So if McAuliffe had such a masterful grasp of the Smithfield
problem how come he didn't address the issue himself?  I suspect that it wasn't part of his briefing book, and considering that he does not have any actual experience of the issue, having been totally involved in national and not Virginia politics at the time of the Smithfield controversy, he's just skating by talking about something else.  His answer was: enough about Smithfield, let's talk about chicken waste...

If Moran is so much in the pockets of Smithfield, please show where Brian has done anything to frustrate promotion and enforcement of environmental regulations aimed at Smithfield and other mega farms.  He cited his work on environmental threats to Virginia and for Chesapeake Bay cleanup.  He's got a good record on this issue.  As to Terry, well, since he doesn't actually have a record there's no record of his to research on the issue.  We'll just have to take his word for it that he thinks big stinky pig farms should be regulated.  Oh wait a minute, he didn't even say that.  So ... we actually don't know what his position on the issue is.  I don't even know if he's ever actually contributed any of his vast wealth to Chesapeake Bay cleanup.  He certainly hasn't served on and committees for it, or worked on legislation to enable it.
