Cowardly Conway Not Your Liberal Hero

Attention Jack, and you, too, Adam Edelen:  Alison Lundergan Grimes lost by 15 points to the Most Hated Man in the Commonwealth because she pretended she hadn't voted for Barack Obama.

Steve Beshear is the most popular politician in Kentucky because he refuses to run away from his president, his party leader and the man whose signature legislation is saving the lives of thousands of Kentuckians.

Failing to notice, comprehend and act on these two facts is political malpractice.

Nick Storm at CN2:

With President Barack Obama making his first presidential visit to Kentucky since 2011, Democrats on the ballot in 2015 are seeking geographical distance when Air Force One touches down.


Democratic Auditor Adam Edelen, who is running for a second term in office, said Tuesday that he has plans to be in eastern Kentucky when Obama visits Louisville on Thursday.


Attorney General Jack Conway, who is the presumptive Democratic nominee for governor, told reporters this week he too had official business in the eastern portion of the state later this week.

Still, Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear, who is term limited in his position, said he planned to meet with Obama during his trip to the state and dismissed the political ramifications of Obama’s visit.

“Look, I’m happy anytime the president of the United States comes to Kentucky, particularly if he’s coming to talk about the economy or jobs, because that has been my top priority for the last seven and a half years,” Beshear said.
 Eastern Kentucky my ass. Not just cowards: morons and liars, too.
