Boxer the protectionist?

John Seiler: Barbara Boxer just said of Carly Fiorina’s tenure as CEO of HP:

She fired 30,000 plus workers and shipped their jobs to China. It’s a record that is not a good one….  And I don’t think that people are going to think that’s a qualification.

So, is Boxer going to sponsor protectionist legislation to ban sending jobs to China? Or to ban China sending goods here?

Of course not. She’s just another bloviating hypocrite. And how about all the anti-business legislation she has backed, such as the finance “reform” bill about to be passed by Congress? Or how about the anti-business, bipartisan, Bush-signed Sarbanes-Oxley Act?

And has Barbara ever criticized top galpal Sen. Dianne Feinstein and DiFi’s husband, Richard Bloom, for making hundreds of millions investing in China and being involved in the Chinagate scandal?

“Forget it, Jake. It’s Chinatown,” Jack Nicholson is told in the memorable phrase at the end of the movie “Chinatown.”

I’d update that: Forget it, Jake. It’s California politics.
