Terry McAuliffe to campaign with Joe Biden in toss-up Virginia election

| October 22, 2021

Terry McAuliffe will campaign with Joe Biden in Arlington a week before the election. Barack Obama will join him at Richmond on Saturday. Stacey Abrams will campaign with him at Charlottesville on Sunday. The race is tight according to the polls.

From Fox News:

The most recent polls have put McAuliffe and Youngkin in a dead heat, with Monmouth University finding both candidates at 46%. The Democrat still leads in the RealClearPolitics polling average, 48.8% to McAuliffe’s 47%.

Amid tense school board meetings in Fairfax and Loudoun counties that have drawn national media coverage, McAuliffe declared in a debate, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” Fox News polling has shown that most Virginia likely voters — and 57 percent of Virginia parents — disagreed with that statement, and Youngkin has pressed McAuliffe on it. While McAuliffe claimed that Youngkin took the statement out of context, the Youngkin campaign launched an ad showing McAuliffe standing by the statement seven times.

Both Youngkin and McAuliffe have pledged to pay Virginia teachers more, investing in education. Youngkin has faulted McAuliffe for lowering standards in the state’s schools, however. While McAuliffe served as governor between 2014 and 2018, he signed a bill ordering a deemphasis on standardized test results in accrediting Virginia public schools. While 88 schools were denied accreditation under the old standards in 2017, no school has been denied accreditation since the new standards went into effect in 2018.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. But Joe? That should pretty much guarantee Youngkin’s election.

That gap-toothed witch is involved? They will keep ‘counting the votes’ until they get the predetermined result.

But what do I/we know?

MarineDad61

Roh-Dog,
Apparently NOT.
No involvement in this.
Unless I missed the article where
Hillary Clinton appears, endorses, or otherwise rants.

Poor choice of photo for this article.
It’s like any sleazy Dem (anywhere)
digging up a GOP election candidate (anywhere),
and slapping up a photo op with Trump.

I was referring to Mrs (dubious claim). Abrams.

She’s very connected to orgs that do the ‘harvesting ops’.

A case of beer says a judge authorizes counting beyond the window, because ‘reasons’. If we’ve learned anything from PA this is the newest corrective action for initial failure.

Fyrfighter

Yep, keep counting till ya get the numbers ya need…
totally legit…

MarineDad61

Well, the Dem attitude that I see around here (in PA) is that putting the fresh stink of Trump on local GOP candidates will help them lose, and help their Dem candidates win. They find photos or stories of the local GOP candidate with Trump, just like you stuck the stink of Hillary on McA, not that McA needs anymore stuck stink. He’s surrounded with stink now. We’ll know next month, and again in 2022… Read more »

Let ’em try.
It might work in Virginia.
Or not.
But either way, it doesn’t speak of the nation.

It will certainly fail for Dems in other places.
Most noticeably, November 2022 in Pennsylvania,
when
U.S. Senate ✓
U.S. House ✓
Governor ✓
State Senate ✓
State House ✓
are ALL on the ballot.

They think they will cheat their way to another win with drop-box ballots and mail in ballots. Watch what the results look like at 4:00 am when most people with jobs are asleep.

MarineDad61

And, in PA in 2021, it’s about state judges, and local and county DJs, school boards, and councils. It’s really not about the 2020 election. It’s about party, but not about Biden nor Trump. Some of it is about Gov. Wolf. But the stinks get stuck (or bounce off), even when the candidate defers from the implications or connections to Biden or Trump. Your personal attitude about Republicans today is NOT the prevailing attitude of… Read more »

Once upon a time, not so long ago, Virginia had enough normal people to outweigh the dummies in NoVA that now basically control the rest of the state.

MarineDad61

QMC,
Between Richmond and D.C. burbs (growth),
Virginia is much like Pennsylvania with Philly and Pittsburgh.
Or New York citystate.

