LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Say no to McAuliffe as governor
Does Virginia need another do-nothing, know-nothing carpetbagger putting his nose into the business of the residents of the commonwealth (“First Va. gubernatorial debate gets sharp and personal between Cuccinelli, McAuliffe,” Web, July 20)? Terry McAuliffe’s presence in the Virginia gubernatorial race shows the desperation of the Obama administration.
The only reason I can see for his presence is his proven history of failed businesses, association with some of the worst political names in the country and a talent for exaggerating the trivial. Mr. McAuliffe’s resume mimics that of the current resident of the White House, except for the fact that we know far more about Mr. McAuliffe than we will ever know of President Obama until 2016.
My ancestors came to Virginia in the 1740s. They helped forge a new country, suffered through war and survived to thrive through love and devotion to Virginia. I do not want our history sullied by a candidate of so little substance as Mr. McAuliffe.
If Mr. McAuliffe does not feel confident enough to put his resume up for examination in his own state, why should any real Virginian give a thought to allowing him to be governor?
