From the Cap Journal "pardon us if we're more than a little nervous."
Democrat Appropriations Chairman Dave Obey rushed to Boyda's defense after the vote and Boyda started taking heat, saying money for Fort Riley would be put in a later bill. Why is it that Boyda is needing defending? Is it possible she just went along with the Democrats' efforts to gut some military spending? Remember during the campaign when she promised BRAC money would be fully funded? What happened to her promise? Did she fail to read the bill? These are questions Nancy Boyda should answer.
In the Journal World, Boyda blamed Republicans for the funding problem.
Nancy, blaming Republicans is no longer your campaign theme. Democrats are in charge now and need to answer for your screw ups.
Anyone else remember when Boyda would criticize Jim Ryun for not speaking up earlier on in the process. If Boyda actually had been tracking this critical issue, she would have spoken out against it as it was being passed, not after the fact when she got called on the carpet by Kansans.
But here's my favorite part of the "explanation" tour. In talking to 49 News Boyda said, “I regret this has become so personal and so political so early in the season,” Boyda explained.
I'm sorry Nancy, but this isn't the campaign anymore. You can't just run around and say people are throwing mud at you without actually answering for your screw ups. Remember in the campaign when you changed your position on building a border fence, but then lied and told the media you never said you opposed building a fence. And, you suggested in your commercials that Jim Ryun was lying about you and running a Washington campaign.
Well Nancy, you have been in Washington about a month and you already sound like a veteran - trying to spin your way out by saying that this is somehow a personal vendetta against you. What's personal is the funding our troops at Fort Riley and Fort Leavenworth were depending on and you voted to cut.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
