Patriot Axiom tracked down Senator Boxer on the streets of Oakland and asked some very simple questions.
Senator Boxer can run but she cannot hide. With Carly Fiorina ready to announce her candidacy against Boxer next week, the Senator will have to answer about her less than mediocre record for California in the U.S. Senate.
If Sen. Barbara Boxer, California Democrat, is successful in passing her bill to reduce carbon emissions, commonly called cap and trade, it would only be the fourth bill she’s championed that’s signed into law during her three terms as a U.S. senator.
When Mrs. Boxer, joined by former Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, brought their 821-page Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act to the floor Wednesday, critics noted that only three of the nearly 400 bills she has sponsored have ever been passed.
Brian Walsh, a spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said in an e-mail that Mrs. Boxer’s record could be summed up in three words: “Ineffective, polarizing and partisan.”
Mr. Walsh, looking ahead to that cycle, also said, “While her colleague Sen. [Dianne] Feinstein has had four times as many bills signed into law, Boxer has been content berating decorated generals and serving as the darling for the radical left. When you consider the many serious issues facing California right now, including the current fiscal crisis, you can bet Boxer’s ineffective and partisan record will be a central issue in her re-election bid next year.”
Indeed, Senator Boxer’s Senate record is fairly dismal – no matter how you count the tally.
Maybe this is the REAL reason why the Senator is running away.
