McAuliffe Wades Into It

Amy Gardner

Democratic gubernatorial contender Terry McAuliffe harvested algae today. Need we say more?



For those still reading: This was Mcauliffe's fourth campaign "work day" in which he spends the day toiling in ways that Virginians do: as a waiter at a sports bar in Portsmouth, as a barber in an African-American barber shop, as a firefighter in Fairfax County.

Today, McAuliffe harvested algae at the Algal Farms Inc. algae farm in Hopewell. He also got to ride a go-cart fueled by biodiesel produced from algae.

"He had a great time," spokeswoman Delacey Skinner said. Doesn't he always? His day ended well too, with an endorsement from the Virginia League of Conservation Voters.

When it comes to consistency and thoroughness, McAuliffe takes the cake! He really walks the talk and has no hesitation rolling up his sleeves and jumping to any task! What else can we expect from a die hard Democrat who wrestled an alligator to raise funds for a campaign?

McAuliffe knows a lot, in some areas probably more than his opponents put together. But more importantly, McAuliffe is the only one who has demonstrated his ability and willingness to learn every trade that impacts the Commonwealth of Virginia. This intense passion for thoroughness and knowledge is what will make him the best candidate to be the next Governor of Virginia.

No wonder I wonder support him, and volunteer for his campaign.

Oops! Sorry. Please read the last line as:

"No wonder I support him, and volunteer for his campaign."

To all who seek the VA Governors office regardless of party affiliation: It's jobs and the economy, stupid!

I'm baffled that anyone would seriously consider giving their vote to this self admitted "huckster" who "will use his personal contacts".

I've voted for every Democratic statewide candidate who has been on my ballot for the last 20 years but I will not add McAuliffe to that list if we make the mistake of nominating him.

Hows does McAuliffe expect to win without the support of Democratic voters like me? Does he really believe that there are more GOP voters disaffected with Bob McDonnell?

Fortunately, I've got two strong candidates to choose from in Creigh Deeds and Brian Moran who would make fine Democratic governors.

alankrishnan, it's interesting to see you praise McAuliffe as a die-hard Democrat when you've stated elsewhere that your second choice for governor is Republican Bob "Regency U." McDonnell.

For all your pompously pedantic perorations, you seem to be a very confused individual with puzzling values. True die-hard Democrats should ignore your tedious shilling for McAuliffe, who also has warm and fuzzy feelings for Republicans like his business partner and contributor Carl Lindner, who helped raise $2 million for Bush's reelection campaign and donated $350,000 to the Swift Boat Veterans for "Truth".
