Mike Beebe: Strike One On Economic Development!

When we first reported that Maria Haley, the shady Clinton fundraiser with ties to China, was to head Beebe's economic development team, we knew she was out of her league. We did, however, think that she might be able to land the Toyota deal given her Asian ties.

During his State of the State address, Governor Beebe said "We must put a special focus on the industries of the 21st century that will ensure our long term economic success."

In Mike Beebe's first attempt to bring new jobs and wages to Arkansas, Mike Beebe failed miserably. Instead Toyota is locating across the river in Mississippi. Apparently Republican Governor Haley Barbour was able to land new paying jobs for his constituents.

If Beebe was going to bring in Maria Haley, who has such strong albeit shady ties to the Asian community, how come they couldn't even land Toyota? Is this the kind of Economic Development Beebe was talking about during his campaign?
