Given the continual loss of jobs in the (once-)Golden State since Barbara Boxer heralded the passage of the “stimulus,” promising it would (save or) create 400,000 new jobs, it’s no wonder the 28-year Washington veteran is running away from her record.
She’s also running away from debates. Take a look at this clip. And while it was posted by the Carly Fiorina campaign, it was produced by a local Los Angeles television station (KCAL, the local CBS affiliate). Seems California media are wising up to Mrs. Boxer’s tricks:
Note Mrs. Boxer’s pause at 1:26. So, Ma’am, why the trouble answering?
Anchor Laura Diaz reminds us that while “Boxer says she wants to have more debates with her Republican challenger Carly Fiorina, but right now she has agreed to only one more debate and you probably won’t be able to watch it live.”
Reporter Dave Bryan reminds us that Boxer had accepted none of six proposed debates to be broadcast statewide, yet “in contrast . . ., Carly Fiorina has accepted all 12 proposed Senate debates, half of them including live statewide or national TV coverage.”
Seems Boxer isn’t much interested in defending her record, but instead attacking her opponent. Wonder why that is.
You can support Carly Fiorina here.
