Dem VA Gov Candidate McAuliffe: My Dad Died Because of Bush

by Ben Shapiro 30 May 2013, 10:21 AM PDT 5 post a comment

George W. Bush has been blamed by the left for everything from hurricanes to the IRS targeting conservative non-profits. But now, it turns out that former Democratic National Committee head and current Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe blames Bush for his dad dying. Really. In an interview in May 2001, McAuliffe said that his father, Jack, died because “he could not go into a new year knowing that a Republican was actually moving into the White House.”

McAuliffe said, “He had eight great years. President Clinton and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton were so nice to my mother and father, they’d come down all the time. So he had a great eight years when President Clinton and Vice President Gore were in office, and he just wasn’t going into a new year with a Democrat not being in the White House Steve, he just couldn’t handle it.”

Dear Candidate Komrade McAuliffe:

Republicans are a Race (Like Muslims) and you, sir, are a racist.

Oh, bless his heart! I surely hope that he does not have the same malady befall him in 2014.

Truly, it would be a tragedy. A tragedy.

Yeah, we say intemperate things. We're not vetted because we're just bloggers. We're in our pajamas.

Meanwhile, McAuliffe's a multi-millionaire who goes from cushy job to cushy job. Now he's decided it might be entertaining to be governor of the Old Dominion.

It is so absurd it is actually kind of funny. McAuliffe > Franken, neither of which should be allowed within a million miles of the government.

Terry McAuliffe

Is this the same "McAuliffe" involved in Clinton’s scandal involving illegal recording of cell phones, or illegal recording period?

Didn’t Terry make something like $18 million under suspicious circumstances while Clinton was President?

Terry McAwful. Can someone remind me what the scandalous way he made $17million was? I seem to recall it was like Hillary’s $1,000 investment that became $100,000.

One should never have anything but good to say of the dead. His father died from a broken heart because a Republican moved into the White House in 2001?

Good.

McCauliffe’s dad obviously died out of sadness for giving the world such a miserable POS son.

The only thing sicker than an old man actually saying that, is his bastard(*) of a son repeating that.

(*): Legitimacy has nothing to do with the fact that only some sick bastard would repeat a story like that.

I'll look for the article tomorrow by Crystal Wright, describing how awful VA Governor Candidate McAuliffe is, how he is a 'divider' and therefore can't win.

According to his campaign website, Terry McAuliffe says his dad was a World War II captain. It's an assumption on my part, granted, but let's say for that to be true, he had to be at least 25 in 1945. (I may be off a year or two, but you'll get the gist).

Jack died in 2001, 56 years after WWII, meaning he would be somewhere around 81 at the time.

Yeah, I'm sure it was Bush alone that was responsible for your dad's death, Terry.

Now that’s the type of stupidity I love to see out of McAuliffe’s mouth. Especially since Ken Cuccinelli has been trying to shoot himself in the foot with the same weapon that Governor McDonnell used which is Star Scientific. Here’s a quote from last month’s Richmond Times Dispatch:

“Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli received thousands of dollars more in gifts from Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams over the past four years than he originally disclosed, according to amended statements of economic interests the gubernatorial candidate released at a press briefing Friday.”

His dad supposedly could not live under a multi-party system. A lot of Democrats appear to have this problem. Their idea of the ideal America is an America with only one party.
