Is Sen. Barbara Boxer (search), D-Calif., the real victim of last week's confirmation hearing for Secretary of State-designate Condoleezza Rice?
"She turned and attacked me," the California Democrat said in a televised interview, describing the confrontation during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing.
"I gave Dr. Rice many opportunities to address specific issues. Instead, she said I was impugning her integrity," Mrs. Boxer said.
Boxer Rebellion: Vicious or Victim?
A sample of your responses:
Vicious, period! There is a BIG difference between "tough questions" and calling someone a LIAR and the Democrats better learn the difference. "Folks" are fed up with "differences of opinions" being used as an excuse by the Democrats to call the president, Dr. Rice and many others "LIARS!" Daschle knows the Moore-Soros talking points are not working... Kennedy, Boxer, and Kerry have yet to learn!

I have great respect for Condi Rice and hope that the democrats' sour apples are soon off the front pages of the news. I'm SURE Barbara Boxer has always said and done it all right! Ha, Ha, Ha! Best of luck to Condi and tell her I'm praying for her.

Boxer is wrong and rude.
All I can say is what a nut! She does not represent the party of my Grandfather! She accuses Dr. Rice of being blinded with loyalty to the Administration: Wow, lets look at Sandy Berger: How blinded with loyalty was he when he stole papers that made Clinton look bad on terrorism? Where was Boxer’s outrage?
Barbara Boxer is a big mess... and very goofy.
She's whining for the sake of whining and because she's a bitter out-of-touch fringe lunatic ultra-liberal.
Condaleezza Rice is on the money, BB is out of touch with reality.
I believe that politics were invovled with Boxer's comments but in reality, she was just upset at her hairdresser and took it out on Ms. Rice. Have a great day! Go President Bush!
In the name of "fair and balanced", shouldn't you point out that Sen. Boxer lied about the resolution to go to war. It was not "WMDs period." Also she lied about the number of soldiers from her home state. It was not 25% of the casualties.
Ms. Boxer went beyond tough questions and attempted to smear Dr. Rice. Just as LT Kerry is only electable in his home state, Ms. Boxer only has her job because she is from CA. She picked this fight! Now she needs to live with the results. Or she could run for the chair of the DNC

Ms. Boxer is the typical "Sour Grapes" Democrat that still has not, nor will not, accept the fact that the Democratic party lost the election because they had a loser running.
Ms. Boxer has a long history of snide attacks and sideways blows. It's good to see her be required to take responsibility for what she says and how she says it.
