Bush’s puppy is now ready to cut and run

After years of Browns nosing to President George Bush, Rep. Todd Tiahrt is now trying to distance himself from an obvious looser and buffoon. It’s a little late for that and even our own The Wichita Eagle, October 10, 2006, has pointed that out:

One television commercial for Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard, recounts how he disagreed with President Bush earlier this year on the Dubai port deal. It would seem that the purpose of the commercial is either to distance Tiahrt a bit from a struggling president or to counter criticism that he is a GOP soldier who does whatever the president orders.
If it’s the former, Bush must really be radioactive if a long-term congressman from a red state who is facing a little-known opponent feels the need to separate himself from Bush. If it’s the latter, is the Dubai deal -- which was nearly universally condemned in this country -- the biggest disagreement Tiahrt can come up with?
