Nancy Boyda is one slick operator.
Ask yourself this question, why would Nancy Boyda skip the Democrat love-fest last weekend?
The Demofest has been on the calendar for quite some time now, but Nancy Boyda in the last couple of weeks decided to go to Iraq. Going to Iraq is a good thing for the newly minted Rep, but why last weekend? Why not take in the kudos from Clinton and Sebelius?
Answer, she's positioned herself firmly in the I support the liberal Democrat agenda of Nancy Pelosi camp in Washington, but she still is trying to portray herself as "independent" back in Kansas.
Boyda could have picked from many, many trips to Iraq. She could have gone during the recent President's Day recess. She could go during the upcoming Spring Break. The only way to explain it is that she chose to skip the big Democrat gathering on purpose. She did not want her face on the front page of the newspapers with Sebelius and Clinton - even Paul Morrison. She's trying to sell her image to the Independents and Moderate Repubicans she fooled into voting for her the first time. She can't very well do that by wrapping her arms around a liar like Bill Clinton.
I, for one, will constantly remind people of the liberal positions she takes and the political paybacks she makes in Washington. The people of Kansas deserve to know where she really stands. They need to know that when they voted for change, it wasn't a change for the better. They voted to change the values represented in Washington to those of Nancy Pelosi and the elitist liberals. They voted to change from a Congressman who took principled stands on the issues, to one who's opinion changes faster than the weather. They voted to send someone to Washington who either doesn't care about our military bases or didn't care enough to find out she was voting to cut funding for them. And, they need to know she is voting to pay back the unions for neary a quarter of a million dollars in campaign contributions.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
