McAuliffe to Supporters: Tell TV Stations Not to Air 'Fast Terry' Documentary
Click here for full story ^

Posted on 08/06/2013 6:24:48 AM PDT by Gopher Broke

On Monday, Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe's campaign launched an online campaign to pressure television stations across Virginia to not air "Fast Terry,"a documentary Citizens United has said was the "movie Terry McAuliffe does not want you to see."

As Breitbart News reported, progressives in Virginia, in addition to state Democrats who already rejected McAuliffe once as their party's standard bearer in 2009, are worried that the film will permanently define McAuliffe as a heartless plutocrat who stiffed working class Virginians of all races. The film, which details McAuliffe's questionable business dealings and how he promised to build an electric car manufacturing factory in Virginia only to move it later to Mississippi, also threatens to paint McAuliffe as the Democrat's version of Mitt Romney (a person who lacks empathy for working class Virginians), albeit a much more unsuccessful one in the private sector. In fact, Jason Meath, the film's director, made the "King of Bain" movie about Romney's business dealings.

Rush Limbaugh is right. McAuliffe is a thug.

So, he’s not employing Mississippians instead of not employing Virginians?

In 2008, I was one of a few conservatives working as a TV director for the DNC media pool. One of my colleagues and I went to a VIP room to grab some coffee. We were there, alone, with McAuliffe and his assistant. I was already engaged in a light argument about the failures of the Clinton administration with my lefty friend, as Terry semi-circled us and eyeballed me with curiosity - as I eyeballed back, thinking “wow - am I really having this conversation two feet away from Bill’s old boy?” Anyway, it was one of those cool dreams you might wake up from, but it really happened and was a rare delight to spout off in the sharks’ den...for free.

Vote for Johnnie Williams for Virginia governor. He knows how to grease the right palms and how much grease to use.

Liberals are concerned this film will permanently define McAuliffe as a heartless plutocrat who stiffed working class Virginians of all races.

Well, the inconvenient truth is.... McAuliffe as a heartless plutocrat who stiffed working class Virginians of all races.

Cuccinelli has done an effective job leveraging social media through this campaign... it’s a real force-multiplier for any campaign. The key is going to be to make this election about McAuliffe... and Cooch is starting to make that happen.

The movie can be seen for free online, and is under a half hour long.

Right now, blank CD’s (not DVD’s) are very cheap, likely cheaper than a Netflix-style disk envelope and bulk postage.

So why not burn a huge number of this documentary to CDs, which is compatible with DVD players, and mail them to people all over the state?

Rush Limbaugh is right. McAuliffe is a thug ....

In Southern vernacular, he's a slimeball carpetbagger ...

Hmmmm...I’m hearing from local party chairmen that Cuccinelli is dropping the ball in Southwest Virginia, letting McCauliffe get away with bloody murder on the streets without any sort of defense or counter attack.

Most folks own computers with DVD players, why not just forward the link?

While that will work, it wouldn’t have the impact. People see YouTube and Liveleak videos every day, and they lose their “special” or memorable quality. Plus they are usually short. A half hour long video on the Internet I am guessing would only get a fraction of the complete views that a disk would.

Nobody has ever, to my knowledge, looked into his $18 million profit on Global Crossings stock, just before it collapsed in accounting fraud.

The truth is even much of the left grassroots don’t care for him.

The media is too busy “Palinizing” the current governor over some unwise but still legal gifts he received (his wife looks like the offending party actually, but B.McD. manned up, apoligized and paid it all back) and trying to tar Cuccinelli with the same brush. McDonnell has been systematically and deliberately ruined for future political office. There’s plenty of fraud/political filth to write about/find/see with McAuliffe ... but he’s a Clinton crony and Dem so he’s been getting a major pass on everything. If he ends up governor (and I can see it happening) along with two ‘Rat Senators (Warner/Kaine) .... well, I guess Virginia will deserve what it gets and it won’t be pretty.
