Where's the Jobs Plan?
Bob McDonnell calls himself a "jobs governor."
So Common Sense Virginia, a political action committee funded by the Democratic Governors Association, wants to know why the Republican gubernatorial nominee has yet to unveil a plan to create jobs.
The group launched the "No Jobs Bob" clock on its Website to track the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds since McDonnell declared himself the "Jobs Governor" without offering a jobs plan.
"Bob McDonnell is ready to deny help to Virginians struggling in challenging times, but McDonnell is not ready to create jobs in our commonwealth," said John Tyler, who recently lost his job and serves on the Common Sense Virginia advisory board. "No Jobs Bob likes to talk the talk, but for more than a year on the campaign trail, McDonnell hasn't walked the walk."
Tucker Martin, McDonnell's spokesman, said McDonnell's energy and higher education policy plans, which have already been unveiled, are based around creating jobs.
Here are the plans. Judge for yourself.
"If this outside group wants to be involved in this race, they should also take a little time to follow it,'' he said. "You can't just shoot out press releases that ignore the facts and expect folks to take you seriously. Yet another huge embarrassment for these national partisans."
