Profiles in Leadership: Bob McDonnell

Yes, I’m being sarcastic, as usual.

Richmond Times-Dispatch:

“I don’t have a particular plan or vision,” said McDonnell when queried yesterday in a conference call with reporters on how he would fix the 2007 transportation plan gutted last month by the Virginia Supreme Court.

And then there’s the lying:

The state Supreme Court threw out as illegal a provision of the transportation plan — modified by Democratic Gov. Timothy M. Kaine with the consent the then-GOP controlled legislature — that would allow an unelected regional authority in Northern Virginia to impose taxes to finance bonds for highways and mass transit.

“I was not consulted on those amendments,” McDonnell said of the governor’s revisions.

Kaine spokesman Gordon Hickey has said the attorney general was told of the changes.
