San Francisco Chronicle: NO to Barbara Boxer!
Barbara Boxer had to know that this day would eventually ensue.
That being the day when her 18 years of insolence, arrogance, and ineptness in the United States Senate would be exposed, leading to hearty and viable opposition to her continued “service” on behalf of California.
However, in her wildest dreams Boxer probably never imagined that her candidacy would be rejected by the San Francisco Chronicle, the rag that always supports left-wingers like Boxer.
Yet, there it is, in black and white for all the world to see.
From the September 26, 2010 San Francisco Chronicle editorial, in part (See Reference):
“Californians are left with a deeply unsatisfying choice for the U.S. Senate this year. The incumbent, Democrat Barbara Boxer, has failed to distinguish herself during her 18 years in office. There is no reason to believe that another six-year term would bring anything but more of the same uninspired representation. It is extremely rare that this editorial page would offer no recommendation on any race, particularly one of this importance. This is one necessary exception.
“For some Californians, Boxer’s reliably liberal voting record may be reason enough to give her another six years in office. But we believe Californians deserve more than a usually correct vote on issues they care about. They deserve a senator who is accessible, effective and willing and able to reach across party lines to achieve progress on the great issues of our times. Boxer falls short on those counts.
“In past elections, Boxer has had the good fortune of having Republican opponents who were inept, underfunded, on the fringe right – or combinations thereof. Her opponent this time, (Carly) Fiorina, is proving to be articulate, well-funded and formidable.
“It is a dismal choice between an ineffective advocate for causes we generally support and a potentially strong advocate for positions we oppose. Neither merits our endorsement for the U.S. Senate.”
Granted, the Chronicle’s rejection of Madam Boxer is driven by the fact that editors see Boxer as an obstacle to the complete Marxist take-over of America.
And it is true that the Chronicle’s failure to endorse Fiornia suggests that liberal insanity is still a major health issue in the editorial board room of this once- esteemed publication.
Still, at least the Chronicle editors have finally seen fit to call out Boxer for her ineffective and wasteful occupation of a vital seat in the U.S. Senate.
On that, we can agree!
