Now that Glenn Youngkin is running for governor of Virginia as a Trump Republican, not surprisingly he’s toeing the hard-right party line. But four years ago, leading a panel that included then-Gov. Terry McAuliffe (see Business Insider for the scoop and hear for DPVA’s press release on this story), Youngkin’s tone was 180-degrees different, as he heaped praise on Virginia’s economy under Gov. McAuliffe’s leadership. Check out the video, below, and keep that in mind as you listen to the garbage Youngkin spews out as he tries to gain power for himself…
First, Youngkin calls the panel with McAuliffe “an incredibly talented group of folks,” and that if he spent a lot of time on everyone’s biography, “we might take up the whole hour.”
In the following video, Youngkin says about Virginia under Gov. McAuliffe’s leadership, “So here we have one out of 50 states that’s doing very well and has really shown great strides.”
Here, Youngkin says the U.S. economy is doing ok, “and particularly in the Commonwealth of Virginia…if you want to put a new plant down, that’s the place to put it.”
Here, Youngkin asks Gov. McAuliffe about “the role you played in developing Virginia’s economy” and asked “how do you do it?”
And finally, in the following video, Youngkin enthusiastically joins in with McAuliffe in touting how well Virginia’s doing, chiming in with “great education!” And yet now, Youngkin has not a positive word to say, and lots of negative words about Virginia’s public education system? Weird…until you consider that Youngkin will say *anything* to help him get elected governor. Yuck.
