Letter to the Editor: Ryun a Dud

From today's Topeka Capital-Journal:

A Record of Helping

I'm responding to the letter from Joe White of Denison regarding Nancy Boyda. I worked for Rep. Boyda during the last election. I got to know her well and saw her deep concern for the problems we have in Kansas and the nation.

She visited Fort Riley and went to hear the concerns at Fort Leavenworth. She has gone to Iraq to see first-hand the conditions there and to visit with our soldiers from Kansas.

Has Jim Ryun shown any concern about what our soldiers are enduring in the war zone?

I've seen Jim Ryun's TV ads. I haven't seen any mention of what he has done for Kansas, or our country. His advertisement touts his running ability many years ago — showing Jim running as a young man. We all know he was a medalist during the Olympics, but this is old news. I have followed his track record in Congress (no pun intended). The way I see it, he only voted the way his peers in the Republican party told him to.

We have Rep. Nancy Boyda, who is working hard for us in Congress. Let's re-elect someone who has a real record of working for us in Washington.

FLORENE V. JOHNSON, Topeka

Wonderful letter- an a great point. Why change horses in mid-stream? Particularly for a old, brokendown racehorse...

Yeah, Nancy is completely different.

I mean, its not like she votes with the party leadership 94% of the time or anything.

Oh, wait...

she's been a breathe of fresh air- she works hard, she's home, and she's looking out for regular kansans, not multimillionaires and big business.

A breath of fresh air that votes 94% with Nancy Pelosi? Regular Kansans like all the labor unions? Her FEC report is littered with massive donations from decidedly non-Kansas entities. These union PACs aren't just giving here and there to Nancy Boyda-they are maxing out. Why? Last time I checked we are a Right to Work state.
