McAuliffe's Background Could Prove A LiabilityVirginians know this "huckster" all too well. He's the kind of slimy politician that nearby Washington D.C. reeks of. The kind of politician who wants to bring into our fair commonwealth that which represents the worst that national politics has to offer - backroom deal-making, sleaze, unearned wealth, a too-slippery-by-half autobiography, low friends in high places, thriving off of the misery of others, an unquenchable thirst for power.

Terry McAuliffe has a simple message for Virginia: Elect him governor this year and he will bring jobs, because he has more business experience than anyone else in the race.
Yet McAuliffe's business pedigree is not so simple. He is a dealmaker who made millions from investments. And many of his biggest deals came in partnership with prominent donors and politicians, creating a portrait over the years of a Washington insider who got rich as he rose to power within the Democratic Party.
McAuliffe is, at his core, a salesman -- and even called himself a "huckster" in his autobiography. [link]
This slimeball thinks we need him as our governor. Right. Like we cry out for a hemorrhoid.
