George Allen isn't fooling anyone
April 2, 2012
As we highlighted at AllenFoolsDay.com yesterday, George "Allen... will need to answer critics from both sides who argue that he was 'part of the problem' during his time in Congress, which contradicts his new image of a reformer'." (Richmond Times Dispatch)
Progressive Point: We need leaders who will fight for Virginia families. But the only folks George Allen has a record of fighting for are oil and gas companies. Virginia families don't want elected officials that they can't trust to represent their interests.
George Allen's taken hundreds of millions of dollars from the oil industry while denying global warming. He opposes maintaining a safety net for those Virginians who need a hand up, but supports corporate welfare for record profit-making gas companies. He's built a record on inconsistency, ideology, and irreverence for making tough choices and sticking to his word. Virginians value deeds, not words--and George Allen isn't fooling anyone.
