Just by watching this short video of a segment from CNN last Thursday, you can see which of the two women vying to represent California in the United States Senate could be a more effective advocate for the Golden State in Washington. One woman is confident and poised. The other is babbling, almost incoherent, making things up.
I mean, the 28-year-Washington veteran needs Wolf Blitzer to send her a lifeline:
Where do you begin with this? Boxer has to go back to the Clinton era — when Republicans were a majority in Congress — to talk about balanced budgets she supported. If Blitzer hadn’t stepped in, the three term Senator may have gone on making up facts. And on. And on.
Noting how “confused” the career politician gets in this segment, the San Francisco Chroncle‘s Carolyn Lochhead finds “Blitzer straightening out her arithmetic.” 28 years in Washington and she needs a cable news anchor to straighten out her math. Maybe it’s spending over a quarter-century in the nation’s capital that has given her such trouble with numbers.
Boxer, as Allahpundit quips, has “zero idea what she’s talking about.” She rambles, is confused, doesn’t seem prepared for the interview, as if she just takes such things for granted. At a time of great crisis for California, how can such a woman advocate for the Golden State in Washington?
And this isn’t the first time she’s come unprepared to an interview with a journalist. If she’s so unprepared when the cameras are rolling, how much less focused would she be when no one’s paying attention?
Well, Carly is ready to roll up her sleeves and help tackle California’s problems. And you can help he out by supporting her energetic, ballsy campaign.
