Boyda criticizes Bush’s new plan for Iraq

January 13, 2007


U.S. Rep. Nancy Boyda, D-Topeka, on Friday criticized the Bush administration's new plan for the Iraq war that includes a troop surge.

Boyda said she believed there was no evidence that Iraqis would be able to take more of a leadership role under the plan. She also said she would vote against a nonbinding resolution to support the plan and against funding it if the troop surge were presented separately.

On Friday, Boyda's staff announced she would be a member of the Readiness and Military Personnel subcommittees in the House.

Kansas Adjutant Gen. Tod Bunting also announced Friday that the 1st Battalion, 161st Field Artillery unit, headquartered in Wichita, would remain in Iraq for possibly 125 more days and return in the summer with the U.S. Army's 1st Brigade, 34th Division as part of the president's plan.

Dambudzo, you want the truth? YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Care to elaborate on "She needs to stick to female objectives"? (Do they have anything to do with being "in the kitchen, barefoot, and pregnant"?)

Boyda won the election not because she had answers, but because she had questions,

Now she back flips from her first attempt at taking a stand. Turns out the pool she dove into, blinded and headfirst, was hard and unwelcoming.

Now, three days later, she has changed her position....sort of.

It will be a very lOOOOOOOOONNNNGGGG two years for NE Kansans when it comes to expecting wise representation in Congress.

I think Nancy took on more that she could chew. I bet all those that voted her in now reget voting for her. I hope that Ryan runs against her and wins.

Isn't this a flip flop from her answers to Charlie Gibson? Said then that she would vote for funding, no?

Any charges of flip-flopping by people who don't like Boyda are MOOT (see Bush, George W. "Stay the course." "We've never been stay the course.").

And Rosie, I'm still glad RyUn was voted out. He did nothing for Kansans while in congress.
