Trust Becoming An Issue in Bebee's Base

Lefty (but not dumb) journalist Warwick Sabin has a piece out about Bebee's relationship with a homosexual advocacy group in Arkansas called the Stonewall Democrats.

The short of it is that Bebee met with the group, and pledged to fight measures like HB 1119 which would protect children from homosexuals becoming their foster or adoptive "parents". The bill was sponsored by Democrat Bob Adams in the House, and Senator Jim Holt, the Republican nominee for Lt. Governor, in the Senate. The bill passed the House but was bottled up in committee in the more liberal senate.

Shortly thereafter the courts ruled that state agency's could not block homosexuals from obtaining acess to children through the foster parent program or adoption. Agency's could not make that call, but the court left the door open to the legislature doing so. Suddenly bills like HB 1119 became hot news. Reporters started asking AG Mike Bebee what he thought of the issue. Initially, he gave a non-responsive answer, but literally hours after a meeting with his pollsters and other Democrats on the ticket, Bebee came out against placing children in homosexual households. This was of course, the exact opposite of what he told the Stonewall Democrats shortly before all this.

This means two things. First the smallest thing. One, Bebee had better try every trick in the book to keep Green Party Candidate Jim Lendall off the ballot. With him on it, pro-homosexual voters will have "someplace else to go", and Bebee's backstabbing could motivate them to do it. Can he keep Lendall off? No. I predict Bebee will lose that case within the next 60 days.

The big thing it means, for everyone who backs Bebee, is that they cannot trust the man who would be their next Governor. Any promises made to any of them are only valid so long as they don't have a chance to hurt the political career of Mike Bebee. That should give businessmen, farmers, and school administrators pause to reflect on the reliability of any promises made to them by Mr. Bebee. They have to wonder if they are trading their full support for an empty promise.

Now for the biggest thing, that goes beyond this race. The left is in a real pickle. To advace their interests they need politicians they can count on to keep abortion legal and to place children in homosexual households, but the kind of men who would make such promises are inherently untrustworthy. They are people who would trade away the rights and interests of children, born and unborn, to advance their own political career. Liberals should understand that any politico willing to trade away the children's rights will also trade away theirs!

It's not just the liberal who don't trust him, the average guy SHOULDN'T trust him or the democrat ticket. He, Halter and McDaniel got together and had a pollster tell them what their position should be on an issue of morality like Gay Adoption. Jim, Gunner, Asa, and the party should all be talking about this.

Zell Miller should talk about it. Mike Beebe will tell anybody whatever it takes to get their vote, even if it contradicts what he told somebody else 2 hours ago.

This shows that this ticket is the most secular and liberal ticket in the history of AR. Come on Republicans - don't let them get away with it.

The only ones talking about this are Warwick and Jim Lendall. We should ALL feel betrayed.

The question is "who is Mike Beebe lying to" Because he has to be lying to somebody.

I believe that gay rights issues will finally do what other extreme liberal issues (such as abortion, removing the bible and prayer from public schools, etc.) did not do. That is that the gay rights issues will finally undo the southern conservative democrat voting pattern of always voting (D) in November. Gay rights issues WILL BE the straw that breaks the camel's back, so to speak.

I think that Beebe and other libs are well aware of this fact. That is the only explanation for their behavior.

Unfortunately for lib politicians (fortunately for conservatives) the GLBT coalition is now demanding more for their support. They are now demanding respect and legitimacy from the people to which they give their support.

I, for one, hope that they keep demanding respect and honesty from those they support. It will flush out the politicians who have been supporting them behind the scenes all this time, and IT WILL be their demise.

The GLBT will get respect and honesty from the man they support- it will be Jim Lendall!

You're exactly right. Taking a little different path here, my question for Charlie Daniels is this: If there is some Arkansas law that wouldn't allow Jim Lendall on the ballot, how is it that a Green party candidate was on the ballot in the Presidential election of 2004? Or are you playing politics in an attempt to protect the Dem ticket? I think I'd be safe in betting on the latter.

After Perot took the state to court the ledge changed the laws so only PRESIDENTIAL candidates can get on the ballot with a paltry 1,000 signatures.

A good rundown of this is here...

It is not enough for the Dems that Bebee has to embarass himself by trying to keep Lendall off the ballot, but Charlie Daniels has to jump in there and make himself look bad too.

Jim LaGrone must be pleased that Daniels is working hard to get himself more distasteful media. I guess the election near-fiasco wasn't enough for Daniels.
