George Allen would get results

To the Editor:

When a Democrat wants to get elected, he talks like a Republican.

The problem with that is when you’re saying one thing, but believe in another, you’re lying every time your lips move.

It’s appalling and insulting the lies being told by Tim Kaine, suggesting that he cut spending and did such a great job as governor. Considering for the last 18 months of his term, he was outside of Virginia more than he was in it.

The truth is when Kaine left office, Virginia was billions of dollars in debt, and Kaine’s answer was to impose billions in taxes.

Thanks to Bob McDonnell, Virginia finally has a multi-million dollar surplus, something George Allen knows a lot about.

I was there when George opened the new Gateway factory in Hampton and reopened the failed Newmarket Fair Mall. George knows how to create jobs and a successful economy.

Tim Kaine only knows massive taxes followed by massive spending.

Given that we have a president who ignored intelligence briefings, sees his cabinet once a year and never meets with his jobs team, we need a leader in Washington.

George Allen gets results.
