Tying the Health Care Debate to the Virginia Governor’s Race
Office of Management and Budget Director Peter Orzag says a health care bill can be completed in six weeks, based upon the Senate finance committee’s model. Six weeks…that puts the due date right around the time of the election here in Virginia (and New Jersey). Naturally, this has tongues wagging that the success or failure of health care could depend upon the outcome of the | Read More »
Kill Obamacare Through a Backdoor
I went to a Virginia Conservative Campaign Fund party last night for Ken Cuccinelli, Bob McDonnell, and Bill Bolling.If you will recall, in 1993 the Republicans took over Virginia. It was a clear signal to the nation that a backlash was coming against the Democrats. Consequently, the Democrats ran for cover and Bill Clinton’s liberal agenda was largely shut down.If McDonnell, Bolling, and Cuccinelli sweep | Read More »
Creigh Deeds panics on tax question.
The whole thing is here (and here), but I wanted to highlight this part: Well, that and I wanted to try out my new video editing software. I think that it looks better. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Creigh Deeds: Not Ready for Prime Time
Deer. Headlights. “I think I made myself clear.” Do you think so? Contribute to Bob McDonnell here.
Creigh Deeds, Big Fat Bigot
Or at least, he is by the standard applied to Bob McDonnell. The sharp-eyed folks over at the Weekly Standard spotted a full-page ad starring Creigh Deeds’ statements in a full-page advertisement in the October 29, 1999 Bath County Recorder regarding “special rights for gays:” NO SPECIAL RIGHTS FOR GAYS I don’t believe in discrimination, but I don’t believe in special rights for anyone. I | Read More »
NRO’s Geraghty Breaks Up With The WaPo
I like Geraghty anyway, but this is both accurate and funny: And today, in a front-page story, the Post feels the need to rehash how Bob McDonnell responded to a 2003 question of whether he committed sodomy. Never mind that he’s served as the state’s attorney general since then. Never mind all the other issues affecting a state that’s still deep in recession and with | Read More »
I’m adopting McDonnell, R-VA
Because if we can’t win a race with that guy, in this state, we should cede all of America to the idiot hordes of Massachusetts. Seriously, we deserve to lose if we can’t rally ’round McDonnell. So here’s what I propose: Find me everything, every tip, every rumor, every speeding ticket that Creigh Deeds has ever gotten. If he looked funny at a cop, I | Read More »
Bob McDonnell’s “Macaca” Moment – And How He Can Get Past It
2006; Senator George Allen is running for re-election against former Republican Jim Webb. Despite the polls everywhere showing that the GOP was going to have a very unhappy Election Night in a few weeks, Allen was comfortably ahead and already planning his next six years in Washington DC representing the Commonwealth of Virginia. Then he (as he says), derisively referring to a video stalker working | Read More »
A 20 Year Ago Thesis Is Bigger News Than Van Jones, According to Washington Post
We now have definitive proof that the Washington Post is intentionally generating in-kind contributions to the Creigh Deeds campaign in Virginia.Having taken out George Allen over his macaca comment, the Washington Post intends to politically assassinate Virginia Attorney General Bob McDonnell for his college thesis written over 20 years ago.How do we know? Because of their coverage of Green Jobs Czar Van Jones. The Washington | Read More »
The pen is mightier…but the hypocrisy smells worse
The classic political game of dig the skeletons out of the closet is back in full force in Virginia’s gubernatorial race. This latest round cites Democrat Creigh Deeds, with the help of the Washington Post, against Republican Bob McDonnell. This looks eerily familiar to what happened in 2006 during the VA Senate race between Webb and Allen. Webb had written an article in the late | Read More »
Creigh Deeds(H-VA): The Hypocrat Candidate for Governor
First of all, who in god’s good name is Creigh Deeds? I’ve never heard of a man with a last name as his first, and an act kindness for a last name. But in any event, Mr. Deeds and his leftist allies in Virginia take a play out of the old Democrat strategy guide and now they’re trying to halt GOP candidate Bob McDonnell by | Read More »
Isn’t there a television show that does this sort of thing? Countdown With Keith Olbermann Jackass, or something like that? Bob McDonnell’s campaign received a call this morning from a woman who called herself “Jennifer” and claimed to be a freelance reporter from the Connection newspapers in Northern Virginia. She asked for information about McDonnell’s schedule. The problem? She isn’t a reporter. She actually works | Read More »
Washington Post Examines His Thesis. Finds an Honest Man Who Keeps His Word.
Finally, twenty years after it was written and several major campaigns he’s run, the Washington Post is finally picking apart his college thesis.No, I’m not talking about Barack Obama. The Washington Post never bothered to track down and examine the college thesis of Barack Obama. But, it has found the twenty year old thesis of Bob McDonnell, the Republican candidate for Governor of Virginia.With Creigh | Read More »
GOP Rising Tide ’09: It Came From the States
I have written before of the paramount importance of governors in providing leadership to the Republican Party and to our country. One my joys this year has been to work closely with Governors Haley Barbour and Tim Pawlenty in my role as Chairman of the Republican Governor’s Association Executive Roundtable. My view is that we are poised to win the two gubernatorial races this year | Read More »

Maybe Deeds could try to hit McDonnell with his car?
Ha! Got it right this time. Anyway, this video from the VA GOP: …is a nice supplement to this WaPo article (via Jim Newell, who seems a bit bitter): Democratic gubernatorial candidate R. Creigh Deeds is running behind his Republican opponent in a recent Washington Post poll in large part because he has yet to win over voters in populous, Democratic-leaning Northern Virginia.
