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.

Why it sucks to be Barbara Boxer Part 9 – Maxine Waters Bails Out

Remember the slate mailer scam where Boxer basically paid off Maxine Watters and her family for an endorsement and preferrential treatment on their “Slate Mailer”?

Flap’s Blog just caught Waters trying to cover herself before her ethics trial starts. (Asking a Democrat majority to uphold ethics is like giving Jesse James the keys to the bank.)

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Chair of the Senate Ethics Committee, has paid some $30,000 since 2004 for the endorsement of embattled Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) in the context of a scheme that critics charge is unethical and amounts to Waters using her political station to benefit her family members.According to the Washington Times, Waters “has turned political endorsements into a family business, using federal election laws to charge California candidates and political causes to include their names as her personal picks on a sample ballot, or ‘slate mailer,’ she sends to as many as 200,000 South Central Los Angeles voters.”

 The slate mailer business, it turns out, is run by Waters’ daughter, Karen, via her public relations firm.  Records show that Karen Waters’ firm has been paid more than $350,000 since 2004, and has billed a further $82,000 since California’s June primary, for its services in this regard.

Now, Citizens for Waters – 555 S Flower St Ste 4510 Los Angeles, California 900712420 has refunded monies ($1,217.35) back to Friends of Barbara Boxer.

OUCH – Barbara Boxer’s world is getting quite narrow these days.

Why It Sucks to Be Barbara Boxer Part 7 – Staffer Inside Trading Deals?

Rudy Guiliani lit up Barbara Boxer:

“In the case of Barbara Boxer, she wears us all down.  I mean, it is time for a change. Gosh o’ mighty, hasn’t it been long enough that she’s been doing ruinous things to the state of California and the United States of America? Insulting some of our military heroes – shame on her for doing that. Who does she think she is that she can insult someone that puts their lives at risk for our country? So, it’s about time to end a career that has been enormously harmful to the state of California, just look at the results. If you like what’s going on in California today, if you like 12% unemployment, if you want to see it go to 15%, then re-elect Barbara Boxer.  If you’d like to see that unemployment rate go down, if you’d like to see policies like a great governor of California, Ronald Reagan, did for California; if you’d like to see that, well then you vote for Carly Fiorina.  I think the choice is pretty clear.

But – Carly Fiorina unloaded one of the biggest campaign bombshells to date:

“Barbara Boxer has become a part of the Washington buddy system.  She has become an insider who profits from her position, who profits from her access, and her family members have profited as well. … Barbara Boxer herself has profited from access to at least five IPO’s, her family member’s have benefitted from her service, she has become a multimillionaire while serving as a U.S. senator, she voted herself a 40% pay increase in the dead of night.  Barbara Boxer has profited handsomely from being a member of the Washington buddy system, but the people of California have suffered while she has been in Washington, DC.  And this, a senator who chairs the ethics committee, her behavior should be beyond reproach, and instead, what we find is that her behavior is like so many others – of both parties frankly – so many others who have been in Washington, DC for too long, and who take advantage of their position.”

Have a look at the expose’ the Wall Street Journal Did on Congressional Staffers Profiting from their positions

It slams Harry Reid – but according to the previous post (WISTBB #7) it looks like Barbara Boxer is up to her neck in slime again.
