It happened again.
Terry McAuliffe, once again, stuck his finger in the wind to be sure he says whatever voters want to hear.
In 2009, when he was running in a liberal Democratic Primary, he was absolutely against offshore drilling.
Now, in 2013, McAuliffe realized that even Democrats are for offshore drilling and he can’t wait to jump on the bandwagon.
This comes on the heels of Terry recently reversing his position on coal.
Virginia voters aren’t looking for a political opportunist for their governor. They’re looking for a candidate who has demonstrated leadership, kept his commitments, and delivered results.
