Beebe plays the Florida card

Posted By on Tue, Aug 10, 2010 at 12:00 PM

Well, well. Gov. Mike Beebe shakes a little hot sauce on the race for governor, so far a tedious overhyping of planes, trains and automobiles by Republican Jim Keet.

Keet has one of his weekly newsers scheduled this afternoon to trash every major aspect of the Beebe record — education, spending, etc.

KUAR's Kelly MacNeil got a little pre-response from Beebe that she posted on Twitter.

Beebe says he's surprised Keet, after living in FL for 6 years, would play down the strides Ark. has made.

Indeed, if Arkansas is so bad, why was Keet so anxious to get home? My account of Keet's years in tax-free land is here.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
