Ah yes the best laid plans of mice and men and even Dianne Feinstein are about to go up in smoke on November 6th. Yes the party is almost over for the Tax and Spend Senior Senator from California.
While she prattles on about her unfinished business the voters in California are coming to their own conclusion. If they want more of the same, companies leaving the state and the country, more lost jobs then they will stick with her. Those wanting to break with the old and vote for the new are backing Elizabeth Emken.
Elizabeth graduated from UCLA in 1984 with dual degrees in Economics and Political Science. Her studies included course work at Cambridge University, where she focused on political and economic issues in China and the Middle East.
For many years, Elizabeth served in management, financial analysis, and corporate operations at IBM. As an efficiency and cost cutting expert, Elizabeth utilized activity-based cost analyses to identify administrative savings across IBM U.S. – helping
streamline operations, eliminate waste, and save the company millions of
At this morning’s California Delegation breakfast in Charlotte, Sen. Dianne Feinstein informed the Democratic National Convention delegates in attendance that she was, indeed, running for yet another term, according to the Sacramento Bee:
“I didn’t know if I would do that or not, but I did,” the 79-year-old Democrat added over the applause. “I believe my work as a United States senator is not yet complete.”
Apparently the ethically challenged senator still believes there are more taxpayer dollars she can direct to her husband Richard Blum’s company to increase the families net worth. What’s $25 billion dollars among close friends?
Feinstein, who is seeking a fourth full term in the Senate, pledged to protect abortion rights, fight for new legislation to renew the federal assault weapons ban and pursue an overhaul of immigration laws. She also spoke of continuing her work as chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Finally and for the first time Feinstein has a serious challenger, Elizabeth Emken. Emken is the polar opposite of the aging senator and Feinstein is too clueless to begin to comprehend the situation.
Mrs. Emken is against abortion, a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment, and will work with Republicans in the House and Senate on the immigration issue in which Feinstein is only heard on the topic during election season.
In an interview with reporters after the talk, the senator dismissed the notion that she considered not running again this year. She said she always intended to be a candidate and will “absolutely” fill out her six-year term if elected again.
Feinstein’s campaign has shot down Republican challenger Elizabeth Emken’s requests to debate. The senator would not discuss the decision with reporters after her speech. “I’m running my own campaign and that’s really my only comment,” she said.
If Dianne Feinstein honestly believes that her work as a United States Senator is ‘not yet complete,’ what in the world has she been waiting for? Twenty-years as an entrenched incumbent, three years since she and her fellow Senate Democrats have bothered to pass a budget, and not one word about creating jobs and keeping businesses in California. No wonder she’s ducking debates.“
