Andy Barr all over the map, literally and figuratively

Garland Hale Barr IV — also known as Andy Barr, the Republican gearing up for a rematch against Rep. Ben Chandler this year — has announced a “jobs tour” throughout several of the new districts in the 6th congressional district.

cn|2 reports that the first stop for Barr — a frequent critic of government spending, debt and the federal stimulus — is the opening of a private sector miracle that somehow escaped the crushing grip of President Obama’s socialist, job-killing policies.

Among his first stops will be Tuesday’s opening of the new Fleming County judicial center in Flemingsburg — a $13. 5 million project funded by the state government bonds.

State bonds? What a second…

In a telephone interview, Barr said the Fleming County courthouse opening is “a big deal” for Flemingsburg, and he will be attending major civic events as well as meeting with small business owners across the 6th District counties.

The only thing “big” about this appears to be the Big Government spending. Perhaps we’re missing something…

Barr wouldn’t say whether he thought the economy would be worse in the nation, Kentucky or even these counties had it not been for some of the stimulus funds or borrowed state money to invest in construction projects.

Wouldn’t say? Hasn’t every Republican on earth been saying non-stop for the last three years that the federal stimulus was a soul-crushing communist plot to turn America into a food stamp empire of Union Bosses and tyranny? Including… I don’t know, Andy Barr himself?

Instead, he said Washington continues to jeopardize future infrastructure projects.

“We’re not going to be able to make these investments in roads or courthouses or bridges … if we continue to have this kind of debt crisis,” Barr said.

So we won’t be able to spend money on government projects if we’re in debt. But spending money on infrastructure is good. But taxes should be lowered. But government spending itself is bad. And raising government revenues is bad. Even though debt is also bad. Because it limits government spending on infrastructure.

You still have about six months to get your messaging down, Andy. Now might be a good time to start working on that.
