Last Friday afternoon, Greg Fischer appeared on Joe Elliott’s show saying that he had complete confidence that Kentucky Kingdom would reopen as Bluegrass Boardway by the Koch Family. He went on to sing their much-deserved praises:[audio:http://thevillevoice.com/audio/fischeronkk.mp3]
You’ll note that Fischer admitted on-air that he had received assurances from the Kochs. Meaning he did, indeed, have contact with them and knew what was going on – despite his claims to the contrary.
Also entertaining to listen to him not have much of a clue about the realities of the financial impact on the metro area.
Fast forward to three hours later and his office was spinning like crazy to combat negative news about the Kochs backing out of the deal.
If that doesn’t illustrate just how far in over his head Greg Fischer is on matters like this? Nothing will.
