Skip to comments.In final Virginia governor debate, Ken Cuccinelli hits Terry McAuliffe hard
Posted on 10/26/2013 6:07:43 PM PDT by HokieMom
Down in the polls, Republican Kenneth T. Cuccinelli on Thursday launched his sharpest attacks of Virginias gubernatorial campaign, accusing Terry McAuliffe of being a liar and of lacking substance while the Democrat said the attorney generals economic plan would wreck the states economy.
The candidates third and final debate covered little new ground but was marked by increasingly sharp exchanges, with Mr. Cuccinelli saying that being in favor of jobs and education is all well and good, but that talking is different from laying out a plan.
Theyre not plans. I like those, too. I like education I like puppies. But I dont bring a puppy home if I dont have a plan for how Im going to deal with that puppy, he said to laughter from the crowd at the Squires Student Center at Virginia Tech. Hes all puppy and no plan.
Breaking from normal debate protocol, Mr. Cuccinelli at one point tried to put Mr. McAuliffe on the spot, yielding 30 seconds of his time and daring his opponent to name just one government efficiency he would use to pay for his priorities.

Sounds like he did pretty well tonight. Why is he so behind in the polls?
because Virginia is fallen behind enemy lines :/
Off year election—turnout is a big factor. It will be another travesty if Dems win by their ash hole voters.
Talking later about jobs, Mr. McAuliffe proposed two specific spending items doubling the states research-and-development tax credit and expanding a tax credit for angel investors.
Jobs? You mean like those jobs in your make believe car factory Terry?
The Dem has Bloomberg anti-gun $$ and Hollywood $$ and Soros $$ to run ads against him around the clock. The one poll with the wide spread may have been backlash from the Obama govt shutdown. A more recent poll has it within the margin of error.
He may be having a last minute surge from a poll someone posted yesterday.
If you’re in Virginia, VOTE for Ken Cuccinelli. He is a solid conservative, and McAuliffe is a crook. A defeat for the DemonRats now would be devastating for their 2016 and 2014 prospects. Now is the time to turn the tide!
“If youre in Virginia, VOTE for Ken Cuccinelli”
I been posting on as many articles about the race as I see from news station for Sarvis to do the right thing and drop out if he loves Virginia. A vote for Sarvis is a vote for McAuliffe............Darn this worries me..PRAYING
Virginia Freepers- TURNOUT IS KEY IN OFF-YEAR ELECTIONS!!!
Lets not sit hear and gripe to each other and preach to the choir
GET YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY OUT TO VOTE
our votes are worth 10 times more in off-year elections
Bad week to move to VA. Bad week to give-up snorting glue. Bad week to ...
I can’t freaking believe they’ve infiltrated and compromised VA as bad as they have. Here in PA, we’re tettering-&-tottering, too, depending what happens after Corbett leaves.
Ready to pack-up and leave for Montana etc?
Rhode Island insurance scam,Terry McAuliffe faces scrutiny for electric car company.
If they elect him it means either they don’t care or he wasn’t elected with their votes.
BTTT! I’m still seeing lots of lit-dropping, signs, and bumperstickers. People are turning up the heat.
“I like puppies. But I dont bring a puppy home if I dont have a plan for how Im going to deal with that puppy,”
Oooh, that’s gonna leave a mark!
More conservatives should use a variation of that line. Lefties so often rely on warm-n-fuzzies like being for safe this and fair that, but they rarely tell us how they’re going to bring about these utopian ideals. They need to be challenged on it.
That line drew a big laugh from the audience at Virginia Tech.
They say people vote with their pocketbook. They need to start voting with their soul. C'mon Virginia, do some deep thinking, and show us some soul. How would The Founders from Virginia vote?
Yes, they have...but McAuliffe is just so sleazy.
God... so sad that a commie, sleazeball, Clintonite even has a chance in Virginia. Must be all the gubmint employees that live there.
Ken Cuccinelli is a real and not phony conservative. Wonder if he is getting any help from the RNC since he’s not a RINO.
Guess the residents want more Obamacare, taxes, socialism and gun control if they vote for McAuliffe.... :-(
I’m excited to announce that I will be holding a get out the vote rally with Governor Bobby Jindal in Bristow on Tuesday, October 29th.
We’re just 10 days away from Election Day, and it’s support on the grassroots level at events like this that will mean the difference between victory and defeat.
I am grateful to have the support of Governor Jindal, and hope that you will be able to join us for this special event.
Here are the details:
Get Out the Vote Rally with Governor Bobby Jindal
Tuesday, October 29th
Bristow Victory Office
10490 Bristow Center Drive
Bristow, VA 20136
This event is free and open to the public.
I’m not in Virginia, but would vote for him over McAuliffe any day of the week if I could.
Pubs need to turn out the vote. It WOULD be an awesome boost right now should Cuccinelli win.
