Carly Fiorina injects global warming into her race with Barbara Boxer
Carly Fiorina, former Hewlett-Packard CEO, and likely GOP nominee for the Senate seat held by Barbara Boxer has made the Democrat's support of global warming as a "national security threat" a campaign issue in the 30 second commercial:
Woman: Barbara Boxer on national security?Sen. Boxer: One of the very important national security issues we face, frankly, is climate change.Fiorina: Terrorism kills. And Barbara Boxer is worried about the weather. I'm Carly Fiorina. I ran Hewlett Packard. I chaired the external advisory board for the CIA. We've had enough of her politics. I'll work to keep you safe. I'm Carly Fiorina, and I approve this message. [Fiorina Ad: "Safe," 6/2/10]
Note that Fiorina is mocking global warming as a national security threat, not puncturing the hoax itself, only its elevation to a national security issue.
The warmist scare is losing traction. Should Fiorina win the nomination next Tuesday, and press this line of criticism of Boxer, we shall see if even blue state Californians have had enough of the scam.
Our friends at Media Matters point out that Boxer didn't come up with warming as a national security concern on their own, citing official DoD statements inspired by the political line coming down from above. We shall see if the voters buy it.
