This is getting bad. As many of you know, Fort Lee (the Army's logistical training post located 30 miles south of Richmond) gained close to 10,000 jobs as a result of the BRAC process. In fact, Fort Lee gained the largest amount of active duty military jobs in the country during the last round of BRAC.
Just last year, close to a Billion dollars worth of construction additions/improvements began to start at the base. Governor Kaine has been invited to attend EIGHT events and celebrations at Fort Lee regarding the vast job expansion. Governor Kaine has refused to personally attend any event. The largest job creation in the history of Central Virginia is the 10,000 plus jobs that Fort Lee has gained through BRAC and the Governor flat out declines to attend any events there. IN FACT, he has declined EIGHT invitations to attend events.
Instead, what are the events that Governor Kaine is attending? Events in Kansas and Texas this weekend...hanging out with Michelle Obama this weekend. The lady who has never been proud to be an American in her adult life. Governor Kaine must not be proud of the job expansion at Fort Lee. Governor Kaine did nothing to land the jobs there, Congressman Forbes did the heavy lifting. You would think that his nibs could at least show up to bask in undeserving credit and faux admiration. Come to think of it, these must be the reasons why Kaine is campaigning in Kansas and Texas this weekend with Barrack Hussein Obama.
Governor Kaine professes to want to help veterans and the military in Virgina, so why then does his Administration fail to have a veteran serving in his Cabinet? Is there a pattern developing here? No vets in his cabinet, he declines eight invitations to meet with officials at Fort Lee, and now he is campaigning with somebody's wife who has admittedly never been proud of the United States in her adult life. The localities around Fort Lee need substantial funding for improvements to their transportation systems to facilitate the influx of up to 10,000 new families in the area. Some of the monies raised from last years transportation package were going to fund transportation improvements in these effected localities. Now that funding is in great peril. Instead of focusing on meeting the transportation needs of these incoming military families and the localities where they will be living, Governor Kaine has chosen to campaign out of state. We have a problem folks. Governor Kaine's priorities are not in order. The national political scene, all of its seductions and trappings, have gone to our Governor's head.
