Stop the Presses. We Agree with Barbara Boxer!

We could count on 1 hand the number of times that this conservative blog has agreed with Senator Barbara Boxer. In fact, we could probably count the total on zero hands since I don’t recall a time that it has happened. When it comes to Iraq, we have to agree.

In a short statement sent to the press on Friday, Boxer said:

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), a senior member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, issued the following statement today on President Obama’s actions in Iraq:

“I fully support the President’s decision to act against these despicable and barbaric terrorists who pose a threat to the entire world.

“I also support the President’s humanitarian mission and call upon the rest of the world to join us in helping vulnerable victims who are facing terror and death.”

For someone who has been opposed to every form of conflict abroad over the years regardless of the circumstance, this is a big step for Boxer. Would she have shown this sort of support if the decision had come from Mitt Romney or another Republican? Probably not, but we’ll take what we can get. We don’t expect to agree much more in the future, but it’s good to see an occasional glimpse of sanity coming from the liberal Senator.

    Two of the things to worry about are the hhaetlcare law (ObamaCare) amd Medicare. For some strange reason Romney and Ryan get away with their claim to be saving Medicare while changing it drastically. And then they promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare. I think most people kind of like the idea that insurance companies spend premiums on the medical care of the insured. Most people think it is wrong for them to deny insurance or to cap benefits if you get sick so repeal is a big mistake. As to replace, what will it be replaced with and how many years (if ever) will that take.
