Carly Fiorina’s latest campaign ad has begun to grow on me. When first I saw it, I didn’t think she hit hard enough, but the more I watch it, the more I like it.
Maybe it’s that when Carly addresses us directly, she makes some subtle jabs at her opponent, the 28-year Washington veteran. Barbara Boxer constantly bickers; she persistently plays politics; she doesn’t reach across the aisle; she never opposes her party.
Indeed, Barbara Boxer’s entire ambition to serve in the Senate is to promote her own left-wing agenda. And further own ambition. This one clip says it all:
Barbara Boxer can berate a general for following military protocol, yet she won’t address Californians. In none of her ads, does she, like her Republican rival, directly address us, the voters.
If Barbara Boxer can’t make her case to Californians, how can she make the case for California to her colleagues in Congress?
