Are you kidding me? According to the LJ World, Nancy Boyda said, "I think it’s time to say ‘President Bush, Congress no longer authorizes you to take this war in the direction we’re going."
For those of you who have been following the twists and turns of Boyda's war position, this week Boyda is playing to the anti-Iraq vote in Kansas.
But, on May 30th, she said, "I'm going to vote to fund the war." This was obviously aimed at our military communities and other patriotic citizens who don't want our troops cut off while in harms' way.
Boyda tapped into the anti-Iraq sentiment last year, calling to withdraw our troops when she announced her candidacy last April. Yet, by October, she changed positions saying she would wait for the Baker-Hamilton Commission to report first. Then this winter, she said she would support the what the President decided on the surge. Then, she voted against the surge.
Democrats were swept into majorities in Congress because of Iraq. Maybe these ever changing positions on the issue are why Democrat approval ratings in Congress are as low as Republicans were when they were in charge.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
