Dianne Feinstein won’t debate Elizabeth because she’s hoping November 6 comes and goes without too many Californians paying attention. Her reasons for not wanting to debate are obvious; she knows she can’t run on her record of increasing taxes, adding to the deficit and stifling economic growth with government red tape!
Feinsteins poll numbers are the worst they’ve ever been, while less than 40% of voters approve of her job performance! ( and still sinking)
Refusing to debate candidate Emken is a lose-lose situation for Californians.
Perhaps at 79 years of age the senior senator from California understands she would embarrass herself and as the ceremonial U.S. Senate Seat holder she may believe she has been anointed. Sorry Dianne, you are no “Princess Di” or Di Fi you will be leaving Washington for good in November.
If Feinstein is known for anything it would be for her proclivity to tax and spend when that is exactly the wrong prescription for the moribund and horrible economic she and her progressives have created in California.
Even the LA Times, in their article “Face your Rival Dianne,” thinks Feinstein would be foolish not to debate! That’s why I’m asking you to stand with Elizabeth Emken and demand Dianne Feinstein debate by signing the petition today.
Just the other day, one of Dianne Feinstein’s consultants called Elizabeth a “rhetorical joke.” He went on to say that Feinstein has no intention of debating her because, “She [Emken] is not a serious candidate in terms of her credentials or her experience.”
Such comments are arrogant, elitist and sorely out of touch, yet so very typical of Dianne Feinstein.
Elizabeth has years of experience in the private sector at IBM where she balanced budgets and made sure company resources were being spent efficiently. She’s also spent time in Washington advocating for children with disabilities and running a national non-profit organization.
While Feinstein has spent the last 4 terms living in a bubble only listening to those that sing in the progressive choir, Elizabeth earned 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. has more real life experience than Feinstein!
This will become abundantly clear when Elizabeth is given the chance to debate with Feinstein. Please sign a petition demanding Feinstein accept Elizabeth’s challenges. Flooding her office at the toll free number 1-866-220-0044 provides a nice personal touch while demoralizing her staff at the same time.
Please take a moment right now to sign the petition. Please consider making a generous contribution to Emken 2012.
