In the most favorable light, Nancy Boyda's explanation to the Manhattan Mercury of her snit toward General Keane could be called "a distinction without a difference," or what's known in the world of politics as "spin." And, she's not very good at it.
She said she did not walk out of the meeting itself, but merely ''stepped into a little room'' adjacent to the meeting for five minutes, then returned.
Earth to Nancy, if you left the room, you left the meeting. You said directly into the C-SPAN camera that you had to "leave."
Boyda was in Manhattan talking to officials about growth caused by the return of the Big Red One, somthing she had nothing to do with. If Boyda was truly an independent voice, she'd give credit to Jim Ryun for the work he did to help bring the Big Red One back. I'm sure you don't have to read the article to know that she didn't.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
