Peter Kinder Hates High Speed Rail

Via Jason Rosenbaum, here's a video of Lt. Governor Peter Kinder dissing high-speed rail and praising Republican Governors who refused federal money for high-speed rail lines. Kinder refers to high-speed rail as "19th-century technology."

So much for capturing any of the urban enthusiast vote.

  1. Do they really want to go down in history as the party of absolute buffoonery and stupidity? Rail is the only efficient transportation resource that will be available if we reactivate it on a local level.
    In my head they just repeat over and over again "Do nothing! Down with unions! Give huge tax breaks to the wealthy! Everything will always be the same! The Earth has a creamy nougat of cheap oil!" and people cheer for them.
