Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling took a jab at likely 2013 gubernatorial primary opponent and state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli Tuesday, calling Cucchinelli an ideological firebrand while speaking to a Northern Virginia business group.
Bolling, who will likely face Cucchinelli in a primary battle, presented himself as a moderate candidate who can solve problems and get things done while avoiding hyper-partisanship. Thats the kind of mainstream, conservative leadership I offer, and thats the kind of mature and responsible approach Ive always taken to governing, and if thats what people want in the next governor of Virginia, theyll be attracted to my candidacy, he said. And if they want an ideological firebrand, when every day is a fight about this or that or the next thing, then theyll have a choice, and theyll just have to decide, what kind of governor they want, Bolling said. He continued, If, in 2013, people are looking for a governor who is committed to providing mainstream conservative leadership that focuses on solving problems, getting things done and building a better Virginia, then they will be attracted to my campaign. ... If, on the other hand, they want a different kind of governor, theyll be attracted to someone elses candidacy. At the end of the day, Bolling said, Governing has to be about more than breaking the dishes. Governing has to do with getting things done.
Bolling was speaking to the Mount Vernon-Lee Chamber of Commerce in Fairfax County.
Cuccinelli was also in Northern Virginia Tuesday, as part of a forum on fraud prevention and consumer protection for the elderly in Springfield. He did not address the election.

“If people want a candidate who is as exciting as watching paint dry, they will be attracted to my campaign” -—Bill Bolling
This is why Bolling will get slaughtered...his strategy is to attract moderates, establishment Republicans and Democrats to vote for him in the Primary.
It is pretty disappointing that the state chairman of our presumptive presidential nominee’s campaign is too busy attacking another 2013 candidate to focus on 2012.
With the dire straits the country is in, I'm thinking this is exactly what we need ..... some "give me Liberty or give me death" vs the moderate 'let's all go along to get along'.
Yep, just the kind of wishy-washy, wuss, girly-guy, RINO that the Inside-the-Beltway, pseudo-intellectual, Republi-Tard, Establishment Elites luv and endorse.
Look for the RNC and Rove-types to lend their wholehearted support
