Greentech Automotive president Charles Wang, on the dubious joys of partnering with Virginia gubernatorial hopeful Terry McAuliffe:
…there are days when Mr. Wang says he wishes he had never gone into business with a politically connected partner. “I learned a lot of things,” he said. “Politicians or people with political backgrounds are dangerous to business.”
Bolding mine – and get that up on a campaign ad, Ken Cuccinelli. I admit that it’s a bit tricky for the Attorney General to do so – he’s a politician himself – but, shoot: Republicans officially agree with McAuliffe’s own partner that politics and business don’t really mix well. As the last five years of Barack Obama’s crony corporatist capitalism have made blisteringly clear.
