I don't get it.
Did he misspeak?
What is his point here?
Or is he just old enough to be the next Democrat Presidential nominee?

Quote:

“I’m a proud Democrat, but first and foremost, I’m a proud Republican, and Democrat, and mostly, American,” former Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear said in a telecast from a diner in his home state.

Is it.... a hook thread title?

Oh look, ellipses? How did those get there?

I have no idea. I'm not even sure if he just swapped a word or mangled some phrasing. Maybe he was trying to say we're all Americans? Or not. Got me.

Sounds like he just mangled an attempt at a unity speech. The thrust of what he was attempting to do seems pretty obvious, but messed the phrasing up bad.

This is ... interesting ...

I'm a proud father, but first and foremost, I'm a proud mother, and father, and American.

Rather humorous. Not a great way to begin your grand opportunity to speak to a national audience.

Quote:
To clarify: Beshear is not a Republican. He simply misspoke here. In his prepared remarks, this sentence simply read, “I'm a proud Democrat, but first and foremost, I'm a proud American.”


http://www.npr.org/2017/02/28/516829714/democratic-response-...

I read that he was selected to give the response because he is not a potential candidate for President in 2020. Rather, he appears to be retired from elective office. Giving the response has hurt some potential candidates more than it helped them.

Didn't see it live, but two thoughts come to mind:

He means republican in the non-party sense...unlikely in a prepared speech.

He is doing a US version of Ghandi saying that he was a Muslim and a Jew and a Christian, meaning we are all people together.

Or he mangled something.

I think he was a republican at one time.


From the article:
Quote:
Beshear served two terms as Kentucky governor and one as lieutenant governor, in addition to four years as the state’s attorney general and six in its legislature — all as a Democrat.

He's been a Democrat since at least his first elected office in 1973.
