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.
