Response to BlueStreak (Reply #65)

70. Barbara Boxer was OUTSTANDING on TRMS tonight

She was so calm and collected, and just went through the issues in a reasonable, non-hysterical way.

She nailed the 100,000 troops that are in the 47%
She called attention to the seniors that are in the 47% and reminded everybody they paid a lifetime for the benefits they are now receiving, and paid income taxes over a lifetime.
She specifically talked about a disabled person for whom just getting dressed in a major undertaking. They don't think of themselves as victims, but people with a shred of humanity try to help.

And then she beautifully turned this all back to Romney's own tax returns.

It was brilliant and she never raised her voice a bit. It was almost as if she was showing pity in Romney, although she was not condescending. Pity is the right tone for this man now.

Great job, Barbara!!!
