In true "Boyda-Pelosi" form, we have this press release.
In it, Nancy tried to explain why she agreed with the Democrat majority in the House that it was a good idea to spend the day voting for a do-nothing contempt resolution rather than voting to reauthorize FISA.
Nowhere in the statement, did Nancy say specifically why she was against FISA only some mumbo jumbo about the Constitution, which last time I checked did not apply to terrorists who don't live in the United States.
As I have previously pointed out, the Democrat majority has one, and only one complaint against the Senate-passed version of FISA - liability of telecommunications companies. They have one, and only interest group demanding that telecommunications companies be held liable for helping the government wire tap terror suspects - trial lawyers.
And we know, that the "first constituent" of the Second District is Steve Boyda - trial lawyer to the core. We also know that Nancy's number one campaign benefactor is - trial lawyers.
The reason Nancy is not going on the record as being pro-trial lawyer over being pro-national security is that the people of the Second District are overwhelmingly pro-national security and anti-greedy trial lawyer.
If I were the national republicans, I'd be running radio ads during this entire recess hitting her on taking trial lawyer contributions to stop investigating terrorists. If I had the money, I'd do it myself.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
