A majority of Americans believe we can win in Iraq. 53% now support winning, up from 42% in September. Is it any wonder that Nancy Boyda has softened her anti-winning rhetoric? Remember last August when she basically called a highly respected former general a liar and stormed out of the hearing where he said the surge was working.
Then starting in December, Boyda, along with many other Democrats started to admit the surge was working.
Boyda has been all over the place since this war began. She started out protesting it and leading a group of protestors to come to Washington, DC with the radical group ANSWER. Then, in 2004 while running for Congress, she backed away from the radical line and started saying we should support our troops so they could win. Then, in 2006, she changed again, riding the Democrat wave of defeatism and retreat into office.
After a brief episode on national television where she said she would support the surge, she then voted against it. She voted to withdraw our troops within a few months. She spoke out against the surge, saying it would not work.
Then there was the general incident. How sad.
Despite sheepishly admitting the surge was in fact working, she has since voted to deny the ability of our intelligence community to provide timely information to our troops in Iraq about potential terrorist activities, and to divert some of the CIA's precious time and resources to monitor global warming.
Had enough of this unprincipled and inconsistent voting pattern that will leave us less safe?
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
