Ken Cuccinelli Wins Virginia Debate

Posted on | September 25, 2013 | 75 Comments

Speaking ex-officio in my role as The Decider, I declare Republican Ken Cuccinelli the winner of tonight’s gubernatorial debate in Fairfax. The main reason, of course, is that Cuccinelli is totally awesome, but there’s also the important fact that Terry McAuliffe sucks:

McAuliffe has proposed all kinds of new spending, but can’t say how he would pay for it. Here is Cuccinelli’s closing argument from the debate:

The Northern Virginia Technology Council’s TechPAC and Virginia’s small, independent businesses endorsed me this past week because they know I’m best prepared to fight to bring jobs to Virginia.
My opponent is the only one in this race that has driven jobs from this state and has no plan to bring them back. He’s sold more visas to Chinese citizens than his failed company has sold cars.
I’ll be a governor who fights for you. Terry will fight for Terry, because he always has.
If you’ll give me your support on November 5th, I’ll fight for education and economic policies that grow jobs for the middle-class by leaving families and businesses with more of their own money, so they can invest those hard-earned dollars to grow jobs right here, in Virginia. My jobs plan will create 58,000 good paying jobs for Virginians.
I have faith in the people of Virginia and that if we remain true to our deepest ideals and most noble traditions — limited government, strong families, economic opportunity; we can be even greater in the future than we’ve been in the past. Thank you.

UPDATE: Statement from RGA Chairman Bobby Jindal:

“Ken Cuccinelli demonstrated tonight, just as he has demonstrated consistently throughout the campaign, that he is a serious, knowledgeable candidate who is willing and prepared to lead Virginia to a brighter future. His commitment to the Commonwealth and his vision for the years ahead is abundantly clear: make Virginia a great place to live, work and learn. Meanwhile, his opponent Terry McAuliffe continues to embarrass himself and make reckless statements while proving that he has no understanding of today’s most pressing issues. Terry McAuliffe demonstrated again tonight that he is an entirely unserious candidate who is unprepared to serve as Governor. Virginians deserve better. The Republican Governors Association congratulates Ken Cuccinelli on his commanding win this evening.”

Because He’s Awesome (And Terry McAuliffe Sucks)

    Am I the only one that, when Bobby* Jindal speaks, it’s like watching someone coked-out?

    *Who at his age let’s himself be called ‘Bobby’ in an official capacity??? Maybe Scooter Libby.

    McAuliffe ain’t half black, has a real birth certificate and no vagina. In short, he has none of Obama’s Dem advantages.

    My only problem with Jindal is, being the best man in Louisiana still means you’re from Louisiana.

    I wacthed part of it. There were at least 2 times, probably more, where Terry claimed that Cuch had plans to ‘outlaw virtually all forms of contraceptives’. I thought Cuch should have responded to that by pointing out to the voters that a person who makes wild accusations like that is unfit for office and possibly insane.

    Cooch has too much baggage, and the fact that women HATE him, doesn’t help.

    Virginia has the Colorado problem: classic red state, but has had idiot invasions from gormless leftists fleeing the messes in their home blue states that they themselves created. As a result, they’ve contaminated northern Virginia, Richmond, and Virginia Beach with their self-indulgent stupidity.

    I’m all for immigration control. let’s start with immigration of blue-staters to red states.

    The glue-sniffer demographic has spoken! Vote for Terrible Terry, because he’s shipped all our jobs overseas, so we won’t have to get jobs! We can just sit around all day getting high and playing GTA!

    They’re ruining Florida, and Perry is going to be sorry for inviting them to Texas.

    Sorry, guys, the anonymous stranger who can’t even figure out how to fake up a profile has spoken. We can’t support Cuccinelli now.

    Exactly. Frankly, I think Perry’s making a mistake for some temporary economic boost that’s going to turn around and bite Texas in the @$$ in the long run.

    No. Women do not hate him. And when the folks find out that your rhino politician voted with Bloomberg on his mayors against guns. As did Mc Daffy, it will be curtains for McDaffy.
