She has never spent one day on the battlefield to understand what it takes to defend liberty. Her stance on late term abortion probably helped kill more innocent lives then any patriot in the U.S. Military while in defense of liberty.

Whatever, I listened to the audio. She called him General. She has apologetic and asked him to do her a favor and use her title. She said it was her "thing". He said ok and said Senator, she said thank you, they moved on.

Big deal

Sorry, but it takes a lot of achievements to ever even be considered for Senate.

Boxer was a congressperson and a President of The County Board of Supervisors. And she has been able to withstand two elections after her initial election to the Senate. To say that a General is somehow more important and more accomplished than a Senator shows how narrow-minded you are.

BTW, I was an Officer in the Navy, all it took to be an officer was a college education and the Military BEGGED me to stay when I said I was leaving, they even offered me about 75k to stay. Yeah, it's so tough to excel in the military.
OH yes she has done a great job in California....anyone want to move there?

You are confusing the point. It is because you align with her in position to which you offer an excuse for her behavior. You could be any side of the political spectrum, it matters not. It is the issue to which establishes the social position. Since she represents a position you hold to, she is above that of responsibility to her behavior in your view. If she were opposite to your social position, as you clearly identified, you would not offer the leniency that you do. This is evident by your statement:

Quote:
Well she did one thing right. I can forgive her for rudeness if she makes good decisions. The one below is a very good decision.
That is, she makes decisions that coincide with your self interest. Her behavior is excused even though you acknowledge it is poor behavior, yet because it aligns with your view, it is tolerated (ie accepted).

Specifically as it concerns the topic of elitist, your social alignment with her on those positions is believed to be above that of the behavior she elicited and so you excuse her out of a manner of your position, your own self interest.

An elitist believes themselves to be above things because of their status, their position, their value. They place standards of acceptable nature based on their view and those standards vary when views conflict. You would have a different acceptance of behavior if it were from someone that was not within your social position, your accepted realm. A single person can be an elitist of their own perceived position. Your example is that of one who places standards of acceptance and excuses or condemns based on how one falls into alignment with your social position.

Ma'am is a form of respect, just like Sir.

He should have just called her Bi*ch,it would have been far more accurate. Sometimes these "powerful" women take their feminist cr*p a little too far. And this is coming from a powerful woman.

LOL.

Really most of us in the South and Texas have been trained to say Ma'am and Sir.

Would a cop give you a ticket if you said "Sir" instead of "Officer"?

Good for her. She is a Senator and he is a General. Would he be ok with her calling him 'Mr.'?

It IS a big deal. If that was her thing she should send out a memo stating she wants to called senator not mame or anything else.

In the military a female superior can either be addressed as mame or their rank. The General did nothing wrong. Babs did when she corrected him in public. She is a typical elitist military despising lib and she showed it.

I find it astounding that this topic deserves this much attention in light of everything else that is going on in the country and the world.
