Deeds flipflop on ABC

Creigh Deeds likes rearranging what’s on the table and off the table.

Today, it’s privatizing state-run ABC stores.

“The Deeds campaign said the Democrat is not necessarily opposed to privatizing ABC, saying it could be a piece of the puzzle to raise revenue. ‘It’s an option that should be on the table,’ Deeds campaign spokesman Jared Leopold said in the Washington Post.

But that was July 22. Three weeks is too long for Deeds to keep the same position.

“Deeds said McDonnell’s plan to privatize state-run ABC stores to generate revenue for transportation is not a viable option because proceeds from ABC sales are used to fund other programs. (Martinsville Bulletin)

RPV Chairman Pat Mullins quipped, “You practically have to set up a spreadsheet to chart which position Deeds has on any given issue on any given day. First he’s for it, then he’s against it. Or vice versa. Or something.”

Oh…and NOW Creigh Deeds says he’s against a tax increase, too.

At this rate, Deeds will be pro-life by Labor Day.

“No wonder he won’t agree to a full schedule of debates,” Chairman Mullins said. “He must spend most of every day having a lively discussion with himself.”
