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.... :-(
