To Be Expected
Attack Dog of the left_Senator Barbara Boxer
Yesterday in a Senate committee hearing in Washington DC a haggard looking and obviously bitter Senator from California made personal attacks against Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Senator Barbara Boxer of California was supposed to asking questions of the Secretary of State about the new plans being implemented by the Bush administration for redeploying troop levels in and around Baghdad, Iraq. The questioning turned into an unprovoked personal attack against Dr Rice. Senator Boxer had an unkempt appearance and looked a bit disoriented and her conduct was totally unbecoming of the dignity that should be demonstrated when conducting the business of the people. In quite the contrast, the Secretary of State appeared in her regular state of acute awareness, and was prepared to answer tough questions with intelligent answers about the new policies ready to be implemented.
The Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice sat there with great dignity and grace as is always the case with Dr. Rice as she responded to this onslaught of personal attacks by this out of control United States Senator. This behavior is to be expected from people that cannot come up with ideas of their own. Politicians like the junior Senator from California can only criticize others and add nothing but strife and contention to the conversation because of their own lack of understanding of the problems that this country is confronted with. The Democrat leadership sends Senators like Barbara Boxer out to attack and vilify administration officials like a trained attack dog because they know that their seats are safe from challenge and the classless, clueless Senator is all too willing to oblige.
Condoleezza Rice has dealt with every kind of representative from all the different countries of the world to protect the best interest of her country but to come home and be personally attacked by members of her own Government and a fellow citizen is uncalled for and downright despicable. The ignorant and uncalled for personal attacks against an honorable and extremely competent servant of people of the United States are a disgrace to your office and your country Senator Barbara Boxer.
The Wood Road
If I were to walk this way
Hand in hand with Grief,
I should mark that maple-spray
Coming into leaf.
I should note how the old burrs
Rot upon the ground.
Yes, though Grief should know me hers
While the world goes round,
It could not if truth be said
This was lost on me:
A rock-maple showing red,
Burrs beneath a tree.
