Chalk One More Up in the Democrat Sleezeball Column

No experience in office? Check. Sketchy business partners? Check. Media manipulation? Check.
Well Hell, Let's Make Him Governor....

Sleezeball- Elect McAuliffe

Terry McAuliffe represents an unseemly side of Washington. His primary role in politics for the past two decades or more has been to spew the party line in the media, and raising lots of cash. Most notably, for the Clintons. He cooked up the idea of essentially renting out the Lincoln bedroom during the Clinton administration as a fundraising vehicle, and he smashed all previous presidential fundraising records in the process.

When McAuliffe was the Dems' top fundraiser, a campaign finance scandal besieged the Clinton White House. Coincidence? No. McAuliffe was all about pushing the envelope when it came to the political money chase. That alone is not be enough to render him a distasteful political candidate in his party. Quiet the contrary.

What's different about McAuliffe is his brazen mixing of his campaign fundraising activity and attempts to enrich himself personally. Many of McAuliffe's business deals have come about due to his place in the political cosmos, not because he possesses a wealth of business skill. That tangled history has linked him to a long list of slimy unsavory characters. 


  1. I see this as the Requiem to the American electorate. Half of those that vote in elections care not one iota about the person they vote into office. Crook, communist, socialist, traitor, pedophile, hell we don't care because maybe, just maybe they'll give us Free Stuff.

  2. McAuliffe just squeeked in, so he has no mandate (not that he won't be damaging).

    Had Cuccinnelli moderated some of his social conservatism, he'd have blown McA out of the water, but his abortion issue stance alienated women voters. When will Conservatives realize that trampling someone's social/moral rights is just as bad as trampling someone's financial/property rights? Government needs limits, all around.

    Look at the vote percentage Libertarian (Sarvis) got ... more than enough to have put McAulife under if Cuccinelli had reached out to them and been less bible-belty. Those votes got siphoned away from Cuccinelli not because of the Dems but because Cuccinelli's stance alienates a lot of us libertarians.

    I'm tired of Republicans telling me I have to support them and some of their more awful policies in order to avoid the Dems and their very awful policies. Know what? I don't have to. And I won't. I'm tired of that game, because it gets me nothing. Meddling government is meddling government, whether it is through gun control, socialized healthcare insurance and over-taxation, or through sticking their nose into people's bedrooms and private lives. Two thuggish organizations trying to tell me how thuggish the other one is. Huh. Neither represent me ... and my best bet is to prep and stockpile for the coming trainwreck. Because neither major party has shown any significant ability to manage the country's affairs competently.
