More Beshear hypocrisy
During Tuesday night’s gubernatorial debate, Steve Beshear gave us another blatant example of the hypocrisy upon which his campaign is built.
Responding to questions about illegal immigration, Beshear said it’s not the state’s responsibility to enforce federal immigration laws.
Funny, but Beshear didn’t have that same attitude toward the federal government when he was attorney general from 1979-1983. During that term, he was only too happy to enforce a United States Supreme Court decision about the posting of the 10 Commandments on public property, including public schools.
Wonder why it was OK for Attorney General Beshear to enforce a federal court ruling about the 10 Commandments way back then, but now potential Gov. Beshear doesn’t think the state should be enforcing federal laws?
Could it be that removing the Decalogue from places of public prominence is part of the political agenda for Beshear and others of his liberal ilk, but that protecting our borders and our government budgets from the threats posed by illegal immigrants isn’t a priority for Democrats?
Or could it just be that Beshear’s a hypocrite?
We vote for about 15 percent of the former and 85 percent of the latter, especially given Beshear’s history of ignoring and not enforcing merit system laws as attorney general while basing his entire campaign of late on criticizing Ernie Fletcher for alleged personnel law violations.
