The day after Boyda stuck her foot in her mouth about her new and improved stance on supporting the President's plan for Iraq, she let her staff try to dig her out of a hole with Republicans while taking a blitz from the left.
Here's my favorite excerpt from a great post attacking her from the left:
To quote my friend, John Amato at Crooks and Liars, "Is she kidding me? Earth to Bodya, we just had another election and the American people realized they made a mistake and voted YOU in to make a change. You're supposed to be part of the solution now, not another Rubber Stamper."
Her willingness to lie (change her story, take a new position, be a complete hypocrite) at the drop of a hat is going to continue to get her in trouble.
OK, my actual favorite excerpt is here:
But Boyda sounds even more like she doesn't know what the hell she's talking about when she follows her colleagues' statements by saying she's not comfortable voting to enable a troop surge "without a clear mission" -- and then turns right around and basically says she'll be a rubber-stamp for whatever Bush wants.
OK, I can't resist, here's more. The first excerpt from Think Progress is from the authors, then some of the comments:
"Boyda is wrong on the facts."
"Gibson: Didn’t the voters in your district think they were getting someone with a brain?
Boyda: They should have thought about that before they voted for me."
"Deflecting blame onto the voters after they put you into office is not a good choice of tactics there deary. What you say and what you vote for or against will be big issues in your re-election bid and that’s really not far off."
"This woman needs to do some reading before she goes on television and make such statements."
And the comments go ON, and ON.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
