Smackdown: Tom Kean vs Mike Beebe

Tom Kean, Chairman of the 9/11 Commission, stepped into the muck of the Arkansas Governor's race that has been created by Mike Beebe. Without facts to back it up, Beebe has attacked Asa Hutchinson's record in the Department of Homeland Security and his "understanding" of security issues.

If nothing else Mike Beebe has said in this campaign makes you question his honesty and leadership ability, this should. This is so ironic it is laughable. Asa is infinitely more experienced and qualified in matters of homeland security than Beebe will ever be.

Word of these ridiculous attacks made their way to 9/11 Commission Chairman Tom Kean who spent years studying the events leading up to 9/11 and the action taken to secure our country after the terrorist attacks. Chairman Kean took the time to write a letter in defense of Asa and condemn Beebe's attacks as "petty politics".

Beebe feels boxed in, Red. He is flat fighting for his life right now and this is one component of his approach. However, it will fall flat since it is a clear attack on Asa's character. Most Arkansans don't take kindly to that.
