Barbara Boxes Bush With Facts

What is that I hear - more Bush kaka?

While many in the Senate and House sit in the pimpingly predictable lazy, haze of lobbyist funded excess, Barbara Boxer is one of few who feels the true calling of office.

She has risen to the occasion, despite the enslaught of right wing slime foisted on both McKinney and her, to stand in the truth and demand answers (on camera).

She also writes a column for the Daily Kos: Thursday January 27, 2005

Barbara Boxer at Daily Kos

Senator Barbara Boxer has a diary at Daily Kos and writes about her appreciation to the blogoshphere for supporting her position on Condi Rice. Here's a bit:

I can't thank all of you enough -- the Daily Kos community, and the blogosphere as a whole -- for all of your effective work during the recent debate over Condoleezza Rice's nomination. Your support and participation in this critical debate meant so much to me.

.... You helped to get our message out to millions of Americans -- I couldn't have done it without you. And you made a difference. You gave me the voice I needed to ask the tough questions during Dr. Rice's confirmation hearings. And you gave the entire United States Senate the voice it needed to take its "advice and consent" responsibility seriously. In fact, Condoleezza Rice received 13 votes against her confirmation -- the most votes against any Secretary of State's nomination since 1825.

Boxer, like McKinney, frequently stands alone, unsupported and truthful, in a corrupt congress where the decisions are based on how much a corporation kicked in to get their laws passed.

The public sees the most corrupt administration in the history of the United States of America and the complete and utter inability of the Congress to enforce the law and hold them accountable - because they too are corrupt.

Thank YOU Ms. Boxer for having the courage to think for yourself and not behave like the pack animal so many have become.

From her web site:

Why won't President Bush answer questions about Jack Abramoff?

Join 25,559 Americans and email your Senators!
The American people deserve to know the truth about the extent of Jack Abramoff's relationship with the Bush Administration, and how that may have corrupted policy decisions.

That's why I have co-sponsored a "sense of the Senate" amendment, along with my colleagues John Kerry and Frank Lautenberg, urging the White House to provide the American people with a thorough account of the meetings the President, his staff, and senior executive branch officials had with disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

After all, it's not George Bush's White House -- it's the people's White House -- and it is long past time they got an unobstructed look into their own government. If the President has nothing to hide, there shouldn't be a problem.

It's time for the White House to come clean about Jack Abramoff. Urge you Senators to support my amendment today!

Rock on Barbara, may the force be with you.
