Nixon Campaigns in Kirksville. Will He This Time Reimburse Taxpayer’s for Use of His Official Vehicle?

Jay Nixon took his press release only campaign back to Kirksville this week. As our readers remember, we posted a video last year of our illustrious attorney general attending a private fundraiser in Kirksville in his taxpayer supplied vehicle.

Dubbed as the “Main Street” tour, Nixon claimed he was there to “listen to the concerns of Missourians, especially small businessman.”

“Some of the economic challenges we’re seeing today is job growth not being what it used to be, foreclosure issues, a drop in economic activity and the unemployment rate going up.”

I can tell you, coming from an entrepreneurial background, small businessmen are especially concerned with being taxed out of business by tax and spend liberals, especially those who have a total disregard for the taxpayer by cruising around campaigning on their dime.

Accompanying Nixon on the trip was former Truman State University president Jack Magruder. Now if you ever had any doubts that academia is predominately liberal, read how Macgruder fawns over No Way Jay’s “agenda for education.”

“I like [Nixon’s] agenda for education from the very beginning all through the University level,” Magruder said. “The thing I like about him is that he couples improvement in the quality of education, improvement of the access and lowering tuition with the whole concept of job creation and economic development for our state.”

Every politician -on both sides of the aisle – have expressed similar sentiments! What’s so groundbreaking about this?
