Cuccinelli is a nut for what he did with the UVA emails. I could never vote for a guy who picks ideology over reason. And I'm a conservative!

"I promise to remember even more of the hundreds and thousands of dollars worth of contributions and gifts that I 'forgot' about, and to recuse myself from any other cases in which I may have participated in criminal activity" cooch

also, what the heck is a 'yogurt parlor', sounds like the type of place that might be frequented by hooligans and undesirables.

VA Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Terry McAuliffe, has been campaigning for one of the most hotly contested governor’s races in the nation promoting himself as a “businessman and job creator” who will make creating and sustaining VA jobs his “number one priority.”

However, the news stories coming out of Richmond’s Channel 12 over the last couple of nights have cast the Former Clinton campaign manger’s claims into very serious doubt.

The business over which Mr. McAuliffe formerly served as chairman is called GreenTech Automotive. The company builds electric cars – well, sort of…

There is no actual evidence that the company has produced anything more than a few test model vehicles that were spotted driving around the parking lot of the Hornlake, Mississippi production facility, potentially, as nothing more than a show for the NBC Affiliate news cameras that were seen taping footage there recently.

Mr. McAuliffe, along with his investors from China, made lofty promises of bringing five thousand jobs to the US and opening a brand new three-hundred square foot electric car factory in Tunica, Mississippi by 2012. The fact is that it is now 2013 and the Tunica, Mississippi factory-site is nothing more than a field of grass.
The residents of the small town of Tunica were genuinely hanging their hopes on Mr. McAuliffe’s now empty words because their community has a twenty-nine percent unemployment rate. Last year, McAuliffe said that Tunica would have nine-hundred employees at the would-be plant. Today, they have zero. He said that the plant would be producing one car an hour by now. The non-existent plant produces zero cars.

Doesn't mean it won't make cars and I don't see any wrongdoing here. McAuliffe also started a bank and has worked in the private sector, more than the career gv't employee cooch with his requisite 'job creation' promises can claim.
That said, I wish they put up a better gop opponent.

How refreshing, two horrible candidates that are pitting each side's dogmatic and emotional beliefs against each other. Yay, we get to vote for the lesser of two evils. I'm so looking forward to reading how each guy s-ucks less than the other.

It sounds like the Purcellville Dude is a campaign worker - and obviously not for McAuliffe.

You should start calling yourself The Real Dude or something.

Ala Mitt the looser.

"I will cut taxes. "

How?

"Oh, I have appointed a committee. They will report back to me, then I will share the results with you people. A few weeks after you elect me."

The same bait and switch used by other GOP candidates in the last few elections.

Does anyone remember the presidential candidate who said; "I know where Ben Laden is. If you elect me, I will go get him."

Didn't work then, and I hope Virginians are smart enough to not let it work now.

Gov Bobbie and Coo-che-coo got in office because the only 33% of eligible voters, voted that fateful day. Off year or not, lets not make the same mistake again.

more to come

This was a closed media event and the public was not invited to hear this. Va voters beware you are being duped by a controlled campaign.

Now your talkin. I have given up voting, an excerzise in futility. RT reports that the house passed a bill allowing corporations to rob its employees of overtime pay and giving them comp time instead. It just gets better and better.

Goldwater was one of the fathers of the Southern Strategy. Outside of that I agree with you. That's why I've used the phrase adopted by Reagan with a spin; I haven't left the Republican Party, it left me.

Not quite right. The bill would allow the employee to select O/T or comp time. THEIR choice, not the employers.

The federal government and state government have had this option for years.

The only problem is that most state agencies are understaffed and using comp time is a joke.

I take O/T as you can't spend or eat comp time and I already have 300+ hours of vacation in the bank.
