Why My (Next) Car Won’t Be Built in Virginia

    Governor McDonnell. Simple as that. He is a failure in every economic aspect; riding behind Obama’s improving economy. This deal was lobbed soft across the plate; delivered on a silver platter. And he turned his back. Not Governor Barbour. He didn’t let political differences cloud his better business judgment.

    Terry McAuliffe had every reason to bring the MyCar by GreenTech factory to Virginia. Governor Bob had one reason to run it off. Republicans are scared to death of success…when it has a hint of a Democratic tint. Of course with T-Mac, it’s never just a hint. Okay, Governor ABC, let’s get back to basics. McAuliffe is actively pitching another deal or two. Want to swing at this cupcake or take your bat and slink away again.

    On July 4th or thereabouts, I will join a throng in Tunica, Mississippi to watch the reverse of Republican economic initiatives. Jobs are being imported to America from China. They could have been Virginia jobs, but Bob’s not for some jobs; not when they have a Democratic taint. McAuliffe has four more models on the drawing board. This little red job is one. Will it be produced in Virginia?

      The big 4000+ job auto plant that Terry has been talking about for months will go to Mississippi?

      The article you link to seems to indicate that the decision has not been made yet and Virginia is still in the running.

      I saw Terry interviewed recently and it sounded to me like it was a done deal that the first car plant will be built in Mississippi. The incentives were too good to pass up. Also, it’s not Terry’s decision exclusively. He has other investors.
