‘He’s a Super Party Animal...’



Text  



Does Terry McAuliffe remind you of someone?

He’s not really up to speed on the little details of the office he seeks, like what positions are in the governor’s cabinet:

In a recent interview, McAuliffe wouldn’t give specific responses when asked about technical aspects of legislative and governor’s office operations. Asked if he could name the positions in the governor’s Cabinet, for instance, McAuliffe said: “Maybe could, maybe couldn’t. That’s not what I’m going to do here today because that’s not what I’m talking about.”

He’s the kind of fun-loving, daring, risk-taking guy willing to practice law before a Delaware justice of the peace after drinking heavily.

He’s been a pitchman for Inauguration memorabilia on QVC.

He’s talked about how he saved Bill Clinton’s presidency – “the Clinton presidency was on the line”- with his June 22, 1995, fundraiser at the Garden State Convention Center in Somerset, New Jersey.

He’s detailed how he saved the Clinton’s Millennial Celebration, “the greatest party ever on the Mall and at the White House.”

He’s been a Democratic Party fundraiser his entire adult life.

He’s a “party animal” in every sense of the word.

Hey, that’s it!

That’s who he reminds me of! Terry McAuliffe is like a human Spuds McKenzie!
