Deeds Caught on Lack of Transportation Plan
– Deeds Answers Reporter Who Wondered When Details Would Come –

RICHMOND – Democratic candidate for governor Creigh Deeds once again has been exposed for having no transportation proposal for voters to consider – only a promise to raise gasoline taxes to pay for whatever it is he will dream up in the future.  Speaking to reporters following the Buena Vista Labor Day parade, Deeds was pressed on the issue by a member of the press corps.

Reporter: Are we gonna see something a little bit more detailed before the debate up in Fairfax?

Deeds: You know, Jeff, I’ve laid out a pretty detailed plan.

Well, It Depends on What you Mean by “Detailed” …
Waynesboro News-Virginian
“Republican Robert F. McDonnell has compiled a transportation plan while Democrat Creigh Deeds curiously has declared he won’t advance one until after – read, if – he gets elected.” 

“Deeds, on the essential subject of transportation and so far in this race, is standing at the starting blocks deaf to a starting gun that long since has sounded.”
Washington Post
“In response, R. Creigh Deeds, the Democratic candidate for governor, has pledged to come up with a solution in his first year in office but has offered no funding plan. He vows not to, saying that any proposal would be divisive and limit his ability to bring lawmakers together to agree on a solution once he’s elected.”
Richmond Times-Dispatch

“[Deeds’] vaunted transportation policy consists of . . . promising to build consensus, and an admission that he would sign a tax hike if one landed on his desk.”
Roanoke Times
“[A]s McDonnell points out, his opponent’s plan is so skimpy that he doesn’t even list transportation as a separate menu item on his Web site.
“We, too, have been disappointed in Democratic nominee Creigh Deeds’ dodge in presenting solutions to Virginia’s most pervasive problem.”
Washington Post (Again)

“Mr. Deeds, insofar as his published platform is concerned, has barely bothered to float a transportation program. Now, by stating that he’d sign a bill containing higher taxes for roads, he has at least tipped his hand.”

    McD is for TOLLS

    Creigh is not for tolls.

    That settles the matter for most Virginians.

    First, even if you don’t like it, McDonnell is at least offering solutions. Not like Creigh “Scarlet O’Hara I’ll think about it tomorrow” Deeds who says he’ll come up with a plan when(if) he’s elected.

    Second, aren’t you Democrats always harping that there’s not enough money in the budget to pay for roads? Why do you object to the people in Eastern Virginia and the out of state drivers on 94 paying for the roads rather than sending the bill to an 80-year-old widow in Lee County who has never been East of Roanoke?
