Taking a Failed Senator to Task

Having failed to accomplish much of anything for the Golden State in her 28 years in Washington, Barbara Boxer has based her campaign, not so much on defending her record, but attacking her opponent. While the California media have largely been silent about Boxer’s misrepresentations of her own record and questionable investments, it’s been up to her opponent to remind us of that record:

Since the media aren’t telling us the truth about this failed Senator, you can help Carly Fiorina remind us what a disaster Barbara Boxer has been for California.



  1. A question for Mr Blatt and the readers of GayPatriot (forgive me if its foolish, but I’m young and I don’t have much in the way of perspective): say Fiorina wins. Say she steers California to the road of recovery. Jobs are created, Cali starts to claw its way out of the financial hole, etc. (Assuming of course that Carly is as competent as she seems.)

    What will the liberals of California do when they see successes piling up around them? When the state is no longer bankrupt (or close to it?) In short, when everything finally begins to right itself, what will they do? What will they say?

  2. They will do a 180, claim they always supported it, and that Republicans were just stealing their ideas.

    And the rest of us will just smile and shake our heads.

  3. #2: …correct, NDT. And then, just as the State of California reaches a stable and promising plateau of fiscal security, the Democrats will: floor the accelerator on spending; rapidly expand state and municipal government back to crisis levels; commit the state to new, more lavish collective bargaining agreements, putting the public labor unions back in the driver’s seat; abandon all purported re-commitment to border enforcement, curbing illegal immigration, and entitlement fraud/abuse; and basically get right back on the same irresponsible, destructive path that the state was on before. (Since the majority of liberals reject organized religion, spirituality of any kind, and the existence of a higher power, they instinctively seek out power and ways to control other people. Having that control over other people and feeling like those people are dependent on them is what gives liberals purpose and makes them think their lives are meaningful in some way.)

    This is easy to predict accurately because liberalism has been around long enough for us to see its destructive pattern. Liberalism has two core ingredients that explain it continuing survival: (1) a pathological refusal to acknowledge failure (the failure of liberal policies is ALWAYS blamed on underfunding, GOP sabotage, and/or the wrong people being in charge); and (2) a stubborn refusal to learn from the past (liberals won’t accurately evaluate the past to begin with, so there is no possibility of learning from it anyway).
