McAuliffe is one of the most intellectually dishonest people I’ve ever had the displeasure of listening to and he’s linked to millions in questionable fundraising and stock deals.
Basically, he represents everything that’s wrong with the Clinton wing of the Democratic party.
In a three-minute video e-mailed to supporters yesterday afternoon, McAuliffe, 51, said a two-month tour of the state convinced him that his business and political experience prepared him to work on issues of concern to Virginians: creating jobs, improving public schools and working toward energy independence.
McAuliffe did not mention his competitors in the June Democratic primary, state Sen. R. Creigh Deeds of Bath County and former state delegate Brian J. Moran of Alexandria. Instead, he sought to contrast himself directly with the Republican nominee, Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell, and to portray himself as a natural successor to former Democratic governor Mark R. Warner, who was elected in November to the U.S. Senate, and Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D).
Warner and Kaine, McAuliffe said, “know that not every good idea comes out of Richmond. When it comes to fixing our economy, there’s no such thing as a Republican job or a Democratic job. It’s about bringing people together to create good jobs.” McDonnell, in contrast, has opposed the Warner and Kaine administrations for seven years, McAuliffe said.
I’d rather have the Republican in this seat than McAuliffe. Seriously. That’s how radioactive this joker is. He has absolutely ZERO experience building bridges, and in a state that’s becoming more moderate by the day, his politics would be poisonous.
Hopefully one of the Dems can knock him off in the primaries, although with McAuliffe’s connections that could prove difficult.
More as it develops…
