CONCORD – The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today released a new web video highlighting Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter’s flip-flop on the war in Afghanistan. Facing increasing pressure from the radical left wing of her party, Ms. Shea-Porter this week announced that she is “inclined” to drop her long-held support for a troop surge in Afghanistan (Concord Monitor, 12/4/09).
“During her 2006 and 2008 campaigns Congresswoman Shea-Porter repeatedly stated that we must redeploy troops to Afghanistan to win the war and destroy the terrorists that threaten our national security. Now she says that she’s ‘inclined’ to oppose the very same war strategy that she once championed,” said NHGOP Communications Director Ryan Williams. “This is just another indication that during her three years in Congress, Carol Shea-Porter has evolved into a double-talking, finger-in-the-wind, Washington politician.”