Leave. ASAP. The morning after the 2019 election, I was on the phone with realtors in Tennessee, and was gone from VA within four months.

ChipNASA

I hope this is the beginning of the end of the Democratic party.
*IF* this goes the way it *should* (no cheating!) and Youngkin is elected, I will revel in the talk of machinations and teeth gnashing and wailing etc that will happen, then the finger pointing and then the circular firing squad. Of the Demoncrats.
And with that, I leave you with this…(NSF Ears and VOLUME CHECK!!!)

ChipNASA

And I can’t help myself when it comes to showing everyone Macaque …sorry, it’s a howler monkey, but I repeat myself.

MarineDad61

ChipNASA,
In Pennsylvania, the showdown at the Not OK Corral
comes next year, November 2022,
when
U.S. Senate ✓
U.S. House ✓
Governor ✓
State Senate ✓
State House ✓
are ALL on the ballot.

I believe that the clip is fake GOP news, and it’s really a clip of trumpies dying and carrying on, when trump lost the election. Yep, and they are STILL being cry babies…bitter, bitter, bitter!

“with Joe Biden in Arlington a week before the election. Barack Obama will join him at Richmond on Saturday. Stacey Abrams will campaign with him at Charlottesville on Sunday”

When is Satan scheduled?

KoB

See the picture at the header, Satan has already been there.

Four of the main domestic enemies of our Republic in close proximity to one another. Where’s a pissed off JAL Pilot when we need one?

Imma going with Roh-Dog’s take on this. “It matters not who votes…what matters is who counts the votes”!

Terry will win, and this will show the world that trump is really a nobody now, esp. since he could not even beat Mr. Biden.

Why don’t you go somewhere else to post. We’re full up on crazy here. We already have enough semi-literate progs posting comments. Besides you don’t appear to get paid by the word with Soros-bucks like they do.

Roger Borroel

So everybody here is blogging all those f–ks, and calling names like a flood…but you want ME to leave? Boy, are you mixed up in the head…no, don’t tell me, you don’t need to tell me that your a far right crazy trumpie…I got THAT…EASILY!

rgr769

We already have enough Orange Bad Loon. One is a self avowed Communist/Marxist/Antifastani.

rgr769

Ever serve in the military? If so, what branch and MOS?

Roger Borroel

Sure, RA1690……., 1967-70. Have you ever served this country?

rgr769

Well, everyone posting comments here over the past ten years knows the answer to that. But I will just say that my MOS’s as an RA officer have one more digit than yours. Moreover, there is a badge that used to be depicted on the header of the predecessor to this site that I know you don’t have. But you should be proud that you have something else in common with our mendacious mollusk, the… Read more »

The name comes back to a case involving the Army Board of Correcting Shit about his supposed assignment to B/2/506th during Viet of the Nam.

Seems legit (semi /s)

Roger Borroel

Dog: Have you ever served this country?

Roh-Dog

Define ‘serve’? I worked the fry-o-later at McDogfood’s once, but never the window.

See, I was born hideously ugly. Face that’d turn people off their Big Macs.

I tried to convince the manager to lemme do it with a bag o’er my head but I was fired that shift.

The shame… I guess I’ll never know the glory, to SERVE my country!

Roger Borroel

I knew that was going to be your answer, seeing what type of site this is. I betcha, you worked at The Salvation Army too, handling all those dirty and smelly clothes – those stores SMELL!

nobunny

Wow… ZING. How you gonna recover Roh?

Roger Borroel

He’ll recover, since he has training crapping in the field, off the road.

Roh-Dog

NEVER, nobunny.

He’s such a better man. We all know it.

Remember me how I was, nb?
Buttugly in my paper c-cap and apron?!

nobunny

I thought you were totes adorbs Roh. I have a real weakness for men in uniform.

Roger Borroel

Who that?

USMC Steve

Dude, seriously, go fuck yourself in the corner. You are welcome to be a stupid ass liberal drone, just don’t bother us with your mental retardation.
