorina supports the DREAM Act, which would allow undocumented youth a conditional path to citizenship by requiring completion of a college degree or two years of military service.

Fiorina says we shouldn’t punish “children who through no fault of their own are here trying to live the American dream.”

In order to win in the primary, Fiorina took some far right positions, which led us to recommend her challenger, Tom Campbell, in the June primary.

Now voters must choose between a stridently partisan long-term incumbent and a political newcomer who indicates a willingness to work across the aisle.

Fiorina has made several trips to the San Joaquin Valley in this campaign, and is paying attention to the concerns of agriculture and industry. On one of those trips, she told The Fresno Bee that the one of the first things she would do if elected would be to walk into Feinstein’s office and offer to work with her to solve California’s water crisis. That is a very positive sign.

While we don’t agree with Fiorina on every issue and hope she will moderate some of her views, we believe that she would do a better job than Boxer has in representing all Californians.

Thus, we recommend Carly Fiorina’s election to the U.S. Senate.

When Willie Brown says you have no ground game and reliably liberal rags like the Chico ER and the Modesto Bee endorse against you – you are Barbara Boxer.

WHAT!? A liberal rag in a college town endorses Carly!?

Other media outlets have endorsed Carly:

LA Daily News – Carly
SDUT – Carly
OC Reg – Carly
Bakersfield Californian – Carly
Riverside Press-Enterprise – Carly
SF Chron could not endorse Boxer
… and countless other papers are hiding

So, the Chico paper jumps in (Not without ripping on a Republican in the process, btw…)

While Wally Herger has produced little in the way of results in Congress (see related editorial), the same could be said for Sen. Barbara Boxer.

The difference on Nov. 2 is that Herger faces an uninspiring opponent. Boxer does not. Carly Fiorina is full of promise. She’s bright, engaging, has considerable success in the private sector, and is focused on jobs and the economy.

Boxer, meanwhile, hasn’t done much in 18 years in the Senate. She’s one of the most liberal members in the Senate, which explains why we rarely see her in this part of the state. Though Boxer came close last week with a campaign stop in Sutter County, the last time Boxer was in Butte County was January 2004. Carly Fiorina was in Chico in May.

Given a decent alternative in Fiorina, we think it’s time California voters gave somebody else a shot.

It sucks to be Barbara Boxer.

The Hispanic Leadership Fund, that’s who.

They LIT UP Barbara Boxer while endorsing Carly Fiorina. Whew – three installments on WISTBBB before Lunchtime!!!

Hispanic Leadership Fund Endorses Carly Fiorina
Fiorina Stands in Stark Contrast to 18 Years of Barbara Boxer’s Failures

Washington, D.C. October 18, 2010 – The Hispanic Leadership Fund issued a statement today from its President Mario H. Lopez commenting on its Political Action Committee endorsement of Carly Fiorina, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Barbara Boxer:
 
“Californians of all backgrounds have had enough of Barbara Boxer’s 18 years of failed policies as a Senator.  Boxer’s bitterly divisive brand of politics are a disservice to the people of California, and her support of backward economic policies have had devastating effects on job creation and economic opportunity throughout California and the nation.
 
“Latinos start small businesses at a rate three times that of the general population, and Barbara Boxer’s hostility to small and family-owned businesses hurts Californians in search of opportunity.  Boxer has shown a deep disdain for Latino workers, deriding them as ‘cheap foreign labor’ when she voted to kill immigration reform.  Boxer chooses radical ideology over the livelihood of people struggling to earn a piece of the American Dream—exemplified by her support of crippling regulations that have caused a crisis in California’s Central Valley.
 
“Carly Fiorina will take a fresh perspective to the Senate and will be a leader who supports job growth and will fight to reign in an out of control government that prevents people from making a better life for themselves.  Carly is someone who Californians can count on to vote for forward-thinking solutions that create opportunity and give Californians more control over their pocketbooks and their lives.  The Hispanic Leadership Fund’s Political Action Committee proudly stands with Carly Fiorina.”

Why is it that Boxer and Failure appear together in so many sentences?

Why it sucks to be Barbara Boxer Part 10- There goes the VFW PAC, as in gone…

Every now and them there is justice in the political world. Like people who pay for endorsements and then have them blow up (see also Part 9 and Boxer’s ethically-challenged “friend” Maxine Watters).

The rats are scurrying off the deck of the Boxer. Since Boxer hates the US Navy anyway – the Cuban and Chineese sailors manning the CCCP Boxer are probably unaware of the iceberg that’s behind the fog.

Enter the VFW PAC that endorsed Boxer despite her viceral hatred of the troops and near-perfect record of voting against everything military in her 18-year reign.

From Blackfire Blog:

I have reviewed the Political Action Committee (PAC) Board of Directors’ response to our request to rescind this year’ s Congressional endorsements. I disagree with their assessment.

It is now evident to most of the VFW leadership, both National and especially the departments, that the VFW has been subjected to extreme negative publicity throughout the nation, and the recent endorsement decisions have, in fact, harmed the VFW’ s reputation and future ability to fulfill our mission.

I cannot let this erosion of public support for our great organization continue. The apparent lack of the committee to address these concerns will lead to a proposal by me, as Commander-in-Chief, to amend the by-laws at the 112th National Convention for the purpose of dissolving the PAC. Meanwhile, under the authority granted to me as Commander-in-Chief in section 619 of the VFW National By-Laws and under section 620 of the Manual of Procedure, I am withdrawing all PAC appointments effective
October 15, 2010.

    Accordingly, I’ m asking the council for a vote of “ no confidence” in the VFW PAC as indicated on the enclosed ballot.

    To:  National Council of Administration
    From:  Richard L. Eubank, Commander-in-Chief
    Date:  October 14, 2010

This, after the Ladies Auxilery withdrew all funding support for the PAC (which, I’m told, is a good chunk of it) as well as cries from CO, FL, NY, TX and likely others to do something about the endorsements.

WHY, you may ask?

Take a gander- would you want to say your group endorsed this candidate?

   Accenting again the campaign focus she has placed on veterans’ affairs, Sen. Barbara Boxer on Sunday formally opened a veterans’ center at Pasadena City College and was later brought to tears by a forceful defense of her record by Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii,  a highly decorated member of Congress.

    Inouye joined Boxer for her formal endorsement by the political action committee of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, whose California chairman also praised Boxer’s work on behalf of veterans.

    …[A]sked after her speech about McCain’s objection, Boxer merely smiled and replied: “I’m so excited to have the VFW endorsement. I couldn’t be more thrilled.”

 Me neither.  Not liking it at all.  Neither, apparently, did anyone in the VFW.

Updates to follow, I’m sure…  but this is great news!  Still awaiting some interview with the PAC chairman.  That would be interesting, for certain.
