FREDERICKSBURG Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe says hes proud of his entrepreneurial background, but acknowledged this week that some businesses work, some dont.
McAuliffes statement came in the wake of more questions about his GreenTech Automotive venture in Mississippi. Asked by a Washington Examiner reporter about the project, which has failed to live up to its billing as a job generator, McAuliffe said this on camera:
Ive been involved with business my whole life. You learn from experience.
Launching GreenTech three years ago, McAuliffe sounded more bullish back then, declaring: Were in to make money, no question about it. In all the businesses Im happy to say Ive started 25 theyve all made money.
GOP gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli’s press secretary, Anna Nix, said Virginians deserve more specifics from McAuliffe about his controversial electric-car company that was the subject of Watchdog.org investigative reports on Monday and Wednesday.
If Mr. McAuliffe is so proud of his business acumen, why all of a sudden is he dodging questions about his very latest business endeavor? Nix asked.
Neither McAuliffe nor his visa-investment business partner, Anthony Rodham, Hillary Clintons youngest brother, have responded to Watchdogs repeated requests for interviews.

This fella is a LIB dork. He couldn’t run a successful business...that’s why he’s drawn to politics. What a mental midget.
Ole Terry was in charge when the Republican landslide in 96 took place.
Still remember the photoshop pictures of him with a black eye and missing teeth... :)
“Some work, some don’t” huh Terry? Wow, that’s deep. Lol!!
It’s a golf cart with a windshield. There are many companies in the country that build those already.
How many Hudreds of Millions did McAuliffe scam from taxpayers on this swindle?
Hillary’s Treasury Secretary
Unless you are a central banker, in which case, all business ventures succeed. Whether they do or they don’t.
Exactly, with a base sticker price of $15,500 and a top speed of 25mph.
And if they work, Terry’s party calls their owners greedy rich who would rather see children and the elderly die rather than pay their “fair share” of taxes. If they don’t work, Terry’s party says that their owners are deliberately putting people out of work to lower costs or avoid regulations.
He made several million in a sweetheart stock deal after he left Clinton administration. He was asked about that sweetheart deal and his response was; His even deeper response....Hey I bought stock and I sold stock.
Looks like McAuliffe started his green car company to get govt. contracts and tax breaks.
This NY native chose to put his car manufacturing plant in Miss. then run for Governor of VA......
Terry, stay in NY...we want a VIRGINIAN like Ken Cuccinelli to be our next governor!!