He served 3 (I think) terms as a state senator before being elected 4 years ago as our Attorney General. In my view, personality-wise he’s more AG-ish and less Governor-ish in this media age but if elected, he will be an outstanding Governor.
If the clintinoid mcawful wins, Virginians deserve the slease their state becomes.
I am a born and raised Virginian. One of my prized possessions is a photo of my father shaking hands with President Nixon and Gov. Linwood Holton. Virginia at large is now being controlled by the D.C. suburbs, Richmond, and Norfolk area. Lots of members of the FSA and the libs that live in Arlington-FFX-Alexandria. The rest of the state is mainly red, but there are so many in the urban areas they wag the dog. I live in Lowdown (Loudoun) County that is turning purple and is about one more sub-division away from turning blue. There are at least four generations of my family buried here. But I’m about one more tax increase or a Gov. Macrat administration from leaving. And it breaks my heart.
I sent him a few bucks. My state is lost, maybe we can save Virginia.
If we do that it will be to Wyoming. Even if McAwful wins the state legislature is still republican, and I just applied for my CCW shall issue permit, non Sodomite marriage,lower taxes, I don’t have to get a license for my AR/SCAR...I still think it’s better off than Merryland.
BTW, I scared off a huge Blue Heron walking around in the backyard looking for a Koi snack. How it landed back there with all the vegetation is crazy.
So he’s not the best candidate for the lofo’s. (I am so sick of lofo’s influence on elections.)
Hope the base is fired up then. We need more conservative governors to help turn the tide in this country.
Get used to Blue Heron and White Egret; they’re coming for your fish. $5,000 fine and prison if you get caught. SSS or shoot overhead to scare ‘em away. Rubber snakes work for a few weeks.
I’m headed to Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Dakotas or British Vancouver. Want to buy my safe and firearms, Class IIIs too? Heh.
God please save us from fools like McCauliffe and the democrats that are ignorant enough to vote for them.
HUH? Cuccinelli’s not the best candidate? Of course he is! I certainly didn’t mean to convey that idea. the GOP Cuccinelli is just not as glitzy-media personality-type; he’s sort of like a law professor. The Dem is that certain type of flashy liberal likes. Dems are all about style; we’re about substance. The Dem in this race appeals to that. Cuccinelli is an outstanding candidate. :^)
P.S. Sorry, I don’t know what a “lofo” is. :^)
Thank you! That’s very much appreciated.
Amen, please, Lord. Make it so.
Breaks my heart, too. And in the last few election cycles, the rural heartland of our beautiful Virginia just doesn’t show up in the numbers necessary to counteract the liberal moving here from New England taking up residence in the DC suburbs.
Can’t you get the cemetery vote?? I have never figured out how to do that. Get an Obummer-care “Navigator” They know how to register dead people.
“lofo” is the scourge of America, the Low Information Voter. I think coined by Rush.
This is very good news!
Gov. Jindal will draw lots of support for Ken and attract a massive crowd to the rally in Bristow. More importantly, it creates huge momentum for Ken going into Election Day.
Ah, ok, thanks! I have heard the term, ‘low information voter.’ And they are the scourge that’s ruining this country.
And Rand Paul is making several appearances, too. That should help w/the youth and libertarian vote.
According to Mark Levin, McAuliffe has a 60-40 advantage among women. That’s the deciding factor.
My daughter goes to school in Fredericksburg, Va but is registered in Richmond. I’m picking her up on election day, driving her to Richmond so she can vote Cuccinnelli and then taking her back. I’m proud of her and that’s what’s necessary to win. Get your vote counted.
They should. But more than that. Republicans need a plan. Too many of them don’t. They are as bad about offering non-specific hope and change as Obama.
Neither party is talking about jobs. Neither party has a plan.
I have a ‘Women for Ken Cuccinelli’ bumpersticker on my car. I hope it helps.
Good for you! Every vote DOES count.
Beyond that, why a guy who can embezzle a quick million or two whenever he wants to would want a full time job like being governor is a question even the auricle can't answer.
I remember talking with a lady who recently arrived from the Ukraine right after Clinton got reelected and she yelled, "My God, why would you Americans vote for a socialist?" It took her several years to get here and become a citizen.
So I ask these women, "Why would you vote for a socialist?" Do you have children and grandchildren? Have you done any research at all on the misogynistic democratic party and the members therein? Do you know what socialism eventually does to a country, or more aptly stated, your children and grandchildren? Or is it all about abortion and the brainwashing "war on women" crap from the MSM. Think big picture ladies.
He is a sleazeball on the personal level, too. His children attended a school in my neighborhood and a teacher there told me how he always drove through the carpool line like it was a NASCAR track endangering the children and teachers. Always had a leadfoot on the accelerator.
With no help from the NJGOP or the Senate GOP, we almost elected a true conservative in Jersey over a Democrat rock star. IN NEW JERSEY. Lonegan got 44% on tea party ground game. You can do this Virginia. You do not want McCauliffe giving Virginia to Hillary. The Republic would be lost.
