Well, it’s almost three weeks late, but the Gatewood Galbraith campaign finally released a statement on Governor Steve Beshear snubbing President Obama and the folks that got bin Laden (fyi, Osama bin Laden is dead, and the AP has called the race for Alison Lundergan Grimes):
An Apology to All Military Families
On this Memorial Day, on behalf of the citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Gatewood Galbraith and Dea Riley would like to apologize to all members of the military, veterans and their families for the recent actions of Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear.
Gov. Steve Beshear recently snubbed of the President, the Vice President and those special forces operatives at Fort Campbell who were responsible for the demise of Osama Bin Laden. Governor Beshear was too busy attending social events at Churchill Downs to honor the sacrifice of those wearing the uniform of this country.
Simply put, Beshear was afraid to be photographed standing next to the President because he thought it might cost him votes in Kentucky. His behavior was totally unacceptable for a Governor of Kentucky.
Once again, Beshear’s actions show he puts partisan political gain ahead of doing the right thing. Shame on you Governor, for putting your self-interest above men and women who risk their lives to defend this country.
A former Marine, Gatewood Galbraith promises that when it comes to supporting our troops and their families he will always stand with them and their Commander and Chief.
Some things are bigger than getting elected Governor of Kentucky.
Can’t argue with that. Still dumb, after all these years..
This release is kind of interesting, though. Gatewood’s going to be dancing and weaving from the left to the right over the next 6 months, hoping to suck up as many votes from each as he can. Personally, I think he has the potential to take the most votes from David Williams. We’ll have to wait and see if Gatewood agrees, but this might raise some eyebrows.
